Who we are
Our website address is: https://www.cookandchew.com.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
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.
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.
Any personal information submitted through a contact form is only used for the purpose you select, i.e., to receive our email newsletter. Information submitted through contact forms is never sold or shown to any outside party, except as may be required by law.
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.
“The one exception is a tracking cookie containing a randomly generated Unique ID (“UID”). This cookie does not identify who a visitor actually is or reveal anything else about them, but the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), as well as the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), consider a UID to be “personal data”. However, per Article 6 of the GDPR, this cookie does not require a visitor’s direct consent as it is well within the “legitimate interests” of any web site to know how many unique visitors they have, which is best accomplished with a UID cookie. The CCPA is an opt-out law, so UID cookies are allowed by default. The ePrivacy Regulation (ePR) is not yet law as of May 2018, but we don’t anticipate any further impact.”
Who we share your data with
At this time, we do not share your data with anyone.
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.
Your contact information
