Who we are
Hi, my name is Lucie Charpentier, the creator, writer and editor of The Mindful Traveller – a blog about sustainable travel and ecotourism.
Our website address is www.exploremindfully.com.
For any questions about this blog, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How we collect your data
We collect personal data from you in different ways, including but not limited to:
1- Newsletter subscription: your first name and email address.
2- Blog post comments: the data shown in the comments form and the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
However, you may visit this blog anonymously. We will only collect personal identification information if you voluntarily submit such information to us.
Our blog may use “cookies” to enhance the user experience.
For instance, if you leave a comment on our blog, you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will set up several cookies to save your login information and screen display choices. Login cookies last two days, and screen options cookies last a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login cookies will persist for two weeks, and if you log out of your account, these cookies will be removed.
In addition, our blog uses the Emerald software tool, an analytical script helping us get insight on web recourse indicators and monetisation optimisation. Read their terms here.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, maps, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves the same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
How we use your data
- To improve your user experience on the blog
- To reply to your comments
- To send you occasional emails
If you wish to subscribe to the newsletter, you will receive emails that may include news, updates, related articles, etc. If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, we will include unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment on this blog, the comment and its metadata will be retained indefinitely. It is how we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users who register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profiles. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights do you have over your data
If you have an account on this blog 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. It does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
We use Google Analytics to track and review data and traffic on The Mindful Traveller. Google Analytics help us understand how you use this blog and how we can improve your experience and create better content.
You may find on The Mindful Traveller links that lead to other websites. Please note that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of these websites, and we do not control the content or links that appear on these websites.
