Privacy Policy

Our Privacy Notice

Your privacy is extremely important to wellnessthroughwildness.com. Accordingly, we have developed this policy in order for you to understand how we collect, use, communicate and make use of personal information. The following outlines our privacy policy.

We are Wellness Through Wildness, a site dedicated to bringing you information about natural ways to attain wellness. Our website address is: https://wellnessthroughwildness.com. Our contact details are at the bottom of this page.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Similar to other commercial websites, our website uses the standard technology of ‘cookies’ (see explanation below) and server logs to collect information about how our site performs. Information gathered through cookies and server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our site, and the websites visited just before and just after our own, as well as your IP address. Before storage and processing, we anonymize your IP address.

An IP address is used by your computer every time you connect to the Internet. It is a number used on the network to identify your computer. It is automatically collected by our web server as part of demographic and profile data known as “traffic data” so that data (such as the Web pages you request) can be sent to you. Our system is set to anonymize your IP address before the data is stored and processing begins, by removing the last octet of the IP address.

Personal data is also generated from technical processes such as contact forms, comments, cookies, analytics, and third party embeds. We cover these in more detail below.

How Do We Use the Information That You Provide to Us?

Broadly speaking, we use personal information in the event of administering our business activities, that is, to provide customer service and to avail products and services to our customers and prospective customers.
