Privacy Policy

TravelGeni (“TravelGeni”) operates TravelGeni.com and may operate other websites. It is TravelGeni’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Website Visitors
Like most website operators, TravelGeni collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. TravelGeni’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how TravelGeni’s visitors use its website. From time to time, TravelGeni may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
TravelGeni also may collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for users visiting TravelGeni.com website (to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer our sites, to gauge the popularity of content areas, and to gather broad demographic information for prospective advertisers). TravelGeni only discloses the IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the Website.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to TravelGeni’s website choose to interact with TravelGeni in ways that require TravelGeni to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that TravelGeni gathers depends on the nature of the interaction.
For example, visitors who sign up at TravelGeni.com for getting the newsletter (which you can unsubscribe from at any time) are required to provide an email address. Also, if the user decides to engage with TravelGeni in a conversation using the Contact or Submit Content page more details will be asked which can identify those users. Those who engage in transactions with TravelGeni are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, TravelGeni collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with TravelGeni. TravelGeni does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. The visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities. By filling out and submitting the Submit Content form you agree that this information may be displayed publicly – like who is the copyright owner or a certain work and a link back to its location.
Aggregated Statistics
TravelGeni may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. TravelGeni may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, TravelGeni does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using TravelGeni’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
TravelGeni will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone other as described above.
