PRIVACY POLICY

At Shelborne South Beach, we are committed to protecting the privacy of our customers and visitors. We know you care about what happens to your personal information on the Internet, so we think it is important for you to understand our privacy practices with respect to that personal information when you visit our web site (the “Site”) and use our services. We have created this privacy statement to explain what kind of information we collect from our customers, what we do with that information, and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.

This privacy policy may change from time to time, so please check back periodically.

 

1. What kind of information does Shelborne South Beach collect from you?

We offer on our web site various services to provide you with travel content, information, programs, promotions and packages (collectively referred to as the “Service”). ln order to provide you this Service as requested by you and to personalize this Service, we need to collect certain information about you. There are two types of information that we collect.

a. Your Contact Information

When you register for our Service, we ask you for information that personally identifies you, such as your legal name or business name, address, telephone number(s), email address, subscriber name or screen name, password used to access the Service, URL of your web site (if applicable), demographics, method of payment, and, if applicable, credit card number and billing address. We may also ask you for additional personal information at various times such as when we run a promotion, hold a contest or conduct surveys. We may later request additional personal information from you in order to establish and maintain your account. We do not knowingly allow anyone under the age of 18 to register with our Site or for our Service or to access those features that require registration.

b. Your IP Address

When you visit our Site or register for our Service, our web servers automatically collect limited information about your computer’s connection to the Internet, including your IP address (which is a number that lets our server know the “location” of your computer on the Internet). We use your IP address to (i) deliver our web pages to you upon request; (ii) tailor our Site and Service to your and other users’ interests; (iii) help diagnose problems with our server; (iv) administer our Site in order to constantly improve the quality of our Service; (v) measure traffic within our Site; and (vi) prevent fraudulent use of the Service by others. We may also track and analyze non-identifying and aggregate usage and volume statistical information from you and other users, and provide such information to third parties.

 

2. How does Shelborne South Beach use your information?

The information we collect helps us to verify your identity, establish an account for you, offer you more personalized features, deliver the Service to you, and improve our Service and Site. If you give us your permission, we use your contact information from the registration form to send you information about us and about promotions and events offered by us or third parties who help us to bring the Service to you (“Alliance Partners”). You may select to opt-out of future unsolicited mailings by following the opt-out provision below.

We also research your and other users’ demographics and interests based on the information provided upon registration, in our server log files, or from surveys. We use personal demographic and profile data to tailor your experience in our Service and on our Site, create personalized content and promotions, and show you content that might interest you or that you preferred.

 

3. Does Shelborne South Beach share your information with other companies?

We never sell, trade, rent, or share any of your personally identifiable information with third parties outside of Shelborne South Beach without your consent. However, we will pass on personal information about you only under the following circumstances:
We may pass on some of your personal contact information to our Alliance Partners, third party service providers and content suppliers, if we determine that such Alliance Partners, third party service providers and content suppliers need the information in order to provide you with the Service. They may also use your personal information for billing and market analysis purposes. Our Alliance Partners and content suppliers may not sell or share any of the personal information they receive from us, nor may they use it except to provide the Service (unless you specifically give them permission to do otherwise). Our Alliance Partners and content suppliers may have their own privacy policies which govern how they deal with any information you give to them directly.
Any credit card or financial information that you submit to us will be verified with certain third parties. The credit card or financial information is encrypted through the entire verification process.

We will provide your personal information when it is required to do so by a court, civil service process or regulatory or law enforcement agency. In addition, you authorize us to disclose any information about you to law enforcement or other governmental officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe is necessary or appropriate.

By registering for an account to use our Service, you grant Shelborne South Beach your consent to provide your personal information as described above and to the extent necessary to deliver the Service to you.

 

4. Does Shelborne South Beach use Cookies?

“Cookies” are small pieces of information that we store on your computer’s hard drive while you visit or browse our web site. Like many sites on the Internet, we use cookies to identify you when you use our Service, to enable you to easily navigate our web site, and to personalize your experience when using our Service. We do not and cannot use cookies to retrieve personal information from your computer.

In order to use the Service, your web browser must be set to accept cookies. Most Web browsers are automatically set to accept cookies.

Some of our Alliance Partners and other third parties (such as advertisers) may use cookies on our web site. However, we have no access to or control over these cookies.

 

5. What about the privacy policies of sites linking to our Site or to which Shelborne South Beach links?

Although we take careful security measures to protect your personal information, we cannot control or be responsible for third party sites that are linked to or from our web site. Once you leave our server, use of any information you provide is governed by the privacy policy of the operator of the site you are visiting. That policy may be different from ours. Shelborne South Beach is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any site other than the Shelborne South Beach sites such as: AmericanVacationLiving.com, AmericanGolfTours.com, and Select.Cruise.com. We are not responsible for the content, or endorse the subject matter, of any advertisements (including without limitation rotating banners) on our Site, our Alliance Partners’ sites, or the web sites of any other third parties. The existence of a link between the Shelborne South Beach Site and other third party sites does not imply an endorsement of those other sites.
