Your Privacy

 

EFravel.com, EFravel, INC ("we" or "EFravel.com") is dedicated to

protecting your personal information and informing you about how we

use it. This privacy policy only applies to transactions and

activities and data gathered on the EFravel.com site. Please review

this privacy policy periodically as we may revise it without notice.

This privacy policy was last revised on August 11, 2007. Each time

you visit the Site or provide us with information, by doing so you

are accepting the practices described in this privacy policy at that

time.

Your IP Address

Like most e-commerce Websites, each time you visit the Site, we

automatically collect your IP address and the web page from which

you came. In order to administer and optimize the Site for you and

to diagnose problems with our Site, we use your IP address to help

identify you and to gather broad demographic information about you.

Cookies

Like most Websites, the Site uses cookies to keep track of your

activity on the Site and enhance your experience on the Site. If you

wish to disable these cookies, the "help" portion of the toolbar on

most browsers will tell you how. However, if you set your browser to

disable cookies, you may not be able to access certain areas on the

Site.

Data We Collect From You

In order to operate the Site and to provide you with information

about products or services that may be of interest to you, we may

collect "personal information" (i.e. information that could be used

to contact you directly (without using the Site) such as full name,

postal address, phone number or email address), "financial

information" (i.e. credit card numbers or passwords) or "demographic

information" (i.e. information that you submit, or that we collect,

that is neither personal information nor financial information; this

may include, but is not limited to, zip code, postal code, hometown,

gender, username, age/birth date, purchase history information,

browsing history information, searching history information,

registration history information, and the content of communications

between you and other members over the Site), subject to the rest of

this paragraph. Demographic information is divided into two

categories: 1) "non-public information", which consists of purchase

history information and one-on-one communications between you and

other users of the Site; and 2) "public information", which consists

of all other demographic information. We ask that you do not enter

personal information or financial information into your “Profile”

(for example, don’t use your address or passcode as your username,

or include your name or address in your written responses), because

if you do then it may be posted publicly on the Site, and the

information will then be treated as "demographic information" that

is "public information." Please note that nowhere on the Site do we

knowingly collect personal information from children under the age

of 18, as we require that all users represent to us that they are at

least 18 years old.

How We Use Personal Information

We use your email address and your other personal information to

help us efficiently operate the Site, to contact you in connection

with your transactions and other activities on the Site (including,

but not limited to, confirmation emails or important news that could

affect your relationship with EFravel.com), and to forward trip

information to you from other EFravel.com users. These types of

communications, are known as "Operational Communications." In some

cases, Operational Communications may also contain commercial

messages, such as banner ads and special offers.

To operate the Site, including processing your transactions and

supporting your activities on the Site, we may share your personal

information with our agents, representatives, contractors and

service providers so they can provide us with support services such

as authorization of credit card transactions, email origination,

receipt or support services, customer relationship management

services, and order fulfillment. We require these entities not to

use your information for any other purpose.

By purchasing, or registering or making reservations for, products

or services offered or sponsored by third parties on the Site, or

electing to receive communications (such as emails or material by

mail) or electing to participate in contests, sweepstakes or other

programs (such as discount or rewards programs), offered or

sponsored by third parties on the Site, you consent to our providing

your personal information to those third parties. Those third

parties may use your personal information in accordance with their

own privacy policies. You will need to contact those third parties

to instruct them directly regarding your preferences for the use of

your personal information by them. Additionally, you agree that we

may use and disclose all such information so submitted to such third

parties in the same manner in which we are entitled to use and

disclose any other information you submit to us.

Any third party with whom we are allowed to share your personal

information is authorized to use your personal information in

accordance with our contractual arrangements with such third parties

and in accordance with their own privacy policies, over which we

have no control, and you agree that we are not responsible or liable

for any of their actions or omissions. Those who contact you will

need to be instructed directly by you regarding your preferences for

the use of your personal information by them.

Please read the information below under the heading "Special Cases

in which we Share Personal and Financial Information" to learn more

ways in which we may share your personal information.

How We Use Financial Data

to bill you for products and services. By making a purchase, or

engaging in any other kind of activity or transaction that uses

financial information, on the Site, you consent to our providing

your financial information to our service providers and to such

third parties as we determine are necessary to support and process

your activities and transactions, as well as to your credit card

financial information when we determine that such disclosure is

necessary to comply with applicable law, to cooperate with law

enforcement or to protect the interests or safety of EFravel.com or

other visitors to the Site. We also may disclose your personal

information or financial information to our subsidiary and parent

companies and businesses, and other affiliated legal entities and

businesses with whom we are under common corporate control. Whenever

subsidiary and affiliated legal entities and businesses that receive

your personal information, financial information, or non-anonymous

information with advertisers on an anonymous and aggregated basis

(i.e., without telling the advertisers your identity). One of the

reasons we may do this is to increase the likelihood that our

advertisers’ goods and services will appeal to you as EFravel user.

Our sharing of demographic information with advertisers is anonymous

(i.e., we do not tell advertisers which particular EFravel.com users

are members of which demographic groups), subject to the rest of

this privacy policy. When you respond to an advertisement, however,

we ask you to remember that if that ad that is targeted to a

demographic group and you decide to give the advertiser your

personal information, then the advertiser may be able to identify

you as being a member of that demographic group.

Our Security Precautions

The Site has security measures in place to protect against the loss,

misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Our

secure server software (SSL) is the industry standard and among the

best software available today for secure commerce transactions. We

encrypt all of your personal and financial information as it travels

over the Internet and we store your financial information on our

servers in encrypted form. Your information may be transferred to

and maintained on computer networks which may be located outside of

the state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction in

which you reside, and the country or jurisdiction in which these

computer networks are located may not have privacy laws as

protective as the laws in your country or jurisdiction.

Changing our Privacy Policy for Previously Gathered Information

If at any point we decide to use particular personally identifiable

information in a manner different from that stated at the time it

was collected, we will notify users by way of an email or by

practices, and how we use your personally identifiable information,

without notice, as described in the first paragraph of this Privacy

Policy, provided that such changes shall only apply to information

gathered on or after the date of the change.
