2. Use of Commons

The Commons is a central location owned and operated by us that provides participating hotels ("Partners") and their authorized employees, agents and other users ("Users") with access to tools, functionality and information, as we may establish and maintain from time to time and in our sole discretion, regarding the Partner's guests, its Stash program participation, and the broader Stash community and network of participating Partners. Features of the Commons include:

  • A "Tools" section which provides Partners and their Users with access to a variety of tools, tips and information for working with hotel guests, including training tools for front desk agents, spot award submission forms and integration with the Stash Hub tool, which allows Partners to check guest membership status and view preference information for those member guests who have opted-in to allow Stash share that information. Here, Partners and their Users will be also be able to manage rates, submit promotions, order Stash marketing collateral, access a directory containing contact information for participating Partners so that Partners can communicate directly, and submit and access partner preferred rates at participating Partner hotels across the Stash network.

  • A "Reports" section in which Partners and their Users will be able to access reports regarding their performance in the Stash program (including enrollment reports, ROI reports and leader boards).

  • "Blog" and " Forum" sections in which Partners and their Users can access news and other blog posts from Stash, post comments and other content, view content posted by other Partners and Users, and discuss issues related to Stash, their hotels and other related topics with other Partners and Users and us.

3. Partner Account and Authorized Users

Each Partner participating in the Stash program will have the ability to set up an account and access and use the Commons in accordance with these Terms. Each Partner shall designate one or more individuals ("Partner Administrator(s)") who will be responsible for registering and creating an account for the Partner on the Commons (an "Account"), identifying those employees, agents and other users who are authorized to access the Partner's Account (its "Users"), overseeing the use of the Commons by such Users, monitoring the content posted to the Commons by such Users, and deleting Users from its Account when such Users are no longer authorized to access and use its Account. Each authorized User shall be required to separately register on the Commons, agree to these Terms and create a password to access the Account. Stash and Partner shall each have the right, in their discretion, to restrict, modify or terminate any User's ability to access an Account and/or use the Commons.

Each Partner, its Partner Administrators and authorized Users are responsible for the activity that occurs on the Partner's Account. Partners may, and are encouraged to, develop their own internal policies, guidelines and procedures concerning their Users' access to and use of the Commons, provided that such policies, guidelines and procedures are consistent with, and do not conflict with, these Terms. Each User must keep their Account password secure. The Partner Administrator must notify Stash immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of its Account.

Personal information that we collect on the Commons, (e.g., User name and e-mail address), will be governed by ourCommons Privacy Policy, which is incorporated into these Terms by reference. The Commons shall include a Partner Directory in which Partners can provide contact information for various employees (e.g., General Manager name, e-mail and phone number, Director of Sales name, e-mail and phone number, etc). This directory shall be viewable by all Partners with Accounts and their Users and allow such Partners to contact each other directly. By utilizing the Commons, you agree to provide, or allow your Partner Administrator provide, your work contact information, including name, job title and work address, phone number and e-mail address, for inclusion in the Partner Directory posted on the Commons.
