HOW LUSSOSTAY COLLECTS AND USES INFORMATION
We collect your personal information through the following methods:
When you register with us through the Services to make a booking or when you wish to contact another user, we will ask you for personal information that can be used to contact or identify you. Personal information includes, but is not limited to, your name, phone number, email address, social security number (SSN), home postal address and other location data, credit card number, and billing information. We also collect the other information that you provide as part of registration and the administration and personalization of your LussoStay account profile (e.g., without limitation, zip code (on its own), and individual preferences or demographic information). Some personal information is required, like your name and email address, and other personal information is optional, like your date of birth. We reserve the right to require address confirmation for rentals included in our Services. We collect personal information in connection with your registration to join the Services. You can register to join via the Services by completing the required forms. By providing your email address, you consent to receive promotional emails from us. We will use your email address to send you information about our products, services, and promotions. You can unsubscribe at any time by clicking the ‘unsubscribe’ link at the bottom of any email we send you. Your email address will not be shared with any third parties.
We also obtain data from third parties, including data brokers who provide supplemental data like demographics, and third-party service providers, such as Facebook, if you register with LussoStay by logging into online accounts you may have with such providers (each such account, a “Third Party Account”). For example, as part of the functionality of the Service, you may link your LussoStay Account with Third-Party Accounts, by either: (i) providing your Third Party Account login information to LussoStay through the Services; or (ii) allowing LussoStay to access your Third-Party Account, as is permitted under the applicable terms and conditions that govern your use of each Third-Party Account. Depending on the Third-Party Accounts you choose and subject to the privacy settings that you have set in such Third-Party Accounts, you understand that by granting us access to the Third Party Accounts, we will access, make available, and store (if applicable and as permitted by the third party and authorized by you) the information in your Third-Party Accounts so that it is available on and through your LussoStay Account on the Services. If there is information about your ‘friends” or people with whom you are associated in your Third-Party Account, the information we obtain about those “friends” or people with whom you are associated, may also depend on the privacy settings you and such people have with the applicable third party. You should always review and, if necessary, adjust your privacy settings on third-party services before linking or connecting them to the Services.
When you visit the Services, whether as a registered or a non-registered user just browsing, our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website (“Log Data”). This Log Data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type or the webpage you were visiting before you came to our Services, pages of our Services that you visit, the time spent on those pages, the information you search for on our Services, access times and dates, browser type, referring/exit pages and URLs, number of clicks and how you interact with links within the Services, and other statistics. We use this information to monitor and analyze the use and technical administration of the Services, to increase our Service’s functionality and user-friendliness, and to better tailor our Services to our users’ needs. We also use this information to verify that users of the Services meet the criteria required to process their requests. We do not associate Log Data with other personal information, though we may aggregate, analyze and evaluate such information.
Our Services may contain electronic images known as Web beacons (sometimes called pixel tags or clear gifs) and are used along with cookies to compile aggregated statistics to analyze how our Services are used and may be used in some of our emails to let us know which emails and links have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of our customer communications and marketing campaigns. In most cases, you can disable the ability of Web beacons to capture information by blocking cookies.
When you access or use the Services via a mobile device, LussoStay may access, collect, monitor and remotely store one or more “device identifiers,” such as a universally unique identifier (UUID) on your device. Device identifiers are small data files or similar data structures stored on or associated with your device that uniquely identify your device. A device identifier may consist of data stored in connection with the device hardware, operating system, or other software, or data sent to the device by LussoStay. A device identifier may convey information to LussoStay about how you browse and use the Services. A device identifier may remain persistently on your device to enhance your navigation within the Services. Some features of the Services may not function properly if the use or availability of device identifiers is impaired or disabled.
Advertising identifiers are unique strings associated with your mobile device that is provided by the operating system. Advertising identifiers may be modified or disabled by users in the device operating system’s settings.
When you access or use the Services, LussoStay may access, collect, monitor and remotely store “location data,” which may include GPS coordinates (such as latitude and/or longitude) or similar information regarding the location of your device. Location data may convey information to LussoStay about how you browse and use the Services, where you travel, and the duration of your travel. Some features of the Services, particularly location-based services, may not function properly if the use or availability of location data is impaired or disabled.
Email, Phone, SMS, or Chat Via a LussoStay Account
As part of the Services, LussoStay users may communicate with us via email, phone, SMS or chat via the “Inquire” feature on the sites in which we advertise our listings (e.g., VRBO). Where users have selected the option of adding one or more email addresses to an online form, the message they create in the corresponding template will be sent to LussoStay from those email addresses via the advertising sites. Via the “Inquire” feature of the advertising sites, you may also speak with LussoStay representatives over the phone or initiate SMS or chat. These phone numbers will only be used by LussoStay to fulfill the Services.
Signals from Devices on the Rented Property
LussoStay may also collect information when you provide data through tablets, video doorbells, digital locks, and audio monitoring systems located in the rented properties. We may capture data such as maintenance and other guest requests, sound levels inside the property (but not any voices, conversations, or communications). And, outside the property, audio, video, and other information about who and when people approach, enter, and leave the rented property. Such information will be used to respond to guest requests, monitor disturbances at the property and in the community, and keep owners and guests safe.
Identity theft and the practice currently known as “phishing” are of great concern to LussoStay. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is a top priority. We do not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information, your LussoStay Account ID, login password, or national identification numbers in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication. Further, LussoStay will not, and the owners of listed properties are not permitted to, request money orders, cashier’s checks, online bank transfers, or cash outside of the LussoStay Services. Please be aware and report any suspicious activity to LussoStay. For more information about phishing, visit the Federal Trade Commission’s website at https://www.ftc.gov.
In addition to the uses described above, we use your personal information to provide and improve our Services, facilitate the listing and booking of rental properties and completing your transactions, administer your use of the Services and address your inquiries, conduct statistical or other analysis, and to enable users to enjoy and easily navigate the Services. We also use your personal information to contact you with LussoStay newsletters, marketing or promotional materials, information related to your use of the Services, and other information that may be of interest to you. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive such communications from us, please follow the unsubscribe instructions provided in any of the communications or update your “Notifications” information within the Services (see “Your Rights Over Your Information” below).
LussoStay may use the information LussoStay collects or receives to communicate directly with you, such as sending you SMS and emails containing newsletters, promotions, and special offers. LussoStay may also use the information to send you service-related notices (such as account verification, services reminders and status updates, and technical and security notices).

LussoStay may share information about you with its affiliates, users of the Services, and business associates and service providers that perform services on LussoStay’s behalf in connection with the Services.

We also may share your personal information with third parties for industry analysis, demographic profiling, and other purposes, provided that such information has been de-identified or aggregated with the information from other customers or users in a manner that does not allow such information to be separated from the aggregate information and identified as originating from you.
We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Services, to provide the Services on our behalf, to perform other related services (e.g., without limitation, maintenance services, database management, web analytics, fraud detection services relating to the activity of LussoStay Users and improvement of the Services features) or to assist us in analyzing how our Services and Applications are used. These third parties may have access to your personal information; if they do, this access is only so that they may perform these tasks on our behalf and they are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose. We may also provide personal information to our business partners or other trusted entities to provide you with information on goods or services we believe will be of interest to you. You can, at any time, opt-out of receiving such communications.
