If you do not have an account, we will verify your request depending on the nature of the request. If you request to know the categories of information, we will request that you provide two pieces of information that match our records, which may vary depending on the information we have on file. If you request to know specific pieces of information, we will require additional verification to match three pieces of information on file, as well as a signed declaration.

In order to ensure protection of your information from fraudulent requests, we require you provide us with additional information to verify your identity should you wish to access or delete your data. For your protection, in the event the requisite verification is not satisfied, we may deny the request for access to your account data or to delete your account.
Protecting Your Information
We make every effort to ensure that any data that we store about you is kept behind a secure firewall and is not accessible to the public in any way. Any sensitive information (such as credit card number) that we collect from you is encrypted/tokenized. We protect user data offline as well by restricting access to information to only those employees (for example, a Customer Care representative) who need the information to perform a specific job.
All employees are kept up to date on our security and privacy practices and are aware of the importance of keeping customer data secure and safe at all times. We also outsource certain of our data processing operations to third parties as discussed below, and we have agreements with those service providers that require them to maintain security over your information.
Although we use our best efforts to protect the security of your information and our system, and we have agreements in place with our processors requiring them to do the same, no transmission via the internet or storage of data can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result of this and other factors beyond our control, we cannot guarantee the security of the information that you transmit to or through our Site. Therefore, you assume that risk by using the Site.
Meadowood makes every effort to ensure that the information provided by you on this Site or at the Resort is only used to process your reservation, provide you with services, run our business, and to send you offers and other general communications about Meadowood. We may also use this information to send you correspondence regarding new features, services and special offers from us and/or our Affiliates that we think you’ll find valuable. This information is harvested from a secure area and encrypted for our customers’ protection. We will not sell or rent this information to others.
If you have any questions about the security of our Site, please feel free to contact us at email@example.com.
Any information that you voluntarily post on public-facing features (e.g., comments, reviews, etc.) of our site becomes available to other Users. You can manage your posts through the original platform it was published. If you remove information that you posted on the site, copies may remain viewable in cached and archived pages of the site, or if other Users or third parties have copied or saved that information.
We do not sell personal information, including that of minors under 16 years of age. The Site and Meadowood products and services are not directed at children under the age of 16. Meadowood does not allow anyone under the age of 16 to register for the Site or at the Resort, and we do not knowingly collect or solicit any information from anyone under the age of 16. If you provide us with information about a minor under the age of 16, you are consenting to our use of that information on their behalf. If we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 16 without parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we have any information from or about your child under 16 to which you have not consented, please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 877-963-3646 x287.
