PRIVACY

The Company takes privacy seriously. That said, and for the avoidance of doubt:

  • We do use cookies on the Website, as and for the reasons described below.

  • We do allow third party advertisers to collect certain non-personally identifiable information from visitors to the Website, as and for the reasons described below.


We do not collect any additional information, including any personally identifiable information, from our visitors, except for information shared directly and voluntarily by visitors (such as, and including but not limited to, information shared via email or the contact form).

The Company reserves the right to use information shared voluntarily by visitors for purposes related to providing goods or services materially similar to those advertised and described on the Website to the visitor, as well as to protect the interests and well-being of the Company and its employees, partners, and suppliers (including, but not limited to, reporting threatening communication and/or harassment).


COOKIES

The Website uses cookies. Cookies are small text files placed on a visitor’s computer, tablet, phone, or other device in order to optimize user experience while on our website. Cookies facilitate this by collecting and storing user preferences, as well as by providing non-personally identifiable data to applications such as Google Analytics (which in turn allow us to further optimize our site).

We draw attention to the fact that we use cookies by placing a banner on the bottom of the screen when visitors access our homepage. If visitors do not want us to collect cookies during their visit to our website, they may disable cookies in their browser.

Real talk: Want to learn more about cookies, including how to disable them? If so, consider visiting: https://www.aboutcookies.org/


COPYRIGHT

Text and images on the Website are the property of the Company. No text or images may be copied, reproduced, repurposed, or otherwise used without our express, written consent. We have secured permission to use any images that we did not create ourselves. Visitors may not use them without the express, written consent of their owner.

Real talk: Don’t take anything without asking us. If there’s something that you want to use, please ask us and secure our permission first.


RESERVE RIGHTS

The Company reserves the exclusive right to modify any aspect of our business, services, website, and/or website terms and conditions if/as/when we see fit, and to do so without providing advance notice to any other parties.


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.


EXTERNAL LINKS

The Website contains links to other websites. We provide these links for visitor’s further edification and/or convenience. We are neither responsible nor accountable for the content or terms and conditions (including but not limited to the privacy policy) of any other website, including of websites that we link to on our website. Some of the external links are affiliate links (see the next section below for more about affiliate links).

Real talk: The Internet is dark and full of terrors. You’re on your own outside of our website.


AFFILIATE LINKS

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.

The Website may include opportunities to view information and communicate with us through social media services such as LinkedIn®, Twitter®, Facebook®, Glassdoor®, and blogging. You should use common sense and good judgment in communicating with us through these services. We are not responsible for the terms of use and privacy policies that govern these third party sites.


OTHER NOTICES

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.
