Privacy Policy Inc. ("VisitorsConnect") provides this notice explaining our online information practices and the way your personal information is collected and used, all in connection with the VisitorsConnect website and associated services (collectively, the "Service"). If you do not agree with the practices explained in this policy, do not use the Service, and if necessary, ask that your Account be cancelled. This policy applies only to information VisitorsConnect collects from you in connection with your use of the Service. By using the Service, and by checking the box indicating agreement with the Terms of Service during registration, you agree to accept the practices and terms set forth in this Privacy Policy. Capitalized terms not defined in this policy shall have the meaning set forth in the VisitorsConnect Terms of Service Agreement.


So that we can provide you with the most efficient and enhanced service, we collect your personal information as described in the rest of this section.


To create an Account on the Service, you must provide your email address. Your email address will be used for all messaging and notifications both originating within the Service and in our separate communications with you.

Profile Information

During the registration process or at anytime while you use the Service, you are encouraged to complete profile information for your Account. We collect information such as your name, age, country of origin, arrival and departure dates for your visit to the United States, languages you speak, hobbies, interests, etc. You acknowledge that providing this information allows other Users of the Service to search and find you to ask if you would like to connect with them. This information is also used by VisitorsConnect to suggest better matches to you for your User connections based on your profile data.

Third Party Services and Visiting Third party Sites

There may be links to third party sites on our website. For example, social media features, such as the Facebook "like" or "share" feature or the Twitter "tweet" button, are operated by third parties. These features may (at a minimum) collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our sites, and may set a cookie to enable the features to function properly, and will share that information (and potentially other information) with the relevant third party. This Privacy Policy does not apply to information users consent to give to third parties not affiliated with VisitorsConnect. Any information users give to another party is governed by the rules of that party's privacy policy, which may differ from this Privacy Policy. VisitorsConnect is not responsible for information given to other parties.


Visitors Connect Communications

We may use personal information in order to display custom, personalized content to our visitors and send newsletters, emails, features, promotional material, surveys and other updates to our users. A user may, at any time, opt out of receiving such information.

We also use collected information to evaluate and administer our service, respond to any problems that may arise and to gauge user trends to determine what part of our services are most popular with users. We will periodically communicate with our Users about such administrative matters. Users may not opt out of administrative communications regarding the Service except by terminating their Account.

We may extend offers to users on behalf of our partners about a particular product or service that may be of interest to you, but we will never give out your name or personal information at any time without your permission.

User Communications

Many communications that you initiate through our system, such as connect invites, will contain your name and email address in the message. Users who are connected with you may have the ability to view your complete information including your address, phone number and email. You do not have to accept any connect invitation.

We allow users of our Web site to send articles or links by email to other parties who may be interested in them. We do not retain any email to other parties who may be interested in them. We do not retain any email addresses (unless you are a user who already has voluntarily provided your email address as part of the registration process) of either the sender or receipt of such articles or links after they are sent.

Compliance with Legal Process and Other Disclosures

We reserve the right to use or disclose any information without notice or consent as needed to satisfy any law, regulation or legal request (e.g., subpoenas); to conduct investigations of consumer complaints or possible breaches of law; to protect the integrity of our site and our property; to protect the safety of our visitors or others; to fulfill your requests; or to cooperate in any legal investigation.

We may employ third party companies and individuals to administer and provide the Service on our behalf, (including, without limitation, bill and credit card payment processing, maintenance, administration, support, hosting and database management services). These third parties may have access to your personal information only to perform these tasks on our behalf in accordance with this Privacy Policy and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.

Personally identifiable information, including associated usage information, may be provided to a third party if there is a transfer of the assets or ownership of the Service or if VisitorsConnect files for bankruptcy.

Your information may be transferred to and stored on computers located outside of your local jurisdiction where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your jurisdiction. Your consent to this Privacy Policy followed by your submission of any personal information represents your agreement to that transfer. As an example, but not a limitation, if you're located outside the United States and choose to provide your personal information to us, we may transfer your personal information to the United States and process it here.

Voluntary Public Disclosure

You should be aware that if you voluntarily disclose information online (whether through the Service or any other services available online), personal or otherwise, that information could be collected and used by others. For example, if you use chat forums, bulletin boards, or our direct messaging capability (including sending connect invites) and you provide your e-mail or id in those venues, you may receive unsolicited messages from others. VisitorsConnect has no control over this use of your personal information.

Non-Personally identifiable and Aggregate Information

The non-personally identifiable information that we may gather includes your gender, age, zip code, country or territory of residence, IP address (but see the discussion at the end of this section), the type of browser that you use, and other aspects of your use of the Service. VisitorsConnect uses this information to improve the Service, conduct research, to analyze your and other Users' interest in the areas of the Service, to tailor advertising and content displayed to you and other Users, to inform our suppliers about the use of the Service, and to inform our advertisers about the number of Users that have viewed their advertising. To do this we may combine information that we have about you with information that we obtain from business partners or other companies. We may also release aggregate demographic information about User trends to partners and other third parties, including third-party advertisers on the Service. An example of this type of information would be patterns of use of the Service based on zip code or age group. We also retain aggregated log files of requested content in order to report overall product usage to content partners and to evaluate User trends.

Generally, an IP address changes each time you connect to the Internet (it is a "dynamic" address). Note, however, that if you have a broadband connection, depending on your individual circumstance, it is possible that your IP address that we collect, or even perhaps a cookie we use, may contain information that could be deemed identifiable. This is because with some broadband connections your IP address doesn't change (it is "static") or changes only infrequently and could be associated with your personal computer.


Your browser offers so-called "cookies" which, if you allow their use, store small amounts of data on your computer when you visit a Web site. We may use both session cookies and persistent cookies to identify that you've logged in to the Service and to tell us how and when you interact with our Service.  Cookies do not contain any personally identifiable information about you and therefore cannot be used to identify you personally. Unlike persistent cookies, session cookies are deleted when you log off from the Service and close your browser. Cookies assist us in tracking which of our features you like best. Cookies will also enable us to customize our content according to your preferences. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies by modifying your browser and our Web sites are viewable even if you disable cookies, some advanced and customized features of our site, as well as other Web sites, will not be available to you.

Some of the advertisements displayed in our Web sites are provided by outside companies. These ads may contain cookies.

Some of our Web pages may contain electronic images known as Web beacons, which are also called single-pixel gifs. These images allow us to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services. We also may include Web beacons in promotional e-mail messages or newsletters in order to count how many messages have been opened and acted upon. Web beacons are not used to access your personally identifiable information but they are a technique we use to compile aggregated statistics about our Web site usage. Web beacons collect only a limited set of information including a cookie number, time and date of a page view and a description of the page on which the Web beacon resides. Some of our Web pages may also contain Web beacons placed there by our advertising partners to help us determine the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns.
