What personal data we collect and why we collect it?
- Subscribing to receive emails from The Spelt Kitchen
The information is not used for anything else, nor is it handed over to third parties (unless required to do so by law). Anyone who subscribes to the mailing list can unsubscribe at any time by simply clicking the unsubscribe button in the emails sent.
When visitors leave comments on The Spelt Kitchen, 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 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.
The Spelt Kitchen uses analytics to determine visitor’s behaviour while visiting the blog (views, clicks, etc). We use Google Analytics to gather data. However, if you would rather Google didn’t track or use your data, you can opt out.
Akismet Anti-spam collects information about visitors who comment. The information we collect depends on how the user sets up Akismet for the Site, but typically includes the commenter’s IP address, user agent, referrer, and site URL (along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself).
Third parties we receive data from
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
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 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.
Although my number one reason for starting The Spelt Kitchen was to bake and share my recipes, we now receive a small revenue from the blog. Honesty and integrity are important to us, and because of this, we will always be completely transparent in disclosing where and how we make money through The Spelt Kitchen.
- Sponsored Posts
These are posts that have been paid for by a “sponsor”. They will include a link to a product (an advert, if you like) and this will be disclosed at the beginning and end of the post.
- Review Posts
These are where we’ve received a product free of charge for the purpose of an honest review. This will be disclosed at the beginning and end of the post.
We currently have advertising for AdSense and Siteground (both located in the sidebar). When clicked, the reader is redirected to the site of the advertiser. We will receive a small revenue when this happens. If you have any questions about the ads we have on the blog, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
If you have any questions about any of the above, please feel free to contact us directly at: [email protected]
