Privacy Policy

 

Last updated: June 29, 2016

 

Pointour (“I”, “my”, or “me”) operates pointourwinona.com (the “Site”) and walking tours (the “Tours”). This page informs you of my policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information I receive from users of the Site.

 

I use your Personal Information only for providing and improving the Site and the Tours. By using the Site, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with the Policy.

 

Information Collection and Use

 

While using my Site, I may ask you to provide me with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact you, identify you, and/or improve your customer experience before, after and on the Tours. Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to, your name, phone number, email address and birth date (“Personal Information”). If you wish to avoid providing me with this information, enter “N/A” in any required text fields and zeros in any required number fields when booking online. You will still receive the service I provide, but be aware that choosing not to provide your email address will prevent me from sending you a confirmation email and reminder, and that choosing not to provide other information may prevent me from communicating effectively with you should a problem arise.

 

Pointour does not collect credit card data. Credit card data is processed through GISO, the online booking provider. GISO’s terms of service, which include information on their privacy policy, can be viewed at their website, giso.co. You can also gather more information regarding the safety of your transaction on the booking page in the right sidebar, by clicking on the question “Is this transaction safe?”.

 

Log Data

 

Like many site operators, I collect information that your browser sends whenever you visit my Site (“Log Data”).

 

This Log Data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser version, the pages of my Site that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages, and other statistics. However, all of this data is used in aggregate, and I am unable to track any personal information you give. To see Squarespace’s (the “Host”) privacy policy, visit https://www.squarespace.com/privacy.

 

In addition, I may use third party services such as Google Analytics that collect, monitor and analyze your use of my Site in order to create reports on your activities and share the data collected with other Google services. Google may use this data to target and customize advertisements on its advertising network. However, I am prohibited from sending Google Analytics any information that could be used to identify you, such as your name and email address. You may view Google’s privacy policy at http://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/ or learn more information about safeguarding your data at https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en. You may also prohibit Google Analytics from collecting information about you by installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. Further information about this option can be found by visiting https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/181881.

 

Communications

 

I may use your Personal Information to contact you with information regarding the Tours, which may include and is not limited to marketing or promotional materials. You may choose to opt out of these communications at any time by contacting me using the information given below. If you are put on a mailing list, a link to an “Unsubscribe” page should appear towards the bottom of the email.

 

Cookies

 

Cookies are files with small amounts of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a website and stored on your computer’s hard drive.

 

Like many sites, I use “cookies” to collect information. You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of my Site.

 

Links

 

My Site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that I am not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. I encourage my users to be aware when they leave my site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.

 

Security

 

The security of your Personal Information is important to me, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While I strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, I cannot guarantee its absolute security.

 

Changes to This Privacy Policy

 

This Privacy Policy is effective as of June 29, 2016 and will remain in effect except with respect to any changes in its provisions in the future, which will be in effect immediately after being posted on this page.

 

I reserve the right to update or change my Privacy Policy at any time and you should check this Privacy Policy periodically. Your continued use of the Site and service after I post any modifications to the Privacy Policy on this page will constitute your acknowledgement of the modifications and your consent to abide and be bound by the modified Privacy Policy.

 

If I make any material changes to this Privacy Policy, I will notify you either through the email address you have provided or by placing a prominent notice on my website for one week following the changes.
