From time to time, we may use anonymous data, which does not identify you alone, or when combined with data from other parties. This type of anonymous data may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses. Examples of this anonymous data may include analytics or information collected from cookies.

PUBLICLY VISIBLE INFORMATION

If you leave a comment on the Website, your name may be publicly visible. Your email address will never be available publicly. At your option, you may also add a link to your website, which will also be publicly accessible.

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.

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.

Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a web analytics tool that I use to help understand how visitors engage with this website. In order to provide me with information on visitor numbers and trends (e.g. popular posts, countries where visitors visit from) Google Analytics uses log files to learn about when, from where, and how often traffic flows to this site, allowing me to create a better user experience for you. Cookies and log files are small pieces of information about each visitor which are stored by I Love Porridge to enable me to track broad trends such as the times when users prefer to visit; posts that were most popular with users; and countries from which users visited.  None of this information is linked to anything that personally identifies the person who is visiting.

 

The information in the log files include:

  • Internet Protocol addresses (IP)

  • Types of browser

  • Internet Service Provider (ISP)

  • Date and time stamp

  • Referring and exit pages

  • Number of clicks made on this site

It reports website trends using cookies and web beacons without identifying individual visitors. You can read more about how it works and what information it collects at the Google Analytics Privacy Overview.
