Personal information is information about you that is personally identifiable like your name, address, email address, credit or debit card information, or phone number, and that is not otherwise publicly available.
These policy practices may be different than the practices of companies that Amstar DMC does not own or control, or of people that Amstar DMC does not manage or employ. Please read the following policy to understand how your personal information will be treated as you use our website.
This policy may change from time to time, so please check back periodically.
Amstar DMC will only obtain personal information from you when necessary to provide the contracted service, and when you choose to provide it, such as if you enter a sweepstakes, contest or promotion; when you register; when you sign up for Email specials; when you request information about various products and services we offer; when you make travel arrangements using our website; or if you contact Amstar DMC using our website. If you contact Amstar DMC, we may keep a record of that correspondence. Information you submit for us to provide the contracted services will not be used to subscribe you for email marketing unless you specifically opt-in.
The types of information collected on these pages include but are not limited to the following:
You may remove your consent to receive marketing information at any time using the ‘unsubscribe’ link at the bottom of every email. Travel agents with an account may update the email marketing option on their Amstar account profile page.
The information you provide may be used to provide you with a product, information, collect payment for our product, and/or to allow you access to our online services. Delivering the product you purchased, or contracted from us, is the legal basis for using the data you provided.
You have the right to request from Amstar editing or erasure of personal data or restriction of processing. You may contact Amstar to object to processing of your data, or to get a copy of your data. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority. Contact us at our email or physical address provided below to make a data or other request.

The travel preference information we collect from you includes: departure state, preferred airport, destination/hobby interests, duration of stay preference, price range and seasonal preference.
You must create a password to create an account, so your account is password-protected. This is unique and regarded as confidential; consequently, it should be carefully guarded. Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords, User IDs, and/or any account information. Our secure server encrypts all personal information so that it cannot be read as it is transmitted over the Internet. You may modify your travel profile and account information at any time by updating the information in your Amstar account.
Amstar DMC may, from time to time, send you e-mail messages regarding our product specials and services, only if you have opted-in to receive such messages. Once you have opted-in to receive e-mails from us, you may choose to opt-out of e-mail communications at any time by using the ‘unsubscribe’ link at the bottom of each email. If you are a Travel Agent you may indicate you no longer want to receive marketing emails in your Amstar account profile. Regardless of your communication preferences, even if you have opted-out of e-mail marketing messages, AmstarDMC.com retains the right to send you a transaction-specific email confirmation when you have booked a vacation on our website.
Amstar DMC has implemented technology and systems that protect the information you provide. In those instances when you are asked to submit private information such as a credit card number, you can be assured that we have security measures in place to protect this information. We protect your information with state-of-the-art Secure Socket Layer SSL Technology. This technology provides the advanced encryption tools necessary to protect information transmitted between your computer and our server. Encryption means that your information is converted into code before it is dispatched over the Internet.
