As used in this Policy, the term “personal information” means information that identifies you personally, either alone or in combination with other information available to us. Personal information includes: your name, phone number, email address. Personal Information can be provided in various ways: (1) information you provide to us via web contact forms, email, phone calls, text messages, private messaging, or any other form of communication such as opting in to one of our email lists; (2) from other companies which you have given permission for them to share your information.

If you have additional questions regarding your personal information, please contact us. We will respond promptly within the time limits established by applicable law. For your protection, we may ask you for additional information to verify your identity. In most cases, we will correct or delete any inaccurate information you discover. In some cases, however, we may limit or deny your request if the law permits or requires us to do so.
Use of Personal Information
We use your personal information to customize the content and layout of our Sites to match your needs, interests, and preferences; and to learn more about your needs and wishes to improve our Sites and other aspects of our services.
If you chose to receive email publications such as newsletters, special offers and updates from us, we will send you that information. We present an option to not receive these publications by supplying an unsubscribe link at the bottom of each publication we email to you.
We may share your personal information with companies and organizations that perform services on our behalf such as boking engines to obtain and maintain your travel related reservations. We use a third party to deliver our emails to you. Our third-party service providers are only authorized to use your personal information to perform services on our behalf and are required to protect the confidentiality of your personal information. We do not share, sell, rent or trade personal information with third parties for their promotional purposes.
We may provide personal information to a third party when we believe it is necessary to prevent or investigate a possible crime, such as fraud or identity theft; to comply with a court order or subpoena; to comply with a legal requirement; to protect your vital interests; or in connection with a sale, purchase, merger, reorganization, financing, liquidation, dissolution, or similar event. When we disclose information under these or similar circumstances, we’ll take appropriate steps to limit use and protect the confidentiality of your personal information.

If you win the sweepstakes, we may provide your registration information to a sweepstakes partner company for providing you your prize.
Protection of Personal Information
We maintain appropriate physical, technological, and organizational safeguards to protect your personal information against loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Our data networks are protected by firewalls and intrusion-detection sensors. Only those who have a “need-to-know” are authorized to access member accounts, and only after they’ve been trained on our security procedures.
We use reasonable measures to help protect your personal information and comply with applicable data security laws, but no Web site or database is completely secure, or “hacker proof.” Protect yourself and help us prevent computer crime by carefully guarding your password. Our Sites do not use Spyware. If you believe the security of your account has been breached, contact us.
