What personal information do we collect and how is it used?
Information you voluntarily submit to the Website
We may collect personal information from you such as your name or email address. For example, you may voluntarily submit information to the Website by leaving a comment, suscribing to a newsletter, or submitting a contact form.
This information is used for internal record keeping, and to allow us to send you promotional emails about content you may find interesting. This information will not be shared with any third party without your express consent.
Information collected automatically
We automatically collect certain information about you and the device with which you access the Website. For example, when you use the Website, we will log your IP address, operating system type, browser type, referring website, pages you viewed, and the dates/times when you accessed the Website. We may also collect information about actions you take when using the Website, such as links clicked.
This Website collects information via Google Analytics. This service tracks Website usage, looking at details like page views, sources, link clicks and visitors, and provides information such as referring websites and other user actions. We use this data to assess the success and popularity of the content on the Website to inform future decisions and pieces of work. This information is used to run the Website and analyse Website performance. Google Analytics may capture your IP address, but no other personal information is captured by Google Analytics.
Information we collect from others
The Website utilises the Facebook commenting system, so if you choose to comment on a Website post, your profile picture may appear.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
We may log information using cookies, which are small data files stored on your browser by the Website. We may use both session cookies, which expire when you close your browser, and persistent cookies, which stay on your browser until deleted, to provide you with a more personalised experience on the Website.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Affiliate Programme Participation
The Website may engage in affiliate marketing, which is done by embedding tracking links into the Website. If you click on a link for an affiliate partnership, a cookie will be placed on your browser to track any sales for purposes of commissions.
On the Website, you may subscribe to our newsletter, which may be used for advertising purposes. All newsletters sent may contain tracking pixels. The pixel is embedded in emails and allows an analysis of the success of online marketing campaigns. Because of these tracking pixels, we may see if and when you open an email and which links within the email you click. Also, this allows the Website to adapt the content of future newsletters to the interests of the user. This behavior will not be passed on to third parties.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
What rights you have over your data
You are entitled to view, amend, or delete the personal information that we may hold. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes. If you decide you would like to do this, please email us at becanny (at) cannytravel (dot) com.
