Google Analytics: Like millions of websites around the world, Nature Travels uses Google Analytics to give us information about traffic to our website. Examples of the kind of information Google Analytics tells us include what phrases or words someone typed when searching for our site, what pages they visited and how long they spent looking at each page. This information helps us to understand what our customers are looking for so that we can design our website and structure our information to help them find it more easily. No sensitive or detailed personal information is passed to us through Google Analytics, but we might for example receive information about the general area you are browsing from (e.g. London) or the browser you are using to look at our site (e.g. Internet Explorer).
To improve the experience of visiting our site, we use plugins from other websites in certain parts of the site. These are:
- Facebook: To show our latest posts from the Nature Travels Facebook page.
- YouTube: To show slideshows of photos from our experiences and sometimes video.
- Google Maps: To show interactive maps indicating flight connections and the approximate location of our experiences.
