Security of Information Collection

IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information.

Finally, we may transfer information collected from Users in connection with a sale of Hot Stays’ business. Note that any information you elect to submit to Hot Stays via the web WILL NOT be sold to any other corporation or entity.
