The Wand’rly Privacy Policy

We recently heard that if you read through every privacy policy on every website the average user browses in a year, it’d take 30 days to get through them all. That’s not the way we do business around here, so here it is, short, simple and what you should already know.

Wand’rly Magazine Collects Information About You

That’s right, we do. Firstly, we use software called Google Analytics which tells us how many people are visiting our site, what browser they’re using, what country they live in, how long they hang around, stuff like that. It doesn’t tell us your name, phone number or any personally identifying information. A lot of the websites you visit every day also use it. Occasionally, we’ll gather your IP address for things like taking polls, or if you submit a form yourself (such as signing up for our newsletter, filling in a comment form or purchasing a subscription, in which cases you’ve already volunteered info about yourself in the first place). Also, see Display Ads below.

If you live in California, or the European Union, or any other country that has some Internet-killing laws about how we can’t collect cookies or some bullshit like that, we want you to know that we think those laws are stupid like Ernest Goes to Camp. However, you can contact us at any point and we’ll be more than happy to remove your information from our website, and Google Analytics, and anywhere else you ask us to remove it from.

But, your legislators are absolute morons, idiots really, whichever is going to Jupiter to get more stupider, so you should probably write them and tell them you’ll be voting for a piece of burnt toast in the shape of a child’s drawing of Wile E. Coyote after he falls off of a cliff and makes that dust poof. Really, you should.

Display Ads

The Website uses Mediavine to manage all third-party advertising on the Website. Mediavine serves content and advertisements when you visit the Website, which may use cookies. Mediavine may collect IP addresses and location to serve personalized ads. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices to opt-in or opt-out of this data collection, please visit


All of our subscription payments (except those made way back in 2012 – 2014) are handled via Stripe. Your information is sent to them, in order to process your credit card, when you voluntarily fill out the form and add that information to do so. They’re a very reputable company used by millions of websites, and are PCI compliant and all of that fun stuff. If you want us to delete your information from Stripe, login to your paid subscription account here on the website and cancel your account, or email us from the same email address you use on the account, and we’ll be happy to do so for you.

Wand’rly Doesn’t Share Your Information

We don’t sell your information to anyone ever. We won’t SPAM you and if you ever want to unsubscribe from our newsletters, it’s all handled via our own newsletter system, and we’re happy to manually unsubscribe you too, if clicking a link in an email is too much. Just contact us, or reply to the email, and we’ll do so before the next email goes out. Other than with Google Analytics, Stripe and what Mediavine collects, we don’t share your information with any actual humans and only will ever use it with the occasional third party service (like our hosting provider) if we need to for the purposes of running this site, and you specifically write in telling us about a problem you’re having. All payment information on the site is handled via Stripe. You can also contact us directly if you have any questions whatsoever. Also, see Display Ads above.

Thanks for reading!
