Personal information is data that can be used to identify or contact a single person or a group of people.
Here are some examples of the types of personal information TripCenter may collect and how we may use it:
- When you create a TripCenter ID, make a booking, purchase a service, download a software update, register for a workshop or webinar with TripCenter, contact us or participate in an online survey , we may collect a variety of information, including your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, contact preferences, and credit card information.
- When you share your content with other associates using TripCenter platform and tools or invite others to participate in TripCenter services or forums or workshop and webinars, TripCenter may collect the information you provide about those people such as name, mailing address, email address, and phone number. TripCenter will use such information to fulfill your requests, provide the relevant product or service, or for anti-fraud purposes.
- In certain jurisdictions, we may ask for a government-issued ID in limited circumstances including when setting up an account and activating your account, for the purpose of extending commercial credit, managing reservations, or as required by law.
- The personal information we collect allows us to keep you posted on TripCenter’s latest product announcements, software updates, and upcoming events.
- We also use personal information to help us create, develop, operate, deliver, and improve our products, services, content and advertising, and for loss prevention and anti-fraud purposes.
- We may use your personal information, including date of birth, to verify identity, assist with the identification of users, and to determine appropriate services. For example, we may use date of birth to determine the age of TripCenter account holders.
- From time to time, we may use your personal information to send important notices, such as communications about purchases and changes to our terms, conditions, and policies. Because this information is important to your interaction with TripCenter, you may not opt out of receiving these communications.
- We may also use personal information for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve TripCenter’s products, services, and customer communications.
- If you enter into promotion or contest, we may use the information you provide to administer those programs.
We also collect data in a form that does not, on its own, permit direct association with any specific individual. We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information for any purpose. The following are some examples of non-personal information that we collect and how we may use it:
- We may collect information such as occupation, language, zip code, area code, unique device identifier, referrer URL, location, and the time zone where TripCenter service is used so that we can better understand user behaviour and improve our products, services, and advertising.
- We may collect and store details of how you use our services, including search queries. This information may be used to improve the relevancy of results provided by our services. Except in limited instances to ensure the quality of our services over the Internet, such information will not be associated with your IP address.
If we do combine non-personal information with personal information the combined information will be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined.
Ads that are delivered on TripCenter platform may appear in TripCenter app, affiliated and remarketing campaigns. If you do not wish to receive ads targeted to your interests on TripCenter platform, you can choose to enable limit ad tracking, which shall opt your TripCenter ID out of receiving such ads. If you enable limit ad tracking on your mobile device, third-party apps cannot use the advertising identifier, a non-personal device identifier, to serve you targeted ads. You may still see ads or news based on contexts like your search query or the channel you are reading. In third-party apps, you may see ads based on other information.

TripCenter may use this information in our marketing and advertising services.
In some of our email messages, we use a “click-through URL” linked to content on TripCenter website. When customers click one of these URLs, they pass through a separate web server before arriving at the destination page on our website. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked in this way, you should not click text or graphic links in the email messages.
Pixel tags enable us to send email messages in format customers can read, and they tell us whether mail has been opened. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to customers.
At times TripCenter may make certain personal information available to strategic partners that work with TripCenter to provide products and services, or that help TripCenter market to customers. For example, when you book a service, you authorize TripCenter to exchange the information you provide during the booking process to carry out service. If you are approved for using TripCenter platform, your account will be governed by TripCenter and it’s strategic partners privacy policies. Personal information will only be shared by TripCenter to provide or improve our products, services and advertising; it will not be shared with third parties for their marketing purposes.

These companies are obligated to protect your information and may be located wherever TripCenter operates.
It may be necessary − by law, legal process, litigation, and/or requests from public and governmental authorities within or outside your country of residence − for TripCenter to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate.
We may also disclose information about you if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or protect our operations or users. Additionally, in the event of a reorganization, merger, or sale we may transfer any and all personal information we collect to the relevant third party.
