WHO WE ARE
https://www.izzymatias.com is a personal blog where I share my opinions and thoughts about travel, self-care, personal development, and content creation. As of the moment, it is solely managed and run by me, Izzy Matias.
This blog is also open to advertisement placements. I collaborate with brands and accept sponsored blog and social media posts. I will always disclose in those posts if I am collaborating with a brand, doing a sponsored post or have been invited to an event or press trip.
These views evolve as I learn and do not reflect the views of my employer, those who I have worked with, or any organizations I am or have been a part of. Since this blog is open to comments, those who participate in the comments section are entitled to their own opinions, thus are liable and responsible for what they say.
All information I share in this blog is not to be treated as advice as I am not a professional. What works for me may not work for you. I’m merely sharing with you my experiences and what I’ve learned, but I make n guarantees that because you followed what I wrote, you will see the same results. You should do proper research and consult professionals to make the best decision. Should you follow what I wrote, you do so at your own risk.
In addition, what’s written and shared on this blog may not always be accurate and complete, but the content I put out is based on what I know.
At any time, I may change how I run my blog and the content I share here and on my various social media platforms. If you have any concerns, you may reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In compliance with current data privacy laws, we ensure to protect your privacy. We don’t ask you for personal information unless it is absolutely necessary. We don’t share your information with anyone except to comply with the law, create insights about our audience, and protect our rights. We don’t store your personal information, either, unless it is required of us.

ANALYTICS: WHO WE SHARE YOUR DATA WITH
HOW LONG WE RETAIN YOUR DATA
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
WHERE WE SEND YOUR DATA
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. We also use Google Analytics and AdSense to get website statistics on any viewers, posters, or commenters.
