A travel vacation should not only be an unforgettable experience, but offer solid peace of mind. That’s why USTOA created a consumer protection fund which protects consumers who book with our Active Members.
USTOA protects your privacy and your data. USTOA does not share, disclose, trade or sell any personally identifiable information collected online with other companies or organizations. If USTOA should, at any time, desire to share its customers' personal or online transactional data with third parties, it will provide advance notification allowing its users the opportunity to prevent the company from providing their information to third parties.
While USTOA will use its best efforts to protect your privacy and personal information, we may be required by law or we may believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary: a) to defend our rights or property or those of our users; b) to comply with legal process served on us or our affiliates; c) or in connection with a corporate transaction such as a merger, consolidation or sale of substantial assets.
We may also use your personal information to investigate and help prevent potentially unlawful activity or activity that threatens our service.
