Method of Collection of Information
Silver Springs / Obasa Group does not collect personally identifiable information when you browse the Silver Springs / Obasa Group website unless you voluntarily and knowingly provide such information. This means that we will not know your name, your email address, or any other personally identifiable information just because you browse the website unless you:
access our website from a link in an email that we sent;
have created a profile requesting log-in capability.
When we do need to collect personally identifiable information from you, we will ask you, your employer, your relocation company or travel agency to voluntarily supply us with the information we need. For example, if you would like to make a reservation at one of our properties, we will ask you for information such as name, address, telephone number, email address, credit card number and room preference to process your reservation. We may collect this information directly from you by telephone, fax, email, at the counter, upon completion of an application or enrollment form, or through your use of our website.
Information may also be collected as part of: (i) fulfilling reservation or information requests, (ii) submitting a job application, (iii) responding to communications from us or our affiliates (e.g., surveys, promotional offers, or reservation confirmations). We endeavor to collect information only with your knowledge and with your permission if necessary.
