Privacy Policy

Holiday Junction has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses the information gathering and dissemination practices.

Information Automatically Logged

We use your IP address to gather broad demographic information as a basis for developing strategies for improving readership and thus better serve our primary clients (vacation property advertisers on our web site).

Personal Information

Readers

Holiday Junction keeps contact information of persons making online reservations, of persons subscribing to the reciprocal link service, and of users/participants in blogging and related activities. These persons may be contacted infrequently with respect to website updates. They may also be contacted should a question arise over their account. Holiday Junction does not request any other personal information from the readership or collect any information that personally identifies or allows a reader to be personally contacted. NO personal information is shared with any third parties.

Advertisers

Holiday Junction keeps contact information of persons or organizations advertising directly on the service. Certain contact information is displayed on advertisements, at the request of the advertiser, to enable readers to contact the property owner/manager/reservation office. Billing address information, when different from the displayed information, is kept confidential.

Photographers

Photographs displayed on this web site are under copyright of the photographer named in the © byline. Holiday Junction has the right to use these photographs under a variety of arrangements including purchase from photography microstock agencies, volunteer submissions through our partner site TravelScenics.com, and special arrangement with several photographers known personally by the management. Links to photographer websites, when available, are included with the byline information. In some cases, where a photographer’s web site is not known or not requested, a link to the stock agency from where the photograph was purchased is included. Holiday Junction keeps personal contact information for a number of photographers having images displayed on this website. This information is kept confidential.

Cookies

Holiday Junction may use cookies to ensure a consistent experience to visitors when viewing website pages.

Holiday Junction also uses several outside ad companies to display banner ads on our site where these ads may contain cookies which are collected by the advertising company. The use of advertising cookies sent by third party servers is common in the Internet industry. Holiday Junction does not have access to this information.

This site contains links to other internet sites. Holiday Junction is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of web sites outside of the HolidayJunction.com domain.

Online Hotel Reservation Service

The Online Reservation Service integrated into the Holiday Junction Accommodation Directory is provided through affiliation with Interactive Hotel Solutions (IHS) which acts as a gateway to the Pegasus Hotel Network. Online bookings are made directly through the Interactive Hotel Solutions website. Holiday Junction is not responsible for, nor does it guarantee, IHS Hotel Reservation Services.

Google AdSense

Google AdSense banners and link units are revenue generating advertising which may be found displayed on a variety of pages within Holiday Junction. These appear through an affiliation agreement with Google.com. The privacy policy of Google.com can be viewed at http://www.google.ca/privacy.html

Flickr

Flickr badges and Flickriver banners appear throughout the website. These are not income-generating banners. Rob Huntley, owner of Holiday Junction, is a part-time photographer and participant at Flickr.com. Rob is the administrator of Travel Pics groups for Canadian Provinces and Territories where Flickr members share the viewing of their travel images through the pool. The objective of these groups is to increase exposure to these photographers and their work. Thus, Holiday Junction displays the Flickr badges and banners for the mutual benefit of providing colour to Holiday Junction and providing exposure to the photographers.

These Flickr Travel Pics Groups include:

Other Network Banner Ads

Pay-per-click, and commission based advertising with banners or text links is utilized at Holiday Junction from a variety of sources. These include but are not limited to:

From time to time new advertisers are considered and the above list may be amended accordingly. Please revisit this page periodically if this is a matter of concern to you.

Other Private Banner Ads

Holiday Junction sells banner ad space to individual (non-network) advertisers. Consumer information is not collected by Holiday Junction through these banner ads. The majority of these are simple links with no data collection capability. However, in isolated cases, script-based banners may be collecting data. The use of advertising cookies sent by third party servers is common in the Internet industry. Please consult their website or contact them directly if there are privacy concerns.
