Our Privacy Policy

This website, www.AmericInn.com (the "Site"), is owned and operated by AmericInn International, LLC. We are committed to maintaining the privacy and confidentiality of information obtained from our Site visitors. That is why we developed the privacy policy described below.

PRIVACY POLICY

Other than to access your Reward Program information, we don't require you to register or provide information in order to view our Site. To provide you with relevant information, resources and services, we gather certain types of information about you through our use of our Site. This Privacy Policy governs how we collect, use, and maintain your personal information on the Site. As described in this Privacy Policy, this Policy does not extend to the collection of your information for the reservation and booking services and does not extend to any third party link that you may click on from our Site. This Privacy Policy also does not cover any information you may post to AmericInn hosted sites on social media platforms, like Facebook® or Twitter®. The information you provide on those sites is governed by their Privacy Policies.

This Privacy Policy covers two types of information gathered at the Site, personal and aggregated. The term "personal information" refers to data that you voluntarily and knowingly provide in connection with use of the Site. It identifies you and/or the company on whose behalf you are accessing and using the Site. Examples of why you might provide this information include a response to one of our interactive advertisements or promotions, making or confirming a reservation online, or making an inquiry through our Site. The personal information that you submit might include your name, e-mail address, phone number, company affiliation, physical address and/or certain other personal information. We don't collect personally identifiable information unless you provide it to us voluntarily and knowingly. We also regard this personal information as confidential and maintain it under stringent security conditions.

The term "aggregated data", on the other hand, refers to general overall information regarding Site Users such as their overall traffic patterns, number of visits to certain pages, visits from other web sites, visits to third-party web sites linked to the Site, use of particular services, and interest in the services, information or features of the Site or other parties made available through or found at the Site.

What Information Is Collected About You? How Do We Use It?

We only use your information in the ways identified in this Privacy Policy, our Terms of Use, or as agreed to you by you. We collect information from you when you request information about an AmericInn location, participate in one of our promotions, respond to an interactive advertisement, or subscribe to our e-mail or postal mail lists. In response to your inquiries or communication, we may ask for information such as your name, email address, hotel preferences, or physical address. In the event you opt to provide us with this information, AmericInn International, LLC, will only use it for the purpose specified by you at the bottom of the information gathering form or as provided for in this Privacy Policy.

We may, however, forward your information to a third party or affiliated organization that we engage to perform a service on our behalf, initiate direct marketing programs, conduct data tracking on our Site, perform maintenance or development of our Site, products or services, or other contracted promotional opportunities we provide. In addition, information collected on the Site may be used to:

  • Register you as a member of our loyalty program
  • Plan and purchase AmericInn lodging accommodations or other goods and services
  • Enter your email address in our promotions or sweepstakes
  • Send marketing communications or surveys to you
  • Respond to your questions or suggestions
  • Improve the quality of your visit to the Site or monitor your preferences
  • Follow-up with you after you visit one of our AmericInn locations
  • Make records of your transactions and provide reservation confirmations
You may choose not to participate in AmericInn lists and future online marketing by contacting us at Marketing@AmericInn.com. AmericInn will not sell, rent or share any of your personal information with any third party that is not affiliated with the AmericInn lodging system, such as third-party joint promoters. You may request to be removed from our lists at any time. All emails distributed to our lists will contain easy, online access to unsubscribe.

Permission For Use

We may collect and use personal information that you submit at the Site in any manner that is consistent with uses stated in this Privacy Policy, Terms of Use or disclosed elsewhere at the Site at the point you submit such personal information. At the time you submit personal information or make a request, the intended use of the information you submit will be apparent in the context in which you submit it and/or because the Site states the intended purpose. By submitting personal information at the Site, you are giving your consent and permission for any use that is consistent with uses stated in this Privacy Policy, our Terms of Use or disclosed elsewhere at the Site at the point you submit such personal information.

Secure Reservations and Online Booking Engine

If you decide to make an online reservation at the Site, you will be linked to a secure reservation interface and booking engine ("Booking Engine"). While it appears to be part of our Site, the Booking Engine is actually provided by an affiliated third party vendor whose privacy practices will govern your use of the Booking Engine. The Booking Engine vendor employs a comprehensive security program and all information sent to the Site, when in a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) session, is encrypted, in an effort to provide protection against disclosure to third parties. In addition,

  • The Booking Engine vendor has a Network Solutions Secure Site ID.
  • All information sent to this Site, if in an SSL session, is encrypted, offering further protection against disclosure to third parties.

Rewards Program

If you decide to enroll in our Reward Program online or set up an online account to access your information, you will be required to provide a username and password for your account. You are responsible for keeping your password secure and not sharing your password with an unauthorized user. In the event you forget your password, we may provide you with a temporary password to set up another password to access your account.

Protecting Your Information

AmericInn International, LLC is committed to protecting the information it collects. Our Site is hosted in a secure environment. The Site servers/systems are configured with data encryption, or scrambling, technologies, and industry-standard firewalls. When you enter personal information during the reservation process, your data is protected by SSL technology to ensure safe transmission.

Withdrawing Consent to Use

If, after permitting use of your personal information, you later decide to limit the use of your personal information by AmericInn, leave our Reward Program, or opt out of our mailing list, send an email to us at Marketing@AmericInn.com or follow the instructions provided in communication to you to “unsubscribe” from our mailing list.

Use of Aggregated Data

We monitor aggregated data regarding your use of the Site for marketing purposes and to study, improve and promote use of the Site. In connection with such purposes, we may share aggregated data with third parties collectively and in an anonymous way. Disclosure of aggregated data does not reveal personal information about individual Site Users in any way that identifies who they are or how to contact them.

Necessary Disclosure of Your Personal Information

There are limited exceptions where we may disclose your personal information without your consent to a third party:

  1. We may monitor and, when we believe in good faith that disclosure is required, disclose information to protect the security, property, assets and/or rights of AmericInn International, LLC, our Site, or anything found at the Site from unauthorized use or misuse.
  2. We may disclose information when required by law; however, we will do so only to the extent necessary and in a manner that seeks to maintain the privacy of the individual.

Use of Cookies

To enable certain features on the Site, we may assign one or more "cookies" to your Internet browser. Cookies, among other things, speed navigation through our Site, keep track of information so that you do not have to re-enter it each time you visit, and may provide you with customized content. A cookie is an Internet mechanism composed of a small text file containing a unique identification number that permits a web server to send small pieces of information or text by means of your browser and place them on your computer's hard drive for storage. This text lets the web server know if you have previously visited the web page.

We use cookies to collect and maintain aggregated data (such as the number of visitors) to help us see which areas of our Site are most popular with our Users and to improve and update the content on our Site. The use of “cookies” may allow us to tailor your experience on the Site to destinations or other features that may interest you. We use this aggregated data only as explained in this Privacy Policy. We do not connect aggregated data to any name, address, or other identifying information.

You may occasionally receive cookies from unaffiliated companies or organizations that place advertising on or are linked to our Site. These third-party cookies may collect information about you when you "click" on their advertising or content or link. Because of the way in which the Internet operates, we cannot control collection of this information by these third parties, and these cookies are not subject to our Privacy Policy.

You may limit the collection of “cookies” from the site through your browser settings. This may limit our ability to offer certain products and features to you.

Should we inadvertently acquire personal information or other data from Users under the age of 18, we will not knowingly provide this data to any third party for any purpose whatsoever, and any subsequent disclosure would be due to the fact the minor used the Site and submitted personal information without solicitation by or permission from us.

Links Provided to Other Sites

We may provide links to other websites that we believe could offer you useful information and services. However, those sites may not follow the same privacy policies as us. Therefore, we are not responsible for the privacy policies or the actions of any third parties, including without limitation, any website owners whose sites may be reached through this Site, nor can we control the activities of those websites.
