Why is California Hotels so safe?
Safe Technology: We employ security measures such as Secure Socket Layer technology (SSL) to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of your personal information. SSL, which is utilized by most popular browsers, including Netscape and Microsoft Explorer, provides the advanced encryption tools necessary to protect information transmitted between your computer and our server. Encryption simply means that your information is converted into code before it is dispatched over the Internet. Our secure server encrypts all personal information, including your name, address, and credit card information, so that it cannot be read as it is transmitted over the Internet when you make a reservation.
When making a reservation online, we also employ Virtual Private Network technology (VPN) to encrypt your personal information when sharing it with a third party vendor.
1. Under the Fair Credit Billing Act, your credit card company can not hold you liable for more than $50.00 of fraudulent charges. If your credit card company does hold you liable for any of this $50.00, we will cover the entire liability for you, up to the full $50.00. We will only cover this liability if the unauthorized use of your credit card resulted through no fault of your own from purchases made at California Hotels while using the secure server.
2. In the event of unauthorized use of your credit card, you must notify your credit card provider in accordance with its reporting rules and procedures.
