We at HomeWays take privacy seriously. Under no circumstances will we ever sell, redistribute, or give away any of your information to third parties. We recognize the importance of protecting the privacy of certain information collected about the users and visitors of Our Web Site (referred to as “User,” “You” or “Your”).
To that end, HomeWays only gathers information about You from data that You provide through optional, voluntary registration on Our Web Site.
With Whom Does Home Ways Share Information?
Business Partners & Sponsors: HomeWays may disclose some or all of Your Personal Information to business partners or sponsors, but this use will be specifically described to You prior to data collection or prior to transferring the data. Many promotions offer opportunities to request additional information from sponsors. By requesting more information, You give HomeWays permission to transfer Your Personal Information to the sponsor so they can fulfill Your request. In many instances, only Your e-mail address will be shared. If more Personal Information will be shared with the sponsor, You will be notified prior to the transfer.
Third Party & Aggregate Data: From time to time, You may be offered the opportunity to receive materials or special offers from third parties. If You opt to receive information from these third parties, HomeWays will (with Your permission) share Your name and e-mail address with such third parties. Under confidentiality agreements, HomeWays may match Personal Information with third party data.
What Happens When You Link To A Third Party Site?
You should be aware that when You are on HomeWays ’s Web site You can hyperlink, or be directed to, other Web sites that are beyond Our control and/or outside Our service. For example, if You “click” on a banner advertisement the “click” may transfer You off Our Web Site. These other Web sites may include sites of advertisers, sponsors, and partners. These other Web sites may send their own cookies to Users, collect data, or solicit Information.
Please keep in mind that whenever You give out information on-line (for example, via message boards or forums) that information can be collected and used by people You do not know. While HomeWays strives to protect Users’ information and privacy, We cannot guarantee the security of any information You disclose on-line, and You disclose such information at Your own risk.
Is Information Secure From Others Using The HomeWays Web Site?
The security of all information associated with Our Users is an important concern to Us. We exercise care in providing secure transmission of Your information from Your computer to Our servers. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while We strive to protect Your information, HomeWays can’t ensure or warrant the security of any information You transmit to Us or from Our on-line products or services, and You do so at Your own risk. Once We receive Your transmission, Home Ways uses industry standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of Your information. However, “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet.
