Privacy policy and email data

This blog does not share personal information with third parties nor do we store any information about your visit to this blog other than to analyze and optimize your content and reading experience through the use of cookies.

How do we look after your data?  

Who holds your data?  We use a company called MailChimp to both manage our email list and to automatically send out our newsletters.  Your data is held by MailChimp and not by Turning Left for Less.  By signing up to our email list, you consent to us passing your data to MailChimp.  Your data may be held outside the European Union.

What do we do with your data?  Your email address is only used for sending our newsletters.  Very occasionally, this may include articles sponsored by external companies.  We do not rent our list to third parties and we do not send out advertising material on behalf of third parties.

What data do we hold?  The only data we request is your email address.  You may – at your discretion – add your name to your record by clicking ‘Update Profile’ at the bottom of every email.  This makes it less likely that our emails are treated as spam because your name is encoded into the ‘To’ box.

What usage data is collected?  MailChimp tracks how many of our emails you open and whether you click on any links.  We only use this data to identify and delete accounts which are no longer active, eg a work email address where the employee has left the company.  MailChimp also tracks what device you use to read your emails in order to use the most suitable mailing format.

How can you unsubscribe?   You may unsubscribe at any point by using the link included in all of our emails.  Emails will cease immediately.

How can I get a copy of my MailChimp data?  Email [email protected] via the email address you use for our emails and we will happily send you a screenshot of your MailChimp profile.

Turning Left for Less uses affiliate links. This means that some of the links you see listed on this site pay TLFL referral fees for sending them business and sales for certain products. Running TLFL costs money as does all the travel that I review and affiliate links and advertising are how we fund this site.

Any posts that are sponsored will be cleared marked as such but will only be featured if they are in keeping with the TLFL readers interests. We do occasionally receive free products and services. These are only accepted if it is keeping with TLFL’s readers interests and is of high quality. These posts will be clearly marked. All other travel and products are funded by Turning Left for Less.

As TLFL features daily posts with limited time offers, readers should always ensure that they do they own research to ensure the offer is still valid and what the terms and conditions of the offers are.

Any credit cards featured are discussed solely in terms of the travel benefits to the reader and should not be construed as financial advice.
