1. Data Acquisition

In order to help us personalize and continually improve your experience at the Website, we may gather certain types of information. The types of information we gather are:  

  1. Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on the Website, or give us in any other way. For example, we may request that you provide certain personal information, including your name, address, email address, birth date, telephone number, other contact information, country of residence, gender, credit card numbers for purchases and other information from which your identity is confirmed. We may also sometimes afford you the opportunity to provide descriptive, cultural, behavioral, and preferential and/or lifestyle information about yourself, but it is solely up to you whether you furnish such information. If you do provide such information, you are thereby consenting to the use of that information in accordance with the policies and practices described in this Privacy Policy. We may also collect demographic information that is not unique to you such as your ZIP code, age, preferences, location, gender, interests and favorites, and technical data regarding usage, including your device identifier or IP address. Sometimes we collect or may collect a combination of the two types of information. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to use certain features of the website.  Certain personal information may be required from you if you register for a tour through the Website. We use the information that you provide to us for purposes such as responding to your requests, customizing future visits for you, improving our services, and communicating with you, and we may provide such information to third parties for non-commercial purposes. By submitting information relating to a tour registration, you consent to our sharing of such information with third parties as is necessary or convenient for us to complete your registration.
  2. Cookies and Automatic Information: We also receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, we gather, or may gather, certain information about your use of the Website and the Website networking, such as what areas you visit and what services you access. The Company and our partners, affiliates, and analytics or service providers use cookies or similar technologies. These technologies are used in analyzing trends, administering the site, tracking users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by these companies on an individual as well as aggregated basis.  Users can control the use of cookies at the individual browser level; we are not able to respond directly to “do not track” requests. As is true of most web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files.  This information may include Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data.  We may combine this automatically collected log information with other information we collect about you. We do this to improve services we offer you and site functionality.  We may partner with third parties to either display advertising on our website or manage our advertising on other sites. Our third party partners may use technologies such as cookies to gather information about your activities on this website and other sites in order to provide you with advertising based upon your browsing activities and interests.
  3. Email Communications: We store all email or similar electronic correspondence between you and the Website in order to improve your future experiences. We may use your contact information in order to send you email or other communications regarding updates at the Website.
  4. Blog/Testimonials/Photos:  The Website may contain publicly accessible blogs, testimonials, or photo galleries.  You should be aware that any information you provide in these areas may be read, collected and used by others who access them. To request removal of your personal information from a blog, testimonial or photo gallery, contact us at the email address set forth in Section 12 below.  In some cases, we may not be able to remove your personal information, in which case we will let you know if we are unable to do so and why.
