If you have questions or concerns regarding this statement, you should first contact the Simple Tours Privacy Department by sending an email to email@example.com.
I. Information Collection & Use
The Simple Tours service requires a login in order to provide you with a personalized account. During our account registration process, we will collect an e-mail address and password from you. You must provide all of this information in order to obtain an account. After completing our registration form, you will receive a welcome email describing your new Simple Tours account, and how to access that account.
Simple Tours will collect personally identifiable information (billing address, phone number, etc.) and keep this information on file in our secure server. This information is only used to verify credit card authenticity, and issue invoices as per your service agreement. Upon discontinuation of Simple Tours service, your information will be immediately destroyed on our billing system.
If we are unable to process your subscription for a given month, this information, along with your account information, may be used to contact you.
"Email This Tour" Tools
Simple Tours provides a number of tools that will allow you or others to promote your virtual tours over email. Email addresses entered into these forms are not stored in our database, but may be stored in our system logs in text format to assist us in tracking down abusive users (users flooding the system), or using these tools for spamming. We will never contact addresses logged in this manner.
Hosted Virtual Tours
When accessing web pages on the SimpleTours.com domain, Simple Tours may log your IP address, access URL, time of access, browser type, and referral URL in order to provide us with internal information regarding site traffic statistics. This information may also be used to identify users who are using the service for spam or other activity that is deemed in conflict with our Terms of Service. This information is used in the aggregate, and is never linked back to any personally identifiable information.
II. Uses of Information
Simple Tours collects the aforementioned personally identifiable information in order to provide you with a service that allows you to maintain an online presence. Various features in our account management system will, at your discretion, display your name, or adjust the date and time of events based on the local of our servers. The Simple Tours Website Account Management interface will always give you an option before any piece of your personally identifiable information is presented on your virtual tours, and situations where information will be published is made clear in various spots in the interface (for example, your name is displayed on the virtual tours, and notice of this is given to you within the interface for that tool).
Simple Tours also uses information collected through its service to send out notifications regarding service related issues (such as maintenance periods, billing problems, account expirations, and other items that may impact service). We do not send contact information unless the matter is deemed urgent, and most communication will occur through your Simple Tours Website Account Management interface.
Information collected through our service logs is used only to identify potential cases of abuse and establish statistical information regarding web site traffic. This statistical information is not aggregated in such a way that would identify any particular user of the system.
Simple Tours is the sole owner of information collected on http://www.simpletours.com/. Your information is never shared, leased or given to any third parties in ways other than disclosed in this privacy statement.
III. Information Security
We store all user information in secure databases protected via a variety of industry-standard access controls. Secure passwords, SSL encryption, disk-based encryption, firewalls, and other measures are in place that help us protect your data. This data is accessed only for the purposes specified in this privacy statement.
If you have any questions about security on our Web site, you can Contact Us.
IV. Access to Personally Identifiable Information
All information that Simple Tours stores related to your account, including any billing information, is accessible through your Simple Tours Website Account Management interface. You may use this interface to adjust your information at any time, and we encourage you to keep this information up to date so that your customer service requests and billing processes operate efficiently.
To remove your personally identifiable information from our system, submit your account for deactivation. Your personal information will be removed immediately, though your actual e-mail/login will remain reserved on our system until re-collection.
V. Communications from Simple Tours
We will send you strictly service-related announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email. Generally, you may not opt-out of these communications, which are not promotional in nature. If you do not wish to receive them, you have the option to deactivate your account by contacting us.
Upon issuing a customer support request to Simple Tours, we may use your information and email address to contact you regarding your inquiry.
VI. Information Sharing and Disclosure
Aggregate Information (non-personally identifiable)
Aggregated demographic information does not identify individual users. This information contains statistics related to traffic and the geographic location of our customers.
We do not link aggregate user data with personally identifiable information.
Credit Card Processing
You will submit your billing information to our credit card processing agent for approval or when you update your billing information. This company does not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any purpose other than billing.
Only non-promotional service announcements, as described in the above section, will be issued without prior authorization.
Upon deactivating your Simple Tours account, you will receive no further communication from us (service announcements included).
IX. Log Files
As is true of most Web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users' movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.
We do not link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information.
Like most web sites, we use small bits of data called cookies stored on users' computers to simulate a continuous connection. Cookies let us 'remember' information about your preferences and passwords and allow you to move within our Service without reintroducing yourself. Members who disable cookies will not be able to use Simple Tours services, as they are required to maintain your login to our service within a browser session. Disabling cookies does not prevent you from accessing virtual tours published under our system, though some features of those virtual tours may be degraded.
These cookies can be tied back to personally identifiable information only in the event that you are logged in to our service. If you are logged in to our service, the cookies on your computer will uniquely identify your account within our system.
XII. Links to Other Sites
This Web site contains links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by Simple Tours. Please be aware that we, Simple Tours, are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites.
We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information.
This privacy statement applies only to information collected by this Web site and our virtual tours.
XIII. Business Transitions
In the event Simple Tours goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, your personally identifiable information will likely be among the assets transferred. You will be notified via email of any such change in ownership or control of your personal information.
We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Web site.
XVI. Changes in this Privacy Statement
We reserve the right to modify this privacy statement at any time, so please review it frequently. If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here, by email, or by means of a notice within your Simple Tours Website Account Management interface.
