I’m Nathan Aguilera, author of the foodieflashpacker.com blog, and I respect your privacy.
The Foodie Flashpacker blog collects and uses several types of personal data. First, the site collects information from your web browser in data packets called cookies to provide targeted advertising (via automated decisions) that best fits you.
While advertisements help pay for the time and money I invest in the site, you, by no means, are required to provide personal data in the form of cookies to access or enjoy my site content. You can manage when and how your browser shares your personal information with foodieflashpacker.com and other sites in your browser settings.
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so the site can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
You can request this data by contacting me, the website’s data controller, @ [email protected]
Readers of the site are also welcome to join my email newsletter list by providing their email address. I use a third party service, MailChimp, to better manage and protect subscribers’ email addresses and other personal information. I never engage in unsolicited email correspondence or add anyone to my email list without their express consent (which is given when readers provide their email address for the purpose of joining the list). If you’d like to unsubscribe from my mailing list, you can unsubscribe from your email inbox or contact me directly.
My website may also contain affiliate marketing links. When you use these links, I get paid a commission on sales of those products or services we write about. As I state in many of my posts, my editorial content is not influenced by advertisers or affiliate partnerships. This disclosure is provided in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s “16 CFR § 255.5: Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
Among other programs, foodieflashpacker.com participates in Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com.
Finally, because this is an international travel blog and I write and work around the globe, your personal data may be transferred internationally when/if I access it within the parameters specified above.
