A "web beacon," also known as an Internet tag, pixel tag or clear GIF, is used to transmit information back to a web server.

We also may use third-party website analytics tools (such as Google Analytics), that collect information about visitor traffic on our sites and mobile applications.

Online Advertising

On our websites, we may collect information about your online activities to provide advertising about products and services tailored to your individual interests. You may see certain ads on this and other sites because we participate in advertising networks. Ad networks allow us to target our advertising to users through demographic, behavioural and contextual means. These networks track your online activities over time by collecting information through automated means, including through the use of cookies, web server logs, web beacons and other methods. The networks use this information to show you advertisements for Veilability and our business partners that are tailored to your individual interests. The information our ad network vendors collect includes information about your visits to websites that participate in the vendors' advertising networks, such as the pages or advertisements you have viewed, and the actions you take on the sites. This data collection and ad targeting take place both on our websites and on third-party websites that participate in the ad networks. This process also helps us track the effectiveness of our marketing efforts.

Who we share your information with

We do not disclose any information about customer searches and enquiries to anyone other than the customer or persons who can verify are authorised by the customer in relation to the search or enquiry, except in the following circumstances:

  • Wedding Reception Providers: When a Check Availability or Enquiry request is sent to a Wedding Reception Venue, we provide the venue with the details you submitted in the form. The venue requires this information to be able to respond to your request satisfactorily and may use it if to contact you about your request.
  • Service Providers: We work with a third party email service provider to facilitate our newsletter marketing campaigns using the information described in this policy. They are not permitted to use your email address or share personal information for any other purpose.
  • Legal Obligations: We may be required by law to disclose your Personal Information. We may also disclose information against someone who poses a threat to our interests (such as customer fraud) or whose activities could cause harm to others.

How you control and access your information

You may, of course, decline to share certain information with Veilability, in which case Veilability may not be able to provide to you some of the features and functionality found on the Service.

What security procedures does Veilability use to protect personal information?

While no Internet site can guarantee security, we use physical, electronic, and administrative safeguards to assist us in preventing unauthorised access, maintaining data accuracy, and correctly using your Personal Information. Except as specified in this Privacy Policy, we use commercially reasonable efforts to limit access to your Personal Information to the employees, agents, and officers of Veilability who need the information for their jobs.
