We also collect information about your travel experiences, places you visit to store your travel journals. We may also request information about your travel plans, style, and preferences, including meal requests, seat selection, frequent flyer/hotel/car rental program information, and flight class, luggage, and ticketing options.

MobilyTrip collects information about your travels through the travel journal feature. MobilyTrip provides you a way to set privacy settings to your journal, and to the photos included in your journal, both from the mobile applications and on the Website. It is your responsibility to manage the privacy settings, to grant access to your contacts and to not set content as public if you do not want MobilyTrip to use it publicly. You grant MobilyTrip and its affiliates a nonexclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, transferable, irrevocable and fully sublicensable right to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, translate, distribute, publish, create derivative works from and publicly display the content (included, but not limited to : texts, photos, geolocation, sound, video) set as “public” in your journals throughout the world in any media, now known or hereafter devised; those rights remain valid as long as the Content is public, and you may change this setting at any moment.

Cookies and other web technologies

Cookies are small data text files and can be stored on your computer’s hard drive (if your Web browser permits). MobilyTrip use cookies for the following general purposes:

  • To help us recognize your browser as a previous visitor and save and remember any preferences that may have been set while your browser was visiting our site. For example, if you register on our site, we may use cookies to remember your registration information, so you do not need to log into our site each time you visit. We also may record your password in a cookie, if you checked the box entitled "Keep me signed in on this computer unless I sign out.” Please note that member IDs, passwords, and any other account-related data included in such cookies are encrypted for security purposes.
  • To help measure and research the effectiveness of website features and offerings, advertisements, and e-mail communications (by determining which e-mails you open and act upon).

Please note that if you refuse to accept cookies, you may not be able to access many of the travel tools offered on our sites.

Our sites also may use Web beacons (also known as clear gifs, pixel tags or Web bugs), which are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, that are placed in the code of a Web page. We use Web beacons to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our sites to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our site from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party Web site, and to improve site performance.
