Collection of Information

Stash Site Visitors

We collect information from visitors to the Stash Site ("Visitors"), both Members and non-Members, when they voluntarily provide it to us on the Stash Site. For example, we may request your name, street address, phone number and/or email address when you request information relating to RPC, a Participating Hotel, the Stash Site or Stash program, or when you respond to one of our online surveys.

If you send us an email from the Stash Site, we may retain your email (including the email address from which it was sent), our response(s) and any follow up communications that you send. This information may be used to assess the extent to which your questions or concerns were addressed and to improve our Stash program and Stash Site.

From time to time we may offer an "invite friends" feature on the Stash Site that allows you to send an electronic message to a friend. If you choose to use this feature, we will ask you for your email address, the recipient's name and email address, and the text of any message you choose to include. You can import contacts from your Outlook or other email account address book to invite them to become members of our website. We collect the username and password for the email account from which you wish to import your contacts, and will only use your personal information for that purpose.  By using the invite friends feature , you represent and warrant to us that you are entitled to provide us with the recipient's name and email address for this purpose. We will only use recipient names and email addresses to send the one time invitation emails. We will not send any further communications to recipients unless and until they enroll in the Stash program and agree to the terms and conditions of membership, including this Policy. We store this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email and tracking the success of our referral program. We may receive personal information about you (e.g., your name and email address) from other Members as part of the invite friends feature. We may allow the referring Member to check the status of your invitation and will notify that Member when and if you join the program and when you have your first stay at a Participating Hotel.

Your friend may contact us at member support to request that we remove this information from our database.

Technologies such as: cookies, beacons, tags and scripts are used by RPC and our marketing partners, affiliates, and analytics providers. These technologies are used in analyzing trends, administering the site, tracking users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by these companies on an individual as well as aggregated basis.

We use cookies for authentication, to remember users’ settings, to keep track of user activity during a visit to our site, to conduct usability tests, to improve site performance, and to implement certain features of our site. Users can control the use of cookies at the individual browser level. If you reject cookies, you may still use our site, but your ability to use some features or areas of our site may be limited. 

As is true of most web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files.  This information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data. 

We may combine this automatically collected log information with other information we collect about you. We do this to improve services we offer you and to improve marketing, analytics, and site functionality. The collected information is not used for any other purpose.

We use Local Storage, such as HTML5, to store content information and preferences. Third Parties with whom we partner to provide certain features on our site use LSOs such as Flash and HTML5 to collect and store information.  To manage Flash LSOs please click here.

Stash Members

We collect certain information from Members when they enroll in the Stash program. Members are required to provide their name, address and email address and may also provide their phone number. The email address you provide at the time of enrollment will serve as your Member ID. In addition, you will create a password at the time of enrollment which you will need to access your Member account ("Account") information and preferences.

We maintain personal profiles for our Stash Members containing hotel stay preference and other information that they voluntarily provide to us. Examples of the types of voluntary information we may seek in the Member profile include (i) high vs. low floor, smoking vs. non-smoking room, beverage and pillow type preferences, and (ii) whether the Member participates in other travel rewards programs. Creating and completing a member profile allows you to make reservations and redeem Stash Points more easily and also allows us and our Participating Hotels to enhance your membership and hotel stay experiences. We may share a Member's preference profile with a Participating Hotel when the Member books a stay at that Participating Hotel through a Stash Site and/or when we otherwise learn of a Member's upcoming stay at a Participating Hotel.

We may also collect non-personal information relating to Members, such as aggregated Participating Hotel stay data, responses to surveys and/or promotional offers, communication preferences, travel patterns (e.g., frequency of travel, frequent destinations, etc) or use of the Stash Sites.

Following a Member's check-out from a Participating Hotel, the Participating Hotel will provide us with information relating to the stay, including the Member's email address, check in and check out date, reservation number, room type, rate code and folio amount. This stay information is used to credit the appropriate number of Stash Points (if any) to the Member's Account and may also be used to identify and send targeted promotional offers to the Member. We may also extrapolate certain information from such stay data, such as a Member's frequency of travel and/or frequency of stays in Participating Hotels, and share such information with a Participating Hotel when we learn of a Member's upcoming stay at that Participating Hotel.

Children

The Stash Site is intended for users over the age of majority. We do not target or direct the Stash Site towards children under the age of 13, and children under 13 should not provide personal information to the Stash Site.

Use of Collected Information

We will use personal information provided by Visitors to the Stash Site for the purpose it was provided and as otherwise disclosed to the Visitor at the time the information is provided.

With respect Stash Site analysis, we may use Google Analytics, or another analytics provider, to record and process information as to how your browser navigates the Stash Site, what keywords drove traffic to the Stash Site, to help us count visitors and evaluate the Stash Site’s technical capacity.

We may share Members' personal information with our Participating Hotels. For example, we may share a Member's personal preference profile and point balance with a Participating Hotel when we are aware that the Member has booked a stay at that hotel. We will also match a Member's Member ID against guest stay information provided to us by the Participating Hotels to ensure that Stash Points are credited to the Member's account in connection with Eligible Stays. We will also provide Members' personal information to Participating Hotels in connection with hotel transactions they book through the Stash Site. Information that Members directly provide to a Participating Hotel (for example, when booking a stay on their website or at check in or check out) is subject to that Participating Hotel's own privacy practices and policies.

We may share Members’ personal information with Synchrony Financial, our financial services partner, so that Stash may offer Members the opportunity to apply for the co-brand Stash Hotel Rewards® Visa® Card. Specifically, we may share Members’ name, mailing address, email address, and telephone number with Synchrony so that we can identify Members who may be interested in learning about and applying for the Stash Hotel Rewards Visa credit card.  If you do not want this information shared you may delete your membership account via the Delete Account section in the My Account section of the website.

Service Provider

We may use third party service providers to provide specific business support services to us which may involve limited access to Member or Visitor personal information. We require these companies to use the information only to provide the contracted services and prohibit them from transferring the information to another party except as needed to provide the contracted services. Examples of such services include sending emails, conducting and administering promotions, executing surveys, providing customer service, and maintaining Member Account database.

We reserve the right to disclose your personal information with other parties (a) when the Member or Visitor consents to the disclosure, (b) when we believe that it is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the security of our Stash Site or Members, (c) as required by law, or (d) when we believe that it is necessary to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Stash Site.
