Privacy Policy

You can browse our Websites without telling us who you are or revealing your personally-identifying information. Like most websites, however, we collect usage information automatically from all visitors to our Websites. Usage Information may include your IP address or other unique device identifiers, web browser and operating system; the date and time of your visit; the pages from which you navigate to and from our Websites or the search terms that lead you to our Websites; and the pages on our Websites you visit and how long you spend on each one.

Information Collected by Third Parties
As you navigate our Websites, please be aware that third parties may gather information from and about you. For example, companies offering services or products through links to our Site may use “cookies” to collect and use information about you and may contain information that you submit. In these cases, those third parties will use such data following their privacy policies, which may differ substantially from our Policy.

How do we use your personal information?
We will not sell or rent your personal information to anyone. However, we may use information that you provide to us or that we collect automatically for various purposes, including:

  • To administer, operate, and improve our Websites and Services;
  • To respond to an email, inquiry, or request sent by you;
  • To process a transaction, such as a reservation;
  • To communicate with you and provide you with information you request or think may be of interest to you.
  • To prevent fraud and to ensure the safety and security of our Websites;
  • You may opt-out of such communications at any time by following the instructions in each communication;
  • To comply with applicable legal obligations.

Also, information about our users, including personal information, may be disclosed as part of any merger, acquisition, debt financing, sale of company assets, or similar transaction, as well as in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership, in which personal information could be transferred to third parties as one of our business assets.

We may share aggregated, non-personally identifiable information about our users for various purposes, including marketing and promotions. However, in these situations, we do not disclose any personal information.

We use “cookies” and similar technologies (such as web beacons and pixels) on our websites. A cookie is a small data file that is placed on your computer when you access our websites. We use cookies to improve your access to our websites (for example, by storing your username so you can log in more easily), and to allow you to share Website content with social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. Cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of visitors to our Websites so that we can provide more customized content. Cookies can also be used to collect general usage and aggregated statistical information. Most browsers can be set to detect cookies and give you an opportunity to reject them, but refusing cookies may, in some cases, inhibit or preclude your use of the Site or its features.

​Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics to collect information such as how often users visit our Websites, what pages they visit, and how long they stayed on our Site. We use this infor­mation to improve our Site. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you when you visit our Site, rather than your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable infor­mation. Google Analytics places a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user. The next time you visit our Site, Google is the only one who uses the cookie. The Google Analytics Terms of Use restrict Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to our Site. To opt-out of being tracked by Google Analytics, visit the Google Analytics opt-out page.

​Links to Other Websites
Our Websites may contain links to other websites that we do not operate or control. For example, to generate interest in our Site, our Site may offer you the opportunity to share information via social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. Please be aware that this Policy does not apply to a third-party website and will not apply to any information you disclose while using third-party services

​”Do Not Track” Signals
“Do Not Track” is a setting available in most web browsers that ask a web application to disable its tracking of an individual user. There is currently no consensus yet on how companies should respond to Do Not Track signals. At this time, we do not respond to Do Not Track signals. You can learn more about Do Not Track by visiting

How do we keep your information secure?
We have adopted physical and electronic safeguards to protect your personal information by preventing unauthorized access, maintaining data accuracy, and ensuring the correct use of information.  We use the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol, which encrypts any personal information you provide to us by scrambling it before transmission from your computer. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot warrant the security of any information you transmit to us.

How do I correct my information or “opt-out”?
We do not email market (SPAM) anyone who has not previously signed up for our Site newsletter. You may opt-out of our email list at any time by clicking on the opt-out URL on our emails. You may also correct your personal information or opt-out of future communications from us (i.e., mailings, calls, etc.) by sending a request to We will use our best efforts to remove your personal information from our systems within 30 days of your request.

Our Legal Basis for Processing
Generally, we rely on our legitimate interests to process your personal information. For example, we rely on this legal ground if we use your personal information to manage and administer our relationship with you; to deliver and improve our Websites and Services; to personalize your experience on our Websites; and, when necessary, to protect or defend our or another’s rights or property, or to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, safety or privacy issues. In addition, there may be situations where other grounds for processing may exist, such as when you consent to our processing your personal information to complete a transaction.
