OUR PLEDGE TO YOUR PRIVACY
Virtually There is provided as a service to your travel arranger (*). Sabre Virtually There understands and appreciates the fact that protecting your privacy is very important to you. That's why we have written this document, detailing our commitment to your privacy.
At times, we provide information to the companies that participate in our web site, and travel providers participating in your itinerary. In this case, the information is only aggregate (gathered or accumulated) data that does not contain any personal information about Virtually There site visitors. Our policies and procedures are designed to prevent anyone other than Sabre and your travel arranger from having access to your personal information.
Third Party Links - Our website may include links to outside parties for additional content or services. These third parties have separate privacy policies that are not controlled or managed by Sabre Virtually There and we encourage you to read their privacy policies. We have no responsibility or liability for the content or activities of these linked sites. However, we seek to continue adding services and information our customers value and welcome your feedback about these sites.
HOW INFORMATION IS GATHERED
To receive certain services (e.g. Flight Notification), you will need to register with Virtually There by providing limited personal information. Information that we request from our customers is basic identifying information including:
- User Name
- E-mail Address
Personal information that you provide during the registration process is voluntary and will only be used to fulfill the service(s) you have selected. Marketing communication, such as emails or text messages regarding special offers or discounts will not be sent to you unless you have provided consent by selecting this additional option within your user profile.
"Cookies": When you log-on or use any of the services in the Sabre Virtually There website, our server can automatically recognize your personal computer by your encrypted Member Key-also known as a "cookie." This Member Key allows us to identify you when you return so that you do not have to enter your user name and password every single time you visit us.
We are able to automatically customize your visit to our website more easily by noticing what parts of the Virtually There site you click on most often, how you arrived at our site, which browser you use, etc. This category of information is referred to as "click stream data." We don't keep individual users' click steam information, but we do collect these statistics to study group interests. This helps us modify our site to make it more appealing to the largest number of people. Other information tracked automatically is the Internet Service Provider you use, the domain you visited previously, and the URL that the browser accessed.
Go to the "Help" utilities on your web browser to find information about the ability to warn you when new cookies are received, if you choose to prevent the acceptance of new cookies, or help you disable cookies altogether. But please keep in mind that allowing your computer to receive and store cookies will give you the full benefit of your Sabre Virtually There website and can enhance overall performance when you visit our website.
You may choose to visit our website anonymously by using a software utility designed for that purpose. These utilities can be found on the Internet.
Additionally, Virtually There utilizes third-party advertising companies to serve our ads on the Site. These third-party advertising companies employ cookie and 1x1 pixel .gifs or web beacons to measure and improve the effectiveness of ads for their clients. To do so, these companies may use anonymous information about your visits to our website and other websites, but will not collect any information which can personally identify you or can be linked to you. This information can include: date/time of banner ad shown, the banner ad that was shown, their cookie, and the IP address. This information can also be used for online preference marketing purposes.
If you want to prevent a third-party advertiser from collecting data, currently you may either visit each ad network's web site individually and opt out or visit the NAI gateway opt-out site to opt-out of all network advertising cookies. Click here for the NAI gateway opt-out site: http://www.networkadvertising.org/optout_nonppii.asp . This site will also allow you to review the third-party advertising companies' privacy policies.
FOR YOUR SECURITY
