WE RESPECT THE PRIVACY OF EVERY INDIVIDUAL WHO VISITS THIS SITE
WHO IS COLLECTING YOUR INFORMATION
This Website contains links to other sites whose privacy policies may differ from those of Hard Rock, which we recommend you carefully review and consider. We cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of other websites even if you access them using links from our Website.
WHAT INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Personal Information from the Website is gathered in several ways: (1) indirectly, i.e., certain website information about you, such as domain name, browser type and page views, which is collected through our site's technology; (2) directly, when you voluntarily submit Personal Information, such as first and last names, addresses and email address(es) in connection with requests for proposals for weddings, meetings and other special events; and in connection with other various offers, marketing and promotional activities conducted on the Website; (3) directly, when you register to become a user of the Website; and (4) directly, when you make reservation on the Website through one or more independently operated booking engines (see “Reservation System” below for more information on how this system works). When we collect this type of information, we will notify you as to why we are asking for information and how this information will be used.
The Website allows users to search for and reserve rooms at Hard Rock Hotels throughout the world. Please note that some of these hotels are not owned or managed by Hard Rock, but are owned and managed by franchisees, which are separate and independent entities from Hard Rock. When you make a reservation online, you will be asked to supply your name, email address, birthdate, telephone number, and employer or company name, and credit card, debit card or other form of payment information (collectively “Reservation Information”). This Reservation Information is collected and processed by one of several online booking engines (“Booking Engines”) that are used by us (in the case of hotels in which we provide reservation services ) or the different franchisees that own and operate certain Hard Rock Hotels. You should see a link to the Booking Engine in the address bar of your browser when you start making a reservation. The following are the various Booking Engines used and links to their privacy policies that govern their use of the Reservation Information:
This list of Booking Engines is subject to change and any additions or deletions will be reflected in an updated version of this Policy.
These Booking Engines will provide the Reservation Information to both us and/or to the independent operators and/or managers of the Hard Rock Hotels to complete your reservation and to provide you services. Some of the Reservation Information may also be provided to Hard Rock to verify if a visit occurred and for purposes of tracking loyalty rewards under the Hard Rock Rewards Program.
HARD ROCK MAKES NO REPRESENTATION AND WARRANTIES REGARDING SUCH BOOKING ENGINES OR THEIR INFORMATION SECURITY OR PRIVACY PRACTICES. PLEASE NOTE THAT HARD ROCK DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILTY RELATING TO USE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION (INCLUDING RESERVATION INFORMATION) BY THE BOOKING ENGINES OR THE OWNERS OR OPERATORS OF THE FRANCHISED HOTELS THAT ARE NOT OWNED, MANAGED OR OPERATED BY HARD ROCK.

Some information that we collect about you is collected passively through the use of "cookies."
