Privacy Policy

Visit Dorset (visit-dorset.org.uk) is committed to safeguarding your data. This Privacy Policy outlines the types of personal information that is received and collected by our website, and how we use that information.

If you have any questions or requests concerning your personal information, please email us.

Registering Your Details
You are required to provide basic information such as a username and password in order to be able to post events or other listings on our website, including free postings. We only collect this information so that we can ensure you are a genuine user and, if appropriate, to meet our statutory financial recordkeeping requirements. Payment information (e.g. your credit/debit card number) is processed via a third-party payment provider: PayPal. We do not store any payment information ourselves. We will only email you if necessary to process and fulfil your order. We will not sell, loan or disclose any of your personal information to any third parties unless required to do so by law.

Google Analytics
Like many other websites, we make use of Google Analytics. The information collected may include your internet protocol (IP) address, type of browser, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and number of clicks. This information is not personally identifiable and is only used to analyse trends, administer the site, track users’ movements around the site, and gather demographic information. If you wish to opt out of providing Google Analytics data, Google has developed a browser add-on that is designed to be compatible with Chrome, Internet Explorer 11, Safari, Firefox and Opera. Please see Google for more information.

Advertising Partners
Our advertising partners include Google Adsense and Amazon. These third-party ad servers or ad networks use technology in the advertisements and links that appear on our website to send information directly to your browsers. They automatically receive your IP address when this occurs. Other technologies (such as cookies, JavaScript, or Web Beacons) may also be used by the third-party ad networks to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements and/or to personalise the advertising content that you see. We have no access to, or control over, these tracking technologies that are used by third-party advertisers. You should consult the respective privacy policies of these third-party ad servers for more detailed information on their practices as well as for instructions about how to opt-out of certain practices.

If you wish to disable cookies, you may do so through your individual browser options. More detailed information about cookie management with specific web browsers can be found at the browsers’ respective websites.

Our website also participates in the Amazon Europe S.à r.l. Associates Programme, an affiliate advertising programme designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.co.uk / Javari.co.uk / Amazon.de / Amazon.fr / Javari.fr / Amazon.it.

Security
We use a number of technologies and procedures to protect the data that you submit to us, such as firewalls and password protection. Whilst we use all reasonable measures to safeguard your data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data or its transmission. We do not retain any of your personal information longer than necessary to fulfil our statutory obligations.

Updates to our Privacy Policy
We may need to revise our Privacy Policy from time to time, and will do so by updating the version posted on our website. Our Privacy Policy was last updated in May 2018.
