Conditions of Use
Secure Ordering Through PayPal
Any purchase you make at VacationRentalPros.com is extremely safe. VacationRentalPros.com utilizes PayPal Corporation's (www.paypal.com) online order payment system to ensure that your transaction is secure.
PayPal automatically encrypts your confidential information in transit from your computer to theirs when you make payment using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL) with an encryption key length of 128-bits (the highest level commercially available). Before you even register or log in to PayPal, their server checks that you're using an approved browser - one that uses SSL 3.0 or higher.
Once your information reaches PayPal, it resides on a server that is heavily guarded both physically and electronically. PayPal servers sit behind an electronic firewall and are not directly connected to the Internet, so your private information is available only to authorized computers.
When you visit VacationRentalPros.com, or send email to us, you are communicating with us electronically. You consent to receive communications from us electronically. We will communicate with you by email, or by posting notices on this site. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.
Information We Collect
VacationRentalPros.com collects user information in various ways: personal information (ie. Name, email address, mailing address, ) that you supply when registering for, subscribing and/or purchasing services or products through our web site, information that you provide regarding your interests, and activity and preference tracking information from our use of 'cookies' and other aggregate activity logging. VacationRentalPros.com does not collect personally identifying information from our users other than what is supplied to us on a voluntary basis.
A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and is stored on your computer's hard drive. Cookies help us to analyze web page flow, measure promotional effectiveness, and promote trust and safety. 'Cookies' are files placed on your hard drive that will assist us in providing our services. Cookies can also help us provide information that is targeted to your interests. You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, although in that case you may not be able to use certain features on the Site.
To open a PayPal account, users must provide name, address, phone number and email address. In order to make payments through Pay Pal, you must provide a credit card, debit card, or bank account information; bank account information is required to make payments totaling more than $1,000. Two security questions are also posed to PayPal users to protect you against credit card and checking account fraud, and to contact you should the need arise to administer your account.
In using PayPal on our Site, PayPal verifies financial information with third parties in order to protect all of its customers. In the course of such verification, PayPal receives personally identifiable information about you from such services. In particular, if you register a credit card or debit card with PayPal, PayPal will use card authorization and fraud screening services to verify that your card information and address matches the information that you supplied to PayPal, and that the card has not been reported as lost or stolen.
All personal information provided to PayPal can be reviewed and accessed by their users at any time by logging into your account on the PayPal website, and changing your preferences in the Profile page of the 'My Account' tab. You can also close your PayPal account at anytime. For more details on your PayPal account, please visit their website at www.paypal.com .
