We understand that booking online involves significant trust on your part. We value your trust, and make it a high priority to ensure the security and confidentiality of the personal information you provide to us. Please read the following policy to learn about our privacy practices.
We receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way (for example by linking your social network profiles to your user account at our website). This includes information, which can identify you ("personal information and interests") and billing information (such as credit card number, cardholder name, and expiration date). We may also request information about your vacation type and your hotel room preferences. You can choose not to provide information to us, but in general some information about you is required in order for you to register as a member; book travel; complete a traveller profile; participate in a survey, contest, or sweepstakes; ask us a question; or initiate other transactions on our site.
If you make a reservation for someone else through this website, we will request personal information and travel preferences about that individual. You should obtain the consent of other individuals prior to providing us with their personal information and travel preferences, as any access to view or change their information will be available only through your account.
We also may periodically obtain both personal and non-personal information about you from affiliated entities, business partners and other independent third-party sources and add it to our account information. Examples of information we may receive include: updated delivery and address information, purchase history, and demographic information.
We automatically collect some information about your computer when you visit this website. For example, we will collect your IP address, Web browser software (such as Firefox, Safari, or Internet Explorer), and referring website. We also may collect information about your online activity, such as trips viewed and bookings made. Our goals in collecting this automatic information are helping customize your user experience and inhibiting fraud. For more information, please see Cookies and other technologies.
We want to make it easy for you to take advantage of travel-related opportunities on our website. One way we do this is by sending you email messages that contain information about your travel-related interests if you consented to receiving email marketing communications. Where legally required, we will abide by existing publicly available opt-out lists when sending you marketing communications. For example, if you search for a hotel room in Dubai on our website and have not yet booked the room, we may send you an email message reminding you about it. Similarly, if you receive an email from us about Dubai and demonstrate an interest in Dubai hotels by affirmatively clicking on a link about Dubai hotels in the email, you may receive an email about Dubai hotels. We believe these email messages will provide you with useful information about travel-related special offers available through our site. Please note that you will have the opportunity to choose not to receive these email messages in any such email we send.
