Thank you for visiting a Light of the Traveler website which includes the following web sites listed below (hereinafter, the “Sites”).

Our sites:
https://www.lightofthetraveler.com

Please read this Privacy Policy before using the Sites or submitting any personal information.

Our Sites use cookies. By using our Sites, you accept the privacy practices contained in this Privacy Policy and consent to our use of cookies in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy. These privacy practices may change from time to time, but any changes will be posted. You are encouraged to review this Privacy Policy whenever you visit our Sites to make sure you understand how any personal information you provide will be used.

 

1. What Information Do We Collect?

 

We may collect, store, and use personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information as described in more detail in the sections that follow.

A. Personally Identifiable Information

 

Voluntary submissions of personally identifiable information can occur for various reasons, such as if you request to receive information about our services, if you subscribe to one of our mailing lists, or if you purchase one of our products.

We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal information:

  • information about your computer and about your visits to and use of this website (including your IP address, geographical location, browser type and version, operating system, referral source, length of visit, page views, website navigation).
  • information relating to any transactions carried out between you and us on or in relation to this website, including information relating to any purchases you make of our goods or services.
  • information that you provide to us for the purpose of registering with us, including name, email, phone, and other relevant information to provide you with the service you’re requesting and important information.
  • information that you provide to us for the purpose of subscribing to our website services, email notifications and/or newsletters, text messages, and voicemail broadcasts.
  • any other information that you choose to send to us.

Most of your customer information is stored on our secured servers and in a third-party Customer Relationship Manager (CRM) system called ActiveCampaign. Your credit card information is not stored by us and is instead stored securely by established PCI compliant payment processors such as Stripe and Moonclerk.

By submitting your email address on our Sites, you agree to receive email from us. You can cancel your participation in any of these email lists at any time by clicking the opt-out link or other unsubscribe option that is included in the respective email. You can customize your email and other preferences (such as the lists you are subscribed to) by following the instructions contained in the Section entitled “Updating, Removing, Or Exporting Your Personal Information”. We only send emails to people who have authorized us to contact them, either directly, or through a third party. We do not send unsolicited commercial emails, because we hate spam as much as you do.

By submitting your email address, you also agree to allow us to use your email address for custom audience targeting on sites like Facebook, where we display custom advertising to specific people who have opted-in to receive communications from us.

If you wish to stop seeing ads from us on Facebook, you can turn off the ad by using the following steps:

  1. From within Facebook, go to the advertisement you want to turn off.
  2. Click on the drop-down arrow in the top corner of the ad (that may be in the top right corner or top left corner).
  3. Click on “Hide ad”.

You can also customize the ads you see in Facebook across all advertisers by using the following steps:

  1. Log in to your Facebook account and click “settings”.
  2. Click on “Ads”.
  3. On that page you will see a list of options you can choose to limit and/or block the information Facebook shows to advertisers.

If you wish to stop seeing ads from us in Google Ads, you can turn off the ad by using the following steps:

  1. Go to the advertisement you want to turn off.
  2. Click on the x in the top left corner.
  3. Click on “Stop seeing this ad”.

Other ad platforms we may use in the future have similar ways you can turn off any ad from us to stop seeing it.

In addition, you agree that by submitting your telephone contact information on our Sites and/or registering to receive the product and/or service offered herein, such act constitutes a purchase, an inquiry, and/or an application for the purposes of the Amended Telemarketing Sales Rule (ATSR), 16 CFR ‘310 et seq. and any applicable state and local “do not call” regulations. We retain the right to contact you via telemarketing in accordance with the ATSR and the applicable state regulations.

 

B. Non-Personally Identifiable Information

 

We may also collect various types of non-personally identifiable information to help us make your experience more enjoyable, measure our Sites’ activity to identify future improvements that should be made, and compile aggregate data to help serve site visitors better.
For example, we may use “cookies” as outlined in Section 2 “Cookies”, session logs, web beacons, GIF/pixel tags, banner adds, third-party click tracking analytics tools (such as Google Analytics), third party retargeting networks that may display our advertisements to you on other web sites that you visit to remind you about us, and third party networks that serve user-requested emails (e.g. for a refer-a-friend email) to collect non-personally identifiable or other aggregated information about site visitors.

Cookies are files containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser. We may use both “session” cookies and “persistent” cookies on the Sites. Session cookies will be deleted from your computer when you close your browser. Persistent cookies will remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach a specified expiry date. We will use the session cookies to: keep track of you while you navigate any of our other Sites; keep track of items in your shopping basket; prevent fraud and increase website security. We will use the persistent cookies to: enable our Sites to recognize you when you visit; keep track of your preferences in relation to your use of our Sites.

We use Google Analytics to analyze the use of our Sites. Google Analytics generates statistical and other information about website use by means of cookies, which are stored on users’ computers. The information generated relating to our Sites is used to create reports about the use of our Sites. Google will store this information. Google’s privacy policy is available at: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/. Our advertisers, payment services providers, and affiliates may also send you cookies. You can learn more about how to opt out of a third party vendor’s use of cookies by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page.

Most browsers allow you to reject all cookies, whilst some browsers allow you to reject just third party cookies. For example, in Internet Explorer (version 9) you can refuse all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Internet options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block All Cookies” using the sliding selector. Blocking all cookies will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites. Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret web browser-based “Do Not Track” signals other than cookies, we do not currently respond to “Do Not Track” signals that are undefined.

If you visit the Sites with an open ID (such as Facebook), you may also be sharing and integrating data with third-party social media sites, and we may track aggregate data about the number of visits to the Sites with an open ID, the number of items “liked” on the Sites, or items on the Sites that you choose to share with a third-party social media site.
Other parties such as advertising partners and analytics companies may also be collecting information about your online activity across various web sites over time. The information collected by those third parties may include identifiers that allow those third parties to tailor the ads that they serve to your computer or other device.
