Who are we?
Our website address is http://fearlessfemaletravels.com. Fearless Female Travels is a personal travel blog operated solely by Carly, a travel blogger from Canada.
What information do we collect? Why?
When visitors leave comments on the site through the default WordPress commenting system, we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. No spam, no problem.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you leave a comment using the WordPress comment option (not the Disqus comment box) on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
Embedded content from other websites
Blog posts and other features on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

This website uses Google Analytics to improve user experience. These settings have been configured to reflect Google’s recommendations for the collection and storage of minimal personal data. If you want to opt out of Google Analytics, please follow the directions provided by Google.
Who do we share the data with?
Occasionally, aggregated data (for example, total number of monthly blog visitors) may be shared with third parties such as tourism bureaus or tour providers. No information that identifies any individual will be shared.
How long do we keep your data?
If you leave a comment using the native WordPress tool, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
What rights do you have in relation to your data?
If you have left comments on this site, you can request a copy of those comments or you can ask to have them removed. You can view and delete any comments submitted through Disqus by accessing your Disqus profile.
You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
So what’s the big deal?
The overarching purpose of this blog has always been to inform and inspire, not to collect, share or profit (in any way) from user data. Between missed connections, broken air conditioners and ATM withdrawal fees, travel is stressful enough without also worrying about your personal data – trust that Fearless Female Travels collects the absolute bare minimum amount of data possible – really, it’s just comments that you choose to submit through Disqus and anonymous statistical data collected automatically by Google Analytics. That’s it!
