Once that period expires, you may receive a renewal notice which will allow you to limit marketing offers for another 5 years.

Security Procedures to Protect Information
Security of personal information is extremely important to us. Carnival employs security measures consistent with standard industry practice to prevent unauthorized access to your personal information collected on and used by Carnival at this site. Our site uses SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) security technology to encrypt information you provide to us through the Site, but any information you provide us by email is unencrypted. SSL is an industry-standard protocol for encryption over the internet. Data transmission over the internet is never 100% secure.

While we take steps to protect your personal information and keep it secure, you also play a role in protecting your information. You can help to maintain the security of your online transactions by not sharing your booking number or password with anyone. Carnival cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us or from our site, and therefore you use our site at your own risk.

While we try to link only to sites that share our standards and respect for privacy, we are not responsible for the privacy practices of our affiliates or any other third parties or the content of linked sites, although we do encourage you to read the applicable privacy policies and terms and conditions of such parties or web sites.

Changes to this Privacy Policy
We will occasionally amend this Privacy Policy to reflect company and customer feedback and we reserve the right to make changes to this Privacy Policy at any time. The use of your information is subject to the Privacy Policy and Terms of Use in effect at the time of use.
