Data Collected Via Technology

As you use the Service, our application (which is hosted by a third party) collects certain information from you, including your Internet protocol (IP) address and the browser that you use to visit the Site. FlipFlap Traveler may also store a small text file called a "Cookie" on your computer to store your login information (if any) and your personal preferences for the Service. FlipFlap Traveler may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them). While you will still be able to use the Service if you disable Cookies in your browser, certain parts of the Service may not function correctly.
We may collect technical information about how you access the Site (including, but not limited to, through third party geo-location services, cell phone tower information, and other sources) in order to identify your geographic location ("Geographic Information").
Since the foregoing information is collected when you are signed into the Service as a registered user, this information may be associated by us with Personal Information that we have collected from you.

Data From Other Sources

We may receive Personal Information about you from third parties (such as providers of Third Party Services), via the Service, telephone, email, or fax. We may add such data to the Personal Information we collect from you.

Our Use Of data

In general, Personal Information you submit to us is used by us to provide the Service to you, respond to requests that you make, to improve the Service, and to offer you additional information, opportunities, and functionality. You may choose to submit Personal Information to us through the Service in order to participate in third party contests, promotions, and offerings; we will share with such third party the Personal Information you provide to us. We may also use your Personal Information to provide you with updates about the Service and electronic newsletters, promotional e-mails, and surveys. You may opt-out of such promotional communications as set forth in Next Section, below.
If you provide us with your e-mail contact list, we will use such third-party e-mail addresses solely as you direct (e.g., to send such third parties your Content through the Service). We will not otherwise use such third-party e-mail addresses, unless we obtain such e-mail addresses through other lawful means (e.g., such third parties register with us for the Service).
If you provide feedback to us, we may use and disclose such feedback for any purpose, provided we will not associate such feedback with your Personal Information. We will collect any information contained in such communication and will treat the Personal Information in such communication in accordance with this Privacy Policy.
We may create Anonymous Information records from Personal Information by excluding information (such as your name) that makes the Personal Information personally identifiable to you. We may use this Anonymous Information to analyze usage patterns so that we may enhance the Service. We reserve the right to use and disclose Anonymous Information to third parties in our discretion.

Links to Other Websites

Our provision of links to other websites or locations, including links to Third Party Services to provide you with account registration options, is for your convenience and does not signify our endorsement of such other websites, locations or their contents. For example, we may provide links to third-party partners who may offer you contests or promotions that may be co-branded with FlipFlap Traveler. If you leave our Site to enter into such offerings, you acknowledge that any Personal Information or Content you provide to such third party will be subject to the third party's privacy policy and website terms of use, and not to this Privacy Policy or the FlipFlap Traveler Service Agreement.
