Budget Your Trip Privacy & Security Policy

Date Last Revised: October 17, 2018


While more details are below, we want to make our privacy policy clear and understandable to everyone.

  • For anonymous users of the website, we do not collect any personal information.
  • For those users who wish to register on our website, we collect the following personal information: your email address, your chosen "display name" which does not need to be your real name, and your travel expenses that are voluntarily entered by you at your discretion. We do not share any personal information unless you choose to share it yourself. All travel expenses entered by you are averaged and aggregated with the expenses from other users and then displayed anonymously. At no point is any travel expense information shared without your permission.
  • For those users who wish to subscribe to our email newsletter - your email address and your name (if provided) will be shared by SendInBlue.com, an email marketing company used for the distribution of email newsletters.
  • We track users anonymously with Google Analytics, which tracks clicks and behavior without using personal information.
  • We use advertising platforms that sometimes track users anonymously, but don't collect personal information.
  • We only use cookies if you are logged in to our website with your account. No personal information is stored inside any cookie.
  • Account deletion: any user who desires to have their account deleted (and all related data) may contact us at any time.

Budget Your Trip is committed to maintaining the confidentiality, integrity and security of any personal information about our users. This Privacy & Security Policy explains how we protect personal information provided through our website www.BudgetYourTrip.com (the "Site") and how we use that information in connection with our service offered through the Site (the "Service"). "Personal information" for purposes of this Policy means information that identifies you, such as your name or email address.

  1. Your Privacy is not for sale

    Simply put, we do not and will not share or sell or rent your personal information to anyone, for any reason, at any time. BudgetYourTrip uses and discloses your personal information only as follows:

    • to analyze site usage and improve the Service;
    • to enforce BudgetYourTrip's Terms of Use; and
    • as otherwise set forth in this Privacy and Security Policy.
    Email Address

    This is a free content site. We do not require any information from you (not even a user name or password). We do not sell any information from our site to any outside party. The only e-mail sent from our websites is in response to an inquiry that you may send us or as a result of joining our double opt-in e-mail list. If anything comes to your attention which could potentially be a violation of this policy, please let us know immediately so that we can investigate it and try to correct it.

  2. We limit the collection and use of personal information

    Certain areas and features of BudgetYourTrip.com are available to you without registration or the need to provide to us any information. However, other features of the Site or the Service may require registration, which involves provision to BudgetYourTrip.com of an email address and a password. All other personal information is optional.

    BudgetYourTrip may make anonymous or aggregate personal information and disclose such data only in a non-personally identifiable manner to:

    • Advertisers and other third parties for their marketing and promotional purposes, such as the number of users who visited a particular region or how many users clicked on a particular BudgetYourTrip Offer;
    • Organizations approved by BudgetYourTrip that conduct research into consumer spending; and
    • Users of the Service for purposes of comparison of their spending relative to the broader community and an estimate of expected spending in an area.
    • Such information does not identify you individually. Access to your Registration Information, Account Information and any other personal information you provide is strictly restricted

    We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads and collect information when users visit our site. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements on our site, other websites and other forms of media about goods and services of interest to you.

  5. Disclosure of your information to protect our rights or if required by law

    Notwithstanding the foregoing, BudgetYourTrip reserves the right (and you authorize BudgetYourTrip) to share or disclose your personal information when BudgetYourTrip determines, in its sole discretion, that the disclosure of such information is necessary or appropriate:
