Virtual Cities Privacy Notice to our Members and Viewers

Our Commitment To Privacy
Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.

The Way We Use Information:
We use the information you provide about yourself when placing an order only to complete that order. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order. If you become a member of Virtual Cities, we use this information to design and present your information to the public for travel, lodging, vacations and cooking.

We may in the future offer gift-cards to our viewers by which you can personalize a gift certificate you order for another person. Information you provide to us to create a gift-card is only used for that purpose, and it is only disclosed to the person receiving the gift and the lodging facility the gift card is for.

We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared or sold to outside parties.

We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website and to share with advertisers. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website. We do not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals. Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.

The Information We Collect:
This notice applies to all information collected or submitted on the Virtual Cities website. On some pages, you can order, services, make requests, and register to receive materials.

Our Email-a-Friend program has an opt-in program to receive newsletters and promotional information from Virtual Cities. The information we collect for this program is name and email only. We do not use or sell that information to any other entity or for any other purpose. If you opt-in you will receive a newsletter not more than once a month. Our monthly newsletter is to share with you specials and travel information.

Our Commitment To Data Security
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

Our Commitment To Children's Privacy:

Virtual Cities is a family friendly site. We do not publish adult content, sexual information or content, nudity, drug related content, or violence. Our site is all about travel, lodging, family vacations, food, recipes, and art.
