What personal data we collect and why we collect it

GDPR Compliance

The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) protection means you have the right to be informed as to how your data is collected and used; to access data about yourself; to ask that data about you be changed or deleted; and to ask that Anita’s Feast ceases to send you email alerts when new articles are published. Anita’s Feast is GDPR compliant.

Comments

If you leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and your 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 (See the Gravatar service privacy policy ). After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Your personal information is not shared, and a commenter’s email address is never displayed publicly.

Subscriptions

For subscribers to Anita’s Feast, we collect name and email address. Subscribing to the Anita’s Feast articles by email means you have opted in, asking to be notified automatically when an article is published. You can unsubscribe at any time either using the link in the emails powered by MailChimp or by contacting Anita’s Feast directly.  Your name and email will be permanently deleted from our mailing list.

Contact forms

Our contact form requests your name and email, to allow us to respond to your message. We retain your contact information only long enough to respond to your query (normally less than 30 days). We do not use the information submitted for marketing purposes.

Cookies

Like most websites, we may use ‘cookies’—an industry standard—to improve your experience on Anita’s Feast. A cookie is a small text file that the site may place on your computer as a tool to remember your preferences. You may, at any time, instruct your internet browser to permanently deny the setting of cookies.

If you leave a comment on Anita’s Feast, you opt-in to save 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.

Website analytics

We track site traffic and webpage usage with cookies, using website analytics tools in keeping with their terms of service. Neither Google Analytics nor StatCounter identifies individual users or associates your IP address with other data they hold. You can find a list of which cookies are used by Google Analytics here. You can opt out of making your site activity available to Google Analytics by installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on Anita’s Feast may include embedded content, e.g. videos, images, articles, etc. Embedded content from other websites treats a viewer/reader in the same way as if you visit the website of origin. The original website 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).

Who we share your data with

Personal data gathered on Anita’s Feast is used only to facilitate subscriptions to articles published on Anita’s Feast. Anita’s Feast does not sell personal data or share your personal 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.

Rights you have over your data

If you 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.

Where we send your data
