Privacy statement

Of cookies and whatnot

Thank you for visiting the Travelfish website. Your privacy is important to us and to inform you of how your privacy is protected, we provide this notice.

The Information We Collect

We may collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit many of our web pages such as the type of browser you are using (e.g., Opera, Mozilla, Internet Explorer), the type of operating system you are using, (e.g., Linux, Windows XP) and the domain name of your Internet service provider.

In some cases, we collect information regarding what pages within the site you look at, how long you look at them for and how many times you look at them.

If you choose to become a member of the site, your username, password and email address is retained by us. Subsequent to this, any comments, ratings or other contributions you make to the site are recorded and tied to this information.

How We Use the Information

We may use this information to determine how this website is being used, and to gauge popularity of different parts of the site.

To determine how many times specific sections of the site are viewed so we can calculate the popularity of different establishments and so on.

We may use this information to track abuse if it occurs.

We will disclose information we maintain when required to do so by law, for example, in response to a court order. We also may disclose such information in response to a law enforcement agency's request.

Your personal information will NOT be shared with any other third party without your explicit permission.

If you choose to contact an accommodation source via our email form, this email is not kept and/or copied by us for our purposes.

Cookies

We do use cookies to store information, such as your personal preferences when you visit our site. This could include only showing you a popup once in your visit, or the ability to login to some of our features, such as forums.

We also use third party advertisements on travelfish.org to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP , the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).

We also may use DART cookies for ad serving through Google's DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests ("interest based targeting"). The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history (For example, if you have been viewing sites about visiting Bangkok, you may see Bangkok hotel advertisements when viewing a non-related site, such as on a site about current affairs). DART uses "non personally identifiable information". It does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers. You can opt-out of this ad serving on all sites using this advertising by visiting http://www.doubleclick.com/

Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements, a new cookie will be added.

You can chose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
