PRIVACY AND SECURITY STATEMENT OF CDL
We at CDL undertake to our customers to gather from them only such information as is appropriate to provide the very best of villa and apartment holidays in our highly select range of properties, to use that information appropriately and to protect it in accordance with the law and best practice. Our detailed policy on this is as follows:

1 The electronic booking enquiries you send via our web site
2 The hard copy booking request form we ask you to submit for booking purposes
3 Telephone conversations and e-mails between you and our personnel,
4 Live chats using tawk.to or skype
5 Your response to the check-in form we send you to facilitate the process of your arrival

Some information is collected by us automatically when you send us e-mails or contact us through our websites. The automated processes used by us can include, for example, protocols by web servers or IP addresses and cookies.
What are web server protocols/IP addresses?
An IP address is a number allocated to your computer for accessing the internet. Every computer is identified on the internet by an IP address. This makes it possible for computers and servers to identify and communicate with one another on the internet. CDL collects IP addresses for system management purposes, and to provide Group companies, business partners and/or suppliers with statistics, analyze sites, and monitor website performance.
What are cookies?
We may hold such information in hard copy or store it electronically.
INFORMATION WE DO NOT HOLD

We will receive credit and debit card details only by prior arrangement with you, and after you have completed, signed and returned a specific Payment Authorisation Form. We keep no records of your credit or debit card details. After the payment is processed, the file will be deleted and hard copy documents will be destroyed.
USE OF YOUR INFORMATION
We will use your information to advise you on and plan villa and apartment holidays, and to respond to your enquiries. We may also use it to send you communications, newsletters and the like to inform you of opportunities, bargains and items of interest from time to time. You can tell us at any time and by any method that you don't wish to receive these, and we will delete you from our mailing list.
SHARING YOUR INFORMATION
CDL DOES NOT SELL OR HIRE YOUR INFORMATION TO ANYONE. We may, at your request or with your consent, pass information to our trusted associates for the purposes of providing additional services during your stay at our properties. These may include taxi or car hire firms, boat rentals, cooks, chefs and catering services, guides, language teachers and translators, by way of example only.
CONTROL OF YOUR INFORMATION
If you should have any questions or wish CDL to change or delete your profile, please inform us of this in writing (by post) at the following address:
We will correct your information as soon as we know it is incorrect. You can request a copy of your information at any time. On your request we will delete all personal information held other than your name and contact details.
COMMUNICATIONS FROM US
You will receive a series of communications from us at the time of booking, paying initial deposit, paying any balance due, for check-in purposes prior to arrival, at and after check-out.
The security of your information is paramount. We hold financial data only to the extent this is provided to us in statements from our banks. These do not include any identifiable credit card details. We gather credit card details only by telephone and keep no written or electronic records of them.
