What information do we collect?
We collect information in a few different ways:
- When you give it to us or give us permission to obtain it
When you sign up for or use our products, you voluntarily give us certain information. This can include your name, profile photo, comments, likes, the email address or phone number you used to sign up, and any other information you provide us. If you’re using Trip Logger on your mobile device, you can also choose to provide us with location data. And if you choose to buy something on Trip Logger , you provide us with payment information, contact information (ex., address and phone number), and what you purchased. If you buy something for someone else on Trip Logger, you’d also provide us with their shipping details and contact information.
You also may give us permission to access your information in other services. For example, you may link your Facebook or Twitter account to Trip Logger, which allows us to obtain information from those accounts (like your friends or contacts). The information we get from those services often depends on your settings or their privacy policies, so be sure to check what those are.
- We also get technical information when you use our products
Whenever you use a website, mobile application, or other internet service, there’s certain information that almost always gets created and recorded automatically. The same is true when you use our products. Here are some of the types of information we collect:
- Log data. When you use Trip Logger , our servers automatically record information (“log data”), including information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website or your mobile app sends when you’re using it. This log data may include your Internet Protocol address, the address of the web pages you visited that had Trip Logger features, browser type and settings, the date and time of your request, how you used Trip Logger , and cookie data.
- Device information. In addition to log data, we may also collect information about the device you’re using Trip Logger on, including what type of device it is, what operating system you’re using, device settings, unique device identifiers, and crash data. Whether we collect some or all of this information often depends on what type of device you’re using and its settings. For example, different types of information are available depending on whether you’re using a Mac or a PC, or an iPhone or an Android phone. To learn more about what information your device makes available to us, please also check the policies of your device manufacturer or software provider.
- Our partners and advertisers may share information with us
We may get information about you and your activity off Trip Logger from advertisers, partners and other third parties we work with. For example:
- Some websites or apps use Trip Logger features like our “Save” button. If so, we may collect log information (described above) from those sites or apps.
- Online advertisers typically share information with the websites or apps where they run ads to measure and/or improve those ads. We also receive this information, which may include information like whether clicks on ads led to purchases or a list of criteria to use in targeting ads.
How do we use the information we collect?
We use the information we collect to provide our products to you and make them better, develop new products, and protect Trip Logger and our users. For example, we may log how often people use two different versions of a product, which can help us understand which version is better.
If you make a purchase on Trip Logger , we’ll save your payment information and contact information so that you can use them the next time you want to buy something on Trip Logger.
We also use the information we collect to offer you customized content, including:
- Showing you ads you might be interested in. For example, if you purchased a camping tent on Trip Logger, we may show you ads for other related products.
We also use the information we collect to:
- Send you updates (such as when certain activity, like comments, happens on Trip Logger), newsletters, marketing materials and other information that may be of interest to you. For example, depending on your email notification settings, we may send you weekly updates that include Posts you may like. You can decide to stop getting these updates by updating your account settings (or through other settings we may provide).
- Help your friends and contacts find you on Trip Logger. For example, if you sign up using a Facebook account, we may help your Facebook friends find your account on Trip Logger when they first sign up for Trip Logger. Or, we may allow people to search for your account on Trip Logger using your email address.
- Respond to your questions or comments.
The information we collect may be “personally identifiable” (meaning it can be used to specifically identify you as a unique person) or “non-personally identifiable” (meaning it can’t be used to specifically identify you). We use both types of information, and combinations of both types, as described above. We may use or store information wherever Trip Logger does business, including countries outside your own.
What choices do you have about your information?
Our goal is to give you simple and meaningful choices over your information. If you have a Trip Logger account, many of the choices you have on Trip Logger are built directly into the product or your account settings. For example, you can:
- Close your account at any time. When you close your account, we’ll deactivate it and remove your posts and boards from Trip Logger. We may retain archived copies of your information as required by law or for legitimate business purposes (including to help address fraud and spam).
You may have choices available to you through the device or software you use to access Trip Logger. For example:
- The browser you use may provide you with the ability to control cookies or other types of local data storage.
- Your mobile device may provide you with choices around how and whether location or other data is shared with us.
To learn more about these choices, please see the information provided by the device or software provider.
How and when do we share information?
Anyone can see the public activity (posts, trip logs, comments, etc.) you create, and the profile information you give us. We may also make this public information available through what are called “APIs” (basically a technical way to share information quickly).
When we have your consent. This includes sharing information with other services (like Facebook or Twitter) when you’ve chosen to link to your Trip Logger account to those services or publish your activity on Trip Logger to them. For example, you can choose to publish your posts or trip logs to Facebook or Twitter.
- When you buy something on Trip Logger using your credit card, we share your credit card information, contact information, and other information about the transaction with the merchant you’re buying from. The merchants treat this information just as if you had made a purchase from their website directly, which means their privacy policies and marketing policies apply to the information we share with them.
- If you buy something on Trip Logger using Apple Pay, your credit card number is not shared with the merchant, but contact and transaction information is still shared.
- Online advertisers typically use third party companies to audit the delivery and performance of their ads on websites and apps. We also allow these companies to collect this information on Trip Logger .
- If we believe that disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request; to protect the safety, rights, or property of the public, any person, or Trip Logger ; or to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.
- We may engage in a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, reorganization, or similar transaction or proceeding that involves the transfer of the information described in this Policy.
- If Trip Logger is sold, all of the same access that we have to data would be available to the new ownership of the company.
We may also share aggregated or non-personally identifiable information with our partners, advertisers or others. For example, we may tell an advertiser on Trip Logger how many people saved something they shared, or the percentage of people who click on a post after viewing it.
Our policy on children’s information
Trip Logger is not directed to children under 13. If you learn that your minor child has provided us with personal information without your consent, please contact us.
How do we make changes to this policy?
We may change this policy from time to time, and if we do we’ll post any changes on this page. If you continue to use Trip Logger after those changes are in effect, you agree to the revised policy. If the changes are significant, we may provide more prominent notice or get your consent as required by law.
