This privacy policy sets out how The Grain-Free Kitchen uses and protects any information that you give while using thegrain-freekitchen.com

What Personal Data Do We Collect and What Do We Do With It?

When you use one of our forms to sign up for our mailing list or newsletter, we collect your email address. You will receive a verification email (to ensure you did in fact request to sign-up) and then an email whenever a new article is posted. Rest assured I will not flood your inbox! You may get one or two emails a month.

When you leave a comment on my website, we collect a name (can be first, last or whatever you wish to comment under), an email address (and optionally) a website address.

Where Your Information is Stored

We are committed to ensuring your information is secure. Personal information that you provide when leaving a comment is stored on the server at our web hosting company, GoDaddy.

3rd Parties We Use That Store User Data

Akismet – We use the Akismet anti-spam service to check comments submitted to our website for spam content.  The information they collect 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, email address and the comment itself).

Analytics

We use Google Analytics to track more details about how our website is being used. We can analyze the IP address, type of browser, date/time, pages visited, amount of clicks, referring pages, exit pages, and other information that is completely anonymous.

Who We Share Your Data With

We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your explicit permission or are required to do so by law.

How Long We Retain Your Data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadats are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a queue for moderation.

Amazon Affiliate Links

Our website is a participant in the Amazon Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com

On our website there are links to products on the Amazon website which I have recommended or profiled. When you click through to the Amazon website from one of these product links I make a small amount of commission if you go on to purchase the product.  However, the price you pay will be exactly the same as if you had gone directly to the Amazon website.

Links to Other Websites

Our website may have links to other websites of interest. Once you use a link and leave The Grain-Free Kitchen website, please note that we do not have any control over that other website. As such, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information you may provide while on that other website. Other websites are not governed by our privacy policy statement.
