PRIVACY:

  • Personal information about us is available on the internet, such as from social networks. I do not believe, that our personal information is protected anyway they say, they have set up procedures to ensure that our information is handled responsibly and in accordance with applicable data protection and privacy laws.
  • So they collect non-personally identifying information such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, location and the time of each visit; in order to better understand how you use the site.
  • Also your browser (if not told not to), gives out your IP address, which could identify you.
  • This Site may offer you the ability to interact with social plugins from social media sites, such as Facebook (facebook.com) and Twitter (twitter.com).
  • The social media sites may receive data when you visit a website that has plugins. In some cases, I may know that you clicked on a social plugin such as a Facebook Like button, or receive other information from the social media sites. Your use of social media plugins is subject to each social media site’s privacy policy, which will be different from this here.
  • When you share or recommend (with or without adding your own comments) any articles or content from the Services to your Facebook or Twitter profile, that action is governed by their respective Privacy Policies.
  • You are free to explore earthstoriez without providing any information about yourself. When you post a comment, you have to enter an email address. You don’t have to enter a valid one, though. I will get your name and email address when you voluntarily enter it.
  • I promise I will never share your email address and you can opt out at any time. No spam, ever.
  • I don’t want to invade anyone’s privacy. I do not try to create a mailing list for any reason at all — and certainly not so I can (directly or indirectly) sell you stuff.

ETHICS:

  • The opinions in this blog are my own.
  • Any form of partnership will only be undertaken with people and organizations, which adhere to this values:
    • Slow travel
    • Responsible and ethical travel
    • Ecology
    • Keeping business in the hands of the locals
    • Volunteering
  • I have posted “shared” and “curated” content and have tried to offer attribution in all cases where this was possible. If I have inadvertently posted anything which requires consent, please let me know and I will remove it immediately.
  • Guest posts are marked *

So, that’s it- simply.

I believe the future of the internet is one in which people build up networks of trusted sources, experts and others with whom they feel a connection and they can learn from each others. I value these communities very much and appreciate your trust.
Sincerely,

Gaia Grimm for earthstoriez
