SunCity Paradise is an online service that provides recommendations for hotels, resorts, inns, vacations, travel packages, travel guides and lots more. Our Web site is part of the SunCity Paradise, which is owned and operated by SunCity Paradise. More details about SunCity Paradise LLC can be found below under “How you can contact us.”
We understand that providing information online involves a great deal of trust on your part. We take this trust very seriously, and make it a high priority to ensure the security and conﬁdentiality of the personal information you provide to us. Before submitting your personal information to our Web site, please read this Policy carefully to learn about our privacy practices. By visiting SunCity Paradiseʼs Web site, suncityparadose.com, you are accepting the practices described herein.
We receive and store any information you enter on our Web site or give us in any other way. This includes information that can identify you (“personal information”), including your ﬁrst and last name, telephone number, postal and e-mail addresses, user name and password. We may also request information about your travel plans, style, and preferences, including meal requests, seat selection, frequent ﬂyer/hotel/car rental program information, and ﬂight class, luggage, and ticketing options. You can choose not to provide information to us, but in general some information about you is required in order for you to enjoy the beneﬁts of being a registered member. For example, only registered members are able to post travel reviews, participate in discussion forums, e-mail SunCity Paradise content to themselves and others, access members-only newsletters and travel planning content, and enter surveys, contests, or sweepstakes. In addition, some information is also required in order for you to ask us a question or initiate other transactions on our site.
You will have the opportunity to provide contact information for other people through our Web site. You should obtain the consent of other individuals prior to providing SunCity Paradise with their personal information.
We also may periodically obtain both personal and non-personal information about you from afﬁliated entities, business partners and other independent third-party sources and add it to other information about you. For example, if you visit SunCity Paradise by “clicking-through” from a site operated by one of our business partners, and you have registered with that partner, then information about you that you have provided to that partner may be shared with us, such as contact information and demographic information. As another example, if you access third party services, such as social media services, through our Web site or before coming to our Website, we may collect information such as your user name, password, and other information made available to us through those services in order to improve and personalize your use of our Web site.
We automatically collect some information about your computer when you visit SunCity Paradise. For example, we will collect session data, including your IP address, Web browser software, and referring Web site. We also may collect information about your online activity, such as content viewed and pages visited. One of our goals in collecting this automatic information is to help us understand the interests of our users and customize your user experience.
The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers should 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 most types of cookies. Please note that if you refuse to accept cookies, you may not be able to access many of the travel tools offered on our sites.
Our sites also may use Web beacons (also known as clear gifs, pixel tags or Web bugs), which are tiny graphics with a unique identiﬁer, similar in function to cookies, that are placed in the code of a Web page. We use Web beacons to monitor the trafﬁc patterns of users from one page within our sites to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our site from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party Web site, and to improve site performance. We also may allow our service providers to use Web beacons to help us understand which emails have been opened by recipients and to track the visitor trafﬁc and actions on our site. This helps us measure the effectiveness of our content and other offerings.
Data collected to serve you with relevant advertising SunCity Paradise and its afﬁliated websites are committed to providing you with relevant content and information across our sites. To do this, we may collect information about your travel-related searches, such as whether you are looking for airline ﬂights or hotels, and use this information to serve you with ads on our sites or elsewhere online that match your apparent interests. So, for example, if you search for a ﬂight to Florida on suncityparadise.com, you may see an ad for a Florida package on suncityparadise.com or on another website you visit.
We do not share your personal information (such as email addresses) with unafﬁliated third parties so they can serve you with advertisements.
Many of the advertisements you see on the suncityparadise.com family of sites are served by suncityparadise.com or its service providers. But we also allow third parties to collect information about your online activities through cookies and technologies. These third parties include (1) business partners, who collect information when you view or interact with one of their advertisements on our sites, and (2) advertising networks, who collect information about your interests when you view or interact with one of the advertisements they place on many different Web sites on the Internet. The information
gathered by these third parties is used to make predictions about your characteristics, interests or preferences and to display advertisements on our sites and across the Internet tailored to your apparent interests.
