What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Personal information protection and privacy
Personal Identification Information
We may collect personal identification information from users in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, when users visit our site, subscribe, leave a comment on the site and in connection with other activities, services, features or resources we make available on our site. We will collect personal identification information from users only if they voluntarily submit such information to us. 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. An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment. When comment ratings are enabled we store the rating a user has given to a recipe along with personal data WordPress core stores.
Embedded content from other websites
We may automatically collect certain information about you and the device with which you access the Website. For instance, when you use plantedandpicked.com, we will log your IP address, operating system type, browser type, referring website, pages you viewed, and the dates/times when you accessed the website.
