FabHotels may collect two (2) types of information about you: Personal and Non-Personal.

FabHotels may collect Personal Information when you use the FabHotels including, without limitation, setting up account information, making bookings of hotels, filling out surveys, corresponding with FabHotels, or otherwise volunteering information about yourself.

Failure to provide all required information required by FabHotels may prevent access to any or all FabHotels, and failure to maintain accurate information may result in suspension or termination of access to any or all FabHotels services.
2.2 Information Collected Through Technology
While you are able to visit the FabHotels and remain anonymous, FabHotels or its third party service providers may still collect Non-Personal Information about your use of the FabHotels (e.g. your Internet browser, operating system, IP address, connection speed, and the domain name of your Internet service provider). Such information may be gathered by the following methods:
a) Cookies. Cookies, including local shared objects, are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive which work by assigning to your system a unique number that has no meaning outside of the FabHotels. Cookies do not generally contain any Personal Information. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually configure your browser to prevent this.

An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you begin Services with an Internet services provider. Each time you access the FabHotels Site and each time you request one of FabHotels’s pages, the server logs your IP address.
c) Web Beacons. Web beacons are small pieces of data that are embedded in web pages and e-mails. FabHotels may use these technical methods in HTML e-mails that FabHotels sends to Users to determine whether they have opened those e-mails and/or clicked on links in those e-mails. The information from use of these technical methods may be collected in a form that is Personal Information.
d) Tracking Content Usage. If you use the FabHotels Services and you post audio visual materials including, without limitation, text, logos, artwork, graphics, pictures, advertisements, sound and other related intellectual property contained in such materials (collectively, “Content”) to your website or to a third party website, FabHotels tracks and captures Non-Personal Information associated with User accounts and the use of Content.
