Privacy Policy

Here at Megbeth Travels we value our readers’ safety and privacy. As a blogger from the UK, I comply with regulations set out by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This means I must follow the Data Protection Principles as set out by the Data Protection Act 2018. To find out your rights under the Data Protection Act, please click here. Below are the kinds of information we store at Megbeth Travels currently:

  • Necessary data such as your name and e-mail address are stored when you choose to follow this blog.
  • Necessary data such as your name and e-mail address are stored when you choose to subscribe to the mailing list.
  • You choose to leave your name, e-mail address, website, and possibly social media links when you comment on megbeth.travel.blog.

Your data is stored within WordPress itself in a responsible and secure way and protected with comprehensive internet security. Your data is never shared with any third party. If you unsubscribe or unfollow megbeth.travel.blog, your data is no longer accessible to me. However, if you choose to leave a comment on this site you freely provide information that may be accessible to anyone who views this site. You can remove such comments at any time and you retain the right to erasure. If you wish to contact me about the Privacy Policy you can do so at the bottom of this page.

As of 09/08/2020, my site is tracked by Google Analytics so I can receive important viewing data and insights. No data (except that of the website) is shared by myself with Google Analytics or any third party. However, Google Analytics may monitor your behaviour (anonymously) on this website. For example, Google Analytics may:

  • Monitor how many times a viewer has visited the website
  • Monitor how many pages or posts a viewer has clicked on during a session
  • Monitor how long a viewer stays on the website (or any given post or page)

This information is collected in order for me to see how well I am keeping the attention of my readers.

As of 09/08/2020, advertisements via WordPress WordAds have been activated on megbeth.travel.blog. The advertisements are chosen by WordPress’ team of engineers, and not myself. However, the site may know your viewing preferences due to essential Cookies (see next section below). If you view/click on any ad or make a purchase, I may receive a small commission.

As a user of WordPress, this site uses Cookies automatically. A widget* is currently installed to make you aware of this fact as soon as you access megbeth.travel.blog for the first time. By continuing to view this blog, or clicking the ‘Close and Accept’ button, you agree to the use of Cookies. The widget banner will disappear after 10 seconds – this also equates to your consent. After this point, your Cookie Consent is maintained for a further 365 days.

  • The data collected by Cookies is two-fold: a unique ID for each user, and a site name.
  • Cookies remember you and your preferences based on the information above and which site you arrived at this site from.

The data collected by these Cookies is not accessible to me and therefore it cannot be passed to any third party by myself. Cookies are typically used by sites to tailor content, such as ads, to yourself based on your preferences.

*I cannot be held responsible for the functionality of this widget as this relies on the WordPress company – though I will do everything conceivably in my power to ensure that it runs effectively. If the widget is not working at any time, please assume that normal rules apply and your consent will be gained when you decide to continue viewing this blog.

  • Guest posters may occasionally unknowingly leave location data in photos provided for any guest post.

It is the guest posters’ responsibility to ensure that any sensitive location data is removed from the image before supplying to Megbeth Travels. However, if this is made known to me I will of course be willing to switch any such photos out.


Last updated: 09/08/2020. These policies will be reviewed again when/if there is any substantial change to the way the blog is run. Therefore the Privacy Policy is liable to change at any time. Please check the ‘Last Updated’ date at the beginning of this paragraph.
