Privacy Policy

Hi there. I’m Bethany, the blogger behind Adventures in Partaking and I’m thrilled that you’ve found us on your AIP journey. Here are Adventures in Partaking we respect your privacy and and only use your personal data in ways that you have requested… like to get our email newsletter, to answer your questions, or maybe to inform you if you’ve won a giveaway. We promise not to sell or share your personal data with any third party, because just like you we think it’s pretty annoying to get emails from people we don’t know or haven’t signed up for.

And, even though data is always left behind when we visit blogs (like this one), don’t worry I’m not collecting it or storing it in anyway. I’ve too many better things to do. I promise.

The rest of this privacy policy goes through the details of what is kept and stored on this blog and any third party applications that I use (like newsletter subscriptions). And, this policy will be reviewed often as laws and policies change.

So, if you’re interested in all the legal mumbo jumbo, please read on.

 

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.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

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.

Cookies

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. But, please note that I do not have access to this information.

 

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.

Analytics

When you visit Adventures in Partaking, a 3rd party service called Google analytics may collect standard information about your visit – where you are in the world, what pages your visited and whether you’re on a mobile device or desktop. This information is collected in such a way that it can never identify you personally. Occasionally we look at the analytics to try and adapt the site to meet your needs, as well as to think how cool it is that someone in Poland and someone in Australia are both looking at the same recipe.

Who we share your data with

We don’t share your data with anyone unless you have allowed it. For example, if you sign up for our newsletter, your email address is stored with a company called mailchimp and if you buy one of our ebooks, it’s stored with the sales platform called ejunkie. I am the only one who can access those email lists and I don’t share them with anyone.

If you sign up for the Adventures in Partaking newsletter, you will receive occasional newsletters from me with new recipes and posts and info about new AIP resources. You can opt out or unsubscribe from these lists at any time.

If you decide to purchase and item through the blog, you will be redirected to their site. Please check their privacy policy if you are concerned about how they handle personal information. We use affiliate links throughout the blog to help fund the creating of recipes. These links will mostly lead you to amazon or ejunkie and I have no access to your data from 3rd party purchases.

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 that register on our website (if any), 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.
