THIRD PARTY ADVERTISING
The Company allows third parties to place advertisements on the Website. The Company is neither responsible nor accountable for the products, services, and/or messaging of the third party advertisers. Visitors consume the third party advertiser’s products, services, and/or messaging at their own risk, and agree not to hold the Company liable for any harm that befalls them wile consuming any third party’s products, services, and/or messaging.
We allow third parties to collect certain non-personally identifiable information from visitors to the Website. The third parties are permitted to use such non-personally identifiable information during a visitor’s visit to the Website in order to increase the likelihood that the advertisements that they place are about goods and services relevant to the visitor.
Real talk: We make a LOT of content available for free. It took us a lot(!) of time, effort, and money to produce that content. And it continues to cost us money to keep it available. The revenue that we generate from the advertisements that we place offsets only a fraction of all of the costs associated with drafting, posting, and hosting all of that free content.
Real talk: The Internet is dark and full of terrors. You’re on your own outside of our website.
In layperson’s terms, an affiliate link is a link to a third party’s website (either a provider of a product or service, or a platform on which multiple providers sell their products and/or services) that identifies the visitor as arriving to the website from a particular source (usually another website).
We embed affiliate links in our featured destination guides, blog posts, and email communication. If visitors click on an affiliate link and then purchase the third party supplier’s product or service, we will receive a small commission (paid by the third party supplier or platform). Visitors will not be charged an extra fee or inflated price because they made their purchase after clicking on an affiliate link.
Real talk: We make a LOT of content available for free. It took us a lot(!) of time, effort, and money to produce that content. And it continues to cost us money to keep it available. The revenue that we generate from the affiliate links that we embed offsets only a fraction of all of the costs associated with drafting, posting, and hosting all of that free content. So we ask that if you book a product or service (such as a hotel room) that we recommend, and don’t plan on using the Company’s services to do so, please consider clicking directly through our affiliate link when purchasing!
EMAILS AND NEWSLETTERS
Up Next Destinations occasionally sends out email newsletters. We send email newsletters to email addresses that we have on file. The email addresses that are in our file are in our file either because someone contacted us about our services, or because someone explicitly asked us to include them on future email newsletter distribution (via an enrollment option in our website’s footer). All email newsletters that we send out contain an unsubscribe option in the footer of the email. Click on that and our newsletter software will remove that email address from our distribution list for all future email newsletters.
Real talk: As an avid inbox zero-er, I agree that most of us get wayyy too many emails. So if you no longer want to receive our email newsletters, you’ll always have the opportunity to unsubscribe. That said, we will be sorry to no longer be able to share exciting updates, discounts, and insider travel tips with you via email.
We try hard to keep our website up-to-date. However, sometimes suppliers that we detail/discuss in our featured destination guides close, change their address, alter their opening hours or offering, and/or adjust their prices in between updates. The Company is not responsible for any such changes. That said, if a visitor notices any, we would be most grateful if they would Contact Us and let us know.
All opinions expressed on the Website are exclusively the opinions of the Company. We are infrequently provided with free or discounted goods and/or services from suppliers. However, the opinions expressed on the Website do not depend in any way on discounts or gifts from suppliers. Moreover, we do not accept payments, including free or discounted services, from suppliers in exchange for writing positively about them.
