Privacy Policy 

Black Sea Silk Road Corridor (BSSRC) is an online service that provides information on historic sites and monuments, archaeological sites, natural parks, museums and other cultural entities, places of entertainment, hotels, resorts, travel packages, and lots more. Our website, mobile properties, and related applications (collectively, our “Website”) are part of the BSSRC2014, which is owned and operated by Black Sea Silk Road Corridor (BSSRC). More details about Black Sea Silk Road Corridor (BSSRC) can be found below under “How you can contact us.”

Please read this Policy carefully to learn about our privacy practices. By visiting BSSRC’s website, www. or using a Black Sea Silk Road Corridor (BSSRC) application (an “Application” or “App”) on a mobile phone, tablet, or similar device (a “Device”) or in connection with other sites or services, you are accepting the practices described herein:

In General.

·         From stakeholders, like keepers of heritage sites, natural parks, museum, tourist services and any other kind of organisation that could benefit from this site, we receive and store information about you and enter it on our Website. This includes information that can identify you ("personal information"), including your name, telephone number, postal and email addresses and information about your organisation or service [i.e., text, images]. We do not ask for user name and password, and billing information as we are not an e-commerce site.

·         From users (i.e., visitors), we may ask information about your travel plans, style, and preferences, including meal requests, seat selection, frequent flyer/hotel/car rental program information, and flight class, luggage, and ticketing options and other information on tourism and culture.

You can choose not to provide information to us.

Information from Other Sources.

We also may periodically obtain both personal and non-personal information about you from affiliated entities, business partners and other independent third-party sources and add it to other information about you. For example, if you visit Black Sea Silk Road Corridor (BSSRC) from a site operated by another business, like Facebook or a commercial website or any other website operated by someone else that you have connections with, and you have registered with that business, then information about you that you have provided to that partner or business may be shared with us, such as contact information and demographic information. We will work with our existing partners and potential future partners to improve and personalise your use of our APP in accordance with the practices outlined in this section and Policy.

We have partnered with Facebook to provide personalised content on Black Sea Silk Road Corridor (BSSRC) for members of Facebook. For example, we will show you reviews that your Facebook friends have posted on Black Sea Silk Road Corridor (BSSRC) and places they have visited. In order to provide you with this personalised experience, Facebook provides us with information that you have chosen to make available pursuant to your Facebook privacy settings. That information may include your name, profile picture, gender, friend lists and any other information you have chosen to make available.

Automatic Information.

We automatically collect some information from your computer or Device when you visit BSSRC. For example, we will collect session data, including your IP address, Web browser software, and referring website. We also may collect information about your online activity, such as content viewed, pages visited, and searches. One of our goals in collecting this automatic information is to help us understand the interests and preferences of our users and customise your user experience.

Location Information and Other Information from Devices.

When you use an Application on a Device, we will collect and use information about you in generally similar ways and for similar purposes as when you use the Black Sea Silk Road Corridor (BSSRC) website. In addition, we may collect information about your location if you have instructed your Device to send such information to the Application via the privacy settings on that Device, or if you have uploaded photos tagged with location information. We may use the location information collected from your Device or photos to enhance your use of the Application by providing you with relevant content and contextual advertising. For example, we may use your location to show you reviews of hotels or restaurants near you when you are travelling. You can change the privacy settings of your Device at any time, in order to turn off the functionality to share location information with the Application and/or the functionality to tag your photos with location information. Please note that turning off location sharing may affect certain features of our App. If you have any queries about the privacy settings of your Device, we suggest you contact the manufacturer of your Device or your mobile service provider for help.
