Who we are

Hello! We are Little Wanderlust Stories and our website address is: Little Wanderlust Stories is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected.

Why We Collect Personal Data

We have a two lawful bases for processing data:

  1. We have a “legitimate interest” for processing data because we are a customer service provider and need to contact customers and prospective customers in order to exist. By contacting through email whenever possible we are causing minimal privacy impact and indeed limiting interruption to customers.
    We will only contact you if we have collected contact details directly from you and not from a 3rd party marketing database.
  2. We have a “contractual interest” to communicate with you if you have asked us to contact you or in order to communicate during a project or supported issue.

If we are contacting you without having obtained contact details directly from you, then we will first send an email requesting consent to communicate. In some cases we may hold details of technical configuration. If we do this then we also hold details of a primary contact. We will never release this information to anybody except the primary contact without first gaining  written permission from the primary contact.

What personal data we collect


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
