We respect your privacy. We have recently updated our Privacy Policy on May 24, 2018. We do not share, rent, sell, or otherwise use any personal information you have given us to any third party without your permission, except when required by law, subpoena or other legal process or in order to protect the safety of the public.

In general, we receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in other ways, such as when you fill out a form, participate in a contest or promotion, or reserve a suite online. This includes information that can identify you as a natural person (“Personal Information”), including, for example, your first and last names, business, home and postal addresses, e-mail addresses, telephone numbers, gender, travel preferences, and payment information such as credit card number, cardholder name and expiration date. We will not collect any of your Personal Information except when you specifically and knowingly provided your consent.

From time to time, we may also obtain both Personal Information and non-personal information about you from affiliated entities, business partners and other independent third-party sources. In addition, if you link your social media account to our social media account, or use certain social media features such as a hashtag that includes our trademarks or trade names, we may access information about you via the social media provider in accordance with the social media provider's policies. The information may include your name, email address, profile picture, gender, and other information that you authorize us to receive.

We are not responsible for the information collection, use, disclosure or security policies or practices of third parties, such as Facebook, Instagram, Apple, Google, or any other app developer, app provider, social media platform provider, wireless service provider or device manufacturer, with respect to any Personal Information you disclose to third parties through or in connection with our mobile app or social media pages.
