If you join the VietTravelBlog.info, we will collect your email address, which will be used to send email newsletters or other member communications. Business member information includes name, address and contact information, and may include credit card information for payment purposes only.
What do you use the data for?
All information collected is for statistical purposes. VietTravelBlog.info uses software programs to create summary statistics for such purposes as assessing the number of visitors to the different sections of our site, what information is of most and least interest, determining technical design specifications, and identifying system performance or problem areas.

These statistics become aggregate, anonymous information (e.g. “25% of our site visitors are interested in culinary travel”) which VietTravelBlog.info will provide to partners, advertisers, sponsors and third parties. Such aggregate data cannot be linked to any one person. If you purchase any books or other merchandise from a VietTravelBlog MARKET vendor, the vendor may disclose certain information to VietTravelBlog.info for commission tracking and statistical purposes. The vendor may also use the data for its own tracking and statistical purposes. For more information on vendors’ privacy policies, please contact them directly.

If you identify yourself by sending us an e-mail containing personal information, the information collected will be solely used to respond to your message. If you provide any information in connection with a contest, survey or promotion, that information will be used for general statistical purposes and/or to contact you if you are a contest winner. To the extent that VietTravelBlog.info has access to your personal information, it will disclose it when required by law enforcement or other appropriate governmental authorities, or if the personal information is pertinent in a legal proceeding or court action.
