Do We Share Your Data?
Here, at SimplyHolidayDeals our subscribers are very important to us. Without you, there would be no us. This means that we endeavour to do all we can to keep our subscribers happy and this includes not selling on your data, ever.
However, in order to get our emails out to you, we do have to share your email addresses with some of the platforms that we use. These platforms don’t sell on your data either, or use it themselves – they just look after it for us.
What Data Do We Store on You?
We store very little data on you. We store your email address, name (if provided to us), address (if provided), and postcode (if provided).
We also store information about which emails you have opened and what you have clicked on within our emails. We use this information to stop sending to you when you no longer seem interested.
Mail Chimp stores your IP address, We are not able to see all of these addresses, but instead, just the last one stored.
Requesting Your Data
You can request the data that we hold on you at any point. To request your data email email@example.com with the email address that you are signed up with and we will provide this to you. This process may take up to 72 hours.
