Protecting Your Information
We maintain reasonable physical, electronic, and organizational security measures to protect your information against accidental or unlawful destruction or accidental loss, alteration, or unauthorized disclosure or access. We use Secure Socket Layer technology to encrypt credit card information during transit. Through your personal account, you also have the ability to save credit card details for faster future bookings and payments. Your card details are encrypted and you can always log in to your personal account to delete, edit, or add certain credit card details. For security reasons, the number cannot be edited (but the card details can be deleted). When viewing card details, only the last 4 digits of the number will be visible. Please note that we will store the last 4 digits of your credit card securely upon any booking made (this is required to manage any refund requests for that booking).
We will retain your personal data, including Sensitive Personal Data, for as long as necessary to provide and secure our Sites and services, and to exercise our legal rights, protect our or other’s interests, and comply with our legal or regulatory obligations. We decide how long we need information on a case-by-case basis. When hurghadaday.com no longer needs to use your information, we will – unless we need to keep your information to comply with applicable legal or regulatory obligations or the information is required to carry out corporate tasks and conduct our business – remove it from our systems and records where feasible, and/or deactivate it or take other reasonable steps to properly anonymize it so that you can no longer be identified from it.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where your data is sent
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
A Special Note About Minors
Our Site is not directed to minors under the age of 18. Where required by applicable law, we may ask for certain information about children from parents or guardians to process a booking or provide other services. If you are a parent, and believe we may have inadvertently collected personal data from a minor, please notify us, and we will remove that personal data and unsubscribe that minor from any of our electronic marketing lists. Minors can normally accompany their parent(s) or legal custodian(s) who have booked an accommodation, unless prohibited by an accommodation property’s policies.
