Privacy and Cookies

Sapa Ethnic Travel is committed to user privacy in our products and services. This policy outlines our personal information handling practices. If you give us personal information, we will treat it according to this policy.

This policy covers Sapa Ethnic Travel’s corporate web site.

Sapa Ethnic Travel encourages you to read this privacy policy and those of all web sites you visit. Below is a summary of Sapa Ethnic Travel’s online privacy policy.

Types and uses of personal information.

Your personal information is used in the following ways:

Customer Feedback and Support.

Provides a mechanism for requesting information from Sapa Ethnic Travel. Also used to tell us how we can improve our products, services and site designs.

Email Correspondence.

Used to raise and respond to issues and inquiries of all types. Also used to distribute information about Sapa Ethnic Travel, our products, and services.

We will only use your personal information in the ways specified when it was collected. We will not subsequently change the way in which we use your personal information, unless you consent to the new usage.

Security measures.

We protect the personal information you share with us. For example, if you make an online purchase with us, we encrypt your credit card number. Access to your personal information is limited to people who need it to do their job.

Authorized third party agents may also need access to some of your personal information. For example, if we need to ship something to you, we must share your name and address with a shipping company. We only provide third party agents with the minimum amount of information needed to complete the requested service or transaction. We do not otherwise share your personal information with third parties, unless you have granted us permission to do so.

Data Retention.

Sapa Ethnic Travel will not retain your personal information longer than is necessary for the purposes for which it was collected.

Linked web sites.

We provide links to third party sites. Since we do not control these Web sites, we encourage you to review the privacy policies posted on these (and all) third party sites.

Children’s privacy.

We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13. If we learn that we have personal information on a child under the age of 13, we will delete that information from our systems. Sapa Ethnic Travel encourages parents to go online with their kids. Here are a few tips to help make a child’s online experience safer:

Teach kids never to give personal information, unless supervised by a parent or responsible adult. Includes name, address, phone, school, etc.

Know the sites your kids are visiting and which sites are appropriate.

Look for Web site privacy policies. Know how your child’s information is treated.
