While visiting the Website we may ask you to register and/or provide information that personally identifies you ("Personal Information") for purposes of interacting with the Website. Such Personal Information may include, but is not limited to, your name, phone number, street address, and e-mail address. On any page that collects Personal Information, we will specifically describe what information is required in order to provide you with the product or service, enter you in the promotion you have requested, or respond to your inquiry or comment. Information collected online is often defined as being either anonymous or personally identifiable:
As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users' movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We may link this automatically-collected data to Personally Identifiable Information.
See "Third Party Advertisers."
We may also offer other services as a part of our Website (e.g., contests, sweepstakes and other promotions with unaffiliated third parties). If you choose to use these optional services or opportunities, we may provide some of your Personal Information to these parties. We will not do so without telling you in advance, and you can avoid having us make such disclosures by choosing not to use these services or features of the Website.
Compulsive Traveler is the sole owner of the information collected on www.turnhere.com. Compulsive Traveler may collect Personal Information from our users at several different points on our Web site.
If you choose to use our service to tell a friend about a film you saw on our Website, we will ask you for your friend's name and email address. We will automatically send your friend an email.
Your friend may contact us at to request that we remove this information from our database.
We will occasionally send you information on services, special deals, products and/or promotions.
Out of respect for your privacy, we present the option not to receive these types of communications. Please see the "Choice/Opt-out."
We will send you strictly service-related announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email. Generally, you may not opt-out of these communications, which are not promotional in nature. If you do not wish to receive them, you have the option to deactivate your account.
Based upon the Personal Information you provide us, we may send you a welcoming email to verify your username and password. We will also communicate with you in response to your inquiries, to provide the services you request, and to manage your account. We will communicate with you by email or telephone, if you have provided such information.
We store information that we collect through cookies, log files, or clear gifs to create a "profile" of your preferences. We may tie your Personal Information to information in the profile, in order to provide tailored promotions and marketing offers and to improve the content of the site for you.
If you use a bulletin board or blog or rate a film on this site, you should be aware that any information you submit there can be read, collected, or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the personal information you choose to submit in these forums.
What are Cookies? A cookie is a small data text file that a web site sends to your browser, which is stored on your system. The Website can only access the information from a cookie sent by the Website. We cannot access cookies sent by other web sites or the information contained therein. Additionally, we cannot learn your e-mail address or any other information about you through the use of a cookie. The only way we would learn such information is if you specifically and voluntarily submit that information to us, for example, through a registration system, or by entering a sweepstakes or promotion.
May I decline to accept a cookie? You may decline to accept cookies sent by the Website by selecting an option on your browser to reject cookies. However, if at some point we require registration to use our services, you will be required to log in each time you access the Website. Cookies enable our server to know that you are a registered user, and will eliminate the need for you to log in each time you access our Website.
We may also employ a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We may tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers' Personal Information.
We may use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. If you would like to opt-out of these emails, please see "Choice/Opt-out."
Third party sites and co-branded sites linked to and from the Website are not necessarily under our control. We shall have no responsibilities or liabilities whatsoever for the content or privacy practices of any such linked site or any link or linking program at any time.

If you decide to access any of the third party sites linked to the Website, you do so entirely at your own risk. Therefore, we encourage you to ask questions and review those parties' privacy policies before you disclose your Personal Information to others.
We provide you the opportunity to 'opt-out' of having your Personally Identifiable Information used for certain purposes, when we ask for this information. For example, if you register but do not wish to receive any additional marketing material from us, you can indicate your preference on your account.
If you no longer wish to receive certain communications, you may opt-out of receiving them by logging into your account and changing your preferences.
If your Personally Identifiable Information changes, or if you no longer desire our service, you may correct, update, delete or deactivate it by making the change on our member information page.
In the event Compulsive Traveler goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets as well as in the event of a bankruptcy, assignment for benefit of creditors or receivership, your Personally Identifiable Information may be disclosed and will likely be among the assets transferred. You will be notified via prominent notice on our web site for 30 days of any such change in ownership or control of your personal information.
We reserve the right to disclose your Personally Identifiable Information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Website.
To help service your requests, we may provide certain Personal Information to third parties who may use this information for their own purposes, including sending advertising to you.
