Your Personal Information
We do not collect personal information, such as e-mail address or telephone number, from you on our site unless you register, complete a survey, inquire about one of our advertiser's properties, or enter a contest. If you list or advertise a vacation rental with FindVacationRentals.com, we collect your personal information for billing purposes only.
Registration & Order Forms
When you sign up for My Places, we need only your e-mail address-which we use to send you any My Places special offers you request.
When you request vacation rental availability, we collect your name, e-mail address and phone number. This allows the vacation rental owner to respond to your request.
When you enter a contest or complete a survey, we may ask for your name, address, and e-mail address so we can administer the contest and notify winners.
When you submit a vacation rental review, we ask for your e-mail address so we can contact you if we have questions about your review. If you are willing to be contacted via e-mail by other FindVacationRentals.com members who may want to ask more questions about the vacation rental you reviewed, we will include your e-mail address. However, you can choose not to have your e-mail address displayed with your review. We also ask for your name and phone number. This is not published on the Web site and is used only to verify the legitimacy of a review.
We may also use the information we collect to notify you occasionally about new FindVacationRentals.com services, promotions and special offers we think you'll find valuable. The contact information may also be used to send promotional material from some of our partners to our registered members.

This site has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. FindVacationRentals.com takes advantage of 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption of all sensitive data, including credit card and billing information. In addition to SSL encryption, FindVacationRentals.com regularly audits all activity on its servers, and performs routine security analysis on all systems, datastores, and procedures to ensure that information is not compromised.

About SSL (how you send us your private information)
SSL (or Secure Sockets Layer) is a protocol developed specifically for transmitting private documents and encrypted communications via the Internet. It is the leading security protocol on the Internet. When an SSL session is started, the server sends it public key to the browser, which the browser uses to send a randomly-generated secret key back to the server in order to have a secret key exchange for that session. SSL is layered beneath application protocols such as HTTP, SMTP, FTP and NNTP. It is also used by the HTTPS access method.
