Privacy Policy

Here at TravelHell!, we strive for a simple privacy policy. Let's keep the legalese to a minimum, shall we?

In short:

  1. we collect the basic minimum of data for a standard website
  2. you don't have to sign up to read the site
  3. it takes only a little personal info to subscribe
  4. if you choose to subscribe, we won't inundate you with junk mail
  5. no one is perfect

In more detail:

We collect the bare minimum of data for a standard website

Our web servers keep logs that show, in an obscured sense, who requested what.

The "who" is an internet address (IP address) that, for the most part, may be tough to track back to an individual. So the web server logs don't really tell us that Bob from Ohio really, really digs paying for that damned snack box at cruising altitude.

The "what" is what URL (that is, page) someone saw. Well, we don't even know what they read on the page, we just know that someone asked to see it.

You don't have to subscribe to read the site

Most doors here are open. If you want to click all around the site and read our valiant attempts at humour, by all means have at it.

Really, you only have to subscribe if you want to leave comments on our posts or post messages in the forums.

it takes only a little personal info to subscribe

To subscribe, use that "create a new account" link on the right-hand menu. Our system asks for just a user name and an e-mail address.

The user name is attached to anything you write on the site. That way, someone can distinguish between the posts from That Jerk In Seat 3A and The Knob In 2B. You can be creative. Bloody hell, one of our admins signs his posts, The Fat Plat.

Use of your e-mail address is described in the next item.

If you choose to subscribe, we won't inundate you with junk mail

Our system uses the supplied e-mail address to send you a confirmation link when you sign up, and to let you reset your password should you ever forget it. If there's a problem with your account, we may also send you a note.

Really, we don't want to contact you. Nothing personal, it's just that we have other things to do.

No one is perfect

As with pretty much any site, there is a chance someone can violate our privacy policy for us. Should some wily hacker run off with our servers or manage to infiltrate our databases, then your e-mail address goes with it.

We do our best to protect our data, but there's no such thing as a 100% secure computer with 100% secure data. (You can play language lawyer if you'd like, but let's be frank...)
