Cookies


Like many websites, we also use "cookie" technology to collect additional website usage data and to improve the Site and our products and services. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computer's hard disk. We do not use cookies to collect personally identifiable information. We may use both session cookies and persistent cookies to better understand how you interact with the Site and our products and services, to monitor aggregate usage by our users and web traffic routing on the Site, and to improve the Site and our products and services. A session cookie enables certain features of the Site and our products and services and is deleted from your computer when you disconnect from or leave the Site. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the Site. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser help file directions. Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. You can instruct your browser, by editing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit.

Information Sharing and Disclosure


The information we gather is used to create and maintain your travel itineraries and your travel profile and, if you have elected to receive them, send you marketing messages on behalf of JetZet and our travel partners. We also use the information that we gather to target content on our Site to more closely match your interests and, if you have selected to receive email communication from us, target email marketing messages that are more appropriate to your needs.

When you use our products and services, the personal information you provide will be shared with the third parties you designate for access to such information including other web sites, your friends, relatives and business associates.

Depending upon the type of access you grant to such third parties, they may also be permitted to edit the information you have provided to us and to designate others to access and edit such information. You may change your settings at any time as to who has access to your information by going to your account settings and then changing your publishing options.

Certain portions of the information you provide to us also may be displayed in your public profile. As an essential element of the services we offer, most of the personal information you explicitly provide to us when you register or update your profile is displayed on your public profile. In order for your profile to be made public you must go to your profile settings and then profile visibility. By default your profile is not for public viewing. Once displayed on publicly viewable web pages, that information can be collected and used by others. We cannot control who reads your posting or what other users may do with the information you voluntarily post, so it is very important that you do not put personally identifiable or other private information in your posts. Once you have posted information publicly, while you will still be able to edit and delete it on the Site, you will not be able to edit or delete such information cached, collected and stored elsewhere by others (e.g., search engines).

In general, most of your travel related information, such as upcoming destinations and travel statistics, is displayed only to other JetZet members to whom you have specifically connected as part of your JetZet network. You can change your privacy settings to designate which types of information are shared and with whom by visiting Privacy Policy page.

In addition, we may share your personal information as follows:

  1. When we believe it is appropriate to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal or suspected illegal activities; to protect and defend the rights, property, or safety of JetZet, our users or others; and in connection with the enforcement of our User Agreement;
  2. In connection with a corporate transaction, such as a divestiture, merger, consolidation, or asset sale, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy;
  3. As required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Web site; or
  4. To respond to claims, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of JetZet or others. This includes, but is not limited to, fraud, technical malfunctions or abuse of our network or systems. We also may provide user information to third parties for the purpose of resolving disputes that arise in the normal course of business.

From time to time, we also may share general information about our Site, users, and visitors such as the number of visitors, aggregate and/or non-personally identifiable demographic and travel data, etc., with third parties.

In addition to the foregoing, we engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to us, including, without limitation, hosting and maintenance, customer relationship, database storage and management, and direct marketing campaigns. We will share your personally identifiable information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these functions and provide such services, and only pursuant to binding contractual obligations requiring such third parties to maintain the privacy and security of your data.

You will also have the choice to authorize third party websites and mobile applications to access your travel information as part of their service to you. The reason for allowing this authorization is to make it easier for you to access your travel information on a mobile device and to more easily incorporate your travel information with your personal and professional calendars. Other than as set forth in this Privacy Policy, we will not share, sell, rent or trade your personal information with third parties other than as described within this privacy policy.

Third-Party Advertising


From time to time, we may use a third-party advertising company to serve advertising on our behalf. Through the use of cookies or other technology devices such as action tags, this third-party ad-serving company can measure the effectiveness of our ads. We do not have access to the third-party server's cookies, which are similar to our own cookies. The third-party ad server employs an action tag (also known as a web beacon or a one-pixel .gif file) to set or read cookies. The third-party ad server may also receive specific information about your use of our products and services and use information about your visits to this Site and other web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services that may be of interest to you. Rest assured that this shared information is anonymous and does not contain any personally identifiable information (i.e. such information does not include your name, address, email address, or telephone number).

Sweepstakes


We may occasionally offer Site visitors an opportunity to participate in a survey, contest or sweepstakes. Information we collect for such a survey, contest or sweepstakes will be subject to the same protection as the information we generally collect from our users

Testimonials and User Feedback


We often receive testimonials and comments from users who have had positive experiences with our Service. We occasionally publish such content. When we publish this content, we may identify our users by their first name and the first letter of their last name and may also indicate their home city. You agree that such testimonials and comments constitute "Feedback" subject to the User Agreement and you grant us the right to publish your first name, the first letter or your last name and your home city in connection with our use of such Feedback.

Changing or Deleting Information


In the Account Settings section you may make changes to or delete inaccuracies in your account and change your email address, password, privacy settings, or contact information etc. If you cannot update your personal identifiable information on your own, please send us an email at: support@JetZet.com

Security


We maintain data handling and storage practices and procedures that are designed to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of the personally identifiable information and email addresses submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. Current Internet security methods and technologies are used to prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and ensure correct use of information. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information such as credit card number on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).

We will make any legally-required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored personal data to you via email or conspicuous posting on this Site without unreasonable delay, consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.

Links to Other Websites


Our Site contains links to other websites. The fact that we link to a website is not an endorsement, authorization or representation of our affiliation with that third party. We do not exercise control over third party websites. These other websites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit personally identifiable information from you. Other sites follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the personally identifiable information you submit to them. We encourage you to read the privacy policies or statements of the other websites you visit.

Our Policy towards Children


The Site is not directed to or intended for persons under the age of 13, and JetZet does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from users under the age of 13. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with personally identifiable information without their consent, he or she should contact us at: privacy@JetZet.com. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with personal identifiable information, we will delete such information from our files.

International Users - Applicable Law


We collect, process, store, disclose and dispose of personal information that you submit to us in accordance with applicable United States law. Please note that the personal information you submit to us will be transferred to the United States to be processed by us in order to provide this Site and our products and services to you or for such other purposes as set forth in this Privacy Policy. If you are not a resident of the United States, you acknowledge and agree that we may collect and use your personal information, as discussed in this Privacy Policy, outside your resident jurisdiction. In addition, we may store such personal information in the United States, outside your resident jurisdiction. In particular, you are advised that the United States uses a sectoral model of privacy protection that relies on a mix of legislation, governmental regulation and self-regulation. Please be aware that United States law may offer different levels of protection for personal information than may be available in your country.
