Hotlanta is committed to its policy of protecting the privacy and confidential information of our Members who register and who from time to time might purchase services offered by Hotlanta.
Upon registration, Members provide us with personal information such as their name, address and email address. We use this information to establish individual accounts protected by a password the Member selects. We ask for some additional demographic information from our members so that we can better serve their needs with appropriate content and advertising.
With respect to Members, Hotlanta uses the email address supplied in the registration process to confirm registration, and to send notices and updates to you concerning the services and the site. We will also add you to Hotlanta's mailing list.
We do not want to collect any personal information whatsoever of minors-in fact, we ask that minors do not submit any information about themselves and that they not use this Site. Anyone using this Site or the Services warrants and promises that they are 18 years of age or older.
No. Hotlanta does not disclose any personally identifiable information to other members. Demographic information on members may be disclosed to advertisers, however it is disclosed only in aggregate form.
Members should be aware, however, that in responding to forums topics, email, chat, or instant messages that they may be disclosing their own personally identifiable information to other Members. The security and privacy protections in place on this Site and through the Service do not cover this type of transfer or disclosure of personal information. Members responding to others are solely responsible for the content of their responses.
Most of the limited, non-personally identifiable information collected is used to operate, develop, and improve our products and services. For example, Hotlanta may use your IP address to determine which language to use to provide you with Internet search results or to advise you how far a particular vendor is from your location. In addition, information collected from end-users may be used in aggregate form to, among other things, determine the total number of end-users who are using our Service, prepare utilization reports for our partners or affiliates (collectively, "Partners"), diagnose and fix compatibility problems or other problems with our Service, and perform statistical analyses to enable us to build higher quality, more useful online services. The information collected from end-users also allows us to deliver search results pages that are as responsive as possible to an individual end-user's particular search query (for example, serving results in the end-user's native language and tailored to the end-user's country of connectivity). We also take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to, or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of, data.
Any web sites that you click to from one of our pages may have been developed by third-parties over which we exercise no control. Such web sites may send their own cookies to end-users, collect data, or solicit personally identifiable information from you. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such web sites including such web sites' use of any information collected when our end-users click through to such web sites. Even though such information might not identify you personally, we strongly encourage you to become familiar with the privacy practices of those web sites.
Hotlanta stores personal information of Members in secure databases protected by passwords as well as database and network firewalls to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of personal information. While no security systems are infallible, Hotlanta will prosecute any unauthorized access to secured information to the fullest extent of the law. Hotlanta periodically reviews and updates security measures to insure the best possible protections for the membership.
