What kind of personal information does QUALYTALY.COM use?
When you make a purchase, you'll be asked for your name, address, telephone number, email address, payment details.
To make it easier to manage your purchases, you can open a user account. This allows you to save your personal settings, review previous bookings and manage future purchases.
When you visit our website, even if you don't make a purchase, we may collect certain information, like your IP address, which browser you’re using, and information about your computer’s operating system, application version, language settings and pages that have been shown to you. If you're using a mobile device, we might also collect data that identifies your mobile device, device-specific settings and characteristics, and latitude/longitude details. When you make a purchase, our system registers through which means and from which websites you've made your purchase.
We may also receive information about you when you use certain social media services.
Why does QUALYTALY.COM collect, use and share your personal data?
Purchases: First and foremost, we use your personal data to complete and administer your online purchase and forward your purchase details to the accommodations you've booked.
Customer Service: We provide international customer service during business day/time from our local offices. Sharing your details with our global customer service staff allows us to respond when you need us – including helping you find appropriate products and services and responding to any questions you might have about your purchase.
Customers’ Reviews: We use your contact information to invite you by email to write a customer review after your purchase. This can help other customers choose the product that suit them best.
Account Administration: We offer a user account facility on our website. We use the information you give us to administer this, allowing you to manage your purchase, take advantage of special offers, make future purchases more easily and manage your personal settings. Managing personal settings allows you to keep and share lists, share photos, see products and services you've searched for before, and see other information you've provided before. It also allows you to see any reviews you've submitted about products you've purchased. If you want, you can share certain information in your user account by creating a public profile that’s associated with either your own first name or a screen name of your choice. The type of information you can share in this way includes your photo, the names of products you've purchased, your lists, your reviews and other information about Sellers and Products/Services.
Marketing Activities: We also use your information for marketing activities, as permitted by law. For example:
When you make a purchase with us or set up a user account, we may use your contact information to send you news about similar products and services.

You can opt out, or unsubscribe, from marketing communications at any time using the "Unsubscribe" link in each newsletter, or you can administer your subscriptions through your account (if you've created one).
Based on the information you share with us, individualized offers may be shown to you on the QUALYTALY.COM website, in mobile apps or on third-party websites, including social media sites.

How does QUALYTALY.COM use social media?
We use social media to promote our accommodation partners’ properties and to promote, improve and facilitate our own services. For example, we integrated social media plugins into the QUALYTALY.COM website. So when you click on one of the buttons and register with your social media account, information is shared with your social media provider, and possibly presented on your social media profile to be shared with others in your network.
In addition to implementing these buttons, QUALYTALY.COM uses social media by maintaining accounts and offering apps on several social media sites. These social media services may allow you to share information with QUALYTALY.COM. When you register with a social media app, you'll be told which information will be shared with QUALYTALY.COM. The information you choose to share with us may include the basic information that’s available in your social media profile, email address, status updates and your list of friends. This information is necessary to create a unique user experience either in the app itself or on our websites. It facilitates things like personalizing our website to suit your needs, connecting you with your friends on travel destinations, and analyzing and enhancing our travel-related services.
We may also enable you to sign in to QUALYTALY.COM services with your social media accounts. Your social media provider will be able to tell you more about how they use and process your data in such cases.
