Information we collect through our websiteIn General, we receive and store any information you enter on our Web site or give us in any other way. This includes information that can identify you ("personal information"), including your first and last name, telephone number, postal and e-mail addresses. Under no circumstances, do we store or use billing information (such as credit card number, security code, and expiration date). Billing data are entered through our website in encrypted form and are immediately transmitted, encrypted again, to our affiliated bank's systems. We also may request information about your traveler preferences, including meal requests, seat selection, frequent flyer/hotel/car rental program information, and ticketing options. You can choose not to provide information to us, but in general some information about you is required in order for you to register as a member, purchase products or services, ask us a question or initiate other transactions on our site.
Information from Other Sources. We also may periodically obtain information about you from our business partners and other independent third-party sources and add it to our account information. Examples of information we may receive include: updated delivery and address information, which we use to correct our records and to facilitate proper delivery of travel information and/or documents and email accuracy information (from error logs or return receipts) which we use for the same reason.
Automatic Information. We automatically collect some information about your computer when you visit danae.gr or danae.travel. For example, we will collect your IP address, Web browser software (such as Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer), and referring Web site. We also may collect information about your online activity, such as trips viewed and purchases made. Our goal in collecting this automatic information is to help customize your user experience.
Also, our website uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, from Google Analytics. Google Analytics is a web analytics tool that helps website owners understand how visitors engage with their website. Google Analytics customers can view a variety of reports about how visitors interact with their website so that they can improve it.
Like many services, Google Analytics uses first-party cookies to track visitor interactions, as in our case, where they are used to collect information about how visitors use our site and to compile statistical reports on website activity. In addition to the standard Google Analytics data we also use a subset of this data, called Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting, to help us target our products and information to the users most likely to use our site.
We will not facilitate the merging of personally-identifiable information with non-personally identifiable information previously collected unless we have robust notice of, and the user's prior affirmative (i.e., opt-in) consent to, that merger.
Opt Out of Web Analytics
Google Analytics collects information anonymously. It reports website trends without identifying individual visitors. You can opt out of Google Analytics without affecting how you visit our site - for more information on opting out of being tracked by Google Analytics you can use the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on that is available for many current browsers.
