Trips

A key functionality offered by FairplayTrips is the creation of “trips”. A trip in FairplayTrips is a set of information gathered by a user and useful for her touristic activities.

By default, all trips created on FairplayTrips are private. This means that only you or the people (with or without a FairplayTrips account) you have explicitly shared your trip with can view your trip.

It is possible to mark any trip that you have created as “public” by selecting the appropriate option in the trip sharing page. In the case where you have set your trip to be public, any FairplayTrips user will have access to your trip’s information. It is possible to change your trip visibility at any time, bearing in mind that, when a trip has been set to public once, another user may have made a copy of it at that time.

Contacts

In order to facilitate the sharing of trips between FairplayTrips users, and if you have a FairplayTrips account, you have the opportunity to create a contact list linked to your account. Only you know the content of that list, and you only have access to your contacts’ public name.

When you create a contact relationship with another user, you also become a contact for that user. In the same way, your contacts only know your public name.

Votes

All users with a FairplayTrips account can vote to express a positive or negative opinion on content elements available on FairplayTrips. Your individual votes are not public, and can only be known by you. However, they are used in non-identifying and aggregate manner to build and make available further useful information to FairplayTrips users.
