Privacy Policy
We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting it.  That is why we have adopted this privacy policy, which lets you know how your personal information is processed and used.  CruiseRivers.com will never disclose or sell any of your personal information, including your name, address, credit card number, shopping, or transaction history to any third party, unless legally required to do so or at the request of the individual to whom the information belongs.  CruiseRivers.com is a strong advocate of permission marketing – this means you will only receive travel information that you have told us you want to receive.

Information Collected
There are two types of information we collect.  First, we collect data to count Web page accesses and gather some general statistical information, which may include IP numbers (data that allows us to identify the number of "unique visitors" to our site).  CruiseRivers.com does not gather any personal information through the use of these techniques.  Second, we receive information from our viewers sent by e-mail or through our "Select a Cruise" response forms.  This information is used only to help fulfill cruise booking requests – it is not shared with any third parties except those companies we need to contact in order to fulfill such requests, such as cruiselines.  We never provide information to companies or individuals that are not essential to carrying out a booking request.  In addition, e-mail or mailing addresses we receive are not placed on mailing lists unless the sender explicity makes such a request (for example, clicking the "Yes, please add me to your mailing list for updates on new specials" checkbox on the "Select a Cruise" form).  We will gladly honor any request to remove an address from our mailing list at any time.  The addresses in our mailing list are confidential and will never be sold or given away to third parties.
