HomeyHawaii.com ("we", "us", "our", the "Site") has set this Privacy Policy in place to detail how we use and protect any information provided to us by visitors of the Site.

In the event that we request certain information about you, then you can expect the information to be handled and used in accordance with this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy shall be subject to change at any time and for any reason at the Site's sole discretion. Therefore, it is in your best interest to revisit the Privacy Policy from time-to-time to make sure you are abiding by the most recently updated version of the Privacy Policy.

Throughout this Privacy Policy, we will often use the terms "users" or "you" to refer to travelers who use the Site to look for properties to rent, property owners and managers who list properties for rent on the Site and other users who use software or other tools or services we provide on the Site. It also applies to other visitors to the Site.

This Privacy Policy was last updated on the date set forth above and applies from that date.
