Thanks for using Getting Around Turkey. This policy explains the what, how, and why of the information we collect when you use Getting Around Turkey. It also explains the specific ways we use and disclose that information. We never sell lists or email addresses.

About the Information that we Collect

We collect personal information from you when you create or use an account on the Getting Around Turkey website.

If you choose to register an account or update an existing account or access certain functionality on this website, you may be required to submit Personal Information. “Personal Information” means information that we can use to identify or contact you, such as your name, address, telephone number or email address. You are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of the Personal Information that you submit. Inaccurate information will affect your experience when using the website tools and our ability to contact you as described in this Privacy Policy.

Access to some website features is limited to registered users who are logged into their accounts. Some features (such as the search and browse tools) do not retain your information, while others (such as travel reservations) store and use your information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Even if you do not register an account or provide any Personal Information, we collect Non-Personal Information about your use of the Getting Around Turkey website. “Non-Personal Information” means information that we cannot use to identify or contact you. We may also acquire Non-Personal Information about our users from external sources.

How we Use your Information

The information that we collect from you may be used in any of the following ways:

  • To personalize your experience: your information (in particular the preferences that you configure) enables our service to better respond to your preferred way of working.
  • To improve our website: we continually strive to improve our website and services, based on observation of your website usage and feedback we receive from you.
  • To improve our service: our dialog with you helps us to more effectively respond to your expectations and to support your needs.
  • To keep you informed: the email address that you provide during registration is used to periodically notify you about important events in the life cycle of your account and to update you about website content changes, subject to your notification preferences.

How we Protect your Information

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety and confidentiality of your personal information.

Our website is regularly scanned for malware, security weaknesses, and application vulnerabilities.

Your personal information is stored within a secure cloud-based infrastructure and is only accessible by a limited selection of approved personnel. Access to personal information is granted on a strict “need to know” basis and subject to stringent policies and procedures that are designed to preserve confidentiality.

To ensure the confidentiality of information that passes between you and us, all access to this website is via pages protected by Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).

About our Use of Cookies

We use analytics cookies to identify which pages are being visited. This helps us to understand our visitor traffic and to develop and improve our website in line with visitor expectations. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes.

We also use cookies to maintain session information that is essential to the operation of our service. When you log into your account on this site, cookies enable us to track that login and to maintain access to your account for the duration of your visit.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. However, please note that whilst this will not prevent you from browsing the public pages of this website, it will prevent you from creating an account or logging into your account, and thus will remove your ability to partake in the full range of services that we propose.

Disclosure of Information to Outside Parties

We will not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer your personally identifying information to any outside party without your explicit consent.

We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions and delivery services on our behalf. These functions include technical, administrative and legal activities that are essential to the operation of our business. These companies and individuals will have access to the personal information they need to perform these functions, but they may not use it for any other purposes and are required to process the data in accordance with the UK’s Data Protection legislation.

We will also release your information when we are required to do so in order to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others’ rights, property, or safety.

We may share aggregate analytics and statistical data (information that contains no personally identifying elements) with other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
