Collection of Information
We collect information when, for example, you use our website or mobile features, book an accommodate through us, register for promotions, events and newsletters we sponsor (together, “Services”) or otherwise provide us information about yourself. The type of information we collect may include:
- Account information such as your name, postal and e-mail address, phone number, social media username(s), and any information you may share about your plans, interests and preferences.
- Transaction information may include account information as well as your booking transaction history.
- Login credentials such as your user name and password and other verification data elements.
Use of Information
The information we collect is generally used to provide you with the Services, personalize them to you and maintain and improve their quality, monitor and analyze your use, and understand your needs so that we can serve you better. Importantly, we use the information we collect to process and complete booking transactions and send you related information, including booking confirmations, invoices, updates, and applicable instructions and notices as well as to provide you customer services. From users who are required to login to gain access to particular website features or Services, we collect and use usernames, passwords and other login credentials to verify user authorization. We may also use your information to contact you about changes and updates to bookings you have made, Service features we may offer and opportunities you may be interested in. If you prefer not to receive communications from us, we make it easy for you to let us know. You can contact us at any time via the process noted in Contact Us below to request an update to or removal of your personal information on file or modification of our use of your information (see Your Choices below).
Sharing of Information
We may share certain personal information you provide us outside of the RA family. For example:
- We will provide booking information to the third-party property owners or managers of the properties where you intend to stay, as well as to trusted third party service provides who help us provide our Services, including payment processing services and other business operations.
- We may permit certain trusted third parties to track usage and analyze data such as the source address of a page request, the related IP address or domain name, the date and time of the page request, the referring website (if any) and other parameters in the URL. This is collected in order to better understand our Service usage and enhance performance of our Services. We may also use third parties to host or operate various Service features, deploy emails, analyze data, provide search results and enable links among other things.
- We may also provide access to data that include your information in connection with a contemplated or actual banking, capitalization, insuring, sale or other strategic initiative or transaction affecting title in or ownership of all or part of our business or assets, including for the purposes of determining whether to proceed with the transaction or fulfilling any records or other reporting requirements to relevant third parties. In the event of any such transaction, our title in and/or possession of your personal information, among other things, may be transferred or assigned.
- We also may share your information when you specifically ask or authorize us to do so, or when we conclude disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request, to enforce our agreements and policies, and where circumstances otherwise warrant doing so.
Social Sharing Features
We take industry standard measures to secure, administer and store your personal information to protect against its loss, misuse or alteration while under our control to reduce the risks of loss, unauthorized access, disclosure and alteration. Some of the safeguards we use are firewalls and data encryption, physical access controls, and information access authorization controls. That said, data transmission over the Internet is not 100% secure. Although we use industry standard security measures, we do not guarantee against the loss, misuse or alteration of any information during its delivery or under our control. We thus urge you to always take care how you handle and disclose your personal information over the Internet. If you suspect that the security of your personal data has been compromised, please report your concerns to us via the process noted in the Contact Us section below.
