Last Modified: August 11, 2017

Please read the following policy (“Privacy Policy”) to learn about our privacy practices. By visiting any Expedia Partner Central website, including but not limited to https://www.expediapartnercentral.com, https://discover.expediapartnercentral.com and https://join.expediapartnercentral.com (collectively the “Site”) you are accepting the practices described herein.

What information we collect from you

In General. We receive and store any information you provide to us through the Site or give us in any other way. This includes information that can identify you (“personal information“), such as your first and last name, telephone number and postal and email addresses.

Automatic Information. We automatically collect some information about your computer and your online activity when you visit the Site. For example, we may collect your IP address and information about what web browser software you use to access the Site (such as Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Internet Explorer). Our goals in collecting this automatic information include helping to customize your user experience and inhibiting fraud. With the exception of your IP address, we do not automatically collect your personal information.

How we use your information

We use your information to provide you with the products and services you request; to communicate with you in general; to respond to your questions and comments; to measure interest in and improve our products, services and the Site; to resolve disputes, or troubleshoot problems; to prevent potentially prohibited or illegal activities; to enforce the Site’s Terms of Use; and as otherwise described to you at the point of collection.

With whom we share your information

We may share your information:

  • In response to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal processes; to establish or exercise our legal rights; to defend against legal claims; or as otherwise required by law. In such cases, we reserve the right to raise or waive any legal objection or right available to us.
  • When we believe it is appropriate to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal or suspected illegal activities; or to protect and defend the rights, property, or safety of our company, the Site, our customers, or others.
  • To companies within our corporate family. To the extent that our corporate affiliates have access to your information, they will follow practices that are at least as restrictive as the practices described in this Privacy Policy.
  • In connection with a corporate transaction, such as a divestiture, merger, consolidation, or asset sale, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy.
  • With your consent.
  • Other than as set forth above, you will be notified when personal information about you will be shared with third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to have us share such information.

We also may share or aggregate your anonymous information with third parties, including advertisers and investors. This information does not contain any personal information and is used to develop content and services we hope you will find of interest.

Your Choices and Opting-Out

You can correct or “opt-out” of receiving emails from us at any time by following the instructions included in your email or by sending a reply stating your request, and we will make the requested changes. We reserve the right to email you with respect to important notices even if you have requested not to receive emails from us. Please also note that we may retain certain information associated with you, including for analytical purposes as well as for recordkeeping integrity.

Cookies and other technologies

Cookies are small data text files and can be stored on your computer’s hard drive (if your web browser permits). The Site uses cookies to help us recognize your browser as a previous visitor and it can save and remember any preferences that may have been set while your browser was visiting the Site.

The help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether.

How we protect your information

We want you to feel confident about using the Site and we are committed to protecting the information we collect. While no website can guarantee security, we have implemented appropriate administrative, technical, and physical security procedures to help protect the personal information you provide to us. For example, only authorized employees are permitted to access personal information, and they may only do so for permitted business functions. In addition, we use encryption when transmitting your sensitive personal information between your system and ours, and we employ firewalls and intrusion detection systems to help prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to your information.

Children’s privacy

The Site is not directed to children and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13. Should a child whom we know to be under 13 send personal information to us, we will use that information only to respond directly to that child to inform him or her that we must have parental consent before receiving his or her personal information. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at LodgingProductMarketing@expedia.com.

The data protection and other laws of the United States and other countries might not be as comprehensive as those in your country, but please be assured that we take steps to ensure that your privacy is protected. By using our services, you understand that your information may be transferred to our facilities and those third parties with whom we share it as described in this Privacy Policy.
