User Information Collected by Tripology on the Websites

The Marketing Partner, or Tripology on behalf of the Marketing Partner, may contact you with email messages to the email address you provided during registration, with telephone calls, faxes or postal mail directed to the postal mailing address that you supplied. After you opt-in to an advertising offer on the Websites, your Registration Information is also subject to the applicable Marketing Partner’s policies governing use and disclosure of such Registration Information.

Cookies and Passive Data Collection
Pixel tags are tiny graphic files that are included in web pages, HTML-encoded email messages and certain other types of content, which may read cookies.
Pages on the Websites may also contain similar pixel tags that allow us to count users who have visited those pages, to compile aggregated statistics about the Websites usage and to deliver co-branded and other new features and services as they become available. Pixel tags on the Websites may collect information such as a cookie number, time and date of a page view and a description of the page on which the pixel tag resides. We may use information gathered from pixel tags to improve the content of the Websites and email messages, to help us diagnose problems with our servers and other equipment, to administer the Websites, to provide the Services and to provide new or enhanced features or tailored products or services to our users as they become available.
When users visit particular pages within the Websites, personal information may be placed in the URL or in an HTML form POST. This allows customized features for the user. Users should be aware that other websites visited before entering the Websites might place personally identifiable information within a user’s URL during visits to those websites, and Tripology has no control over the practices of such websites. Accordingly, some of this information may be logged by a website that collects URL information that the user visits.
How Tripology Uses the User Information
Tripology generally uses personal information for the purposes of operating the Websites and Services, in the course of sending you promotional and informational communications on behalf of Tripology and Marketing Partners, and in the course of providing information to various third party advertisers and marketers. For example, where a user has submitted Registration Information on the Websites, the Tripology Advertising Network (including Tripology, acting on behalf of Marketing Partners) may send, and the users may receive, correspondence, including postal mail, email, telephone calls and faxes regarding products or services offered by members of the Tripology Advertising Network. We may also use Registration Information to send sales lead information to our third party advertising partners or advertising brokers who may use the sales lead information to contact users regarding products or services. Users who submit Registration Information on the Websites consent to be contacted by advertisers regarding products or services, and such advertisers may send, and the users may receive, correspondence, including postal mail, email, telephone calls and faxes regarding other third party advertisers’ products or services.
We also may use personal information of users to process transactions on the Websites, to provide support for the Services, to otherwise respond to users’ requests and inquiries, to maintain a record of dealings with our users, to develop new products and services and to send information regarding products and services that we or our advertisers think our users might find of interest or useful. When we use your personal information in our marketing efforts, we provide you with choices (see “Opt-Out,” below).
Information Sharing and Disclosure
We may share, license or sell your information to third parties for various marketing purposes, including their online (e.g., email marketing) and offline (e.g., telemarketing, text messaging (where and to the extent permitted by law), skip tracing and direct mail) marketing programs.
Without limiting the foregoing, by providing Registration Information on the Websites, you agree that such act constitutes an inquiry and/or application for purposes of the Amended Telemarketing Sales Rule (16 CFR §310 et seq.), as amended from time to time (the “Rule”) and applicable state do-not-call regulations. As such, notwithstanding that your telephone number may be listed on the Federal Trade Commission’s Do-Not-Call List, and/or on applicable state do-not-call lists, we retain the right to contact you via telemarketing in accordance with the Rule and the applicable state do-not-call regulations.
We may also transmit your personal information to advertisers and advertising brokers when you provide information requested on the Websites in response to an offer. By submitting Registration Information on the Websites, you expressly consent to the transmission of Registration Information to Tripology’s Marketing Partners, third party advertising partners, and other third party marketers. When you consent to transmit your personal information to Tripology or a third party by providing information requested by the Websites, you also consent to being contacted by postal mail, fax, telephone or email to any of the addresses or numbers that you provide. The personal information transmitted to advertisers may include any of your Registration Information.
Tripology may incorporate third party applications, software, or services (collectively, “Third Party Services”) into the Websites, including but not limited to online payment services. All information provided to third-party entities through Third Party Services is subject to those entities’ privacy policies and other applicable policies. You understand and agree that Tripology and other members of the Tripology Advertising Network do not have any control over the privacy and security practices and policies of Third Party Services, and do not have any control over payment or transaction processes of Third Party Services. We urge you to review each such third parties’ privacy policies, and other applicable policies, before consenting to the transfer of your personal information and before agreeing to complete any payment transaction on the Websites using Third Party Services.
We may provide personal information, under confidentiality agreements, to third parties who work on behalf of, or with, Tripology to assist us in performing non-advertising functions necessary to operate our business, such as validation services.
In order to provide targeted advertising offers to you, we may on occasion supplement the personal information you submit to us with information from third-party sources:
We may use third-party services to verify your address and telephone number in order to ensure your eligibility to participate in certain advertising offers.
Enhancement of Profile Information
We may purchase marketing data from third parties and add it to our existing user database, to better target our advertising and to provide pertinent offers in which we think you would be interested. To enrich our profiles of individual customers, we may tie this information to the personally identifiable information they have provided to us.
We may pre-populate the forms on the Websites with your personal information, provided, however, that telephone number and email address will not be pre-populated by Tripology and must be re-entered each time by the user on applicable third party registration/order pages. (Note, however, that your personal information may be pre-populated as a function or feature of your browser, browser plugin, software, or other application that you use in conjunction with your use of the Websites). Tripology may not show all pre-populated forms to users. This personal information is not submitted to Tripology, the Tripology Advertising Network, or any a third party until you submit the personal information by responding in a way that indicates an interest in the applicable offer, such as clicking the applicable submit button.
A user’s personal information, usage history and other collected information may result in the presentation of specifically tailored special offers.
Aggregate Non-Identifying Statistical Reports
We may also produce aggregate reports for Marketing Partners and other third parties. For example, we may report to Marketing Partners and other third parties the number of users who clicked on an advertising offer, the average length of time users viewed a particular page on the Websites or the number of users who visited different portions of the Websites. These aggregate reports do not include personal information about users or any specific user’s online usage patterns. We may also provide this aggregate information to third parties for performing optimization of the Websites.
Information about our users including, without limitation, personal information, may be disclosed as part of a merger, acquisition, debt financing or sale of company assets, as well as in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership in which personal information could be transferred to third parties as one of Tripology’s business assets (each, a “Business Transfer”). We will make reasonable efforts to notify all users of any Business Transfer, and any users so notified may choose to remove any of their Registration Information at that time.
During use of the Websites, you may be given the opportunity to sign up for special offers and/or promotional advertisements from the Tripology Advertising Network. If you are presented with such an optional advertisement, you can provide information or respond by activating a data entry element to indicate your interest in the offer. We may pre-populate the webpage of the offer with your personal data, which may then be supplied to the applicable Marketing Partner, provided, however, that telephone number and email address will not be pre-populated by Tripology and must be re-entered each time by the user on the Websites. When you submit your Registration Information, Tripology may share some or all of your Registration Information with the Tripology Advertising Network and send advertisements to you on behalf of Marketing Partners. Tripology may share some or all of your Registration Information with third party advertising partners and other third party marketers that may send advertisements to you. Do not indicate interest in an offer by submitting Registration Information if you do not wish to send personal information to and do not want to receive advertisements from the Tripology Advertising Network, its third party marketing partners, and other third party advertisers.
