Please read this Privacy Policy carefully. By visiting and using the Site, you agree that your use of my Site, and any dispute over privacy, is governed by this Privacy Policy. Because the Web is a growing and evolving space, I may need to change my Privacy Policy at some point in the future, in which case I’ll post the changes to this Privacy Policy on this website and update the Effective Date of the policy to reflect the date of the changes. I will endeavour to notify with 30 days notice of any changes made and the effective date. By continuing to use the Site after I post any such changes, you accept the Privacy Policy as modified.

I will never sell, barter, or rent your email address to any unauthorised third party.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

This site only contacts people who specifically request that I do so or in the event that they have signed up to receive my free email communications, or subscribed to the blog via email through WordPress/Jetpack to notify them when a new post is published, or joined in with my linky by adding a link to a post on their site.

The information that you give to me directly on the site (e.g. within comments on blog posts such as your name and email address) is never shared or added to any mailing lists. You may request to have your details removed from my website, for example those left in comments, or stored within the third party service I use for the linky (inLinkz.com) at any time by emailing me at  info@wandermustfamily.com 

To ensure the security and safety of this site, I may create regular backups of all information on this site, which are held on my own machine or within the database of the server of my site. Each backup file will be deleted in full when the next one is created.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site 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.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

Affiliate Programme Participation

Analytics

This site may use Google Analytics to track data.

Competitions

This site may run regular competitions and giveaways in the future. In order to facilitate these, competition entrants will be required to supply certain information. This will include but will not be limited to; full name, email address, and full postal address.

Full postal addresses of winners will be shared with brands where necessary to ensure delivery of your prize. As such, supplying of full postal address is necessary to enter any competitions on this site. Your details will never be shared with anyone other than the brand supplying the prize for the giveaway or competition which you enter. I will take steps to ensure that prize suppliers are GDPR compliant and do not use your details for any other reason than to provide your prize, but I cannot be held responsible for any misuse of data by any third party.

Email addresses supplied during the entering of competitions and giveaways will be used solely for the purposes of contacting winners. Your details will never be added to mailing lists or shared with any third parties unless necessary.

The sharing of full name, email address, and full postal address will be required in order to facilitate competitions and giveaways, and therefore the collection of this information is granted legally under the GDPR base of ‘contract’ As such, if you are not happy to share your full name, email address, and full postal address I will be unable to continue with your competition or giveaway entrance.

In the event that the online software I may use to facilitate competitions and giveaways in the future incurs a security breach, I will notify the ICO within 72 hours of being aware of the breach. I will endeavour to notify all competition entrants for whom I have details as soon as is reasonably and safely practicable.

You may request to have your details removed from my database and competition software any time after a competition or giveaway has ended by contacting me at info@wandermustfamily.com

 

External Links

The Site may include links to websites I recommend or work with on a collaborative basis, and provides access to products and services offered by third parties, whose privacy policies I do not control.

Some of the links I provide are affiliate links. This means if you click on the link and purchase the item connected to that link, I will receive an affiliate commission at no cost you. When you access another website or purchase third-party products or services through the Site, use of any information you provide is governed by the privacy policy of the operator of the site you are visiting, or the provider of such products or services.

 

Who we share your data with

Be aware that I may occasionally release information about my visitors when release is appropriate to comply with law or to protect the rights, property or safety of users of the site or the public.

I take steps to ensure that all Virtual Assistants I use to help me complete tasks are GDPR knowledgeable and compliant in their practices.

I always disclose when a post contains affiliate links.

 

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.

All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
