This site only collects and retains as much information as is necessary to provide you with this service, and whenever possible I disassociate any personally identifiable information from the data collected and stored. This Privacy Policy explains AdventureTrend.com’s policy regarding the collection, use, disclosure, and transfer of certain information, including your personal information.

The following is the data collected at AdventureTrend.com and what happens to it.

This Privacy Policy applies to the website at https://adventuretrend.com. This Privacy Policy explains our principles when it comes to the collection, processing, and storage of your personal data.

We collect information visitors provide us.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on this site, this site automatically collects and stores the data shown in the comments form, along with the visitor’s digital IP address and browser user agent information. This helps with spam detection. If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely.

An anonymized digital string created from your email address (known as a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here. AdventureTrend.com does not include your Gravatar profile picture with your comment.

Media

This site does not accept images. However, if you choose to email me images or video, you may want to remove the embedded geolocation data (EXIF). Most modern mobile phones (cellphones) and cameras have a built-in GPS receiver that records and stores the location information within the photo’s data when a picture is taken. Anyone can then access and extract that location data from the images.

This site currently does not use a contact form as they have proven to be unreliable. An email address is provided. When you contact me by email, I will collect and retain any information you provide with your email indefinitely.
