Using WordPress and its tools we collect whatever data you provide on the website. Also, we may collect the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help us detect and delete spam. In addition, we may use automated tools to detect and/or filter spam submissions.

Our website may generate an anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) and submit it to the Gravatar service to see if you are using Gravatar. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. And after approval of your comment, your profile picture may be visible to the public in the context of your comment.

In addition, if you provide images, information or a guest post for us to use on this website we may retain information you provide to us, including your contact information.

Data Confidentiality and Sharing

GoDaddy.com provides hosting for this website. Therefore, the website information appears on their servers and as backups on Carbonite.com and Dropbox.com. Also, it appears on personal computers and drives belonging to the Association and MLP and their respective representatives.

We protect your personal information with passwords, firewalls and other methods. Moreover, we use the same care as we do in protecting our own information. However, no system can be completely secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that all information will always remain protected. You may wish to refer to the Federal Trade Commission’s article entitled How to Keep Your Personal Information Secure for information on how to protect yourself against identity theft.

If you leave a comment, our website will retain the comment and its metadata indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments more accurately and efficiently. Also, any other information will remain in our website records indefinitely. However, if you request, we will delete any of your personal information that we have in our records.

The Association and MLP will authorize its representatives and employees to use your personal information only in connection with rentals or potential rentals. Thus your information may be available to someone who may assist us with maintaining the website, in response to a court order or legal requirement, or in the unlikely case that the Association sells this website.

Media

If you provide images to us for use on the website, you should avoid providing images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Otherwise, if you include location data, visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Cookies

If you leave a comment or message on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. We understand that these cookies will last for one year.

Embedded Content from Other Websites

Pages and posts on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Consequently, this embedded content from other websites behaves as if the visitor has visited another website.

Those websites may collect data about you. In addition, they may use cookies, embed third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content. Also, they may trace your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

The website may use Google Analytics or similar tools to measure how you and other visitors use the website. This information is anonymous and does not identify you as an individual, or the computer you are using.

Third-Party Websites

There are links on this website that lead to other websites. For example, these include such sites as the Booking Website, our Facebook page and our YouTube videos. Probably, those websites have their own privacy policies, which you may wish to consult. We use personal information that you enter on the Booking Website to assist you with reservations or potential reservations. Moreover, that information is available to the Association and MLP to assist you with your booking and visit.

Privacy Policy – Rental Office / Rental Agent

If you contact the Association’s Rental Office or Rental Agent to request information about vacation rentals, you may provide us with personal information such as name, e-mail address, phone number and number of adult and minor guests. We will maintain that information unless you ask us to delete it. And we may use that information to contact you once in a while unless you ask to be taken off our mailing lists. Also, we may enter your personal information into the Booking Website to keep you on our contact list and to assist you with current or future bookings.

Sharing with Condominium Owner

If you are a past or future guest at the Association’s property address, you will be renting a condominium belonging to an individual owner who has joined the Association. Therefore, the owner of that condominium is a party to the agreement that secures your vacation rental. Because our owners sometimes like to contact their guests, upon request by the condo owner we will share contact information for that condo’s past and future guests.

Credit Card Information

If you make a reservation with the Association, we may ask you for credit card information to process a deposit and to pay for your rental. The credit card information that you enter into the Booking Website applies only to the current transaction. The website does not store it. Moreover, credit card information used by the rental office is not given to the condominium owner.

What rights you have over your data

If you submit information to this website you can request to receive a copy of whatever data we retained. And we will make a reasonable good faith effort to find all of that data. Also, you can request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we must keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

This website is for the use of adults only and may contain material not suitable for children. Furthermore, we do not knowingly collect personal information from minors.

This privacy policy covers collection of information on the website from residents of the United States. If you are visiting the website from outside the United States, please be aware that your information may be transferred to, stored, and processed in the United States where this website’s servers are located.
