What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of text sent to your browser when you access a website. Cookies help the website remember your visit, which makes your next visit more enjoyable and our blog more user-friendly. This is information such as the language you speak, safe search preferences, advertisements most relevant to you and other personal settings.

Cookies play an important role on the internet. Thanks to them, we can count how many visitors we get to our site, where they come from and what they are looking for here. Cookies help us to make a better blog for you every day.

And that’s why The Brazilian Guide uses cookies.

Understand the types of information we collect

Access statistics

We collect data about your visits to the blog. This includes (but is not limited to) your place of origin, date and time of visit, pages visited, time spent on each page of the site. These statistics are anonymous and we do not disclose personal data about our readers.

However, as all this data is relevant for monitoring the performance of the site, as well as for developing projects and partnerships, we may disclose collective data statistics, such as the total number of visits we receive per month, or the country where the largest base of our readers is located.

We will never disclose private access data. You can still choose not to provide us with this data. To do this, simply disable the acceptance of cookies in your browser, or use a service to make your visits anonymous.


The Brazilian Guide runs ads on the Google Adsense platform and Ezoic as one of the blog’s monetization strategies. Google uses cookies to choose which ads to serve you. The Brazilian Guide has no direct relationship with the sending of this data, but as data is collected here on the site, we feel obliged to inform you.

You can read more about Google’s Privacy Policy and also ask Google not to use cookies during your browsing.

E-mail and comments

Whenever you leave a comment here on the site, we ask you to enter a valid e-mail address. This information is stored and used to authenticate your comments in the future.

What does this mean? When you comment here on In Search of Tuning for the first time, your comment automatically goes to moderation. Once it has been approved by one of our authors, all your next comments will be approved directly, without the need for moderation.

When you ask to be notified of new comments on a post, we also store your e-mail address in our databases. When you comment, you can choose to save your name, e-mail address and website in cookies. This is for your convenience, so you don’t have to fill in your details again when you make another comment. These cookies last for one year.

With each comment, we collect the data shown in the comment form, as well as the visitor’s IP address and browser data, to help detect spam.

None of this information is public. We will never disclose your e-mail address or include you on any e-mail lists without your permission. And don’t worry: The Brazilian Guide does not SPAM.

You can find out more about our comments policy by reading the Term of use.


By continuing to browse The Brazilian Guide, you agree to cookies being sent to your web browser. Likewise, by choosing to block cookies, you are aware that this may impair the functioning of the site in your web browser and damage your browsing experience.

The information collected on the site is confidential. The Brazilian guide will never provide readers’ personal data to third parties, except when legally required to provide such data, or in the event of abuse, bad faith in the use of the system, aggression, threats and violations of the blog’s Policies.

How long we keep your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. We do this so that we can automatically recognize and approve any subsequent comments rather than retaining them for moderation.

For users who register on our site (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can view, edit or delete their personal information at any time (only their user name cannot be changed). Site administrators can also view and edit this information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site or have left comments, you can request an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we remove any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data that we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal or security purposes.
