What we collect
When making a reservation:
When you make a reservation online or by phone through our customer support
center, you will be asked for your name, address, phone number, e-mail address
and credit card information. This information is used to contact you for
customer service, to guaranty your reservation with our travel suppliers and/or
to bill you for your travel purchase. We may also ask you for other personal
information, such as your frequent traveler numbers. During the booking process
you can choose not to receive our newsletter or travel reminders by unchecking
the appropriate boxes on the online form. Thereafter, if you would rather not
receive them, please click on the "unsubscribe" link or follow the instructions
in each e-mail message.
Some of Wentrips online booking engines are powered by third-party vendors. You
should note that these vendors may have privacy policies and practices that
differ from those of Wentrip. We strongly encourage you to read the privacy
policies of these vendors when using their websites.
Wentrip provides electronic postcards cards via our websites and our affiliate
websites for you to send to a friend. We store the e-mail address of all
recipients, the message you want to send and the URL for locating the greeting
card. We do not sell, distribute, or license in anyway the use of recipient
e-mail addresses. We use them solely for the purposes of notifying recipients on
your behalf that a card is waiting for them at the designated URL. After 30
days, all information pertaining to your postcard is deleted.
