Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us.

Accordingly, we have developed this Policy in order for you to understand how we collect, use, communicate and disclose and make use of personal information.

But Privacy matters however it can be confusing. This page explains our approach to privacy on all our Dreaming of Maldives websites and blogs and how it affects you.

Short version

-We collect anonymous statistics about your visit, like which of our pages you viewed.
-Some 3rd parties like Facebook and Twitter may know you visited this website, if you use their services. We can’t control them but we don’t believe this knowledge poses any threat to you.
-If you sign up with us we take great care to keep your information safe and we’ll never share it with others without your express permission.
-We never share your data with 3rd parties ( Social Medias, Third Parties like Social Medias, Hotels, Online Booking systems, Google Ads…) except to help us deliver our own services.

These are just the key points. If you need detail, keep reading.

Long version

Measuring our visitors

We measure visitors to our website using Google Analytics. This records what pages you view within our site, how you arrived at our site and some basic information about your computer. All of that information is anonymous – so we don’t know who you are; just that somebody visited our site.

The information we collect from analytics helps us understand what parts of our sites are doing well, how people arrive at our site and so on. Like most websites, we use this information to make our website better.

You can learn more about Google Analytics or opt out if you wish.

  • We collect information you provide us (nickname and email) and your user agent when you submit forms or make comments.
  • Your email will also be collected when you subscribe to our newsletter. We use a reputable and trusted service called Mailchimp for newsletter service.
  • We will never ask you for credit card information and we urge you not to write any such information on the forms of the website.
  • We use cookies to compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future
  • We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you enter or submit your personal information on forms.
  • We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information.


This website uses Google Analytics. Please refer to the following policies on Google’s website for detailed information:

These are the outlines on the types of personal information received and collected by us and how it is used.

Log files

Like many other Web sites, Dreaming of makes use of log files.
The information inside the log files includes internet protocol ( IP ) addresses, type of browser, Internet Service Provider ( ISP ), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses, and other such information are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable.

Cookies and web beacons

We do use cookies to store information about visitors preferences, record user-specific information on which pages the user access or visit, customize Web page content based on visitors browser type or other information that the visitor sends via their browser.

Google Ad

.:: Google, as a third party vendor, uses cookies to serve ads on

.:: Google uses cookies to serve ads to users based on their visit to and other sites on the Internet.

.:: Users may opt out of the use of  Google Ad cookie policy by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy at the following URL –

If you wish to disable cookies, you may do so through your individual browser options. More detailed information about cookie management with specific web browsers can be found at the browsers’ respective websites.

Facebook, Twitter and other social networks

These services provide social buttons and similar features which we use on our website – such as the “Like” and “Tweet” buttons.

To do so we embed code that they provide and we do not control ourselves. To function their buttons generally know if you’re logged in; for example Facebook use this to say “x of your friends like this”. We do not have any access to that information, nor can we control how those networks use it.

Social networks therefore could know that you’re viewing this website, if you use their services (that isn’t to say they do, but their policies may change). As our website is remarkably inoffensive we imagine this is not a concern for most users.

If you sign up for a service

When you sign up for any of our services – paid or otherwise – we will record specific personal information about you, such as your name and email address.

We will also collect and store information about your use of our services so as to improve them. For example, we keep a log of what features are being used at any time.

We also log account and transaction history for accounting purposes, and to monitor our business activities.


We may send you email notifications regarding your service or which you have specifically requested (such as newsletters or notifications when a report is completed). You have the ability to opt out of any of this communication at any time.

We will never provide your personal information or email address to any third parties except where they are specifically employed to help deliver our own services, as detailed above.

Online payment

We use Paypal to bill for our products online.

We share information with Paypal only to the extent necessary for the purposes of processing payments you make via our website.

You are responsible for keeping your password and user details confidential.
Nobody at Dreaming of Maldives will ever ask you for your password, so please don’t trust anybody asking you for it.
