1. Website Visitors

Like most website operators, URBAN NOMADS collects non-personally identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. URBAN NOMADS's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how URBAN NOMADS's visitors use its website. From time to time, URBAN NOMADS may release non-personally identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

URBAN NOMADS also collects potentially personally identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on www.urbannomads.io blog posts. URBAN NOMADS only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally identifying information as described below.

2. Personally Identifying Information

Certain visitors to URBAN NOMADS's websites choose to interact with URBAN NOMADS in ways that require URBAN NOMADS to gather personally identifying information. The amount and type of information that URBAN NOMADS gathers depend on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who leave a comment at www.urbannomads.io to provide a username and email address.

3. Security

The security of your Personal Information is important to us but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

4. Advertisements

Ads appearing on our website may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies.

This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by URBAN NOMADS and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

6. URBAN NOMADS uses Google AdWords for remarketing

URBAN NOMADS uses the remarketing services to advertise on third party websites (including Google) to previous visitors to our site.

This could be in the form of an advertisement on the Google search results page, or a site in the Google Display Network. Third-party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on someone's past visits. Of course, any data collected will be used in accordance with our own privacy policy and Google's privacy policy.
