Our Rights Concerning Information Submitted For Publishing Purposes

If you (by email or through a form on our website) choose to submit information and/or referral information/weblinks with the intention of getting it published on our website (in a ‘guest post’ or ‘local tip’), you hereby accept that we reserve the right to keep it published on Travel In Culture only as long as we consider it relevant on/to our website. Travel In Culture only publishes the user submitted information and does not in any way validate or rate the user submitted information or tips. Readers will have to make their own validation, judgement and use general common sense.

Travel In Culture reserves the right to edit the phrasing of a travel tip such that it is aligned with the structure and phrasing of other travel tips on the website. Moreover, we may include affiliate links related to the tips and guest posts.

  • To provide and maintain the service
  • To notify you about changes to our service

  • To provide customer care and support
  • To provide analysis or valuable information so that we can improve the service
  • To monitor the usage of the service
  • To store user consents
  • To detect, prevent and address technical as well as security issues

Transfer Of Data

Your information, including personal data, may be transferred to, processed and maintained on computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ from those from your jurisdiction.

Your submission of information to Travel in Culture / our website presupposes that you agree to that transfer and consent to this Privacy Policy.

Travel In Culture will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy, and no transfer of your personal data will take place to an organisation or a country, unless there are adequate controls in place including the security of your personal data and other information.

  • To make our service possible. Therefore we may need to share your data with third parties. For example we share subscribers’ information with our mail sending service.

  

Security Of Data

The security of your data is important to us, but no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Nevertheless, we strive to work only with partners, that to the best of our knowledge each have high standards of user privacy and security, and use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal data.

Links To Other Sites

Our service may contain links to other sites that are not operated by us. If you click on a third-party link, you will be directed to that third party’s site. We strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy of every site you visit.

We have no control over and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third-party sites or services.

  

Disclosure of Sponsored Links, Affiliate Tracking & Commissions

Our website may contain advertisements, sponsored and affiliate links on some pages. These are typically served through our advertising or affiliate partners, for example Booking.com and Amazon Affiliates, or are self-served through our own means. We only use trusted advertising partners who, to the best of our knowledge, each have high standards of user privacy and security. However, we do not always control the actual advertisements displayed by our advertising or affiliate partners. If you click on links to their websites, our advertising and affiliate partners may collect data and use cookies. This is entirely out of our responsibility.

Clickable sponsored or affiliate links may be displayed as a website URL, an image, a form or as a titled text link.

Clicking on any advertisement, sponsored or affiliate link may track your actions by using a cookie saved to your device. Your actions are usually recorded as a referral from our website by this cookie. In this way we may earn a very small commission from the advertiser or advertising partner, at no cost to you, whether you make a purchase on their website or not.

Specifically, as an Amazon Associate we earn from qualifying purchases. As a booking.com affiliate partner, as an iVisa affiliate partner and as a World Nomads affiliate partner we earn from purchases through our affiliate links.

We use advertising and affiliate partners in these ways to help generate an income from the website, which allows us to continue our work and provide you with the best overall experience and valued information.

All views and opinions expressed on this website are entirely our own. We have no control over and assume no responsibility or guarantee for the services and products offered through affiliate or other links / descriptions. The services and products offered should therefore always be verified with the provider.

If you have any concerns about these things, we suggest you do not click on any advertisements or links (sponsored, affiliate or others) found throughout the website.

  

Email Newsletter Subscription

Users can subscribe to our email newsletter. Our newsletters comply with the GDPR and are sent through an email sending service provider such as the MailPoet sending service. Using an email sending service enables us to send out newsletters to a list of subscribers.

Newsletters sent may contain tracking pixels. These are embedded in emails and allow us to analyse the success rate of the emails. Through these tracking pixels we will know if and when you open an email and which links within the email you click. We use this information for analytical purposes and to improve and adapt the content of our newsletters. The sending service uses cookies only for operation. Except for the name and email address no identifiable information is tracked outside this website.

To send you emails, we use and store the name and email address you provide us with. Our site also logs the IP address you used when you signed up for the service to prevent abuse of the system. We will only send you emails if you have signed up to our newsletter and agreed to our Privacy Policy. You can at any time unsubscribe by using the link at the bottom of the newsletters.

  

Children’s Privacy

Our service does not address anyone under the age of 18 (‘children’).

We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 18. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your children have provided us with personal data, please contact us. If we become aware that we have collected personal data from children without parental consent, we take steps to remove that information from our servers.
