It is part of the KSL Resort's Mission Statement that at all of the resorts of KSL Resorts, we strive to create "Customers for Life." One of the ways that we work towards this goal is by respecting your privacy as you explore the unique websites of our resorts, in addition to KSLResorts.com. This Privacy Statement applies to information collected by KSL Resorts and our resorts (collectively, "we" or "KSL Resorts") whether online through KSLResorts.com and the websites of our resorts (the "KSL Websites"), in person when you provide information to our resorts, or from third parties to whom you have provided information. The purpose of this Privacy Statement is to inform you about the types of information we gather about you when you visit the KSL Websites or our resorts, information we may receive from third parties or affiliates, how we may use that information, whether we disclose that information to anyone and the choices you have regarding of our use, and your ability to correct, the information.
This policy does not apply to other websites which are linked to any of the KSL Websites. Please also be aware that our promotional partners, advertisers, sponsors, tenants and concessionaires accessible through the KSL Websites or at our resorts and websites owned or controlled by independent third party owners of hotel, resort, or residence properties that may have the ability to book reservations through KSL Resorts, or websites not controlled or authorized by KSL Resorts may have their own privacy and data collection policies and practices. We are not responsible for any actions or policies of such third parties. You should check the applicable privacy policies of those third parties when providing personally identifiable information to them.
How We Collect and Use Information
We collect information in several ways by your use of the KSL Websites or your interaction with us at our resorts.

For example, we use "cookies" to (i) customize content specific to your interests, (ii) ensure that you do not see the same advertisement repeatedly and (iii) store your password so you do not have to re-enter it each time you use the KSL Websites.
A "pixel tag" is a clear (transparent) image placed on a web page to collect information about the page view. KSL Resorts uses pixel tags to aggregate web traffic information, such as the number of unique visitors, the top paths through the site, entry pages and exit pages. KSL Resorts does not use pixel tags to collect any personal information such as your name, age, phone number, address or e-mail address from visitors and we do not maintain a database of individual browsing profiles.
