If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
How Information may be Used
We may use the information collected in the following ways:
- To operate and maintain the website;
- To send you promotional information, such as newsletters. Each email promotion will provide information on how to opt-out of future mailings;
- To respond to your comments or inquiries;
- To provide you with user support;
- To send you administrative communications, such as administrative emails, confirmation emails, technical notices, updates on policies, or security alerts;
- To protect, investigate, and deter against unauthorized or illegal activity.
We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Service, to provide the Service on our behalf, to perform Service-related services or to assist us in analyzing how our Service is used.
These third parties have access to your Personal Information only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.
Epic Travel Plans uses the following third-party services and each one has their own respective privacy policies to determine the use of your personal information:
This service tracks website usage and provides information such as referring websites and user actions on the website. Google Analytics may capture your IP address, but no other personal information is captured by Google Analytics.
This service is used to prevent comment spam. Information is collected about visitors who submit a comment, which may include the commenter’s IP address, user agent, referrer, and Site URL (along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself).
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Links To Other Sites
We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites or services.
How Long Your Data is Retained
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
Newsletter subscription information is retained indefinitely to continue to provide our Service. Each newsletter will provide an easy way to opt out of receiving future emails, at which point your information will be removed from our database.
Contact form entries are retained for six months. Analytics records are retained for two years.
You may contact Epic Travel Plans to access, correct, update or request deletion of your personal information.
