a.) What information is collected and how is it collected?
Every computer connected to the Internet is given a domain name and a set of numbers that serve as that computer’s Internet Protocol (IP) address. When a visitor requests a page from any website within the Travel Hippi network, our web servers automatically recognize the visitor’s domain name and IP address. The domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about you, other than the IP address from which you have accessed our site. We use this information to examine our traffic in aggregate, but do not collect and evaluate this information for individuals. Our web servers do not record e-Mail addresses of the visitors.
b.) What are cookies?
From time to time, Travel Hippi may send a cookie to your computer. A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. A cookie can’t read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. Cookies do not damage your system. You can choose whether or not to accept cookies by changing the settings of your browser. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies, or allow your browser to show you when a cookie is being sent.

c.) What other information is requested?
We may request your e-Mail address for the purpose of providing additional services for example, subscriptions to e-Mail newsletters or announcement lists. Whenever we request the identity of a visitor, we will clearly indicate the purpose of the inquiry before the information is requested. We maintain a strict “No Spam” policy that means that we do not intend to sell, rent, or otherwise give your e-Mail address to a third-party, without your consent. In addition, Travel Hippi will not send you e-Mail that you have not agreed to receive. We may from time to time send e-Mail announcing new Travel Hippi products and services.
