We take your privacy seriously and take measures to provide all visitors and users of teachnomadic.com with a safe and secure environment.

Google Analytics

When someone visits teachnomadic.com we use a third-party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behavior patterns. We do this to track things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site and interactions with the site. This information is processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of visitors to our 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 recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. 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.

Website Comments

When someone visits teachnomadic.com, there may be an ability to submit comments on particular articles or pages.  When comments are submitted, you are entitled to use aliases or information that completely hides your identity. When a comment is submitted, the relevant details (name, email, website) that you provide are stored.  These details are stored so that we can display your comment back to you, and to anyone viewing the comment sections on the site. We do not verify information entered nor do we require verification. Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Media

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.

Mailing Lists

As part of the registration process for our e-newsletter, we collect personal information. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about stuff you’ve asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. We do not rent or trade email lists with other organizations, businesses or individuals.

We use a third-party provider, MailChimp to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. For more information, please see MailChimp privacy notice. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails.

Third Parties

There may be some circumstances where your IP address, geographic location, and other browser-related details may be shared with third-party companies.  We may share your above-mentioned data with following third-party companies from time to time (MailChimp and Membership Works).

Akismet: We collect information about visitors who comment on Sites that use our Akismet anti-spam service. The information we collect depends on how the User sets up Akismet for the Site, but typically includes the commenter’s IP address, user agent, referrer, and Site URL (along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself).

Access to Your Personal Information

You are entitled to view, amend, or delete the personal information that we hold.

Membership Works Plugin Policies

Erasing Personal Data – Right To Be Forgotten

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) gives members the right to request the erasure of their personal data from your membership database for specific reasons. We’ve developed a Anonymize/Erase Personal Data feature to help organizations comply with such requests.

When you anonymize an account, we will:

  • Erase all fields in the account and set the Account Name field to “Anonymized”
  • Erase all images uploaded for the account
  • Erase all secondary contacts for the account
  • Erase fields/questions in all linked event/form transactions and set the name of of the registration/checkout to “Anonymized”
  • Erase all the Timeline notes, conversations, scheduled/reminder emails, renewal notices, contact change entries
  • Erase all messages sent to the member
  • Erase all recommendations created/received by the member
  • Remove the email address for the member from your connected MailChimp lists

The following information will be retained which provides you with financial records for accounting purposes without retaining any personal information:

Timeline join date, billing updated, event/form checkout, invoices, payment entries
Tickets/items, amounts, credit card transaction ID in linked event/form transactions
Do note that if you had entered any personal information in the notes within the payment entries, or with any of the other retained Timeline entries, you will need to erase them manually as we cannot identify such data automatically.

Personal Data Stored With Third Parties

MembershipWorks will remove the email address from MailChimp on any connected lists, but cannot erase personal data from your payment gateway (Stripe, Paypal, Authorize.net, Braintree), accounting software (QuickBooks/Xero), or forums (Website Toolbox). Please request data controller remove all data from third parties by emailing jason[at]teachnomadic.com.

Anonymization Vs. Simply Deleting Account

Simply deleting an account does not erase personal data that is stored with linked event or form transactions. If you plan on deleting your account anyway , request that we anonymize an account first before deleting it.

Changes to Our Privacy Policy

We may make changes to our Privacy Policy in the future, however, the most current version of the policy will govern our processing of your personal data and will always be available at the following URL:

If we make a change to this policy that, in our sole discretion, is material, we will notify you by an update or email, where possible. By continuing to access or use our services, you agree to be bound by the terms of our Privacy Policy.
