Digital Nomad Soul follows a standard procedure of using log files. These files log visitors when they visit websites. All hosting companies do this and a part of hosting services’ analytics. The information collected by log files include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date and time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. These are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable. The purpose of the information is for analyzing trends, administering the site, tracking users’ movement on the website, and gathering demographic information.
In addition, Digital Nomad Soul uses third party services such as Google Analytics that collect, monitor and analyze this type of information in order to increase our Service’s functionality. These third-party service providers have their own privacy policies addressing how they use such information.
They automatically receive your IP address when this occurs. These technologies are used to measure the effectiveness of their advertising campaigns and/or to personalize the advertising content that you see on websites that you visit.

Use of Web Beacons and Pixels
Digital Nomad Soul may, at times, use third-party Data Processors (for example the Facebook Pixel) to automatically link your personal information with your user profiles on those sites. As a Data Controller Digital Nomad Soul will not have access to your personal information but may utilize their respective advertising platforms to distribute content to you in the future.
Additionally, as you navigate through and interact with Digital Nomad Soul, advertisers may use automatic data collection technologies to collect:
(a) Information about visits to Digital Nomad Soul, including traffic patterns, geographic information, and other data logs.
(b) Data about your computer and internet connection (including information about your browser, operating system (OS), or IP address).
(c) Data about your interactions with email messages, such as when you click on a link or whether the messages are opened or forwarded.
(d) The demographic information that may contain personally identifiable information.
Digital Nomad Soul may aggregate automatically-collected data with personal information that is collected in other ways (such as data collected during an email opt-in) to further enhance your user experience.

Google Web Fonts
Digital Nomad Soul uses web fonts provided by Google. This is done in the interest of a uniform and attractive presentation of this website.
How does it work? When you open a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your cache to display fonts correctly. When you open a page of our website that contains a social plugin, your browser makes a direct connection with Google servers. Google thus becomes aware that our web page was accessed via your IP address.
On Digital Nomad Soul, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to a newsletter. The input mask used for this purpose determines what personal data are transmitted, as well as when the newsletter is ordered.
The newsletter may only be received by you if (1) you have a valid e-mail address and (2) you register for the newsletter shipping. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address registered for the first time for newsletter shipping, for legal reasons, in the double-opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail is used to prove whether the owner of the e-mail address is authorized to receive the newsletter.
During the registration for the newsletter, we also store your IP address, as well as the date and time of the registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address at a later date, and it therefore serves the aim of the legal protection.
The personal data collected as part of a registration for the newsletter will only be used to send a newsletter. There will be no transfer of personal data collected by the newsletter service to third parties. The subscription to the newsletter may be terminated by you at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which you have given for shipping the newsletter, may be revoked at any time. For the purpose of the revocation of consent, a corresponding link is found in each newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time directly by contacting me via the contact form.
The usage of these data is based on Art. 6 EU-GPDPR. The newsletter provider is MailChimp, The Rocket Science Group LLC.
The newsletter of Digital Nomad Soul contains so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in such e-mails, which are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, Digital Nomad Soul may see if and when an e-mail was opened, and which links in the e-mail were called up.
Such personal data collected in the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and analyzed in order to optimize the shipping of the newsletter, as well as to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to your interests. These personal data will not be passed on to third parties. You are at any time entitled to revoke the respective separate declaration of consent issued by means of the double-opt-in procedure.
If you contact me by e-mail or via the contact form, your personal data transmitted are automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis are solely stored for the purpose of processing your request or contacting you. There is no transfer of this personal data to third parties.
If you leave a comment on any of my blog posts, these comments, as well as information on the date of the commentary and on you (pseudonym) are published and stored. In addition, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) is also logged. This storage of the IP address takes place for security reasons, and in case you violate the rights of third parties, or posts illegal content through a given comment. This collected personal data will not be passed to third parties unless such a transfer is required by law.
Digital Nomad Soul is compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation “GDPR”.
