Information We Collect

Fortlauderdale.org collects information about users during their registration, inquiries, participation in certain activities on our website, including contests and polls; and through the use of cookies. When users request pages from our server, our web server may automatically collect some information about the users, including their IP addresses. These addresses may be used by computers on the network to send the requested pages to users.

When you give us your name, e-mail address or mailing address, we only use it to fulfill your request for materials or to supply you with future information that you have indicated that you wish to receive. If you participate in a contest or other promotional feature, we may ask for your name, address and e-mail address so we can administer the contest and notify winners. We know e-mail addresses and other personally identifying data about visitors to this site only when voluntarily submitted or posted to us by a user of our website.

When you complete an online survey on our site we may ask for contact information (e.g. your e-mail address) and, sometimes, demographic information (e.g. your age, zip code, travel habits, travel history, destination preferences, income range, gender, family size). We use this information to better understand our visitors and potential visitors and to improve this website and our travel products.

How We Use the Information

We do not share any personally identifying data about our website visitors with anyone. However, we reserve the right to, without notice to you, share non-public personal information with companies, partners and associates that work for or with us for the sole purpose of providing you with valuable services you’ve requested or already have through our website. These companies, partners and associates may assist us in fulfilling your requests or processing your transactions. We will only share information with companies, associates and partners that work for or with us to provide marketing and other services and with whom we have entered into a joint marketing agreement. These companies, partners and associates are contractually forbidden from disclosing our using our customer information other than to carry out the purposes for which the information was disclosed. These companies, associates and partners are in no way authorized to sell, rent or trade your personal information. While there are such contractual obligations in place, we cannot and do not guarantee that a third party could breach its obligation and use your non-public personal information in a way contrary to our policy.

We may also disclose information, including non-public personal information, in special cases when we have a good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to legal requirements or comply with the legal process such as, but not limited to, situations when we are required to do so by federal, state or local laws and regulations or when we receive a subpoena or are ordered by a court to do so; (b) protect and defend our rights and privileges; or (c) act to protect the interests of our users or others. Additionally, we may, without notice to you, provide aggregate statistics about visitors to our website, such as volume, traffic patterns and related site information to reputable third party vendors, but these statistics will include no personal information.

We endeavor to maintain strict security over all the information about the activity of visitors to this site. In addition to the foregoing, we use the information you share with us to reply to your requests, to update or improve our website and our individual and group travel products, and to assist with marketing research. We monitor website visitor traffic patterns to guide our further development and improvement of the site itself and to determine the effectiveness of our website content, programs and advertisements. We may also use the information we collect to notify you of changes to the website, services and special offers we think you may find interesting and valuable.

Security of Personal Information

Fortlauderdale.org exercises reasonable care to protect your non-public personal information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. So, while we strive to protect your non-public personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us or receive from us. This is especially true for information you transmit to us via e-mail. We have no way of protecting this information until it reaches us. Once we receive your transmission, we maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information.

Internally, we will limit access to non-public personal information to those associates, partners and employees who need the information to provide products and services to you or maintain or service those products or services. These associates, partners and employees are limited in number, and are committed to our privacy and security policies.
