HOW IS PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTED?
ADVERTISING AND ONLINE TRACKING
We allow third-party companies to serve ads and/or collect certain information when you visit our web sites. These companies may use information (e.g., click stream information, browser type, time and date, subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over) collected during your visits to this and other web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of interest to you. These companies may also tie identifiers associated with a particular browser or device to identifiers associated with other browsers or devices used by the same user or household (e.g., a device identifier associated with a user's computer may be tied to the device identifiers of that user's tablet and phone) in order to measure and target advertisements tailored to user interests across their devices and to send personalized marketing communications. These companies typically use a cookie or third party web beacon to collect this information. Our systems do not recognize "Do Not Track" signals, but several of these third party companies who utilize these cookies or beacons on our web sites enable you to opt out of this behavioral advertising. To learn more or opt out from these companies you can visit http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices and www.aboutads.info/choices/.
HOW DO WE STORE INFORMATION?
We regularly obtain and store information in both digital and physical form. In order to better facilitate the security for personal information, we endeavor to store personal information in a secure location, be it a database or filing cabinet. Furthermore, we take steps to limit and control access to this information. Primarily, the information stored on our customer database systems includes what is needed in order to facilitate the provision of our services and to improve the efficiency of your visit. Customer name, address, phone numbers are recorded and made available as needed when you complete a transaction. We do not store credit card numbers. It is important to note that there is always risk associated with disclosing any information and in particular with regard to method of disclosure used. For example, email communication can not be guaranteed as secure, so there is a risk inherent in the use of email. Please be aware of this when requesting information or sending forms to us by email (for example, from the contact us section of our website). We recommend that you do not include any confidential information (e.G., Credit card information) when using email. For your protection, our email responses to you will not include any confidential information. Finally, we cannot and do not warrant the operation of the reservation website and/or matters relating to its security as it is not our site nor does it, to the maximum extent permitted by law, warrant or guarantee privacy. To be prudent, please be sure to always close your browsers when you are done using the reservation site. Although the session will terminate after a short period of inactivity, it is best to close your browsers immediately upon completion as it can be easier for someone to attempt to get access to your profile and personal information while you are logged on.
WHY IS PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTED?
1. TO PROVIDE SUPERIOR CUSTOMER SERVICE: Personal information is collected to (i) assist us with making your purchase, by accommodating billing, and by knowing which services to provide in order to facilitate meeting your needs while you are visiting our website and (ii) allow us to contact you in relation to matters that may have arisen during your online visit with us. Furthermore, by keeping certain personal information on file, such as information regarding customer history and itemized spending, former customers of ours have the ability to confirm prior transactions and reconcile statements or invoices.
2. TO KEEP OUR CUSTOMERS INFORMED: We may also use personal information to advise you of promotions or to inform you of offers or other information that may be of interest to you. In order to do this, your information may be shared with a third party, including a customer relationship management company and/or a marketing and communications company. These companies are typically under contract with or obligation to us and understand that customer information should never be sold, rented, exchanged or in any way transferred without consent. If you would prefer not to receive marketing information directly from us, you may advise us directly or send an email to: [email protected]
3. FOR MARKETING RESEARCH: We occasionally combine information from a number of customers to better understand trends and expectations of our customers. Where this occurs, personal identifiers are typically removed so that the aggregate information cannot be linked to specific guests. This information is then used by us to study, understand and operate our business.
