Making a Purchase
In order to purchase travel and related services
through our site, you must provide us with certain
personal information such as your name, your credit
card number and expiration date, your credit card
billing address, your telephone number, your e-mail
address and the name or names of the person(s) traveling
(if not you). We may also ask you for other personal

fulfill and confirm your reservations and transactions
and keep you informed of each transaction's status.
If you are making a reservation for one or more
travelers other than yourself, you will need to
make sure that each of these other travelers agrees,
in advance, that you may disclose their personal
information to us. For your convenience, we make
certain information about your reservation available
to you or other persons authorized by you to receive
such information. For example, if you forgot your
tour date, you or another person authorized by you
may retrieve that information from us after providing
information sufficient in our eyes to confirm your
identity or that such other person is authorized
by you to receive that information.
Automatic Logging of Session Data
We automatically log generic information about your
computer's connection to the Internet, which we
call "session data".. Session data consists of things
such as IP address, operating system and type of
browser software being used and the activities conducted
by the user while on our site. An IP address is
a number that lets computers attached to the Internet,
such as our web servers, know where to send data
back to the user, such as the pages of the site
the user wishes to view. We collect session data
because it helps us analyze such things as what
items visitors are likely to click on most, the
way visitors are clicking through the site, how
many visitors are surfing to various pages on the
site, how long visitors to the site are staying
and how often they are visiting. It also helps us
diagnose problems with our servers and lets us better
administer our systems. It is possible to determine
from an IP address a visitor's Internet Service
Provider (ISP) and the approximate geographic location
of his or her point of connectivity.
