Whistler eStays respects the privacy of our online visitors. As a general policy, we do not anonymously collect personal data from visitors to our web site, though we may use "cookie" technology to gather non-personal information from visitors. This is standard practice on the web. We use the information gathered by cookies to improve your visit to our site, among other things. We also may collect aggregate information about our visitors. For example, we may track the total number of web site visitors in a particular period.
In general, when you visit our websites and access information, you remain anonymous. Whistlerestays.com may collect personally identifiable information — that is, your name, address and email — when you voluntarily subscribe to a service offered by whistlerestays.com. Before we ask you for information, we will explain how this information will be used. When you provide such personally identifiable information, we give you the opportunity to elect not to receive materials from us. When you sign up for a Whistler eStays electronic newsletter or e-mail list, each message you receive includes instructions on how to unsubscribe from that list. Any personally identifiable information you provide is used solely by whistlerestays.com or other companies who are involved in the operation of this web site. Whistlerestays.com does not sell this information to third parties, though we may share aggregated non-personal information with advertisers on our site.
However, we will disclose personal information when required by law, in response to any demand by law enforcement or other appropriate government authorities, or if the personal information is pertinent in a legal proceeding or court action.
Whenever you provide sensitive information (for example, a credit card number to make a purchase), we take reasonable steps to protect it, such as encrypting your card number. We also take reasonable security measures to protect your personal information in storage. Credit card numbers are used only for payment processing and are not retained for marketing purposes. Many of our websites that collect information store and process that information in databases in the United States, Canada and other countries. We also take reasonable security measures to protect all information stored in these databases.
Note that we reserve the right to change this policy at any time, so you should check this page periodically for any changes. Also note that our websites may provide links to third-party sites. Since we do not control those websites, we encourage you to review the privacy policies of these third-party sites.
Whistlerestays.com uses pixels, or transparent GIF files, to help manage online advertising. These GIF files are provided by our ad management partner. These files enable us to recognize a unique cookie on your Web browser, which in turn enables us to learn which advertisements bring users to our website. The cookie was placed by us, or by another advertiser who works with our partner. With both cookies and Spotlight technology, the information that we collect and share is anonymous and not personally identifiable. It does not contain your name, address, telephone number, or email address.
Special Note to Parents
Whistlerestays.com does not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13. If any of our websites are developed for children under the age of 13, we encourage them to get their parents' permission before they give us any personal information. These websites also encourage children to use nicknames instead of their given names when and if personal information is collected. We recommend that parents consider using the technology available from online services and software manufactures that can prevent children from disclosing online personal information such as their name or address without parental permission.
