Privacy notice


Here at The Beach Clean Network we take your privacy seriously. We do not give data to third parties, unless permission has been granted in advance. And that is basically never. That means you won’t get piles of email from random websites trying to sell you stuff.

We gather data such as names, emails and addresses where it is necessary to deliver physical items to you or to enable downloads of our copyrighted content via our shop. We do this to be able to find out where to deliver stuff or to find out who is taking advantage of our offers.

If you receive an email from us it will only be because you have bought something from us, have subscribed to our email list or have downloaded our app. You are welcome to unsubscribe at any time.

If you have any doubts, please read the notice carefully or get in touch.
