Privacy Statement

The Florida Travel & Tourist Bureau has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy.

The following discloses the information-gathering and dissemination practices for our site.

Information Automatically Logged

We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our Web site.

Cookies

We may use cookies to store contact and personal preference information so you do not have to re-enter that information every time you visit.

Advertisers

We sometimes use outside ad companies to display banner ads on our site. These ads may contain cookies. While we may use cookies in other parts of our Web site, cookies received with banner ads are collected by our ad companies, and we do not have access to this information.

Some customer data is shared with the advertising companies, but this data is aggregated and not individually identified or associated with a specific person (i.e. "80% of our visitors have traveled to Florida in the last year").

Contact/Demographic info

We may ask our visitors for contact information (i.e. e-mail address), and demographic information (i.e. ZIP code, age, income level).

Contact information is used to:
 

  1. Notify winners of any giveaways we may offer
     
  2. Deliver our newsletter and travel specials
     
  3. Send promotional material or offers from some of our partners, advertisers or sponsors
     

Visitors may opt-out of receiving future mailings (see the choice/opt-out section below).

Demographic and profile data may be shared with partners, advertisers and sponsors on an aggregate basis. We may use this data to tailor our visitors' experience at our site, showing them content that we think they might be interested in, and displaying the content according to their preferences.

External Links

Our sites contain links to other sites. The Florida Travel & Tourist Bureau is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites.

Special Relationships

From time to time, we enter into agreements with co-branding partners, content providers, business partners, sponsors and advertisers.

These agreements may call for the sharing of aggregated user information and contact information with the partner.

The Florida Travel & Tourist Bureau encourages all its partners to adopt privacy policies, but we are not responsible for a partner's use of this information.

Public Forums

Our site may make chat rooms, forums, message boards, and/or news groups available to users. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information.

Security

Our site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control.

Children's Guidelines

You must be at least 18 years old to request our newsletter or enter any giveaways.

Therefore, our site does not collect information from children and does not offer parents access to this information as outlined in the Online Privacy Protection Act guidelines.

Choice/Opt-Out

To opt-out of receiving promotional/marketing information from us, send e-mail to The Florida Travel & Tourist Bureau.
