PRIVACY POLICY

By accessing our Website or mobile apps and utilising our services, you acknowledge that you have read understood this Privacy Policy and the information collection and handling practices outlined in it.

We understand that providing information online involves a great deal of trust on your part. We take this trust very seriously, and make it a high priority to ensure the security and confidentiality of the personal information you provide to us when you visit our Website, Apps or use our services.

We receive and store any information you enter on our Website, Apps or give us in any other way. This includes information that can be used to identify you as an individual or to contact you directly ("personal information").

Personal information includes information you provide us such as your first and last name, telephone number, postal and email addresses, user name and password, and billing information (such as your credit card number, cardholder name, and card expiration date). We may also request information about your travel plans.

You can choose not to provide this personal information to us, but in general some information about you is required in order for you to receive relevant offerings from Adventure Junky. For example, only registered members are able to score points or add adventures, enter surveys, contests, or sweepstakes. In addition, some information is also required in order for you to ask us a question or initiate other transactions on our site.

Other information we may choose to collect may also include details such as your IP address, information identifying your device, and website browsing history to the extent that information is about you.

You will have the opportunity to provide contact and travel-related information for other people through our Website and Apps. If you make a reservation for someone else through Adventure Junky, you will need to submit that individual's personal information. You must obtain the consent of other individuals prior to providing us with their personal information, as any access to view or modify their information will be available only through your account.

If you make travel reservations with third-party suppliers facilitated by Adventure Junky, we may collect payment information from you, including your credit card number, cardholder name, expiration date, authentication code, and billing address. We will securely transmit this information to the supplier of the travel reservation to complete the transaction. Please note that the supplier processes your payment, not Adventure Junky, unless otherwise specified. You agree to review and be bound by the supplier's policies and procedures before making a reservation through Adventure Junky.

We may collect information about your location if you have instructed your Device to send such information to the Application via the privacy settings on that Device, or if you have uploaded photos tagged with location information. We may use the location information collected from your Device or photos to enhance your use of the Application by providing you with relevant content and contextual advertising. 

You can change the privacy settings of your Device at any time, in order to turn off the functionality to share location information with the Application and/or the functionality to tag your photos with location information. Please note that turning off location sharing may affect certain features of our App. If you have any queries about the privacy settings of your Device, we suggest you contact the manufacturer of your Device or your mobile service provider for help.
