The terms “we,” “us,” and “our” refer to The Dallas Convention & Visitors Bureau d/b/a VisitDallas.
The terms “you” and “your” refers to you as a user of our Site or Services.
In any case where this Policy provides that we may affirmatively make a notification to you by email, such email will be deemed to be the primary email address associated with any account you have with us or that you have provided to us.
We have implemented measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our Site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to our Site. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Site.
For your security, our credit card processing vendor encrypts sensitive information (such as credit card number) on our order forms using secure socket layer technology (SSL). In order for SSL to work, you must have a browser that supports SSL technology.
It should be noted that information you choose to post to the Site, e-mails, and other information you send to us, except that which you send us on a secure page, is not encrypted and such transmissions cannot be considered a secure means of transmitting information.
You should be aware of the limitations of security, authentication, encryption, and privacy measures used in connection with the Internet and that any information you transmit through the Site or in connection with the Service may be damaged, corrupted, "sniffed" and/or accessed by another person without your permission.
