3. PRIVACY POLICY

This Privacy Policy sets out how GoTripps uses and protects any information that you provide us when you use this website.

GoTripps is highly committed to ensuring your privacy at all times when using our website. We only collect your contact information in order to respond to your inquiries and to deliver services and information about our products or website. We will not use your personal information for any other purpose. Furthermore, we will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties, unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so.

You must understand that our website displays banners and search engines that offer products and services from third-party companies. If you choose to browse and/or purchase the products and services that are accessible through our website, you’ll be redirected to a third-party website that may require your personal information (including, but not limited to, your name, email, home address and banking details) in order to complete your eventual purchases.

Cookies

A cookie is a little message given to a web browser by a web server. The browser stores the message in a text file. The message is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. Cookies are totally harmless and their only function is to help the user’s browser to navigate the website and fully use all its features.

Most of the advertisements you see on the GoTripps website are generated by third parties. Some of these third parties generate their own cookies to track how many people have seen a particular advertisement (or use the services of third parties to do this), and to track how many people have seen it more than once. These cookies cannot be used to identify an individual; they can only be used for statistical purposes, for example, in providing you with advertisements that are more relevant to your interests.

The third party companies that generate these cookies have their own - and very strict - Privacy Policies, and GoTripps does not have access to these cookies; other than allowing them to be served, we have no role to play in these cookies at all (although we may use statistical information arising from these third party cookies, and provided to us by third parties, to improve the targeting of advertisements to users of the website).

GoTripps understands that you may have concerns about your privacy and confidentiality while online. Rest assured we are committed to protecting your privacy at all times when using our website. If you have any additional questions about our Privacy Policy, please contact us.

4. DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY AND INDEMNITY

The website owner shall not be responsible for and disclaims all liability for any loss, damage (whether direct, indirect or consequential), personal injury or expense of any nature whatsoever which may be suffered by you or any third party (including your company), as a result of or which may be attributable, directly or indirectly, to your access and use of the website, to the use of any information contained on the website, or to the transmission of your or your company’s personal information or material over our system.

You agree to indemnify and hold GoTripps and its employees and agents harmless from and against all liabilities, legal fees and other expenses in relation to any claims or actions brought against GoTripps arising out of any breach by you of this Terms of Use and Privacy Policy, or other liabilities (to the extent permitted by law) arising out of your use of this website. Your attorneys, legal representatives, administrators and/or heirs are obligated to honor, respect and enforce these statements.

5. GOVERNING LAW AND JURISDICTION

This agreement and all matters arising from it are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Federative Republic of Brazil, whose courts shall have exclusive jurisdiction over all disputes arising in connection with this Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

6. NOTIFICATION

GoTripps reserves the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the website for any reason, at its sole discretion, with or without notice to you. We may change this Terms of Use and Privacy Policy from time to time with or without notice to you.

You agree to review this agreement periodically to ensure that you are aware of any modifications. Your continued access or use of the website after the modifications have become effective shall be deemed your conclusive acceptance of the modified terms.
