At carbgirl.com, we want to be clear to our users about how information is collected and used. We use several Third party services to help provide you with a more pleasurable experience on this website as well as to stay in contact with you via social channels. The information below describes the types of information collected and how it is used.
Information You Provide to Us
You may opt-out of receiving Marketing Messages at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of every newsletter.
If you email us we may retain a record of such email communication, including your email address, the content of your email, and our response.
Information We Collect Automatically
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving 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.
Log Files. When you use the website, our webhost’s servers automatically record certain information in server logs. These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, referring / exit pages and URLs, number of clicks and how you interact with links on the Service, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, mobile carrier, and other such information. Log files help us to monitor, analyze, improve and maintain the Service and to diagnose and fix any Service-related issues.
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.
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.
What 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. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
How We Share Your Information
We may share the information we collect from you with third parties as detailed below.
Blog. This website is a public blog. Any information you include in a comment on our blog may be read, collected, and used by anyone. If your Personal Information appears on our blogs and you’d like it to be removed, please contact us. If we’re not able to remove your information, we’ll let you know why.
Social Media Widgets. Our Websites include social media features, like the Facebook Like button. These features may collect information about your IP address and which page you’re visiting on our site, and they may set a cookie to make sure the feature functions properly. Social media features and widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our site. Your interactions with those features are governed by the privacy policies of the companies that provide them.
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.
Risks Inherent in Sharing Information
We allow you control over where you share Personal Information and we rely on third party services to take reasonable steps to maintain the security. Please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We cannot control the actions of other users with whom you share your content and we are not responsible for third party circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures on our site or third party service used on this site.
Our website is not directed to persons under 13. Carbgirl.com does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register for an account on the Service.
Do Not Track Signals
Some browsers have a “do not track” feature that lets you tell websites that you do not want to have your online activities tracked. We respond to “do not track” signals.
Intellectual property - Use of photos and recipes
You may use one photo from any of my own personal recipes. An obligatory Do-follow link back to the post on our website where it originated is required. Re-posting entire recipes is strictly forbidden as is using photos without properly linking back or presenting any portion of our content as your own.
If your planning on using an image from our website for a roundup post (following the guidelines above), you may also use that same image for social media pins or collages to promote that same post.
Any distribution of content from carbgirl.com beyond what is described herein constitutes copyright infringement. See also Terms and Conditions about this topic.
