Our staff may also use the information collected through this website to seek further clarification or additional information in order to help meet our customers’ requirements.

During registration, we ask our visitors to provide certain contact information, but we never sell or give away this information to any other third party. It is only gathered to contact the users about services on our site for which an expression of interest has been logged with us. It is optional, however, for visitors to provide demographic information (income level, gender, etc.), or any unique identifiers (username, password, etc.). Giving additional information helps provide a more personalized experience on our site but is not required.

We require information from the user on our order form. A user must provide contact information (such as name, email, and contact address) and possibly financial information (such as credit card number, expiration date). If we have trouble processing an order, we use the information provided in the order form to contact the user. This information is used for billing purposes and delivering travel documentation.  When we transfer and receive certain types of sensitive information such as financial information, we redirect visitors to a secure server and will notify visitors of this feature through a pop-up screen on our site.

We publish a newsletter, and we never sell or share our subscribers’ email addresses.  We also operate online surveys, and again we never sell or share our subscribers’ email addresses. If you would like to receive a copy of our newsletter or participate in our surveys, we require an email address from you, information that allows us to verify you are the owner of the email address provided and agree to our use of this data.  We do this through our online order form as outlined above although, the use of your data can be revoked at any time, for example via the ‘unsubscribe’ link on our newsletters or surveys.
