Privacy Policy

Trip Historic takes your privacy very seriously and we want you to feel comfortable knowing what information we collect and how it is and is not used. This Privacy Policy sets out the type of information collected by Trip Historic and governs the way in which we use it. 

By using the Trip Historic website (the ‘‘Site’’), you permit the collection and use of your personal information as outlined below. You should visit this page periodically to review any changes to the Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy is incorporated into and is subject to the Trip Historic Terms of Service. Your use of the Site and any personal information you provide through the Site or that we collect through your use of the Site are subject at all times to this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Service.


Information We Collect

Trip Historic does not operate a mandatory registration service and does not require users to enter any personal information in order to view the Site or upload an entry of a historical place onto the Site. As such, we do not collect any personal information unless you voluntary decide to enter it, such as entering your name when submitting a user comment about an historical entry or through voluntary user registration.

When you access the Site, we may automatically record certain non-personally-identifiable information from your computer or other device you use to access the Site using different types of tracking technology. This ‘‘automatically collected’’ information may include Internet Protocol address (‘‘IP Address’’), requesting URL, referring URL, a unique device or user ID, system type, the content and pages that you access on the Site, and the dates and times that you visit the Site.


How We Use Your Information

Trip Historic uses the information that you provide or that we collect to operate, maintain, enhance, and provide all of the features and services found on the Site as well as to track user-generated content.

Browser-type related information, IP address, requested URL, referring URL, timestamp data and other automatically collected Information may be used to help us diagnose problems with our server, administer the Site, and otherwise provide service to you. In addition, we use this non-personally identifiable information to perform statistical analyses of user behaviour and characteristics in order to measure interest in and use of the various areas and features of the Site and to inform advertisers (if any) of such information as well as the number of users that have been exposed to, or clicked on, their advertising banners (if any).

 

Transfer of Information

We do not sell, rent, share, trade or give away any of your personal information. Please be aware, however, that any personally identifiable information that you voluntarily choose to display on any publicly available portion of the Site becomes publicly available and may be collected and used by others without restriction.

We may disclose some limited user information to affiliated companies or other businesses or persons to: (1) provide website hosting, maintenance services, serve ads during your visit to the Site; (2) to promote security; (3) to conduct data analysis and create reports; (4) to offer certain functionality and (5) to assist Trip Historic in improving the Site and creating new services features. We require that these parties process such information in compliance with this Privacy Policy, we authorize only a limited use of such information, and we require these parties to use reasonable confidentiality measures.

Trip Historic will disclose information about individual users to governmental or judicial authorities or law enforcement agencies, or to other individuals or entities in response to court orders, or other legal processes. Furthermore, we may share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities or suspected fraud, or to enforce or apply the Trip Historic Terms of Service and this Privacy Policy.

We reserve the right to transfer your personal information in the event of a transfer of ownership of Trip Historic or the Site, such as an acquisition by or merger with another entity.

Trip Historic will notify you when information about you may be provided to third parties in ways other than explained above, and you will have the option to prevent such information sharing.

Controlling Your Personal Information

There is no need to disclose any personal information in order to use or enjoy Trip Historic and the Site. If you do voluntarily disclose personally identifiable information (e.g., your name, e-mail address, telephone number) via messages, postings, or in other areas of the Site, that information, along with any substantive information disclosed in your communication, can be collected and correlated and used by third parties and may result in unsolicited messages from other posters or third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of Trip Historic. Please do not post any personal information on the Site or in other areas that you expect to keep private.

Your privacy is very important to us. Trip Historic uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information, including personally identifiable information, you transmit to Trip Historic, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission of information, Trip Historic makes reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards and we cannot assure you that personally identifiable information that we collect will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Policy. We limit the access to your information to those employees who need access to perform their job function such as our customer service personnel.
