Information From Other Sources
Automatically Collected Information
As is true of most other websites, TripRiff receives and stores certain information automatically. This may include your browser information (including browser type, browser version, host operating system, and browser language). Additionally, TripRiff collects and analyzes traffic on the Website by keeping track of the IP addresses of our visitors and by collecting log file information. Your IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to the computer that you are using by your Internet service provider (ISP) or by another organization. An IP address, by itself, cannot identify you personally. However, when combined with other information, your IP address can be used to identify the computer you are using. In addition, TripRiff may use your IP address to estimate your geographic location. We may combine this automatically collected information with other information we collect about you, including personal information, to improve the services we offer you, including customized recommendations and advertising, and to improve marketing.
TripRiff may collect other non-personally identifying information. For example, we may collect information as Users browse the Sites, such as web traffic, what pages are visited, from where Users come, and other demographic information, such as age, gender, and search habits. We may compile this non-personally identifying data to enable statistical analysis of our services that would be used internally or with external assistance to make improvements to our Website.

CALIFORNIA DO-NOT-TRACK PROCEDURE
At TripRiff, we take privacy very seriously.

We have made this choice in order to provide a more seamless and tailored experience for Users when using our Service and visiting our Website. We nevertheless remain committed to safeguarding your Personal Information and preserving the safety of our Service.
