Privacy Policies can be pretty heavy to get through, so I’ll summerise the main points first here, and go into the legalese a bit further on. You’re welcome!
I take data safety very seriously. I will only use your data to improve your user experience on this website.
My website contains affiliate links to products and services that I know and love. If you decide to purchase using an affiliate link on my website, I get a small percentage of the sale at no extra cost to you.
I will only ever recommend you products I have purchased personally or products I’ve done a ton of research on and plan on purchasing.
I also recommend accommodation, tours and activities and many other travel services throughout my blog and the same goes here. I will always disclose this near the top of the web page, and I won’t recommend you purchase anything that I wouldn’t recommend to my mum.
I am a professional travel blogger. I don’t tend to accept freebies these days (except, you know, if Apple wanted to gift me a new desktop I’d totally be down with that) but if a business gifts me anything, I will always disclose this.
If I am paid by a business to write a review or provide social media coverage about their business, I will always disclose this.
I only work with businesses that are in line with my morals and values. I want to have incredible travel experiences, but I care about people, animals and the environment. I wil never promote a business, service or product that isn’t ethical.
I will never promote animal or wildlife tourism unless I have done my research and these businesses are enhancing the lives of animals.
If I am unsatisfied with a business or service, I do NOT recommend them. Even if they pay me a gazillion dollars, I won’t bullshit you.
To summerise: I’ll always be honest with you, recommend products and services I use and love, and only work with eco-concious busineses that echo my ethos.
