The policy sets out the different areas where user privacy is concerned and outlines the obligations & requirements of the users, the website and website owners. Furthermore, the way this website processes, stores and protects user data and information will also be detailed within this policy. This website and its owners take a proactive approach to user privacy and ensure the necessary steps are taken to protect the privacy of its users throughout their visiting experience.
We obtain information about you when you use our website, for example, when you contact us about our services or to ask a question, book an appointment through our booking system, review/sign a proposal or contract for work, make a payment through our accounting system, contact us through social media, or if you register to receive our newsletter.
The personal information we collect might include your name, address, email address, IP address, and information regarding what web pages are accessed and when.
We may use your personal information to:
- receive/reply to an enquiry that you have made;
- process appointments that you have booked;
- process orders and payments that you have made;
- to carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into by you and us;
- seek your views or comments on the services we provide;
- publish comment(s) that you have submitted on our blog;
- notify you of changes to our services;
- send you communications which you have requested and that may be of interest to you. We will not contact you for marketing purposes unless you have given your prior consent.
We review our retention periods for personal information on a regular basis. We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity, or until such time as you request that we delete your information.
We will not sell or rent your information to third parties. We will not share your information with third parties for marketing purposes.
We may pass your information to our third-party service providers, agents, subcontractors and other associated organisations for the purposes of completing tasks and providing services to you on our behalf (for example to process payments or send the email newsletter). However, when we use third party service providers, we disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the service and we have a contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure and not to use it for their own direct marketing purposes.
When you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that it’s treated securely. Any sensitive information (such as credit or debit card details) is encrypted and protected with a minimum 128 Bit encryption on SSL. When you are on a secure page, a lock icon will appear next to the web address.
Non-sensitive details (e.g., name, email address) are transmitted over the Internet, and although this website and any other systems we use for data capture use SSL protection, we cannot guarantee that the data will be 100% secure when it is transmitted. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us through enquiry forms, registration forms, or email enquiries, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
If you change email address, or any of the other information we hold is inaccurate or out of date, you can contact us here to request that we update it, or you can use the link included at the bottom of our email newsletter.
You have the right to ask for a copy of the information that we hold about you. You also have the right to request that we delete the information that we hold about you.
To make such a request, you can contact us using the form on this page, or by writing to us at Krabi Spesialisten Ltd., 155/13-15 Moo 3, Ao Nang, Muang Krabi, 81180, Thailand.
Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. These pieces of information are used to make the website work or improve services for you through, for example:
- enabling a service to recognise your device so you don’t have to give the same information several times during one task
- recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested
- measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there’s enough capacity to ensure they are fast
