The ETO respects your privacy. This Privacy Statement explains how any personal information you provide on our site is processed and used by us. This Privacy Statement is designed to protect you, our users, by informing you what personal information is collected, what we do with that information, with whom we share it, how long we keep it and the methods we use to collect it. Your use of the ethiopia.travel website is subject to your agreement with this policy.
Information we collect
Simply put, our function is to facilitate your efforts to find an Ethiopian tourism product or service that suits you so the collection of personal information is limited and always voluntary. As a user of our website, you may opt-in to receive information from us, in which case we will require certain personal data from you. In all cases, you can be assured that we will only seek the most basic details needed to get the information you requested to you in a timely fashion.
The ETO does not attempt to collect further data without user consent that enables personally identifiable profiling of our users. We collect and collate generic information on all our site traffic that is only ever represented in aggregate format.
Use of your information by third parties
ETO does not sell or pass on your personal details to third parties without your consent, except in the following, highly unlikely, instances:
- where it is required by applicable law or pursuant to a court or similar order
- where it is required urgently to prevent serious loss or damage to property of the ETO
- where it is required for the purposes of obtaining legal advice or for the purposes of, or in the course of, legal proceedings to which the ETO is a party or a witness.
From time to time, we conduct joint promotional email campaigns with third parties. As part of such campaigns, if you have ‘opted in’ to receive them, we may forward promotional emails to your email address containing information on products and services that we feel may be of interest to you. Such emails may include links to the websites of third parties, and in this regard we would refer you to the section headed 'Security' below. We will not make your personal information available to any third party and any promotional emails will always be sent by us.
When you enter your contact details on one of our web forms you will have the opportunity to opt out of receiving promotional information from us. This can be done by simply checking the relevant box on the form.
If you decide that you no longer wish to receive promotional information, you can contact us and we will remove you from our mailing list.

We will not levy any charge in respect of the above actions.
