What This Privacy Policy Covers

Club 1 Hotels, LLC. (“Club 1 Hotels”, “we”, “us”) knows that you care about how information about you is shared online. We want you to feel confident about using our website and are committed to protecting the information we collect. For that reason, we want to inform you how we treat personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) that we collect from users of both the full and mobile versions of our web site www.club1hotels.com and our mobile application (together, the “Club 1 Hotels Site” or “Site”). We also describe the choices available to you regarding our use of your Personal Information and how you can access and update this information. We have provided our full privacy policy below.

What information we gather and use

When you use the Club 1 Hotels Site, the booking engine or other services available through the Club 1 Hotels Site, we collect certain Personal Information, such as your name, email address, telephone number, username, password, mailing address, rewards number, credit/debit card number and related information.

We display personal testimonials of satisfied customers on our Site in addition to other endorsements. With your consent we will post your testimonial along with your name. If you wish to update or delete your testimonial, you can contact us using the information listed below.

If you access the Club 1 Hotels Site from a mobile device, with your consent, we will also gather geographic location information from you, to better customize your experience using the Club 1 Hotels Site.

As is true of most websites and apps, we also gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, device ID, and clickstream data. We use this information, to analyze trends, to administer the Site, to track users’ movements around the Site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We do not consider this automatically-collected data to be Personal Information except where we can link it to you as an individual or where applicable law requires us to.

How we use information

We share and use the information we collect in the following ways:

• To administer the Site: Your information helps us provide you with the services offered on our Site.

• To improve our Site: We continually strive to improve our offerings based on the information and feedback we receive from you.

• To improve customer service: Your information helps us to more effectively respond to your customer service requests and support needs.

• To process transactions: Specifically, your information will be shared with hotels and other travel partners to process transactions made on the Club 1 Hotels Site, and to third party providers of credit card transaction.

• To send periodic emails: The email address you provide for order processing will be used to send you information and updates pertaining to your order. We will also email you about specials and promotions offered through our Site, with your consent where required (see, “Unsubscribing from Club 1 Hotels Emails” below).

• To implement social networking features: Our Site include social media features, links to our various social media pages and Widgets, such as the Share this button or interactive mini-programs that run on our Site, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to properly function. Social Media features and Widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our site. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.

Certain regions, such as the European Union, require us to explain the legal bases we rely on to collect and process your Personal Information. We rely on: (1) Necessity to perform contract with you – we need to process your Personal Information in order to provide our travel reservation services to you, answer questions and requests from you, and provide customer support;

(2) Our legitimate interests – we process your information to maintain the security and safety of the Site, to detect and prevent fraud, to protect and defend the rights or property of others, or our own rights and interests, to customize and provide our reservation travel services to you, and to respond to lawful requests, court orders, and legal process;

(3) Compliance with legal obligations – we need to process your information to comply with relevant laws and regulatory requirements, such as to substantiate tax liability; and

(4) Consent – we rely on consent for direct marketing communications and certain cookies, which you can opt out of as detailed below.

Sharing your information

We will share your Personal Information with third parties only in the ways that are described in this Privacy Policy. Specifically, we share your Personal Information:

• With trusted third parties (such as hotels and other travel partners, credit card processors) who assist us in operating our business, processing credit card transactions or otherwise conducting our business, or providing services to you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. These companies are authorized to use your Personal Information only as necessary to provide these services to us. We will not sell, rent, loan or disclose your Personal Information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes without your consent. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information will be provided for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

• With our affiliated group companies who have access to this information with our permission and who need to know or have access to this information to perform the service requested by you (including customer services) and internal (audit/compliance) investigations.

• With regulatory authorities, courts, government agencies and other third parties when permitted or required by applicable law/regulation, to comply with a subpoena or similar legal process, to enforce Club 1 Hotels Site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety.

• In connection with a business transfer, if Club 1 Hotels is involved in a reorganization, merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Site of any change in ownership.

Protecting your information

We want you to feel confident about using our website and we are committed to protecting the information we collect. While no website can guarantee safety, we implement commercially reasonable security measures to maintain the safety of your Personal Information when you place an order or enter, submit, or access your Personal Information on the Site.

All supplied sensitive information (such as credit/debit card information) is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our payment gateway providers database only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. After a transaction, your credit card number(s) will not be stored on our servers, unless your reservation type requires us to forward such information to the hotel provider. Any credit/debit card numbers are processed, stored and transferred in a PCI compliant manner. Since no method of electronic processing, storage or transmission is 100% secure, if you have reason to believe that your experience on the Site is no longer secure (such as your account has been compromised), please contact us immediately as detailed below.

Our Site is operated in the United States. If you are located outside the US, your Personal Information will be transferred to the US, a jurisdiction that may not provide an equivalent level of protection as your home jurisdiction. The cross-border transfer to the US is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a transaction that you are requesting, and/or for the establishment, exercise, and defense of legal claims. To the extent permitted by local law, your use of the Site or provision of any Personal Information constitutes your consent to the cross-border transfer of Personal Information and the other activities identified in this privacy policy.

Use of cookies and other online tracking technologies

Cookies are small files that a website or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser (if you allow) that enables the websites or service providers’ systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. We use session and persistent cookies to help us remember and process the items in your shopping cart and understand and save your preferences for future visits. If you prefer, you can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off certain cookies via your browser settings. Like most websites, if you turn certain cookies off, some of our services may not function properly.

We partner with third party ad networks to either display advertising on our Site or to manage our advertising on other websites. Our ad network partner uses cookies and web beacons to collect information about your activities on this and other websites you visit to provide you targeted advertising based upon your interests. Web beacons are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of website users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, web beacons are embedded invisibly on web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence.

You can opt-out of receiving targeted advertisements by visiting www.networkadvertising.org/choices/ or www.aboutads.info/choices. However, even if you opt-out such technology, you may continue to receive advertisements from the relevant ad network, but the advertisements will not be tailored to your browsing activities and interests. Please also visit here to opt out of Google Analytics.

At this time the Site is not configured to honor browsers’ “Do Not Track” signals.

Updating and correcting information

We encourage you to promptly update your Personal Information if it changes. You can correct, update, amend, remove, or ask to have it removed by making the change on your user account settings page, or exercise any rights under applicable law, including to access, delete, restrict, object or transfer your Personal Information by emailing our Customer Support at privacy@rocketmiles.com or by contacting us by postal mail at the contact information listed below. If you no longer desire our service, please contact us directly using the same contact information. We will comply with requests under this section as soon as reasonably practicable as required by applicable law.

We will retain your Personal Information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. However, we will need to retain and use certain Personal Information for record keeping purposes, such as to complete and process any transaction you began prior to any request, as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, such as our tax, fraud and compliance obligations, to resolve disputes, or for other purposes as required or permitted by applicable law. In addition, please note that even if you opt-out of receiving marketing communications from us, we will still need to send you service-related communications and may need to keep Personal Information we have collected about you for record-keeping in order to honor your requests, research and other purposes.

Unsubscribing from Club 1 Hotels Marketing

We use your name and email address to send our promotions, newsletters and company news to you. Out of respect for your privacy, you can choose to stop receiving our newsletter or marketing emails by following the unsubscribe instructions included in these emails, accessing the email preferences in your account settings page or you can contact us at memberservices@club1hotels.com.

Links to other websites

The Club 1 Hotels Site contains links to other websites (including those embedded in advertisements and social media features) that are not owned or controlled by Club 1 Hotels. This privacy policy only applies to information collected by our Site. We have no control over these third party websites, and your use of third party websites are subject to privacy policies on such linked websites. Your use of third parties’ websites linked to our Website is at your own risk, so we encourage you to review the privacy policy at any third party website you visit.’

Children’s Privacy

The Club 1 Hotels Site is a general audience website and does not offer service directed to children. Should a child whom we know to be under 13 send personal information to us, we will use that information only to respond directly to inform the Childe that we must have parental consent before receiving the child’s personal information.

Terms and Conditions

Changes to our Privacy Policy

On occasion Club 1 Hotels may revise this privacy policy to reflect changes in the law, our Personal Information collection and use practices, the features of our Site, or advances in technology. If we make any material changes we will notify you by email (sent to the e-mail address specified in your account) or by means of a prominent notice on the Club 1 Hotels Site, and obtain your consent if required, prior to the change becoming effective.
