TripMemo is into the travel business; our applications connect travellers to guides and other service providers over the internet. It’s never been more important to protect the information in our organisation. Cyber-attacks have become more prevalent and sophisticated; supply chains are more complex, and the volume of important information handled by our organisation continues to increase. If we do not make sure our information is secure, we could risk financial penalties or fines. We just can’t afford not to have a system in place to protect the information in our business. ISO/IEC 27001 helps us to manage information so that it remains safe and secure, helping us build a responsive and resilient business.
TripMemo has adapted ISO 27001:2013 as our framework for Information Security.
Internationally recognized ISO/IEC 27001 is an excellent framework which helps organisations to manage and protect their information assets so that they remain safe and secure. ISO/IEC 27001 helps us to protect our reputation, save money, achieve compliance, and reduce risks. By embracing the standard and putting in place effective processes, we send a clear signal to our customers, subscribers and other stakeholders about how serious we are regarding information security. Here is how ISO/IEC 27001 helps our organisation.
We bring information security into the heart of our business
It raises the importance of information security in our organisation and ensures it supports our business strategy and objectives. It is really a business management tool which helps us understand what information we have, where it is, and most importantly, how we protect it. It is the most effective way of managing our information and can save us from costly fines and losses.
Helps us win more business and protects our reputation
ISO/IEC 27001 clearly demonstrates that we take information security seriously. It helps reassure customers and subscribers that we have identified risks and have the best practice in place to control and minimize these. It helps to differentiate our organisation, satisfy supply chain requirements, and expand into new markets. It also protects us from the adverse publicity that comes with security breaches.
ISO/IEC 27001requires commitment and involvement from our leadership team. Top management are responsible for the system’s effectiveness and for making sure the whole organisation understands how we contribute to the Information Security Management System (ISMS). Recent trends show that people are as likely to cause a data breach as viruses and other types of malicious software. Creating a culture whereby the importance of information security is promoted and embraced avoids confusion and provides clarity.
Helps us identify risks and improve
We identify and manage risks relevant to our Information Security Management System and continually evaluate its effectiveness. This is particularly important when technology is constantly changing and new threats can arise unanticipatedly. We evaluate the effectiveness of the controls we put in place to manage risks and make sure they are proportionate to the potential impact on our business. This helps us to keep our organisation resilient and optimise the performance of our Information Security.
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Europe
GDPR is an initiative by European Union on the Privacy Protection of EU Citizens. GRPR is effective from May 25, 2018.
The GDPR applies to data controllers and data processors established in the EU. It also becomes applicable to data controllers or processors offering goods or services to the EU. TripMemo being a data controller as well as data processor established in EU, we have taken utmost care to ensure we are in compliance with the GDPR requirements.
Our approach to GDPR compliance is based on the implementation of six principles of processing the personal data of our customers/subscribers as prescribed by GDPR.
TripMemo ensures that Personal Data is only processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner in relation to the Travels and Subscribers.
Collected for Specific & Legitimate Purpose
We ensure that every data is collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and not is further processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes. Further processing by our subscribers is based on the consent of the data subjects and is not to be considered incompatible with the initial purposes.
Adequate and Relevant
We ensure personal data is adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed.
Accurate and Kept Up-to-date
TripMemo ensures the integrity of data and checks for its accuracy and, where necessary, are kept up to date. We ensure all reasonable measures are taken to ensure that personal data that are not accurate, having no regard to the purposes for which they are processed, are erased or rectified without delay.
Kept No Longer Than Necessary
Personal data is kept in a form which permits identification of travellers for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the personal data are processed. Personal data may be stored for longer periods insofar as the personal data will be processed solely for archiving purposes or statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89(1) of GDPR subjected to implementation of the appropriate technical and organisational measures within TripMemo required by GDPR in order to safeguard the rights and freedoms of the users of the TripMemo applications.
Adequate Protection of Data
Personal data is processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the personal data, including protection against unauthorized or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage, using appropriate technical and organisational measures. TripMemo follows ISO 27001:2013, since it is a very effective measure to ensure the Confidentiality and Integrity of personal data.
Here is how TripMemo benefits from its compliance with GDPR
❖ Builds trust in managing personal information ❖ Facilitates effective business agreements ❖ Supports compliance with privacy regulations ❖ Provides transparency between stakeholders ❖ Clarifies roles and responsibilities ❖ Reduces complexity by integrating with the leading Information Security Standard, ISO/IEC 27001
The International Organization for Standardization is an international standard-setting body composed of representatives from various national standards organizations. Founded on 23 February 1947, the organization promotes worldwide proprietary, industrial, and commercial standards.

However, they also might have entered into additional but separate agreements for the paid services used within the TripMemo® network.
AS A USER OF THE SERVICES, INCLUDING TRIPMEMO® COMPANIES’ BOOKING FACILITATION SERVICES, YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT:
(1) TRIPMEMO® WILL NOT HAVE ANY LIABILITY TO YOU OR OTHERS FOR ANY ENQUIRIES OR TRANSACTIONS MADE USING YOUR PASSWORD OR ACCOUNT.
(2) THE UNAUTHORISED USE OF YOUR PASSWORD OR ACCOUNT COULD CAUSE YOU TO INCUR LIABILITY TO TRIPMEMO®, ITS CORPORATE AFFILIATES, AND/OR OTHERS.

TripMemo® also reserves the right to take steps to verify your identity before processing your use of the services or reservation request.
In the unlikely event that a reservation is available when you place an order but becomes unavailable prior to the arrival or transfer of part or full payment, your sole remedy will be to contact the supplier to make alternative arrangements or to cancel your reservation or even to claim compensation as per the terms of services you have agreed to, on interacting with that particular advertiser.

We are neither a part of any dispute or conflict involving an actual or potential transaction between you and an advertiser/supplier, or even regarding the quality, condition(s), safety or legality of a listed Tour Guide, Tour Management, Items Rental, Holiday Rental, Restaurant, Experience, or any travel enabling services and the accuracy of the listing content, the advertiser’s ability to conduct a tour, quality of services, conditions of your engagement and safety with the advertiser, and other terms and conditions. These are solely the responsibility of each user and advertiser.

Before you travel abroad, it is also your responsibility to consult a physician for current recommendations on inoculations to ensure that you meet all health requirements and to follow all medical guidance related to your trip.
Although most of the trips, including those to international destinations, are completed without mishaps or other unfortunate incidents, it is to be noted that certain destinations, however, may involve higher risks than the others. TripMemo® urges all travellers to investigate and review the travel prohibitions, warnings, announcements, and advisories issued by their governments and the destination country’s governments prior to booking the travel to international destinations. For example, information on conditions in various countries and the level of risk associated while travelling to certain international destinations is provided by the United States Government.
BY LISTING THE RELEVANT INFORMATION FOR THE TRAVEL TO CERTAIN INTERNATIONAL DESTINATIONS, TRIPMEMO® DOES NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THAT TRAVELLING TO SUCH POINTS IS ADVISABLE OR WITHOUT RISK. TRIPMEMO® IS NOT LIABLE FOR THE DAMAGES OR LOSSES THAT MAY RESULT FROM TRAVELLING TO SUCH DESTINATIONS.

If TripMemo® is found liable for any loss or damage that arises out of or is in any way connected with your use of the services, the liability will in no event exceed, in the aggregate, the greater of (a) the fee paid to TripMemo® Companies for the transaction(s) on or through the services giving rise to the claim, or (b) ten US Dollars (US $10.00).
The limitation of liability reflects the allocation of risk between the parties. The limitations specified in this section will survive and apply even if any limited remedy specified in these terms is found to have been failed of its essential purpose. The limitations of liability provided in these terms inure to the benefit of the TripMemo® Companies.
THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS ALONG WITH THE FOREGOING LIABILITY DISCLAIMER DO NOT AFFECT THE MANDATORY LEGAL RIGHTS THAT CANNOT BE EXCLUDED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, FOR EXAMPLE, UNDER THE CONSUMER PROTECTION LAWS PREVALENT IN CERTAIN COUNTRIES.
IF THE LAW OF THE COUNTRY WHERE YOU LIVE DOES NOT ALLOW ANY PARTICULAR LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY PROVIDED FOR IN THIS CLAUSE, IT WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED APPLICABLE. THE LIABILITY DISCLAIMER WILL OTHERWISE APPLY TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT ALLOWED BY YOUR LOCAL LAW.
You agree to defend and indemnify TripMemo® and any of their officers, directors, employees, and agents from and against any claims, causes of action, demands, recoveries, losses, damages, fines, penalties, costs, or other expenses of any nature, including but not limited to reasonable legal and accounting fees, brought by third parties as a result of:

Your Privacy Matters
What is TripMemo®?
The affiliated services and the software of TripMemo® by itself belong to two of the registered entities under TripMemo®. They are: (1) TripMemo (UK) Limited, incorporated under the laws of United Kingdom with its registered office at 71-75 Shelton Street, Convent Gardens, London, WC2H 9JQ, United Kingdom and (2) TripMemoTechnologies Pvt LTD which has been established under the laws of Republic of India, with its registered office in Villas7, Golden Dew, Vennala P.O. , Cochin -28, India.
TripMemo® takes its form as both a website (www.tripmemo.com) and mobile applications (iOS and Android). TripMemo® is loaded with user-friendly attributes like creating lists, and our features, i.e. attributes that TripMemo® makes available, such as the ability for users to create/manage lists, posts, bookings, referrals, forums, quotations, itineraries, etc. It also makes the space interesting with Loyalty Points (polo coins), content based on destinations, species and attractions, advertisers' details, videos, raring systems, trips, quotes, tips, wish lists, reviews, photos sourced from users, and smooth widgets that facilitate a systematic and hassle-free user experience.
What type of User Data is collected?
We receive and process the details you provide to us during your account creation. The following information is collected and processed once you become a user of TripMemo® or TripMemo Go mobile applications:
As applicable as in:
On processing these personal data, TripMemo® gives you access to its services. TripMemo® processes these personal data to create your account and to allow you to avail the services.
As you interact with us and use our services, we may collect other data that you directly provide to us as a user, which includes:
TripMemo® processes this data to promote optimisation and the user’s interaction with fellow users or advertisers. The processing is necessary for the legitimate interests pursued by TripMemo® to facilitate content creation and communication between users and advertisers.
When you order products or services advertised in TripMemo®, you may have to provide personal information necessary to the advertiser or third parties such as payment gateways to complete the transaction, including the details of:
TripMemo® shall not be responsible for any such data as you will be directly sending them using third-party service providers. We do not keep the dates of your transactions in our server systems (please refer to Terms of Service agreement for more details). You are expected to note the advertisers' Terms & Conditions and Data & Privacy Policies before you proceed with any such transactions.
Though we do not track or keep your credit card name, number, passwords, or transaction details, we may keep a copy of the required transaction confirmation from the payment gateways for our records and to measure our internal arrangements with such payment gateways or advertisers, if any.
Some features and functionalities in TripMemo® require that you provide your location. This section explains when and how we use your location data.
The information we collect in order to determine your location consists of your location and/or IP address whenever you interact with, or use, our services (e.g. open the app, visit our website, etc.). We use various technologies to determine your location, such as the following:
When you Open and Use or Interact with our Apps
If you have your location services turned on whenever you open, use, or interact with our website or apps on your mobile device, we collect and use your location data from the same mobile device to tailor the services with respect to your current location (i.e. we will show your current location or a list of nearby locations and trips). If you have a current trip, we will process and store your location data as part of your trip data, thus making it visible to people who have access to your trip. We will process your location data only with your permission.
When you are Not Directly Interacting with the Apps
If you have background location data turned on by granting us permission through your device's location settings, we shall, from time to time, obtain your device's location even if you are not directly interacting with the apps. Our use of this data depends on whether you have a current trip or not:
Automatically Generated Information
TripMemo® requires certain information for the services to function properly. For this reason, TripMemo® collects automatically generated information on the use of our services. For example, we receive data:
TripMemo® requires this information for the service to work as optimally as possible (for example, to display content correctly and to keep the service secure). The processing of these personal data is therefore necessary for the legitimate interests pursued by TripMemo®.
Data Received from Third Parties
We may receive data about you from third parties if they serve us with websites or applications that integrate with our API or analytics services. This data may include but not limited to details about your activity when using the services, or on unaffiliated websites and apps, data received from web browsers or operating systems such as browser types and settings; the operating systems, device models, carriers, location information, IP address, mobile device and advertising identifiers (e.g. Apple IDFA or Google Advertising ID), as well as cookie information, pixel or other similar technology. For instance, if you created your account using Facebook, we may receive certain information from Facebook, such as your first name, last name, gender, birthday, email address, and your Facebook ID.
We currently use Google Analytics for Display Advertising. Google Analytics collects information anonymously and reports website trends without identifying individual visitors. Google Analytics uses its cookie to track visitor interactions. Website owners can view a variety of reports about how visitors interact with their website so that they can focus on optimising their place on the internet.
To Operate, Maintain and Improve the Services
We may use your data to operate/ maintain the services, and for our better understanding of your preferences so as to tailor the services to you. If you use the services when you are not logged into your TripMemo® account, we may combine the data collected while you were not logged in with your TripMemo® account, once you log in again.
We may also use your data for research and development, to improve the services, or to offer new products, features, and tools. For example, we may redesign the apps to make it easier for you to search for a travel destination, prepare an itinerary, track your trips, or when we move on to new technology platforms. The processing of your data in this context is necessary for the legitimate interests pursued by TripMemo®, namely, to improve the services and to offer new products, features, and tools.
We may also use your data to customize our Apps and Site to provide you with your own special experience. We do this by inferring your interests and preferences, considering your travel preferences and search history, or allowing you to find and add friends who are also using the Apps and Site from your device's contact list. Your Facebook account is also applicable if you have connected it with your TripMemo® account. In these situations, we do not store your contact lists. Based on your travel history and behaviour, we may, for instance, assume that you prefer birding sites instead of snorkelling points and hence, show you more recommendations for birding activities and advertisements of birding related suppliers. The processing of these personal data is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by TripMemo®, namely, to give you recommendations, personalize your experience, and show you advertisements of great relevance to your type of travels and interests.
Additionally, if you give consent to sharing crash data (when the apps crash) with us, we may use that data to analyse the cause of the crash. The processing of these personal data is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by TripMemo®, namely, to secure and improve the service.
To Communicate with You
We may use your data to communicate with you via email, text (only if you opt-in), or through our in-house messaging systems embedded along with your account, to inform you about new product offers, service updates, or anything else we think may be of interest to you. You can opt-out of receiving marketing and promotional communications in your app settings. The processing of these personal data is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by TripMemo®, namely, direct marketing.
For Protection of Our Rights
We may use your data to protect the rights, property or safety of TripMemo®, the services, our users and employees, or any third party. For example, we may use your data if we need to enforce or apply our Terms of Service or Policies. The processing of these personal data is necessary for the purposes of all legitimate interests pursued by TripMemo®. In the event of a formal request by any statutory authorities from your country of nationality or residence or by any authorities to reveal your account details, transaction details, or any such information related to your engagement with TripMemo®, and that it is morally and legally rightful for TripMemo® to do so, we may share such data with them without serving you any notice or seeking your approval.
i. Third Party Service Providers
We may share your Personal Information with third-party service providers: a) to render the services that we offer you, b) to conduct quality assurance testing, c) to facilitate the creation of accounts, and d) to provide technical support and/or other services to TripMemo®. These third-party service providers cannot use your personal information other than to provide the services requested by TripMemo®.
ii. Affiliates and Acquisitions
iii. Other Disclosures
Data Available to People with Access to Your Trip
When you create a trip, it includes the search for destination information, activities, advertisers, suppliers, or any services that may help you to carry out your trip on TripMemo®. This trip includes the data created by you and/or collected by TripMemo® from registered members including you. The Trip Data includes your written texts, photos, your past or planned visits to businesses, establishments, destinations, sites, attractions, etc. It also includes your routes, current location, statistics about your trip, social interactions (e.g. likes, comments, or tips) by yourself or other people regarding your trip.
Data Available to People with Access to another User's Trip
If you interact with the trip of another user, people with access to that trip might see your social interactions. If the owner of a trip changes the trip’s privacy level, your social interactions with that trip might become publicly available. You can always remove your social interactions by deleting or undoing them. (Interaction with another user about the trip etc. will normally be voluntary. By doing this, the user undertakes that the privacy-level of his trip is liable to change based on the alterations in the level of privacy.)
Data Available to Your Followers
Your followers may see your publicly available data (see below), trip data (except ‘Only me’ trips), the lists of your followers, people whom you follow, and travel statistics.
Publicly Available Data
When you use the services, note that certain information is public, such as your name, TripMemo® handle, username, profile photo, hometown, country, travel choices, public trips, your social interaction on public trips of other users such as forums, your number of followers, and the number of people that you follow. These details may be followed, be searchable by search engines, and be disclosed to third parties including our partners and customers.
Data that May Be Shared with Third Party Partners and Service Providers
We may have service providers, vendors, advertisers and contractors to provide or perform services on our behalf. In these cases, we may need to share your personal data with them. When you order a service from a referral site, we will share your trip data and your order data (e.g. your name and address) with our referral partners.
We may place advertisements from our registered members or third-party advertisers in TripMemo® and related mobile sites near to your data, to generate income for TripMemo®. We may use profiling practices mentioned above to display suitable advertisements based on profiles. Our service providers, advertisers, referral partners, vendors, and contractors will be subject to binding contractual obligations to (i) only process the personal data in accordance with our prior written instructions, and not use them for any other purposes, and (ii) use appropriate measures to protect the confidentiality and integrity of the personal data together with any additional requirements under the applicable law.
When we partner with a business, we may share data with them but only in an aggregate and anonymous form, such as de-identified data about visits to places (which is not tied to individual users). We may also share or disclose aggregated, pseudonymised, and/or anonymous data to third parties, including other TripMemo® Users and developers who use our API or SDK, for analytical purposes.
We may share your data as part or in anticipation of a business sale, merger, consolidation, investment, change in control, transfer of substantial corporate assets, reorganization, liquidation, similar business transactions, or corporate events.
Consequences of Disclosing Information
Sharing Your Trip Data
People with access to your trip can see all your trip data (as described above). Individuals reading this information may use or disclose it to other individuals or entities without our control and your knowledge. Hence, we recommend you to be careful about including any specific information you may deem private, in trips, comments, plans, tips, or other content that you create during the use of our services.
Sharing Your Trip Real Time with Your Dear Ones
The ‘tag my trip’ (auto blogging) functionality will enable you to share your trip with a limited number of people who can use it to view your trip journal and data. Making someone a virtual traveller (tagging your journal writing tool with any TripMemo® registered user) with you implies that more people than the person you initially shared the link with, may potentially see your trip. This happens when your virtual co-traveller shares a link you sent, to a third person, or if a third person opens the link from the history of a browser which is used by multiple people. It is to be noted that your data can become accessible to people with whom you do not intend to share it.
Sharing Your Current Location
Features such as ‘Tag My Trip’ or real-time Social Media sharing may automatically make your current location available to people with access to your trip. We urge you to think carefully about using the 'Travel Tracker' functionality and to have an eye on the possible consequences of setting the privacy level of a current trip to ‘Real-Time & Everyone,’ which makes your current location visible to the public.
How does TripMemo® protect your personal information?
TripMemo® has proper technical and organisational measures to safeguard your (personal) data against loss or any other form of unlawful processing.
How long does TripMemo® keep your personal information?
TripMemo® will store your personal data as long as necessary to perform the purposes of processing stated. This means that we keep the data at least for the time you make use of our services. We remove all your personal data without any delay once you delete your account.
What Rights do Users have?
Under the European General Data Protection Regulation, the users have a number of rights regarding their personal data and the processing thereof:
You may send your request to TripMemo® at [email protected] TripMemo® shall respond to your request without delay and in any event within 30 days of receipt of the request. This period may be extended by two further months if necessary, considering the complexity and number of requests. TripMemo® shall inform you of any such extension within 30 days of receipt of the request, together with the reasons for the delay.
If no action is taken on your request, TripMemo® shall inform you without delay and at the latest within 30 days of receipt of the request, the reasons for not taking action. In that case, you also have the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority and to seek a judicial remedy.
Can I Opt-Out?
How to Opt -Out of Marketing/ Promotional Emails and Text Messages
You can opt-out of marketing or promotional messages at any time by adjusting your preferences in the ‘Notification Settings’ tab in the Apps. You may also unsubscribe from “Emails” in the footer of any marketing or promotional email. Please note that you cannot opt-out of the essential service emails or legal notices. By opting out of marketing or promotional emails, you may miss out on many exciting opportunities to earn Polo coins or to participate in various community-building activities.
How to Remove Background Location Sharing?
If you use our Apps and have opted to share your background location with us, you may remove your permission at any time by going to your operating device settings and toggling off background sharing. This may result in a partial or complete halt in the functioning of many features in our websites, apps and tools.
If you wish to use our referral service to tell a friend about our site, we would require the person’s name and e-mail address. We will automatically send a one-time e-mail inviting them to visit the site. TripMemo® stores this information for the sole purpose of one-time e-mailing and tracking the progress of our referral program. Your friend may contact us to request that we remove this information from our database.
What if I have Queries or Complaints?
All questions regarding the processing of customers’ personal data by TripMemo® may be addressed to [email protected] via email.

Have you ever felt so rejuvenated by your experience in the woods? Do wildlife tours excite you? And have you ever had an irresistible impulse to record your wildlife sightings? If yes, get ready to let the world know of your wild ventures!
‘Wildlife Memo,’ the free mobile app introduced by TripMemoGO, lets you document wildlife sightings, including the coverage of birds, mammals and butterflies from more than 283 countries and territories.
In addition to being an engaging pastime, keeping a record of the sightings is crucial for the conservation of wildlife. The wildlife documents are more likely to help the conservationists with information regarding land management and the impact of human activities on species. Regular monitoring of wildlife helps in assessing the current state of the natural environment, which is easily identifiable, as a small change in the climate or habitat affects the species significantly. To understand the type of wildlife prevailing in a location, adequate data obtained from the exact location is required.
Common and daily-based records on wildlife aid in analysing the present condition of various natural habitats. As most of the species today are on the verge of extinction, these documents would facilitate the protection of at least the remaining numbers, without delay. Don’t think twice before choosing the Wildlife Memo App to befriend you in your next outing into the wilderness. Remember to invite your friends to the TripMemo Community and experience the spirit of ‘Wildlife Memo.’
Here is a checklist of the 4 key points to be noted before you start with your recording:
What did I see? - Record what you have seen, including details, like its gender and English and species name. You need to be accurate with your identification, or you could seek clarity from professionals/experts if you have got doubts. You can also use our forums or user-contributed photos for this purpose.
When did I see it? - Be specific about the date you observed it and remember to record the exact day, month and year. Unclear and vague entries are not accepted (like “beginning of March,” for instance). Wildlife Memo has got an in-built feature to do this function automatically.
Where did I see? - Enter the accurate location in which you observed it. The Wildlife Memo App will make this job easier as it uses the GPS locator (along with Photos only) and our database of adventure-activity locations worldwide.
Where do I record? - Although there are many ways to record your observations, noting them on a paper/notebook is the most traditional way among them. However, you can depend on various online sites or mobile apps for this purpose.
Wildlife Memo is a listing app designed for wildlife photographers, bird watchers and butterfly enthusiasts to identify, record, store and share your sightings as soon as they take place. Wildlife Memo is available as a free app for users who register during the launch phase.
Wine Tours have gained wide popularity over the years and are now a worldwide expedition characterised by taste, culture, and above all, a journey to explore the inner soul of vineyards.
Wine Tasting, however, is not as complex as people make it seem to be. The goal is to understand the basic concept of Wine Tasting and know what aspects to search for. People make different choices when it comes to wine, and this is purely based on their different taste preferences.
TripMemo is an emerging global online community meant exclusively for adventure travellers and travel enablers. We have launched its new app named Connoisseur Memo, which is a Wine, Whiskey and Beer tasting app that suits both beginners and seasoned connoisseurs alike. You can download it for FREE from Android and iOS App stores.
The tasting process is sectioned into two categories. The first of them is the taster’s personal preferences of wine based on the factors like colour, smell and taste. The latter part is about using such information drawn from these personal preferences to create a general conclusion about what a majority of the crowd prefers in wine. The factors that decide these can range from the price, variety of grape, origin and food pairings.
Bringing clarity to what people choose helps in a better understanding of the key elements to search for in a wine tour.
KNOW YOUR NOSE
Science claims that around 50% of a human’s taste comes from the smell, and obviously, a person can absorb a lot of satisfaction just by smelling the wine even before taking a drink of it. The core aroma of wine is released when the bottle is shaken, and the wine gets a swirl. Although they are fine and delicate, the smell they unfurl is quite tangy and strong. This is why your nose is your best friend in understanding the nature and properties of the wine.
Here are some interesting signs to check on while knowing the wine by smell.
Reduction: It is a method of wine production that stands out from the rest by its smell similar to that of rotten eggs or boiled cabbages. Minor levels of reduction are explained with words like ‘minerality’ or ‘stony,’ as they include more of a strong and concentrated fruit flavour. High levels of reduction are rarely liked as it turns out to develop an extremely unpleasant smell.
Oxidation: Oxidation is in strong contrast with reduction as they are primarily opposite to each other. In oxidation, the wine has a browner shade with a tempting smell of toffee, caramel and honey. The reason behind this nature is the high level of dissolved oxygen, due to which the fruit flavour is weakened.
TCA (Trichloroanisole): The sign of TCA includes a smell that is much similar to that of wet cardboard, and it brings about a reduction in the fruit flavour. It is difficult to identify when the taint is on a minor level. However, if there is a higher level of TCA, it means that the wine is probably flawed by the cork or even by a defect in the winery.
In terms of detecting aromas, there are three sub-categories as listed below:
Primary: It is a basic fruity smell that dominates the wine content, which gives an idea about the specific kind of grape used.
Secondary: These aromas are simply a backdrop or addition to the primary and are dependent on the production process. Oak is a significant flavour on secondary smells, and the various aromas in oak-based production include vanilla, coconut, tobacco, leather and cedar. The flavours of nut and butter emerge if the wine has undergone malolactic fermentation. Whereas, if the wine is developed by coming into contact with lees (dead yeast cells), there would be flavours similar to yeast, cream and biscuit.
Tertiary: Tertiary aromas are developed from the ageing process of wine. On getting oxidised by being in oak barrels for a long time, the wine may prominently contain the aromas of coffee, toffee, and chocolate along with those from the oak, including coconut. On the other hand, if the storage of wine is reductive in nature (protected from oxygen), one can expect flavours, like those of mushroom or vegetables to take the role.
The detection of wine flavours by taste or say, the palate, is dependent on components like sugar, acid and tannin, and they have major importance in tasting sessions. The consistency of these flavours affects the food pairings and even the wine’s basic style.
Sweetness: The sugar level decides the wine’s sweetness. Alcohol and fruit flavours may also contribute to the sweet side, just like how acidity can hide it. When there is a minimal amount of sweetness, the wine is identified or known as off-dry. Many Alsace and German Rieslings belong to this type. Wines ranging between medium-dry and medium-sweet carry a notable amount of sugar but are still away from being classed under dessert wines. In medium-dry wines, the acid covers up a major amount of sweetness like those in Vouvray Demisec, while in medium-sweet ones, the sweetness is more evident like in the German Riesling Kabinett. Another popular category is the dessert wine, with quintessential examples like Sauternes and Tokaji, which bear a more luscious consistency.
Acidity: The wine’s freshness is dependent on the level of acidity. Wines have acids that are malic, tartaric or lactic. The wineries may also add other odourless acids to bring about a pungent sharpness to the wine. However, just as how acidity masks the sweetness, the sugars hide the acid as well. Acid content makes the mouth prone to watering, and hence, testing for acid in wines should satisfy this very sign. Although all wines are acidic, it is said that white wines contain higher levels of acid when compared to red wines or rose wines.
Tannin: Wines with tannin include distinctive and flavourful tastes that are emitted from the grape skins, stems or seeds. Dry mouth is often caused by this element and is also responsible for the bitterness experienced at the back of the tongue while drinking wine. Tannin plays a great role in the texture and complexity of the wine, and they are mostly seen in red wine. Bitterness can occur in white wine if it has been intensively oaked. Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz are the best kinds of grapes to experience these flavours.
Body: This concept in wine tasting is all about a general impression of the wine as experienced by the taste buds. The golden rule here is that the amount of alcohol content is directly proportional to the amount of tannin. Higher levels of both alcohol and tannin lead to more intensity and fullness of flavour.
Finish: ‘Finish’ is meant to explain the accurate sensation that one gets right after gulping the wine. This is an important indicator of the wine’s quality, as the rule goes, the longer the sensation or impression lasts, the higher the quality will be. Wines with a ‘short finish’ will have their flavours vanished within seconds after tasting, while on the other hand, the impression left by a ‘high finish’ wine lasts for a whole minute or more.
Balance: The quality of a wine is highly dependent on its balance level. There should be pure equilibrium between the fruit, sugar, acidity and tannin levels. The extreme presence of fruit or sugar will make the wine thin, while too much acid or tannin will make it inconsistent. If there is no balance between all these elements, the wine is said to be of low quality. The above rules apply to primary, secondary and tertiary flavours equally.
Length: The longer the sensation lasts after tasting the wine, the better the quality is.
Concentration: Balance matters a lot. A high concentration of flavour does not mean that the wine is of good quality. Wines that are weak or diluted do not indicate high quality either. The goal is to find a balance between all components of the wine. On a general note, the concentration balance of flavours and consistency is a sign of good quality wine.

Does the whirring sound of the reel turn you on? Have you ever been so impressed with your catch that you badly felt the urge to document it? And have you ever wondered if there could be a single-window platform where you could list, store and share every detail of your catch? Yes to all? Then steady the line, it’s a strike!
Start with a Photo
Launch into documenting a fishing log by taking a snapshot of the catch. A close-up of the catch would help with the specifics of the fish. Including the names of the destination and fishing locale, along with the date and time of the photo, is strongly recommended.
English Name / Scientific Name / Local Name?
It is quite hard to recall the scientific name of the catch. Be not troubled if you confront issues regarding the same as sport fishing is not an academic pursuit. While a scientific name is universal, it would have many a local name among the natives of the area. Anglers are advised to follow either a common English name or local name while recording their catch.
Fishing Spot GPS: A data you need to handle with care
GPS pointers will attend to the anglers in case they wish to make comebacks to the fishing sites where they might have had a phenomenal catch or a disheartening miss. Fishing Memo is a user-oriented app that automatically tracks GPS coordinates of every catch and keeps it ready for your use. The users are recommended to demonstrate retention while sharing the GPS location with their friends as it may cause unwelcome tourist traffic.
Length & Weight of the Catch
Recording the weight and length of the catch is essential. The anglers are advised to bring a weight scale and a measuring tape if they wish to document the details of the fish they release back into the water.
Fishing Memo enables the anglers to document the various specifics of their fishing adventures. The key information to be counted during the documentation includes the details of the fishing destination, equipment, the fishing technique employed, etc.
