Privacy Policy

At Vacation Internationale, Inc. and Vacation Ownership Sales, Inc., we (including our subsidiaries and affiliates) recognize the sensitive nature of your personally identifiable information (“PII”) and are committed to protecting your privacy. We have prepared this privacy policy to explain what kind of PII we collect from you, how we use it, who we share it with, and choices we offer, including how to access and update information.

What kind of PII we collect

We collect the following types of PII from you:

  • PII we receive from you on our purchase documents and other forms, which may include your social security number, employment, income, expenses, and assets;
  • PII regarding your transactions and experiences with us, which may include reservation information, credit card information, and information regarding your stay at one of our resorts;
  • PII that we receive through your use of the Vacation Internationale websites (www.viresorts.com and www.viowners.com), including log files stored on the web server saving details such as your IP address, email and user name, and cookies that may be used to remember your preferences when interacting with the website; and
  • PII you provide to us through any other means such as information provided at one of our sales kiosks, via e-mail, over the telephone, and through a social media service (for example Facebook or Instagram).

We may combine the information we collect from you over time and we may combine such information with information that is publicly available, collected through cookies and other technologies, and information that we receive from our partners, affiliates and other third parties.

How we use your PII

Most of the PII that we collect assists us in delivering the products and services you request. It may also help us design and offer specific products and services that we believe will be beneficial to you, conduct marketing and promotions, and improve our product and service offerings overall. We may also use PII to help us prevent and detect fraud or abuse, to comply with applicable legal requirements, to respond to your comments, inquiries and requests, or otherwise with your consent.

How we use cookies and other technologies

A cookie is a small file that resides on your computer, mobile phone, or other device, and allows us or our business partners to recognize your device when you return to our websites and record information about your usage of our Services.

We may use cookies for the following purposes:

  • Essential Operations – Cookies are necessary to allow us to operate our websites. For example, they are required to help you access secure areas (such as your account pages).
  • Analytics and Customization – We use analytics and customization cookies to gather information on how our websites are being used by our visitors. We use the data we get to help customize our websites and services for you and make the content you see as relevant as possible. We also use the data we collect to help identify and prevent fraud.

You are always free to decline cookies if your browser permits; although, by declining the use of cookies you may not be able to use certain features on our website. Also, because information we obtain may be combined, we may still be able to identify your web browser, computer or mobile device when you access our websites even if you disable cookies. Some browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” (DNT) feature that, when turned on, signals to websites and online services that you do not wish to be tracked. Because there is not yet an accepted standard for how to respond to browser DNT signals, we currently do not respond to them. For more information about the use of cookies and how to block them, visit www.aboutads.info/choices.

We may use other technologies similar to cookies for the same purposes as we use cookies, for example, we may use tracking images (such as GIFs), which are small image files that we embed into our e-mail newsletters, to learn whether you opened or forwarded the newsletter or clicked on any of the content. This information tells us about our newsletters’ effectiveness and helps us ensure that we’re delivering information that you find interesting.

These companies and organizations may use the information we share to provide, or help other companies provide offers or services to you, to market products, services or opportunities to you, or to perform data analytics based on your PII. Such third parties may have their own policies regarding their use of your PII.
  • Special Events – If you choose to participate in a special event (for example, a promotion, contest, or sweepstakes), we may share your PII with those organizations participating in the applicable event.
  • Legal and Governmental Authority; Fraud Protection – We may disclose PII for purposes of protecting confidentiality, preventing fraud, taking action regarding illegal activities or situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, responding to judicial process or appropriate regulatory authorities, or complying with federal, state, or local laws.

We may use and disclose, and authorize third parties to use and disclose, aggregate non-personal information at our discretion.

How we protect your information

We utilize a combination of physical and electronic security technologies, procedures, and organizational measures to help protect PII from unauthorized access, use or disclosure.
