Third Party Services
We use non-personal information in aggregate form to build higher quality, more useful online services by performing statistical analyses of the collective characteristics and behavior of our customers and visitors, and by measuring demographics and interests regarding specific areas of our site. We may provide anonymous statistical information based on this data to suppliers, advertisers, affiliates and other current and potential business partners. We may also use such aggregate data to inform these third parties as to the number of people who have seen and clicked on links to their web sites. Occasionally, Travelocity will hire a third party to act on our behalf for projects such as market-research surveys and contest-entry processing, or will contract with a third party to provide co-branded products, such as a Travelocity credit card. We may also use third parties to provide a portion of the services or technology that make up the Travelocity Service. In such cases, Travelocity will provide these third parties with access to information specifically for use in connection with the applicable projects, services or technology. The information such third parties receive access to is protected by confidentiality agreements and is to be used solely for the purpose(s) permitted by such agreements. See "What other information should I know about my privacy?" below.
As a Travelocity member and/or customer you will also occasionally receive updates from us about fare sales in your area, special offers, new Travelocity services, "Roaming Gnome Recommends", and other noteworthy items. We hope you will find these updates interesting and informative. Of course, if you would rather not receive a particular communication, please click on the "opt-out" link in our e-mail, or follow the instructions in each e-mail message. You can unsubscribe from our FareWatcher Plus service by editing your preferences in the FareWatcher Plus box of your "My Account" page. You may also unsubscribe from all Travelocity promotional communications, "Roaming Gnome Recommends", and FareWatcher Plus by clicking on the "unsubscribe" link in our e-mail. From time to time, we may use your personal information to send important notices, such as notifications about your trip or your account. Because this information is important to your interaction with Travelocity, you may not opt-out of receiving these communications. If using a mobile device, you may be able to configure the settings on the device not to provide location-specific information. However, if your device is configured to provide location-specific information, it is not possible at this time for you to opt-out of our gathering of such information via your mobile device.
While no website can promise complete security, we have implemented administrative, technical, and physical security procedures designed to protect the personal information you provide to us. For example, only authorized employees are permitted to access personal information, and they may only do so for permitted business functions. In addition, we use encryption when transmitting your sensitive personal information between your system and ours, and we employ firewalls and intrusion detection systems to help prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to your information. In addition, when you make travel purchases on Travelocity, you are protected by Travelocity's Shop Safe Guarantee.
In addition to the circumstances described above, Travelocity may disclose personal information if required to do so by law, court order, as requested by other government or law enforcement authority, or in the good faith belief that disclosure is otherwise necessary or advisable including, without limitation, to protect the rights or properties of Travelocity or its affiliated companies or when we have reason to believe that disclosing the information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing interference with our rights or properties, whether intentionally or otherwise, or when anyone else could be harmed by such activities. In addition, if Travelocity or substantially all of its assets are acquired, the personal information of our customers will also most likely be transferred in connection with such acquisition.
What we do NOT do: a warning about "phishing"
We do not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information, login name, or password, in an unsecure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication.
Identity theft and the practice currently known as "phishing" are of great concern to us. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is our priority. For more information about phishing, you may want to visit the Federal Government website "OnGuard Online" at http://onguardonline.gov/phishing.html.
Thank you for using Travelocity Service!
