What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

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.

Data Used: Commenter’s name, email address, and site URL (if pro­vid­ed via the com­ment form), time­stamp, and IP address. Addi­tion­al­ly, a jetpack.wordpress.com IFrame receives the fol­low­ing data: WordPress.com blog ID attached to the site, ID of the post on which the com­ment is being sub­mit­ted, commenter’s local user ID (if avail­able), commenter’s local user­name (if avail­able), commenter’s site URL (if avail­able), MD5 hash of the commenter’s email address (if avail­able), and the com­ment con­tent. Because Akismet (also owned by Automat­tic) is enabled on the site, the fol­low­ing infor­ma­tion is sent to the ser­vice for the sole pur­pose of spam check­ing: commenter’s name, email address, site URL, IP address, and user agent.

Activ­i­ty Tracked: The com­ment author’s name, email address, and site URL (if pro­vid­ed dur­ing the com­ment sub­mis­sion) are stored in cook­ies. Learn more about these cook­ies.

Data Synced: All data and meta­da­ta (see above) asso­ci­at­ed with com­ments. This includes the sta­tus of the com­ment, and whether or not it was clas­si­fied as spam by Akismet.

Post Likes

In order to process a post like action, the fol­low­ing infor­ma­tion is used: IP address, WordPress.com user ID, WordPress.com user­name, WordPress.com-connected site ID (on which the post was liked), post ID (of the post that was liked), user agent, time­stamp of event, brows­er lan­guage, coun­try code.

Contact forms

When vis­i­tors use the con­tact form on the site, we col­lect the data shown in the con­tact form, for the pur­pos­es of reply­ing to vis­i­tors who con­tact us.

The con­tact form sub­mis­sion data — IP address, user agent, name, email address, web­site, and mes­sage — is sub­mit­ted to the Akismet ser­vice (also owned by Automat­tic) for the sole pur­pose of spam check­ing. The actu­al sub­mis­sion data is stored in the data­base of the site on which it was sub­mit­ted and is emailed direct­ly to the own­er of the form (i.e. the site author who pub­lished the page on which the con­tact form resides). This email will include the submitter’s IP address, time­stamp, name, email address, web­site, and mes­sage.

The IP address and user agent orig­i­nal­ly sub­mit­ted with the com­ment are synced, as well, as they are stored in post meta.

Blog Subscription

  • You may choose to sub­scribe to this blog by enter­ing your email address and click­ing on “sub­scribe” in the sub­scrip­tion box.
  • Your email address will be used sole­ly for the pur­pose of send­ing you emails inform­ing you of new recipes post­ed on the blog. At no point in time, will we ever use your email address for any oth­er pur­pose.
  • You may unsub­scribe at any time, and if so, your email will be imme­di­ate­ly delet­ed from our files.

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.

These web­sites may col­lect data about you, use cook­ies, embed addi­tion­al third-par­ty track­ing, and mon­i­tor your inter­ac­tion with that embed­ded con­tent, includ­ing trac­ing your inter­ac­tion with the embed­ded con­tent if you have an account and are logged in to that web­site.

If you use the “share” but­ton to share con­tent on social media (e.g. Twit­ter, Facebook…etc), by doing so, you are agree­ing to their Terms of Use and Pri­va­cy Pol­i­cy.

Analytics

We use Jet­pack ana­lyt­ics, sole­ly for the pur­pos­es of improv­ing our web­site. You may view Jetpack’s pri­va­cy pol­i­cy here.

Data Used: In order to record page views, the fol­low­ing infor­ma­tion is used: IP address, user agent, vis­it­ing URL, refer­ring URL, time­stamp of event, brows­er lan­guage, coun­try code.

Activ­i­ty Tracked: Page views will be tracked with each addi­tion­al load (i.e. when you scroll down to the bot­tom of the page and a new set of posts loads auto­mat­i­cal­ly).

Who we share your data with

This web­site does not share your per­son­al infor­ma­tion with any oth­er third par­ties.

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.

For users who sub­scribe to the blog, we store user-pro­vid­ed email address­es indef­i­nite­ly, only for the pur­pos­es of email­ing sub­scribers updates on new recipes. Sub­scribers may unsub­scribe at any time. If they do so, their email(s) will be auto­mat­i­cal­ly delet­ed from our files.

What rights you have over your data

If you sub­scribed to the blog 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

For secu­ri­ty rea­sons, vis­i­tor com­ments are checked through a spam detec­tion ser­vice.
