Your Privacy is exactly that... yours!
We at ExpeditionTrips respect your privacy, and we work hard to earn and keep your trust. Personal information that you choose to submit to us will only be used to enhance your ExpeditionTrips experience and facilitate your trip planning processes. Please take a few moments to read through this page so you understand how we use the information you provide.
We will never sell, trade, or rent your personal information to third parties for marketing purposes, period! If you book a trip through ExpeditionTrips, we will convey passenger and travel details to travel suppliers so they can deliver the services you have booked. We may share general information—such as 15% of our members enjoy SCUBA diving or 61% of our members enjoy hiking, for example—but only in an aggregate, non-identifiable format. In the unlikely event that ExpeditionTrips or its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.
When you register with ExpeditionTrips, we may ask you to provide contact information (e.g., your name, e-mail address, password, username, etc.), demographic information (e.g., ZIP code), and destination/activity interest information. This information is used for: (1) personal identification, (2) to notify you of special offers as well as promotional materials that may match your particular interests (if you opt in for our Just-Released Offers and/or Newsletter mailing lists), (3) to contact you for customer service when necessary, (4) to create personalized content and services and attract specific travel offerings, (5) to compile data to attract advertisers and to generate market research and reports, and (6) to send out our newsletter and occasional site update notices. You can always opt out of receiving such communications (see our 'Opt Out' policy).
The contact and travel preference information collected during registration and updated over time as you use our site is stored in your Member Profile, which is primarily intended to assist you in making reservations and personalizing the ExpeditionTrips site for your benefit. It is also used to offer certain travel opportunities that match your preferences (see 'Just-Released Offers' below). You can update your profile at any time simply by clicking on the ‘Log In’ link and then clicking 'Edit My Profile’.
The information you enter during registration is used to notify you of promotions that match your destination and activity interests. Your e-mail address is required to notify you when such offers are made available.
On certain areas of our site—such as within 'Trip Details' pages—there are contact forms where you can request additional information. In such circumstances you are required to enter your contact information, such as e-mail address and/or phone number, in order for us to fulfill your request.
ExpeditionTrips sometimes sponsors contests to give away travel opportunities. During such contests, contact information and answers to survey questions are collected. Such information is used in accordance with our Registration and Member Profile policies described above. Contact information is also used to contact winners.
We value the opinions of our site visitors. Occasionally ExpeditionTrips may post surveys on the site to gather feedback or suggestions. Contact information may be requested to identify you; however, surveys are optional so any information you submit will be done so voluntarily. Survey results will be aggregated and used to make improvements to ExpeditionTrips, its site, and general policies and procedures.
ExpeditionTrips records Internet Provider Addresses used to access our service along with the dates and times of access. This information is used to track and analyze Web traffic trends (such as what type of browser you are using), administer our site, track users' movement within the site, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personal information.
This Privacy Commitment applies to the ExpeditionTrips site only. This site contains links to other sites, and ExpeditionTrips is not responsible for any other site or its policies. When you click through to other wesites, you should be aware that you are leaving this site; we recommend that you become familiar with other site’s privacy policies.
