In deciding whether or not to join such lists, please note that they are only used for Gurney's purposes or in joint promotions with a Gurney's partner. We do not sell, rent or share any of your personal information with any other party including any third-party joint promotions, or use it for unapproved commercial purposes.

Permission for Use

Gurney's may collect and use personal information that you submit at the Site in any manner that is consistent with uses stated in this Privacy Policy or disclosed elsewhere at the Site at the point you submit such personal information. At the time you submit personal information, the intended use of the information will be apparent in the context in which you submit it. By submitting personal information on the site, you are consenting to any use that is consistent with uses stated in this Privacy Policy or disclosed elsewhere on the site at the point you submit such personal information. Such consent will be presumed by Gurney's unless you state otherwise at the time you submit the personal information. Please do not request any such communications on behalf of an individual or company if you are not authorized to make the request.

Protecting Your Information: Security

We want you to feel confident about using the Site for your travel, so we have implemented a security program to keep information that is stored in our systems protected from unauthorized access. Our Site is hosted in a secure environment. The Site servers/systems are configured with data encryption technologies and industry-standard firewalls. When you enter personal information, your data is protected by Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to ensure safe transmission.

Withdrawing Consent to Use or Changing your Personal Information

If, after permitting use of your personal information, you later decide that you no longer want Gurney's to include you on its mailing list or otherwise contact you or use your personal information in the manner disclosed in this Privacy Policy or on the site, simply tell us by sending an e-mail to info@gurneysinn.com or by clicking on the "Unsubscribe" button at the bottom of our email communication to you.

Use of Aggregated Information

We are constantly improving the Site and adding new features and services. We monitor aggregated data regarding use of the Site for marketing purposes and to study, improve and promote use of the Site. In connection with such purposes, Gurney's may share aggregated data with third parties collectively and in an anonymous way. Disclosure of aggregated data does not reveal personal information about individual Site users.

Exceptions to the Privacy Policy

Gurney’s Montauk Resort & Seawater Spa has two exceptions to these limits on use of personal information:

  1. Gurney's may monitor and, when we believe in good faith that disclosure is required, disclose information to protect the security, property, assets and/or rights of Gurney's from unauthorized use, or misuse, of the Site or anything found at the Site.
  2. Gurney's may disclose information when required by law; however, only to the extent necessary and in a manner that seeks to maintain the privacy of the individual.

Use of Cookies

To enable features at the Site, Gurney's may assign one or more "cookies" to your Internet browser. Cookies, among other things, speed navigation through our Site, keep track of information so that you do not have to re-enter it each time you visit our Site, and may provide you with customized content. A cookie is an Internet mechanism composed of a small text file containing a unique identification number that permits a web server to send small pieces of information or text means of your browser and place them on your computer's hard drive for storage. This text lets the web server know if you have previously visited the web page. Cookies by themselves cannot be used to find out the identity of any user.

We use cookies to collect and maintain aggregate information about Site use. While in the process of browsing our site, you supply non-personal information -- what type of destination you're exploring, etc. We use this aggregated data only as explained in this Privacy Policy. We do not connect aggregated data to any name, address, or other identifying information.

You may occasionally receive cookies from unaffiliated companies or organizations, to the extent they place advertising on our Site or are linked to the Site. These third-party cookies may collect information about you when you "click" on their advertising or content or link. This practice is standard in the Internet industry. Because of the way in which the Internet operates, we cannot control collection of this information by these third parties, and these cookies are not subject to this Privacy Policy.

Children's Privacy & Parental Consent

This Site is not designed or intended for anyone under age 18, and minors are expressly requested by Gurney's not to use this site or submit personal information. Our privacy policy prohibits the acceptance of users who are under the age of 18. Should Gurney's inadvertently acquire personal information or other data from users under the age of 18, Gurney's will not knowingly provide this data to any third party for any purpose whatsoever.

Links Provided To Other Sites

Gurney's may provide links to a number of other web sites that we believe might offer you useful information and services. However, those sites may not follow the same privacy policies as Gurney's. Gurney's therefore is not responsible for the privacy policies or the actions of any third parties including without limitation, any website owners whose sites may be reached through this Site. Please contact the relevant parties controlling these sites or access their on-line privacy policies before submitting any personal information.

Your Consent to This Privacy Policy

Use of the Site signifies your consent, as well as the consent of the company for whom you use the Site and whose information you submit (if any), to this online Privacy Policy, including the collection and use of information by Gurney's, as described in this statement, and also signifies agreement to the terms of use for the Site.

Policy Modifications & Contacting Gurney's

Gurney's reserves the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time; notice of changes will be published on this page. Changes will always be prospective, not retroactive. Should the Site make any material changes to the Privacy Policy that substantially alter the use of your personal information, Site shall notify you of such change through an email if you have supplied your email address to Site. In that email, you will be afforded an explicit opportunity to remove your Personal Information from Site. If you have questions about our policies, please contact info@gurneysinn.com.
