This Policy is part of the Terms and Conditions of Out Of Office Travel LLC. By using our Sites or services, you are expressly agreeing to our Terms and Conditions, including the terms of this Policy.
When we ask for your personal information, we’ll let you know how you can find out about our privacy practices. If we’re asking you for information online, such as on one of our Web sites, we’ll provide a link to our Privacy Promise. If we’re asking you to complete a paper form, we’ll include a privacy notice with additional points of contact for your questions. If you’re making a reservation by phone, our operators will be able to answer your privacy questions. Our travel agents know about our commitments to your privacy. They will be able to answer your questions and address your concerns. If you have any questions or concerns about our privacy practices, you may contact us [email protected].
As used in this Policy, the term “personal information” means information that identifies you personally, either alone or in combination with other information available to us.
We believe that in order to make your experience pleasing and comfortable, we must strive to anticipate your needs. There are several ways we collect your personal information when you visit our Sites or use our services:
* Information You Provide. If you’re making a reservation on one of our Web sites, we’ll ask for your name, address, e-mail address, phone number and credit-card number, which we need to secure your reservation. We’ll save that number to facilitate future reservations. If you choose to create an online profile your credit card information may be shared with a travel agent for purchases requested on your behalf. The sharing of this information to travel agencies is only used for requested services and not for any other purpose. If you provide us comments through the “Email Us” features on our Web sites, we’ll provide a way for you to include your contact information, but you can also choose to provide anonymous comments. If you establish a Web site account with us, we’ll ask for your basic contact information to facilitate future online reservations.
To access your personal information for the purpose of updating it or correcting inaccuracies, contact your travel counselor.
If you have additional questions regarding your personal information, please contact us. We will respond promptly within the time limits established by applicable law. For your protection, we may ask you for additional information to verify your identity. In most cases, we will provide the access you request and correct or delete any inaccurate information you discover. In some cases, however, we may limit or deny your request if the law permits or requires us to do so.
You may update or correct key information relating to your account at any time by visiting your online profile or contacting us. In addition, from time to time, we may invite you to review and update key information relating to your account. We may also try to ensure that our customer addresses remain current by checking them against national change-of-address lists that postal services make available.
We take appropriate security measures to protect your personal information from unauthorized alteration. If you become aware that any of the personal information in our records is inaccurate or has been altered, please contact us.
We use your personal information to make your travel reservations; to provide your requested travel-related services; to process your payment; to maintain your online account; to communicate with you regarding your account and future travel with us; to customize the content and layout of this Site to match your needs, interests, and preferences; and to learn more about the your needs and wishes to improve this Site and other aspects of our services.
* You may change your privacy preferences at any time by contacting your travel counselor.
After you change your preferences, you may continue, for a time, to receive promotional messages in accordance with your former preferences. This may happen because we may have shared your personal information with a third party in connection with a specific campaign before you changed your privacy preferences. If you receive an unwanted e-mail message, you should use the “opt-out” link contained in that message to communicate directly with the sender.
Depending on your privacy preferences, we may share your personal information in the ways described below:
Our Site does not use spyware. The term “spyware” refers to a software program that, when installed on your computer, changes settings, displays advertising, or tracks your Internet behavior and reports information back to a central database. Spyware is usually installed on your computer without your knowledge and can be very difficult to remove.
We keep your personal information for as long as we need it for the purposes for which it was collected, or to which you have consented, or as permitted by applicable law.
Out Of Office Travel LLC, Tzell Travel Group, and Travel Leaders Group are all U.S. corporations. This Site may be hosted on Web servers located in the United States or other countries. Our data and call centers are located in the United States, although we may at times use supplemental facilities located outside of these countries. We share the personal information we collect with third-party service providers, our Partners, and others around the world as described in this Policy.
When we transfer your personal information to another country, we’ll take appropriate measures to protect your privacy and personal information. In addition, no matter where we transfer your personal information, it will remain subject to the terms of this Policy and your privacy preferences.
You should know that different countries have different data-protection laws, some of which provide more protection than others. By using this Site and participating in this Program, you are consenting to the transfer of your personal information to any country in the world, but only in accordance with the terms of this Policy.
We maintain appropriate physical, technological, and organizational safeguards to protect your personal information against loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, and destruction. For example, our data networks are protected by firewalls and intrusion-detection sensors. Only those who have a “need-to-know” are authorized to access member accounts, and only after they’ve been trained on our security procedures.
Although we use reasonable measures to help protect your personal information and comply with applicable data security laws, it’s important that you understand that no Web site or database is completely secure, or “hacker proof.” You can protect yourself and help us prevent computer crime by carefully guarding your password. If you believe the security of your account has been breached, contact us.
We communicate our privacy promises to our employees and train employees handling member information on their roles and responsibilities in protecting your privacy. We regularly assess the privacy and security practices of our Web sites, databases, and other member-information systems to identify ways we can improve our data practices. This privacy statement covers the Web site www.outofoffice.travel.
We reserve the right, at our discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove portions of this Policy at any time. The level of notice we’ll provide when we change this Policy will depend on the nature of the change. In any event, changes to this Policy may affect our use of personal information that you provided us prior to the effective date of the changes.
If you have questions or concerns regarding this statement, please contact us at [email protected].
