What Information We Collect

Info-rotorua uses DPS who stores all payment information through a secure payment gateway.

In an effort to keep our service as simple and easy as possible, we do not create, use or store profiles of our customers. We only record PII and other information that we reasonably require to do business with you. On all Info-rotorua pages that collect PII, we specifically describe what information is required in order to provide you with the product or service you request.

We collect PII when you:

How We Protect Your Information

To ensure the confidentiality of your PII, we use leading security technology and procedures that are regularly reviewed and updated.

Info-rotorua uses DPS who stores all payment information through a secure payment gateway.

When you send PII to us over the Internet, your data is protected by Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to ensure safe transmission.

How We Keep Your Credit Card Details Secure

We take securing your credit card details seriously.

As soon as you click the Book button, DPS use industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to connect you to our secure payment page. You'll notice a padlock symbol appear in the header or footer of your browser. SSL ensures that any information you enter is encrypted before it goes anywhere. It's changed into a code with over 300,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (300 quadrillion) different combinations! This scrambled data can't be read as it travels across the Internet.

We don't transmit your credit card details over the Internet again once your booking is complete, and we don't share them with anyone else - not even the property you have booked.
