What personal data we collect and why we collect it
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.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
Our contact form is located at https://cookilicious.com/contact. This form is served by the "Contact Form by BestWebSoft" WordPress plugin. You can visit their website at https://bestwebsoft.com/. We will collect your name and email address, but will most likely use it to respond to your queries/concerns. Your email address in this particular case will not be added to any list - it will remain as part of the email thread with our website. We may contact you using your email address at a future date if we think our interests align and we could work together - but we will not spam you.
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.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

If you select "Remember Me", your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites

Our website uses WordPress plugins or code for services like Facebook pixel, Google Analytics , Amazon Affiliates, WordPress (among others) to capture data like unique visitors, page visits etc. which is then used to analyze website performance and user trends so we can serve our readers with better content while optimizing the running of our website.

Who we share your data with
Cookilicious does not share or sell your data with anyone. The email addresses and first and last names we collect are stored on MailChimp but are used by Cookilicious only.
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.
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.
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.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

How we protect your data
Cookilicious is a secure site and we host software that checks the site regularly for malware and prevent any kind of malicious hacking attempts. Even so, we do host links to third parties like ad vendors and use WordPress plugins that to the best of our knowledge are secure. Please note that no website is 100% secure, and we employ what measures are within our means.
