In order to keep this place fun, exciting, and adventurous we’ve had to set up a few policies (some folks dressed in really fancy clothes assured us this is necessary).

Please carefully read through our Privacy Policy, Terms & Conditions, and Disclaimers below and be sure that you understand and agree with them.

Google Analytics enables us to collect, monitor and analyze website traffic information. Google will store this information. Traffic information is not collected from you after you leave our site.

We utilize Mailerlite to manage and distribute our email newsletter.

Webflow is the platform on which we’ve developed this website and is responsible for its hosting and operation.

Each third party provider’s use of your personal data is subject to their respective privacy policies. Anonymous website traffic data or email activity may be shared with our business partners or advertisers on an appropriate and aggregate basis.

How We Use Data

We may use your personal data in the following ways:

  • To operate and maintain our website.
  • To send you email newsletters. Each email will include an easy method to opt-out.
  • To respond to your questions and other communications.
  • To track and analyze statistics regarding website traffic, performance, and marketing.
  • To detect, investigate, and deter unauthorized or illegal activity.

Disclosing Personal Data

We keep your personal data confidential and will only disclose it to another party if we are required to do so by law or if necessary under the following conditions:

  • To protect our rights or property, or those of our users.
  • To protect the rights or personal safety of our users or the public.
  • To investigate or respond to any real or perceived violation of our Privacy Policy, Terms & Conditions or Disclaimer.

We will never sell your information to another party and any time information is shared we expect third parties to treat it with the same commitment to data security that we do.

Retaining Personal Data

Your personal data is stored internally by us or in a data management system. It will only be retained for as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose for which it was collected.

Cookies & Third Parties

We eat cookies just about every day. And we also store cookies. But now we’re talking about two different kinds of cookies. The non-edible ones are small data files on your browser. Generally these cookies are used to store user preferences or shopping cart status, and provide anonymous data to third parties like Google Analytics.

We may use both session cookies, which will expire when you close the browser, and persistent cookies, which stay on your browser until they’re deleted.

Cookies are meant to improve your browsing experience. If you prefer to disable cookies on this site the most effective way to do so is in your browser.

Access to Data

You have the right to view, edit or delete the personal data we’ve collected about you. If you wish to withdraw consent to us processing or storing your personal data, you may do so at any time by emailing us at hello@lorjorexplore.com. You may also contact us and request that we send you the personal data we have about you in a digital file.


We take personal data security very seriously and we strive to keep your data secure at all times. Please remember however, that no method of digital data transmission or storage is 100% secure at all times. We can’t guarantee any data’s absolute security, though we will use all reasonable means to protect it.

Child Privacy

We never knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 16. If you’re a parent or guardian and you believe we may have your child’s information in our database, please contact us immediately. We will use our best efforts to remove any such information from our records.

Our website and its content are directed to individuals who are at least 16 years old.

Terms & Conditions / Disclaimer

All the content you find here is for informational purposes. We created this website to inspire others to enjoy travel, get outdoors, simplify their lifestyles in (sometimes) unconventional ways and get the most out of life, but we’re not certified experts on any of these subjects. (There’s no such thing as Certified Campervan Builder.. is there?)

We’re just regular folks, like everyone else, and sometimes we make mistakes. So, please use common sense, especially when you’re outdoors or engaging in activities like hiking, camping, kayaking, riding a bike, driving down a washboard road.. you get the idea. We can’t be held responsible for your injury, loss, or damage to persons or property while you’re actively living life to the fullest in any manner we’ve recommended here on our website.

We also can’t guarantee that you’ll experience the same results when you visit a destination we’ve shared. We work really hard to provide detailed, accurate information and we’ll update it if we find any errors. Please understand that what you see here may not be 100% correct all the time. Things happen. Floods knock out bridges, transportation unions go on strike, pandemics pop up out of nowhere.. you’re using the information we provide at your own risk.

If you do find that something we’ve covered isn’t entirely accurate or up to date, please send us a quick message. Other readers of the blog will appreciate it!

That being said, we reserve the right to remove any comments viewed, at our discretion, to violate this policy without notice. Those found in repeat violation will be permanently blocked. We’re also not responsible or liable for any comments or content shared by others on this website.

We love reading your thoughts, suggestions, and questions and we read everything that you send us or post. We will always keep your information and identity confidential, but if we really love something you’ve sent us we may share it with others in a blog post or elsewhere on our website.
