2. Types of Information Collected and Use of Information Collected
We collect two types of information about our Website Users: personal information and information that is not personal information.
Personal information is information that allows for the identification of a specific User. When you engage in certain activities on the Website, such as without limitation the creation of a user account, the ordering of a voucher (hereinafter an “Voucher”) exchangeable with a merchant (hereinafter a “Merchant”), the submission of a listing, the submission or publication of content in discussion forums, the application to our membership, the entry in a contest or in sweepstakes sponsored by us or one of our partners or a Merchant, the submission of a survey, the publication of a review, the sending of feedback, the entry to receive newsletter, the request of information about our services, the submission of an affiliate agreement, the publication of a video or your signing up to receive special offers from third parties through the Website (hereinafter collectively, the “Identification Activities”), we may ask you to provide certain information about yourself. It is optional for you to engage in an Identification Activity. If you elect to engage in an Identification Activity, however, we will ask you to provide us with certain personal information about yourself, such as your first and last name, your mailing address (including your postal code), your email address, your telephone number and your date of birth. When you purchase an ad on our website, we will also ask you to provide PayPal or Stripe with your credit card number, its expiration date, its authentication code and other related information. Depending on the Identification Activity, some of the information we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some is identified as voluntary. If you do not provide the information identified as mandatory for a particular Identification Activity that requires it, you will not be permitted to engage in that particular activity.
Use of personal information
We use personal information communicated to us in order to provide you with products and services, administer sweepstakes and contests, enhance the operation of the Website, improve our marketing and promotional efforts, analyze our Website use, improve our products and service offerings, and tailor your experience with third parties as provided in Item 3 of this Policy. For example, if you send an email to our customer service, we may use your comments and feedback to promote our services to third parties, and we may publish your comment in our marketing materials or on our Website. It is possible that your comments may contain personal information such as your name. The user agrees that by giving the requested information Travel N’ Gear has the right to use to their discretion the given information without any prior notice. In addition, if you use our Website to send information or a product to a third party, we may store your personal information. We may also use personal information to troubleshoot, resolve disputes, accomplish administrative tasks, contact you, enforce the policies we have with you, including our Conditions and this Policy, comply with applicable law, or cooperate with law enforcement activities.
Information that is not personal information
Information that is not personal information is information that does not allow for the identification of a specific User. This type of information may include items such as the Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) of the website you visited before coming to our Website, the URL of the website you visit after leaving our Website, the type of browser you are using and your IP address. We, and/or our partners, may automatically collect this information when you visit our Website through the use of electronic tools such as cookies and Web beacons or Pixel tags, such as is described in Items 4 and 8 of this Policy.

3. Release of personal information
We will not share, sell, nor trade your personal information with third parties without your prior consent or except as provided hereinafter, excluding the information that the User posts on their published listings on the website. Travel N’ Gear has the right to share listings that appear on the website and advertise these given listings through email and social media without giving the User prior notice. User understands that by submitting a listing to the website, Travel N’ Gear has the right to use the listing at their discretion without User approval.
We may share your personal information with Merchants. From time to time, Merchants request personal information on Travel N’ Gear customers who purchased an ad in order to aid redemption with the latter. In those cases, we share with Merchants certain personal information required for such a communication. Sharing this personal information allows a Merchant to send advertising directly to you at their option. However, we will only share personal information with a Merchant that is directly involved in this specific Identification Activity. We specifically decline any responsibility or liability for the actions of such a Merchant. We inform Merchants that they are permitted to communicate with you only for the purposes of the specific promotion with Travel N’ Gear. We, however, do not have any responsibility for the actions of the Merchants following the sharing of personal information in accordance with this Policy.
We may remarket your information
We may share your information in a business transfer
As with any other business, we could merge with, or be acquired by, another company. If this occurs, our successor company would acquire the information we hold, including personal information concerning you. However, this personal information would remain subject to this Policy.
We may share your information for our protection and the protection of others
We reserve the right to disclose your personal information, as required by law, when we reasonably believe that such disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process aimed at our Website or its operations; in order to apply or enforce this Policy, our Conditions or our other agreements, or to protect the rights, property or security of the Website, its Users or others.
4. Disclosure of information that is not personal information
We may disclose or share information that is not personal information with our partners, Affiliates and advertisers. For example, we may share aggregated demographic information (which does not include personal information) with advertisers or Third Party Service Providers in the advertising domain and other parties as provided below:
We use Third Party Service Providers in the advertising domain to serve advertisements when you visit our Website
These companies may use information that is not personal information regarding your visits to this Website and other websites in order to provide, through the use of network tags, advertisements about goods and services that may be of interest to you. Some of these Third Party Service Providers in the advertising domain may publish advertisements for advertising networks that are members of the Network Advertising Initiative.

As a condition of registering on the website and the purchase of ads, you will receive both administrative and promotional emails. We will send you information regarding your account activity and completed purchases as well as updates about our products and promotional offers. You cannot opt-out of these administrative emails. These administrative emails relate to a User’s Identification Activity on the Website, and include emails regarding a particular User’s account, information requests or inquiries, and purchases of ads. In contrast to administrative emails, however, you have the option with respect to promotional emails. Promotional emails advertise our products and services, including exclusive sales and other offers and/or the products and services of our advertisers and Affiliates.

7. Security of Information
We take security seriously and take numerous precautions to protect the security of personal information. You may access your personal information on our Website through a password and your email address. This password is encrypted. You must not share your password with anyone. In addition, your personal information is kept on a secure server to which only selected personnel and certain selected third parties have access. We encrypt certain sensitive information (such as credit card information) using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to ensure that your personal information is secure during its transmission.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we employ commercially reasonable security measures to protect data and seek to partner with companies which take the same security measures, we cannot guarantee the security of any information transmitted to or from the Website, and are not responsible for the actions of any third parties that may receive any such information.
8. Data Tracking
Other Tracking Devices. We may use other industry standard technologies such as pixel tags and web beacons to track your use of our Website pages and promotions, or we may allow our Third Party Service Providers to use these devices on our behalf. Pixel tags and web beacons are tiny graphic images placed on certain pages on our Website or in our emails that allow us to determine whether you have performed a specific action. When you access these pages or open or click an email, pixel tags and web beacons generate, from that action, a notice of information that is not personal information. Pixel tags allow us to measure and improve our understanding of visitor traffic and behaviour on our Website, as well as give us a way to measure our promotions and performance. We may also utilize pixel tags and web beacons provided by our Affiliates and/or partners for the same purposes.
9. Policies of third party websites
