HOW INFORMATION IS COLLECTED
NI collects information about users by voluntary submission, IP addresses and cookies. No registration is required to enter our Web Sites.
When users elect to make online reservations or subscribe to newsletters via our email list, users are required to supply certain personal information during the reservation and/or subscription process. Information collected through these forms may be used by NI and/or its managed Hotels to improve the content of our Web Sites, gather demographic information about our users in general, for audits and to perform statistical analysis of user behavior in order to measure interest in the various areas of our Web Sites.
NI will not disclose, share, sell or divulge any personal information, such as address, email, telephone and fax numbers, to third parties unless we have informed you, been authorized by you or are required to do so by law. NI will maintain this information in accordance with our strict security and confidentiality standards.
NI feels strongly about protecting the privacy of children. No information should be submitted to NI by users under the age 18. Children under the age 18 may not make online reservations or register for subscriptions or access those sections of our Web Sites that require registration.
When visitors to our Web Sites join a mailing list, we log (record) the IP address, date and time of the “opt-in” subscription request. To prevent unwanted subscriptions, an email will be sent to the requesting party asking them to confirm the subscription by clicking on the link provided. If the subscription is not confirmed, the email address will not be added to our list.
NI and its managed Hotels may periodically send out email newsletters and other notifications to our users about new services, products or other news using email addresses provided during online reservation, email list subscription or otherwise. Each email you receive from us will contain an “opt-out” list removal link. To have your email address removed from our list, simply click on the link provided in the email and your address will be removed automatically from our system.
From time-to-time NI may send guest satisfaction surveys via email to list subscribers, or guests who have stayed at one of its Hotels. These emails will only contain information specifically related to its Hotels. Participation is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving our Web Sites and/or the services at NI managed Hotels.
From time-to-time NI may send promotional emails to list subscribers and/or guests who have stayed at NI managed Hotels that specifically relates to our Hotels and Web Sites including special rate offers, packages and discounts.
An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you surf the Internet. When you request pages from our Web Sites, the web server automatically logs your IP address, but not your email address. NI and its managed Hotels may use the log for various purposes, including systems administration.
NI employs an agency and a web developer to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include sending emails, removing repetitive information form customer lists, analyzing data, and providing marketing assistance. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
Our Web Sites may contain links to other Web Sites. NI and its managed Hotels are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web Sites. Inclusion of links to such Web Sites does not imply any endorsement of the material on such Web Sites by NI or its managed Hotels.

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
