When you browse the Site and have not registered for any online service from Borton Overseas, you browse anonymously. “Personal Information” is defined as any information that identifies or can be used to identify, contact, or locate the person to whom such information pertains including, but not limited to, a first and last name, e-mail address, a home, postal or other physical address, or other contact information. Personal Information is not collected as you browse anonymously.
However, when you register for or request any Site service, you may be asked to provide us with Personal Information which is used to enhance your Site experience, expedite communications, allow you to receive electronic/postal mailings from Borton Overseas, or to be contacted as requested. Additionally, we may request your upcoming travel plans and the next destination you plan to visit which allows us to further personalize your use of the Site and e-mail messages you may receive to meet your specific needs, as well as make Borton Overseas product improvements. We may also use this Personal Information to generate market research reports.
Further, in order to provide you with a particular Site product or service, we may request that you voluntarily supply us with Personal Information for purposes such as correspondence, Site registration, submitting an application or booking request, requesting product descriptions, or participating in Site surveys and/or contests. If you are known to us as a registered user of an Borton Overseas Site, we may combine information about your use of Site products or services with certain other online and offline information we have about you as a Borton Overseas customer as well as information available from external sources in order to customize your Site experience and present you with relevant online and offline communications.
When you enter a contest, respond to an online survey or other promotional feature on the Site, we may ask for your Personal Information so that we can administer the contest and notify winners. Participation in these contests is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose the required information.
We may use Personal Information you have given us within our group of companies to, for example, provide a service, ensure proper booking, measure consumer interest in our various products and services and inform you about products and services. If you have provided your e-mail address to us, our group of companies, or to a company we’ve partnered with to make their products and services available to you, we may send you e-mail communications. These e-mails may be based on Personal Information you provided in your initial transaction with us, in surveys both online and offline, from information that may indicate purchasing preferences and lifestyle, as well as from available external sources. These e-mails may come directly from Borton Overseas. You can opt-out from receiving e-mail from Borton Overseas as described below in the section, “Declining E-mail.” When we send you e-mail, we may use your e-mail address to identify information about your receipt of the e-mail, including whether the communication was opened, how many times it was viewed and whether you clicked on an embedded hyperlink to reach a particular product or service. This information is used to measure response rates to e-mail communications as well as enhance your Site experience.
Borton Overseas does not provide your Personal Information to our business partners. However, we may send you offers on behalf of our business partners. If you take advantage of an offer from a Borton Overseas business partner and become their customer, they may independently wish to send e-mails to you. In that case, you will need to inform them separately if you wish to decline receiving future e-mails from them.
We may share Personal Information with law enforcement agencies or other governmental authorities in the event of a criminal investigation, suspected illegal activity, or as otherwise required by applicable law.
