What information we collect from you

In general

We receive and store all the information that you enter on our website or that you provide us with in another way. This includes information that can identify you (“personal information”), including your first and last name, telephone number, postal and email address, username and password. We may also request information about your plans, styles and preferences. You can choose not to provide us with information, but, in general, you need to provide us with some information so that you can receive relevant offers from The Shopping Map and its associates, and to enjoy other benefits of being a registered member. For example, only registered members can post visit reviews, participate in discussion forums, send themselves or other people The Shopping Map content by email, access exclusive member newsletters, have a free subscription to our digital magazine and travel planning content, and participate in surveys, contests or raffles. In addition, you must provide us with information to ask questions on our site.


Information from other sources

We may periodically obtain personal and non-personal information about you from affiliated entities, business partners and other independent third-party sources, and add it to the one we already have about you. For example, if you visit The Shopping Map by “clicking” on a link from a site operated by one of our business partners, and if you are registered with such a business partner, the information about you that you provided to that partner, such as Contact and demographic information, can be shared with us. In the same way, and as an example, if you access the services of third parties, such as social media services through our website or before entering our website, we can collect information such as your username, password and other information that you provide us through those services. We will work with our existing and potential future partners to improve and customize the use of our website in accordance with the practices described in this section and in this Policy.

We partnered with Facebook to provide personalized content in The Shopping Map for Facebook members. If you are registered on Facebook and The Shopping Map, The Shopping Map will be customized for you when you visit the website, even if it is the first time you use The Shopping Map website. For example, we will show you the opinions your Facebook friends posted on The Shopping Map and the places they visited. In order to offer you this personalized experience, Facebook provides us with the information that you decided to make available according to the privacy settings of your Facebook account. That information can include your name, profile picture, sex, friend lists and any other information you have decided to make available.


Automatic information

When you visit The Shopping Map, we automatically collect some information from your computer or Device. For example, we will collect data about the session, including your IP address, web browser software, and referral website. We may also collect information about your online activity, such as the content you view, the pages you visit, and the searches or reservations you enable or make. One of our goals by which we collect this automatic information is to help us understand the interests and preferences of our users and personalize their user experience.


Location information and other information about the Devices

When using an App on a Device, we will collect and use information about you, generally, in a similar manner and with similar objectives as when using The Shopping Map website. In addition, we may collect information about your location if you have set your Device’s privacy settings to send that information to the Application or upload photos tagged with location information. We may use the location information collected from your Device or the photos to improve the use of the Application by providing relevant content and contextual advertisements. For example, we can use your location to show you opinions about stores or galleries that are near you while you are traveling. You can change the privacy settings of your Device at any time in order to disable the function to share information about the location with the Application and / or the function to tag your photos with information about the location. Please note that disabling the option to share the location may affect some functions of our Application. If you have any questions about the privacy settings of your Device, we suggest that you contact the manufacturer of your Device or your mobile service provider to assist you.

Response to Do Not Track signals

Your web browser can transmit a “Do Not Track” (DNT) signal to The Shopping Map and other websites.
