employ security measures such as Secure Socket Layer
technology (SSL) to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of
your personal information. SSL, which is utilized by most
popular browsers, including Netscape and Microsoft Explorer,
provides the advanced encryption tools necessary to protect
information transmitted between your computer and our server.
Encryption simply means that your information is converted
into code before it is dispatched over the Internet. Our
secure server encrypts all personal information, including
your name, address, and credit card information, so that it
cannot be read as it is transmitted over the Internet when you
make a reservation.
CharlestonArea.com will never
disclose or sell any of your personal information, including
your name, address, shopping, or transaction history to any
third party without your permission. When you make a
reservation online or by phone through our customer support
center, you will be asked for your name, address, phone
number, email address and credit card information. This
information is shared with the hotel that you have chosen. We
will only share information with the hotel that is necessary
to process your reservation. Your credit card information will
be used by the hotel to guarantee your reservation..
