WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT AND WHY?

LOG FILES

As with most other websites, we use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used.  A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. The data collected helps us analyze data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs.  We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system after 24 months.

No personal information is stored in these log files.  The information in the log files include your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider, which is the company on your internet bill), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Safari or Chrome, etc), the time you visited our site, and which pages you visited throughout our site.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

COMMENTS

Smack of Flavor collects as little information as possible from users looking to post comments.  We will typically collect a name (either real or alias), personal website (optional), and e-mail address.  None of your information will be shared with third parties. Your name and website may be displayed on the site if you post a comment or a message in the forum.  However, your e-mail address and privacy will always be kept secure.

The Website currently uses the following third-party service providers:

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.

NEWSLETTERS

On the Website, you may subscribe to our newsletter (through Mailerlite), which may be used for advertising purposes. All newsletters sent may contain tracking pixels.
