Data Protection and Privacy Policy


Covid 19

We will keep your information as part of a track and trace system for 14 days after your trip whilst out and about touring the South of Scotland as a small private group or household bubble tour with a maximum of 4 people in a well ventilated vehicle.


This page explains our approach to privacy on our website and how it affects you.


Short version

These are just the key points. If you need details, keep reading.


We collect anonymous usage statistics about your visit, like which of our pages you viewed.


If you share personally identifiable information with us we take great care to keep it safe and we'll never share it with others without your express permission.


Facebook may know that you're visiting our website and target advertisements at you based on that.


If you consent, we may send you marketing emails, but you can stop that at anytime.




Google Analytics

We measure visitors to our website using Google Analytics. This records what pages you view within our site, how you arrived at our site and some basic information about your computer, such as which browser you are using and the size of your screen. All of that information is anonymous - so we don't know who you are; just that somebody visited our site.


The information we collect from analytics helps us understand what parts of our sites are doing well, how people arrive at our site and so on. Like most websites, we use this information to make our website better.


Any data collected by Google Analytics that is associated with cookies, user identifiers or advertising identifiers is retained for a period of 14 months.


You can learn more about Google Analytics or opt out if you wish.



Online payments

We use Stripe to process payments. By using a third party payment processor such as Stripe we avoid ever coming into contact with your sensitive payment information. When you provide payment details on our website they are sent to Stripe directly for processing. Less sensitive information, such as your name, email address, and address will be shared with us in order to processes your purchase.


You can learn more about Stripe and their approach to privacy.



If you provide us with your email address we may send you emails, either in reply to specific enquiries (such as one made using a contact form) or if you have opted in to our email newsletters. You have the ability to opt out of any of this communication at any time.


We will never provide your personal information or email address to any third parties except where they are specifically employed to help deliver our own services.


Our email marketing lists are also managed by our webmaster, Web Smart Media. Therefore, some personal information may be shared with them for marketing purposes.


Facebook Pixel

We use Facebook Pixel on our website. When you visit our website and take an action (like completing a purchase), the Facebook pixel is triggered and reports this action. This way, we know when a customer takes an action, and are able to reach that customer again through future Facebook ads.


To implement this, we include code provided by Facebook in our web pages. This code will know if you are logged into Facebook, which account you are logged in to, and will report back to Facebook on your actions on our website.


You can read more about Facebook Pixel here.



Like most websites, we use cookies.


Cookies are small pieces of data that websites store in their visitors' web browsers. Other technologies, including data we store on your web browser or device, identifiers associated with your device, and other software, are used for similar purposes. In this policy, we refer to all of these technologies as "cookies".


Cookies help to improve our services and give you a better experience. For example, they can show us which pages people visit most often, and which are not getting as much attention.


If you wish to block cookies you can do this in your browser settings; you can learn more about cookies and how to block them here.




Things you can do

You have legal control over your personal data, and so you may at any time:


get a copy of any personal data we hold about you


 have any incorrect, inaccurate or incomplete data corrected


ask that personal data be erased when it's no longer needed


ask that your data is not used for marketing purposes
