What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
We save the data from your contact form simply to enable us to identify you when you log on to our site, to contact you to inform you about matters relating to your subscription, and to keep you up-to-date with news and important developments. We will never share your data or sell your data to anyone else, but we will use third parties such as MailChimp to help us manage our mailing lists.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
We share site usage data with Google Analytics, solely for the purposes of analysing website traffic and usage.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. If you bookmark a recipe or create a meal plan, the bookmark and/or the plan and relevant metadata are stored on our server for as long as you remain a subscriber.
For users that register on our website, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Your contact information
Your contact information will never be shared with any third party without your express consent and approval.
How we protect your data
Your data is stored solely on a secure server hosted by Bluehost with a dedicated IP address. We will never keep copies of your data at any other location without your express consent and approval.
What data breach procedures we have in place
In the event of a data breach on the Bluehost server, we rely on Bluehost to advise us of such a breach. When notified, we will immediately notify you by email, using the email address you provided at registration.
What third parties we receive data from
We receive analytical website usage data from Google Analytics; advertising response rates from Google Ads; product purchase data from Amazon.
What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data
We automatically add new subscribers to our mailing list, though subscribers can opt out at any time by emailing email@example.com. We may also profile our subscribers to aid us in targeting our marketing activities to attract new subscribers.
