Trymiles knows how scary it can be to share your financial and personal data, so we do our best to keep it safe.
This Privacy Note explains how Trymiles (“site,” “Trymiles.com,” “we,” “us,” “our”) collects, stores, protects, uses, discloses, and shares your (“visitor’s,” “user’s”) information received during your use of Trymiles.com.
By using Trymiles.com, you accept our privacy practices described below. Please read them closely.
What data we collect
Trymiles may save not only the data you enter manually to get the most of our services but also any data generated during your activities on our site. Please review the details below.
Personally Identifiable Information (PII)
Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is so called because it helps identify you as a particular person. This may include your SSN, driver’s license number, or details from other ID cards.
We may gather your PII:
- when you carry out the following actions (but not only then):
- filling out forms and registration fields at Trymiles.com;
- reaching out to us via email@example.com;
- subscribing to our newsletters;
- applying for our service via a third-party website (TPW);
- taking part in marketing initiatives;
- posting your own content on our blog or comment/review sections.
- from our third-party partners.
You can refuse to share your PII with us. But remember that we ask for your PII exclusively to find the most suitable offers for you.
Nonsensitive Personally Identifiable Information (NPII)
There are many people that have the same date of birth, ZIP code, or sex. Hence these (and similar) characteristics alone don’t make you recognizable. To protect you, we store such data separately from your PII. In cases when your NPII is connected to your PII and makes you recognizable, we treat it as a part of your PII.
Routine Collection: Log Files
Trymiles.com may gather the following NPII from every visitor:
- IP address;
- OS and browser details;
- internet service provider;
- date and time stamps;
- click history;
- language preferences;
- device specifications and model;
- time zone;
- tracks of internal pages and other websites you visit along your presence on Trymiles.com.
This data is located in log files and is never used for personal identification but for routine administration and maintenance only.
We may place cookies on any device you use to access Trymiles.com. Cookies are tiny files that help us recognize you, customize our services, and protect you from fraud.
We may send temporary cookies that will be erased after you close your browser. And we may send permanent cookies that will remain on your device even after you close your browser.
There are two ways to control cookies:
- change your browser settings; or
- manually remove cookies from your device.
But remember that cookies help us serve you better. If you don’t accept them or remove them from your device, you may not be able to enjoy the full benefits of Trymiles.com.
When you follow a link on Trymiles.com, you may be redirected to a third-party website (TPW) from one of our partners. This site may apply its own cookies and other data-collecting technologies. We take neither control nor responsibility for such actions. Please turn to that particular TPW to learn more about its privacy practices.
Trymiles.com may contain web bugs. They are tiny images generating data about your behavior on the site. Web bugs allow us to track what content you access and then improve it according to your needs and interests.
How we utilize your data
We may employ your data to serve the following purposes (along with others not stated here):
We may utilize your PII and NPII to provide you with customer support, perform maintenance, and send notifications and administrative messages concerning Trymiles.com and your actions on the site.
After you register with Trymiles.com, we may send you notifications on service-related issues. You can stop receiving such notifications only by asking us to close your account.

Improvement of Services
