Privacy Policy

Omni Hotels recognizes that in delivering a quality online experience, the privacy and safety of our users are at least as important as the content we provide them. Omni Hotels' policy is to respect and protect the privacy of our users. This privacy policy explains how and when we collect information from children and other users, and what we do with that information.

We do not sell, share or intentionally make any personally identifying information publicly available, except as provided herein or except in compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) of 1998. We use our best efforts to keep the collection of information to a minimum and we never collect more information than reasonably necessary to participate in our activities. Children can use most of the features of our website without giving us any information at all.

Certain features of the Omni Hotels site collect personally identifiable information which is necessary for their implementation. For example, in order to enable participation in contests, we need to collect contact information so that we know how to contact the winners and where to send the prizes.

Prior to collecting any personally identifiable information from children, we obtain parental consent (in accordance with COPPA).

Parents have the right to review, delete and refuse to permit the collection of any personally identifiable information. Please send an email with your child's email address to kidscontest@omnihotels.com to revise or delete the information your child has provided.

We do not condition a child's participation in an activity on the child's disclosing more personal information than reasonably is necessary to participate in that activity.

SWEEPSTAKES AND CONTESTS - From time to time, Omni Hotels offers contests for children. We ask children to provide their e-mail address and their parent's e-mail address. In order to make sure that parents have as much control over their children's Internet activities as possible, we send an e-mail to the parents advising them that their child has registered for a contest. In the absence of parental consent, we delete the e-mail addresses we collected from the children. If the parents do consent, then the child is entered in the sweepstakes, and Omni Hotels will contact the parent via e-mail if their child is the winner. We delete all e-mail addresses and other information collected in connection with the contest once the contest has ended. We do not use them for any other purpose.

LINKS - For the enjoyment of your children, we may also link to other sites that are commercial, educational, or entertaining. We are not responsible for those other sites, and we advise you to check their privacy policies as well. In order to alert children, we place a notice on our site when the child is leaving Omni Hotels.com.

IMPORTANT LEGAL INFORMATION - Although Omni Hotels follows and complies with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act and the regulations promulgated thereunder, this does not guarantee safety. Omni Hotels does not guarantee the actual identities claimed by its users, whether children or parental. Also, we do not guarantee that your children will not voluntarily release personal information about themselves or about you or their friends or other acquaintances on our site or on sites that they visit or link to from our site. It is very important that parents understand the features, uses and potential risks of using the Omni Hotels site. That's why we advise all users to practice safe computing and urge parents to advise their children not to give out any personally identifiable information without their consent.

Omni Hotels makes no guarantees, warranties or representations that you or your child will be absolutely safe or insulated from inappropriate content or behavior and we do not guarantee, warrant or represent that a child will not try to circumvent, or be successful in circumventing, the features on our site. Furthermore, Omni Hotels does not assume any obligations, liability, or responsibilities associated with such behavior or associated with the obligations of parental supervision.

Omni Hotels reserves the right to change the information, features, products, policies, promotions, disclosures and disclaimers at any time. Changes to this Privacy Policy will be posted on the Omni Hotels site. Please check these terms periodically for changes. The continued use of the Omni Hotels web site following the posting of changes to these terms will mean you accept such changes, and any offline consent provided under COPPA will be deemed to apply to the revised policies and new or modified features; however, in the event there is a material change in our data collection, use or disclosure practices, we will obtain a new consent.

Thank you for being concerned with kids' privacy and safety issues and for taking the time to read this Privacy Policy. We hope that you and your children enjoy the Omni Hotels site.
