ADVERTISING
We require that our logo and the banner advertisements of our sponsors are displayed throughout the website and our Members do not share in any revenue which may be derived from such advertisements.

WEB STORAGE
VirtualTourist provides members with free web space for their travel pages. "Free Web Space," as defined by VirtualTourist, is comprised of hypertext markup language (html) and associated files, intended solely for the audio/visual presentation of TRAVEL RELATED CONTENT on the members' Travel Pages. The spirit of Free Web Space is specifically not intended as a storage facility for members' personal digital files. Using it as such is a violation of this User Agreement. Also please note that images are only saved for the purposes of display on VirtualTourist, not for storage or other purposes. Members cannot assume that VirtualTourist will preserve the specific content, or the quality or resolution of any picture uploaded to VirtualTourist. VirtualTourist encourages our Members to post images from their travels. VirtualTourist may not allow certain individual image images to be uploaded to our members' Travel Pages if they are extremely large.

EMAIL AND PROFILE INFORMATION
VT uses e-mail to inform you of the status of your Travel Page, new membership benefits and features, to let you know of urgent problems on our site, and to present special members-only opportunities to buy products and services that are appropriate to the interests of our community. We use reasonable efforts to keep these messages to a minimum. If you elect not to receive our e-mail messages by removing yourself from our mailing list, you forfeit ALL of your VirtualTourist membership benefits including any and all free services that VT offers including, but not limited to, the VirtualTourist Travel Page hosting service.

The profile information that you submit to VT remains your property, but by submitting that information to VT you grant VT the right to use that information for internal marketing to VT?s sister and parent companies, as well as subsidiaries and affiliates, VT members and direct e-mail marketing by VT. In addition, VT reserves the right to release current or past member information in the event VirtualTourist believes that the membership is being or has been used in violation of this User Agreement or to commit unlawful acts, if the information is subpoenaed, or when VT deems it necessary or appropriate. By agreeing to the conditions of this User Agreement, you hereby consent to disclosure of any record or communication to any third party when VirtualTourist, in its sole discretion, determines the disclosure to be appropriate. For additional information, please refer to our privacy policy.

INVESTIGATION OF COMPLAINTS
We reserve the right to monitor and to investigate any complaints regarding any Content of VT members' pages, message-board postings, or any chat room statements and to take the appropriate action if VT finds any violation of this User Agreement. Accordingly, you agree that VT will have the right to access your site at any time, without advance notice. If access to your site is restricted, whether by password or otherwise, you agree to provide VT with whatever information is required to access your site. In the case of any such complaint, VT reserves the right to remove the Content complained of while the VT member and the complaining party attempt to resolve their dispute. VT is the final arbiter of what IS and IS NOT allowed on our site. Further, VT reserves the right to modify or remove anything submitted to VT, and to cancel any membership, at any time for any reason without prior notice. VT is not obliged to maintain back-up copies of any material submitted or posted on our site.

TRAVEL DESTINATIONS
Although most travel, including travel to international destinations, is completed without incident, travel to certain destinations may involve greater risk than others. VirtualTourist urges passengers to investigate and review travel prohibitions, warnings, announcements and advisories issued by the United States Government and destination country governments prior to booking travel to international destinations. Information on conditions in various countries and the level of risk associated with travel to particular international destinations can be found at www.state.gov, www.tsa.gov, www.dot.gov, www.faa.gov, www.cdc.gov, www.treas.gov/ofac and www.customs.gov.
