Just as the Internet changes, our Privacy Statement may change from time to time. Changes will be posted here.
Information You Supply
When you use the web site, you may be asked questions about your vacation preferences and types of vacation activities that interest you. We maintain this information to send you e-mail offers and to let you know when vacations are available that fit your preferences. Member Information is not shared with third parties.
Our web servers automatically collect limited information about your computer’s connection to the Internet, including your IP address, when you visit our web site. Your IP address is a number that lets computers attached to the Internet know where to send you data – such as web pages you view. Your IP address does not identify you personally. We use this information to deliver our web pages to you upon request, to tailor our site to the interests of our users and to measure traffic within our sites. IP addresses gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.
This does not give us access to your computer or any personal information about you. It is possible to set your browser to inform you when a cookie is being placed. By accepting a cookie, keep in mind that your choice to decline e-mail offers remains unaffected.
Opting Out of Marketing Cookies
Our Internet marketing agencies participate in a self-regulation program through the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI). The NAI administers a marketing cookie opt out program on behalf of these companies. You can choose to opt out of the use of third-party marketing cookies from Vacation Rewards and other companies through the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI). However, if you choose to opt out, there are several things you should consider:
- When you opt out, NAI will place an opt-out cookie on your computer.
- The opt-out cookie prevents you from being tracked by participating advertisers.
- Clearing your computer's cookies will delete the opt-out cookie and require that you opt out again.
- The opt-out cookie is only effective on the computer and browser from which you've initiated an opt out.
- If you use multiple browsers on the same computer, you’ll need to opt out from each browser that you use.
As an alternative to the NAI Opt Out, you can also change the way your browser manages third-party cookies. (Check your browser's Help menu for directions on how to do this.)
We use SSL encryption - the industry standard - to protect sensitive information such as credit card numbers. All of your credit card information is kept on a secured server for maximum security. Your credit card and billing information is sent in an encrypted form and cannot be read over the Internet. Once we receive your credit card information, we store it on a server that is inaccessible from the Internet. All credit card transactions are handled by a third-party financial institution, which receives the credit card number and other personal identifying information only to verify the credit card numbers and process transactions. You are welcome to call in your credit card information and complete your purchase by phone if you feel more comfortable doing so.
