PATTON HOSPITALITY MANAGEMENT, ITS AFFILIATES, AND/OR ITS LICENSORS (“PHM” or “we”) values you as a customer and takes your online personal privacy seriously. We will inform you of our online policies for collecting, using, securing and sharing non-public personal information (“customer information”) the first time we do online business and every time that you visit a PHM website.
OUR PRIVACY PRINCIPLES
- We do not sell customer information.
- We do not provide customer information to persons or organizations who are conducting business on our behalf for their own marketing purposes.
- We contractually require any person or organization providing products or services to our customers on our behalf to protect the confidentiality of PHM customer information.
- We afford prospective and former customers the same protections as existing customers with respect to the use of personal information.
INFORMATION WE MAY COLLECT
We collect and use information we believe is necessary to administer our business and to provide you with customer service. We may collect and maintain several types of customer information needed for these purposes.
TYPES OF INFORMATION WE MAY COLLECT AND HOW WE GATHER IT
- From you (user account data, purchase history, and forms you submit), such as your name, address, email address, telephone numbers.
- From your transactions with us or with others, such as your travel history.
HOW WE USE INFORMATION ABOUT YOU
We use customer information to fulfill your requests for travel and resort products and services.
Sometimes we send offers to selected groups of PHM customers on behalf of other businesses. When we do this, we do not give that business your name and address.
EMAILS ABOUT SPECIAL OFFERS AND PROMOTIONS AND OPT-OUT
It is our intention to only send email communications that would be useful to you and that you want to receive. Some emails, such as those sent by the MyPlaces Portal after an account creation, are a necessary part of creating accounts, and these have no opt-out option.
All other emails, such as deal alerts, newsletters, and other promotional notices allow you to Opt-Out, as required by law. Each time you receive a promotional email, you will be provided the choice to “opt-out” of future emails by following the instructions provided in the email.
We may share customer information as permitted by law. We may share some or all of the information we collect with our affiliated companies and to our service providers, such as third party marketers and other types of service providers we may use to enhance our service to you; to develop new products and services of value to you; and to offer you other PHM products that we believe may be of interest to you. Our affiliated companies are those companies related to us by common control or ownership.
HOW WE PROTECT THE SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
In our efforts to protect your personal data, we use generally accepted standards for safeguards including administrative, technical and physical measures. Additional safeguards are in place for sensitive personal data. These safeguards are continually updated and maintained by qualified information security professionals.
One of the security techniques we use for online transactions is a technology called Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). If your browser is capable of SSL (and most are), your personal information will be automatically encrypted, or encoded, before it is sent over the Internet. More about SSL Technology. When you enter a secure portion of VacationCondos.com (the “Website”) (which is any page containing any of your personal information), an image of a closed lock or a solid key should appear in your browser window.
