Vista Cañas Nature & Book Retreat cares about your privacy. For this reason, we collect and use personal data only as it might be needed for us to deliver to you our services, products and website. 

Our Privacy Policy is intended to describe to you how and what data we collect, and how and why we use your personal data. It also describes options we provide for you to access, update or otherwise take control of your personal data that we process.  

If at any time you have questions about our practices or any of your rights described below, you may reach us at  

We comply with the European/U.S. Privacy Shield Framework as set forth by the US Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of Personal Data from European Economic Area (“EEA”) member countries.

Welcome to the Vista Canas Nature & Book Retreat website! We are a proposed retreat located in between Cañas and Playa Venao within the province of Los Santos and the country of Panamá. At this time, the retreat is in the design phase, therefore we are not yet open for business.

We (“Vista Cañas,” “us,” “we” or “our”) will eventually be doing business under a Panamanian corporation and will be dedicated to helping others have an outstanding vacation or retreat in Panamá. Until such time the property is constructed, the website and email list will be run by Scribaceous, Inc., a California corporation, located in San Diego, California. 

Currently, Vista Cañas’ offerings are solely complimentary information on:

  1. the Vista Cañas Nature & Book  Retreat website
  2. the Vista Cañas Nature & Book Retreat Facebook page

Eventually, we will be providing visitor accommodations, hosting retreats, and providing tourist excursions.

If you are resident in the EEA or Switzerland, Scribaceous, Inc. is the responsible party with respect to Personal Data collected at this time.

If you have any questions or concerns at any time, please do not hesitate to contact us at the address above or by contacting us at

This Privacy Policy sets forth our policy with respect to information that can be associated with or which relates to a person and/or could be used to identify a person (“Personal Data”) that is collected from users who access our website.

We take the privacy of your Personal Data seriously. Because of that, we have created this Privacy Policy. Please read this Privacy Policy as it includes important information regarding your Personal Data and other information.

Note that “Non-Personal Data,” as used in this Privacy Policy, is any information that does not relate to a person and/or cannot be used to identify a person. When you interact with the Services, we may collect Non-Personal Data. The limitations and requirements in this Privacy Policy on our collection, use, disclosure, transfer and storage/retention of Personal Data do not apply to Non-Personal Data.

We collect information so that we can provide the best possible experience when you utilize our website. Much of what you likely consider personal data is collected directly from you when you:

(1) Complete a contact form; or

(2) Sign up for our email list.   

The Personal Data we may collect includes, without limitation:

  • Your name
  • Your address
  • Your phone number
  • Your email address
  • Any other information that enables Users to be personally identified

We may also collect additional information when you visit our website in order to ensure necessary and/or optimal service. Methods of collection may not be as obvious to you, so we wanted to highlight and explain below a bit more about what these might be (as they vary from time to time) and how they work:

Cookies and similar technologies on our websites and our mobile applications allow us to track your browsing behavior, links clicked, items purchased, your device type and to collect various data, including analytics, about how you use and interact with our website. This allows us to eventually provide you with more relevant product offerings, a better experience on our website, and to collect, analyze and improve the performance of our website. We may also collect your location (IP address) so that we can personalize your experience.

Website usage data is automatically collected when you use and interact with our site and may include metadata, log files, cookie/device IDs and location information. This information includes specific data about your interactions with the features, content and links (including those of third-parties, such as social media plugins) contained on our site, Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type and settings, the date and time the website was used, information about browser configuration and plugins, language preferences and cookie data, information about devices accessing the website, including type of device, what operating system is used, device settings, application IDs, unique device identifiers and error data, and some of this data collected might be capable of and be used to approximate your location. 

If you provide us personal information about others, or if others give us your information, we will only use that information for the specific reason for which it was provided to us.

We strongly believe in both minimizing the data we collect and limiting its use and purpose to only that (1) for which we have been given permission, (2) as necessary to deliver a positive experience on our website, or (3) as we might be required or permitted for legal compliance or other lawful purposes.

We will almost certainly contact you directly if you contact us through the contact form on our website or r
