Privacy Policy

Last updated on September 12, 2014

Gluten Free Favorite Recipes values your privacy and seeks to take reasonable measures to protect your private information. Below is a listing of what information we collect and how we use this information:

  • Form Data – There are multiple forms on this site, including comment forms and contact forms. When you choose to fill out these forms, you may be providing Gluten Free Favorite Recipes with personally identifying information. In handling your information, we will never intentionally share your name, email address, phone number, or other personally identifying information with others unless you direct us to do so or unless we must trust a third party (e.g. our web host) with that information in order to operate and maintain this website. However, any personal information that you deliberately include in the body of a comment will (obviously) be made public. Also, we require a name to be posted alongside all comments on this website. Whenever you post a comment on this website, we will post whatever name you provide to us alongside your comment. To protect your identity, you are permitted to use an alias when filling out our forms, so long as that alias is not intended to mislead other site visitors.
  • Server Log Data – Information about your visit, your browser, and your computer is sent to the server that hosts Gluten Free Favorite Recipes whenever your web browser requests a page from this website. This information is stored in log files on the server for our future reference. Among the information that we receive is your IP address, the time of your request, and information about the web browser and operating system you use. We do not use any of this information to identify you personally.
  • Traffic Data – This website uses an analytics tool called Piwik to collect information about our visitors. We use this information to understand how our visitors interact with Gluten Free Favorite Recipes and to discover how we can make improvements to the website. Among the information collected by Piwik is your IP address, the time of your visit, information about the web browser, operating system, and device you use, the display size of your computer screen, the name of your Internet service provider, your approximate location, information about the web page that referred you to any given page on our site, and the duration and frequency of your visits. We do not use any of this information to identify you personally, and we will not combine this information with form data or any other data to try to determine who you are. Moreover, Piwik is installed on the same server as Gluten Free Favorite Recipes, which gives us greater control over our traffic data. For this reason, we believe our use of Piwik for analytics is a better safeguard for your privacy than the option of using a Software as a Service analytics solution. When we decide to share traffic statistics with others, we take reasonable measures to ensure that the information shared is limited so that third parties are unable to identify you personally.
  • Cookies – This website may sometimes use cookies to remember your preferences or determine whether you are a new or returning visitor. Cookies are small text files that your web browser stores on your computer so that websites on the internet can remember information about you the next time you visit. Many of the cookies that we use are created by Piwik, an analytics tool that helps us understand visitor interaction with this website. Additionally, we may sometimes have advertisements, social sharing buttons, and other third party content on this site. Third party content often uses cookies; we accept no liability for cookies placed by social sharing buttons, third party advertisements, and other third party content. If you do not want to receive any cookies while visiting this website, you can disable cookies in your web browser settings. However, doing so can cause some websites to not work properly.
  • Other Data – When you provide us with any additional information (via email, for example), we will only use that information as appropriate to serve you and to carry out our responsibilities.

Gluten Free Favorite Recipes will never sell your information to third parties, and we will only share your personal information when necessary to operate and maintain Gluten Free Favorite Recipes or when necessary to comply with the law. We may share anonymous data (such as traffic data) at our own discretion.

In the interest of the privacy and safety of our visitors, we do what we can to keep Gluten Free Favorite Recipes secure. If we catch a visitor or bot engaging in suspicious or malicious activity on this site, we will not hesitate to block the IP address of the offender. We try to keep our software up-to-date and do our best to follow good security practices. Despite this, we make no guarantees about the invulnerability of this website. If you ever find evidence indicating that Gluten Free Favorite Recipes has been exploited, please let us know immediately.

In order to comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, we do not knowingly collect any personal information from children under the age of thirteen. If you are under the age of thirteen, please do not provide us with any personal information through any of the forms or other features on this site. We will not accept any personal information from a visitor to this site if we find out that the visitor is underaged.

Throughout this website, there may be outgoing links to external resources. In addition, there may be various advertisements, affiliate links, social sharing buttons, and other forms of content provided and possibly served by third parties. (These third parties may include advertisers, affiliate networks, social networking sites, partners, and other providers of third party content.) Gluten Free Favorite Recipes makes no guarantees about the privacy measures taken by other sites on the internet, even if the operators of these websites have any kind of contractual relationship with us. These websites may, at their own discretion and in accordance with their own policies, choose to place or retrieve cookies on your computer or collect information about you and your online activities. They may choose to do this while you are browsing their own website, or if they serve their content to visitors of Gluten Free Favorite Recipes (as with some advertising networks and social media sites), they may place and retrieve cookies or collect other information about you as you browse this website. Gluten Free Favorite Recipes accepts no liability for the actions of third party websites, regardless of their affiliation with us. If you are concerned about the practices of a third party website, please read the privacy policy for the website in question (if applicable) to understand how that particular website handles privacy issues.

On occasion, we may make changes to this privacy policy if we deem it necessary. We reserve the right to do this without any prior notice to you. Modifications we make to our privacy policy will go into effect as soon as they are posted. If you are a user of this website, you are responsible for reading this privacy policy on a routine basis to ensure that you continue to agree with our practices.
