Privacy Policy

On 25 May 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) come into force. These are lengthy and complicated and can be seen via the Information Comissioner’s Office website. In essence, these require organisations/companies to safeguard personal information and give customers/visitors to websites the option to opt out of having their personal information recorded or have any already held “forgotten”.

When you subscribe to the Where2walk newsletter the email address is automatically shared with Mailchimp, a platform that sends out all our mailings. It is never passed to any other 3rd party by Where2walk and Mailchimp have a very strict privacy policy. If you ever wish to opt out of the newsletter there is a clear unsubscribe button at the foot of each newsletter. We only ever use your email for the Where2walk regular newsletters.

For any other websites reached by links from where2walk.co.uk, see their own privacy policy.

All email communications with me remain confidential and are held on the server(s) owned by my host webhug and are not downloaded or printed off.

Nothing at all will be passed on to any third parties without your specific consent.

Cookies

With effect from 26 May 2012, a new EU law (e-Privacy Directive) came into force in the UK setting out requirements for the use of cookies by websites. The idea is to prevent information being stored on people’s computers, and used to recognise them without their knowledge and agreement.

The Information Commissioner’s Office has produced guidance and described cookies as:

“A cookie is a small text file that is downloaded onto ‘terminal equipment’ (eg a computer or smartphone) when the user accesses a website. It allows the website to recognise that user’s device and store some information about the user’s preferences or past actions.”
