PRIVACY POLICY

This privacy policy has been compiled to better serve those who are concerned with how their ‘Personally identifiable information’ (PII) is being used online. PII, as used in US privacy law and information security, is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context.

 

Please read our privacy policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how we collect, use, or otherwise handle your Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with our website.

What personal information do we collect from the people that visit our blog, website or app?

As a visitor, you do not have to submit any personal information in order to use the Website. The site collects only personally identifiable information that is specifically and voluntarily provided by visitors.

 

In some cases we ask you to provide your name and e-mail address, although providing either is optional.  We request your name to make it easier to carry on a conversation.  For this reason, we publish your name along with your comment.  We ask for your e-mail address so that we can contact you if necessary. It is our policy not to publish your e-mail address.

 

To protect your privacy, please do not include information (e.g., an e-mail address or phone number) in the text of your comment that identifies you.

Do we use ‘cookies’?

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, cookies may be used to  remember and process the items in your shopping cart. They are also used to help us understand your preferences based on previous or current site activity, which enables us to provide you with improved services. We also use cookies to help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future.

 

What sort of cookies do we use?
1. Functionality cookies – Cookies that improve the functionality of the site by storing your preferences.
2. Performance cookies – Cookies that help to improve the site performance and provide you with a better user experience.

Does anyone else use cookies on the site? / Third Party Cookies

We may also use or allow third parties to serve cookies.

For example, like many companies, we use Google Analytics to help us monitor site traffic. If we include content from other sites (like YouTube, Facebook, Twitter), you may be sent cookies from these sites. We don’t control them, and you might want to check these third-party sites for more information about their cookies and how to manage them.

Disclosure

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information unless we provide you with advance notice. This does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others’ rights, property, or safety.

 

If Continent Hop does work with partners for sponsorship and paid collaborations; these are disclosed within the editorial content. The articles may sometimes include affiliate links. This translates to no extra cost to you but I get a referral bonus if you purchase via the link. Simply put, it’s something similar to a discount code.

 

I would never share something I’m not passionate about. I choose to partner with selective companies and promote their businesses because they’re awesome!

 

Despite being compensated for my time and work in certain circumstances, I always give honest opinions about my experiences. Quality stands above all.
