For these purposes, we and our third-party advertising companies may place pixel tags (also called clear gifs) on some of the pages you visit on our website. We will then use the non-personally identifiable information that is collected using these pixel tags to serve you relevant advertisements when you are visiting other sites on the internet. These advertisements may be targeted to specific searches you conducted on our website during earlier browsing sessions.

Third party Internet sites available through advertising and other links on our site have separate privacy and data collection practices.

For example, the website servers and systems are configured with data encryption or scrambling technologies and industry standard firewalls, and when you enter personal information during the reservation process, your data is protected by Secure Socket Layer (SSL). Although we take reasonable steps to safeguard and prevent unauthorized access to your personal information, no methods can be entirely secure. We cannot be responsible for the acts of those who gain unauthorized access, and we make no warranty, express, implied or otherwise, that we will prevent such access and disclaim any such obligation.
