I, Janet Doré (AKA The Wandering Ex-Housewife), respect your right to privacy and am committed to the responsible management, use and protection of your personal information.
Information I Collect
The only identifiable personal information I collect is through the email subscription or contact forms located on the Website. Submission of information is voluntary, provided by you on the aforementioned forms, and includes only your first and last names, email address, and phone number.
How I Use Personal Information
How I Share Personal Information
I use third party services, such as email delivery, website hosting, data analysis, information technology, and other similar services. The only service that receives your identifiable personal information is my email provider (Mail Chimp) so I can provide this service.
On extremely rare occasions, I may share your information to comply with applicable laws, including laws outside your country of residence, respond to requests from government or public authorities or otherwise cooperating with authorities pursuant to a legal matter, including authorities outside your country of residence, respond to matters of personal or public safety, in litigation, investigations, and other legal matters where the data is pertinent, or investigating security incidents.
I do honor a web browser’s “do not track” signals.
An “IP Address” (a number that is automatically assigned to the computer that you are using by your Internet Service Provider) may be identified and logged automatically in my server log files whenever a user access the Website, along with the time of the visit and the page(s) that were visited. Collecting IP Addresses is standard practice and is done automatically by many websites, applications and other services. I use IP Addresses for purposes such as calculating usage levels of the Website, helping diagnose server problems, and providing my website content.

Anonymous and Aggregate Information
I may use and share anonymous and aggregate information for historical, statistical, or business planning purposes. Additionally, I may use and share this information for any purpose except where I am required to do otherwise under applicable law. If I am required to treat this information as personal information under applicable law, then I may use it as described above in “Other Information,” as well as for the purposes for which I use and share information.
My Online Privacy Notice for Children
My website is not directed to or intended for children. I do not knowingly collect or post information from children under the age of 13 in compliance with laws protecting the privacy of children. You can visit the Federal Trade Commission’s website to learn more about the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).
My Data Protection and Security Policy
I maintain profiles and/or pages on various social media platforms, including Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest. If you choose to “Like” The Wandering Housewife on Facebook, “Follow” The Wandering Housewife on Instagram or Pinterest, or take any other similar action on another social media site, you are providing your consent to receive information updates, including solicitations, from The Wandering Housewife.
To stop receiving this information from The Wandering Housewife on a social media site, you must follow the procedure established by each social media site. For example, on Facebook, you must click “Unlike” on The Wandering Housewife’s page, on Twitter, you must click “Unfollow,” etc.
Cross Border Transfers
Your personal information may be transferred to, stored and processed in any country in which I engage service providers, including the United States and Panamá. By using the Website, you consent to the transfer of information to countries outside of your country of residence which may have different data protection rules than your country.
I do not represent or warrant that the Website is appropriate or available for use in any particular jurisdiction. Those who choose to access the Website do so on their own initiative and at their own risk and are responsible for complying with all local laws, rules and regulations.
Changes to this Privacy Notice
Links to Other Websites
The Website contains links to websites operated by third parties. If you provide personal information to any third party’s website, your transaction will occur on that website (not The Wandering Housewife website) and that website operator will collect the personal information you provide and will be subject to its privacy policies. I encourage you to read the legal notice posted on those sites, including their privacy policies.
Please note that I am not responsible for the collection, usage and disclosure policies and practices (including the data security practices) of other organizations, such as Facebook, Apple, Google, Microsoft, social media platform provider, operating system provider, wireless service provider or device manufacturer, including any personal information you disclose to other organizations through or in connection with our Website or other websites.
Your California Privacy Rights
California Civil Code Section 1798.83, entitles California customers to request information relating to whether a business has disclosed personal information to any third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. As explained elsewhere in this Privacy Notice, I will not sell or transfer your personal information to third party companies for their direct marketing purposes without your consent.
California customers who wish to request further information about our compliance with this statute or who have questions may contact me (see below).
Online Communication Practice
If you contact me through the website contact form, please do not include information you want to keep private. It is possible that your e-mail communication may be accessed or viewed inappropriately by another Internet user while in transit to us. If you wish to send me information that you want to keep completely private, please use a method other than e-mail.
On occasion, I may send you electronic newsletters, information about products or services I offer, and other marketing communications. If you no longer want to receive marketing-related e-mails from me, you may opt-out of receiving these marketing-related emails by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the bottom or each email.
I will try to comply with your request(s) as soon as reasonably practicable. Please also note that if you do opt-out of receiving marketing-related e-mails from me, I may still need to send you important administrative message, and you cannot opt-out from receiving administrative messages.
