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.
Nature Travels uses only the basic form of Google Analytics. We do not collect any personal information - in addition, we use the AnonymizeIP tag to further anonymise data. No sensitive or 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. Chrome).
We do also use Google Remarketing tags, which recognise that you have visited our website and through which you may subsequently see display ads for Nature Travels when browsing the web.
To improve the experience of visiting our site, we use plugins from other websites in certain parts of the site. These are:
