We are committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you the most powerful and secure online experience. In the case of online bookings and enquiry form submission, we collect your personal information, and this statement of privacy explains data collection and use in those situations.


We will ask you when we need information that personally identifies you (personal information) or allows us to contact you. Generally, this information is requested when you are booking via the website or filling out one of our enquiry forms.

No credit card information is stored by us, and we are Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI) compliant. When making a booking, your reservation is secure as soon as you complete the final step in the booking process.

To make the site easier for you to use by not making you enter your personal information more than once.
To help you quickly find services or information on this web.
To help us create and deliver content most relevant to you.
To alert you to special offers, updated information, and other new services from any of the four companies involved in this hub.

We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf. We will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.

We will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to:

conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on the Explore Hokianga site,
protect and defend the rights or property of Explore Hokianga and its family of Web sites, and
