Literally Trailing

paper trail in usa means very long receipts



That's right, even your favorite weekly travel and language comic is beholden to new GDPR laws that require that we treat your personal data with respect. Personally I think this is amazing. Yes, it's been irritating this week to get Privacy Policy Updates Important Please Read Confirm Now emails, but it means that organizations have to be far less cavalier with your data, and that can only be a good thing.

Anyway, if you're reading this comic from your email, you're on this email list because you opted in to getting my weekly comic emails and other Itchy Feet-related material. I keep your email for that purpose, and that's it. I will never give your email or any of your personal information to anyone else without your explicit permission, though I do use Google services and MailChimp to manage the email list. I only keep your email for as long as you want to keep getting my comics - if at ANY TIME you want to unsubscribe and have your email removed from this list, there's a link at the bottom of this email where you can do so quickly and easily.

If you're reading this on the Itchy Feet website, I can't see any way in which I'm processing your personal data - you've already agreed to the cookies notice at the top of this page, and that's about it. 

Whew! That should do it. Thanks for reading!



  1. Wow, that's one long receipt

  2. Walgreens is the biggest culprit for this in my experience.

  3. This random lurker privacy policy has been updated, please accept absolutely nothing! Void where prohibited. Keep out of reach of children. Member FDIC.

  4. You should try taiwan. The receipts are lottery tickets and super long.
