I. Website Browsing
Personally identifiable information will not be collected when you browse this website and/or request pages from our servers, except as described in this Policy. We will not know your name, your email address, or any other personally identifiable information just because you browse the website unless you access the website from a link in an email that we have provided. If you access the website from an email link from us, we will know who you are based on the information you previously provided to us.

When you request a page from our website, our servers log certain information, including the IP address number of the computer you are using, the time of the request, the URL of your request and other information that is provided in the “HTTP” header found at the top of your Internet browser. We collect this information to make our website function correctly and provide you the functionality that you see on this website.

III. Personal Information -- How We Use It
We will ask you to voluntarily supply us with personal information (such as your full name, email address, mailing address, telephone number or credit card number) to provide you with specific services you request. These may include making a reservation for you, signing you up for email alerts, replying to you if you submit information on the “contact us” page, and responding to your emails. For example, we will use your email address to send a confirmation and, if necessary, we may use other information to contact you in processing your reservation. We may also use your email address to notify you about special offers and promotions, but we will give you an opportunity to opt-out at any time.

In addition, if we sell all or part of our business or make a sale or transfer of assets or are otherwise involved in a merger or business transaction, we may transfer your personal information to another entity as part of that transaction as long as that entity agrees to comply with this privacy policy.
