Privacy Policy

What information is being collected?

If you sign up as a member to Buyuwish we will store your e-mail address and chosen username so we can get in touch. If you register via Facebook you’ll have an option to choose what information you provide us. By default, Facebook sends us what is referred to as your “public profile” information. This can include your email address, full name, profile picture, gender and age range. Whilst signing up you can choose what information is shared with us and opt out if you would prefer.

We also store your IP address. We do this to help prevent abuse of the Buyuwish community and it’s guidelines. For example, we may use the IP address to detect retailers who sign up for multiple accounts to try and unscrupulously promote their own services.

For the purpose of creating new features and functionality in the future (e.g. cash back and a personalised deals feed) we store information about some purchases made through the Buyuwish website. This may include products purchased, amount spent and other associated information.

If you choose to sign up for our WhatsApp notifications your mobile number is stored so that we can send you messages. Similarly, if you choose to sign up for our Facebook Messenger notifications, your public Facebook profile information may be stored. For clarity: you have to actively opt-in to these services.

Who is collecting the data and who is it shared with?

We (Buyuwish Limited) hold your data and do not share it with any third parties other than set out below:

  • Our website uses Google Analytics to analyse how users interact with the site. This is fairly standard practice amongst websites and we assure you nothing untoward is going on! It helps us keep track of the number of visitors to Buyuwish and spot popular deals and trends. You can read more about Google Analytics and the what/how/why at their website, here. We anonymise your IP address before sending it to Google Analytics. 
  • We use a service called MailChimp to manage our email newsletter subscriptions. We share your email address and, if you provided it to us, your full name with MailChimp. This allows us to send you personalised emails. We also use MailChimp to let us know how people interact with our emails – e.g. if/when they’re opened and what links are clicked. We use this information to try and improve our emails so they’re as useful as possible.
  • If you sign up to our WhatsApp notifications, your mobile number and any interactions with us via WhatsApp are handled and stored by a third party service called MessengerPeople.
  • If you sign up for our Facebook Messenger notifications, your public Facebook profile information will be handled and stored by a third party service called ManyChat.

For full information about how any third party processes and handles information please refer to their respective privacy policy and terms.

Why is the data collected?

We ask for your email address so that we can get in touch with you. As outlined above, your IP address is stored to help prevent the abuse of Buyuwish. Any other information is used to help improve Buyuwish and tailor our content to our visitors.

How this site works

To cover the site's running costs, Buyuwish uses affiliate links.

If you click on a link to an external website and make a purchase, Buyuwish may earn a commission.

We allow deals to be shared on Buyuwish irrelevant of whether or not they generate us money. Our #1 concern is helping you save money.

If you have any questions about how the site works, drop us a message. We're always happy to help.
