PRIVACY POLICY

Adventure Junky Privacy Policy
Effective Date: May 25, 2018

This policy explains what information we collect when you use Adventure Junky’s sites, services, mobile applications, products, and content. It also has information about how we store, use, transfer, and delete that information. Our aim is not just to comply with privacy law. It’s to earn your trust.

Information We Collect & How We Use It

The information we collect from you is to make our product work as well as possible. In order to give you the best possible experience using Adventure Junky, we collect information from your interactions with our network. Some of this information, you actively tell us (such as your email address, which we use to track your account or communicate with you). Other information, we collect based on actions you take while using Adventure Junky, such as what your tell us are your adventure preference (your favoured activities and destinations), pages you access and your interactions with our product features (like adventures, follows, and bucketlisting). This information includes records of those interactions, your Internet Protocol address, information about your device (such as device or browser type), and referral information.

We use this information to:

  • provide, test, improve, promote and personalise Adventure Junky Services
  • fight spam and other forms of abuse
  • generate aggregate, non-identifying information about how people use Adventure Junky Services

Presently we do not authenticate with any third-party service (like Twitter, Facebook or Google) or collect, store, or update information associated with any third-party account, such as your lists of friends or followers. We will never publish through a third-party account without your permission.

Information Disclosure

Adventure Junky won’t transfer information about you to third parties for the purpose of providing or facilitating third-party advertising to you. We won’t sell information about you.

We may share your account information with third parties in some circumstances, including: (1) with your consent; (2) to a service provider or partner who meets our data protection standards; (3) with academic or non-profit researchers, with aggregation, anonymisation, or pseudonomisation; (4) when we have a good faith belief it is required by law, such as pursuant to a subpoena or other legal process; (5) when we have a good faith belief that doing so will help prevent imminent harm to someone.

If we are going to share your information in response to legal process, we’ll give you notice so you can challenge it (for example by seeking court intervention), unless we’re prohibited by law or believe doing so may endanger others. We will object to requests for information about users of our services that we believe are improper.

Data Storage

Adventure Junky uses third-party vendors and hosting partners, such as Amazon, for hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology we need to run Adventure Junky. We maintain two types of logs: server logs and event logs. By using Adventure Junky Services, you authorise Adventure Junky to transfer, store, and use your information in other country where we operate.

Third-Party Embeds

Some of the content that you see displayed on Adventure Junky is not hosted by Adventure Junky. These “embeds” are hosted by a third-party and embedded in Adventure Junky. For example: YouTube or Vimeo videos, or third party external websites. These files send data to the hosted site just as if you were visiting that site directly. Third-party embeds on Adventure Junky are not covered by this privacy policy. They are covered by the privacy policy of the third-party service.

Some embeds may ask you for personal information, such as your email address, through a form. We do our best to keep bad actors off of Adventure Junky. However, if you choose to submit your information to a third party this way, we don’t know what they may do with it. As explained above, their actions are not covered by this Privacy Policy. So, please be careful when you see embedded forms on Adventure Junky asking for your email address or any other personal information. Make sure you understand who you are submitting your information to and what they say they plan to do with it. 

Tracking & Cookies

We use browser cookies and similar technologies to recognise you when you return to our Services. We use them in various ways, for example to log you in, remember your preferences (such as default language), evaluate email effectiveness, allow our paywall to function, and personalise content and other information.

Adventure Junky doesn’t track you across the Internet. We track only your interactions within the Adventure Junky network. Some third-party services that we use to provide the Adventure Junky Service, such as Google Analytics, may place their own cookies in your browser. This Privacy Policy covers use of cookies by Adventure Junky only and not the use of cookies by third parties.

Modifying or Deleting Your Personal Information

If you have an Adventure Junky account, you can access or modify your personal information. You can delete your account by contacting support@adventurejunky.com

To protect information from accidental or malicious destruction, we may maintain residual copies for a brief time period. But, if you delete your account, your information and content will be unrecoverable after that time. Adventure Junky may preserve and maintain copies of your information when required to do so by law.

Data Security

We use encryption (HTTPS/TLS) to protect data transmitted to and from our site. However, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure, so we can’t guarantee security. You use the Service at your own risk, and you’re responsible for taking reasonable measures to secure your account.

Business Transfers

If we are involved in a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, reorganisation or sale of assets such that your information would be transferred or become subject to a different privacy policy, we’ll notify you in advance so you can opt out of any such new policy by deleting your account before transfer.

Email from Adventure Junky

Sometimes we’ll send you emails about your account, service changes or new policies. You can’t opt out of this type of “transactional” email (unless you delete your account). But, you can opt out of non-administrative emails such as newsletters, and activity notifications through the unsubscribe link in the email.

When your interact with an email sent from Adventure Junky (such as opening an email or clicking on a particular link in an email), we may receive information about that interaction. We won’t email you to ask for your password or other account information. If you receive such an email, please send it to us so we can investigate.

Changes to this Policy

Adventure Junky may periodically update this Policy. We’ll notify you about significant changes to it. The most current version of the policy will always be here.

Data Protection Statement for European Union Users

Description of Processing Activity

Adventure Junky collects and stores personal information about its users to customise their adventure experience and enable personalised distribution of content. It shares minimal data with its service providers.

Purposes of Processing

  • Provide, test, promote, and improve the services
  • Gather usage statistics of services
  • Provide customised experience
  • Publish and distribute user-generated content
  • Provide access to paid content
  • Transact trip bookings
  • Fight spam, fraud, and other abuse of services

Legal Bases

In order to provide the services, Adventure Junky collects and stores personal data about its users on the legal basis of consent given when you create an account and agree to the Privacy Policy. Adventure Junky also pursues its legitimate interests by collecting minimal data of logged out users to provide the services, as outlined above. Where Adventure Junky collects and stores personal data about non-users, it does so under performance of contract obligations with users who use the services to publish content on web sites hosted by Adventure Junky. In such cases, users authoring such content containing personal data of third parties are responsible for that content. Adventure Junky will consider related complaints in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation’s rights of the data subject, as well as rights of expression and access to information.

Public Nature of Personal Data

Logged-in users may choose to interact publicly with the Adventure Junky Services in the form of submitting their adventures, having them published, following other users, bucket listing adventures, sharing links on connected social media accounts, etc. Where such personal data may reveal special category protected data, it is processed on the basis that it is manifestly made public by the user. If you do not agree to this public usage, do not create an account or use these features of Adventure Junky Services.

Adventure Junky shares minimal personal data with third-party processors in order to provide the Services. These processors offer at least the same level of data protection as that set out in this statement. This includes the following categories of recipients:

  • Hosting, Storage, & Other Infrastructure
  • Security
  • Analytics
  • Communication & Support
  • Payment Processors

Search engines will index user profiles, public interactions, and any user-generated content. Users may also share links to your content on social media.

Payment Processors

Adventure Junky provides Services in conjunction with several payment processors, including: Stripe, Paypal, Google Play, and Apple Pay, through which users may pay for tours, gear, merchandise, premium services, etc or receive payment based on participation in our loyalty and reward programs. Those companies acting as payment processors may collect and store personal data related to your billing information and history in order to provide their services, and may collect and store personal data and business data to prevent fraud and other abuse.

When you delete your Adventure Junky account, Adventure Junky deletes your personal data as outlined in this document. However, to delete your payment or billing information, you will need to do so with your payment provider, as Adventure Junky only has minimal secure access to those records as needed to provide the services.

Embedded Content

Adventure Junky posts may contain third-party embeds, which may in some cases collect and store personal data. The use of personal data by embedded content providers is not covered by this statement, but by the privacy policies of those sites or services.

Existence of Automated Decision-making

Adventure Junky collects and stores personal data about its users to customise experience. This includes automated decision-making to promote content tailored to the preferences and interests indicated by the user, and to their browsing history and network interactions. Adventure Junky also filters content for the purposes of fighting and preventing spam, fraud, and other forms of abuse.

Potential Consequences of Processing

By creating an account on Adventure Junky, users may make certain personal data about themselves public and accessible to others on their profile and through network interactions. This may in some cases constitute special category protected data which is considered manifestly made public by the user.

Due to the public nature of information posted to Adventure Junky, it may be possible for third parties to derive identifying personal data from posts, whether by reading, inference, supplemental research, or automated extraction and analysis.

Users are free to use their real name and information, or a pseudonym of their choosing, for their account. Users may also choose to use the service without posting data or engaging in network interactions. However, if you do not agree with and accept the risks of such usage, you may not use the services.

Cross-border Transfers

Adventure Junky is hosted in the United States. By using Adventure Junky Services, you authorise Adventure Junky to transfer, store, and use your information in the United States and any other country where we operate. Where your data is disclosed to our processors, it is subject by contract to at least the same level of data protection as that set out in this statement.

Retention

Adventure Junky retains personal data associated with your account for the lifetime of your account. If you would like to delete your personal information, you can delete your account at any time by contacting support@adventurejunky.com. Deleted account profile pages will become unrecoverable in our system immediately. It may take several additional days for your personal data to be de-indexed from search engines, depending on those search engines’ practices, over which Adventure Junky may have limited or no control.

To delete your payment or billing information, you will need to do so with your payment provider, as Adventure Junky only has minimal secure access to those records as needed to provide the services.

Rights of Data Subjects

  • You may correct information associated with your account from the Settings page
  • You may object at any time to the use of your personal data by contacting support@adventurejunky.com. If your complaint relates to alleged misuse of your personal data by a third party, it may result in suspension of that post or account in keeping with relevant law, public interest, our contractual obligations, and the rights of expression and access to information of others.
  • You may at any time lodge a complaint regarding the processing of your personal data by Adventure Junky with the Supervisory Authority of your EU member state.
