Privacy Policy
             (Last revised on 1 May, 2007)

GTI Tours is committed to bringing you information that's tailored to your individual needs and, at the same time, to protecting your privacy. The following is a summary of the various ways we treat the information you provide us while using GTI Tours.

GTI Tours does not collect personally identifying information except with your specific knowledge and consent. And we do not share such information with any outside party without your explicit consent.

Sometimes you will provide us with data that doesn't reveal your personal identity — what type of destination you're seeking information about, for example. We use this sort of information for editorial purposes, and occasionally for other internal purposes (maybe we'll show football travelers a certain ad, for example) but we don't connect it to any name, address or other identifying information. This way we can give you customized information without compromising your privacy.

In a few cases — if you e-mail a question or some feedback to us, for example — we may request your name, e-mail address or other information so that we can, for example, e-mail you with a personal reply. If you choose to supply this information we will use it only for the specific purpose for which you supply it — unless we tell you otherwise at the time of collection, in which case you'll have an option to forbid other uses by us.

We may offer to send you information or updates from GTI Tours via e-mail or otherwise; obviously, signing up will put you on a specific mailing list. We will not put you on any other mailing lists, from us or anyone else, without your permission.

Finally, while your individual information is protected as outlined above, we reserve the right to use aggregated, anonymous data about our users as a group. For instance, we might report to potential advertisers that a certain percentage of our users are interested in travel to Melbourne, based on information requests.

This Privacy Policy may be modified from time to time; notice of changes will appear on this page, so check back often. Any such changes will be prospective, never retroactive.

If you have concerns or questions about any aspect of this policy, please send us e-mail.
We welcome your feedback.
