We, at Trip & Trail do everything deemed necessary in order to protect the users' personal data. In order to do that, we collect the minimum amount of personal information that we need in order to make this website (https://www.tripandtrail.com) operational and the experience of using it as pleasant and efficient as possible.
What personal data we collect and for what reason
Only your e-mail is registered in order for the newsletter to be sent. The newsletters might contain news, recent post activity, contests and surveys. It might also contain ads with our products and services. Never a third party’s.
In order for spam to be minimized, we collect the name (or alias) and the e-mail of each user who wants to leave a comment. This data will never be used for any other reason except commenting. A link to a user’s website can be optionally inserted in order to be linked to his name (or alias).
User’s name (or alias) and e-mail are collected so that we can respond back to any submission made by the users. This data is never used for any other reason except for answering back.
