Privacy Policy

The Basics

We take your privacy seriously. We will never misuse or sell your data on. Sometimes the use of third party software by WanderingBrits is needed to manage our website, manage our mailing list and fulfill WanderSnacks subscriptions. 

As most websites do, we use widely recognised third party software which monitors how visitors interact with our website so that we can monitor progress and make improvements where needed. 

We use third party software to manage our mailing list which enables us to send you emails, but your email address is not shared with advertisers and further third parties. 

Subscribers to WanderSnacks enter their payment details to the Paypal or Stripe software which is subject to their own privacy policies and payment details are not stored by WanderingBrits. Order details are available to WanderingBrits via a well known eCommerce software provider which is in line with industry standards. By subscribing to WanderSnacks you agree for your details to be shared with third party courier companies in order to fulfill your shipment. 

If you have any questions about how your personal data is used, please contact info@WanderingBrits.com and we will be happy to direct you to the relevant information.
