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.

Email Addresses

We may collect your email address, but only if you voluntarily provide it to us. This may occur, for example, if you sign up to receive an email newsletter, leave a comment, or enter a promotion. We will use your email address for the purposes for which you provided it to us. You may opt-out and/or unsubscribe from such email communications at any time by clicking the “unsubscribe” button in the email.

For example, if you sign up for Rainbow Recipes newsletter, you will receive notification of new blog posts, special updates, the newest recipes or tips and occasional news regarding the website or other brand-related products or services that we believe may be of interest to you.

Your email address may also be shared with the technology provider we use in connection with the purposes for which you provided it. For instance, we use Mailchimp to deliver our email newsletters. Information provided is transferred to Mailchimp for processing in accordance with their Privacy Policy and Terms.

Who we share your data with


When someone visits https://the-rainbow-recipes.com/ we use a third-party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way that does not identify anyone. We do not make and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.

We may use your personally-identifying information for a variety of business purposes, such as creating a better user experience for the website/ blog, diagnosing and troubleshooting malfunctions on the blog, better understanding how the website is used, and making personalised recommendations to you.

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.

In case you participate in a program via our website we will delete the personal information provided as part of that program within a reasonable time after its completion (e.g. six months after completion will normally be considered reasonable unless we have lawful grounds to retain some of the information for longer (e.g. if necessary for validation or to comply with record-keeping obligations)) Should you have any questions please contact the author athi@the-rainbow-recipes.com.
