By visiting our website, booking a trip, applying for jobs, or by otherwise interacting with us, you consent to the information handling practices described in this Privacy Statement.
What information do we collect?
You can visit this website at any time without revealing your identity or any information about yourself. We collect information from you only when you register on the site, make a booking, enter a contest, respond to a survey or communication such as form submission, e-mail, or participate in another site feature.
Like many websites, we use “cookies” to enhance your experience and gather information about visitors and visits to our websites. Please refer to the Cookies section below for information about cookies and how we use them.
How we use your data
We do not sell or lease your personal information to third parties.
We may also share your data in order to comply with any valid legal processes or requests.
We may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our site visitors. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business.
You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser (like Internet Explorer, Fire Fox or Google Chrome) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you turn cookies off, you won’t have access to many features that make your site experience more efficient and some of our services will not function properly.
Land’escapes (landescapes.org) uses Google Analytics 4 and Google Signals to help analyze how users use the site. Google Analytics 4 is a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Signals is a feature of Google Analytics that allows for cross-device tracking. Google Analytics and Google Signals use “cookies,” which are small text files placed on your device, to collect standard internet log information and visitor behavior information in an anonymous form.
Google Signals allows us to understand how users interact with our Website across different devices and channels (such as email, social media, and display advertising). This allows us to provide a better user experience and more relevant content and advertising. Google Signals collects information about your interactions with our Website, including the pages you visit and the actions you take, as well as information about your device (such as device type, browser type and version, and operating system) and your demographic information (such as age range, gender, and interests) if you have allowed Google to collect this information from your Google Account. This information is collected using cookies and similar technologies.
By using the Website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above. You can opt-out of Google Signals by adjusting your Google Ad Settings or disabling cookies. For more information about Google Signals and how to opt-out, please see the Google Signals Help Center.
We may use the information collected through Google Analytics and Google Signals to improve our Website, analyze user behaviour, and deliver targeted advertising. We may also share this information with our third-party service providers and partners for the purposes of providing and improving our services, and for advertising and marketing purposes.
We use Facebook Pixel cookies to better understand your use of our website. Facebook Pixel collects information on user behaviour on our website, which includes how many times a user visits our website, what pages they visit, and where they were referred from. Facebook uses the data collected through cookies to track and examine the use of the website, to prepare reports on its activities, and share them with other Facebook services. Advertising identifiers for mobile devices (such as Android and iOS Advertising Identifiers) are also collected. Facebook may provide us with information associated with your Facebook account, such as your likes, location and age. Facebook may use the data collected on the websites to contextualize and personalize the ads on its own advertising network.

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.
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.
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.
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.
