In case a user uploads pictures to the image gallery or as part of a review or forum post, then these pictures would be visible to the general public. Therefore, a user should upload only those pictures that they would want to make public.
A significant part of the service on this website depends on the information that travellers provide ###### the service that they have received from guides and other service providers. In case a user or traveller provides personal information ###### these guides, or any other people, or uploads pictures and so forth of other people, he should ensure that he has their consent to do so.

  • Do Not Track Browser Disclosure

Do Not Track ("DNT") is a privacy preference that users can set in certain web browsers. DNT is a way for users to inform websites and services that they do not want certain information ###### their webpage visits collected over time and across websites or online services.
We are committed to providing you with meaningful choices ###### the information collected on our Websites for third party purposes, and that is why we provide the NAI "Consumer Opt-out" link and the DAA opt-out link above. However, we do not recognize or respond to browser-initiated DNT signals, as the Internet industry is currently still working toward defining exactly what DNT means, what it means to comply with DNT, and a common approach to responding to DNT.

  • Compliance With Legal Process

We may disclose personal information (1) if we believe such sharing is appropriate to comply with the law or with legal process; (2) to protect and defend our rights, services or property; (3) to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of the Services; or (4) to protect the safety or property of our users or any member of the public (among other things, this means that if we believe you have provided false information or attempted to pose as someone else, information ###### you may be disclosed as part of any investigation into your actions).
