Our Commitment to Security

We take the security of your information seriously and use reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information we collect online.

Of course, no data transmission over the Internet is fully secure, and any message or information you send to the Network may be read or intercepted by others, even if there is a special notice that a particular transmission (for example, credit card information) is encrypted.

Although we take every precaution to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot assure that personally identifiable information that we collect will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Policy. So, please be aware that you provide your personally identifiable information at your own account and risk.

The Information We Collect

On certain portions of the Network, you are requested to provide personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”). Personal Information may include: (a) an e-mail address (mandatory), and (b) other optional information (e.g., cell phone numbers and information about your interests in and use of various products, programs, and services). Personal Information may also include business contact information (e.g., office address, business telephone number).

Personal Information may be collected when you: (a) create a Registered Account; (b) create Subaccounts linked to your Registered Account; (c) register for promotions or other features of the Network; and (d) report any complaints about any problem relating to the Network or your use of the Network. This Privacy Policy does not cover information collected elsewhere, including without limitation offline and on websites, applications, destinations, or services linked to and from the Network.

In addition, when you visit the Network our servers automatically collect Personal Information describing your use of the Network, including the Content accessed by you, page/screen visits, length of time viewing a certain page or program, how the Content is viewed, and your online behavior generally. You may also be asked to voluntarily rate the Content you view on the Network, or send us Personal information via messaging (e.g. email, SMS, MMS, or other technologies).

On some occasions, you may submit Personal Information about other people. For example, you might submit a person’s name, mailing and/or e-mail address to send a gift or electronic greeting card. The types of personally identifiable information that may be collected about other people at these pages include: recipient’s name, address, e-mail address and telephone number.

We also may collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you use or access the Network, including without limitation: the type of computer, mobile or other device you are using (e.g., the make, model, settings, specifications and geographic location of you and/or your computer, mobile or other device), the type of browser you are using; the type of operating system you are using; the IP address of any of your computer(s) which may be used to access the Network; the domain name of your Internet service provider); date/time stamp; pixel tags; pages visited, time of visits, content viewed, ads viewed; the site(s), application(s), destination(s), and/or service(s) you arrived from; and any other clickstream data.

If you choose to access, visit and/or use any third party social networking service(s) that may be integrated with the Network, we may receive personally identifiable information and other information about you and your computer, mobile or other device that you have made available to those services, including information about your contacts on those services. For example, some social networking services allow you to push content from the Network to your contacts or to pull information about your contacts so you can connect with them on or through the Network. Some social networking services also will facilitate your registration for the Network or enhance or personalize your experience on the Network. Your decision to use a social networking service in connection with the Network is voluntary. However, you should make sure you are comfortable with the information your third party social networking services may make available to the Network by visiting those services’ privacy policies and/or modifying your privacy settings directly with those services. We reserve the right to use, transfer, assign, sell, share, and provide access to all personally identifiable information and other information about you and your computer, mobile or other device that we receive through third-party social networking services in the same ways described in this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Use as all of your other information.

How We Use the Information

The Personal Information we collect is used to afford you an interactive experience when using the Network and to facilitate your participation in our online forums and communities. The non-personally identifiable information we collect is used to improve the design and Content of the Network and to enable us to personalize your experience in the Internet, to analyze usage of the Network to enable the customization of your experience when using the Network. We may use all this information jointly with information received through users’ ratings and with other general information.

Travelspective or its providers (such as mail hosting or customer service assistance) may store the Personal Information and non-personally identifiable information, and may share such information with third parties as necessary to process your transactions and provide access to the Network by you and your Subaccount holders. Travelspective may also use this information for internal review and analysis of the Network.

Personal Information and non-personally identifiable information may be shared with our distributors, agents, sponsors, advertisers, subsidiaries, affiliates, and people hired by Travelspective for several reasons, including without limitation: to verify your eligibility to receive access to the Network; to verify whether the information holds the requirements to fulfill your requests for our products, programs, and services; to verify the status of your Registered Account; to analyze usage patterns; to analyze usage of particular items of content; to monitor how often certain Content is watched; to customize your use of the Network based on your viewing patterns of the Content and areas of interest; to offer services and/or products that may be of interest to you; to scrub e-mail lists; and to provide customer service assistance.

We may also share with partner companies, prospective partners or third parties such information about your features, your data and about usage of particular items of the Content, such as how often and for how long a particular item of Content was watched or accessed.

We may use the Personal Information you submitted to contact you and answer your questions about our offers, to solve issues relating to the Network, and to give you information about changes and updates to the Network, about other system requirements, your Registered Account with us or about our subscriber agreements. Travelspective sometimes uses this Personal Information to get in touch with you, such as to notify you when you have won one of our contests, sweepstakes, or promotions.

Distributors, agents and contractors of TravelspectiveE who have access to Personal Information are required to protect this information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy by, for example, not using the information for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for Travelspective.

We may disclose Personal Information, whenever required by law, for instance, in response to a court order or a subpoena, or in response to a request from a law enforcement authority. We also may transfer such information to a successor of Travelspective or any person or entity that acquires ownership or control of Travelspective or the Network via any means. In such event, you recognize that such successors, individual or entity may make changes or modifications to this Privacy Policy, and, in this case, Travelspective will notify you about the assignment of such information to its successors or to any individual or entity which acquires ownership or control of Travelspective or the Network, by any means.

Although we try to take measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, because no data transmission is completely secure, and no system of physical or electronic security is completely impenetrable, we cannot guarantee that the Personal Information that we collect will never be disclosed. You may be subject to disclosures beyond our willingness, e.g., if third parties defraud your identity to have access to this Personal Information. By using the Network you agree to assume all risk in connection with the information sent to us or collected by us when you access, visit and/or use the Network, including without limitation your Personal Information, and we are not responsible for the loss of such information or the consequences thereof.

The Network will not use or transfer the Personal Information you provide us differently from the above mentioned ways, otherwise, the Network will give you the option to choose the use of said information.

The Network offer you products, programs or Networks we believe are of your interest, as well as give information about special offers and promotions and newsletters, about Travelspective and/or the Network. If at any time you wish to opt out of receiving promotional materials, you can go to the Profiles section in the Settings section of the Network. Please keep in mind that opting out of promotional e-mails will not prevent you from receiving transactional e-mail correspondence related to, without limitation, the Network, your Registered Account and/or any Subaccounts. You should note that in some instances, certain information or services can only be provided to you if Personal Information is provided. If you elect not to provide such information or opt out of having your information shared, you may not be able to receive certain content or information.

Collection of Information by Third-Party Sites and Sponsors

The Network may contain links to other sites, including without limitation, the sites of our distributors, sponsors and advertisers, whose information practices may be different than ours. Users of this Network should consult the other sites’ terms of use and privacy policies as we have no control over information that is submitted to, and/or collected by, these third parties.

Travelspective may disclose Personal Information to third parties that provide us with services, such as technical maintenance, market research, community and forums management, shopping, and other classified ads functionality, but only for the purpose of and to the extent necessary to provide those services.

We may offer Content (e.g., contests, sweepstakes, or promotions) that is sponsored by or co-branded with identified third parties. By virtue of these relationships, the third parties may obtain Personal Information that visitors voluntarily submit as a result of participation in such content or activities. Travelspective holds no control over or liability for these parties’ use of this information and does not keep it under any surveillance whatsoever.
