What Personal Information We Collect
We collect personal information that you choose to provide voluntarily when using our web sites and mobile applications. This information includes your IHG® Rewards Club account. You can use our site without creating an account, but you will need to create an account if you want to take advantage of certain features, such as "Favorite Destinations," "Room/Rate Preferences" and other time saving features. We may also ask for personal information when you contact our Customer Service department. This will allow us to protect your confidentiality by verifying your identity.
Following a stay in one of our hotels, your hotel stay information is collected and stored by our hotels locally, and subsequently transferred to a centralized database. This facilitates aggregated trend analysis used for hotel management purposes such as planning new hotel locations, evaluating hotel amenities, guest preferences, and advertisement planning. In addition, your business with us is valued and we may use the record of your stay to send you via postal mail or email, communications such as guest surveys or promotional offers and benefits. You may "opt-out" or choose to be excluded from these communications by noting this on your guest registration during your hotel stay or by contacting Customer Service. For Customers who do not reside in the United States, and who have not chosen to enroll in the IHG® Rewards Club program, we may contact you regarding your satisfaction with your hotel stay but will not send you any sales promotional communications or special offers unless you have consented to receive such communications.
Our web sites do not intentionally solicit or collect personal information about children under the age of 13. If you are under 13 and would like to use our web site, please ask a parent or guardian for assistance.
Some of our promotional offers have a "Tell A Friend" feature that allows you to have the offer sent to a friend with your comment. If you choose to use this feature, we collect the email address of your friend(s) to facilitate the referral but do not store it for other uses.
