Collection of Information

We collect Personal Information about you that you provide to us or that we obtain while you are using the Site. Even if you do not provide us with any Personal Information, we collect certain non-personal information about how you use our Site. This information cannot identify you and is used for statistical purposes only.

Protection of Information

We maintain reasonable technical, electronic, and organizational security procedures to maintain the security of Personal Information, and safeguard Personal Information against unauthorized or unlawful processing and/or against accidental or unlawful loss, alteration, disclosure or access. While we strive to protect your Personal Information, we cannot ensure the security of the information you transmit. It is your responsibility to safeguard any email or password that you have created or used in connection with this site.

Use and Sharing of Information

We use Personal Information to provide you with services from our Site, to build features that will make the services available on the Site easier to use, to contact you about these services, and to send advertisements, marketing material or other offers that we think might be of interest to you.

We do not share your Personal Information with other hotels, affiliated companies, external service providers, third party vendors, agents, or otherwise.

We only process your Personal Information to the extent reasonably necessary to fulfill your requests and meet our legitimate business and legal objectives. We may also use what we know about you to offer you other products and services. We may combine your online information with information collected from offline or online sources, or information we already have.

Cross-Border Data Transfers

The Site is hosted by servers in the United States. We transfer Personal Information to various jurisdictions as necessary for the purposes described above, including to jurisdictions that may not provide the same level of data protection as your home country. We provide appropriate protections for cross-border transfers as required by law for international data transfers. To the extent permitted by local law, your use of the Site or provision of any Personal Information constitutes your consent to the cross-border transfer of Personal Information and the other activities identified in this Privacy Policy.

Marketing

You have control on how we use your Personal Information for marketing. If you no longer wish to receive any marketing communications, remain on a mailing list to which you previously subscribed or receive any other communication from Blu Zen, please follow the unsubscribe link in the relevant communication. Even after you opt-out or update your marketing preferences, we may still contact you for transactional or informational purposes. These include, for example, customer service issues, surveys, or any questions regarding a specific reservation.

Use of Cookies

Our Site uses cookies and other similar technologies. Information is also obtained in other ways through technology. Some of this information may be linked to you personally. In accordance with applicable law, Blu Zen uses essential and non-essential cookies, online tracking tools, web beacons, and similar technologies (collectively, “cookies”) on our Site. We process this information to help our Site function correctly, and better understand the needs of our customers.

Where required to do so by law, we may seek your prior consent to any material changes we make to this Privacy Policy. Otherwise, your continued use of our site after we make changes to this policy is deemed acceptance of those changes. If any proposed change is unacceptable to you, you may request that we remove your Personal Information (and/or that of other individuals for whom you made your travel reservations) from our records.
