Privacy policy

Your data

As a TravelMap user, you own your data, including itineraries, locations, photos, texts, etc. We do not use your photos for marketing purposes unless we have an agreement with you.

We do not sell your data, such as behaviors or locations, to any third-party businesses or advertisers.
Unlike other free platforms that collect and sell your data to advertisers, TravelMap operates as a business using a premium model. We only make money from paid accounts and printing books.

TravelMap and our suppliers respect and operate in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Public/private blog

By default, your blog is public. Meaning anyone on the internet can view it.
It'll be listed on the community section of our website and visible in the results of search engines like Google.

You can choose to make your blog private by protecting it with a password. Then, only those who have the password will be able to access your content.

Alternatively, you can keep your blog public and choose to remove it from our Community listing and block it from appearing in search engine results (see screenshot below).

Screenshot of the privacy settings offered to each user

If you remove your blog from search engines after it has already been added, it might take a while for your blog and its content to completely disappear from the results.
It also works the same way around: a newly created blog will take some time to be visible in search engine results.

TravelMap is not responsible if the content of your public blog is stolen by third parties. It is also not possible for us to prevent this. Therefore we ask visitors of TravelMap blogs to please respect the owners. Do not use their content without permission.
