1] contests and sweepstakes; [2] registration for specific activities [for example, bulletin boards or e-mail newsletters] or membership on our Site; [3] marketing surveys; and/or [4] during customer support or technical service requests. We do not require personal information to gain access to the Site, however you will not be able to access areas that require registration without disclosing personally identifiable information.

Information collected may include your name, address, phone number, and email address.

A user's personally identifying information will not be sold or rented to any other party without prior consent.

HipEcuador.com provides its users the opportunity to receive promotional information from it, its parent companies, subsidiaries and affiliates, as well as third party vendors. Such vendors include businesses offering special travel services and discounts. In such instances, HipEcuador™ will always provide an opt-in function when users submit personally identifiable information for such site activities as bulletin boards, newsletters, surveys, contests, sweepstakes, etc. You will not receive unsolicited emails from us or from third parties unless you specifically give us permission to do so via the opt-in function. You can tell us not to share this information at any time by e-mail us at info@hipecuador.com.

In addition to the uses described above, a user's personally identifying information may be used by HipEcuador's, its parent companies, subsidiaries, and affiliates for editorial or quality control purposes. HipEcuador.com may also disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to [
a] conform to applicable law or comply with legal process served on HipEcuador.com or the Site; [b] protect and defend the rights or property of HipEcuador.com, the Site or the users of HipEcuador.com, and [c] act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety or users of HipEcuador.com, the Site or the public.

If we desire to use your information for purposes not disclosed, we will announce such a plan and ask you to "opt in." If you wanted to share your personal information, you would have to respond. In the absence of such a response, your information would not be disclosed for the new purpose.

If you have any concerns about the above, feel free to e-mail us at info@hipecuador.com.

HipEcuador.com users should be aware that when they voluntarily disclose personal information (such as an e-mail address) within the body of a post on the bulletin boards, that information can be collected and used by others and may result in unsolicited messages from other posters or parties.

While your personally identifying information is protected as outlined above, we collect anonymous aggregated Site usage data on HipEcuador.com for statistical purposes, and we often provide it to third parties as a measure of the popularity of our Site.

Whatever the purpose may be, we will only collect information to the extent reasonably necessary to fulfill your requests and our legitimate business objectives.
