TerraViva Journeys Privacy Policy

TerraViva Journeys, LLC (“TerraViva Journeys“) operates https://www.terravivajourneys.com/ and http://www.littlehavanaexperiences.com. It is TerraViva Journey’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information I may collect while operating my websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, TerraViva Journeys collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. TerraViva Journey’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how TerraViva Journey’s visitors use its websites. From time to time, TerraViva Journeys may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

TerraViva Journeys also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on https://terravivaJourneys.com blog articles. TerraViva Journeys only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to TerraViva Journeys’ websites choose to interact with TerraViva Journeys in ways that require TerraViva Journeys to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that TerraViva Journeys gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, I ask visitors who sign up at https://terravivajourneys.com/ to provide an email address should they want to sign up for my newsletter or contact me by email with a question or to arrange a custom or private experience.

Those who engage in transactions with TerraViva Journeys (e.g., booking an event) are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, TerraViva Journeys collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with TerraViva Journeys. TerraViva Journeys does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

TerraViva Journeys may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. TerraViva Journeys may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, TerraViva Journeys will NEVER disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

TerraViva Journeys discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on TerraViva Journey’s behalf or to provide services available at TerraViva Journey’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using TerraViva Journey’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

TerraViva Journeys will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, TerraViva Journeys discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when TerraViva Journeys believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of TerraViva Journeys, third parties or the public at large.

If you have signed up for the TerraViva Journeys newsletter and have supplied your email address, or if you are a previous client, TerraViva Journeys may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new services, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with TerraViva Journeys. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of my feedback mechanisms), I reserve the right to publish it in order to help me clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. TerraViva Journeys takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

I am committed to the security of personal data. I take appropriate security measures to limit abuse of and unauthorized access to personal data. This ensures that only the necessary persons have access to your data, that access to the data is protected, and that our security measures are regularly reviewed.

The security measures we use consist of, but are not limited to:

  • Vulnerability Detection
  • HTTP Strict Transport Security and related security headers
  • TLS / SSL
