About Voucherbuddy.co.uk

Voucherbuddy.co.uk is a website which provides users with voucher codes and discount information for use on many online retail stores and service providers.

We find the discounts by linking up with our online partners that provide us with listings of current offers and promotions. These promotions are then listed on voucherbuddy.co.uk and can be used by anyone who wishes to visit.

How will we use the information about you?

The basic information we collect allows us to track sales conversions, so we can earn small commissions for these sales.

A list of out third-party vendors is available to view here. More information about cookies is provided later in this privacy policy.
