    Our Commitment To Privacy

    Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we provide a link to it on our homepage and every full page in our site and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.

    The Information We Collect:

    This notice applies to all information collected or submitted on the ThereArePlaces website.

    Personal information collection by and for ThereArePlaces is limited to the following circumstance -  On some pages we provide email addresses so that you may contact us with questions.  The emails that you send to these addresses are not stored on our ThereArePlaces website.  In addition, we do not use the email addresses you may provide to us for any reason other than to respond to your correspondence.


    We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our website. These companies may collect information (which does not include your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.

    Non-Google Advertisements On ThereArePlaces

    A tracking ID is placed by some of our vendors (advertisers) on some of the advertisement contained in this site to identify the transaction with our website. Clicking these advertisements sends you to a site describing the product.  The link that takes you to the site identifies ThereArePlaces as the originator of the request to the vendor.  We receive no information about the link or you. 

    If you click on the non-Google  advertisements on our site you will be connected to the server of the company who placed the advertisement with us.  These companies may request personal information from you to fill orders or provide information that you requested.  The information you may provide to any advertiser is not shared with ThereArePlaces.  If you should purchase the product or service, we will receive a small referral fee, based on the advertisers ability to identify the ThereArePlaces website, based on the tracking code. 

  • Google Advertisements On ThereArePlaces

    In March of 2009 , we were advised by Google, that  in April 2009, they intend to begin using the DoubleClick DART cookie in  the system which Google uses to serve ads on our website. (The Google ads are clearly marked Ads by Google.) 

    The DoubleClick DART cookie is used by Google in the ads served on all  websites  that publish or display Google's AdSense for content ads.  When users visit an AdSense publisher's website and either view or click on an ad, a cookie may be dropped, by Google, on that end user's browser. The data gathered from these cookies will be used to help AdSense publishers better serve and manage the ads on their site(s) and across the web.

    Google has asked us to tell you that

    • Google, as a third party vendor to ThereArePlaces, uses cookies to serve ads on our site.
    • Google's use of the DART cookie enables it to serve ads to you based on your visit to ThereArePlaces and other sites on the Internet.
    • Users may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy.

    Please note that the cookies are placed in your browser by Google and the information these cookies provide is collected by Google, not ThereArePlaces.  It is our understanding that Google is taking these steps to help them develop "interest-based advertising" that may provide you more relevant advertisements targeted at the type of information Google believes is important to you based on information provided in the cookie.

    The Way We Use Information gathered by ThereArePlaces:

    We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.

    We use non-identifying, aggregate visitor information to better design our website and to share with potential advertisers to help them understand our user base. For example, we may tell an advertiser that "15,000 visitors examined our Paris Guide last month and viewed an average of 4 pages of the guide). To be honest, we do not know who you are or track the pages you as an individual visit on our website.  We do know that we receive traffic from specific Internet Service Providers in specific geographies (e.g. 2000 users from Cox Communications in Orange County, California), but the data we receive contains no  specific information about individuals.

    Our Commitment To Data Security

    To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

    Our Commitment To Children's Privacy:

    Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we do not collect or maintain information at our website that would allow us to determine the age of any user.  No part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13 years of age.  In addition, our presentation of travel information has been structured to reflects family values.

    How To Contact Us
