PRIVACY COMES FIRST AT OUR NEW ORLEANS HOTEL
YOUR PERSONAL DATA
Hotel Monteleone will not collect any personally identifiable information about you (e.g., your name, address, telephone number, or email address) through our websites unless you have provided it to us voluntarily. If you do not want your personal data collected, please do not submit it to us.
When you do provide Hotel Monteleone with personal data, we may use that information in the following ways, unless stated otherwise: we may store and process that information to better understand your needs and how we can improve the products and services offered at our New Orleans hotel; we (or a fulfillment house or other third party on our behalf in connection with a promotion) may use that information to contact you; and/or we may provide other third parties with aggregate – but not individual – information about visitors to or users of our sites. We do not now and do not intend to sell, rent, or market personal data about you to third parties.
SPECIAL NOTE FOR PARENTS
Hotel Monteleone has no intention of collecting any personal data from individuals under 18 years of age. Where appropriate, the company will specifically instruct children not to submit such information on our New Orleans hotel websites and/or will take reasonable steps to ensure parental consent to such submission.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION COLLECTED AUTOMATICALLY
In some cases, Hotel Monteleone may automatically (i.e., not via registration) collect technical information when you connect to our site that is not personally identifiable. Examples of this type of information include the type of Internet browser you are using, the type of computer operating system you are using, and the domain name of the website from which you linked to our site.
INFORMATION PLACED AUTOMATICALLY ON YOUR COMPUTER – COOKIES
When you view one of Hotel Monteleone’s websites, we may store some information on your computer. This information will be in the form of a “cookie” or similar file and can help us in many ways. For example, cookies allow us to tailor our New Orleans hotel website to better match your interests and preferences. With most Internet browsers, you can erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block all cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. Please refer to your browser instructions or help screen to learn more about these functions.
This policy will cover two types of information gathered at the site: personal and aggregated. The term “personal information” refers to data you voluntarily provide while using the site that identifies you and/or the company on whose behalf you are accessing and using the site. Examples of personal information may include data in connection with our services, such as your name, email address, phone number, company affiliation, physical address and/or certain other personal information. The term “aggregated data” refers to general information regarding site visitors and users that relates specifically to the site, e.g. traffic patterns, number of visits to certain pages, visits from other websites or to third-party websites linked to the site, use of particular services and interest in services, information or features of the site, or other parties made available through or found at the site.
WHAT INFORMATION IS COLLECTED ABOUT YOU? HOW DO WE USE IT?
Hotel Monteleone takes the utmost care to ensure that the personal information we obtain from you is not used in a way that you may not be aware of or may not be agreeable to. You may wish to submit an information request about our New Orleans hotel, participate in one of our promotions or subscribe to our email or postal mail lists. In response, we may ask for information such as your name and postal address. In the event you opt to provide us with this information, we will only use it for the purpose specified by you at the bottom of the information gathering form. In deciding whether or not to join such lists, please note that they are only used for the Hotel Monteleone purposes. We do not sell, rent, or share any of your personal information with any other party, including third-party joint promoters, nor use it for commercial purposes.
PERMISSION FOR USE
WITHDRAWING CONSENT TO USE
USE OF AGGREGATED DATA
Hotel Monteleone is interested in improving the site and may develop and offer new features and services. We monitor aggregated data regarding use of the site for marketing purposes and to study, improve, and promote use of the site. In connection with such purposes, Hotel Monteleone may share aggregated data with third parties collectively and in an anonymous way. Disclosure of aggregated data does not reveal personal information about individual site users in any way that identifies who they are or how to contact them.
Hotel Monteleone has two exceptions to these limits on use of personal information:
1. Hotel Monteleone may monitor and, when we believe in good faith that disclosure is required, disclose information to protect the security, property, assets and/or rights of the Hotel Monteleone from unauthorized use or misuse of the site or anything found at the site.
2. Hotel Monteleone may disclose information when required by law; however, only to the extent necessary and in a manner that seeks to maintain the privacy of the individual.
To enable features at the site, Hotel Monteleone may assign one or more cookies to your Internet browser. Cookies, among other things, speed navigation though our site, keep track of information so that you do not have to re-enter it each time you visit our site, and may provide you with customized content about our New Orleans hotel. A cookie is an Internet mechanism composed of a small text file containing a unique identification number that permits a web server to send small pieces of information or text by means of your browser and place them on your computer’s hard drive for storage. This text lets the web server know if you have previously visited the web page. Cookies by themselves cannot be used to find out the identity of any user.
CHILDREN’S PRIVACY & PARENTAL CONSENT
Please be aware that Hotel Monteleone has designed this site to be used for information only purposes by all ages. However, as with any site, parental consent is encouraged.
You must be at least 18 years old to make reservations at our New Orleans hotel and/or submit personal information on our Site. Should Hotel Monteleone inadvertently acquire personal information or any other data from users under the age of 18, Hotel Monteleone will not knowingly provide this data to any third party for any purpose whatsoever, and any subsequent disclosure would be due to the fact the user under 18 used the Site and submitted personal information without solicitation by or permission from Hotel Monteleone.
LINKS PROVIDED TO OTHER SITES
Hotel Monteleone may provide links to a number of other websites that we believe might offer you useful information and services during your stay at our New Orleans hotel. However, those sites may not follow the same privacy policies of Hotel Monteleone. Therefore, we are not responsible for the privacy policies or the actions of third parties, including without limitation, any website owners whose sites may be reached through this site, nor can we control the activities of those websites. We urge you to contact the relevant parties controlling these sites by accessing their online policies for the relevant information about their data collection practices before submitting any personal information or other sensitive data.
WHAT INFORMATION IS SECURE? WHAT ISN’T?
Email communication to and from our site is not secure unless clearly noted otherwise. This is a risk inherent in the use of email. Please be aware of this when requesting information or sending forms to us by email.
When working with our internal database created online opt-in activity on the website, we employ industry standard encryption technologies to help protect consumer data.
