What Information Is Collected From You?
Personal Information means any information that may be used to identify an individual.

When you browse our website and subsidiary sites, you do so anonymously, unless you have previously indicated that you wish VficHotels.com to remember your login and password. VficHotels.com does log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer) to give us an idea of which part of our website you visit and how long you spend there. However, we do not link your IP address to any personal information unless you have registered and logged in to our website. When you visit certain VficHotels.com web pages, you need to be registered and to login with a password. The use of those web pages, and the information downloadable from those sites, may be governed by a written agreement between your employer and VficHotels.com. Unless you request your personal information to be deleted, it may be retained by VficHotels.com to verify compliance with the agreement, to track software and documents downloaded by you, or track page visits and usage of other applications available on our site. VficHotels.com may receive personal information from its business partners and suppliers. VficHotels.com only uses such information if it has been collected in accordance with acceptable privacy practices consistent with its policy and applicable laws.
