We may also supplement this Policy with other privacy notices in the FareDropped Services. This Policy applies only to information collected by us through the FareDropped Services and does not apply to services that link to other privacy policies, including any third-party websites or services you connect to from our FareDropped Services, such as social-networking platforms or connected through third-party applications. FareDropped is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of such third parties. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of those third parties.
We collect and process personal information about you with your consent and/or as necessary to provide the products you use, operate our business, meet our contractual and legal obligations, protect the security of our systems and our customers, or fulfill other legitimate interests.
Personal Data Collected
As used in this Policy, “Personal Data” means information relating to you as an identified or identifiable individual. You provide personal data directly into the FareDropped Services. For example, as part of activating a free account with FareDropped, we collect your name, email address and home airport or state/country/region. If you upgrade your account, we collect additional information, including but not limited to a password. When you share your flight details with our service, we collect additional information, including but not limited to your name, dates of travel, airline, class of service, reservation and/or booking and/or confirmation code details, price paid for your ticket, frequent flyer program number, phone number, date of birth, address, seat preferences, etc. If you create the account using a social networking or third-party platform connection option offered by FareDropped (a “social sign-in” like Google or Facebook), we will collect your associated email address and related profile information from the social sign-in provider. You may also identify your company or employer, as well as provide a photo of yourself. You may also provide us with additional email addresses for purposes of collecting itinerary information and to ensure that you retain access to your account even if you no longer have access to your primary email address.
To take full advantage of features and functionality of the FareDropped Services, you may also provide us with additional information for your profile, such as date of birth, or your travel preferences, like seat and meal preference. And you may input emergency contact details and government-issued identification numbers needed for travel, such as your passport or driver license number. This information helps us monitor your itinerary and travel information for changes in price and to provide other services we may choose to offer to you. If you wish to receive alerts via text messages, you must provide your mobile telephone number. If you purchase additional FareDropped Services, such as upgrading your account to a paid plan, we will collect certain billing and payment information. We process any payments using third parties, and we would retain only the last four digits of your credit card number and expiration date.
We may also collect Personal Data from other sources and combine that with Personal Data we collect from you through the FareDropped Services, as described below.
Third-Party Connected Services
The FareDropped Services also enable you to connect your TripIt Services account with third-party applications and service providers. You can find information about many of these applications within the “Supported Apps” section of the Site, and third-party applications that connect to the FareDropped Services will usually indicate that they connect to the TripIt Services. These connected third-party applications may enable Personal Data about you to be transferred into the FareDropped Services. For example, if you book airline travel using a connect third-party so you can use the FareDropped Services through voice commands, either using the voice-recognition services enabled on your mobile device or through third-party devices that are enabled with voice-command “skills,” Personal Data would be processed by these third-party devices and the terms and conditions you have agreed to with such third parties, including third-party privacy notices, and FareDropped is not responsible for the quality or accuracy of third-party data available to the FareDropped Services from third parties or how such third parties may use Personal Data.

If you connect your email account, the FareDropped Services will automatically access and analyze the contents of emails in your email accounts on an ongoing basis for the purpose of identifying travel and travel-reward related emails that may contain recent travel bookings, boarding passes, or reward-program statements. Once identified, travel itinerary and reward-program information is then extracted from your emails into your FareDropped Services account so that you may access this information in the FareDropped Services. Notwithstanding anything else in this Policy, FareDropped only uses such information to provide or improve user-facing features and will not use or transfer such information (even if aggregated or anonymized) for serving ads, including retargeting, personalized, or interest-based advertising. FareDropped’s access to the email account is authorized through the email provider’s access mechanism. If you choose to have the FareDropped Services track your travel-reward points, the FareDropped Services will store account details for each of your travel-rewards accounts, including your sign-in username and password for tracked accounts. This information will be used to enable the FareDropped Services, directly or indirectly through third-party service providers, to automatically access your applicable reward accounts any analyze and extract information from such accounts for use in the FareDropped Services. You will be asked in each case whether you want to connect a third-party email or reward account.
