This is going to be hella boring for you to read but all this legal jargon has to be here or else I’ll get sued, so here we go…
First up, copyright! When you were in school did you ever come up with a really great (like, so great!) idea for a project only for your frenemy to announce it to the teacher, taking all credit? Yeah, nobody likes to have their work stolen! So please don’t steal mine.
This site will occasionally use Stock Photos. These will be clearly marked and due credit given. If a photo is not marked as stock, then you can assume that all rights associated with that photo belong to me.
Except as permitted by the copyright law applicable to you, you may not reproduce or communicate any of the content on this website, including files downloadable from this website, without the permission of the copyright owner.
The owners of copyright in the content on this website may receive compensation for the use of their content by educational institutions and governments, including from licensing schemes managed by Copyright Agency.
If you do want to use any of the content featured on this website, just pop a message to email@example.com and we can discuss.
This site uses affiliate links. I mean, girl gotta eat, right?!
Affiliate links are links that direct to another Site that offers a service or product. If you purchase something through this link I will get a small commission at no extra cost to you, which will help go towards the running of this site. These links will always be disclosed.
As well as Affiliate links, occasionally (like, very occasionally) I will be offered a product or service to review in exchange for placement on this Site. This could be anything from a coffee cup to a day tour to a fully all-inclusive trip to the Bahamas. A gal can dream. Rest assured that if I ever receive anything for “free” (inverted commas because nothing in life is free, my friends), this will clearly be disclosed on the relevant article or page. I only work with brands and products that I am truly passionate about and would honestly recommend, so you can trust that I won’t ever try and sell you tat just to make a quick buck.
Here we go. This is the legal jargon part, so get your study cap on!
Who we are
Wales to Wherever (“us”, “we”, or “our”) operates the https://walestowherever.com website (the “Service”).
This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of personal data when you use our Service and the choices you have associated with that data.
We use your data to provide and improve the Service. By using the Service, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
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.
When commenting, your email address will not be made public and we will not use it to contact you in any way unless you opt in to receiving updates by email.
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.
Contact forms on this website work very much in the same way as Comments.
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.
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 edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
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.
We may use third-party Service Providers to monitor and analyse the use of our Service.
- Mailchimp – Mailchimp is a marketing automation platform and an email marketing service. We use this service to deliver email updates and newsletters to you, and in order to do so we store your name and email address. Your data will only be stored by Mailchimp when you have given us your express permission to do so. For more information on Mailchimp’s privacy practices, please visit the relevant web page: https://mailchimp.com/about/security/
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.
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.
Links to other sites
We have no control over and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites or services.
