What personal data we collect and why we collect it

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.

When user ratings are enabled we store the IP address upon voting. This is used as (one of the) measures to prevent rating spam.

When comment ratings are enabled we store the rating a user has given to a recipe along with the personal data WordPress core stores.

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.

Contact forms

When visitors send a message via the contact form, we collect the data shown in the contact form. The data collected will be used only to communicate with you. The contact form also includes Google reCAPTCHA v2 checkbox.  Some spam blocking methods may be used by Google to block robots. More information about reCAPTCHA v2 is available here: https://policies.google.com/privacy

When user ratings are enabled we store a WPRM_User_Voted_%recipe% cookie (with %recipe% the ID of the recipe) that contains the rating this user has given to a particular recipe. This cookie is used as (one of the) measures to prevent rating spam. WPRM_User_Voted Cookies are stored for 30 days. User-submitted data is stored indefinitely in the local database.

These data are stored for 1 month from the last update date.

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.

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.

If you send a message from the contact form, the data you enter is stored for one year for communication.

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.

How we protect your data

Necessary precautions are taken in terms of software and hardware for the confidentiality of user data.

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.
