Who we are
Welcome to our blog, Apples and Gasoline. 🙂
We are a young couple from Romania and last summer we traveled from Romania to Morocco on our motorcycle. It was a wonderful experience, with a lot of stories to remember and of course, with amazing people.
We traveled in a fast mode and unfortunately, we didn’t have much time to document our trip on the Internet.
Long story short, we came to the conclusion that life is short and the things that matter to us aren’t an expensive car and a big house, so we started to travel full time.
After the adventure on the motorcycle, we continued our travel through SE Asia for 5 months.
Our website address is www.applesandgasoline.com.

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.

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.

How we protect your data
In order to protect your data, we use the SSL encryption system.

By activating SSL encryption, data you send cannot be read by third parties.
In the unfortunate case of fraud or computer attacks on electronic archives where your personal data is stored, we will notify you in accordance with the law within 72 hours of the security breach discovery, A.N.S.P.D.C.P. (The National Supervisory Authority for Personal Data Processing), the competent authority of the Romanian State authorized to manage such incidents.
What third parties we receive data from

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data
Except sending newsletters by email, we do not make decisions and/or do nothing automatically with our users data.
