In response, we may ask for information such as your name and postal address.

All forms will allow you to choose not to participate in Inns by the Sea lists and future online marketing. In deciding whether or not to join such lists, please note that they are only used for Inns by the Sea purposes or in joint promotions with a Inns by the Sea partner. We do not sell, rent or share any of your personal information with any other party including any third-party joint promoters, nor use it for unapproved commercial purposes.

Permission for Use
If you decide to make an online reservation at the Site, you will be linked to reservation interface and third party booking engine ("Booking Engine Vendor"). While it appears to be part of our site, the reservation functionality is in fact provided by this third party Booking Engine Vendor and is governed by its privacy practices. We understand that security remains the primary concern of online consumers and have chosen the Booking Engine Vendor carefully. The Booking Engine Vendor has implemented comprehensive security programs, and all information sent to the site, if in an SSL session, is encrypted, protecting against disclosure to third parties.
Protecting Your Information
We would like our Site visitors to feel confident about using the Site to plan and purchase their accommodations, so Inns by the Sea is committed to protecting the information we collect. Inns by the Sea has implemented a security program to keep information that is stored in our systems protected from unauthorized access.
