What Personal Information Do We Collect When You Visit Our Website?

The term "personal information" as used in this Privacy Policy refers to: (1) information that identifies you directly such as your name, street or e-mail address, driver’s license and passport number and payment card information; and (2) information that may be identified with you indirectly, such as your device IP address, device ID and data from cookie and similar internet technologies.

When ordering our services or registering on our site, you will be asked to create a user account and to enter the personal information that we need to process your transaction or respond to your request. This information may include, depending on the specific task, your name, date of birth, email address, mailing address, phone number, credit card and other payment information (e.g., PayPal), company name, shipping information (including pickup and drop off destinations), location (to locate bicycle shops near you) and other details to help us handle your order or your BikeFlights.com experience.

We offer the opportunity to provide additional information when you set up a BikeFlights.com user account or in connection with Live Chat discussions with our representatives. The information you disclose to us in these circumstances is completely voluntary but helps us improve your BikeFlights.com experience. Any of the above information may be collected and stored to coordinate or improve your BikeFlights.com experience and/or perform the services that you’ve requested under your agreement with us.

How Do We Protect Your Information?

We use commercially reasonable security technology to meet the standards of this Privacy Policy. Although we make reasonable efforts to protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use or alteration, we cannot and do not guarantee the security of your information, and there is always a risk inherent in the electronic communication of information (including without limitation from unauthorized entry or use, telecommunication issues, hardware or software failure and other factors). All usernames, tracking numbers, shipment information and user account information you supply is encrypted via Transport Layer Security (TLS) technology. We do not retain credit card information on our systems. For more information, see the section entitled “How Long Do We Keep Personal Information?”

You are responsible for choosing a secure password when we ask you to set up a password to access parts of our site. You should keep this password confidential, and you should choose a password that you do not use on any other site. You should not share your password with anyone else, including anyone who claims to work for us. You should change your password from time to time to help ensure that your account remains safe.

How Long Do We Keep Personal Information?

For your convenience we may retain payment information received from our payment processing partners (for example, PayPal’s proprietary “payment tokens,” which do not provide your actual card number) for up to 60 days in order to expedite future orders and to automate the billing process. Your credit card information is not routinely stored on our systems and is instead immediately forwarded to our payment processing partners. Any payment information received from our payment processing partners is encrypted and unreadable by other customers and our staff. We retain order information indefinitely to further our legitimate interests in evaluating trends in marketing, repeat orders, customer needs and wants and other business markers.

We retain your shipment information for 90 days. Your shipment information includes your travel itinerary and passport information for international travel. For information about how long our shipping partner, Federal Express, retains your information, please visit the UPS Privacy Policy at https://www.ups.com/us/en/help-center/legal-terms-conditions/privacy-notice.page and the Federal Express privacy policy at https://www.fedex.com/en-us/trust-center/privacy.html.

See the section “How to Contact Us.”
