When making a reservation, you will have to supply a set of personal information, such as your name, address, phone number, credit card information, e-mail address and any other information you may choose to provide or as may be required to fulfill the requested service. We also collect non-personally identifiable information, including your IP address, search preferences related to specific searches, location, and bids through your interactions with our Site. As a reservations intermediary, we will have to send your personal data to the providers of the services that assist in effectuating your reservation. Your credit card information will be saved with a 256-bit encryption process, will be stored and used for the processing of reservations.
We may share your information, including reservation information:
• In response to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal process; to establish or exercise our legal rights; to defend against legal claims; or as otherwise required by law. In such cases we reserve the right to raise any legal objection or right available to us.
• When we believe it is appropriate to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal or suspected illegal activities; to protect and defend the rights, property, or safety of our company or the Site, our customers, or our partners; and when our Terms of Service are not respected.
• In connection with a corporate transaction, such as a divestiture, merger, consolidation, or asset sale, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy. We may transfer, share, sell or disclose your personal information to third parties as part of any corporate reorganization process or corporate transaction, such as a merger, acquisition, and/or a sale of all, substantially all, or part of our assets, and/or a licensing agreement with third parties.
If you choose to subscribe to our newsletter, you will regularly receive information about our special offers. The newsletter is sent out through an external service and we may disclose your information to a provider in order to send you the newsletter.
We use analytical software which allows us to monitor the Site and gather information from data to improve our Site. This software captures and measures information such as the number of visitors and the number of times the Site was used, through a cookie system and other similar technologies.
We share your personal data with external service providers (e.g., hotels, airlines, car rental agencies), our third party partners and others to provide you services. When you use our Site to make a booking or to take advantage of any of our other products and services, we may share your personal information with the hotel, airfare service or other involved partners and third parties to provide you with travel services, or require that you transact directly with a third party partner. Additionally, we may partner with other companies to provide inventory as part of our booking services. A partner consists of a third party company with which we have contracted in order to provide you with our services featured on our publications or booking platform. Should we partner with a company to provide you a booking, we may share your personal information with that third party partner.
TRANSACTIONS ON WEBSITE
If you are making a purchase on the Site, we often work with third parties and trusted business partners to collect your credit card, billing address and other verifying information. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure and thus we cannot guarantee its absolute security. We employ reasonable technical safeguards to maintain data accuracy and security. We assume no liability for disclosure of personal information due to, among other things, errors in transmission or unauthorized third parties.
