Site Registration, E-mail Subscriptions, E-mail Communications and Newsletters

199.flights's registration form may require users to provide basic contact and demographic information. We receive and store any information you enter on our Website or give us in any other way. This includes information that can easily identify you (“personal information”), including your first and last name, telephone number, postal and email addresses, user name and password.If 199.flights offers or facilitates any transactional services, this may also include billing information (such as your credit card number, cardholder name, and card expiration date). We may also request information about your travel plans, style, and preferences, including meal requests, seat selection, frequent flyer/hotel/car rental program information, and flight class, luggage, and ticketing options. You can choose not to provide information to us, but in general some information about you is required in order for you to receive relevant offerings from 199.flights and their partners and enjoy other benefits of being a registered member. We use or may use your contact information (such as email address) from the registration form to send you newsletters and occasional information about our services and partners. You may opt-out of receiving future communications; see the Opting-Out of Further Communications section below.

In the future, in order to customize your experience with our email newsletters, we may receive a confirmation when you open email from 199.flights if your computer supports such capabilities. Clicking on a link in a 199.flights newsletter may also be tracked on a per user basis to allow us to present content, which closely matches your interests. Demographic and profile data (such as state, zip code, age, or gender) may be used to customize your experience at our site or in our email newsletters, showing you content and advertising that may best suit your needs. This information is shared with advertisers and other third parties on an aggregate or non-identifiable basis only.

If, in the future, you enter 199.flights via a reward or incentive program, 199.flights may share your email address with the program through which you entered 199.flights to ensure you are credited with your incentive.

You may also register for 199.flights and/or specific 199.flights newsletters at web sites operated by third parties. These third parties may share contact, demographic or profile data that you voluntarily provide during the registration process with 199.flights. You also may provide personal information to third parties when you register at a third party web site and specifically request that your information be forwarded to us so that we can send you information about our product and service offerings. 199.flights does or may in the future use this information in the same manner as information collected directly by 199.flights. This Privacy Policy does not bind sites that collect information on behalf of 199.flights, and 199.flights is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such web sites.

If you access third party services, such as social media services, through 199.flights or before coming to the Site, we may collect information such as your user name, password, and other information made available to us through those services in order to improve and personalize your use of the Site.

To better serve you, we may also store information you present to us via email or telephone communications with 199.flights's Customer Service Department. This information is or may be used in the same manner as information directly collected using 199.flights's registration form. We may also use information you provide us via email or telephone to pursue the matter for which you contacted us. 199.flights also may obtain information from you in our online forums. This information may not be disclosed except as consistent with Terms of Use.

In order to better communicate with registered users about their registration status, 199.flights may acquire information about users from third-party sources, including but not limited to a users mailing address. The information collected will only be shared, if at all, on an aggregate basis only with third parties.

Display of Advertising/Your Choices

Data collected to serve you with relevant advertising

199.flights and its affiliated websites are committed to providing you with relevant content and information across our sites. To do this, we may collect information about your travel-related searches, such as whether you are looking for airline flights or hotels, and use this information to serve you with ads on our sites or elsewhere online that match your apparent interests. So, for example, if you search for a flight to Florida on 199.flights, you may see an ad for a Floridatravel package on 199.flights or on another website you visit.

We do not share your personal information (such as email addresses) with unaffiliated third parties so they can serve you with advertisements. You can choose not to receive relevant online advertising on other Web sites, based on your travel-related searches on 199.flights by clicking http://www.networkadvertising.org /managing/opt_out.asp.

Data collected by business partners and ad networks to serve you with relevant advertising

Many of the advertisements you see on the 199.flights are served by 199.flights or its service partners. But we also allow third parties to collect information about your online activities through cookies and other technologies. These third parties include (1) business partners, who collect information when you view or interact with one of their advertisements on our sites, and (2) advertising networks, who collect information about your interests when you view or interact with one of the advertisements they place on many different Web sites on the Internet. The information gathered by these third parties is used to make predictions about your characteristics, interests or preferences and to display advertisements on our sites and across the Internet tailored to your apparent interests.

Please note that we do not have access to or control over cookies or other technologies these third parties may use to collect information about your interests, and the information practices of these third parties are not covered by this Privacy Policy. Some of these companies are members of the http://www.networkadvertising.org/, which offers a single location to opt out of ad targeting from member companies. To learn more, please http://www.networkadvertising.org/ managing/opt_out.asp.

Response to Do Not Track signals

Your web browser may transmit a “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) signal to 199.flights and other websites. Because of differences in web browsers’ default settings and the manner in which browsers incorporate DNT signals, it is sometimes unclear to site operators whether site visitors have selected the DNT setting themselves, or whether they are aware that they have a choice in determining the setting. 199.flights does not currently respond to DNT signals. Once the Internet industry has settled on standards related to this issue and 199.flights recognizes such standards, we may reevaluate this approach.

You can change the privacy settings of your Device at any time, in order to turn off the functionality to share location information with the Application and/or the functionality to tag your photos with location information.
