What information we collect

We collect information from users who leave comments on on the site, or enquire about services via our contact and newsletter forms. Website usage information is collected using cookies, see cookies policy for more details.

How we use your information

We collect data about you in order to respond to comments you leave on the site, contact you regarding any services you have enquired about or marketing material you have opted to receive.

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 have opted to receive any marketing materials we will use this data to send you information regarding products and services that may interest you. You have the right to opt out of receiving marketing materials from Gillian’s Walks at any time by following the unsubscribe link contained within each email.

Who we share your information with

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

If you opt in to receiving our newsletter, the data you enter on the sign up form will be gathered by Mailerlite.

Clicking the Download button from any of the walking routes on this site from a mobile will re-direct you to the Visorando app via an affiliate link. If the app is not already installed on your device you will be invited to do so. Creating an account with Visorando is optional. Gillian’s Walks earns a small referral commission from each click through to the app by a mobile user. 

The Guided Walks and Outdoor Learning Courses listed on this site re-direct to Eventbrite for bookings.

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.

If you have left comments on this site, or contacted us via our Contact Form, 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.
