Terms + Policies


The Wayback Café and Cottages, LLC (the “Wayback,” “we,” or “our”) values and protects your privacy and places strict controls on the gathering and use of sensitive information and confidential information.  Sensitive information and confidential information are not disclosed, made available, or otherwise used for purposes other than those specified at the time of collection, except with your consent or as authorized by law or regulation.  This policy covers the personal data and information we collect through this website.  Personal information is data that identifies you personally, either alone or in combination with other information available to us.  Examples of personal information include your name, address, email address, tax identification number, credit card number, if applicable, and the information you provide when you use our site for bookings and other contractual interactions such as the creation of an account or a personal profile.  Of course, such information may also be collected in person by our staff as necessary for bookings and other contractual arrangements.


The Wayback understands the importance of maintaining your privacy and will make every attempt to maintain your trust and confidence regarding the collection and use of your sensitive and confidential information.  Please read this policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your information and how we will treat it. By accessing or using this website, you agree to this privacy policy and all terms and conditions posted on the website.  This policy may change from time to time.  Your continued use of this website after we make changes is deemed to be acceptance of those changes, so please check the policy periodically for updates.


By using this website you are accepting the practices described in this policy (including the cookies policy available on this site).  If you do not agree to this policy or the cookies policy, please do not use this website.  We reserve the right to make changes to this policy or the cookies policy at any time.  Any changes will be posted in this policy or the cookies policy and material changes will generally apply only to activities and information collected on a going forward basis.  We encourage you to regularly review this policy and the cookies policy to make sure you are aware of any changes and how your information may be used.


Personal, Sensitive, or Confidential Information.  Personal information refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are. Personal information is requested when you order a service, register for an account and send us feedback.  For example, this information might include your name, address (both billing and registered), email address, industry and product details, and credit card or other payment information. Such information may be held on our contacts and administration databases either because of the work we have done with you or are currently engaged in, or because we believe you might be interested in receiving material from us about our business, products, programs and services.  This allows us to manage our relationship with you efficiently, improve our site and the services which we offer to you and to target items of interest we may send to you.  We may also use third-party credit card processing systems to process payments.


The voluntary disclosure of sensitive information or confidential information to the Wayback, whether solicited or unsolicited, via physical or electronic means constitutes your consent to the collection and disclosure of the information by the Wayback for the purposes for which the information was disclosed to the Wayback, as was reasonably ascertainable from the nature and terms of the disclosure, including collection and disclosure for the purpose of validating your identity and compliance with all contracts by and between you and the Wayback.


Web Analytics Data.  The Wayback’s website collects and stores information each time you access it to enable us to measure the total number of visitors, and certain non-personal statistical information.  This helps us make our websites more accessible, personal, and useful to visitors.  If you browse through our site reading, printing, or downloading information, no sensitive information and no confidential information about you is collected.


The information we collect when you visit the Wayback’s site may include:

  • The Internet Protocol (IP) address from which you are accessing the site(s)


  • The name of the Internet Service Provider (ISP) or wireless carrier you are using to access the site(s) (e.g. Comcast, Spectrum, Verizon, or Sprint)

  • The date and time you visited the site(s)

  • The web pages or services you accessed at the site(s)

  • The type, manufacturer, model, operating system, and Media Access Control (MAC) address of the device you are using to access the site(s)

  • Internet browser type and version used to access the site(s)

The Wayback uses Google Analytics to measure traffic on our website.  Review the Google Analytics Terms of Use or learn more about how Google uses, collects, and processes analytics data.  To prevent Google Analytics from recognizing return visits to our websites you may disable cookies in your Web browser.  The Wayback website may also use JavaScript to collect site traffic and activity, as well as to measure the performance of our servers and network. These scripts do not collect sensitive information or confidential information about you.


Cookies, Pixels, and Other Digital Tracking Technologies.  To better serve you, our website may use cookies to enhance or customize your visit to the site.  Cookies do not contain your sensitive information or confidential information.  If, however, you have created a user identity, for example, by signing up to use a password-protected area on one of our sites, we may link the information we collect using web technologies to other information that identifies you personally.  If you do not wish to receive cookies, you may set your browser to reject cookies or to alert you when a cookie is placed on your computer. You may also delete our cookies as soon as you leave a site. Although you are not required to accept our cookies when you visit our sites, if you set your browser to reject cookies, you will not be able to use all of the features and functionality of our sites.


We may also use third-party credit card processing systems to process payments and advertising companies to deliver advertisements on our behalf.  These companies may use anonymous cookies or other technologies to track information regarding your browsing history on our website and in other places.  Third-party advertising networks, such as Google AdWords and AdRoll, use this information to deliver ads to you on our behalf at other sites throughout the Internet, to track your response to advertisements, report on visitor interaction, and to measure the effectiveness of advertisements. We do not control these third parties' tracking technologies or how they may be used.


Facebook provides certain features and tools, such as pixels, SDKs, and APIs that can send your browsing data to Facebook, including pages you visit and actions you take while on our website.  This tool allows us to personalize our ads based on the content you viewed on our site.  We may also use Facebook technology to deliver interest-based ads using lists of email addresses that we have collected at our website.  We update these lists periodically so that we do not intentionally target our ads to users who have opted out of emails from the Wayback.


Email.  If you communicate with the Wayback by sending an email, your email address may be retained for further communication with you in connection with processing your request or as provided by law.  Do not send any sensitive or confidential information in the body of, or as an attachment to, an electronic mail message unless the data is adequately encrypted.  Data sent via email is not inherently secured or encrypted.  Any information contained in an email message or attachment may be retained and stored by the Wayback and may be provided to others pursuant to these policies and to better serve your needs.  In addition, the Wayback collects the email addresses of those individuals who voluntarily provide their email address on our website and on other platforms, such as Facebook.


Further, email addresses and other volunteered information may be used to send news, notices, and other information to those who request it.  Email addresses may also be used to serve interest-based ads on other platforms, such as Facebook.  We may use third party e-mail services to communicate with our users and customers.


Social Media.  The Wayback makes use of social media tools (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc.) to keep the public informed of news, economic updates, and other announcements.  Any comments or posts made to a social media forum maintained by the Wayback may be subject to release to the public and/or use by the Wayback.  

Users of these social media services are bound by terms of service and user agreements for the platform.


Purpose Limitations.  The Wayback gathers your information through lawful means.  Any subsequent use or storage of the information is limited to purposes consistent with the purpose(s) given at the time of collection and/or otherwise stated herein. 


Public Disclosure.  While we will adhere to these policies, some information submitted or accessed by you may be subject to public disclosure.  We will use reasonable and appropriate efforts to protect your sensitive personal information (SPI) from inclusion with public records.


Disclosure to Third Parties.  You are responsible for protecting the confidentiality of any user ID, password, or PIN used to access our website.  If you give your user ID, password, or PIN to anyone else, they will be able to access your sensitive and confidential information.  We may use third parties to process credit card transactions.  Except as noted herein, we do not sell or distribute your information to any third party without your consent or as authorized by law or regulation.  Employees will only use sensitive and confidential information submitted by you on a need-to-know basis to provide information or services and products.


Further, except as noted herein, we will not disclose information we collect from you to third parties without your permission except to the extent necessary including:

  • To fulfill your requests for services;

  • To protect ourselves from liability and enforce our agreements;

  • To verify or update information provided;

  • To comply with any law enforcement agency, self-regulatory organizations or a properly authorized civil, criminal, or regulatory investigation

  • To prevent, detect, mitigate, and investigate actual or potential fraud and unauthorized transactions or claims; or

  • To comply with subpoenas or summons or to comply with federal, state or local laws, rules and other legal requirements, or in connection with a merger, acquisition, or liquidation of the company.

It is possible to opt-out of data collection by common third parties such as Google Analytics of Facebook by visiting their websites.

Retention and Destruction.  Information collected by or provided to the Wayback will be retained and maintained as required by law and these policies.  Different types of information may be kept for different periods of time.  The Wayback stores or uses sensitive and confidential information submitted by you only for the time necessary. Confidential information is destroyed via purging, magnetic degaussing/erasing, shredding, and/or other means of authorized confidential destruction when no longer required and to prevent unauthorized access or use of the data.  Regularly scheduled archiving, purging, and proper disposal of records and information is a standard practice throughout the Wayback.


The Wayback’s public facing websites and systems, as well as internal systems, have reasonable security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of your data and information that is under our control.  


Appropriate computer, network, and Internet technical security controls at the employee prevent unauthorized access to information voluntarily provided by you.  Some of these security controls are: password and user identification verification, data encryption, confidential transmissions, secure storage areas, and audit trails.  The Wayback employees are educated regarding the requirements of working with sensitive and confidential information as well as the consequences of misuse.


In general, you have the right to request, receive, and review your information with the Wayback.  You are also entitled to have us correct any information about you in our possession that may be incorrect.  To request information from us for review or to request a correction of incorrect information about yourself, please submit your request via one of the methods listed below and ensure your request includes enough description and detail so we may accurately identify and locate your information.

Our website may contain links to other websites for your information and convenience. The Wayback has no control over the privacy practices or the content of such other websites.  Please review the privacy information provided by these sites.  The responsibility for the content and accuracy of information on sites accessed by linking from our website rests with the entities providing the information.  This includes any responsibility for updating information upon which visitors may rely.  The inclusion of links from our sites to others does not imply any endorsement by the Wayback of any product, service, or vendor.  Any mention of products, services, or vendors is for informational purposes only.


The information provided in this privacy policy should not be construed as giving business, legal, or other advice, or representing or warranting the nature and adequacy or security of information provided through our websites.  Users of the website are responsible for checking the accuracy, completeness, currency and/or suitability of all information themselves.  While the Wayback attempts to maintain a high degree of accuracy, we will not be held liable for errors or omissions that may occur.


Ownership and copyrights are reserved for all information on the website, including, but not limited to pictures, symbols, names, and logos (whether formally registered or service marked) and may not be copied and used without the express written permission of the Wayback.  


The Wayback is not an operator of a website or online service directed at children under 13 years of age and does not knowingly collect sensitive and confidential information from children without parental consent.  Users are cautioned, however, that the collection of sensitive and confidential information via an interactive application or email will be treated as though it was submitted by an adult, and may, unless exempted from access by federal or state law, be subject to public access.  The Wayback strongly encourages parents and teachers to be involved in children's Internet activities, and to provide guidance whenever children are asked to provide sensitive and confidential information online.


The Wayback, its owners, and employees expressly disclaim all implied warranties of merchantability and of fitness for a particular purpose.  You expressly agree that your use of this website is at your own risk.  The Wayback, its owners, and employees do not warrant that this website, its services, its servers, or email sent from it are free of viruses or other harmful components.


Under no circumstances shall the Wayback, its owners, and employees be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, punitive, or consequential damages that result in any way from your use of this website, or sites to which it links, or from reliance on or use of information, services, software, or merchandise provided on or through this website, or that result from deletion of files, delays in operation or transmission of data, or any failure of performance of the site.


The Wayback’s policy on establishing links from our website to other websites is guided by our business needs.  Links are provided as a public service and for informational purposes only.  Links are provided only when the external server provides information that is useful to our business purposes or our clients.  We do not enter into reciprocal linking agreements.  Links to private commercial and noncommercial websites will only be allowed if the link is approved by the Wayback management.


Considerations in Determining Whether to Link to a Private Website.


Proposed links will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.  We will remove or disallow links to external servers if we become aware that they are not managed in a professional manner, not operational and available most of the time, not kept up-to-date, provide inaccurate information or contain unlawful or inappropriate content. We will also remove a link if the owner of the website objects to such link.


We reserve the right to refuse to allow a link to be established to any website that contains material that may be deemed to be offensive or inappropriate as determined by our sole judgment and discretion.
