What security precautions are used to prevent unauthorized access or updates to my information?

All information collected for our Travel Newsletter, promotional e-mails or listing information is assigned a unique number along with a user specified password. Only you and the RealAdventures staff have access to this information. We recommend using a 'complex' password that is difficult to guess. Complex password include a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and/ or punctuation (Examples: Apple.Sauce, Telephone.Antenna, USA34John). If the correct password is not entered within three attempts, the information will be locked until RealAdventures is contacted with identifying information.

Do not reveal your account number, listing number or password to anyone. This will ensure that others will not be able to access or update your information.

While most companies and individuals access the Internet for legitimate personal and business reasons, there are some who seek to gain access to or corrupt private information. They may attempt to do this by intercepting data transmissions or hacking at your password. We cannot prevent security breaches of this nature. But we will make every effort to ensure data privacy, security and integrity once we receive it.



What else should I know about my privacy?

Any personal information that you reveal while surfing the Internet (through on-line forms, message boards, chat rooms, e-mail messages, etc) can potentially be collected and used by others. As a result, you may receive unsolicited e-mail messages or phone calls.

Protection of personal or professional information, e-mail addresses and passwords is ultimately your responsibility.
