to change. Any such changes will be posted on this page. Please
see the Effective Date stated at the conclusion of this Policy.
1. SECURITY: When you send confidential personal
information to Us on a Events West Tours & Travel website, We
require that a “secure session” first be established
using Secure Socket Layer (SSL)
protocol. Events West Tours & Travel
maintains reasonable safe guards to ensure the security, integrity
and privacy of the Personal Information that you provide. To the
extent Events West Tours & Travel transfers any Personal Information
to third-parties, Events West Tours & Travel will use reasonable
efforts to assure that such third-parties to whom We transfer any
Personal Information have knowledge of our Policy and adhere to our Policy in order to provide sufficient
protection of such Personal Information.

not gathered by Your accessing and browsing the Sites. Some of our
Sites, however, may request that You voluntarily supply Us with
Personal Information, including Your E-mail address, for purposes
such as correspondence, site registration, checking Your bill or
reservations online, making a purchase, or participating in online
Like many other commercial websites, the Sites may utilize a standard
technology called a “cookie” to collect information
about how our site is used. A “cookie” is a small text
file placed on your hard drive by our web page server. These cookies
do not collect personally identifiable information, and We do not
combine information collected through cookies with other personal
information to determine who you are or your e-mail address. The
Sites can only access the information from a cookie sent by the
Sites. We cannot access other cookies sent by other web sites or
the information contained therein. Additionally, We cannot learn
Your email address or any other information about You through the
use of a cookie. The only way We would learn such information is
if You specifically submit that information to Us, for example,

the Sites. By tracking usage, We can best determine what features
of the Site best serve the users. We never give out information
to others about individual usage. However, We do provide third parties
with aggregate information about our users, such as “2,000
people viewed Your ad today,” as more fully set forth below.
On those pages of the Sites that do not require registration, You
may decline to accept cookies sent by the Sites by selecting an
option on Your browser to reject cookies. However, some portions
of the Sites may require registration in order to access those areas.
In such case, We ask that You register and provide Us with basic
information on our registration page. Cookies enable our server
to know that You are a registered user; therefore, our registration
system requires that You accept the cookies from the Sites. Other
sites linked to the Site may also send cookies; however We do not
control such activities.

send You E-mail offers. We may use information You have given us

consumer interest in our various services and inform You about the
products and services. These offers may be based on information
You provided in Your initial transaction with Us, in surveys, from
information that may indicate purchasing preferences and lifestyles,
as well as information available from external sources such as census

West Tours & Travel or its subsidiaries.
All offers are carefully developed to ensure that they meet our
