Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal data and how we will treat it.
2. INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE
2.1 We may collect information from you at several stages during your use of the TroopTravel Services. We may collect and process the following information about you:
Where you are accessing the TroopTravel Services via a computer, we may collect information about that computer, including where available your IP address, operating system, browser type, referring URLs, page views and access times (“IP Details”). We use such information for system administration, to analyse trends, track users’ movements and to report aggregate information to our advertisers and partners. This is statistical data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.
Cookies and Advertisements
For the same reason, we may obtain information about your general internet usage by using a “cookie” file which is stored on the hard drive of your computer. A cookie consists of information sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The information is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.
We may use both “session” cookies and “persistent” cookies on our websites. We will use the session cookies to keep track of you whilst you navigate the websites. We will use the persistent cookies to enable our websites to recognise you when you visit.
Session cookies will be deleted from your computer when you close your browser. Persistent cookies will remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach a specified expiry date.
Most browsers allow you to reject all cookies, whilst some browsers allow you to reject just third party cookies. For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector. Blocking all cookies will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites, including our websites.

Any information that you provide by filling in forms on or through our websites or any other of the TroopTravel Services. This includes information provided by you if subscribing to our newsletter, posting material, searching for or saving travel options or requesting further services. We may also ask you for information when you enter a competition or promotion sponsored by us and when you report a problem with our website or other TroopTravel Services. If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence. Where you contact us through the ‘Contact Us’ section of our websites, your query will be routed to our customer service team through a third party service desk. Information you provide to us when you complete surveys that we use for research purposes. Information that you provide to us as a result of your connecting to our websites or other TroopTravel Services from a third party application, social networking or other site.
