Some cookies and other technologies may serve to recall Personal Information previously indicated by a web user. Most browsers allow you to control cookies, including whether or not to accept them and how to remove them.

Where Kiawah Island Golf Resort collects Personal Information on the web, we intend to post a purpose statement that explains why Personal Information will be collected and whether we plan to share such Personal Information outside of Kiawah Island Golf Resort or those working on Kiawah Island Golf Resorts’ behalf. Kiawah Island Golf Resort does not intend to transfer Personal Information without your consent to third parties who are not bound to act on Kiawah Island Golf Resorts’ behalf unless such transfer is legally required.
You may choose whether or not to provide Personal Information to Kiawah Island Golf Resort. The notice we intend to provide where Kiawah Island Golf Resort collects Personal Information on the web should help you to make this choice. If you choose not to provide the Personal Information we request, you can still visit most of Kiawah Island Golf Resort’s web site, but you may be unable to access certain options, offers and services that involve our interaction with you.
If you chose to have a relationship with Kiawah Island Golf Resort, such as a contractual or other business relationship or partnership, we will naturally continue to contact you in connection with that business relationship.
Wherever your Personal Information may be held within Kiawah Island Golf Resort or on its behalf, we intend to take reasonable and appropriate steps to protect the Personal Information that you share with us from unauthorized access or disclosure. All your ordering information — including your name, address, and credit card number — is encrypted using a secure server for maximum security.
For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, Kiawah Island Golf Resort web servers employ industry-standard methods to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage. Unauthorized attempts to upload information or change information on Kiawah Island Golf Resort servers are strictly prohibited and may be punishable by law, including the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986 and the National Information Infrastructure Protection Act.
In the specific context of this security monitoring, there is no expectation of privacy. However, only in the case of actual law enforcement investigations, will we attempt to identify individual users or their usage habits.
Access / Accuracy
To the extent that you do provide us with Personal Information, Kiawah Island Golf Resort wishes to maintain accurate Personal Information. Where we collect Personal Information from you on the web, our goal is to provide a means of contacting Kiawah Island Golf Resort should you need to update or correct that Information. If for any reason those means are unavailable or inaccessible, you may send updates and corrections about your Personal Information to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will make reasonable efforts to incorporate the changes in your Personal Information that we hold as soon as practicable.
Kiawah Island Golf Resort’s website is not structured to attract children. Accordingly, we do not intend to collect Personal Information from anyone we know to be under 13 years of age.
We are committed to privacy, and are actively involved in and support current industry initiatives to preserve individual privacy rights on the Internet. Protecting your privacy on-line is an evolving area, and Kiawah Island Golf Resort’s web sites are constantly evolving to meet these demands.
