This Concerns Us All!

INTRODUCTION

Dean's Gold has the highest commitment to customer satisfaction, including the protection of your personal privacy when communicating or doing business with us through our website. We understand that you may have questions about what information we collect from visitors to our website and how we use that information. This Privacy Policy Statement is intended to inform you of the principles that govern our operation of this website as it relates to personal identifying information about you.

BROWSING

You may browse this website anonymously. We do not collect any information about your computer, your email address, or any other information identifiable to you merely by reason of your having visited our website. Such information is collected only if you voluntarily choose to provide it to us.

THE TYPE OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT

When you choose to communicate with us, or do to business with us, such as making a reservation or requesting other services from us, we will ask you to provide us voluntarily with the information that we need to respond to your request.

For example, if you would like to reserve a table, we will ask you for name, address, telephone number, facsimile number, email address, and certain information about the type of table you request or other special needs you may have during your visit with us. We may also ask you to provide us with type, number, cardholder, and expiration date of the credit card you intend to use to reserve your table and insure payment. We would request the same type of information from you if you asked us to provide you with other services, such as food and beverage service.

Any credit card information you provide to us is transferred over a Secured Sockets Layer (SSL) line provided that your browser is SSL enabled, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator. An SSL line transmits information in an encrypted form. You will know if the information you are providing is being sent in an encrypted form if a "padlock" icon appears in the lower right corner of your computer screen, and the padlock is in a closed position.

Any information that we receive from you over a SSL line is stored on one of our computer servers that has features that are intended to block access by persons who do not have prior authorization from us to use the information. The persons we authorize to access information stored on our secure computer servers are our employees or agents who have a need to know this information in order that we may provide you with the services you requested, and to arrange for authorized payment for such services, and accounting of such funds.

We may also from time to time invite you to complete a customer survey about the quality of the services we provided to you, and invite you to suggest improvements we can make, or additional services that we could provide to you. Your participation in such surveys is voluntary. We will use the information you provide to us as we develop plans to improve and broaden the services we provide to our customers and guests.

OUR USE OF INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE TO US

When you provide us information in response to a service or promotion we make available on our website, or to reserve a table at our facility, we use that information only for the purpose indicated on our website. When you provide us with information that we request, we do, however, presume that you have agreed to allow us to use the information to provide the services you requested. For example, when we ask you to provide us with your email address, and you do so, we assume that you have authorized us to communicate with you using the email address you provided, including sending you confirmation information about your room reservation.

Similarly, we may ask on our website if you wish to receive information from us about upcoming events and promotions. If you do not indicate otherwise, we will periodically send this information to you by email. If you do not wish to receive this type of information, you may indicate your preference on our website, or advise us separately of your desire that we discontinue this type of communication.

You should understand, however, that information transmitted to or from our website via email is not secure. This is an unavoidable characteristic of email communications. Please be aware of this when sending us information by email. For example, do not send us any credit card information by email, or any other private information that may cause losses or injury if intercepted by an unauthorized person or entity. Our email responses to you will not include any confidential information.

We will never voluntarily share any of your personal identifying information with any third party without your prior consent, nor use it for any unrelated commercial purpose. Our website and business, however, is subject to the jurisdiction of the United States Government, and one or more of its state subdivisions. We will comply with any order of a federal or state court of competent jurisdiction, or any requirement of law or regulation, that mandates disclosure of your personal identifying information. We further reserve the right to disclose such information if we form a good faith belief that such disclosure is necessary to protect the person or property of our guests, employees, or our company (including this website).

LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES

From time to time we may create links from our website to the websites of other companies or service providers who are not affiliated with us. If you activate one of these links you will leave our website and be connected to the site of the other entity. We are not responsible for the privacy policies of any of the other websites that you may visit via a link from our website.

CHANGES TO OUR PRIVACY POLICY

From time to time, we may modify this Privacy Policy. All changes will be promptly posted at this location on our website, and such changes will be prospective only and not take effect until they are posted at this location. But because we may make changes to this Policy, we urge you to visit our website and review this Policy Statement on a regular basis.
