General
TravelWellTripPlanning.com is a travel website and blog owned and operated by Maureen Zeljak.

Changes to the Privacy Policy

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. We may revise and update this Privacy Policy if our practices change, as technology changes, or as we add new services or change existing ones. If we make any material changes to our Privacy Policy or how we handle your personal information, or we are going to use any personal information in a manner that is materially different from that stated in our Privacy Policy at the time we collected such information, we will give you a reasonable opportunity to consent to the change. If you do not consent, your personal information will be used as agreed to under the terms of the privacy policy in effect at the time we obtained that information. By using our Site or services after the Effective Date, you are deemed to consent to our then-current privacy policy. We will use information previously obtained in accordance with the Privacy Policy in effect when the information was obtained from you.

Accuracy of Information
While we shall endeavor to ensure that all information on the Site is accurate, we cannot vouch that all information will be accurate and up-to-date at all times. The Site contains a large amount of data, and errors are likely to occur in tracking changes such as but not limited to changes in dates and times of events, restaurant information, prices, exchange rates, accommodation, or other travel information.

Parts of this Site may contain materials submitted to TravelWellTripPlanning.com by Third Parties. It is the responsibility of these Third Parties to ensure that the materials submitted for inclusion on this Site comply with national and relevant foreign laws.

We cannot guarantee the accuracy or reliability of this material and hereby disclaim any responsibility for error, omission or inaccuracy in the material or for any misinterpretation, loss, disappointment, negligence or damage caused by reliance on any material contained within the Site.

Should you find any inaccurate information or broken links on the Site, please inform us and we shall correct it as soon as it is practicable to do so.

Non-Guarantee of Results
You agree that we have not made any guarantees about the results of taking any action, whether recommended on this Website or not. The site provides educational and informational resources that are intended to help users of this Website with travel planning. You nevertheless recognize that your ultimate success or failure will be the result of your own efforts, your particular situation, and innumerable other circumstances beyond the control and/or knowledge of the Company.

(Because some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of certain categories of damages, the above limitation may not apply to you. In such states, our liability and the liability of our parent companies or affiliates is limited to the fullest extent permitted by such state law.) You specifically acknowledge and agree that we are not liable for any defamatory, offensive or illegal conduct of any user.  If you are dissatisfied with the site, any materials, products or services on the site, or with any of the site’s terms and conditions, your sole and exclusive remedy is to discontinue using the site and the products, services, and/or materials.
