At the Stanford Inn (Inn), the privacy and confidentiality of our user’s information is important to us. We are committed to maintaining the privacy and security of your user information. We may update this policy from time to time, so please check here frequently. The Stanford Inn will not disclose identifiable user information to any third party without consent.

We take the utmost care to ensure that the personal information we obtain from you is not used in a way that you may be unaware of or not agreeable to. You may wish to submit an information request about the Inn, participate in one of our promotions or subscribe to our e-mail or postal mail lists. In response, we may ask for information such as your name, email or postal address. In the event you opt to provide us with this information, we will only use it for the purpose specified by you at the bottom of the information gathering form.
Information Collected on the Site may be used to:
* Plan and purchase inn accommodations
* Enter your email in our promotions or sweepstakes
* Send marketing communications or surveys or other communications to you
* Respond to your questions or suggestions

All forms will provide an opt-out button to allow you to choose not to participate in the Inn’s lists and future online marketing. In deciding whether or not to join such lists, please note that they are only used for the Inn purposes. We do not sell, rent or share any of your personal information with any other party including any third-party joint promoters, nor use it for unapproved commercial purposes. You may request to be removed from our lists at any time. All emails distributed to our lists will contain easy, online access to unsubscribe.
Permission for Use
If you decide to make an online reservation at the Site, you will be linked to a reservation interface and a third party booking engine (“Booking Engine”) provided by a vendor. While it may appear to be part of the Site, the Booking Engine is in fact provided by a third party and is governed by its privacy practices. We understand that security remains the primary concern of online consumers and have chosen the Booking Engine vendor carefully. All information sent to this site, if in a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) session, is encrypted, protecting against disclosure to third parties.
Protecting your information
The Inn would like Site visitors to feel confident about using the Site to plan and purchase their accommodations, so the Inn is committed to protecting the information we collect. The Inn has implemented a security program to keep information that is stored in our systems protected from unauthorized access.
Our Site is hosted in a secure environment. The Site servers and systems are configured with data encryption, or scrambling, technologies and industry-standard firewalls. When you enter personal information during the reservation process, or during a customer email sign-up, your data is protected by SSL technology to ensure safe transmission.

The Inn is interested in continually improving the Site and may develop and offer new features and services. We monitor aggregated data regarding use of the Site for marketing purposes and to study, improve and promote use of the Site. In connection with such purposes, the Inn may share aggregated data with third parties collectively and in an anonymous way. Disclosure of aggregated data does not reveal personal information about individual Site users in any way that identifies who they are or how to contact them.
The Inn has two exceptions to these limits on use of personal information:
(1) The Inn may monitor the Site and, when we believe in good faith that disclosure is required, disclose information to protect the security, property, assets and/or rights of Inn from unauthorized use, or misuse, of the Site or anything found at the Site.
(2) The Inn may disclose information when required by law; however, only to the extent necessary and in a manner that seeks to maintain the privacy of the individual.
To enable features at the Site, the Inn may assign one or more cookies to your Internet browser. Cookies speed navigation through our Site, keep track of information so that you do not have to re-enter it each time you visit our Site, and may provide you with customized content.
