3.0 PERSONAL INFORMATION THAT THIS WEBSITE COLLECTS AND WHY WE COLLECT IT
This webpark collects and uses personal information for the following reasons:
3.1 Park visitation tracking
Like most webparks, this park uses Google Analytics (GA) to track user interaction. We use this data to determine the number of people using our park, to better understand how they find and use our web pages and to see their journey through the webpark.
Although GA records data such as your geographical location, device, internet browser and operating system, none of this information personally identifies you to us. GA also records your computer’s IP address which could be used to personally identify you but Google do not grant us access to this. We consider Google to be a third party data processor (see section 6.0 below).
Disabling cookies on your internet browser will stop GA from tracking any part of your visit to pages within this webpark.

The email content is then decrypted by our local computers and devices.
4.0 HOW WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
As detailed in section 3.2 above, if you submit a booking on our webpark some personal information will be stored within this webpark’s database. This is currently the only occasion where personal data will be stored on this webpark. This data is currently stored in an identifiable fashion; a limitation of the content management system that this webpark is build on at this present time which is Joomla. In the near future we aim to change the storage of this data to a pseudonymous fashion meaning that the data would require additional processing using a separately stored ‘key’ before it could be used to identify an individual.
Pseudonymisation is a recent requirement of the GDPR which many web application developers are currently working to fully implement. We are committed to keeping it as a high priority and will implement it on this webpark as soon as we are able to.
