Note that if you include Personal Information in your Content, it can be used and viewed by others. We are not responsible for the information you choose to include in your Content.
Cookies, and How We Use Them
"Cookies" are pieces of information that are stored by your web browser on your computer's hard disk, for record-keeping purposes. Cookies in and of themselves only identify your computer; they do not personally identify you.
Most web browsers allow you to turn off cookies; however, turning off cookies will limit your use of our websites and Applications. To learn more about changing your browser's cookie settings, please see the appropriate informational link:
Internet Explorer: http://windows.microsoft/en-US/windows-vista/Cookies-frequently-asked-questions
Third-Party Cookies: Rio.tours is committed to providing you with relevant content and information across our sites. To do this, we may collect information about your searches and other site activities and use third-party advertising companies to serve ads while you are visiting our websites and we permit these companies to place and access their own cookies on your computer in the course of serving advertisements. Such advertisers do not have access to the information we collect through Rio.tours cookies. To opt out of this targeted online advertising, please click here. Other companies' use of their cookies is subject to their own privacy policies and not ours.
Web Beacons: Our websites also may use Web beacons (also known as clear gifs, pixel tags or Web bugs), which are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, that are placed in the code of a Web page. We use Web beacons to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our sites to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our site from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, and to improve site performance. We also may allow our service providers to use Web beacons to help us understand which emails have been opened by recipients and to track the visitor traffic and actions on our site. This helps us measure the effectiveness of our content and other offerings.
Data collected by business partners and ad networks to serve you with relevant advertising: Many of the advertisements you see on the Rio.tours family of sites are served by Rio.tours or its service providers; however, we also allow third parties to collect information about your online activities through cookies and other technologies. These third parties include (1) business partners, who collect information when you view or interact with one of their advertisements on our sites, and (2) advertising networks, who collect information about your interests when you view or interact with one of the advertisements they place on many different websites on the Internet. The information gathered by these third parties is used to make predictions about your characteristics, interests or preferences and to display advertisements on our sites and across the Internet tailored to your apparent interests.
Response to Do Not Track signals: Your web browser may transmit a "Do Not Track" ("DNT") signal to Rio.tours and other websites. Because of differences in web browsers' default settings and the manner in which browsers incorporate DNT signals, it is sometimes unclear to site operators whether site visitors have selected the DNT setting themselves, or whether they are aware that they have a choice in determining the setting. Rio.tours does not currently respond to DNT signals. Once the Internet industry has settled on standards related to this issue and Rio.tours recognizes such standards, we may reevaluate this approach.

We use the services of third-party marketing companies to help us measure the effectiveness of our advertising and how visitors use our website.

For multi-day and overnight tours, date changes made within seven (7) days of your confirmed travel date may also be subject to additional fees.
If you make a purchase using a Rio.tours promotion code, or if you accept a discount or special-offer price during the Rio.tours checkout process, you may invalidate your discount or special-offer price by making any changes or amendments to your itinerary once your purchase is complete. Rio.tours may decide, at its sole discretion, to honor your discount or special-offer pricing if you make a post-purchase change or amendment to your itinerary. However Rio.tours reserves the right to invalidate your discount or special-offer pricing if you make any changes to your confirmed itinerary.
Occasionally our suppliers and/or service providers make changes to tour dates, prices, inclusions, coverage, age requirements, and other Product features and/or requirements. As a result, Rio.tours reserves the right to cancel, change or substitute any service, tour, ticket or product that you have booked at this Website, at any time, for any reason. In such cases, if you are dissatisfied with the alternatives offered, you are entitled to a full refund of the original purchase price. Notwithstanding the above, when we are informed in advance by our agents, service providers and/or suppliers of a significant change to a booking and/or to a tour, product or event, we make every reasonable effort to notify the consumer, travel agent and/or distributor as appropriate, in order to amend or re-issue the booking where feasible.
For products noted as a “Worry-free Shore Excursion”, if you are not returned to the ship in time to board, we will arrange the necessary transport to the next port-of-call. This policy applies only to our contracted local suppliers and only when, through no fault or action of your own, you are not returned to the ship in time to board. The policy is void in instances where delay is caused by your own actions and/or you have deviated from the Rio.tours activity or tour. You must supply Rio.tours with correct arrival and departure ship information and ensure there is enough time (minimum 2 hours) between the tour end time and the ship departure time. You must contact Rio.tours directly to request next port-of-call transportation arrangements as customers cannot book their own travel. Rio.tours will select and book travel for you to the next port of call (not to exceed US$1,000 per person). In addition, if your ship misses a port of call or is delayed beyond the commencement time of your Worry-free Shore Excursion, simply contact Rio.tours within 14 days. Pending verification of the ship's actual itinerary, we will issue you a refund. Rio.tours's 'Worry-Free Shore Excursion' guarantee does not apply to excursions with private tour guides booked through Rio.tours's Private Guide program.

If you make a purchase using a Rio.tours gift certificate (“Gift Certificate”), Rio.tours requires that you present the Gift Certificate used to purchase your tour, ticket or package at the time of redemption.
