This privacy statement (“Privacy Statement”) explains how Directo Technologies, Inc. (“Directo Inc.” or “we”) collects and processes information from members and users of the website, software applications, and other online services we provide (collectively “Directo Inc.'s products”). Directo Inc.'s products include, but are not limited to, the Directo Inc. extension for web browsers (the “Extension”), the Directo Inc. mobile application (the “Mobile App”), and the website located at www.getdirecto.com (the “Website”).
To the extent that Directo Inc. has links to other websites (like travel websites), please note that we do not own, operate, or control them, and they have their own controlling privacy policies that you should review.
In order to provide our services, Directo Inc. collects information that you share directly with us when you use our website, extension, or Mobile App.
Directo Inc. also collects technical information about your device and use of Directo Inc. to make sure that our products are working correctly. The information we collect is geared to providing Directo Inc. users with a better way to book travels online and to help us develop, improve, and market our services.
Directo Inc. does not track your search engine history, emails, or your browsing on any site that is not a travel website (a site where you can book a travel related service). When you are one of our covered travel sites, to help you save money, Directo Inc. will collect information about that site that lets us know which alternative offer to find for you. We may also collect information about pricing and availability of properties, which we can share with the rest of the Directo Inc. community and partners.
On travel sites, Directo Inc. collects the name of the site, page views, and in some cases, service information that allows us to track price changes and update our listing catalog. We may also collect information regarding your purchases on a travel site while using Directo Inc. (for example, the transaction value, and the fact that a booking was completed) for purposes including internal analytics, commission collection. The information you share, and we collect, enables us to improve our products and gives us insights about deals, pricing, and availability of travel services, which we can share with the rest of the Directo Inc. community. We may also use this information to understand your booking preferences to provide you with a more tailored, relevant experience or show sponsored product offers that may interest you.
We may also use the information we collect in aggregate or otherwise anonymized form. This lets us look at interactions with our site and products generally and does not identify you or any specific person. We use this general data for research, development, marketing, analytics, and to enhance the shopping experience for the Directo community.
We collect information that we believe can help us save our users time and money. This does not include, and we do not collect, any information from your search engine history, emails, or from websites that are not travel booking sites.
We also do not collect bank or credit card information.
We know how important your personal data is to you, so we will never sell it without your express permission first. We'll only share your personal data with your consent or in ways you'd expect (as we explain here). That means we will share your data if needed to complete your purchase, with businesses who help us operate Directo Inc., or if we are legally required to do so.
We may share information with our service providers (businesses that work for and with us) for the purpose of running Directo Inc. and fulfilling our commitments to you. These include businesses that perform services on our behalf, including to help us maintain our products, to provide support for legal, banking, security protection, payment processing, our own marketing, and customer service. Please know that when we share information with our service providers, it's for the purposes outlined in this Privacy Statement and not for their independent use.
We may also share information in the following cases:
The security of your information is important to us. We are implementing best in class procedures to guarantee the safety of your data.
These measures include limiting access, using encryption, testing for vulnerabilities, advanced malware detection, employing pseudonymization and anonymization techniques, and more.
Though we hate to say it, despite our efforts, we can't guarantee that user information will not be accessed, viewed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed as a result of a breach of any of our safeguards. You provide us with information at your own risk.
Some cookies can be temporary (“session cookies” like those used for navigating your browser) and disappear once you close it. Others last longer (“persistent cookies,” like when you ask a site to remember your login) and are saved to your computer until you delete them.
Our uses of cookies and similar technologies fall into the following general categories:
Any personal information that we collect and store through use of these technologies for categories other than “Essential” are based on your consent, obtained through a conspicuous disclosure on our website. You can withdraw this consent in your account settings at any time. If you want to disable cookies entirely, your browser or mobile device might have an option to do that. For more information, including instructions on disabling cookies, please visit: http://www.allaboutcookies.org/
Your choices for managing your data
If you want to stop using Directo Inc., you can uninstall the extension from your browser and if you have any issues you can contact our support team for assistance by sending an email to email@example.com.
If you would like to delete your profile or personal information, you can always ask us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We will delete any personal information we have, although the following exceptions apply: (1) we may still store your personal information if we need it to meet our legal or compliance obligations and/or to defend against legal claims; and (2) we may also continue to store your personal data in an aggregated and anonymized format that doesn’t identify you and can’t be attributed to you, even after you’ve deleted your profile.
We created Directo Inc. for the exclusive use of adults (18 and older). We don't knowingly collect or solicit personal information from children. If you are a child under 18, please do not attempt to use or register for Directo Inc.'s products or send any personal information to us.
