If you are concerned about your child’s use of the Site, you may use web-filtering technology to supervise or limit access to the Site.
Use of Information. In general, we will use the information we collect about you only for the purpose it was collected, for compatible purposes, as permitted or required by law, as necessary to carry out our contractual duties and obligations, and as otherwise provided in this Policy. For example, we may use your personal information to:
- Provide you with the products and/or services you have purchased or requested. This might include establishing an on-line profile, making a reservation, or make improvements in the design and administration of the Site.
- Market our products or services that we think may be of interest to you. For example, we may use your personal information to send you newsletters and promotions using any communications preferences you have expressed. We use your information to provide in-stay messaging, account alerts, and reservation confirmations; to send you marketing messages; and to conduct surveys, sweepstakes, prize draws, and other contests. We may provide these communications via email, postal mail, online advertising, social media, telephone, text message (including SMS and MMS), push notifications, in-app messaging, and other means. With your consent, we also use user-generated content (such as photos) from social media services to deliver display advertising or on our Site and apps. We may also partner with third parties to learn whether a visitor to our site has a cash-back offer associated with their payment card and to deliver the visitor advertising and information that explains how to take advantage of that offer.
- Ensure your information is accurate and to personalize our products and services. For example, we may aggregate your personal information with data from third-party sources for purposes of keeping information up to date and analytics. We also rely on information from third parties in order to provide better, more personalized service. If you connect your social media services or other accounts to our services, we may use this information to make your experiences with us more personal and social, or share and use it as described elsewhere in this Policy
Disclosure of Information. In general, we will not disclose your personal information except with your consent and as described in this Policy. We may disclosure your personal information for the same reasons that we may use it as described in this Policy, which includes disclosing it to our affiliates and non-affiliated entities, as we deem necessary to carry out those purposes. For example, and without limitation, the Hotel may need to use or disclose this information with its third party vendors to manage the Site; process payments and requests for products and services; provide you with products, services, or offers; coordinate your participation in our loyalty reward or similar programs; engage in marketing activities, such as sharing personal information with our partners to deliver advertisements to our shared customers; enhance our services by, among other methods, obtaining assistance with providing more personalized services to you through analytics and other technologies; and protecting the Hotel’s interests and legal rights, such as through responding to subpoenas and defending litigation. We endeavor to choose affiliates and non-affiliates with similar standards to ours regarding the protection of personal information.
In no case will the Hotel sell or license personal information to third parties, except as required or permitted by law. For example, we may sell, assign or share personal information in connection with certain business transactions, such as the acquisition of all or substantially all of the Hotel’s assets. In such cases, we will take appropriate steps under the circumstances and to the extent possible to ensure that the recipient agrees to provide privacy protections substantially similar to those established by this Policy.
Do Not Track. “Do Not Track” is a privacy preference that you can set in your Internet search browser that sends a signal to a website that you do not want the website operator to track certain browsing information about you. However, because our Site is not configured to detect Do Not Track signals from a user’s computer, we are unable to respond to Do Not Track requests.
Modifying Your Personal Information. If you would like to update your personal information on the Site, you may email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, if you wish to unsubscribe from any of our newsletters or other communications for which you have registered, you may e-mail us at email@example.com.
Safeguarding of Information. No system for safeguarding personal or other information is 100% secure. However, we take a number of steps to safeguard the security of personal information obtained through the Site. For example, we use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) data encryption when data is transmitted over the Internet to our Site. We have installed layered firewalls and other security technologies to help prevent unauthorized access to our systems. Our data centers are maintained in a secure environment with appropriate security measures. Our employees are trained to understand the importance of confidentiality and are required to adhere to our privacy policies and procedures. Employees who violate these policies and procedures are subject to disciplinary action. We employ numerous practices to protect against the disclosure of information for purposes unrelated to the performance of our business functions or to individuals other than those who must use it in the course of their work activities. These practices include the use of password protection of computer files, e-mail and voice-mail, video surveillance, and other physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards.
