Amerirent in Dominican Republic is committed to your right to privacy on the Internet.

At Amerirent ("Roma, S.R.L.") we respect the privacy of our customers. We have implemented this privacy policy to explain to you how we use and protect personal information we may gather from you by means of this Web Site ("Privacy Policy"). By using our Web Site, you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your information, as described in this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy, please do not use our Web Site.

WHAT INFORMATION IS COLLECTED

PERSONAL INFORMATION

As a general rule, you will not be required to provide personally identifiable information as a condition of browsing this website. However, we may collect personal information from you in certain pages of our website when you submit it to us in connection with one or more specific purposes, which are described below under "How Collected Information Is Used." When such information is gathered, we will collect the minimum amount of data necessary to enable transactions with you, to enhance this website and your customer experience and to make future visits to this website more fluid and more personalized. The personal data we may collect include but is not limited to your:

  • name
  • address
  • telephone numbers
  • e-mail address
  • driver's license number and expiration date
  • date of birth
  • credit card number
  • user name and password
  • other information provided by you

Failing to provide requested information will not hinder your ability to surf this website, but it may prevent you from being able to complete certain transactions or receive a certain service.

We may combine the information that you submit with information related to your transactions, such as car rental location and vehicle model, as well as with information we receive about you from credit reporting companies and other third parties.

NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION

As part of the standard operation of this website, certain non-personal, anonymous information may be automatically provided to our Web servers by your computer. For each visitor to our website, our Web server automatically recognizes the visitor’s domain name or IP address (where possible), but not the visitor’s e-mail address. An IP address is a sequence of numbers assigned to your computer when you connect to the Internet. As part of the protocol of the Internet, Web servers can usually identify your computer by its IP address. In addition, we may collect your browser type and operating system information. Except as otherwise explained in this policy, we may combine the non-personal information we collect from you (as described above and as described below, under "Cookies & Pixel Tracking") with your personal information.

COOKIES & PIXEL TRACKING

Cookies are short strings of text sent from a Web server to a Web browser when the browser accesses our website. Meaning, when the browser requests a page from the Web server that originally sent it a cookie, the browser sends a copy of the cookie back to that Web server. A cookie typically contains, among other items, the name of the cookie, a unique identification number, an expiration date and domain name. Cookies may be "session-only" or "persistent." Persistent cookies last for more than one visit and are typically used to allow a visitor to our website to personalize his/her experience.

We may use cookies to analyze the traffic on our website (such as total visitors and pages viewed), to personalize features and content, to save you the trouble of re-entering your name or other info when you come back to our website and to make improvements based on the data we collect. We do not save passwords or other sensitive information in cookies. The use of cookies has become a standard in the Internet industry, especially at Web Sites that provide any kind of personalized experience.
We may also use pixel tags (also known as "clear gifs," "Web beacons" or "1-by-1gifs") on our website and in our advertisements. Pixel tags consist of a few lines of coding and are not visible to the site user. Pixel tags help us analyze our visitors’ behavior on our website with respect to our advertisements. We may work with our Affiliates and our service providers to help us track, collect and analyze this data. Pixel tags may be used to collect a variety of information about your visit to our website, including the pages you view, the features you use, the links you click and other actions you take, all of which may be combined with other information we have collected from you. We use this to provide personalized and relevant website content, to measure the effectiveness of our marketing and advertisements, to enhance the helpfulness of our website, to compile aggregate usage statistics, to determine if any errors are being encountered on the website and for other internal purposes.

We work with a service provider that helps us to optimize our search engine marketing. It does this by associating pixel tags with the terms that you use when surfing online for a rental car (for example, SUV or a certain destination). If you select Amerirent from among your search results, our service provider will analyze your search terms to present you with the most relevant landing page (for example, SUVs available in Dominican Republic). Our service provider does not tie the search terms or any other information to your personal information; it may tie the search term information to your IP address.

Cookies may also be placed by third parties during your visit to the website. Our Affiliates and business partners (including our advertisers) may use these cookies in connection with their use of pixel tags for online preference marketing purposes or otherwise. We don’t control those cookies. The use of cookies by advertisers has become standard practice in the Internet industry today.

We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads on our behalf across the Internet. These companies employ cookie and pixel tag technology to measure and improve the effectiveness of ads for users. To do so, these companies may use anonymous info about your unique visit to the website. This information can include: date/time of banner ad shown, your cookie and the first three octets of your IP address. These companies do not collect personally identifiable information. This anonymous information can also be used for online preference marketing purposes.

HOW COLLECTED INFORMATION IS USED

We use the information we collect for the following purposes:

  • To assist you with reserving, renting, and purchasing cars.
  • To provide information concerning car sales, car renting and fleet services.
  • To conduct other transactions that you request.
  • To service your account with us, respond to your questions and contact you when needed.
  • To provide you with discounts, coupons, offers and other promotions and opportunities and services that may be of interest to you.
  • To assist us in providing better vehicles and services (for example, we may contact you by telephone, mail or email to assist us in evaluating the performance of our employees, to assess the quality of the cars and service received and to help us improve our website, facilities and services).
  • To compile statistics and analysis about our customers’ use of our website, products and services, which statistics are only used internally to enable us to provide better customer service, cars, minivans and SUV to you.
  • To learn more about our website traffic patterns in order to improve the functionality and features of our site.
  • To help us to operate, maintain and improve our systems and website.

Data collected online may also be combined or merged with data you provide to us by means other than through this site as part of the standard business operations of Amerirent and its Affiliates; provided, however, this Privacy Policy applies only to data collected on-line. If the same information about you is gathered from this Web Site and also from other sources with different privacy policies, Amerirent may elect, in its sole discretion, to treat such information in accordance with the privacy policy that least restricts our use and disclosure of such information.

We attempt to retain information we collect for commercially reasonable periods or in accordance with specific policies or as required by law. Information collected for a specified purpose will only be used for that purpose and, after a reasonable period of time, will no longer be actively stored when that purpose has been fulfilled. Inactive data may, however, continue to be used for statistical, marketing, archiving, and other analytical purposes.

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT, UNLESS PROHIBITED BY LAW, YOUR USE AND/OR CONTINUED USE OF THIS WEB SITE SIGNIFIES YOUR EXPRESS CONSENT THAT INFORMATION MAY BE TRANSFERRED TO OR STORED ON SERVERS AND PROCESSED OUTSIDE THE COUNTRY OF YOUR RESIDENCE, INCLUDING, THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC, UNITED STATES, THE UNITED KINGDOM, IRELAND, GERMANY, AND CANADA. PLEASE ALSO BE AWARE THAT THE PRIVACY LAWS OF THE UNITED STATES OR OTHER COUNTRIES WHERE INFORMATION MAY BE STORED MAY NOT BE AS COMPREHENSIVE OR OFFER AS MUCH PROTECTION AS THE LAWS OF OTHER COUNTRIES.

WITH WHOM THE INFORMATION MAY BE SHARED

We may disclose the information we collect from and about you: (1) when we have reason to believe that such disclosure is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property, customers or other users of our website, or anyone else who could be harmed by such activities; (2) to respond to judicial process and provide information to law enforcement or in connection with an investigation on matters related to public safety as required by law; and (3) to our Affiliates, business partners and/or third parties, subject to confidentiality agreements as appropriate, for administrative, technical support or other business purposes as necessary to facilitate our transactions with you, analyze our data or to maintain and improve our services. We may disclose your personal information to third-party service providers located in Dominican Republic, Canada or the U.S. These service providers are contractually required to maintain the confidentiality and security of your information. However, your information may be accessible to Dominican Republic authorities in accordance with Dominican law or U.S. law.

Amerirent or its Affiliates may sell or buy other businesses or entities. In such transactions, personal information may be one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the event that Amerirent or substantially all of its assets are acquired, your personal information may be one of the transferred assets.

We may also share aggregated information about our customers with our advertisers and marketing partners. This information does not include any personally identifiable information.

Except as explained above, we will not share any of your personal information with any third party, unless we have received your express permission to do so.

LINKED SITES
This website may contain links to other website which may have privacy policies that differ from our own. We are not responsible for the activities and practices that take place on those websites. Accordingly, we recommend that you review the privacy policy posted on any website that you may access through this website.

CHILDREN’S PRIVACY
This website is not directed to, and Amerirent does not knowingly collect personal information from, children under the age of 13.

CORRECTING OR CHANGING YOUR INFORMATION/CONTACTING AMERIRENT
We are very concerned about the accuracy and completeness of the information we collect and make efforts we deem appropriate to ensure that the information we have is accurate and up-to-date. If you wish to review, amend, correct, update or delete personally identifiable information we have collected about you online, or if you wish to opt out of future uses of your information, please feel free to contact us.

SECURITY PROCEDURES
We are very concerned with the security of your personally identifiable information and try to provide secure transmission of your information from your PC to our servers. For certain transactions on certain of our Web Sites, we may use Secured Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to protect the transfer of information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be absolutely safe. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information transmitted online. Once we receive your information, we take steps that we believe are reasonably appropriate to protect its security, both internally and from outsiders, from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction, and to ensure the integrity of the data we collect. We use a combination of technological, physical, administrative and policy methods as well as organizational controls and non-disclosure or confidentiality agreements as we deem appropriate to protect this data.

If you have a user name and password for any of the features on our website, you have the responsibility of keeping your password secret. You should not reveal your password to anyone. We will not ask you in an unsolicited telephone call or e-mail for your password. In addition, you should take reasonable precautions when using a computer that is not your own or in a public setting.

CHANGES IN TERMS
We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. When we do, we will change the Effective Date located at the beginning of this Privacy Policy. If we change this Privacy Policy in a material way, we will provide appropriate online notice to you.
