Privacy Policy

This privacy policy statement is to comply with international privacy laws and standards. RainforestJournal.com places a high priority on protecting your privacy. This privacy policy was created in order to demonstrate this website’s firm commitment to the privacy of our website users. This policy explains what types of information is collected by RainforestJournal.com and how this information is used.

Log Files

Like most standard Web site servers we use log files. This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information.

What Personally Identifiable Information is collected and how it is used

Rest assured your email and personal details are never ever sold, rented, or shared with any other third party. When you voluntarily provide us with contact information (such as name and e-mail address), we may use your information for communicating back with you, such as answering your queries. We may use your information to track visitor usage of our website. This lets us see which of our features are the most popular so we can better serve our users’ needs. It also lets us provide (only) aggregate data about our traffic (not identifying you personally, but only showing how many visitors used which features, for example) to outside parties.

You may always “opt out,” either now or at any time in the future, if you do not wish to receive any communication from us, by letting us know that you do not wish to be contacted. At any rate, we will never initiate any unsolicited first contact with you.

Cookies and/or web beacons

Cookies are small files that a website may place on your hard drive to allow a website to identify you. The use of cookies is a common practice on almost all websites, by default. For example, if you allow a website to remember your login name or password, the website places a cookie on your computer. Cookies cannot read any other information on your hard drive. We may place cookies on your computer to allow us to identify you. We may use cookies to measure web traffic, to offer you certain services, and to customize your visit. If you do not wish to receive cookies or would like to be notified when a website is placing a cookie on your system, your Internet browser may allow you to do so.

A web beacon is a transparent image file used to monitor your journey around a single website or collection of sites. They are also referred to as web bugs and are commonly used by sites that hire third-party services to monitor traffic. They may be used in association with cookies to understand how visitors interact with the pages and content on the pages of a web site.

These third-party ad servers or ad networks use technology to send, directly to your browser, any advertisements and/or links that appear on this Web site. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. They may also use other technologies (such as cookies, JavaScript, or Web Beacons) to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements and/or links, and to personalize any advertising content you see.

You should consult the respective privacy policies of these third-party ad servers or ad networks for more information on their practices and for instructions on how to opt-out of certain practices. This Web Site’s privacy policy does not apply to, and we cannot control the activities of, such other advertisers or external websites.

Browsers can be set to accept or reject cookies or notify you when a cookie is being sent. Privacy software can be used to override web beacons. Taking either of these actions shouldn’t cause a problem with our site, should you so choose.

External Links

RainforestJournal includes links to external websites. These links do not fall under the RainforestJournal domain, and we are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of external websites. Your use of any linked website is solely at your own risk.

Controlling your personal information

Under per GDPR law (which governs people from the EU), you may choose to restrict the collection or use of your personal information in the following ways: Whenever you are asked to fill in a form on a website or if you wish to make a comment on a post, you will always be given the opportunity to unsubscribe or be removed from any mailings or marketing (if any). IF you have previously agreed to us using your personal information for whatever purposes (although this is unlikely for a blog like this), you may change your mind at any time by emailing us at contact@rainforestjournal.com.


We may amend this privacy policy from time to time; please review it periodically. We maintain the option to modify this privacy at any time. If users have any questions or suggestions regarding our privacy policy, please contact us at our contact page.
