This Privacy Policy applies to this website and all of the products, services and websites of the properties owned and operated by us and our subsidiaries in the United States, unless otherwise indicated. Where additional detailed information is needed to explain our privacy practices, we post supplementary privacy notices to describe how personal information is processed.

We value your trust and respect your confidentiality. As a general practice we do not provide any online information, or any information gathered through forms, applications or other means to outside third parties, except as otherwise designated in this policy. We do not sell or rent any information gathered online, or in individual property players’ clubs, to any outside organization.

This Privacy Policy will tell you what information we collect about you, when we may disclose such information to third parties, and about your use of the websites and services. We urge you to read this Privacy Policy carefully.

Collection of Personal Information

We do not collect personally identifiable information about visitors except when visitors specifically provide such information on a voluntary basis. Such personally identifiable information may be gathered in registrations, applications, information requests, reservations, rsvps, online purchases, online surveys, and in some instances in the process of utilizing offers from our third party strategic partners and alliances.

We may use personally identifiable information for the following general purposes: contacting an account holder regarding account status, changes to the account agreement, special discounts, promotions, products offered and other matters relevant to the service and/or the information collected. Additionally, we may share your information, whether individually or in the aggregate, with our subsidiaries and affiliates, and in certain cases with selected outside third party partners and alliances for marketing or promotional purposes or to improve the products or services offered by us and our subsidiaries and affiliates.

We value opinions and comments from our visitors and we may conduct online surveys or issue invitations for such. We also offer an online Guest Comment form. These surveys are entirely optional for all website visitors. Usually the information from such surveys is aggregated and used for improving our products, services and operations and those of our subsidiaries and affiliates. In other cases we will use the identifying information as a vehicle for responding to an individual question or comment.

Collection of Aggregated Information

Survey participants are anonymous unless otherwise stated in the survey. We reserve the right to perform statistical analyses of visitors’ behavior and characteristics in order to measure interest in and use of the various areas of the website. We may provide aggregated data from these sources to third parties for purposes of research and evaluation.
