Collection and Handling of Personal Information.
We do collect personal information when you sign into our website (or mobile app), register or update a member profile, submit a survey, or submit a form. The personal information collected and stored by Passport Unlimited is limited to the data in your member profile, including: first and last name, email address, city, state, country and mobile device identifier. When you use the Passport Unlimited mobile app through your device, we collect your device identifier. We use that identifier to send you notifications and provide access to our services on your device. Additionally, your IP address will be temporarily stored in our log files but is never associated to your member profile. We will not intentionally collect or use any sensitive information, such as any personal information specifying medical or health conditions, personal sexuality, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious, ideological or trade union-related views or activities or information on social security measures or administrative or criminal proceedings and sanctions.
We will not disclose any of your personal information to third parties other than the entity or organization through whom you obtained your membership, such as, for example, your employer, credit union, insurance carrier or building manager and other than as expressly provided for herein. We may also transmit and store your personal information with third party service providers and data controllers as part of the platform and infrastructure necessary for us to provide the services to you. These third parties include but are not limited to cloud storage and cloud computing service providers, co-location services providers, database and image mirroring service providers, backup services and others. Under certain circumstances, we may be required to disclose your personal information in response to valid requests by public authorities to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
When you visit our websites we may also gather certain information, including activity metrics, automatically and store it in log files. This information may include, Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, member identifier or other device identifiers, browser information, Internet Service Provider (ISP), operating system, location, date/time stamp and clickstream and activity event data. Some of this information is generated as part of the basic internet infrastructure and is necessary to provide the services to you. We also use this information to improve our website, mobile app and other services and we may apply various third party analytics tools in reviewing your personal data.
With your permission through opt in on the website or mobile app, we will use your personal information to send you newsletters, information about Passport Unlimited, or other promotional materials. Whether or not you opt in, we reserve the right to provide notices or messages to you of a transactional or relationship nature as permitted by, and as those terms are defined in, the CAN-SPAM Act. We may also update our mobile applications to offer automatic (or "push") notifications. We will provide push notifications only to those customers who opt-in to receive such notifications. If you have questions about location and notification privacy, please contact your mobile service provider or the manufacturer of your device to learn how to adjust your settings.
We maintain reasonable procedures to help ensure that personal information is reliable for its intended use, accurate, complete and current. The Personal Information you provide us for registration or login via our website, mobile apps or webforms will be entered and transmitted using 256-bit (or greater) SSL encryption. Such information is stored behind a firewall on a secure server but not in an encrypted form. However, please recognize that email, and other methods of communication such as texting, is not encrypted and cannot be made secure. We therefore advise that you do not send any confidential or personal information such as credit card or account numbers to us through an unsecured email or text. Furthermore, there is no guarantee that even encrypted information transmitted by encrypted means can ever be 100% secure. We therefore disclaim any and all liability for disclosure of profile or personal information, regardless of whether such liability arises from errors in transmission or unauthorized acts of third parties, or for any other reason, and we are not responsible for transactions between you and the third party vendors who provide you with goods and services or for any occurrences of fraudulent or alleged fraudulent or wrongful or unauthorized activity relating to any credit, debit or payment card or other method of payment or for information you share with such vendors nor for the security of your transactions with the vendors or of personal or sensitive information transmitted by you to the vendors and stored and used by the vendors, whether transmitted through the Program website, through hyperlinks or direct by you to the vendor.
Although you do not have to provide your location information to Passport Unlimited to use our mobile applications, our services may require your current city, state and country location to function to maximize your options for finding vendors near you. You may manually enter a partial address and we will save your entry(ies) for future reference. Alternatively, when you download or install our mobile application, you may choose to allow it to obtain your precise location from your mobile device when you click the "current location” button and we will determine your location from the precise location data received from your mobile device. We do store precise location data, unless you opt out, and we do store the zip code or partial address associated with your location.
Aggregate Information; Customer Comments/Suggestions.
We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website and to share with advertisers and internet analytical companies such as Google and Yahoo. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, or that Y number of men and Z number of women filled out our registration form, but we would not disclose any Personal Information to the vendors that could be used to identify those individuals. We use web forms throughout our website (or mobile app) for customer comments and suggestions. We will make an effort to respond to your questions or comments in a prompt manner. Any information we collect from emails or web forms is used for the purpose of responding to your questions or comments. We may also file your comments to improve our site (or mobile app) and program, or review and discard the information.
We send a "session cookie" to your computer when you log in to your account or otherwise use the Services. This type of cookie helps us to recognize you if you visit multiple pages on our site during the same session, so that we don't need to ask you for your password on each page. Once you log out or close your browser, this cookie expires and no longer has any effect.
We also use longer-lasting cookies for other purposes such as the "remember me" feature to display your e-mail address or account access information on our sign-in form, so that you don't need to retype the e-mail address each time you log in to your account or to use the service.
We encode our cookies so that only we can interpret the information stored in them. You are free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, but doing so may interfere with your use of our website. We may also collect information about your computer or other access device to mitigate risk of a broken work flow or transmission and for a transaction tailored experience.
You may encounter cookies from third parties when accessing or linking to the vendor services on their websites. We do not control those websites or the cookies that may exist in such situations (for example, if you link to or view a web page created by a third party vendor or use an application developed by a third party, there may be a cookie placed by that web page or application.)
California Privacy Rights.
California law entitles residents to ask us for a notice describing what categories of personal information we share with third parties or with corporate affiliates for those entities direct marketing purposes. Passport Unlimited does not provide any personal information to third parties for their own direct marketing purposes.
Changes to this Policy.
1. Acceptance of Terms and Conditions
2. Billing Transactions
Occasionally, Passport Unlimited may make additional for-fee membership features available to you. When performing a transaction which requires billing (such as when subscribing to a membership upgrade) you will be asked to provide additional information, including: credit card number, credit card security code, and billing address. Billing information is used solely for billing purposes and is not stored by Passport Unlimited. When provided on line or through the mobile app, your credit card information is securely transmitted to and stored with our credit card processor (currently Authorize.Net) and is not available to Passport Unlimited staff unless you provide such information through a phone call with a Passport Unlimited staff member.
Annual membership upgrades are always billed at a pro-rated rate. For example: if you purchased a $100 annual upgrade with 200 days remaining in your membership period, you would be charged $54.79 (200/365 days * $100). Annual membership upgrades cannot be cancelled and are non-refundable. Monthly membership subscription upgrades are billed at the time of purchase, and each following month in 1-month intervals. For example: if you subscribed to a $10 monthly upgrade on July 5th, you would be billed $10 when you subscribe, and $10 on the 5th of each subsequent month. You may cancel a monthly subscription at any time. When you cancel, you will retain access to the upgrade features thru the end of your current billing cycle and will not receive a pro-rata refund of your monthly subscription fee.
