Last revised on November 23, 2022.

 

 I. Who we are:

Heirloom (“we,” “us,” “our,” and “Heirloom”) was created to encourage guests to gather and have memorable adventures without compromising the group travel experience or the style and authenticity of homes in premier destinations. Our website and its functions (the “Service”) are the means in which we facilitate these experiences. It provides information about Heirloom and the cities we operate in. It is also an online booking platform for our properties. 

The Service is owned and operated by Glaser Property Management, a Massachusetts corporation, and its subsidiary, Heirloom. We, at Heirloom, respect your privacy. To demonstrate this, we created this Privacy Policy to describe how your personal information is collected, used, and shared when you use the Service. You may visit most of our site without providing any personal information to us. But sometimes we need information in order to provide you services that you request, and this policy explains our data collection practices.

“Personal Information” refers to a piece of information that could potentially identify an individual, such as their name, e-mail address, or billing information. Heirloom respects your choice of disclosing your personal information and keeps track of applicable law to ensure that the use of your data is in compliance. 

We will not use, share, or disclose your personal information except as described in this Privacy Policy. Further, we will never sell your personal information to third-parties. 

We use your personal information for the purposes indicated in this Privacy Policy, primarily for the objective of providing and improving the Service and responding to inquiries. By using the Service, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy. 

II. What kind of personal information is collected by Heirloom?

 When you use the Service, no personal information will be automatically collected by Heirloom while you are browsing the website. We do not collect any personal information about you unless you voluntarily provide it to us. You provide certain personal information when you use our Contact Form. When you send us a message through the Contact Form, we collect your name, email address, and the message that you send. 

Additionally, it is important to note that the chat box on our homepage is managed by a third-party service provider, Tidio Chat. The messages that you send through the chat box are stored through their interface. However, we also receive emails of the chat messages that you send. For information about how to request modification or deletion of this information, please see Section V. We cannot control Tidio’s collection of information and are not responsible for their policies and practices. Please see Section VI for a description of this service provider as well as a link to their privacy policy. Please refer to their policy for more information regarding what they collect and how to request deletion of it. 

Other functions of our website are also maintained by third-parties in order to enhance your experience with the Service.

We are not responsible for the policies or practices of third-parties. Descriptions of what functions on our website are managed by third-parties and links to their respective privacy policies are available in Section VI below.
