Live The Dash Tours Privacy Policy

Effective date: 3/26/2013

Live The Dash Tours, LLC (referred to in this Privacy Statement as “Live The Dash”) respects your privacy and is committed to protecting the personal information that you share with us. Below is our privacy policy that applies to livethedashtours.com, ltdtours.com  or any site (referred to in this privacy policy as the “site”) owned, operated, licensed or controlled by Live The Dash. This site is intended for use by persons who are 18 years of age or older. By using this site or communicating via telephone or otherwise with Live The Dash, you are accepting the practices described in this privacy policy.  If you do not agree with these terms, you should not use this site.

Information we collect:

Live The Dash may collect personal information such as names, company names, titles, addresses, telephone numbers, fax numbers, e-mail addresses, and payment information (such as credit card numbers) from users on a voluntary basis. Live The Dash automatically collects some information about your computer when you visit www.livethedashtours.com and www.ltdtours.com.

In addition to personal information, Live The Dash may also gather non-personally identifiable information, which may be used by Live The Dash. This generally means information that is collected by automatic or electronic means, using technologies such as cookies, pixel tags and web beacons, browser analysis tools, and web server logs. Our site actively logs and records information such as referral websites, visits, length of sessions, domains, browser software and more. We aggregate and use this non-personal data to improve our site experience for you. We may also collect information about your online activity, such as content viewed and pages visited.

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 Live The Dash, 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 the site and email messages you may receive to meet your specific needs, as well as make Live The Dash product improvements. We may also use this personal information in aggregate to generate market research reports.

IP Addresses:

Live The Dash collects the IP addresses used to access our sites and the dates and times of access. This information is used to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not personally linked to identifiable information.

Registration for Online Products & Services:

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 information or booking request, placing an order, requesting product descriptions, or participating in site surveys and/or contests. If you are known to us as a registered user of the Live The Dash 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 Live The Dash 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.

How we use your information:

Live The Dash does not sell or rent your personal information.  We may use the personal information you have given us to 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 email address to us or to a company we’ve partnered with to make their products and services available to you, we may send you email. These emails 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 those available from external sources. These emails come directly from Live The Dash. You can opt-out from receiving emails from Live The Dash at any time.  When we send you email, we may use your email address to identify information about your receipt of the email, including whether the communication was opened, how many times it was viewed and whether you clicked on an embedded hyperlink to reach a particular web page. This information is used to measure response rates to email communications as well as to enhance your site experience.

Live The Dash will share your information with the outside suppliers (such as guides, travel companies, hotels, insurance companies, equipment suppliers, and credit card processing entities, etc.) who perform services on our behalf. As you would expect, certain information must be provided to these suppliers in order to facilitate your booking and in order to provide you with service(s) you have requested.

How we protect your information:

Live The Dash uses Secure Socket Layers (SSL), the industry standard in transferring information to process your orders. The SSL encrypts, or translates, your order information into a highly indecipherable code, which is processed immediately. When you begin the transaction process, you will move into the secure area of our site. A warning window may pop up to notify you that you are entering this “safe” area. You will remain in this secure zone for the entire transaction process.

We endeavor to protect the privacy of your account and other personal information we hold in our records, but we cannot guarantee 100% security. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors, may compromise the security of user information at any time.  The site may contain links to other sites. We are not responsible for the privacy policies and/or practices on other sites. When following a link to another site you should read that site’s privacy policy. Access to your personal information is limited to authorized employees only. We keep our employees informed about our policies and procedures. Unauthorized access and/or disclosure of client information are strictly prohibited. All of our employees are expected to maintain the confidentiality of customer information at all times.

Social Media:

You can choose to access certain third party social media websites and services through our site. When you do so, you are sharing information with those sites, and the information you share will be governed by their privacy policies. You may also be able to modify your privacy settings with these third party social media websites.

Online Surveys:

We value opinions and comments from Live The Dash customers, and you may have the opportunity to give us your feedback through site surveys. In conducting these surveys, we may ask for your personal information so that we can appropriately identify you. Survey and personal information collected will be aggregated and used to make improvements to the site and improve Live The Dash products and services. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice as to whether or not to disclose the required information.
