MAINE OFFICE OF TOURISM
Your privacy is important to the Maine Office of Tourism (MOT). We treat your information with care.
This Privacy Statement shows you how we handle personally-identifiable information – the kind of personal information you share with us through our digital and printed communication – and non-personally-identifiable information that we may automatically collect.
When you use our Website (VisitMaine.com), digital newsletters and other forms of on-line communications, we may ask you for Personally-Identifiable, or personal, Information, which is information, without more, can be directly associated with a specific person. This may include your name, address, email address, and telephone number; demographic information, such as household information, age groups, etc.; and information about your travel interests.
It is MOT’s policy to treat that personally-identifiable information as strictly confidential. MOT will not sell or give that personally-identifiable information to third parties. There are two exceptions. First, you may tell us – by clicking a button on VisitMaine.com -- to provide your personal information to selected Maine tourism organizations. Those organizations will then provide you with additional travel information. Second, we may be required by law to disclose your personal information in conjunction with a public records request, government inquiry or a litigation or dispute resolution.
We use tracking tools called cookies, or other technologies, that may be placed in the browser of your computer, tablet or mobile phone, to collect non-personally-identifiable information. This sort of information includes things such as an internet protocol (IP) address, operating system, browser type and the websites the user views right before arriving at, while navigating and immediately after leaving the Website. This gives us general location data, which we may share with our service providers, so we might learn how effective our advertisements are at inspiring people like you to research and visit Maine.
