This is the privacy declaration.
This declaration explains how we handle the personal information that we receive through or because of the website.
The website provides general information about tourist attractions and recreational destinations in the region. It is also possible to click through to pages that provide more specific tourism-related information at regional and local level.
Contact forms and email
If you make contact with us via the contact form on this website, we will only use your details for the purpose of answering your question or responding to your comment. Your details will then be deleted.
Participation in promotions and prize draws
If you take part in promotions, prize draws and/or surveys via this website, you must submit your name, address and other details. These details, along with your email address, will only be used for the relevant purpose and will be deleted once the relevant activity has been concluded.
When you subscribe to a newsletter via this website, you will receive a message asking you to confirm your registration (double opt-in). Once we have received your confirmation, we will send you the newsletter periodically until you cancel your subscription. You will receive max. 1 newsletter per month. We store your email address exclusively for the purpose of sending you the newsletter.
At the bottom of each newsletter you will see a link to ‘unsubscribe to the newsletter’. If you click on that link you will be taken to a page where you can fill in your email address and confirm that you no longer wish to receive the newsletter. If in exceptional cases this method of unsubscribing should not work, you can send us a written request and we will remove your details from the mailing list.
Why are cookies used?
Web pages have no memory. The web server regards a visitor who surfs from one page to another on the same website as a new visitor each time. Cookies ensure that the website recognises your browser.
We use different types of cookies for different purposes. Please bear in mind that if you reject (certain types of) cookies, some or all functionalities of this website may be restricted. See below for an overview of the types of cookies we use and the associated purposes.
1. Functional cookies enable us to offer this website and keep it operational, and to remember your preferences. Google Maps installs some cookies to track statistics relating to the use of Google Maps itself and other cookies to store preferences (e.g. preferred type of display).
2. Google Analytics cookies, to gain insight into how our visitors use (various parts of) this website, e.g. visitor numbers and popular pages and topics. This enables us to better align our communication with the needs of visitors to this website. We cannot see who (which PC) visits the Google website. As the provider of this service, Google can see this information, but it cannot link it to privacy-sensitive information. Google may not use this information for any other purposes nor pass the information on the third parties without a judicial order to do so.
3. Social media cookies are necessary in order to like messages, share news items and update your status on Facebook. More cookies will be installed if you are logged in to Facebook while visiting our website than if you aren’t logged in. In both cases, the information is stored for only a limited period (90 days) and is only used in order to improve products. It is not sold to or shared with advertisers without your permission. Information can only be shared on Facebook if you have expressly given your permission for this.
4. The advertising networks we work with install tracking cookies on your computer. These cookies are used to track which pages you visit in order to build up a profile of your online browsing behaviour. This profile is not linked to your name, address, email address and suchlike, but rather is only used to align advertisements with your browsing behaviour. In addition, these cookies are used to limit the frequency with which an advertisement is displayed to you.
Most cookies we use are session cookies. This means that they are automatically deleted from your hard drive when you end your session (i.e. when you log out or close your web browser). Permanent cookies have various lifetimes, ranging from 90 days to several years. You can delete permanent cookies manually via your browser settings.
In addition to us, third parties can also install cookies although they are only analytics cookies installed by Google. However, third parties cannot install cookies without our permission.
Rejecting (certain) cookies
You can change your browser settings (e.g. in Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox, Mozilla or Chrome) to indicate whether you accept cookies, and if so which ones. The location of these settings varies per browser. Check the ‘help’ function of your browser to find the exact location and method in your case.
Please bear in mind that if you reject (certain types of) cookies, some or all functionalities of the website might be restricted.
We have taken the relevant precautions to ensure the security of our systems in order to ensure that unauthorised persons cannot gain access to personal information.
The website includes links to other websites. In addition, the website contains links (e.g. hyperlinks, banners or buttons) to third-party websites. We have absolutely no say or influence over the contents and policies of these websites. Therefore, we cannot accept any responsibility for the manner in which those third parties communicate with you and/or handle your details.
Transfer of business activities
As we grow and develop further, it may be the case that one or more components or assets of the business will be transferred to a third party. If this happens, the details of our customers will also be transferred.
Information about and amendment of your details
If you would like to know which details we hold about you or if you wish to amend your data, please contact us.
This Privacy Declaration is subject to change. Any changes will be announced on this page.
