What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Your privacy is very important to us. At A Baker and Her Chef we have a few principles that we follow:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.

Like most website operators, A Baker and Her Chef collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. A Baker and Her Chef’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use our website. From time to time, A Baker and Her Chef may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

A Baker and Her Chef also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. We only disclose logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that we use and disclose personally-identifying information as described, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

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.

Contact forms/Email Addresses

Certain visitors to A Baker and Her Chef’s website choose to interact with us in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that A Baker and Her Chef gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example: Those who wish to receive A Baker and Her Chef’s updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, A Baker and Her Chef collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with us. We do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

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 tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

A Baker and Her Chef may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to our website.

However, A Baker and Her Chef will never disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

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.

Where we send your data

Although most changes are likely to be minor, we may change our Privacy Policy from time to time and at A Baker and Her Chef’s sole discretion. We encourage visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
