privacy policy


Date of Last Revision: February 6, 2017


Trekerie recognizes the importance of protecting the personal privacy of its website visitors. This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) describes how we protect your personally identifiable information and data on the Trekerie website (the “Site”).

The Site is operated by Trekerie in its role as a referral source for travelers looking for qualified travel operators (each a “Travel Company”) to provide travel services. The Site is operated solely for the benefit of such travelers and Travel Companies. Your use of the Travel Company services, and any third party websites and resources, is at your own risk.

Information We Collect and How We Use and Protect It

You can visit the Site generally and learn about our services without providing personal information. However, in order to be able to help you to find the best travel agent to plan your trip, or as a Travel Company so that you may start working with us, you will need to provide some personal information. We may collect personally identifiable information such as your name, e-mail address, physical address, telephone numbers, login ID, password and other contact information that you voluntarily submit. Travel Companies will only be afforded access to a traveler’s personal information once we have decided that they are the best fit for your travel needs. We may use such personally identifiable information for the following purposes:

  • Registering you for our Services;
  • Contacting you to deliver certain Services or information you have requested;
  • Providing you with notices regarding services that you have purchased or may wish to purchase in the future;
  • Ensuring the functionality of the Site;
  • Protecting from unauthorized access and verifying your authorization to enter the Site;
  • Improving the quality and design of the Site and Services to create new features and functionality through the monitoring and analyzing of user activities and preferences.

We will also use your personally identifiable information as may be specifically described in the Site, in accordance with the published legal Terms of Use for such Site, and for other legally required or permissible purposes.

Social Media

We encourage our customers to post online about their trips and experiences (e.g. via the #trekerie) or on blogs or reviews. You understand that any personal information or content that you voluntarily disclose online (e.g. comments, feedback, complaints, ratings etc.) becomes publicly available and can be collected and used by others.

Similarly, you are aware that when you sign your posts/reviews, you may well be recognized. It is your responsibility to use an identifier with which you are comfortable.

Finally, we process your personal information only for the purposes for which it was collected and in accordance with this Privacy Policy. To the extent necessary for such purposes, we review our data collection, storage and processing practices to ensure that we only collect, store and process the personal information needed to provide or improve our Services. We take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information we process is accurate, complete, and current, but we depend on our users to update or correct their personal information whenever necessary.

We may employ procedural and technological measures that are reasonably designed to help protect your personal information from loss, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. We may use firewall protection, password protection, internal restrictions on which Trekerie employees have access to your personally identifiable information and other security measures to help prevent unauthorized access to your personally identifiable information.
