Certain Other Forms of Information Collected on the Internet
Cookies and IP Addresses
To learn more about cookies, the following websites provide useful information:
Like most standard website servers, we use log files. This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks.
Clear GIFs (Web Beacons/Web Bugs)
(Web Beacons/Web Bugs) We employ a software technology called clear GIFs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), which help us better manage content on our Site by informing us what content is effective. Clear GIFs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of users. The main difference between the two is that clear GIFs are invisible on the page and are much smaller, about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. In addition, we may use clear GIFs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by the recipients.
Do Not Track Signals
“Do Not Track” (“DNT”) signal is a HTTP header field indicating your preference of web browser tracking. We currently do not recognize DNT signals. Further, we work with third parties that use tracking technologies on our Websites in order to provide tailored advertisements on our behalf and on behalf of our business partners. These companies may collect information about your activity on our Websites and your interaction with advertising and other communications. This information may then be used to determine which ads you see on our Websites, third party websites and applications.
Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies and DNT signals. You can set your browser to notify you when you have received a cookie or DNT signal, giving you the opportunity to decide whether to accept it (except Flash cookies). You have the option to reject our cookies and/or DNT signals and still use our Websites, but you may not be able to access or use some of the features we offer on our Websites (including certain members-only functions and functions with respect to our referral and/or loyalty programs).Check your browser’s Help menu or your built-in mobile device settings to find out how to manage your cookie and/or DNT signal preferences. Some mobile devices store cookies and/or DNT signals not only in areas connected to the browser, but also in areas that are app-specific. Check your app settings options to manage those preferences.
We may use PII in a variety of ways, including through personal contact, via our Websites, through emails and correspondence, and through third parties, such as travel and other business partners. We use PII for the purposes we have disclosed to you, or as permitted by law. Generally, PII is used to provide you with the services you requested, maintain and manage membership accounts, provide you with suggested activities, accommodations and events, conduct periodic customer satisfaction and marketing research, understand your needs as a customer, comply with legal obligations, personalize your ER account, customize website and application settings, and protect ER Group properties. We also use the information to provide or offer you newsletters, promotions and featured specials, other marketing communications, product or service awareness marketing, and to conduct surveys, sweepstakes, prize draws, and other contests. We may provide these communications online, via email, telephone, mobile/text messaging (including SMS and MMS) and postal mail. We may also aggregate your PII with data from third-party sources.
If ER Group intends to disclose PII to a type of third party not previously discussed, ER Group will notify you and provide you with the opportunity to opt out of this disclosure. For sensitive personal information, ER Group will provide you with the opportunity to opt in to third party disclosure if this sensitive personal information is to be disclosed to a third party or used for a purpose other than those for which it was originally collected and authorized.
