Who we are
We are an independent travel information website called Visit Croatia. Our website address is https://www.visit-croatia.co.uk.
What personal data is collected via this site and why
Visit Croatia uses the Disqus comment system to allow our website visitors to leave comments and ask questions, and for us (and others) to respond to these questions, comments and discussions.
Email and IP addresses of users are collected strictly for moderation purposes (in almost all cases, to help with moderating and deleting spam comments and banning spammers). Visit Croatia does not otherwise process or share this data in any way.
IP addresses of users on the forums are logged purely for moderation purposes (to help combat spam, in particular).
If you are already a member of one of our forums, you may wish to check your user profile to make sure all information displayed there is something you would like to share (or not) with others. If you need any help with changing the settings on your account or would like assistance in deleting your account, please email us.
Visit Croatia does not use or share forum members’ user data in any way.
Sponsored links, affiliate tracking & commissions
Clickable sponsored or affiliate links may be displayed as a website URL e.g. www.booking.com or a titled text link e.g. Accommodation. However, not all links displayed on this website are sponsored or affiliate links.
Clicking on any adverts, sponsored or affiliate links may track your actions by using a cookie saved to your device. You can read more about cookies on this website above. Your actions are usually recorded as a referral from our website by this cookie. In most cases, we earn a small commission from the advertiser or advertising partner, at no cost to you, whether you make a purchase on their website or not.
We use advertising partners in these ways to help generate an income from the website, which allows us to continue our work and provide you with valued information and the best overall experience.
If you have any concerns about this we suggest you do not click on any adverts, sponsored or affiliate links found throughout the website.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc, such as Instagram photos). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Visit Croatia uses Google Analytics to collect analytics data. Data associated with cookies, user identifiers, or advertising identifiers is stored by Google Analytics for 26 months, after which time it is deleted.
Who we share your data with
Aside from any data obtained with our commenting system or our analytics partner mentioned above, we do not share your data with any third party (see below).
We welcome anyone to contact us privately via email if you have any travel questions (or other general questions) on Croatia. By emailing us, you are giving your consent for us to contact you (i.e. to reply to you!).
