What we collect and how we use it:
We only collect personally identifiable information on a voluntary basis. We do not require that you provide this information to gain access to our sites, and we do not require you to disclose more information than is reasonably needed to participate in an activity on our sites. We collect personally identifiable information primarily to e-mail updates and news, for entry into promotions and to notify subsequent winners, to send out brochures, etc. via regular mail to subscribers, and to respond to your questions or suggestions. We do not sell any information we gather at our websites to anyone outside of Westgate Resorts, and its affiliates. We do not transfer or disclose any information we gather at our websites to anyone outside of Westgate Resorts, and its affiliates, without your prior consent, except (1) in cases where we believe in good faith that we have a legal obligation to disclose such information, and (2) to certain suppliers that assist Westgate Resorts, and its affiliates, in maintaining and managing the activities on its websites. Please be assured that these suppliers are legally obligated to maintain the confidentiality of this information and do not acquire any rights to use your information for their own benefit. We may share non-identifiable aggregate information about our users (for example, the % of male and female visitors to our sites) with advertisers, business partners, sponsors and other third parties in an effort to customize or enhance the content and advertising on our sites for our users.
Like many companies, we may use a technology called “cookies” to enhance your experience on our sites. The cookies Westgate Resorts uses do not contain any personally identifiable information and cannot profile your system or collect information from your hard drive. You are not identified by name or e-mail address, just by a unique string of numbers that we assign the first time you come to our site.
We employ appropriate security measures to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. For our Westgate Resorts family of sites, we employ Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input, as an additional security measure. However, as no online data transmission can be guaranteed to be totally secure, we (like all websites) cannot warrant or guarantee 100% security of any information you transmit to us at our websites.
Neither Westgate Resorts, nor any of its affiliates, shall have any responsibility of any nature whatsoever for other websites linked to this website, or any information contained thereon, none of which has been verified or endorsed by either Westgate Resorts or any of its affiliates.
