We’ve created this Privacy Policy so you can understand all the ways that the Wildlife Garden Directory, run by Wildlife Garden Project CIC obtain, use and store your data. We want you to know that we are committed to safeguarding the privacy of our website visitors, members and subscribers. And because we don’t know many people who are into legal jargon, we’ve tried to keep this policy as plain talking as possible. If you have any questions at all, just ask!

How we use your personal data

Business registrations

If you are a gardening business who has registered your business with us, we will use the information you provide to create your listing on our website. This information includes your name, business name, contact details and details about your business and the services you provide. This information will be available to view on your business listing for the purpose of connecting you with customers in your area. Your name and email address will also be added to our mailing list. This mailing list will only be used to send you emails relating to the operation of your listing within our website. Your data will be kept by us as long as you remain registered on our directory. You are free to remove your listing at any time by deleting your account in Account or by emailing us with a request to delete your listing.


If you’ve made an enquiry with us, we will collect essential data such as your name and email address. We will only store information that you willingly give us and will only use it to carry out any actions relating to the enquiry you make with us.

If you make a one off enquiry, we will keep your data for 3 years before it is deleted.

Email Newsletters

We use MailChimp for our Wildlife Garden Project email newsletters. MailChimp offer a range of features that protect you and your data, including requiring a double opt in (so we can be sure that no one else is using your email address to sign up). You will only receive the newsletter if you give us consent by signing up to receive it, and then click the link in the confirmation email we send. You can unsubscribe at any time by following the link in any of our newsletter emails.
