What data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Cookies

1. Necessary Cookies

We use cookies to record your preferences regarding cookies and to manage logins.  These cookies and the information they contain are not shared with any third party.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.  When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

More details on these cookies can be found on the WordPress website.  These cookies can be disabled using the cookie settings page, but this will affect website operation.

In addition, we use CloudFlare for content delivery.  CloudFlare insist on setting a so-called __cfduid cookie (there is no way to opt out) which they say contains no personally identifiable information, see here.

2. Third-Party Cookies

We care about your privacy and only non-personalised adverts are displayed i.e. they are tuned to the web site topics but do not use information about you personally.  Nevertheless, Google still need to set cookies for ad management, to combat fraud and abuse, for frequency capping etc.   See Google’s policy.

3. Facebook Like Button

The walk description pages include a Facebook Like button.  It’s nice for providing feedback on which walks are most popular and for sharing links, but its not essential to the operation of the web site.   This Like button sets cookies that can be used for tracking by Facebook, see here and also Facebook’s cookie policy.

Embedded content from other websites

Google maps are embedded in many of the pages on this website and Google can potentially record your viewing and interaction with these maps.   See Google’s privacy policy.

Who we share your data with

We do not share your data.

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.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive 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 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.
