Privacy Policy


This page notifies you of policies regarding the collecting, using and disclosing of personal data when you use the website (‘the Service’) of This Is Southeast Asia (‘we’, ‘our’, ‘us’).

By using the Service, you consent to our Privacy Policy and agree to its terms.

In order to use certain features and functions within the Service you may sometimes be asked to provide personally identifiable information (Personal Data). This may include name, address, ZIP/postal code and email address. If you become a member or donate it may also include financial information.

We may also collect information on how the Service is accessed and used (Usage Data). This may include the Internet Protocol address of your computer, brower type, browser version, what pages of the Service you visit, when you visit, how much time you spend on the website and each page, plus unique device identifiers and diagnostic data.

We use cookies and similar tracking technologies, which monitor activity and hold information, on our Service. They are used to refine and improve our website and better serve our readers.

The Service contains links to third party websites. If you click on those links, you will leave the Service and enter a third-party site. We strongly advise that you review the Privacy Policy of each website you visit. This Is Southeast Asia does not control and takes no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of third-party websites or services.

If you interact with the Service via third-party social networking sites, information may also be collected. Please refer to the respective policies of those social networks.

This Is Southeast Asia may use your personal information to get in contact with you regarding your registration with us or any purchases that you make, or about special subscription offers, feedback, or other solicitations.

Any personally identifiable information obtained by This Is Southeast Asia might be combined with that of others and used in future marketing – for example to assess demographic information. Such information may be shared with third-party providers who assist This Is Southeast Asia with marketing, and with other marketing firms.

Google Analytics monitors website traffic. Google uses data it collects to track the use of our Service and sometimes to customise and personalise the ads in its own advertising service. If you do not want your activity on the Service to be available to Google Analytics, you can install the Google Analytics opt-out browser ad-on.

Your information, including Personal Data, may be moved to and saved on computers outside your own governmental jurisdiction, and thus subject to different data protection laws than those which apply in your own governmental jurisdiction. This Is Southeast Asia is hosted on servers in Australia.

This Is Southeast Asia will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure your data is treated securely as set out in this Privacy Policy, and that no transfer of Personal Data takes place without adequate safeguards including for that data’s security. Please note, however, that we are unable to guarantee security of data because no method of Internet transmission or electronic storage is fully-secure. We advise all users who register with us to log out after they are finished using the Service.

The Service is intended for an adult audience. This Is Southeast Asia does not knowingly collect any personal information from anyone under 18 years of age. If it is revealed to us that a user is under 18 years of age we will take action to remove the personal information of that user from our servers. If you are a parent or guardian and have become aware that we have collected Personal Data from children without verification of parental consent, please contact us.

This Privacy Policy may sometimes be updated. If that happens we will send an email notifying readers who register with us, and post news of the update prominently on this website.
