Privacy Policy


Welcome To The C-AFRICA Privacy Policy

This privacy policy explains; how we collect, use process, and disclose your information across the C-A Platform. The “C-A Platform” refers to C-AFRICA’ (“C-A”) websites, our mobile, tablet, and other smart applications, and all associated C-A services. When this policy mentions “C-A,” “we,” “us,” or “our,” it refers to the C-AFRICA company that is responsible for your information under this privacy policy (the “Data Controller”). In this policy, we use a few terms which are defined as follows: A “Member” is anyone who has registered a C-A account, including Suppliers and Guests. A “Supplier” is someone who offers services (“Supplier Services”) via published listings on the C-A Platform (“Listings”). A “Guest” is someone who books or seeks to book Supplier Services. “Accommodation” means a vacation or other property. “Payment Services” means any payment processing services provided through or in connection with a Member’s use of the C-A Platform.


1. Information We Collect

There are three general categories of information that we collect.


1.1. Information You Give Us

We collect the information you share with us when you use the C-A Platform to ensure the adequate performance of contracts between you and C-A or between you and a Supplier. The provision of this information is necessary to use the C-A Platform and, without it, we will not be able to provide you with the services that you request.

Account Information

When you sign up for a C-A account or submit a request for Accommodation booking information, we require certain information such as your name and email address.

Profile Information

To use certain features within the C-A Platform, we may need to ask you to complete a profile, which may include your address and phone number.

Other Authentication-Related Information

To help create and maintain a trusted environment, and to the extent permitted by applicable laws, we may collect identification that you provide (like a photo of your government-issued ID) or other authentication information.

Payment Information

When you use the Payment Services (such as when booking Accommodation or a travel-related experience through us or establishing a Supplier relationship via us), we require certain financial information (like your bank account or credit card information) to process payments and comply with applicable law. If you are a Supplier, we may require additional information such as your ID or tax ID (where permitted by applicable law), and other proof of identification or verification to verify your identity, provide the payment services to you, and comply with applicable law. If you are a Guest, we may retain your financial information to assist you with booking travel-related experiences with third parties.

Communications with C-A

When you communicate with C-A, we collect information about your communication and any information you choose to provide.

Other Information

You may otherwise choose to provide us with the information (such as your itinerary, food allergies, emergency contact information, travel preferences, and information about other Guests accompanying you on your stay) when you fill in a form, speak to, or otherwise communicate with a C-A representative, conduct a search, update or add information to your C-A account, respond to surveys, participate in promotions, or use other features of the C-A Platform.


1.2. Information We Automatically Collect From Your Use of The C-A Platform

Usage Information

We collect information about your interactions with the C-A Platform, such as the pages or other content you view, your searches for villas, bookings you have made, the experiences and activities you book with others through us, and other actions on the C-A Platform.

Location Information

When you use certain features of the C-A Platform, we may collect different types of information about your general location (e.g. IP address, zip code).

Log Data

We automatically collect log information when you use the C-A Platform, even if you have not created a C-A account or logged in. That information includes, among other things: details about how you’ve used the C-A Platform (including if you clicked on links to third-party applications), IP address, access times, hardware and software information, device information, device event information (e.g., crashes, browser type), unique identifiers, and the page you’ve viewed or engaged with before or after using the C-A Platform.

Transaction Information

We collect information related to your transactions on the C-A Platform or transactions made through the C-A Platform, including the date and time, amounts charged, and other related transaction details.

Cookies and Similar Technologies

We use cookies and other similar technologies, such as web beacons, pixels, and mobile identifiers. We may also allow our business partners to use these tracking technologies on the C-A Platform, or engage others to track your behavior on our behalf. You may disable the usage of cookies through your browser settings. For more information on our use of these technologies, see our Cookies Policy.

California Do Not Track Disclosure

We are committed to providing you with meaningful choices about the information collected on the C-A Platform for third-party purposes, which is why we provide in our Cookies Policy the Network Advertising Initiatives Consumer Opt-out link, Digital Advertising Alliances Consumer Opt-Out Link, and Google Analytics opt-out the link. However, we do not recognize or respond to browser-initiated Do Not Track signals.


1.3. Information We Collect From Third Parties

We may collect information that others provide about you when they use the C-A Platform or obtain information from other sources and combine that with information we collect through the C-A Platform. C-A does not control, supervise, or respond to how the third parties providing your information process your data, and any information request regarding the disclosure of your personal information to C-A should be directed to such third parties.

Third-Party Services

If you link, connect, or log in to your C-A account with a third-party service (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, Google), we may collect information from the third-party service, such as your registration and profile information. This information varies and is controlled by that service or as authorized by you via your privacy settings at that service.

Background Information

For certain Members in the United States, to the extent permitted by applicable laws, C-A may obtain reports from public records of criminal convictions or sex offender registrations. For Members outside of the United States, to the extent permitted by applicable laws, C-A may obtain the local version of background or registered sex offender checks. We may use your information, including your full name and date of birth, to obtain such reports. We will only collect this information where required by applicable laws or where necessary to ensure the adequate performance of our services for you.

Other Sources

To the extent permitted by applicable law, we may receive additional information about you, such as demographic data or fraud detection information, from third-party service providers and/or partners (such as Safely Stay) and combine it with information we have about you. For example, we may receive background check results or fraud warnings from service providers like identity verification services for our fraud prevention and risk assessment efforts. We may receive information about you and your activities on and off the C-A Platform, including your interactions with our partner ad networks. For example, if you book a restaurant reservation through C-A, the restaurant may send information to us that you submitted to them, like your dining preferences or dining activity. We may receive information about you and your activities on and off the C-A Platform through partnerships, or about your experiences and interactions from our partner ad networks.

3. Sharing & Disclosure


3.1. With Your Consent OR Were Authorized By Law

  • We may share your information at your direction or as described by us to you at the time of sharing, such as if you, as a Guest, have requested us to connect you with a third-party vendor or to purchase services from a third-party vendor on your behalf, in connection with your booking (e.g., an insurance provider or activities provider), or if you, as a Supplier, have agreed to let us market your Accommodation through, or refer you to, a third party’s platform. In these situations, you are authorizing C-A to disclose to these third-party vendors the information required to book them and to receive the relevant services from them. This could include special preferences or requests, and any additional guest information. These third-party vendors are not controlled by C-A and personal information shared with them is subject to their privacy policies and practices.
  • We may also share certain contact details about you, such as your name, email, and past reservations in C-A, with other companies and business partners of C-A, including our affiliate, Airbnb, who may then send you marketing communications about products or services that may interest you.


3.2. Sharing Between Suppliers And Guests

  • When you as a Guest submit a booking request, certain information about you may be shared with the Supplier to coordinate the booking, such as your name, contact details, and arrival date.
  • When you as a supplier have a confirmed booking, certain information about you may be shared with the Guest to coordinate the booking, such as your full name, phone number, and Accommodation address.
  • Sharing this information is necessary to provide Guests with our services, and we don’t share your billing and payout information with other members.


3.3. Reviews, Listings, And Other Public Information

  • The C-A Platform publishes information that is visible to the general public. For example:
  • Public Listing pages are publicly visible and include information such as the Accommodation’s approximate or exact location, Listing description, calendar availability, and any additional information the Supplier chooses to share.
  • After completing a booking, Guests may write reviews which may appear publicly on Listing pages (and other pages on which we may market Accommodations) under their first name, last initial, and general location.
  • If you submit content on our blog, in a public forum, or a social media post, or use a similar feature on the C-A Platform, that content is publicly visible.

The information you share publicly on the C-A Platform may be indexed through third-party search engines. If you change your settings or your public-facing content, these search engines may not update their databases. We do not control the practices of third-party search engines, and they may use caches containing your outdated information.


3.4. Service Providers

We use a variety of third-party service providers to help us provide services related to the C-A Platform and ensure we can adequately provide you with our services. For example, service providers may help us: (i) verify or authenticate your identification, (ii) check information against public databases, (iii) assist us with background checks, fraud prevention, and risk assessment, or (iv) provide customer service, advertising, or payments services. These providers have limited access to your information to perform these tasks on our behalf and are contractually obligated to use it consistent with this policy.


3.5. Additional Services By Suppliers

Suppliers may use third-party services available through the C-A Platform to assist with managing their Accommodation or providing additional services, such as cleaning services, insurance, or activities providers. Suppliers may use features on the C-A Platform to share information about the Guest (like the Guest’s check-in and check-out dates, name, phone number, and anonymized email address) with that third-party service provider to coordinate the stay, and manage the accommodation, or deliver other services.


3.6. Safety And Compliance With Law

C-A may disclose your information to courts, law enforcement or governmental authorities, or authorized third parties, if and to the extent we are required or permitted to do so by law or if such disclosure is reasonably necessary: (i) to comply with legal process and to respond to claims asserted against C-A, (ii) to respond to verified requests relating to a criminal investigation or alleged or suspected illegal activity or any other activity that may expose us, you, or any other of our users to legal liability, (iii) to enforce and administer our Terms Of Use or other agreements with Members, (iv) for fraud investigation and prevention, risk assessment, customer support, product development, and debugging purposes, or (v) to protect the rights, property or personal safety of C-A, its employees, its Members, or Members of the public. We will attempt to notify Members about these requests unless: (i) providing notice is prohibited by the legal process itself, by court order we receive, or by applicable law, or (ii) we believe that providing notice would be futile, ineffective, create a risk of injury or bodily harm to an individual or group, or create or increase a risk of fraud upon C-A’s property, its Members and the C-A Platform (collectively, “Risk Scenarios”). In instances where we comply with legal requests without notice for these reasons, we will attempt to notify that Member about the request after the fact if we determine in good faith that we are no longer legally prohibited from doing so and that no Risk Scenarios apply.


3.7. Corporate Affiliates

To help us provide the C-A Platform, we may share your information within our corporate family of companies (both financial and non-financial entities) that are related by common ownership or control.

Our affiliates include other C-AFRICA companies and Airbnb companies.

In this event, we will notify you before your personal information is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.


3.11. Aggregated Data

We may also share aggregated information (information about our users that we combine so that it no longer identifies or references an individual user) and other de-identified information for industry and market analysis, regulatory compliance, demographic profiling, marketing, advertising, and other business purposes.

We will not review, scan, or analyze your communications to send third-party marketing messages to you, and we will not sell reviews or analyses of these communications These activities are carried out based on C-A’s legitimate interest in ensuring compliance with applicable laws, preventing fraud, promoting safety, and improving and ensuring the adequate performance of our services.

These Third Party Partners will have their own rules about the collection, use, and disclosure of information. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of the other websites you visit.


6. Your Choices


6.1. Managing Your Information

You may access, update, and correct most of your basic personal information by logging into your C-A account and reviewing your settings and profile.

To cancel your C-A account, Contact Us.

If you cancel your account or request the erasure of your personal information, note that:

  • The information you have shared with others (such as Listing reviews) may continue to be publicly visible on the C-A Platform in association with your first name, even after your C-A account is canceled.
  • Some copies of your information (e.g. log records) may remain in our database but are disassociated from personal identifiers.

  • C-A may retain certain information to the extent necessary to comply with its legal obligations.
  • C-A may retain certain information as necessary for its legitimate business interests, such as fraud detection and prevention, enhancing user safety, and defending itself against legal claims.

6.3 Withdrawing Consent

In some jurisdictions, applicable law may entitle you to withdraw the consent you previously gave to C-A to process your information and to end your use of the C-A Platform by canceling your account as described in this section.

Exercising Your Rights

To exercise the rights described above, you must send us a request that

We may also allow certain business partners to place these technologies on the C-A Platform. These partners use these technologies to (1) help us analyze how you use the C-A Platform, such as by noting the third-party services from which you arrived, (2) market and advertise CA services to you on the C-A Platform and third-party websites, (3) help us detect or prevent fraud or conduct risk assessments, or (4) collect information about your activities on the C-A Platform, other sites, and/or the ads you have clicked on. For example, to help us better understand how people use the C-A Platform, we work with several analytics partners, including Google Analytics. To prevent Google Analytics from using your information for analytics, you may install the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser by clicking here.


13. Online Advertising

Third parties may also use such tracking technologies to serve ads that they believe are most likely to be of interest to you and measure the effectiveness of their ads both on the C-A Platform and on other websites and online services. Targeting and advertising cookies we use may include Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Criteo, OpenX, PubMatic, Stack Adapt, AppNexus, and other advertising networks and services we use from time to time. For more information about targeting and advertising cookies and how you can opt out, you can visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s opt-out page, the Digital Advertising Alliance’s opt-out page, or To opt out of Google Analytics for display advertising or customize Google display network ads, you can visit the Google Ads Settings page. To the extent, that advertising technology is integrated into the C-A Platform and you opt out of tailored advertising, you may still receive advertising content. In that case, the advertising content will just not be tailored to your interests. Also, we do not control any of these opt-out links and are not responsible for the availability or accuracy of these mechanisms.


14. Third-Party Social Plugins

The C-A Platform may use social plugins provided and operated by third parties, such as Facebook’s Like Button. As a result of this, you may send to the third party the information that you are viewing on a certain part of the C-A Platform. If you are not logged into your account with the third party, then the third party may not know your identity. If you are logged in to your account with the third party, then the third party may be able to link information or actions about your interactions with the C-A Platform to your account with them. Please refer to the third party’s privacy policies to learn more about its data practices.


15. Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”)

Another part of our priority is adding protection for children while using the internet. We encourage parents and guardians to observe, participate in, and/or monitor and guide their online activity.

C-AFRICA does not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. If you think that your child provided this kind of information on our website, we strongly encourage you to contact us immediately and we will use our best efforts to promptly remove such information from our records.
