Method of Collection of Information
MyKey does not collect personally identifiable information when you browse the MyKey website unless you voluntarily and knowingly provide such information. This means that we will not know your name, your email address, or any other personally identifiable information just because you browse the website unless you:
When we do need to collect personally identifiable information from you, we will ask you, your employer, your insurance agency, relocation company or travel agency to voluntarily supply us with the information we need. For example, if you would like to make a reservation at one of our properties, we may ask you for information such as name, address, telephone number, email address, credit card number and room preference to process your reservation. We may collect this information directly from you by telephone, fax, email, at the counter, upon completion of an application or enrollment form, or through your use of our website.
Information may also be collected as part of: (i) fulfilling reservation or information requests, (ii) registering to join MyKey as a supplier or key client, (iii) submitting a job application, (iv) submitting a credit application, (v) responding to communications from us or our affiliates (e.g., surveys, promotional offers, or reservation confirmations), or (vi) tracking general information such as an IP address or longitude and latitude as you visit our site to improve viewer site experiences. We endeavor to collect information only with your knowledge and with your permission when necessary.
Types Of Information
The types of personally identifiable information that we collect may include your name, home, work and email addresses, telephone and fax numbers, credit card information and other information necessary to fulfill special requests.
MyKey may also collect non-personally identifiable information about you, such as your use of our website, communication preferences, travel habits, aggregated data relative to your stays, and responses to promotional offers and surveys.
You may be offered the choice not to submit your personal information or to decide what communications you want to receive from us. However, doing so may cause certain transactions to become affected. For example, failure to provide your name will prevent the processing of reservations.

MyKey will never sell your information to third parties or allow its use in any manner except with the purpose to reasonably ensure and permit the business relationship that you wish to establish with MyKey.
MyKey may disclose your information to others with that purpose in the following ways:
