Search Engine

Data from the search function on bctouring.co.uk is logged to help us improve our website and search functionality. The search is made possible by a piece of hardware (a search ‘appliance’) supplied by Google that is plugged into our server and continuously indexes the content on our site. All search requests are handled by the appliance and the information is not passed on to any third party, including Google.

E-newsletter

We use a third party provider, Survey Monkey, to deliver our monthly e-newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies provided as part of the Survey Monkey service. For more information, please visit Survey Monkey’s Privacy Policy.

Hosting

We use a third party service, Fastnet, to host our website, using a website template from WordPress.com, which is run by Automattic Inc. We use a standard WordPress service to collect anonymous information about users’ activity on the site, for example the number of users viewing pages on the site, to monitor and report on the effectiveness of the site and help us improve it. WordPress requires visitors that want to post a comment to enter a name and email address. For more information about how WordPress processes data, please see Automattic’s privacy notice.
