Privacy Policy

Website Privacy Policy

We at http://www.rvbloggins.com (“RVBloggins”) take your privacy seriously and are committed to safeguarding your privacy online.

Because we publish articles and photographs that describe the actions or behaviours of living persons, we – by policy and practice – do not identify persons by name and do not knowingly publish photographs that a stranger could identify as a particular person.  That is not to say that a family member or close family friend could not identify a particular individual in a photograph taken (for example only) some thirty years ago nor that the same person could not identify the persons described in a post. Nor do we have the ability to prevent any technological methods (for example face-recognition software) of associating descriptions or likenesses on our website with descriptions or likenesses on any other website. We exercise our control to the extent that we are reasonably able.

Because you may comment on this site, you should act in the knowledge that your comments when published are viewable by the public.  We encourage you to use a pseudonym when commenting.  If you comment using your real name and in your comment make reference to an article or photograph that we have published, we can take no responsibility for your making your identity known.

Because we do gather certain types of information from visitors to our sites, we have developed this privacy statement to help you understand the terms and conditions surrounding the collection and use of that information. This statement discloses the types of information we gather, how it is used, and how you can gain access to and edit any data that we’ve collected about you at any time.
