By visiting The Frugal Fellow, you are consenting to our privacy policy. Your privacy is very important to us, and we will take the appropriate steps to ensure it remains safe and secure.

How we collect and use your information

Each visitor on the site may have some basic information collected. However, this information will never be sold to a third party, nor will it be used without your consent. Such collection is solely intended for improving your experience while visiting this site.

Google Analytics

Google Analytics is used to track the performance of this site. As such, it may store information such as your location, web browser, operating system, and IP addresses. This information is used for informational purposes only and cannot be linked to any one specific person.


MailChimp is used to maintain our list of subscribers. MailChimp will only store the information that you provide when you subscribe, and subscribing is completely optional. Additionally, if you do subscribe, you have the option to opt out at any time. Each e-mail sent to our subscribe contains a link which can be used to update your preferences or unsubscribe entirely at any time. MailChimp also has their own privacy policy, which can be viewed here.


This site uses cookies to store your preferences, opt-ins, and any layout choices you may have selected.

If you do not wish to have such information stored, you may choose to disable cookies in your Internet browser’s settings. Some features of the site may not work as intended without cookies, but this is entirely at your discretion.

Additionally, it is not recommended that you disable cookies for every site you visit; instead, this can be done on a per-site basis by adding individual sites to your browser settings.


Each time you comment on an article, you are required to provide a few basic pieces of information. Additionally, your IP address and browser information may be recorded as a spam prevention measure.

All comments and their metadata will be stored indefinitely. The purpose of this is so that comments can be approved immediately rather than being approved manually. You may request a file containing such information which is held about you if you so choose. You may also request that we delete any such data at any time. This does not include data we are required to hold for legal or security purposes.

We also use Gravatar images if there is one linked to your e-mail address when commenting. An randomly-generated string may be provided to Gravatar if you choose to use this service. Gravatar has a privacy policy here.

Affiliates and other sites

This site may contain links to affiliates and other third-party Web sites. The Frugal Fellow is not subject to nor does it enforce the policies of such sites. These sites may have their own privacy policies, and anyone interacting with their links would be subject to that privacy policy, rather than the one found here.

Acceptance of terms

By visiting this site, you agree with all terms and conditions. If for any reason you do not agree with the terms, you may opt to discontinue usage of this site at any time.

If you have any questions about these terms, or any other questions, please contact us at [email protected].
