Information Collection Practices
- Types of Information Collected:
What is considered personal information and why would it be collected?
Travel Noire collects personal information only to the extent necessary to deliver the services, products, or information you, or an agent on your behalf, requests.
In order for you to access certain premium services and to purchase products that we offer via our Services, we require you to provide us with certain information that personally identifies you (“Personal Information”). Personal Information includes the following categories of information: (a) Contact Data (such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address, and your phone number); (b) Financial Data (such as your account number, your credit card number, or your billing address); and (c) Demographic Data (such as your zip code). If you communicate with us by e-mail, post messages to any of our chat groups, bulletin boards, or forums, or otherwise complete online forms, surveys, or contest entries, any information provided in such communication may be collected as Personal Information.
Travel Noire, either directly or indirectly collects, holds, uses and discloses, only as necessary the following personal information from customers and others in the course of offering services or providing services to you: full name, age, home address, phone number, e-mail address, and upsell information, where applicable. The collection of this information is done to allow us to provide services to you as requested.
We may also collect personal information, including contact information, if you elect to enter a contest or sweepstakes with us, to subscribe to our newsletter, which we will use only to provide you with the service you have requested (or other substantially similar services directly related to your request).
Travel Noire collects personal information from those individuals applying for employment or similar positions at Travel Noire to the extent necessary to (a) identify the individual and (b) evaluate their suitability for the position applied for. This information may include full name, contact information, educational and employment background, criminal record information, residency and/or citizenship information, and other information necessary for us to screen potential employees and staff.
Where the collection of certain details of your personal information is not required in order to deliver requested services or products, you may forgo providing such details. For example, you may sign up for our electronic marketing and newsletters with only an e-mail address. You may also be entitled, in certain circumstances where verification of your identity is not required, to deal with Travel Noire using a pseudonym. Please ask Travel Noire to advise if the personal information in question is required to complete your request.
Please note that some elements of your personal information may be displayed to others when you voluntarily participate in any of the community aspects of our Sites. Your name, avatar, IP address and comments may be displayed when you publicly review a product or post a comment on one of our Sites. Additional information may be displayed to people when you voluntarily join one of our online communities.
