If you are on this page means that you probably want to know more about what we do with your privacy when you visit Slowly Anywhere.
Don’t worry, we promise to respect every bit of your privacy; your data is safe with us! Anyway, if you want to know more, just keep reading 🙂
Slowly Anywhere is a website created by an Italian couple that has the aim to share travel tips, adventures and memories of a journey around the World.
Our website address is http://slowlyanywhere.com and all we want to do is share our stories with you.
Slowly Anywhere is a travel blog, not a multinational corporation. Most of the data that is collected on our website is automatic or done in the background. The only way we collect your information is if you manually enter your name and email into the site somewhere.
We are not in the business of taking information or data from our users. The only reason our website takes any data at all is to help us better serve you.
Slowly Anywhere will not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to others.
We do automatically collect certain information about you and the device with which you access the Website. For example, when you use the Website, we will log your IP address, operating system type, browser type, referring website, pages you viewed, and the dates/times when you accessed the Website. We may also collect information about actions you take when using the Website, such as links clicked.
We may use IP addresses to compile and provide aggregate statistics about our visitors, traffic patterns, and administer the site.
This statistical information may also be related to third parties, including but not limited to Google Analytics, Amazon Affiliate Program and other affiliate programs we are members of.
IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information. We collect only the personal data that you may volunteer while using our services. We do not collect information about our visitors from other sources, such as public records or bodies, or private organizations.
Slowly Anywhere may change this policy occasionally by updating this page. We recommend checking this page annually to see if you are satisfied with any changes made. This policy is effective from January 1, 2019.
The first question is: Do We Use ‘Cookies’? The answer is Yes.
Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser (if you allow) that enables the site’s or service provider’s systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information.
For instance, we use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyze data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.
We may use both session cookies, which expire when you close your browser, and persistent cookies, which stay on your browser until deleted, to provide you with a more personalized experience on the Website.
You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.
Slowly Anywhere (like the majority of travel blogs online today) has financial relationships with some of the brands and companies mentioned in this website.
We also use affiliate links to external websites where if used by the reader to purchase a service, product, accommodation, or any other item, we will receive a monetary reward at NO extra cost to the purchaser.
However we do not pass on your data to any other websites, and unless you physically enter your personal information onto the third party site, your data is not identifiable.
These cookies can not only help your user experience, but they also allow us to earn commission through our affiliate partners.
On the Website, you may subscribe to our newsletter, which may be used for advertising purposes. All newsletters sent may contain tracking pixels. The pixel is embedded in emails and allows an analysis of the success of online marketing campaigns.
Because of these tracking pixels, we may see if and when you open an email and which links within the email you click. Also, this allows the Website to adapt the content of future newsletters to the interests of the user. This behavior will not be passed on to third parties.
We currently use third party programs to manage our newsletter database and delivery. These companies have their own privacy policies and should be referred to on their individual websites if you have any concerns.

Third Party Use Of Personal Information
We may share your information with third parties when you explicitly authorize us to share your information.
Additionally, the Website may use third-party service providers to service various aspects of the Website. Each third-party service provider’s use of your personal information is dictated by their respective privacy policies.
