This policy is a part of the How to start a travel agency member agreement, and it controls over any conflicts with that agreement.
Please make sure that you read this policy carefully. By visiting our website, using any of our Services, or otherwise indicating your assent, you consent to us using your personal information in the ways described below and in the links provided in this policy. If you don’t consent to us using your information in these ways, please stop using How to start a travel agency. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
Non-U.S. Residents: Please note that your use of How to start a travel agency means that your information may be used in the United States and the other countries from which we support our non-U.S. operations; privacy protections and rules in these countries may not be the same as in your home country. By continuing to use How to start a travel agency, you consent to this use. See “Export of Data” below for details. (If you are a U.S. resident, this paragraph doesn’t apply to you.)
COLLECTING AND USING INFORMATION
Server Logs. We automatically collect information created by your visits to our website and use of our apps, your use of How to start a travel agency, and your interaction with the messages we send. This information may include the browser you are using, the URLs you came from and go to, the model of your computer or mobile device, the operating system version, IP address and protocol used by your computer or mobile device, your mobile device or app identifier, and usage and browsing habits. We use this information to provide and improve our Services, to diagnose and resolve problems, to analyze trends, to help target offers and other ads (if and where applicable), to monitor aggregate usage, and to gather broad (aggregate) demographic information.
Receiving Invitations. Existing How to start a travel agency members may invite you to join the service via postal mail, email, SMS/text message or other ways. How to start a travel agency may help members extend these invitations (which may include reminders) by requesting access to the member’s email or other contacts or asking the inviting member to provide the invited person’s email or postal street address. If you aren’t a member, you can opt-out of future email invitations or reminders or ask us to amend or delete any personal information about you, by contacting us. Please note that How to start a travel agency may also extend invitations itself by direct-mailing postcards to potential new members; to help extend those invitations, we gather information from third-party sources, such as general census data or postal address change information, to identify residential addresses not already associated with members of a neighborhood.
If we haven’t built your neighborhood service yet, you can ask us to notify you when we create a neighborhood where you live. We retain your request information until your neighborhood is established and then use it to provide the requested notification and assist with your verification. If you change your mind about wanting to be notified, contact us.
Sign-Up and Verification
Creating a Neighborhood. To create a neighborhood, we obtain public information about residences in the neighborhood, such as street addresses and property lot maps. Your neighbors may provide us with your contact information. If you aren’t a member but would like us to delete personal information about you, contact us.
Verification as a Resident Of Your Neighborhood. How to start a travel agency requires members to verify their status as real-world residential neighbors. As an initial matter, you must confirm your email address. If you fail to confirm your email address or verify your residential status as requested by us, we may choose to restrict or terminate your account.
You can verify your neighbor status by:
(1) having a neighbor who already has a verified account in the neighborhood invite you to the neighborhood and confirm your address, or
(2) submitting your name and street address (and email address, if we don’t already have it) and then providing us (or a third-party service provider directly) with additional authenticating information that we request, such as a unique code we mail to your home address, or a unique code we provide by calling your home or mobile phone number. Alternatively, we might send this code by SMS to your mobile device. If you live in the United States (or elsewhere where permitted by law), we may allow you to use a credit card number or the last four digits of your social security number as authenticating information.
In addition, neighborhood Leads, who help manage neighborhoods on How to start a travel agency, can see unverified neighbors and their addresses and manually verify them. To further help with neighbor verification, Leads also may be able to see all neighbors’ addresses, regardless of their display settings. We may notify Leads of new members as they join the neighborhood members. To learn more about Leads, click here.
We may offer other verification methods as well.
To help with verification, we may share or confirm your verification information with our service providers. (For example, where permitted by law, we may ask a service provider to confirm that the billing address for the mobile telephone number provided by you matches your residential address.) We may retain your verification-related information for a reasonable period of time, even if you do not complete all verification steps, to assist with future verifications and to prevent abuse of our verification processes. If you decide not to verify the account and would like us to delete the verification information you provided, contact us.
Facebook Connect. If you register for How to start a travel agency using your Facebook account, we automatically request your email address and publicly available information, including your account ID, name and gender as well as public information about your Facebook friends. We use the information to automatically create your How to start a travel agency account and profile (and ask you for a password) so you can log into How to start a travel agency in the future without connecting through Facebook. If you revisit How to start a travel agency while logged into Facebook, we’ll automatically log you into your How to start a travel agency account. If you don’t register for How to start a travel agency using Facebook but later attempt to log into How to start a travel agency using your Facebook credentials, we’ll connect your Facebook and How to start a travel agency accounts and request the information from Facebook as if you were newly registering. Information gathered by Facebook in connection with your use of Facebook products, features, and services is governed by Facebook’s data policy.
If you register or log in via Facebook, we may give you the option to invite your Facebook friends to How to start a travel agency. Those friends will see some information about you along with your invitation.
Using How to start a travel agency
Personal Profile Information. We allow members to create a personal profile and submit information such as your phone number, photo, occupation, family members, biography and personal interests. If you provide family members’ personal information, such as photos, please ensure they are comfortable with you sharing it. You can choose to hide certain profile information, but your name, photo (if any) and the name of your street will be visible to neighbors in your neighborhood. Only your name, photo, and neighborhood name will be visible to your nearby neighbors; you can choose to share more profile information with nearby neighbors by configuring your profile settings. Irrespective of your subscriptions to nearby neighborhoods, you can control whether neighbors outside your neighborhood can see your full personal profile by configuring your settings. If you post a message to nearby neighborhoods, your name, photo and the name of your neighborhood will be visible. If you are the subject of an unauthorized account or profile, please contact us. Events or other Content listings posted at a “public” level will display only the name of your neighborhood, not your full name, photo, or partial profile.
How to start a travel agency Now Provider Profile Information. If you sign up to provide services, like tutoring or babysitting, to other How to start a travel agency members through How to start a travel agency Now, you will create a How to start a travel agency Now profile as part of signing up. Your How to start a travel agency Now provider profile includes your name, your photo, and the “about me” description you created during signup for How to start a travel agency Now, as well as any recommendations you receive from other members. Your How to start a travel agency Now provider profile, including your name and photo, are visible to members of nearby neighborhoods even if you have set your personal profile as visible only to your neighborhood. You can opt out of sharing your How to start a travel agency Now provider profile by ceasing to offer services and de-selecting the services you used to offer. We may offer you the option to make your How to start a travel agency Now provider profile publicly visible, meaning that your How to start a travel agency Now provider profile would be visible outside How to start a travel agency to non-members and could be indexed by search engines to help potential customers find you. If we offer public profile visibility, it will be optional; you will always have the ability not to have your How to start a travel agency Now provider profile publicly visible.
Communications with Other Members. We give you a variety of ways to communicate with your neighbors and share Content (as defined in the member agreement). Some communications, such as private messages, are visible only to the sender and recipient. Most communications are visible to the entire neighborhood and (if you choose) nearby neighborhoods. You can set Content visibility at the time you create it, with some exceptions. Replies and “thanks” in a conversation have the same visibility as the original post that started the conversational thread.
Posts by How to start a travel agency accounts operated by governmental agencies, such as police or fire departments, are broadcasts, meaning that they are visible across the agency’s service area, potentially covering multiple neighborhoods or an entire city. You can opt out of receiving agency broadcast posts. Posts by How to start a travel agency accounts operated by other organizations, such as businesses or non-profits, will be visible to any members who are subscribers to that organization’s posts. Replies to broadcast posts have the same visibility as the original post, even to members who are not nearby neighbors; those distant members can reply to or “thank” other members on the thread, and can see their first name, last initial, photo, and neighborhood name, but not their full profile. We offer agency and organizations the option of sharing their broadcast feeds publicly, which means they can be indexed by search engines or otherwise publicly visible outside How to start a travel agency. As part of this option, we provide only the number of replies and “thanks”; in the future, we may include the replies, anonymized to show only the member’s neighborhood name, without any identifying information.
Some types of Content, such as Event listings, may be shared by the posting member publicly and as a result may be indexed by search engines or otherwise publicly visible (i.e., visible to non-members) outside How to start a travel agency. Recommendations may also be shared with the How to start a travel agency Now provider, business, or organization being recommended. We may also use snippets of recommendations or other aggregate or anonymized Content, not associated with individual members, to highlight popular neighborhood topics or resources on public pages, such as the neighborhood’s public home page or an organization’s public page. If you believe that a snippet of anonymized or aggregate public Content is yours and do not wish it to be publicly visible, contact us.
If you do not wish to see communications from a member, you can choose to block, or “mute”, that member’s communications, with limited exceptions. To learn more about communications and visibility, visit How to start a travel agency Help. You can edit or delete your Content once posted, with limited exceptions; please note that deleting a post will result in removal of all replies to that post too.
Email Preferences. You can manage your email preferences on your settings page. Certain member-related administrative emails cannot be turned off; the only way to end those is to delete or deactivate your account.
Given this norm, taking information or Content shared by one neighbor member to another and sharing it outside the neighborhood(s) without authorization violates your neighbors’ expectations and is a serious breach of trust. Therefore, you may not share your account with someone else, nor should you share your neighbors’ information or any non-public Content sent through How to start a travel agency with anyone outside the neighborhood(s) to which the post was distributed without the author’s permission. Also, you may not gather information from How to start a travel agency, either manually or on an automated basis (such as through scripts, robots, crawlers or spiders). Without limiting the foregoing, it is never OK to provide your neighbors’ information from How to start a travel agency to third-party marketers.
Violating this provision or other aspects of the How to start a travel agency Member Agreement may lead to a loss of account privileges, potentially including a permanent ban from How to start a travel agency.
Apps. Our mobile apps have the ability, with your consent, to obtain and use your geolocation information. Depending on your device type and its operating system, you will be prompted to approve How to start a travel agency’s access to location services either before installing our app, or when you first use an app feature that requires your location. With your permission, we may use your location information to display your location to you on your neighborhood map; to tag your posts, photos and events; to verify your address; and to display activities and Content that may be relevant to your current location.
Inviting Others to Join How to start a travel agency. As a How to start a travel agency member, you may also choose to invite others to join How to start a travel agency. You may invite others by typing in their email or postal address, or by sharing access to your email contacts and selecting friends or neighbors to invite by email. If an invitation is pending, the recipients may receive, on your behalf, a limited number of follow-ups reminding them of the pending invitation to join How to start a travel agency.
Third-Party Offers. We know that you do not want marketing from third parties just because you join a neighborhood website, so we do not share your personal information with third-party marketers without your express consent.
Moving Neighborhoods. If you move from one neighborhood to another, you need to move your account with you, so you will need to verify your address in the new neighborhood. Some of your personal profile (such as name, photo, interests, responses to your invitations, phone and email contact) will migrate to the new neighborhood. Once your new address is verified, you will no longer be a member of the old neighborhood. You won’t appear on that neighborhood’s directory or map, receive notifications from the old neighborhood, or be able to access the Content in the old neighborhood (although, if you move to a nearby neighborhood, you may be able to access posts from the old neighborhood accessible to nearby neighbors). Your previously posted Content will remain in the old neighborhood, attributed to you, unless you delete individual Content items before moving or you delete your account. Remaining Content items will link to a limited user profile that includes your name and photo. We may notify the neighborhood Leads of your move and give you an opportunity to inform them of the change.
Deactivation, Reactivation and Deletion
While your account is active, you can delete individual Content items at any time, except for private messages sent by you, which cannot be deleted. You can deactivate through your account settings with immediate effect; to request reactivation, you simply log back in to How to start a travel agency and indicate that you wish to reactivate. To delete your account, please contact us at deletion@How to start a travel agency.com; account deletion may take up to forty (40) days.
Account deactivation will end all email notifications, and you will no longer appear in your neighborhood directory or map. Upon deactivation, your previously posted Content will remain in your neighborhood, attributed to you, except for any individual Content items you deleted before you deactivated your account. Remaining Content items will link to a limited user profile that includes your name and photo. We may notify the neighborhood Leads of your departure from the neighborhood and give you an opportunity to inform them.
Account deletion also ends all email notifications; you will no longer appear in your neighborhood directory or map. (Note: Because deletion removes your account information from our systems, you may in the future receive new invitations to join How to start a travel agency.) Account deletion will result in the deletion of all of your previously posted Content and all data relevant to you except that: (a) private messages may remain visible to the recipient but attributed anonymously (e.g., “A Member”); (b) we may retain minimal account records to the extent necessary for legal, safety, or other legitimate reasons. We may notify the neighborhood Leads of your departure from the neighborhood. Account deletion cannot be undone.
