While disclosures and policies aren’t the most exciting topic on the planet, they are certainly necessary. I don’t want you to be in any doubt of how I care for your personal information and how I may earn money by promoting products. Please read on!
I use affiliate links throughout my website. For example, as an Amazon associate, I earn from qualifying purchases. This means that when you click on an affiliate link, and purchase a product, I earn a small commission at no extra cost to you. I only use affiliate links on products that I find personally worthwhile, useful, and of value.

Types of data I collect
When someone visits aroundthethicket.com, I use Google Analytics to collect standard internet log information and details of the visitor’s behaviour on the site. This helps me learn things like how many visitors I have to different pages of my site. When this information is processed, it is anonymous: I can’t identify anyone. I never attempt, nor allow Google to attempt, to find out the identities of who is visiting my site.
When you sign up to receive emails from me, I take your personal information: namely, your email address. This lets me get in touch with you about news and updates on my blog, to get in touch with you if I need more information from you, to check that my records are correct, and to see if you are enjoying the blog! I do not share, sell, trade, or rent email lists with anyone else. Your contact details are extremely important and I’m so glad you feel you can trust me with them.
I use MailChimp, to send emails. Mailchimp allows me to see statistics about email opening and clicks to help me keep track of how I’m doing. This is pretty standard across the industry, and it helps me keep my emails relevant to you and your interests. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of my emails.
I take your privacy very seriously, and do not share your information with anyone else.
