Information Gathered and How It Is Used
TravelGuidesFree.com collects information from users of its Website, potential clients, prospective employees, and alliance relationships to name a few. This information includes details that have been provided to us through use of the site. When a user requests a visitor’s guide or brochure from TravelGuidesFree.com we provide that user’s information to the tourism board that publishes the material so that they may fulfill the order. Since these providers give us the materials that TravelGuidesFree.com promotes and distributes, we also provide them with information about users who request their guides. TravelGuidesFree will never provide personally-identifiable information to a third party other than the partner that is publishing materials that the user has requested.
Users of TravelGuidesFree.com may opt out of sending their email to advertisers on the check out page of the website. TravelGuidesFree.com does reserve the right to contact users who have requested materials from the website so that we may validate orders. The company will not ship materials to people whose email addresses do not work. TravelGuidesFree.com may retain this information and the information that has been provided to us for our internal review, business development, research, and marketing.
We may also use this information to solicit e-mail for business development, research, marketing or promotional purposes or press inquiries. It is our practice to provide visitors with an opportunity to opt out of e-mail communications and remove them from this distribution list by sending us an e-mail to remove. We store this information in our database and do not plan to share it with third parties, except as described in this policy. If we ever need to share this information with other third parties, we will notify visitors individually. At any time, visitors can remove their name and related information from our database, and we will provide them with a choice to opt-out if they don’t want their information used for any purpose or a particular purpose. Visitors can review and update your information by contacting us via email.
TravelGuidesFree uses the customer information provided when requesting brochures to measure whether users, in aggregate, visit the destinations that they have requested information about and other destinations that they, in aggregate, have not requested information about. Travel Guides Free may use this aggregated information to measure the effectiveness of travel marketing / tourism campaigns but the company will never share any personally-identifiable information as part of any research, reporting or analysis. We simply collect, analyze and report on the effectiveness of travel marketing campaigns by measuring how our collective customers respond or don’t respond to travel marketing messages. Nor will Travel Guides Free sell any personally-identiable information to a third party or non-affiliated business.
