Your Consent

Advertising –There are no ads on www.secret-greece.com.

Newsletter – There is an option on SecretGreece to sign up for a newsletter and of course you can not be automatically signed up for a newsletter. I will need your emails in order to communicate with you and these are stored in my third party service provider who is currently MailPoet. I only use this for communication with yourself based on the reasons you signed up, and you are free to unsubscribe at any time – there is a link included in each email to do so.

Comments – When you leave a comment on SecretGreece, you will be asked for a name and email address. This is so you can be notified of any replies to your comment, and is a key usability feature. Your IP address will also be stored in order to combat spam. I believe this is covered by legitimate interest as the concept of communication, community, and commenting can not function with out this.

Cookies

The website needs to use cookies to function and as part of legitimate business operations. These can be first party cookies as well as third party cookies. These cookies contain no data that I can use to identify you, but are instead designed to help your browsing experience. Internet users have always had full control of the cookies on their computers, and you can access this through your browser settings. Let me highlight here that  I cannot track the cookies left on your computer or using them to identify you.

Analytics – This website uses Google analytics so that I can further improve my service and identify what do you like to read or not and improve my content.  I have set the ‘Anonymity’ feature for the analytics. This means that the last few digits of the IP address are masked from both myself and Google.

Links to external websites – SecretGreece links to external websites where I think they will provide extra value for you, or as an affiliate as part of my the travel blog. These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website. Each site you visit should have its own privacy statement, which I encourage you to read! I have no control over the data they monitor when you visit them. From my end, I will see that someone has clicked through, but I have no way of personally identifying who it was – As it should be!

There is only a one affiliate marketing vendor – Booking.com-  that this travel blog uses, to cover the cost of running the website. I am not responsible for the actions of our affiliate marketing. If you purchase a product or service based upon a link from our website, you must take action with that company to resolve any issues, not Secret Greece.
