What Data We Collect

Website Visitors

The normal operation of the Website may result in the capture and logging of traffic data from a visitor to the Website or subscriber to the RSS feed. This includes information such as the page visited, browser type, referring site, date and time of each visitor request and the Internet Protocol address of the requestor.

We only collect this data where it is in our legitimate interests to do so to maintain the performance and security of the Website. The log data is automatically deleted after 3 days.

Email Subscribers

If you choose to sign up for the mailing list you supply us with your email address.

When you subscribe to the mailing list we send you an email asking you to confirm your subscription. We only send you further emails after you have provided your consent by confirming you signed up for the mailing list.

When we send you an email it may include a web beacon that tells us if the email was opened and if any links in the email were clicked. Our email provider (ConvertKit) collects your approximate geographic location, to the nearest city or region, based on your Internet Protocol address when you subscribe. This is used to allow the sign up process to be customized to meet local laws.

Every email we send includes an unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email so you can remove yourself from the mailing list. You can also withdraw your consent at any time by emailing us at support@useyourloaf.com.

Cookies

The cookies used by this website are described in our cookie policy. Most web browsers provide some way to control and block cookies. You can find out more about cookies and how to manage them at www.aboutcookies.org or www.allaboutcookies.org.

We use open rates for emails to help us understand how useful our content is and to maintain the email list.
