What personal information is held by DRI and how is this information being used?
If you are a DRI owner, member, own a timeshare interest at a DRI-managed resort, or reserve accommodations at our resorts as a non-owner or non-member, you provide your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address as part of our registration process to create a unique login name and password. This information is collected on the registration form for several reasons including: (i) personal identification; (ii) to complete reservations, save points, make payments; (iii) to allow us to contact you for customer service, if necessary; and (iv) to customize the content of our site to meet your specific needs. In addition, your e-mail address is collected to send you an e-mail message confirming your new registration and each savings request, payment or reservation you transact online. As an owner, member or guest you will occasionally receive updates from us about discounted availability, special offers, new services and products which may be of interest to you and other noteworthy news items.

Owner/Member and Non-Owner/Non-Member Profiles
Owners, Members, Non-Members and Non-Owners can choose to provide DRI with credit-card information. This information is primarily used to assist in making payments quickly without having to type in the same information repeatedly.
Sweepstakes and Contests
DRI frequently sponsors sweepstakes and contests to give owners/members and non-owners/non-members the opportunity to win great travel prizes. Information collected by DRI for such contests can include contact information and survey questions. Contact information is used to notify contest winners, and survey information is used to develop promotions and product improvements to DRI.
DRI values opinions and comments from owners, members and guests so we frequently conduct online surveys. These surveys are entirely optional for all owners, members and guests. Typically, the information is aggregated and used to make improvements to DRI products and services and to develop appealing content, features and promotions for owners. Survey participants are anonymous unless otherwise stated in the survey.
DRI collects IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our servers and for system administration.
Like many other websites, our servers automatically record information about your IP address, which ads you click on, the page that directed you to our website, and the browser type used while accessing our website. A server log stores the information collected so it can be analyzed.
Who will the information be shared with, if anyone?
Our affiliates include companies that are subsidiaries and affiliates of Diamond Resorts Corporation and Diamond Resorts (Europe) Limited. Your information may be shared with any of our affiliates. Other than to Interval International Inc. and its subsidiaries, data will not be made available to companies outside our group for marketing purposes although it may be necessary, from time to time, to release information about you (including sensitive information such as a medical condition, disability or a dietary requirement) to external suppliers such as airlines/car hire companies to enable a comprehensive service be provided to you and to process the transaction information. Please also be advised that all airlines are now required by laws introduced in the US and other countries to give cross border control agencies access to customer data. Accordingly any information held about you and your travel arrangements may be disclosed to the customs and immigration authorities of any country in your itinerary. The data of European Members of THE Club may also be supplied to First National Trustee Company Limited, an Isle of Man based company (whose details are set out in the Deed of Trust) in order to enable it to perform its supervisory and regulatory functions.
We do not sell individual customer names or other private profile information to third parties and have no intention of doing so in the future. Occasionally, DRI will hire a third party to act on our behalf for projects such as market-research surveys and contest-entry processing and will provide information to these third parties specifically for use in connection with these projects. The information we provide to such third parties is protected by a confidentiality agreement ensuring that it is used solely for completing the specific project. See "What other information should I know about my privacy?" below.
We may collect information from you that is not Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) such as the date and time you visited the website, the web browser you used, and the page you visited that directed you to our website. This non-PII is collected and analyzed to determine how you found out about us, your interests in our products and services, and how to improve our website. We may also collect information from your activities on the website and other websites for the purpose of generating advertisements according to your interests and preferences. This may result in our ads being displayed on participating websites based on your browsing activity. This is achieved by allowing third party advertising companies to access things like cookies, IP addresses, and server logs.
Some of the non-PII collected may be combined with your PII to further enhance your experience while on the website. Although we do not share your information with anyone other than those described above, external third parties may use their own tracking software which collects information about you through the website.
