Use and Disclosure of Personal Information
Personal information is information or an opinion that is recorded in any form or communication with AHA, whether true or not, about an individual whose identity is apparent or can reasonably be ascertained. Personal information that is collected by AHA will be disclosed to AHA employees and contractors where duties require them to use it. Such employees and contractors are required to protect and handle your information only in relation to the job at hand.
If AHA receives telephone, email or other online enquiries requesting your details, AHA will generally not pass your details onto the person but pass on the details to you to decide whether to contact. In the event that an authority requests details about your booking this must be done through official means. This is generally in writing and on company letterhead. In the event that debts are incurred as part of staying with AHA, we reserve the right to pass on your details to an approved authority or debt collection agency. Credit card details will not be held beyond the duration of any deposit and booking for accommodation.
