PRIVACY POLICY

This Privacy Policy pertains to my personal food blog, My Island Bistro Kitchen, found online at www.myislandbistrokitchen.com.

This Privacy Policy describes the personal and tracking information collected through this website at www.myislandbistrokitchen.com, and how that information is collected and used.

By visiting and/or using My Island Bistro Kitchen’s food blog, you are consenting to the information collection and accepting the use practices described in this Privacy Policy, which may be modified from time to time by me, as the blog owner, without notice. If you do not agree to this policy, please do not continue your visit to this food blog. Your continued visit and/or use of My Island Bistro Kitchen food blog will be deemed your acceptance of this Privacy Policy.

Information Collected and How It is Used

The information collected falls into two categories: (1) information you, the visitor, supply when you subscribe or register to receive emails from My Island Bistro Kitchen and/or when you comment on a posting on the food blog, and (2) tracking information collected as you navigate through this blog site.

1) Personal Identifying Information

In operating the blog site, My Island Bistro Kitchen may include subscription/registration options and comment forms, that ask users to provide their names, e-mail addresses, and/or other contact information.

This site may include a “Subscribe to this Blog by Email” feature. Should this feature be activated, you will have the opportunity to voluntarily provide your email address which may be used to notify you of information about the blog such as, for example, notification of when a new entry (e.g., story, recipe, etc.) has been published to the blog. It may also be used to inform you of changes or other important information related to the food blog. If you register your email with My Island Bistro Kitchen’s food blog as a subscriber, you need to be aware that this constitutes your full consent to receive emails from My Island Bistro Kitchen. If this feature is activated, you will also have the option of unsubscribing to the blog by contacting the blog’s owner and asking to be removed from the subscription list. You also need to be aware that if/when the “Subscribe to this Blog by Email” feature is active, the subscriber’s email will be stored on a computer server and, by providing your email address, you are consenting to this practice.

Should you choose to comment on any entry published to this blog, you also need to be aware that your name (or user name) will appear publicly with the comment if the comment has been approved by the blog’s moderator for publication and, by submitting any comments, you are giving your consent for this to occur. You should further be aware that any personal information you submit in the comments section on My Island Bistro Kitchen’s site may be read, collected, or used by other users of, and visitors to, this blog site, including anonymous visitors. If you choose to leave or submit a comment, you are consenting to this practice.

Please note that, as of the date of publication of this Privacy Policy (June 29, 2014), the “Subscribe to this Blog by Email” feature has been disabled even though there may still appear the option to enter an email address. Please do not register your email address on My Island Bistro Kitchen’s food blog site at this time as the subscription feature has been disabled. Email addresses are not being retained at this time. Due to a technological problem, the “Subscribe to this Blog by Email” feature may still appear on my home page despite that it is not active at present.

2) Tracking Information

This is statistical data, in aggregate form, that analyses user behaviour and characteristics to measure visitor traffic and usage trends that help My Island Bistro Kitchen improve its blog.
