What personal data we collect and why we collect it:
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
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.
We collect your name and email address when you sign up for our email and enewsletter list or for a product or service. We use a third party vendor, Aweber, to manage our email lists and transmission and we protect the privacy of our subscribers. If you fill out a contact form or fill out an application, we might also collect some additional information from you.
In addition to the fields into which you input your information or other data, we might collect your IP address for geolocation. We do this mostly to know what country or part of the world our traffic is coming from. This does not tell us your home address. Any IP address or geolocation information is tied only to the information you submitted on the form, not to a particular username or anything else. We keep the information in these forms indefinitely.
We do not use IP addresses or geolocation information for marketing purposes.
We may use the information you send us via contact forms for marketing purposes.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to save your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
Third Party Disclosure
As a general rule, we do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personal information unless we provide users with advance notice.This does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or serving our users (such as, for example, Google Analytics, our web host and Aweber), so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release information when its release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others’ rights, property or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
Like many other Web sites, Urbannaturale.com makes use of log files. These files merely log visitors to the site – usually a standard procedure for hosting companies and a part of hosting services’ analytics. The information inside the log files includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. This information is used to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement around the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses and other such information are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year.

Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
We use a tool called “Google Analytics” to collect information about how you use this site. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit this site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to this site. We use the information we get from Google Analytics only to improve this site. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this site, rather than your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information.
Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit this site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google.
You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to this site by disabling cookies on your browser.
We use tracking code from these and other 3rd party sources to help us track visitors to our site, follow traffic sources and patterns, and to see if our ads are working. We also use this tracking data so we can advertise to you after you’ve left our site.
