This Online Privacy Statement (“Policy”) was last updated on September 1, 2018.

HV Global Group, Inc. independently owns and manages the Hyatt Residence Club program and uses the Hyatt Vacation Ownership name and other Hyatt names and marks under license from an affiliate of Hyatt Hotels Corporation (“Hyatt”). HV Global Group, Inc. is an indirect subsidiary of Marriott Vacations Worldwide Corporation (“MVWC”) which is a global vacation company that offers vacation ownership, exchange, rental, and resort and property management, along with related businesses, products and services.

HV Global Group, Inc., its subsidiaries and managed owners’ associations (together “HVGG,” “we,” “our,” or “us”) respect your privacy and are committed to protecting it through compliance with this Policy. This Policy describes the type of information HVGG may collect from you or that you may provide when you visit any website owned or operated by HVGG. HVGG collects information about you so that we can provide an experience that is tailored to your preferences.

This Policy does not apply to information collected by HVGG offline or through other means, including on any other website operated by any third party (including our parent, affiliates and subsidiaries) that do not link to this Policy; or any third party through any application or content (including advertising and credit card processing service providers) that may link to or be accessible from or on HVGG websites.

HVGG is committed to providing information about the collection and use of personal information furnished by or from you while using our websites, products, and services. If you create a personal, online profile through a HVGG website, you will be offered the choice to decline (opt out) from receiving marketing offers provided by HVGG and/or our carefully selected third parties (“Strategic Marketing Partners”).

Please read this Policy carefully to understand HVGG’s policies and practices regarding your information and how it will be used. By accessing or using HVGG websites, you agree to this Policy. If you do not agree with the policies and practices of HVGG, your choice is to not use our websites. This Policy may change from time to time. Your continued use of the website after we make changes is deemed acceptance of those changes, so please check the Policy periodically for updates.

The following is an explanation of the information collected by HVGG, its use, and why the use of this information will benefit our visitors’ experience.

Your California Privacy Rights
California Civil Code Section 1798.83 provides certain privacy rights to individual customers who are California residents. If you are a California resident and have provided personal information to HVGG, you may request information about our disclosures of certain categories of personal information to third parties, if such disclosures were for the direct marketing purposes of the recipient of that information. Because your privacy is important to us, HVGG does not share your personal information with unaffiliated third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes, except as stated herein. HVGG does share customer information with and among its subsidiary companies for the purpose of marketing the various HVGG resorts, vacation and travel products and services, and shares certain information about the owners of vacation ownership interests with Hyatt, as operator of the World of Hyatt program and with the external vacation exchange company (Interval International) that is affiliated with the HVGG resorts. If you want to opt out of sharing this information, please submit your request by writing to the addresses listed in the Contact Us section below.

Information Collected On Our Websites

HVGG may ask for and collect personal information in order to provide a customized experience on our websites. The personal information we collect may include information that you provide by filling in forms on our websites, such as, name, postal address, e-mail address, and telephone number. With these fill in forms, you have the ability to choose the information you wish to share with us. You will be informed about how HVGG may use such information, including whether it will be shared with Strategic Marketing Partners. In most cases, the information you provide is added to our database in order for us to provide personally tailored messages which are delivered online and offline. If you perform a transaction with HVGG, you will be required to submit financial information such as your payment method (valid credit card number, type, expiration date, card security code or other financial information).

HVGG may also collect information using automatic data collection technologies to collect certain information about your equipment and browsing activities and patterns. Our automatic data collection activities are further described in the Cookies section of this Policy.

HVGG may contract with third-party service providers to deliver services and customer solutions. Service providers, which may change or be added from time to time, are required to keep confidential the information received on behalf of HVGG and may not use it for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for HVGG. Situations in which HVGG may disclose your information to others include:

  • When you have not objected to these types of disclosures or, in those jurisdictions where we are required to obtain your permission, when we have received your consent to do so;
  • In situations where sharing or disclosing your information is required in order to offer you products or services you requested (e.g., a vacation package);
  • When companies or services providers that perform business activities on behalf of HVGG require such information (e.g., credit card processing, customer support services, market research administration, or database management services);
  • When a hotel or other property leaves the HVGG system and access to your personal information is necessary to facilitate business operations or meet contractual obligations;
  • In the event HVGG is merged or acquired by another company;
  • To comply with legal or regulatory requirements or obligations in accordance with applicable law, a court order or a subpoena, to enforce the right of a lender, owners’ association, or foreclose on a property interest; and
  • In case of emergency such as to safeguard the life, health, or property of an individual.

If information is shared as mentioned above, we seek to limit the scope of information that is furnished to the amount necessary for the performance of the specific function. Unless otherwise precluded by legal process, we require third parties to protect your personal information and abide by applicable privacy laws and regulations.

You may choose to create a personal, online profile with a unique log in. It is necessary for HVGG to collect certain personal information from you to establish these accounts and allow you to perform various activities within the website. For owners of HVGG products, you will have to provide additional information to enable you to access your specific ownership information. If you do not wish to share your information, please do not create a personal, online profile.

Cookies

The websites may collect personal information through behavioral tracking. As you navigate through and interact with our websites, HVGG, its vendors, and marketing partners, may use automatic data collection technologies to collect certain information about your equipment, browsing actions and patterns. These help us deliver a better and more personalized service, including by enabling us to estimate our audience size and usage patterns; store information about your preferences, allowing us to customize our websites according to your individual interests; and speed up your searches.

Web Beacons and Invisible Pixels. Currently, HVGG does not use invisible pixels or web beacons to count how many people visit certain web pages. However, it may do so in the future. Information collected from invisible pixels and web beacons is used and reported in the aggregate and HVGG may use this information to improve marketing programs and content.

Cookies. Cookies are used to:

  • Remember your user name and password for future visits so log-in is easier and faster;
  • Ensure you are provided with the appropriate frames and content;
  • Ensure you obtain all requested information; and
  • Help us deliver communications that are relevant and responsive to your interests and location.

HVGG cookies assign your computer or other device with a unique identifier, which in turn, becomes your identification card whenever you return to a HVGG website. Cookies are small data files that most websites store, access, and maintain on the hard drive of your computer. Most browsers now automatically accept cookies by default but they can be set so that all or some cookies are rejected automatically or are accepted or rejected on a case-by-case basis at the user’s option.

Below we explain the different types of cookies that may be used on our websites.

  • Strictly Necessary Cookies. These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the site and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the site. Without these cookies, management of your account and reservations cannot be provided. These cookies do not gather information about you that could be used for marketing purposes. By using this site, you agree that we may place these types of cookies on your device.
  • Performance Cookies. These cookies collect information about how you use this site. For example, they may collect information on which pages you visit most often or if you received an error message from one of the pages on this site. These cookies do not directly collect information that identifies you. When you provide information that identifies yourself, we may use these cookies to provide relevant information on the site based on information that you have provided and your activities on the site. By using this site, you agree that we may place these types of cookies on your device.
  • Functionality Cookies. These cookies allow the site to remember the choices that you make, such as your user name, language preference, or the region that you are in. The site then uses that information to provide enhanced features. While the information collected by these cookies is anonymous, these cookies may be able to identify you when combined with other data because they track certain ISP information for your settings. They do not gather any information about you that could be used for advertising or remembering where you have been on the internet. When you choose to make changes to options or settings on the site, you agree that HVGG may place functionality cookies on your device. By using this site, you agree that we may place these types of cookies on your device.
  • Advertising Cookies. Advertising cookies allow us to show you the most relevant products, offers, advertisements and personalized content and help us provide you with an online experience that’s tailored to your needs.

We may also work with vendors and marketing partners to help deliver advertisements and personalized content that we believe will be of interest to you. These vendors and marketing partners include advertisers, advertising agencies, advertising networks, audience segment providers, data exchanges, analytics providers, and other similar providers. These partners and vendors use cookies and web beacons to collect information about your online activity (e.g., the sites and pages you have visited at HVGG and other third-party websites) in order to help HVGG and third-party advertisers deliver personalized content and advertising to you while you are on HVGG or other websites. For example, if you go to a HVGG website to look at one of our properties or to book a villa, you may later see an advertisement from us when you visit another website. We may also engage one of these vendors to deliver our advertisements to consumers whose online behaviors on websites other than the HVGG websites indicate that they may be interested in travel. To opt out of our vendors’ use of cookies to tailor personalized content or advertising, please visit: www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp or www.aboutads.info/choices.

In the future, we may work with vendors to deliver our advertisements directly to those who are traveling or about to travel. For example, when you print your boarding pass online, one of our vendors may drop a cookie on your computer, identifying your computer with a unique identifier and a code indicating your destination.

Access To Personally Identifiable Information

We respect your privacy and maintain your personal information on a secure server. If you create a personal, online profile for which you have a unique log in, you can review and change your personal information and online communication preferences by logging into that website and visiting your account profile.

Occasionally, information you request to be changed or removed will be retained in certain files in order to properly resolve disputes or to troubleshoot problems. In addition, information is never completely removed from our databases due to technical and legal constraints, including stored “back up” systems. Therefore, you should not expect that all of their personal information will be completely removed from our databases in response to such requests.

Data collected by HVGG is an asset. It is possible that HVGG, its parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, joint venture companies, or any combination of the foregoing, could merge with or be acquired by another legal entity.
