INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE
Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide and improve our Site, services, features and content, to administer your whistlerwired.com Membership (together, the “Service”) and to enable users to enjoy and easily navigate the Site.
PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
When you choose to book an accommodation or when you wish to contact a Whistler Wired Member, we will ask you for personally identifiable information. This refers to information about you that can be used to contact or identify you (“Identity Information”). Identity Information includes, but is not limited to, your name, phone number, email address and home postal address, but does not include your credit card number or billing information. In order to process some of your transactions through the Site, we may also ask for your credit card number and billing information (“Billing Information”) (Identity Information and Billing Information together, “Personal Information”). However, if the address of a listing you post matches that of your credit card billing address, that address would be considered Identity Information. We use your Personal Information mainly to provide the Service and administer your inquiries but we also use it as specified below including to send you information you may find of interest. We also collect the other information that you provide as part of registration and the administration and personalization of your profile. We use your Personal Information (in some cases, in conjunction with your Non-Identifying Information) mainly to provide the Service, complete your transactions, and administer your inquiries. Certain Non-Identifying Information would be considered a part of your Personal Information if it were combined with other identifiers (for example, combining your postal or zip code with your street address) in a way that enables you to be identified. But the same pieces of information are considered Non-Identifying Information when they are taken alone or combined only with other non-identifying information (for example, your demographic information). We also use your Personal Information to contact you with marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive such communications from us, please contact us at email@example.com. Please note that we may also use your Personal Information to contact you with information related to your use of the Service; you may not opt out of these notifications.
When you visit the Site our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website (“Log Data”). This Log Data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type or the webpage you were visiting before you came to our Site, pages of our Site that you visit, the time spent on those pages, information you search for on our Site, access times and dates, and other statistics. We use this information to monitor and analyze use of the Site and the Service and for the Site’s technical administration, to increase our Site’s functionality and user-friendliness, and to better tailor it to our visitors’ needs. We also use this information to verify that visitors to the Site meet the criteria required to process their requests. We do not treat Log Data as Personal Information or use it in association with other Personal Information, though we may aggregate, analyze and evaluate such information for the same purposes as stated above regarding other Non-Identifying Information.
Identity theft and the practice currently known as “phishing” are of great concern to InvitedHome.com. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is a top priority. We do not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication.
INFORMATION SHARING AND DISCLOSURE OVERVIEW
In no event is a Traveler’s Billing Information shared. Whistler Wired uses a third party processor for all payment card transactions and does not capture or store any payment card information.
WHISTLER WIRED LISTINGS
If an Owner has a lodging space to list, whistlerwired.com may publish that listing anywhere on the Site and may enable third parties including but not limited to HomeAway, AirBnB, Expedia, and FlipKey to publish your listing on their site through the use of secure APIs. We may also display the geographical location of your listing in the form of a map so that potential Travelers can see the general area and neighborhood of your listing, but your actual street address will not be disclosed until a guest enters into a confirmed transaction. If a Guest enters into a confirmed transaction then the street address of your listing will be provided to the Guest.
AGGREGATE INFORMATION AND NON-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
We may share aggregated information that does not include Personal Information and we may otherwise disclose Non-Identifying Information and Log Data with third parties for industry analysis, demographic profiling and other purposes. Any aggregated information shared in these contexts will not contain your Personal Information.
COMPLIANCE WITH LAWS AND LAW ENFORCEMENT
Whistler Wired cooperates with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We will disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal process (including but not limited to subpoenas), to protect the property and rights of InvitedHome.com or a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop activity we may consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, any illegal, unethical or legally actionable activity.
CHANGING OR DELETING YOUR INFORMATION
All Guests may review, update, correct or delete the Personal Information in their registration profile by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org . If you would like us to delete your record in our system, please contact us and we will attempt to accommodate your request if we do not have any legal obligation to retain the record. See below for privacy contact information.
Whistler Wired is very concerned with safeguarding your information. We employ administrative, physical and electronic measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access. We will make any legally required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored “personal data” (as defined in applicable state statutes on security breach notification) to you via email or conspicuous posting on this Site in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, insofar as consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.
