About Us

Triporati is a new and innovative way to explore and discover destinations that are just right for you. Triporati is the first travel site to offer a personalized recommendation powered by expert travel advice.

Triporati believes in protecting your privacy. This privacy policy outlines our general policy and practices for implementing our privacy policy, including the types of information we gather, how we use it and the notice and choice affected individuals have regarding our use of and their ability to correct that information. This privacy policy applies to all personal information received by Triporati whether in electronic, paper or verbal format.

Definitions

"Personal Information" or "Information" means information that (1) is transferred from the EU to the United States; (2) is recorded in any form; (3) is about, or pertains to a specific individual; and (4) can be linked to that individual.

Principles

  • Notice

    Triporati shall inform an individual of the purpose for which it collects and uses the Personal Information and the types of non-agent third parties to which the Triporati discloses or may disclose that Information. Triporati shall provide the individual with the choice and means for limiting the use and disclosure of their Personal Information. Notice will be provided in clear and conspicuous language when individuals are first asked to provide Personal Information to the Triporati, or as soon as practicable thereafter, and in any event before the Triporati uses or discloses the Information for a purpose other than for which it was originally collected.

  • Choice

    Triporati will offer individuals the opportunity to choose (opt out) whether their Personal Information is (1) to be disclosed to a third party or (2) to be used for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual.

  • Onward Transfers

    Prior to disclosing Personal Information to a third party, Triporati shall notify the individual of such disclosure and allow the individual the choice (opt out) of such disclosure. Triporati shall ensure that any third party for which Personal Information may be disclosed subscribes to the Principles or are subject to law providing the same level of privacy protection as is required by the Principles and agree in writing to provide an adequate level of privacy protection.

  • Data Security

    Triporati shall take reasonable steps to protect the Information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. Triporati has put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the Information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration or destruction. Triporati cannot guarantee the security of Information on or transmitted via the Internet.

  • Data Integrity

    Triporati shall only process Personal Information in a way that is compatible with and relevant for the purpose for which it was collected or authorized by the individual. To the extent necessary for those purposes, Triporati shall take reasonable steps to ensure that Personal Information is accurate, complete, current and reliable for its intended use.

  • Access

    Triporati shall allow an individual access to their Personal Information and allow the individual to correct, amend or delete inaccurate information, except where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to the privacy of the individual in the case in question or where the rights of persons other than the individual would be violated.

  • Enforcement

    Triporati uses a self-assessment approach to assure compliance with this privacy policy and periodically verifies that the policy is accurate, comprehensive for the information intended to be covered, prominently displayed, completely implemented and accessible and in conformity with the Principles. We encourage interested persons to raise any concerns using the contact information provided and we will investigate and attempt to resolve any complaints and disputes regarding use and disclosure of Personal Information in accordance with the Principles. If a complaint or dispute cannot be resolved through our internal process, we agree to dispute resolution using (an independent resource mechanism) as a third party resolution provider.

Information Collection and Use

Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide and improve our Site, Application, services, features and content, to administer your use of the Site and Application (together, the "Service") and to enable users to enjoy and easily navigate the Site and Application.

We also use your Personal Information to contact you with newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive such communications from us, please follow the unsubscribe instructions provided in any of the communications. Users may also opt out of emails of this type by notifying Triporati Customer Support at customersupport@triporati.com

From time to time, Triporati or a partner, may sponsor a promotion, survey, sweepstake or contest on Triporati. Members may be asked to provide personal information including name, email address or home address or to answer questions in order to participate. We may transfer personal information to certain ad partners that you have explicitly requested to receive information from. It will be clear at the point of collection who is collecting the personal information and whose privacy statement will apply.

Please note that we may also use your Personal Information to contact you with information related to your use of the Service; you may not opt out of these notifications.

Log Data

When you visit the Site and Application, whether as a Member or a non-registered user just browsing (any of these, a "Triporati User"), our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website ("Log Data"). This Log Data may include information such as your computer's Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type or the webpage you were visiting before you came to our Site and Application, pages of our Site and Application that you visit, the time spent on those pages, information you search for on our Site and Application, access times and dates, and other statistics. We use this information to monitor and analyze use of the Site, Application and the Service and for the Site and Application's technical administration, to increase our Site and Application's functionality and user-friendliness, and to better tailor our Site and Application to our visitors' needs. We do not treat Log Data as Personal Information or use it in association with other Personal Information, though we may aggregate, analyze and evaluate such information for the same purposes as stated above regarding other Non-Identifying Information.

Note, however, that if you have a broadband connection, depending on your individual circumstance, it is possible that your IP Address that we collect,or even perhaps a cookie we use, may contain information that could be deemed identifiable. This is because with some broadband connections your IP Address doesn't change (it is "static") and could be associated with your personal computer. We only use your IP address to report aggregate information on use and to help improve the website.

Use Of Cookies

This website may use a technology called a "cookie". A cookie is a piece of information that our webserver sends to your computer (actually to your browser file) when you access a website.

This Site uses cookies to distinguish you from other users. Some of these cookies are essential to make this Site work properly. Other types of cookie help us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our Site, allow us to improve our Site or the way we provide our service to customers, or are used to provide you with information or offers from Triporati or third parties that may be of interest to you. You can accept or decline cookies at any time by accessing the preference panels from your browser's main menu (usually found under 'Edit', 'Tools' or 'Options'). However, if you choose to remove cookies parts of the Site may not work properly or your use of the Site may be impaired.

This site may use a technology known as web beacons-sometimes called single-pixel gifs -that allow this site to collect web log information. A web beacon is a graphic on a web page or in an e-mail message designed to track pages viewed or messages opened. Web log information is gathered when you visit one of our websites by the computer that hosts our website (called a "webserver"). The webserver automatically recognizes some non-personal information, such as the date and time you visited our site, the pages you visited, the website you came from, the type of browser you are using (e.g., Internet Explorer), the type of operating system you are using (e.g., Windows 2000), and the domain name and address of your Internet service provider (e.g., AOL). We may also include web beacons in promotional e-mail messages in order to determine whether messages have been opened.

Any other information transferred by you in connection with your visit to this site ("Other Information" - that is, information that cannot be used to identify you) may be included in databases owned and maintained by Triporati or its agents. Triporati retains all rights to these databases and the information contained in them. Other Information we collect may include information gathered through our weblogs and cookies.

Third Party Advertising

Ads appearing on this Web site may be delivered to users by Triporati or one of our Web advertising partners. Web publishers, advertisers and ad networks use cookies and data to optimise advertising effectiveness. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement. In this way, ad servers may compile information about where you, or others who are using your computer, saw their advertisements and determine which ads are clicked on. This information allows an ad network to deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. Advertisers' use of cookies is subject to their own privacy policies, not the Triporati Privacy Policy.

One of our Web advertising partners is Google. Google's use of the DART cookie enables it to serve ads to your users based on their visit to your sites and other sites on the Internet. Users may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy.

If you choose to visit an advertiser by "clicking on" a banner ad or other type of advertisement, or click on another third party link, you will be directed to that third party's website. The fact that we link to a website or present a banner ad or other type of advertisement is not an endorsement, authorization or representation of our affiliation with that third party, nor is it an endorsement of their privacy or information security policies or practices. We do not exercise control over third party websites. These other websites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you. Other websites follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the personal information you submit to them. We encourage you to read the privacy policies or statements of the other websites you visit.
