  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, GMDC collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. GMDC’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how GMDC’s visitors use its website. From time to time, GMDC may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

GMDC also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. GMDC only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to GMDC’s websites choose to interact with GMDC in ways that require GMDC to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that GMDC gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive updates via email, we collect their emails and names. When we collect information such as name, address, telephone, passport information and other details it is used by us to facilitate travel reservations you have asked us to make with our various contracted travel providers. In each case, GMDC collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with GMDC. GMDC does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities or prevent a completed travel service reservation.
This Privacy Policy covers the use of by GMDC and does not cover the use of personally-identifying information by any advertisers or travel providers.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

GMDC discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, such as travel hospitality service operators and their intermediaries that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on GMDC’s behalf or to provide services available at GMDC’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using GMDC’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. GMDC will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, GMDC discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when GMDC believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of GMDC, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an GMDC website and have supplied your email address, GMDC may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with GMDC and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. GMDC takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
