Bookerville is committed to keeping the privacy of our members protected. This includes any and all information
that is collected from members (typically owners or managers of properties), and the guests who visit the property pages on
The information you enter as a guest - including name, phone number, and email address - is collected and stored
in the Bookerville private database. It is sent to the owner/manager of the property for which a booking is
requested, so that the owner/manager can contact the guests and confirm details to make arrangements for contract
signing, key pickup, arrival instructions (perhaps including door codes), subsequent scheduled payments, etc.
Members, Property Owners
Bookerville needs to collect certain information in order to register users as members of the Bookerville site.
This is usually limited to just a user name (which the member chooses at registration time), and an email address
which is used to send the password to the member. Bookerville also collects information in the Property Setup
pages, which includes various data about the property including address, nightly rates, and booking information.
All of this data is kept strictly confidential and is not shared with any other party, other than through the
normal public Bookerville calendar and listing pages, unless the Bookerville member specifies that they wish to share their property data with other entities, and makes the corresponding settings in their Bookerville account.
Owner information, and their property information, is kept private.
Bookerville does not publicly display the rental property address, nor the owner's/manager's address. Only the owner's/manager's
name and email address are displayed on the public calendar pages, so that potential customers have a way to contact them with
Email and Spam
Bookerville despises spam! We will not divulge your email address(es) (or any of your other information) to any other parties - period. We value your trust and will not
do anything to violate it. Many membership-based sites will participate in data exchanges, or selling their member email addresses to companies that use them for the purposes of spamming.
Bookerville does not engage in this practice in any way. The vast majority of email correspondence from Bookerville is generated from actions taken by individual members. As the owner/manager of a property
or unit, you will receive emails that are generated by guests making inquiries, and also from Bookerville when certain events occur (i.e., a booking is made).
Additionally, Bookerville occasionally sends automatic emails for things such as:
- Subscription expiration notices - one reminder is sent two weeks prior to expiration, another is sent one week prior, and a final notice is sent the day before an expiration. After that, when the expiration date passes without a new subscription payment, the property is simply de-activated. It can be re-activated by paying for a new subscription at any time.
- Software updates - whenever there is a significant revision to the Bookerville software, we are obligated to inform our members. This is usually limited to three or four times a year.
Bookerville may also occasionally send automatic emails to our members to inform them of special offers, new features, or other Bookerville-specific events, but these are very rare. Bookerville does not engage in
promoting unrelated products or services from other parties: to us, this would be no different than selling our member email addresses to an outside party.
We are committed to keeping our business model simple, transparent, and honest. We provide a valuable service to our customers, and they pay us directly for it. By adhering to this principle,
we aim to keep the web site free of advertisements, and your mailbox free of un-wanted spam.
