INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Online Vacation Center may request, collect, and safely store the following personal data you have provided to us only for the purposes of delivering our products and services to you:
Outside of Personal Data that you have specifically provided to OVC, OVC may, from time to time, collect additional data from your access to its websites or your use and interaction with its emails (the "Usage Data"). By using the websites and subscribing to the emails, you hereby acknowledge, agree, and consent to OVC'S processing of the following information, which could be used to directly or indirectly identify you:
Online Vacation Center logs IP addresses (a unique number assigned to every computer on the Internet) in order to improve security, analyze trends, and efficiently administer the Site to provide its customers with the best experience possible. We may track your movement within the Site, the pages from which you were referred, access times, and browser types. We only use this information in aggregate and do not link it to you personally unless you explicitly consent to our email subscription service (the"Subscription") and become a subscriber. To gauge the effectiveness of our Site, we do collect some generic information about our visitors. Our web servers automatically recognize a visitor's domain name, the web page from which a visitor enters our Site, which pages a visitor visits on our Site, and how much time a visitor spends on each page. We may use anonymous tracking technologies to collect, store, and sometimes track information for statistical purposes and to improve the products and services we provide. We aggregate this information and use it to evaluate and improve our Site. We store information that we collect through cookies, log files, clear gifs, and/or third party sources, for instance, to verify your address or update your information and to create a "profile" of your preferences. For our customers and subscribers, we tie your personally identifiable information that you voluntarily disclose to us to information in the profile, in order to provide tailored promotions and marketing offers and to improve the content of the Site for you.
Web beacons are single pixel gifs. We use web beacons on our Site and in our Subscription emails. When we send emails to subscribers, we may track information such as who opened the emails and who clicked the links. This allows us to measure the performance of our email campaigns and to improve our features for specific segments of subscribers. Web beacons allow us to collect information about when you open the email, your IP address, your browser or email client type, and other similar details.
Sweepstakes or Promotions
From time to time we may provide you the opportunity to participate in sweepstakes or other promotions on our Site, which might be sponsored or conducted by a third-party and if so, such sponsorship will be disclosed to you. If you participate, we will request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these sweepstakes is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. If you voluntarily disclose any personal information to participate, you are doing so with explicit consent to the contract governing such sweepstakes or promotions and the Terms and Conditions of this Site. We may share personal information with certain sponsors and ad partners that you have explicitly requested to receive information from. It will be clear at the point of collection who is collecting the personal information and whose privacy statement will apply. By providing information for these purposes, you are consenting to the privacy statement of the third party disclosed to you.
Tell-A-Friend & Forward-To-A-Friend
We may from time to time conduct a referral service to introduce people you know to our Site and services. If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about our Site, we will ask you for your friend's name and e-mail address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time e-mail inviting him or her to visit the Site and your friend may choose to opt-in to our Subscription or may ignore the email. If your friend ignores the email, they will not receive any more Subscription emails and their email address and name will be deleted from OVC's database. OVC anonymously stores this information for the purpose of tracking the success of our referral program.
USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
OVC'S Business Purposes
