Privacy Policy

Our website address is: https://www.myallergykitchen.com.

This policy describes what data this website may collect from you and how it will be used.

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 anonymised 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.

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.

Embedded Content

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.

Mailing list

To assist with sending you requested information, we use Mailchimp to collect and store your name and email address. Mailchimp outlines their use of your personal data and anonymized data here. You may opt out of the collection of your data by unsubscribing (we will remove your data) and contacting them using the instructions on their privacy page https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/.

Cookie Policy

This blog does not share personal information with third parties nor do I store any information about your visit to this blog other than to analyse and optimize your content and reading experience through the use of cookies.

Cookies are a small file placed on your device that allows this blog to recognise and remember you.

Cookies are used in the following ways on this website:

Performance

To track visits to the site and visitor behaviour (e.g. links clicked).  These are anonymous and help me to improve the website over time.  For example I use Google Analytics to track which pages on my site are most popular.  To opt out of these types of cookies, you can install the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-On

Third Party Advertising

Third party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on a user’s previous visits to your website or other websites.

Google’s use of advertising cookies enables it and its partners to serve ads to your users based on their visit to your sites and/or other sites on the Internet.

Users may opt out of personalised advertising by visiting Ads Settings

You can turn off the use of cookies at any time by changing your specific browser settings.

Health Disclaimer

Although I have made every effort to ensure that the information in this blog was correct at the time of publication, I does not assume and hereby disclaim any liability to any party for any loss, damage or disruption caused by errors or omissions, whether such errors or omissions result from negligence, accident, or any other cause.

Advertising Policy

Advertising Content

From time to time I may publish advertising content on the blog including:

  • Sponsored posts
  • Affiliate links
  • Reviews
  • Giveaways

This type of content will be clearly marked as advertising in accordance with regulations.

However, I only advertise products I have tried myself and all thoughts and opinions are my own.

I also host third party advertising on my site using Google Ads.  This will show you personalised ads based on website you have previously visited and may be interested in.  For more information and for how to opt out of personalised ads, see my Cookie Policy.

Advertising helps to cover the cost of my time running my blog and means I can dedicate more time to it.
