GDPR compliance

Hi 🙂

I’m happy that you visited my blog about travelling, according to the new law – GDPR – each site should notify users about which personal data it stores and give the option to opt-out.

Currently in the cookies this blog stores info only about language in which we should display content to you (as you may notice – you can switch between Ru and En languages). Beside it, there is some data for google analytics tracking – there is personal data, it used only to identify a duration of your session on the site.

You cannot register on the site, so we do not store any of your personal data (IP address, email, etc.).  We have analytics enabled on the blog, but there is no personal data, only about the blog itself (number of visitors, visited pages, etc.). On the blog enabled google analytics – on site enable IP anonymisation for it. If you don’t want us save any information about your current session – you can click the link Opt-out (it’ll be enabled for next 1 year, we set the special cookie – ‘disable-ga’, which will be used to disable google analytics for you). Analytics data used for historical research. The data won’t be shared with someone else.

We also removed the ability to join our email newsletter, so we do not store any personal data at all. If you want to follow updates on this site – you can go and join me on Facebook, Instagram or Pinterest (all links are available on the sidebar on the left side of the site).
