Aggregate information collected for website analysis
Our web server automatically recognizes website visitors’ IP addresses. We collect only the IP addresses — not the e-mail addresses — of visitors to our website, and we collect aggregate information on what pages visitors access or view. None of this information identifies you personally. The information we collect is used for internal review and to help us improve our website
With service providers we hire
The Pestana Vacation Club contracts with other companies to provide certain services on our behalf, such as e-mail distribution, website programming and analysis, and so forth. We provide these companies with only the information they need to perform their services. These companies are restricted from using your personal information in any way other than to provide services for us, and they may not share or resell this data. We require our service providers to treat your personal information with the same high degree of confidentiality and security as we do.
For legal purposes
The Pestana Vacation Club may release personal information as required by law — for example, to comply with a court order. In very limited circumstances, we also may release personal information if we believe in good faith that disclosing such information is necessary to protect the safety of our members, our website visitors, this website, and/or the general public. The Pestana Vacation Club is committed to maintaining the security and confidentiality of the personal information you provide to us. When we transfer and receive financial information, we protect all transactions with Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, which encrypts the information you submit. We have a combination of physical, electronic, and procedural measures in place to help protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of your personal information. Access to your personal information is limited to those who need it to perform their duties. Our commitment to security notwithstanding, please be aware that there is always some risk when transmitting personal information over the internet, and no method of storing electronic data is completely secure. A risk remains that others could find a way to thwart our security measures. Therefore, despite the fact that we strive to protect your personal information, The Pestana Vacation Club cannot and does not warrant or guarantee the security or privacy of any information you send to us. You do so at your own risk.
The Pestana Vacation Club maintains a general-audience website. We do not knowingly collect any personal information from children under the age of 18 and are particularly concerned about children’s privacy online. If you are under 18, please do not send us any of your personal information, and you may use this website only with the involvement and consent of a parent or guardian.
Customers may prevent their information from being used for purposes other than those for which it was originally collected by contacting us.
Upon request, we provide customers with access to information that we maintain about them, and we grant the ability to correct inaccuracies in this information. Customers can request this information by contacting us.
