Collection and use of personal information
Members who log into the Website
Members are individuals who are enrolled in Interval’s timeshare exchange program, generally in connection with the ownership of vacation property. In order to use the Website for membership purposes, a member must register and create a profile which will enable access to the member benefits and services offered by Interval. Members who create a profile will be identified and their use of the Website will be tracked. Further information about how this is done can be found in our Cookies Policy.
Your personal data will also be collected as a result of your participation in membership, for example, when you confirm an exchange transaction or a purchase of a Getaway. To complete the transaction, you will be asked for information such as name, membership number, postal address, email address, and credit card number.
The information that we require to process a transaction is only used to complete your transaction quickly and accurately. Your contact information will only be used to provide the product or service that you purchase and your billing information will only be used to bill you for that product or service. Other than as detailed further below, we will not use this information for marketing purposes, nor will it be shared with any third parties other than as necessary to provide the product or service.
While membership is required to gain access to the full breadth of online content, a section is maintained for visitors, and registration to access this area is not necessary. As a visitor, you can browse the visitor's content of our Website without entering any personal data. Although the Website logs Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and browser types, we do not link this information to anything which could identify you as the user, therefore your session on the Website will be tracked, but you will not be identifiable through that information.
Whether you are a member or a visitor to the Website, if you complete the contact form on the "Email Us" page of our Website, you will need to provide us with your name and email address to enable us to respond to you; therefore, this personal data will be collected from you.
The Website logs IP addresses and browser types for systems administration purposes and these logs will be analysed to constantly improve the value of the materials available and to ensure that the content is presented in the most effective way for you and your device.
Purpose and legal basis for processingWhen you provide us with your information on the “E-Mail Us” page we will use it for the purposes of administering your query and responding to you. We therefore have a legitimate interest in processing your personal data in this way.
When you provide us with your information on the member transaction page, or if you book a holiday through Interval, we will process your personal data to complete the transaction and communicate with you in order to perform the requirements of the contract to which we are both a party in relation to that transaction.
Where we use your personal data for marketing purposes, we will provide you with an opportunity to unsubscribe from receiving such communications as part of every communication we send to you. If you would like to stop receiving marketing from Interval, you can do this by emailing us at: email@example.com, unsubscribing using the unsubscribe link in any email you receive from us, or where you have a member profile, by updating your preferences in the membership area of the Website.
Where we store your information and securityInterval International, Inc. is based in the United States of America (USA), therefore the data we collect from you may be transferred and stored outside of Colombia, and specifically stored on servers based in the USA. Your data may also be processed by staff operating outside of Colombia who work for us or our suppliers for the purposes set out above.
Interval employs security firewalls and network-based intrusion detection monitors to protect your personal data. When you place an order online, your personal data and credit card information are tokenized before being sent over the Internet. This protects your personal data from being stolen or intercepted while being transferred through cyberspace. Your credit card information is never stored on our web servers.
We will retain your personal data for so long as we have a lawful basis for processing it. For example, where you are a member of Interval, we will retain your personal data for the duration of your membership, and thereafter for so long as is required to comply with our legal and regulatory requirements. We will purge or otherwise remove your personal data from our systems at the end of the applicable time period.
Sharing your personal data with third partiesInterval does not share member information with third parties other than as necessary to provide products or services requested by you. However, to enable us to provide services to members, your personal data may be controlled and/or processed by, and shared within Interval and third parties who are acting on Interval’s behalf as suppliers or service providers. Such third parties are only provided with the personal data which is necessary for the purpose stipulated by Interval in order to fulfill Interval's contractual obligations with you and they are subject to confidentiality obligations. Interval will not provide your personal data to third parties to use for their own marketing purposes.
In any case, Interval will only share the personal information in accordance with the requirements established by Colombian law for the execution of transmissions and transfers of personal data, whether national or international. The Interval companies have data sharing agreements in place which provide adequate measures to ensure the security of your personal data. Interval will not otherwise disclose your personal data to any person or organisation, and Interval will never sell your personal data to anyone.
