Privacy Policy

Happy Holiday is a travel blog committed to protecting your privacy when you visit our website, Most of the data that is collected on this website is automatic or done in the background. The only time we’d have your personal data (like name and email address) is if you manually entered it into the site somewhere. We are not in the business of taking information or data from our users and the only reason our website takes any data at all is to help us better serve you.

What we collect

We may collect the following information:

  • email address and name (only with your consent)
  • other information relevant to customer surveys and/or offers when user is prompted
  • Google Analytics tracking data (anonymous data that we use to see how many people visit our site)


When a user leaves a comment, we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

Contact forms

When a user fills in a contact form, we collect the data shown in the form.  It will be used for the specific purpose you identify and nothing more.

Email Newsletters

The only time that we actually use your email to send you a message is if you request that we do so. On this blog, you will see opt-in forms that ask for your first name and email address. If you do choose to enter this information, we will send you emails including whatever special offer you requested, as well as some emails about travel, to help you travel, or save money for travel. We NEVER share your email with anyone and you can unsubscribe from all of our emails at any time.

What we do with the information we collect

  • Internal record keeping
  • We may use the information to improve our products and services

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
