We will keep your information on a secure server. The technology that we use and the security policies, which we have implemented are intended to safeguard your information from unauthorised access and improper use.
We follow appropriate security procedures in the storage and disclosure of personal information so as to prevent unauthorised access by third parties. We also require those parties to whom we transfer personal information to comply with the same. However, unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. So, whilst Hawaii will do its best to protect your personal data, we cannot ensure the security of data transmitted by you to the Site. Any transmission is at your own risk and you acknowledge and agree that we shall not be responsible for any unauthorised use, distribution, damage or destruction of personal data, except to the extent we are required to accept such responsibility by the Act. Once we have received your information we will use security procedures and features to prevent unauthorised access to it.
We may use information held about you in the following ways:
to ensure that the Site’s content is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer;
to respond to any enquiry you make;
to provide you with information, products or services that you request from us or which we feel may interest you;
to allow you to participate in interactive features of our service where you choose to do so;
to notify you about changes to our service.
We may also disclose your information (subject in each case to the requirements of the Act) as follows:
We may disclose your personal information to third parties:
if Hawaii’s acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by us about our customers will be transferred to such third party;
if we are required to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation or in order to enforce or apply our Terms and Conditions or any other agreement; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Hawaii, our customers, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for protection against credit risk and fraud.
Subject to your consent we may also use your data or permit selected third parties to use your data to provide you with information about goods and services of those third parties, which may be of interest to you.
We do not disclose individual information without your consent, but we may provide third parties with aggregated, anonymised information about our users. We may also use such aggregate information to help advertisers reach the kind of audience they want to target. We would comply with our advertisers’ wishes by displaying their advertisement to that target audience using the personal data we have collected from you and from others.
When you join our email newsletter services the emails you receive may include advertising material and links to advertisers’ web sites. This does not mean that your details have been passed to the advertiser in question. Furthermore, at the end of each newsletter you will find either a hyperlink or a description of a route to have yourself removed from further editions of that newsletter.
You have the right to request us not to disclose any of your personal data or information or to pass information to third parties. We will usually inform you before collecting your data if we intend to disclose your information to any third party and you can exercise that right by checking certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your data.
The Act also gives you the right to access information held about you.
