In order to use certain parts of The Tourism Roatan website, you may need to first complete a registration form to create a user name and/or password. During registration you may be required to give contact information. We may use this information to contact you about the services on our site in which you have expressed interest.
You have the option to provide demographic information (such as income range and gender) to us; we encourage you to submit this information so we can provide you a more personalized experience on our site.
Surveys or Contests
From time to time, we may provide you the opportunity to participate in surveys or contests on our site. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary. We use survey results to further improve this site and its content as well as to enhance our communications with you.
We may use third-party service providers to conduct surveys or contests. If we do, those companies will be prohibited from using our users' personally identifiable information for any other purpose than what has been identified above. We will not share the personally identifiable information you provide through a survey or contest with third parties unless we give you prior notice and a choice to opt out.

Based upon the personally identifiable information you provide us (i.e., your "profile"), we will send you a welcome e-mail to verify your enrollment when you subscribe to an electronic newsletter.

Information Sharing and Disclosure
Aggregate Information (non-personally identifiable)
At times, we share aggregated demographic information about our user base with our partners. This information does not identify individual users. We do not link aggregate user data with personally identifiable information in these cases.
Personally identifiable information
We do not share personally identifiable information (your "profile") with third parties, except insofar as that information is required to fulfill a service that you have requested.
We may use an outside company to fulfill specific requests, and a credit card processing company to bill you for products and services you purchase from us. These companies do not retain, share, store, or use personally identifiable information for any other purposes.
We use third parties to provide fulfillment and processing functions on our site. When you register for products and/or services, we may share information as necessary for the third party to provide those services.
These third parties are prohibited from using your personally identifiable information for any other purpose.
We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on Tourism Roatan. We further reserve the right to disclose or use your personally identifiable information for the purposes of collecting on debts owed in connection with the purchase of products or services on this website.
Website visits generate certain information that is automatically stored in log files, including Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
We use this information, which in itself does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users' movements around the site, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.
We may use both session ID cookies and/or persistent cookies. Both kinds are stored on the site visitor's hard drive.
We set a persistent cookie that stores your passwords on your hard drive. Persistent cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site.
If you reject cookies, you may still use our site, but your ability to use some areas of our site may be limited.
