Privacy Policy

Last Updated on: May 25, 2018

Welcome to the Privacy Policy for @TravelDeals!

@TravelDeals is committed to protecting the privacy and security of website visitors and email subscribers. Additionally, @TravelDeals is vigorously opposed to SPAM! We work hard to ensure that every one of our email subscribers has properly opted-in to receive our emails, and we make sure our subscribers can easily opt-out with a link in every email.

With regards to Privacy, Security and SPAM… We fully support the European Union’s (EU) recently enacted General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Together with additional privacy legislation and initiatives, our goal is to be as transparent as possible with our endeavors. Following a strong recommendation from the GDPR, we great simplified our Privacy Policy, making it much easier to read and understand.

Coming Soon – Privacy FAQ

Let’s be honest, Privacy Policies are not the most exciting documents. To help humanize it a bit, we’re working on a Privacy Policy FAQ! You can help build it!

     Third Party Web Tracking Tools

@TravelDeals uses various marketing tools that help us create a better user experience for people visiting our site. These tools allow us to look at aggregated data such as scrolling patterns and clicks, and they allow us to run tests to determine which pages result in the best actions. However, your personally identifiable information is not used by any of these tools. We use the following third-party service providers for tracking:

Google Analytics: Google Analytics is a web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic. Google uses the data collected to track and monitor the use of our service. This data is shared with other Google services. Google may use the collected data to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network.

You can opt-out of having your activity on the service made available to Google Analytics by installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. The add-on prevents the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js, analytics.js, and dc.js) from sharing information with Google Analytics about visits activity.
