Data submitted when making a comment may be stored indefinitely.

NOTIFICATION OF REPLIES TO COMMENTS

Supplying your email address when comments will not automatically subscribe you to notifications of any replies to your comment. If you wish to be notified of any replies to your comment then you need to opt in by selecting “Replies to my comments” in the drop down below the comment form. You can also subscribe to comment replies without leaving a comment.

CONTACT FORM

Details supplied via the contact form will only be used for the purpose of responding to the message.

COOKIES

The website uses cookies to store visitors’ preferences, record user-specific information on what pages users access or visit, ensure that visitors are not repeatedly sent the same banner ads, customise website content based on visitors’ browser type or other information that the visitor sends. Cookies may also be used by third-party services, such as Google Analytics, as described herein.

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.

Users may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies, by the website, by using a corresponding setting of your internet browser and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. However, if users deactivate the setting of cookies in your Internet browser, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.

ADVERTISING

Display Ads

We may use third-party advertising companies to serve content and advertisements when you visit the website, which may use cookies, as noted above.

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 for an affiliate partnership, a cookie will be placed on your browser to track any sales for purposes of commissions.

Charlotte’s Lively Kitchen 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 customised links, provided by Amazon, to track the referrals to their website. This program utilises cookies to track visits for the purposes of assigning commission on these sales.

Newsletters

On the website, you may subscribe to our 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, we 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 behaviour will not be passed on to third parties.

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.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Disclosure

Advertising

I do include some paid advertising on the site. This shouldn’t be taken as an endorsement for any product advertised.

Paid product reviews

I may be compensated to provide an opinion on a product, service, website or other topic. Even though I receive compensation for these posts, I will always give my honest opinions, findings, beliefs or experiences on those topics or products. All opinions expressed on this blog are my own. I will also write reviews for which I’ve not received any compensation (just because I want to!) so where I have received compensation for writing a post it will be made clear.

Affiliate Sales

I do link with affiliate programmes, this means if you follow a link I have provided to a product and then go on to purchase from that site, I will receive a percentage of the cost. I  will never provide a link to a product just because it’s part of an affiliate programme.
