When visitors leave comments on the site 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.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website could download and extract any location data from images on the website.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles 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.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profiles. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
We will retain your personal data only for as long as necessary for the purposes it was retained, such as to enable you to use the platform and in order to develop and improve the website.
What rights you have over your data
You can request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. If you have an account on this site or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
How we use your data
We maintain appropriate administrative and technical safeguards designed to protect the personal data you provide against accidental, unlawful, or unauthorized destruction, loss, disclosure, or use. However, it is not possible to absolutely guarantee the security of information transmitted online, and you assume some risk with regard to the security of information you provide online through any website, including this platform.
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email. We do NOT collect any sensitive data about you and do not share any data pertaining to your use of NetNomads with third parties. However, you agree that any information shared by you or entered onto the platform in order to subscribe and create a profile is public knowledge.
