This Privacy Policy page explains how information about you is collected, used and disclosed by Traveling Freckles. This Privacy Policy applies to information we collect when you use “Services”, or when you otherwise interact with us.

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make changes, we will notify you by revising the “Last Updated” date at the top of this page and, in some cases, we may provide you with additional notice (such as by adding a statement to our website or by sending you a notification). We encourage you to review our Privacy Policy whenever you access the Services or otherwise interact with us to stay informed about our information, practices, and the ways you can help protect your privacy.

Collection of Information

We collect information you provide directly to us. For example, we collect information when you subscribe to a newsletter or email list, participate in an event, survey, contest or promotion, make a purchase, communicate with us via third-party social media sites, request customer support or otherwise communicate with us.

We choose vendors carefully and attempt only to use secure transmissions. However, you agree that we will not be liable or responsible for any data breaches that result in any loss, damage or other injuries when dealing with one of these vendors. These vendors may have their own privacy and data collection practices that differ from ours. For more information, please visit that vendor’s website to learn more about their internal policies and terms.
