Collection of Personal Information
Personal information covers all information that can be used to identify an individual. For example, first/last name, home address or other physical address, e-mail address, phone number, etc. Destination Arctic Circle requires you to enter personal information in the website for the following activities:
Your hiking plan
We encourage all hikers to fill out a form outlining the details of their hike. This information is used internally within Destination Arctic Circle to understand traffic along the trail – when people are hiking, how long they take to hike, which direction they hike, etc. This is then used to plan future hiking seasons and in maintaining the trail.
Feedback (Tell us about your hike)
We also encourage hikers to complete a feedback form at the end of their hike. This information is used internally within Destination Arctic Circle to identify issues on the trail (important given it’s length and difficult access), and improvements we can make to further enhance the hiking experience.
Support the ACT
Hikers have the option of hiring a Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) from Destination Arctic Circle (DAC) as a safety precaution on the trail. No information is collected by the website. Users email Destination Arctic Circle directly for payment instructions.
Embedded content from other websites
Certain pages on arcticcircletrail.gl may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, social media streams, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Sharing Personal Information
Destination Arctic Circle discloses your personal information only to the extent that it is necessary to provide the services you have booked with us. We do not disclose your personal information to partners or third parties so that they can use your information for direct marketing.
