Privacy Policy

Well you’ve found yourself on the most boring page on the entire website. Sorry about that. But if you’ve clicked on the link, it probably means you are curious as to what we do with your privacy when you visit NOMADasaurus.

Don’t worry, we promise you we respect every bit of your privacy! In fact you can probably just ignore all this legal mumbo jumbo, and instead read this line: “Your data is safe with us.”

End of discussion, and now you can go read some inspirational stories to get you excited to go travelling! But just in case you want to doubly make sure that everything is kosher here, read on!

Last Edited on 13-06-2020, adhering to GDPR compliance and advertising policies.

Alesha Bradford and Jarryd Salem, who are the sole owners and operators of NOMADasaurus.com (from here on referred to as NOMADasaurus), are committed to protecting your privacy when you visit our Web site.

You can access NOMADasaurus and browse our site without disclosing any of your personal data. NOMADasaurus does not collect personal information about individuals, such as names and mailing or e-mail addresses, unless it is knowingly provided by the individual and he or she has agreed to the terms under which NOMADasaurus will use it.

If you do not enter your information into any forms, we cannot and will not store any of your personal data. We operate on a ‘data minimisation’ system at all times.

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.

However if you choose to fill out a form, such as when commenting on our website, reaching out to us via a contact form, signing up for our awesome newsletter or anything else that requires you to physically write in your information, we collect the data you surrender and store it securely.

Disclosure Of Information

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

We do automatically collect certain information about you and the device with which you access the Website. For example, when you use the Website, we will log your IP address, operating system type, browser type, referring website, pages you viewed, and the dates/times when you accessed the Website. We may also collect information about actions you take when using the Website, such as links clicked.

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, including but not limited to Google Analytics, Google Webmaster Console, ConvertKit, Amazon Affiliate Program and other affiliate programs we are members of.

IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information. We collect only 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 organisations.

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 hello (at) nomadasaurus (dot) com.

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

Our Commitment To Children’s Privacy

Protecting the privacy of the young children is important to us. For that reason, NOMADasaurus does not collect or maintain information on our site from those we actually know are under 18, and no part of our site is structured to attract anyone under 18.

Third Party Disclosure

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information unless we provide you with advance notice.
 
This does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential.
 
We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others’ rights, property, or safety.

Third Party Links

Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third party products or services on our website. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies.
 
We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.

Affiliate Disclaimer

NOMADasaurus has financial relationships with some of the brands and companies mentioned in this website. We also use affiliate links to external websites where if used by the reader to purchase a service, product, accommodation, or any other item, we will receive a monetary reward at no extra cost to the purchaser.

These affiliate links often use cookies and special referral codes to track the site where a user has come from, and our partners use this referral traffic to monitor any purchases you make on their site.

However we do not pass on your data to any other websites, and unless you physically enter your personal information onto the third party site, your data is not identifiable.

NOMADasaurus is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and links to Amazon.com.  As part of this Amazon Associates program, the Website will post customised links, provided by Amazon, to track the referrals to their website. This program utilises cookies to track visits for the purposes of assigning commission on these sales.

For instance, we use cookies to help us remember and process the items in your shopping cart, if we ever have a shopping cart feature on our site.
 
They are also used to help us understand your preferences based on previous or current site activity, which enables us to provide you with improved services. We also use cookies to help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future.
 
We may use both session cookies, which expire when you close your browser, and persistent cookies, which stay on your browser until deleted, to provide you with a more personalised experience on the Website.

Third Party Use Of Personal Information

We may share your information with third parties when you explicitly authorise us to share your information.

Additionally, the Website may use third-party service providers to service various aspects of the Website. Each third-party service provider’s use of your personal information is dictated by their respective privacy policies.

The Website currently uses the following third-party service providers:

Google Analytics – this service tracks Website usage and provides information such as referring websites and user actions on the Website. Google Analytics may capture your IP address, but no other personal information is captured by Google Analytics.

At this time, your personal information is not shared with any other third-party applications. This list may be amended from time to time in the Website’s sole discretion.

Except when required by law, we will not sell, distribute, or reveal your email addresses or other personal information without your consent; however, we may disclose or transfer personal information collected through the Website to third parties who acquire all or a portion of our business, which may be the result of a merger, consolidation, or purchase of all or a portion of our assets, or in connection with any bankruptcy or reorganization proceeding brought by or against us.

Anonymous Data

From time to time, we may use anonymous data, which does not identify you alone, or when combined with data from other parties.

For more information about cookies and how to disable them, you can consult the information at www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/.

Without cookies you may not be able to take full advantage of the Website content and features. Please note that rejecting cookies does not mean that you will no longer see ads when you visit our Site.
