Privacy Statement

The definitions used in this Privacy Statement are the same as the definitions as included in the General Terms and Conditions of AmazingPlaces.com.

AmazingPlaces.com is responsible for following and complying with the principles of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We respect the privacy of our Users of the Website.

In this Privacy Statement we tell you which data we process, for what purposes and on what basis, what your rights are as a User and how you can invoke them. Visiting and/or using this Website implies acceptance of the terms of this Privacy Statement.

All data processed via Website will be treated with the utmost confidentiality and with the greatest possible care. Its storage and transmission via the internet is secured.

The information provided to Website by Users is not sold to third parties. We can only make personal data available to third parties without your permission if this is required by law. This includes, for example, lawful requests from authorities, summonses or court orders, actions to detect or prevent damage or fraud.

Collection of Personal Data

Personal data includes all data that can be traced back to an individual natural person, such as an e-mail address. On Website, this information is only actively provided by our Users (permission) in the event that they register on the Website or share Contributions with us. Website stores this data in the content management system Prepr. Without this information you cannot create an Account and add tips to your Bucket List. In addition, Website keeps track of when you created your account, how many countries you visited and which Bucket List tips are added to your list.

You can change your data or have your entire account deleted at any time. If you want to delete your account, you can login and delete your account yourself via the button on your profile page.

All information provided by you will only be used:

  • to conduct market research (e.g. surveys);
  • to send digital newsletters (provided you have registered for this);
  • to allow you to participate in sweepstakes;
  • to display or send targeted content and data from the Website (e.g. e-mail); of which Website suspects on the basis of data that it may be interesting and relevant for you if you have registered for it);
  • to send targeted service messages about your use of the Website.

Other data

Website registers data through the statistics software from Google: Google Analytics and its content management system Prepr. Automatically, during every session, Google Analytics collects anonymously the following data:   

  • What browser is used to visit the website
  • From which country comes the IP-address
  • What time does the session start and end
  • What pages are visited in a session and for how long

Automatically, Prepr collects the following data:

  • the Internet Protocol (IP) address of the computer;
  • which browser a User uses;
  • the page a User comes from;
  • the time a User visits the Website;
  • all pages a User visits.

This data is encrypted so that it no longer directly identifies a User (pseudonymised). We use this pseudonymised data based on our legitimate interest to evaluate the use of Website and improve its usability and performance where necessary. We may also share this pseudonymised data with third parties. Think of the average number of visitors per month, the number of visitors who search with a certain keyword or the number of accounts that have a specific Bucket List Tip on their Bucket List.

Website stores your personal data as long as your Account is active. If you delete your Account, your personal data will be deleted immediately and irrevocably. We also delete personal data when it is no longer necessary for the above-mentioned purposes.

As indicated in the overview of cookies used under 'expiry period', all cookies are stored on your computer or mobile phone for a limited period of time. After the expiry period, the information is refreshed and the cookie is automatically deleted.

If you do not have an Account but contact us via or mention us on social media or contact us, this data will be stored for two years.

In other cases, we will keep your personal data for as long as necessary for the purposes as stated in this Privacy Statement and the Cookie Policy and for compliance with (local) laws and regulations. We will then delete your personal data. If we still want to use the data after the retention period, for example for analyses, we will make your data anonymous.
