We use a small number of trusted external service providers. These providers are carefully selected and meet high data protection, data privacy and security standards. We only share information with them that is required for the services offered.

Here's what that means:

  • An email address is required to create an account. You need to provide us with your email address if you want to create a Wantlister account. That's so you can log in and personalize your new account, and we can send you invoices, updates or other essential information.

  • Emails are sent using Amazon Web Services. Transactional emails are sent with AWS SES.
  • User feedback is powered by a 3rd party service When you write to us with a suggestion or a question, that feedback is handeled by a privacy-oriented 3rd party service, We keep that correspondence, which includes the email address, so that we have a history of past correspondences to reference if you reach out in the future. We use this data solely in connection with answering the questions we receive.
