(Revised February 22, 2005)
The Policy applies only to users of this website and not to the Galileo reservation system database. The primary purpose of this site is to provide information to the public regarding Galileo and its affiliates.
How does Galileo collect information through this site?Voluntary submission We collect information by specifically requesting it from you. Generally this occurs when you register at a site or request information or a service.
Usage tracking/Use of Internet Protocol ("IP") AddressesAn IP address is a unique number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you're surfing the Internet so that your computer can be identified by the main computers, known as "Web servers," that "serve up" Web pages.
By showing how and when users use a site, cookies help us see which areas are popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates to the site are based on such data as total number of visitors and pages viewed. This information is most easily tracked with cookies. We use the information from cookies to provide services better tailored to our users' needs.
With whom does this site share my information?As a general rule, Galileo will not disclose any PII that you submit to us through this website in a manner that connects you with the information, except when we do so in the course of providing services to you or as requested by law enforcement officials. For example, if you participate in our rewards program known as Spark your PII may be sent to a third party service provider in order to process and transmit rewards requested by you.
How can you control the usage of information? In case you change your mind or some information changes (such as your zip code or e-mail address), we will try to provide a way to correct, update or remove the information that you give us. If a user wishes to update personal information or objects to any usage provided herein for any reason, he/she may contact: Jody Bober at (973) 496-7868.
In the event we make a change to this Policy, we will advise you by posting a new effective date for this Policy.
What happens when you link to a third party site?You should be aware that when you are on this site you could hyperlink or be directed to other sites that are beyond our control and/or outside our service. These other sites may include sites of advertisers, sponsors and partners that may use Galileo's and/or its affiliates' logo as part of a co-branding agreement. These other sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data, or solicit Information.
Galileo and its affiliates do not control such sites, and, therefore, are not responsible for their contents or the hyperlinks or advertising they choose to place on such sites. Galileo's and/or its affiliates' inclusion of hyperlinks to these sites do not imply any endorsement of the material on such sites or any association with their operators. Galileo's policy does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet, which is beyond Galileo's and its affiliates' control.
Please keep in mind that whenever you give out information online (for example, via message boards or chat) that information can be collected and used by people you don't know. While Galileo and its affiliates strive to protect their users' information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online, and you disclose such information at your own risk.
Is my information secure from others using the www.galileo.com site?The security of all information associated with users of this site is an important concern to us. We exercise care in providing secure transmission of your information from your computer to our servers. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your information, Galileo and its affiliates cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, Galileo uses industry standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your information, such as firewalls and secure socket layers. However, "perfect security" does not exist on the Internet.
