Thank you for using ASIA Travel Tips.com.
Tips.com for the simple reason that most Privacy Policies have a
clause that state that it may change at any time. It was for this
reason, that we never publicly displayed our policy even though as
a company, we have always had a very strict internal Privacy
Policy which is followed to the letter. In addition to this,
know most of us here never do.
Further down you can
it really is very simple. Any information that we obtain from you
be it, your email, name or other information is never sold or
given to any third party (this excludes hotel reservations where
your details are shared between us and the hotel where you are
making the reservation). We never send out unsolicited email to
any of our users at any time. If you feel that you have been
receiving something from us which you should not, then please let
us know and we will immediately look into the matter. We respect
your privacy, in exactly the same way as we respect our own.
Our hotel reservations are made through an encrypted and secure
SSL connection meaning that the information your provide when
making a reservation is shared only with us and the hotel where
you are making the reservation. Also, because many users
startedasking for immediate confirmations to their hotel
reservations we signed up with a third party that allows
us to do just that. This added convenience however does
into effect once you pass from our site to theirs.
