At AmTrav, we know that everybody says, “We take privacy very seriously.” So ultimately what matters is not what we say, but what we do. And we’re out to demonstrate that, with respect to privacy, we will do everything in our power to do right by our customers.
If you’re using our site, chances are we’re collecting information about you. Usually, this is information that we ask you to provide like your name or your email address or where you want to travel. In these cases, the information we collect comes directly from you.
If you are an employee of a company that manages their travel through AmTrav, your employer may also provide information about you. Your employer can provide information to us about you by having a designated Travel Administrator or Travel Coordinator use the “Users & Travelers” section on our web site; through a bulk data upload; via an Application Programmer’s Interface (API); or through a Single Sign On hand off (SSO).
There are other pieces of information that we gather less explicitly, through your browser or browser “cookies”, without directly asking you for it. This includes information about the computer or device you are using or your geolocation (where you are).
We store most of the information we collect. Some of it we only store for brief periods, like for the duration of the time you are on our site, but most we store on a more long-term basis, for as long as there continues to be a business need for it.

We are Payment Card Industry (PCI) Level One compliant (the most stringent level). Annually, we submit to an onsite audit and internal and external penetration test. In addition, we run internal and external vulnerability scans on our network at least once per quarter.

We ask for your contact information like your email address and, in some cases, phone number because sometimes it’s necessary for us or a supplier to contact you about a booking you have made for yourself or others. We promise not to abuse that trust. When we communicate with you it’s because:
