Last edited on May 18, 2018, to be GDPR compliant.

 

Cynthia Bil and Nicholas Danis Bertrand, who are the sole owners and operators of journalofnomads.com (from here on referred to as ‘Journal of Nomads’, ‘we’, ‘us’, ‘our’ and/or ‘ website’), care about the privacy of your data and are committed to protecting it when you visit our website.

 

This Privacy Policy explains what information we collect about you and why, what we do with that information, and how we handle that information. This privacy policy applies to the website of Journal of Nomads and all products and services offered by the company.

 

You can access Journal of Nomads and browse our website without disclosing any of your personal data. Journal of Nomads does not collect personal information about individuals, such as names, mailing and e-mail addresses, unless if the individual voluntarily and knowingly submit such information to us and he or she has agreed to the terms under which Journal of Nomads will use it. The user can always refuse to supply personal identification information, except that it may prevent him or her from engaging in certain website-related activities.

If you do not enter your information into any forms, we cannot and will not store any of your personal data.

 

We aspire to comply to the fullest extent possible with applicable data protection regulations, in particular the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (‘GDPR’) and ePrivacy Directive, where applicable.

 

 

What information do we collect?

Any blog comments, responses on Social Media platforms such as Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Youtube, and Twitter, or questions written directly to us may be used as blog material for our audience unless specifically requested otherwise. (Part of) these emails, questions or any other feedback may be used in newsletters and blog posts.

 

It is possible to view the Journal of Nomads website without providing any personal details. However, without giving consent you shall not continue to view our website.

 

We may also receive some information that you submit to any third party website or application that you access through the Service. Both Journal of Nomads and the owner or operator of that third party website will be the data controller in respect of any such information and you should check the privacy policy of that website to find out how they will use your personal information.

We will only use any information that we collect from you in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

 

 

When do we collect information?

We will collect information that you provide to us when you purchase any of our products and/or choose to fill out a form, such as when commenting on our website, reaching out to us via a contact form, signing up to our newsletter or anything else that requires you to physically write in your information. We will store this data securely.

We will only use any information that we collect from you in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

 

 

How do we use your information?

We may use the information we collect from you when you register for our newsletter, surf the website, respond to marketing communication, or use certain other site features in the following ways:

  • to improve our website in order to better serve you;
  • to personalize user’s experience and to allow us to provide you with information, products or services that you request from us or which we feel may interest you, where you have consented to be contacted for such purposes;
  • to administer a contest, promotion, survey or other site feature;
  • to carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between you and us;
  • for internal marketing and demographic studies to improve the products and services that we provide; and for security purposes.

 

We may also use your information to provide you with our email notifications, newsletters and other marketing communications that either you request from us or which you consent to by opting in when completing a registration form on the website.

 

You may opt out from receiving such marketing communications from us at any time by notifying us in writing, contacting us at hello@journalofnomads.com, or, alternatively, by following the procedure to ‘unsubscribe’ that is specified in the email that you receive.

 

 

Disclosure of your information

Journal of Nomads will not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to others. We do not automatically log personal data nor do we link information automatically logged by other means with personal data about specific individuals.

 

You should note that information posted on the public elements of this website may be visible to other users of the website throughout the world. You should therefore be careful when submitting information about yourself to the website.

 

We may use IP addresses to compile and provide aggregate statistics about our visitors, traffic patterns, and administer the site.

This statistical information may also be related to third parties, but these statistics will not include any personally identifying information, track user’s movement, or gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.

 

IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information. We only collect the personal data that you may volunteer while using our services. We do not collect information about our visitors from other sources, such as public records or bodies, or private organizations.

 

If you do not want to have your information used in this way, send an e-mail message containing your name and email address to hell@journalofnomads.com.

Journal of Nomads may release account information when such release is reasonably necessary to comply with the law; enforce the terms of any of our user agreements; protect the rights, property, and safety of Journal of Nomads, the users of its site, or others.
