Information Collection and Use
France Appartements SA under the web site rentapart.com or france-appartements.com
is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not
sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from
what is disclosed in this statement.
We request information from the user during our booking process. Here
a user must provide contact information (like name and address) and credit
card information (credit card number, expiration date). This information
is used for billing purposes and to fill customer's orders. If we have
trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to get in
touch with the user.
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's
movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.
IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
We will share aggregated demographic information with our partners and
advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify
any individual person.
We do not use an outside shipping company to ship orders and we do not
use a credit card processing company to bill users for our services. All
credit card process are manually made by our staff in Paris.
We can partner with another party to provide specific services such as
airport transfer. When the user signs up for these services, we will share
names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party
to provide these services. These parties are not allowed to use personally
identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.
This web site may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that we,
France Appartements rentapart.com, are not responsible for the privacy
practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when
they leave our site and to read the privacy statement of each and every
web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy
statement applies solely to information collected by this web site.
If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter, we ask for contact information
with your email address and / or postal address.
This web site takes every precaution to protect our users' information.
When users submit sensitive information via the web site, your information
is protected both online and off-line. When our registration/order form
asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number),
that information is encrypted and is protected using the best encryption
systems supported by WWW browsers - SSL. While on a secure page, such
as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as
Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer changes to indicate
a secure document. In addition to using SSL encryption to protect sensitive
information as you send it to us, we also do everything in our power to
protect user-information offline. Access to all of our users' information,
not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our
offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific
job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative)
are granted access to personally identifiable information. All employees
are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. If you have
any questions about the security at our web site, you can send an email
We can send all new members a welcoming email to verify password and username.
Established members will occasionally receive information on products,
services, special deals, and a newsletter. Out of respect for the privacy
of our users we present the option to not receive these types of communications.

Correction/Updating Personal Information
If a user's personally identifiable information changes (such as your
address), or if a user no longer desires our service, we will endeavor
to provide a way to correct, update or remove that user's personal data
provided to us. This can usually be done at the contact page or by emailing
our Customer Support.
Our users are given the opportunity to 'opt-out' of having their information
used for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where
we ask for the information. For example, our order form has an 'opt-out'
mechanism so users who rent a property from us, but don't want any marketing
material, can keep their email address off of our lists. Users who no
longer wish to receive our newsletter or promotional materials from our
partners may opt-out of receiving these communications by replying to
unsubscribe in the subject line in the email or email us at email@example.com.
Users of our site are always notified when their information is being
collected by any outside parties. We do this so our users can make an
informed choice as to whether they should proceed with services that require
an outside party, or not.
Notification of Changes

any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner
different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify
