2. How your information is used for internal purposes and secured
Information regarding your visit to ResorTime.com is gathered automatically and stored in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
This information is solely for internal use at ResorTime.com and does not identify individual users. This data allows us to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We do not link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information. IP addresses are tied to personally identifiable information to send emails to the user that they have opted to receive.
We employ [or our third party advertising partner employs] a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers’ personally identifiable information.
We use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. If you would like to opt-out of these emails, please see “Choice and Opt-out.”
When you are ready to book your vacation and have been redirected to ResorTime.com, we use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software to secure the transmission of your credit card information. This software encrypts all information you input and keeps it in a highly secure environment, protected from access by unauthorized parties. It is important for you to protect yourself from unauthorized use of your password by logging off when finished using ResorTime.com.
To ensure your privacy, ResorTime.com follows generally accepted industry standards to protect information submitted to us, both in transmission and in the storage of information. However, no transmissions or storage of electronic information is 100% secure. We will continually strive to protect you and your information, but cannot guarantee its absolute security.
If you have any questions about security on our Web site, you can send email us at JFarr@ResorTime.com.
