The Resort strives to respect the privacy of all users of the Service. The Service does not correlate the user of this service with the sites visited. We do record the room number of the user for billing purposes. The record of a specific name associated with that room number is stored in a separate database to protect the privacy of the user. A log of all Service usage activity is maintained for system performance and maintenance purposes and system security requirements. At some locations we provide the ability for a Service user to print a document or web pages while using the Service. While we take reasonable measures to secure the printer, because it is a shared printer we cannot ensure others may not see a document you print. The Resort will only disclose usage information without your permission when required by law, or in good faith belief that such action is necessary to investigate or protect against harmful activities to the Resort’s guests, visitors, members, associates, employees or property (including this Service), or to others. If you should have any privacy related questions, concerns about these terms, or wish to report a violation of these terms please send an e-mail to [email protected] or via postal mail at: Pinehurst, LLC, P.O. Box 4000, Village of Pinehurst, NC 28374.
