In order to use our Site and some of our Services, you may be required to register and provide us with certain Personal Information. We also collect Personal Information when you make use of the Services, such as booking a hotel room, or contact us for any other reason. “Personal Information” means information that can be directly associated with a specific person or entity such as a name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card number and expiration date, or information about activities directly linked to a person, such as that person’s location. Examples of the Personal Information that we collect from you include your name, location and e-mail address. You may register through your Facebook account and may choose to log in through the Facebook Connect Feature, Twitter or Google Plus. By doing so, you are asking those entities to send us certain information from your profile and authorize us to collect, store and use this information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. It is your voluntary decision whether to provide us with any such Personal Information, but if you refuse to provide such information we may not be able to register you or allow certain uses of the Site and/or Services.

You may provide information on behalf of another entity.  If you completed the registration or provide information on behalf of a certain entity, you represent to us that you were authorized by that entity to give us consent to use the submitted information.

How we Protect Information

We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

When you enter sensitive information such as credit card number on our order form, our merchant services providers encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).

We will delete any information provided to us by a user upon the receipt of a written request by such user. We cannot restore information that we have deleted.
