Collection and Use of Information
You should be aware that when you voluntarily disclose personally identifiable information on the forums on Cottage Inn site and any other information you disclose could be collected and used by third parties. This could result in unsolicited messages from others.
Cottage Inn Management collects online information to respond to your requests, to make it easier and more rewarding for you to use Cottage Inn products and services and to assist us in providing Cottage Inn customers a broad range of personalized products and services. For example, we will perform statistical analyses of Cottage Inn visitors’ characteristics in order to measure interest in and use of Cottage Inn site.
We may occasionally send you e-mail offers or periodic mailings from us regarding new products and services or upcoming events. These offers may be based on information you provided us in Cottage Inn responses to Cottage Inn surveys and on your history with us as a guest.
We collect information in different ways.
We collect information you choose to provide us, such as your name, e-mail address, the pages you access and information such as survey information, postal address, telephone numbers and site registrations. Like many other commercial web sites, Cottage Inn web sites may collect information about how Cottage Inn site is used.
Instances where we may gather personally identifiable information include contest or sweepstakes registrations and suggestions you may give us. At any of these times, you will have the opportunity to “opt in” to receive promotional and/or other marketing about Cottage Inn products, services and offerings. During registration, if you indicate that you wish to receive e-mail from us, we will use your Inn e-mail address to contact you about merchandise or services in which you have indicated an interest and any such communication will include instructions on how to opt out of future communications. You can “opt-out” at any time for these promotional marketing offers by choosing to “unsubscribe”. Upon your Inn request, we will take all reasonable efforts to delete your personal information from Cottage Inn database, but that it may be impossible to delete your entry without some residual information because of backups and records of deletion. We will never knowingly send messages to customers who have asked us not to.
You will not personally be contacted or solicited by us or anyone else as a result of information you provide.
Information you provide us will not be shared with any other company, organization or entity other than Cottage Inn franchisees.
Cottage Inn data networks are secured and protected by industry standard firewall and password protection systems. We periodically review Cottage Inn security and privacy policies and restrict access to the information to authorized personnel. Particularly sensitive information, such as credit card numbers, are encrypted prior to transmission.
We may, if required by law, provide personally identifiable information to the appropriate governmental authorities. We may also release personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with law, or to protect Cottage Inn own rights and those of Cottage Inn users or others.
We are also concerned about protecting the safety and privacy of children. We do not specifically collect information about children and do not sell products for purchase by children. If you are under 18 you must have Cottage Inn legal guardian’s consent before giving out any personal information.
