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.

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: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


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.

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 visit our login page, 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.

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.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


Who we share your data with:

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.

How We Protect Your Data:

We are committed to protecting your personal information and have implemented a variety of security measures to ensure the safety of your data. Our website uses encrypted protocols for all online transactions, secure databases for storing sensitive information, and regular cybersecurity assessments to identify and mitigate vulnerabilities. Additionally, access to personal data is strictly limited to authorized personnel who are required to adhere to our confidentiality policies.

Data Breach Procedures:

In the event of a data breach, we have established procedures to minimize damage and protect our stakeholders. This includes immediate identification and isolation of the breach, communication with affected individuals and regulatory authorities as required, and a thorough investigation to prevent future occurrences. We are committed to transparency and will provide timely updates during the resolution process.

Third Parties We Receive Data From:

Our operations may involve sharing data with third-party service providers who assist us with various functions, including website hosting, data analysis, payment processing, and marketing assistance. We ensure that these third parties are reputable and uphold similar standards of data protection as we do. We also require them to agree to use the data exclusively for the purposes for which they have been engaged.

Automated Decision Making and Profiling:

We do not use automated decision-making processes, including profiling, that would have a legal or similarly significant effect on you based solely on your personal data without human intervention. If in the future we implement any such processes, users will be notified, and where necessary, consent will be obtained.

Industry Regulatory Disclosure Requirements:

As a tour operator, we comply with local and international travel industry regulations, including data protection laws such as GDPR for our European clients. We are transparent about any regulatory disclosures we must make, including reporting to governmental bodies and industry-specific organizations as required.
