Keeping the confidentiality of your personal information (namely username and email) is of utmost importance. In the course of our service to you, we may request other personal information. This is only requested when instrumental in delivering our services.
Here are some of the principles that are followed:
Disclosure of Purpose of Collecting: At the time we collect personal information or before, we will let you know why we are asking (if its not obviously stated). In your details, fields that are public are identified with labels like: "Caution: Public" and are made optional. We never share your personal username and email information with other kinds of businesses or other users – that personal information stays with us and our authorized representatives.
Getting Consent: We ask for your consent to obtain personal information where it’s not obviously given. Consent can be written, in a form, implied, or given verbally. You can always withdraw consent, for example, if you don’t want to hear about our new services or receive newsletters and other related news, we will follow your requests. You may also remove your city, state/province, and/or reservation number to make your record anonymous. Under My Account you may opt out of all these communications by setting your subscription preferences.
Limiting the Collection of Personal Data: We will only ask for information that is necessary to protect the data integrity and to communicate with you regarding issues with data you or others have contributed.
Limiting the Use, Disclosure, and Retention of Personal Data: We will limit the use, disclosure and retention to what is reasonable and to what matches the purpose for which it was collected, except as may be required by law.
Safeguards in Place: We have safeguards in place to protect your personal information against loss, theft, unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification. For example, we have security features to protect where our data is located and ensure that only authorized persons can access to this data. Registered members may extract the data for their personal use and your personal information (such as username and email) is not attached.
Reminder: You may have shared your personal information such as city, state and/or your reservation sequence number on other public forums. This is a method someone may use to identify you. This information is optional if you choose not to disclose it. We take no responsibility for those linking Model X Tracker records to you via this method.
