Language and Luxury Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us and we will never misuse or sell your data to anyone. We ensure any data we hold is stored securely and we use cookies and other similar technologies to improve your experience on our website.

If you see an undefined term in this Privacy Policy, it has the same definition as outlined in our Terms of Service. When this policy mentions “Language and Luxury,” “we,” “us,” or “our,” it refers to the Language and Luxury company that is responsible for your information under this Privacy Policy (the “Data Controller”).

To help facilitate bookings, we may share your information with others as follows. When you as a Client submit a booking request, certain information about you is shared with the Accommodations, including your full name, the full name of any additional guests, your cancellation history, and other information you agree to share. When your booking is confirmed, we will disclose additional information to assist with coordinating the trip, like your phone number.

  • Service Providers.

We use a variety of third party service providers to help us provide services related to the Language and Luxury Services. For example, service providers may help us: (i) verify or authenticate your identification, (ii) check information against public databases, (iii) assist us with background checks, fraud prevention, and risk assessment, or (iv) provide customer service, advertising, or payments services. These providers have limited access to your information to perform these tasks on our behalf, and are contractually obligated to use it consistent with this Privacy Policy.

  • Language and Luxury Payments.

Language and Luxury may share your personal information to: (i) provide the payment services, (ii) facilitate your use of the Language and Luxury Services, and (iii) jointly market products or services to you with other financial third parties with whom Language and Luxury has a formal agreement. You can unsubscribe or opt-out from receiving such marketing communications by emailing us.

  • Safety and Compliance with Law.

Language and Luxury may disclose your information to courts, law enforcement or governmental authorities, or authorized third parties, if and to the extent we are required to do so by law or if such disclosure is reasonably necessary: (i) to comply with legal process and to respond to claims asserted against Language and Luxury, (ii) to respond to verified requests relating to a criminal investigation or alleged or suspected illegal activity or any other activity that may expose us, you, or any other of our Clients to legal liability, (iii) to enforce and administer our Terms of Service or other agreements with Clients, (iv) for fraud investigation and prevention, risk assessment, customer support, product development and debugging purposes, or (v) to protect the rights, property or personal safety of Language and Luxury, its employees, its Clients, or Clients of the public.

We will attempt to notify Clients about these requests unless: (i) providing notice is prohibited by the legal process itself, by court order we receive, or by applicable law, or (ii) we believe that providing notice would be futile, ineffective, create a risk of injury or bodily harm to an individual or group, or create or increase a risk of fraud upon Language and Luxury’s property, its Clients and the Services (collectively, “Risk Scenarios”). In instances where we comply with legal requests without notice for these reasons, we will attempt to notify that Client about the request after the fact if we determine in good faith that we are no longer legally prohibited from doing so and that no Risk Scenarios apply.

  • Business Transfers.

If Language and Luxury undertakes or is involved in any merger, acquisition, reorganization, sale of assets, bankruptcy, or insolvency event, then we may sell, transfer or share some or all of our assets, including your information. In this event, we will notify you before your personal information is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

  • Aggregated Data.

We may also share aggregated information (information about our Clients that we combine together so that it no longer identifies or references an individual Client) and non-personally identifiable information for industry and market analysis, demographic profiling, marketing and advertising, and other business purposes.

 

  1. THIRD PARTY PARTNERS & INTEGRATIONS

The Language and Luxury Services may contain links to third party websites or services, such as third party integrations, co-branded services, or third party-branded services (“Third Party Partners”). Language and Luxury doesn’t own or control these Third Party Partners and when you interact with them, you may be providing information directly to the Third Party Partner, Language and Luxury, or both. These Third Party Partners will have their own rules about the collection, use, and disclosure of information. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of the other websites you visit.

  1. OPERATING GLOBALLY

As described in this Privacy Policy, we may sometimes share your information with third parties. When you use the Language and Luxury Services, you authorize us to transfer, store, and process your information in the United States and possibly other countries. Laws in these countries may differ from the laws applicable to the place where you live. By using the Language and Luxury Services, you consent to transferring your data to these countries. For California and Vermont residents, Language and Luxury Payments will not share information it collects about you with their affiliates or third parties (both financial and non-financial), except as required or permitted by your state’s law.

  1. SECURITY

We are continuously implementing and updating administrative, technical, and physical security measures to help protect your information against unauthorized access, loss, destruction, or alteration. However, the Internet is not a 100% secure environment so we can’t guarantee the security of the transmission or storage of your information.

  1. CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY

Language and Luxury reserves the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time in accordance with this provision. If we make changes to this Privacy Policy, we will post the revised Privacy Policy on the Language and Luxury Services.
