Privacy and your data
How your data is used
When you sign up for the Be Clever With Your Cash newsletter, your email address is collected. Older subscribers also provided their name.
This information will solely for Be Clever With Your Cash to send you emails about content on the site. This is usually once a week, though there may be occasions where additional emails are sent.
You can unsubscribe at any time using the link found in every email communication sent.
Once a year I audit the subscriber list and ask anyone who hasn’t actively engaged with the email in that time (as long as they have been subscribed for more than six months) if they wish to carry on receiving the emails. If they do not reply they will be unsubscribed.
Your name, email address and IP address will also be required if you make a comment on any pages or posts on the blog. This information may be used to contact you if the comment requires a follow-up.
The name you enter will be published, and I reserve the right to edit and comment you write. I also do not have to approve a comment posted.
IP addresses help with the security of the site in the case of spammers or hackers.

Data is only kept for as long as it is needed to fulfill the purpose you gave it.

How the blog makes money
Some of the links used on the site are what’s known as “affiliate links”. By buying through those links I may receive a commission for the sale. This is the same model used by sites like Money Saving Expert and Voucher Cloud. This has no effect on the price for you.
Adverts are generated via Mediavine based on your browser history. I don’t have any say in what adverts appear, though I have tried to block as many I deem unsuitable as is possible.
The blog’s independence is really important to me so I only include the best offers and deals, whether there is an affiliate link available or not. I also refuse all sponsored posts. Everything I write is because I believe it’s something you should know about, not because I’ve been paid to write it.
But any money I do make helps me carry on producing the articles and podcasts for you to enjoy!
