We only receive and store personal information you knowingly provide to us when you publish content (a comment, for example) on ModernTraveller.net.

When you visit ModernTraveller.net, the servers of our platform provider WordPress also automatically record information that your browser sends.

What type of information is collected?

Besides information you publicly provide in comments, data collected by WordPress might include information such as your computer’s IP address, browser type and version, operating system type and version, language preferences or the webpage you were visiting before you came here, which pages on this website you visit, the time spent on those pages, information you search for on this website, access times and dates, and other statistics.

Any of the information we collect from you may be used to:

  • personalise your experience;
  • improve our website;

Non-personal information collected is used only to identify potential cases of abuse and establish statistical information regarding website traffic and usage. This statistical information is not otherwise aggregated in such a way that would identify any particular user of the system.

We encourage parents and legal guardians to monitor their children’s Internet usage and to help enforce this policy by instructing their children never to provide personal information through our Website or Service without their permission.

What about cookies?

Our website uses “cookies” to help personalise your online experience.

A cookie is a text file placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

We do not directly use cookies to collect, store, or track information; however, our platform provider, WordPress, may collect, store, or track information for statistical purposes and to help operate our website.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the features of this website.

Advertisement

We do not directly display online advertisements on ModernTraveller.net.

We do not share personally identifiable information about individual customers with advertisers. Nor do we use aggregated or non-identifying information to deliver advertisements.

Our platform provider, WordPress, may from time to time display online advertisements, and it may share aggregated and non-identifying information about visitors to our website with advertisers. For more information, please review the privacy policy of WordPress itself.

Affiliates

Several affiliate links are used on our website to generate revenue. We do not directly share any personal and/or non-identifying information with our affiliate partners.

However, if you choose to click an affiliate link, that affiliate partner may collect non-identifying information about you, and your browsing and shopping habits. If you choose to make a purchase, that affiliate may collect and store your personal information.

We are not responsible for the information collected or stored by our affiliates; we encourage you to read the privacy statements of each and every website that may collect personal information.

Links to other websites

Our Website contains links to other websites that are not owned or controlled by us. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other websites or third parties.

We encourage you to be aware when you leave our website and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that may collect personal information.

Information security

Any information you provide is stored on WordPress servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorised access, use, or disclosure.

Reasonable administrative, technical, and physical safeguards are maintained in an effort to protect against unauthorised access, use, modification, and disclosure of personal information.

However, no data transmission over the Internet or a wireless network can be guaranteed. Therefore, you acknowledge that

  1. there are security and privacy limitations of the Internet which are beyond our control;
  2. the security, integrity, and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and our website cannot be guaranteed; and
  3. any such information and data may be viewed or tampered with in transit by a third party, despite best efforts.

Data breach

In the event we become aware that the security of the website has been compromised or users’ personal information has been disclosed to unrelated third parties as a result of external activity, including, but not limited to, security attacks or fraud, we reserve the right to take reasonably appropriate measures, including, but not limited to, investigation and reporting, as well as notification to and cooperation with law enforcement authorities.

In the event of a data breach, we will make reasonable efforts to notify affected individuals if we believe that there is a reasonable risk of harm to the user as a result of the breach or if notice is otherwise required by law. When we do we will post a notice on the website.

Legal disclosure

We will disclose any information we collect, use or receive if required or permitted by law, and when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request.

In the event we go through a business transition, such as a merger or acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, any personal data stored by us will likely be among the assets transferred.

Changes and amendments

We reserve the right to modify this privacy policy at any time, effective upon posting of an updated version of this privacy policy.

When we do we will revise the updated date at the bottom of this page. Continued use of the Website after any such changes shall constitute your consent to such changes.
