We have not configured this website to collect any personal information from your computer when browsing this site. This means that, unless you voluntarily and knowingly provide us with personal information, we will not know your name, your email address, or any other information identifiable to you.

Our website uses “cookie” technology. “Cookies” are encrypted strings of text that a website stores on a user’s computer. Our website requires the use of a cookie throughout the online reservation process. In addition, a cookie is used to:
• Recognize return visitors;
• Customize the appearance of our website based on the hotel brand you initially sought to visit (i.e., based on the website address you initially typed in);
• Prevent the same user from making repeated enrollments in our Marriott Rewards program see (http://www.marriottrewards.com/rewards/terms/default.asp for the specific terms and conditions and privacy statement that apply to that program);
• Store and recall user preferences and identify which of our web pages are most useful for our visitors;
• Measure usage of our site and the various pages on the site; and
• Provide functionality and content that we believe would be of interest and value to you.
If you do not wish to receive these cookies, you may set your browser to reject the cookies (consult the instructions for your particular browser on how to do this), although doing so may affect your ability to perform certain transactions on our website.
Information We Collect and How We Use It
When we need to collect information from you, we will ask you to voluntarily supply us with the information we need. For example, if you would like to make a reservation at our hotel, we will ask you for information such as name, address, telephone number, email address, credit card type, credit card number, expiration date and room preference (non-smoking room or no preference) to process your reservation. We will use your email address to send a confirmation and, if necessary, might use the other information to contact you for help to process the reservation. The same type of information would be requested to complete a gift certificate transaction.
We may also ask you to fill out an online customer survey, to obtain your suggestions or comments about your use of Amsterdam Marriott Hotel services, or for similar purposes. Providing this information is voluntary and it is used only for the purpose for which the information was collected and is not used for direct marketing or shared with other companies.
We treat the information you provide to us as confidential information; it is, accordingly, subject to our Company’s security procedures and corporate policies regarding protection and use of confidential information. Because laws applicable to personal information vary by country, our hotels or other business operations may put in place additional measures that vary depending on the applicable legal requirements. Information is generally processed and stored in the country where this Amsterdam Marriott Hotel site is being hosted.
It is our intention to only send you email communications that will be useful to you and that you want to receive. When you create a personal profile on this website or make a reservation via telephone and provide your email address, we will occasionally contact you via email and provide information about products and offerings that may be of interest to you. These communications will typically relate to special Amsterdam Marriott Hotel offers and promotions. If you would prefer not to receive such emails you may indicate so in your profile. In addition to your choice to opt-out of emails in your personal profile on Marriott.com, you are provided the opportunity to opt-out of future emails in every email message you receive from www.amsterdammarriott.com /unsubscriber/
We use a third-party email service provider to send emails. This service provider is prohibited from using your email address for any purpose other than to send a Marriott related email.
Disclosure of Information to Third Parties
Amsterdam Marriott Hotel prohibits the sale or transfer of personal information to entities outside of the Marriott family of companies and hotels for their use without your approval and giving you the opportunity to opt-out.
