How we use your information
Email Communications: We want to make it easy for you to take advantage of travel-related opportunities on our website.

Cookies and other Web technologies
We automatically collect some information about you and your computer when you visit Tingotel.com. For example, we will collect your IP address, Web browser software (such as Firefox, Internet Explorer or Safari), your nationality and referring website. We also may collect information about your online activity, such as trips viewed and purchases made. One of our goals in collecting this automatic information is to help customise your user experience.
How we protect your information
We want you to feel confident about using Tingotel.com to make hotel bookings, and we are committed to protecting the information we collect. While no website can guarantee security, we have implemented appropriate administrative, technical, and physical security procedures to help protect the personal information you provide to us. For example, only authorized employees are permitted to access personal information, and they only may do so for permitted business functions. In addition, we use encryption when transmitting personal information that is sensitive to you (e.g., credit card details) between your system and payment gateway providers, and we employ firewalls and intrusion detection systems to help prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to your information.
External links and social plug-ins
This may also be the case when any part of Tingotel.com website uses social plug-ins from other sites such as Facebook. Plug-ins such as Facebook's "Like" button, "Comments" and "Facebook Connect", can be identified by one of Facebook's logos, such as the "f" or "thumbs-up" icon, and in practice are like a little piece of Facebook embedded on the Tingotel.com website. We also offer the option to register with our website via the "Facebook Connect" Plug-in, which allows registered users of Facebook to register with our website by using their Facebook account data without entering the required data manually on our webpage. Instead, your email address and Facebook ID will be transferred from Facebook to us and stored by us. When you land on any web page that uses these plug-ins, your browser sends certain information to Facebook. As with other sites that use these plug-ins, Tingotel does not control this data exchange.

We will do our best to respond to your request within 24 hours.
