III. What Does PRCC Do with the Information It Collects?
The primary reason why we collect information from you is to provide
you with the services that you request and to enhance your experience
at our website. Some services would be impossible without the personal
information that you provide to us. We also use the information we
collect to improve the content of our website by making sure that our
website provides you with the resources you need and the level of
quality you expect. For example, information about the sections of the
website that people visit most frequently and least frequently helps us
to decide which features website users find useful and which features
need some changes.
In addition to our internal use of the information we collect, your personal information is used to help make sure that you receive all the information you need to make your stay in Puerto Rico as pleasant as possible. One way we do this is by using your e-mail address to send you periodic updates about Puerto Rico. We also sometimes share your name and postal address with reputable companies that we believe you might be interested in hearing from. These companies might contact you directly to let you know about special deals and unique opportunities that could make your vacation in Puerto Rico more enjoyable.
While we believe that the more information you have about Puerto Rico the more likely you are to enjoy your visit, we also understand that you value your privacy. If you would prefer that PRCC not e-mail you any periodic updates about PRCC and/or not share any personally identifiable information about you with any third party, all you need to do is tell us. Just e-mail us at email@example.com or telephone us at (787) 725-2110 and let us know about your preference.
Please be advised, however, that we reserve the right to disclose any personal information about you without your prior consent if we have a good faith belief that such disclosure is necessary to: (1) conform to legal requirements or comply with valid legal process, such as a search warrant, subpoena, or court order; (2) protect our rights or property; (3) enforce the provisions of the Terms and Conditions of Use; or (4) prevent harm to you or others.
Also, PRCC sometimes shares with third parties certain non-personal, summary information about the people who use our website. This information is not personally identifiable in any way and consists of facts such as the average numbers of visitors to our website per day and the most popular sections of our website.
