Privacy Policy

(Last Revised 6/4/2014)

We at iZento.com (“the Site”) know that the privacy of your personal information is important to you, and we appreciate your trust that our policy will respect your privacy and any personal information that you choose to provide to us. This notice describes our privacy policy; please read it carefully, as your use of any part of the Site will constitute your agreement to this Privacy Policy. If you cannot agree with the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy, please do not use the Site. This Privacy Policy does not apply to information collected elsewhere, including, without limitation, offline or on sites linked to through the Site.

In addition to reviewing this Privacy Policy, please read the appriproate User Agreement. Your use of the Site constitutes agreement to the User Agreement as well.

This Privacy Policy may be modified from time to time; the date of the most recent revisions will appear on this page. Continued use of the Site by you will constitute your acceptance of any changes or revisions to the Privacy Policy.

What Personal Information Does iZento.com Collect?

For all users we collect standard analytical information such as IP address, browser type, domain name, access times, duration of visit, referring URL, platform, new and repeat information, time stamp and exit page information.

Personal information is not required to use the Site; if you register with iZento, we ask for basic information including your email address and a password you create, and allow you to provide us with other information including your or your client's travel information and preferences.

Should you choose to share and/or communicate itineraries created on the site with other users, you may, at your sole discretion, provide them personal information. If you are or choose to work with a Travel Professional through the Site, the Travel Professional may wish to collect personal information such as your name, physical address, telephone numbers, and other personally identifiable information that you voluntarily provide to assist the Travel Professional in completing an itinerary. Personal Information you provide to a Travel Professional in the itinerary-planning process will be stored by iZento, but only be accessible by the host Travel Agency or Agencies associated with the Travel Professional with whom you shared it through a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connection. iZento will not publish or otherwise share this personal information; sharing of your itineraries or personal information by you or your Travel Professional will be the sole responsibility of the person or entity that shared the information, and you agree that iZento will not be liable for any privacy violations that result.

There is no provision on the site for collecting sensitive personal information such as date of birth, social security number, or passport number. When needed, credit card information is collected temporarily and forwarded to our payment processor, then immediately purged from our system. Should you choose to enter any sensitive personal information in a free-text area (e.g., a Notes field), you do so at your own risk, as this information is subject to dissemination when you or others share your itinerary. Should you elect to share an itinerary containing sensitive personal information, you agree to accept responsibility for sharing or removal of this information, and hold iZento harmless if your privacy is violated as a result of your entering and sharing this information.

What About Cookies?

A cookie is a unique identifier sent to your computer by a Web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. A cookie lets a computer server identify your computer, and allows many sites to greet you upon every return with a personalized message even before you actively login. We use cookies to personalize your user experience and shorten the time required to create an itinerary. Our cookies do not include any sensitive information, but they do help us track which of our Web pages are visited and what services are most often used.

The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-on's settings or visiting the Website of its manufacturer. However, because cookies enhance your experience with the Site, we recommend that you leave them turned on.

Does iZento.com Share the Information It Receives?

The information we gather is used solely to create and maintain your or your client's travel itineraries and profile and, at your discretion, to send you email or other messages. We also use the information that we gather to ensure the content on the Site—as well as the content of any other communication you have agreed to receive from us-- more closely matches your interests.

When you use the Site, the personal information you provide can be shared with the third parties you designate for access to such information, including your friends, relatives, business associates, and Travel Professionals. Depending upon the type of access you grant to such third parties, they may also be permitted to edit the information you have provided and to designate others to access and edit such information. You acknowledge that iZento has no control of or liability for privacy violations caused by information or itineraries that are forwarded, printed, posted, or otherwise shared by those to whom you granted such access. Additionally, when you send email or other communications to iZento, we may retain those communications in order to process your inquiries, respond to your requests and improve our service.

iZento has no interest in and does not market to private individuals. Client information supplied by Travel Professionals is not shared with 3rd parties for any reason.

Client information collected by the ClientBase-iZento Connector API program is limited to client first and last names. This information is deleted from our data base when the trip journal is automatically deleted 30 days after travel ends.

From time to time, we also may share general statistical information about our Site and visitors such as the number of visitors, aggregate and non-personally identifiable demographic data, etc., with our advertisers and partners. However, we will not reveal your or your client's name, address or any other individual data.

We share customer information only as described below and with entities that either are subject to this Privacy Notice or follow practices at least as protective as those described in this Privacy Notice.

  • Third-Party Service Providers: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling/delivering orders, processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.

This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. However this does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Notice.
  • With Your Consent: Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.

How Secure Is Information About Me?

We work to protect the security of your information by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software for password transmission, and to protect all information on Travel -Professional pages. Travel-Professional pages are defined as pages accessible only to Travel Professionals with a current Site subscription, and that contain information and history on the Travel Professional’s specific customers.

Though we may collect credit card information temporarily for real-time forwarding to payment processors, no credit card information is stored on the iZento site. All transactions are processed on the sites of the appropriate third-party provider during order processing. See Third Party Service Providers above.

It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.

We maintain data handling and storage practices and procedures that are designed to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of user information. Current Internet security methods and technologies are used to prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and ensure correct use of information.
