Information Collection and Use
Sokol Tours is the sole owner of the information collected on www.sokoltours.com.
Sokol Tours collects information from users at several different points on the
In order to access all features of this web site, a user must first complete
the registration form. During registration a user is required to give basic
contact information (such as name and email address). We use this information
to contact the user about services on our site for which he/she has expressed
interest. It is optional for the user to provide demographic information (such
as income level and gender), but encouraged so that Sokol Tours can provide
a more personalized experience and greater value-added. Sokol Tours also requires
a user's passport information and other personal data to provide visa support,
accommodations bookings and other required instances.
Sokol Tours requests information from the user on our order form. A user must
provide contact information (such as name, email, and shipping address) and
financial information for clients choosing to pay by credit card (such as credit
card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes
and for delivery. In the event difficulties occur in processing an order, the
information is used to contact the user.
Personal information collected from the client is used only by Sokol Tours staff
and suppliers when required for provision of services. Only the required amount
of information is provided for each transaction. It is never sold or disseminated
to third parties who are not directly providing tourist services to Sokol Tours
Profiling and Cookies
of its users.
Third Party Advertising
Sokol Tours has no third party advertising on its site, and consequently your
personal information is not retrieved by third parties.
Like most standard Web site servers Sokol Tours uses log files. This includes
internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP),
referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to
analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement in the aggregate,
and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc.
are not linked to personally identifiable information. [IP addresses are tied
to personally identifiable information to enable our Web-based service.]
Communications from the Site
Special Offers and Updates
Sokol Tours sends all new members a welcome email to verify password and username.
Established members will occasionally receive information on products, services,
special deals, and a newsletter. Out of respect for the privacy of our users
we present the option to not receive these types of communications. Please see
the Choice and Opt-out sections.
If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter, we ask for contact information
such as name and email address. Out of respect for our users privacy we provide
a way to opt-out of these communications. Please see the Choice and Opt-out
On rare occasions it is necessary to send out a strictly service related announcement.
For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance Sokol
Tours might send users an email. These communications are not promotional in
nature and are generally sent only to active clients.
Sokol Tours communicates with users via email or phone on a regular basis to
provide requested services and in regards to issues relating to their account.
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose
personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief
that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding,
a court order or legal process served on our web site.
Aggregate Information (non-personally identifiable)
We do not share aggregated demographic information with our partners.
Third Party Advertisers
Sokol Tours does not have any third party advertising on its site.
These are the instances in which we will share users' personal information:
Third Party Intermediaries
We use an outside shipping company to ship orders, and a credit card processing
company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain,
share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
We partner with various third parties to provide specific services. When the
user signs up for these particular services, we share names, or other contact
information such as passport number that is necessary for the third party to
provide these services. These third parties agree to not use personally identifiable
information except for the purpose of providing these services.
In the event Sokol Tours goes through a business transition, such as a merger,
acquisition, or selling a portion of its assets, users' personal information
will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred. Users will be notified
via email and a prominent notice on our web site for 30 days prior to a change
of ownership or control of their personal information. If as a result of the
business transition, the users' personally identifiable information will be
used in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection they will
be given choice consistent with our notification of changes section.
Sokol Tours users are given the opportunity to "opt-out" of having
their information used for purposes not directly related to the site at the
point of information submission. For example, the order form has an "opt-out"
mechanism so users may choose to receive additional promotional materials (such
Users who no longer wish to receive the Sokol Tours newsletter and promotional
communications may opt-out of receiving these communications by replying with
"unsubscribe" in the subject line of the email or by sending email
to us at email@example.com. We also offer an opt-out mechanism on the member
From time to time our site requests information from users via surveys. Participation
in these surveys is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice
whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically
includes contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic
information (such as zip code). Survey information will be used for purposes
of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site. Users' personally
identifiable information is not shared with third parties unless we give prior
notice and choice. Though we may use an intermediary to conduct these surveys
or contests, they may not use users' personally identifiable information for
any secondary purposes.
If a user elects to use the Sokol Tours referral service to inform a friend
about the site, he/she will be asked for the friend's name and email address.
Sokol Tours will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting them
to visit the site. Sokol Tours stores this information for the sole purpose
of sending this one-time email and tracking the success of our referral program.
To remove his/her data from the database, the fried would simply reply to the
message with "unsubscribe" in the subject line.
This web site takes every precaution to protect users' information. When users
submit sensitive information via the web site, their information is protected
both online and off-line.
When the registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such
as credit card number and/or passport), that information is encrypted and is
protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL. While on
a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers
such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer will appear to indicate
that the transfer of information is secured.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also
do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our
users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted
in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific
job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are
granted access to personally identifiable information. All employees are kept
up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Every quarter, as well as
any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded
about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our
users' information is protected. Finally, the servers that store personally
identifiable information are in a secure environment, in a locked facility.
If users have any questions about the security of the Sokol Tours web site,
they should send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Correcting/Updating/Deleting/Deactivating Personal Information
If a user's personally identifiable information changes (such as zip code, phone,
email or postal address), or if a user no longer desires this service, Sokol
Tours provides a way to correct, update or delete/deactivate users' personally
identifiable information. This can usually be done at the member information
page or by emailing Customer Support at email@example.com
Notification of Changes

are always aware of what information is collected, how it is used, and under
what circumstances, if any, it is disclosed. Information is used in accordance
If, however, Sokol Tours will use users' personally identifiable information
in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection users will
be notified via email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not their information
is used in the new manner. However, if users have opted out of all communication
with the site, or deleted/deactivated their account, then they will not be contacted,
nor will their personal information be used in this new manner.
