Privacy Policy

Tim Leffel, editor of the Cheapest Destinations Blog, takes your privacy seriously. This privacy policy describes what personal information we collect and how we use it.

Direct Information Collection

We do not harvest e-mail addresses from comments and do not make any attempt to contact readers beyond those who have won a contest or have asked to be e-mailed to answer a question.

We do employ two double opt-in newsletter sign-ups that collect e-mail addresses and names only. Readers must supply this information voluntarily via our RSS provider Feedblitz (to receive blog posts by e-mail) and through the Cheap Living Abroad newsletter sign-up.
