The Resort At Port Ludlow is strongly committed to protecting the privacy of your

By visiting our Web Site, you are accepting the practices described in our Privacy

Policy. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy, please do not

What Information About Me Is Collected and Stored?

The Resort adheres to the highest standards of ethical practices in all of our

operations and is dedicated to protecting the privacy of all visitors to our Web Site.

Our privacy policy is simple: Except as disclosed below, we don’t sell, barter, give

away, or rent your personal information to any third party outside of the Resort.

One of the basic principles we’ve tried to follow in designing this Web Site is that

we ask for only the information we need to provide the service you’ve requested.

As a result, the information we collect and store depends almost entirely on how

you choose to make use of our Web Site and our services.

Personal information

We collect and store information that you enter into this Web Site. For example,

when you request to receive special offers, we collect and store some or all of the

following information that you provide: name, address, email address, telephone

number, and travel interests. This information is used to provide information that

you have requested. Some of this information also may be used to contact you

about special offers and new site features, unless you have opted not to receive

promotional communications in connection with this Web Site.

Anonymous Information

Through your use of the Web Site, we may also gather certain information that

does not identify you individually (“Anonymous Information”). Generally, this

information is collected through “traffic data”. We collect and store certain other

information automatically whenever you interact with this Web Site. For example,

we collect your IP address, browser information and reference site domain name

every time you visit this Web Site. We also collect information regarding customer

traffic patterns and site usage. This information is used to analyze and improve

this Web Site.

Use of Cookies and Spyware

We never use or install spyware on your computer, nor do we use spyware to

retrieve information from your computer.

Also, like many web sites, we use “cookies”, which are files stored on your

computer’s hard drive by your browser. Most browsers accept cookies

automatically but allow you to disable them. We recommend that you leave

cookies “turned on” so that we can offer you a better experience on this

Web Site.

We also may collect and store information about you that we receive from other

sources, to enable us to update and correct the information contained in our

database and to provide recommendations and special offers that we think will

interest you if you have agreed to receive e-mail from us.

Is Information Collected From Children?

We do not collect any personal information from anyone who we know to be under

the age of 13. If you are under the age of 13, you should use this Web Site only

with the involvement of a parent or guardian and should not submit any personal

information to us. Our Web Site is not intentionally targeted to children under

the age of 13. Children under the age of 13 should not use our Web Site without

obtaining prior parental consent.

How We Use Your Information?

Except as disclosed in this Privacy Policy, we do not collect, use or disclose

information about your individual visits to our Web Site or your personal

information collected online to any third parties. If we propose to permit any use

of your personal information, you will be provided an opportunity to instruct us not

to allow such contact.

Use of Anonymous Information

We use Anonymous Information to help us determine how people use parts of the

Web Site and who our readers are so we can improve our Web Site and ensure

that it is as appealing and informative as we can make it for as many people as

possible. We also use Anonymous Information to provide statistical “ratings”

information in aggregated form to our partners and other third parties about how

our users collectively use the Web Site. We may also use or share Anonymous

Information (or other information, other than personal information) in any other

manner that we deem appropriate or necessary.

Third-party Agents

We occasionally have third party agents and partners that perform functions on

our behalf, such as marketing, analytics, or fraud protection. These entities have

access to the personal information needed to perform their functions and are

contractually obligated to maintain the confidentiality and security of that personal

information. They are restricted from using, selling, distributing or altering this

data in any way other than to provide the requested services to the Web Site.

Transactional partners

We may share non-personal information with our partners and others from time to

time. Examples of such non-personal information include the number of users who

visited this Web Site during a specific time period or purchased a specific product

through this Web Site. This information generally is shared in an aggregated

anonymized form.

Emergency Situations

We may also use or disclose personal information if required to do so by law or

in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to applicable

law or comply with legal process served on the Resort or the Web Site; (b) protect

and defend the our rights or property, the Web Site or our users, and (c) act

under emergency circumstances to protect the personal safety of us, our affiliates,

agents, or the users of the Web Site or the public.

What Steps Are Taken To Keep Personal Information Secure?

The importance of security for all personal information associated with you is of

utmost concern to us. We exercise great care in providing secure transmission of

your information from your PC to our servers. Personal information collected by

our websites is stored in secure operating environments that are not available to

the public. In many instances, the personal information is encrypted. Only those

employees who need access to your personal information in order to do their jobs

are allowed access, each having signed confidentiality agreements. Any employee

who violates our privacy and/or security policies is subject to disciplinary action,

including possible termination and civil and/or criminal prosecution.

To protect the security of your information during transmission, we use Secure

Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. Most

browsers will give a visual indication of when your connection is secure. For

example, Internet Explorer will show a padlock icon in the lower right of the

browser window. While we try our best to safeguard your personal information

once we receive it, no transmission of data over the Internet or any other public

network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

What Happens When I Link To or From Another Web Site?

This Web Site contains links to other web sites operated by third parties. Please

be advised that the practices described in this Privacy Policy for portludlowresort.

com do not apply to information gathered through these other web sites. These

other sites may also send their own cookies to you, collect your data or solicit your

personal information. Always be aware of where you are on the web. We are not

responsible for the actions and privacy policies of third parties and other web sites.

We encourage you to be aware of when you leave this Web Site and to read the

privacy policies of each and every web site that you visit.

Governing Law/Assignment

The website is published in the United States and is intended

for users from the United States. U.S. law shall govern in any and all disputes,

including privacy or defamation issues or otherwise.

We may change our ownership or corporate organization while providing the

Web Site. As a result, please be aware that we may transfer your information

to another company with which we have merged. Under such circumstances

the Resort would to the extent possible require the acquiring party to follow the

practices described in this Privacy Policy, as it may be amended from time to time.

Changes to This Policy

As our Web Site continues to develop, we may add new services and features.

In the event that these additions affect our Privacy Policy, this document will be

updated appropriately. We will update the “Last Updated” date appropriately,

and will post changes prominently so that you will always know what information

we gather, how we might use that information and whether we will disclose it to

anyone. We do, however, recommend that you read this Privacy Policy each time

you use our Web Site to remain aware of the current Privacy Policy.

Opt-Out and Correction Procedures

You may always opt-out of receiving future e-mail messages from us. We provide

you with the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from us at the

point where we request information from you. There are several ways in which

you can tell us whether or not you want to receive promotional communications

from The Resort. You also will have an opportunity to change these selections

by following the “unsubscribe” or “preference center” instructions contained in

the promotional emails we send you. We also permit you to correct or update
