Like most website operators, Bowmont Motel collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Bowmont Motel’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Bowmont Motel’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Bowmont Motel may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Bowmont Motel also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Bowmont Motel does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Bowmont Motel’s websites choose to interact with Bowmont Motel in ways that require Bowmont Motel to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Bowmont Motel gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a profile at BowmontMotel.com to provide an email address. Bowmont Motel collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Bowmont Motel. Bowmont Motel does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Bowmont Motel may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Bowmont Motel may monitor the most popular profiles on the BowmontMotel.com site. Bowmont Motel may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Bowmont Motel does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Bowmont Motel discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that
(i) need to know that information in order to process it on Bowmont Motel’s behalf or to provide services available at Bowmont Motel’s websites, and
(ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others.
Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Bowmont Motel’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Bowmont Motel will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Bowmont Motel discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Bowmont Motel believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Bowmont Motel, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Bowmont Motel website and have supplied your email address, Bowmont Motel may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Bowmont Motel and our products. We primarily use our various product profiles to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Bowmont Motel takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
