  1. Information that you provide to me directly, such as in the situation where you complete an online form or send me a message via our website;
  2. Information that you provide when leaving a comment; certain information like your name may be publicly visible. Your email address will never be available publicly.
  3. Information that is automatically collected about you and the device with which you access this website, sent to me by your computer’s internet browser such as your computer’s technical address (or ‘IP address’) or information about which particular internet browser you are using, operating system type, referring website, pages you viewed, and the dates/times when you accessed the website. We may also collect information about actions you take when using the website, such as links clicked.
  4. Information about how you use my website or my services, such as which pages you visit, how frequently you visit the site and so forth.

I may ask readers to provide personal information when communicating with me or subscribing to the newsletter. This information is only used to communicate with you. You may request to be removed at any time. Readers under the age of 16 (the EU age of consent) must receive parental affirmative consent.

Except when required by law, we will not sell, distribute, or reveal your email addresses or other personal information without your consent; however, we may disclose or transfer personal information collected through the Website to third parties who acquire all or a portion of our business, which may be the result of a merger, consolidation, or purchase of all or a portion of our assets, or in connection with any bankruptcy or reorganization proceeding brought by or against us.

Cookies – This site uses cookies. A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Some are essential to the operation of the site, while others give me insights into how the site is used and allow me to personalize my services. Only essential and non-personal cookies are set when you first visit the site, but by continuing to use the site, I will set some non-essential cookies. Visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using this website with the drawback that certain features of the website may not function properly without the aid of cookies. This website may contain links to other websites. Please be aware that I am not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites.

Third Party Information

Google Analytics – This service tracks website usage and provides information such as referring websites and user actions on the website. Google Analytics may capture your IP address, but no other personal information is captured by Google Analytics.

Mailchimp – This service is used for delivery of email updates and newsletters. I store your name and email address for purposes of delivering such communications because you opted in for that service.  Please refer to Mailchimp’s privacy policy for further information.

Facebook – I use social media cookies from Facebook on this site. The cookies are placed by Facebook, and I use them to understand the effectiveness of social media campaigns. If you are logged into Facebook when you view my site, then Facebook will know when you visit my site. I do not have any access to the detail of that personal data, as you have consented to share it with Facebook, not me. I just get to see anonymized data about the numbers of people who have responded to my advertising or other social media activity.

Advertisement

Display Ads – I may use third-party advertising companies to serve content and advertisements when you visit the Website, which may use cookies, as noted above.

Retargeted Ads – From time to time, the Website may engage in remarketing efforts with third-party companies, such as Google, Facebook, or Instagram, in order to market the Website. These companies use cookies to serve ads based on someone’s past visits to the Website.

Affiliate Program Participation – The Website may engage in affiliate marketing, which is done by embedding tracking links into the Website. If you click on a link to an affiliate partnership, a cookie will be placed on your browser to track any sales for purposes of commissions.

CulturEatz is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and links to Amazon.com.  As part of this Amazon Associates program, the Website will post customized links, provided by Amazon, to track the referrals to their website. This program utilizes cookies to track visits for the purposes of assigning commission on these sales.

Newsletters – On the Website, you may subscribe to my newsletter, which may be used for advertising purposes. All newsletters sent may contain tracking pixels. The pixel is embedded in emails and allows an analysis of the success of online marketing campaigns.

Because of these tracking pixels, I may see if and when you open an email and which links within the email you click. Also, this allows the Website to adapt the content of future newsletters to the interests of the user. This behavior will not be passed on to third parties.
