Qualityvillas.com - Privacy Policy

Commitment to your privacy... This site is owned and operated by Quality Villas (hereafter referred to as QV). Your privacy on the Internet is of the utmost importance to us. At QV we want to make your online experience satisfying and safe. Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we feel you should fully understand our policy and the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather about you and your online behaviour on our website, and how we use it. By accessing or using this site, you agree to the terms of this Privacy and Cookie Policy. If you do not accept the terms of this policy, please cease using any of QV sites. Information QV gathers and tracks QV gathers two types of information about users:

  1. Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. These are voluntary submissions to receive our electronic newsletters and to email a friend or share a property, etc.
  2. Information QV gathers through aggregated tracking information derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our sites. This information allows us to better tailor our content to readers' needs. Under no circumstances does QV divulge any information about an individual user to a third party.

We currently offer (or may offer in the future) the following free services, which require some type of voluntary submission of personal information by users: Electronic newsletters QV offers a free electronic newsletter to users. QV gathers the email addresses of users who voluntarily subscribe. Users may remove themselves from this mailing list by following the “Click here to unsubscribe link” provided in every newsletter. "Send to a friend" Site users can choose to electronically forward a link to a property page to someone else by clicking "Send to a friend". The site user must provide their email address, as well as that of the recipient. This information is used only in the case of transmission errors and, of course, to let the recipient know who sent the email. The information is not used for any other purpose. Usage tracking QV tracks user traffic patterns throughout the whole of our sites. However, QV do not correlate this information with data about individual users. QV does break down overall usage statistics according to a user's domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user's browser).
