Who we are
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Visitors who upload images to the website, should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
When visitors contact us via our form found at https://kitrusy.com/contact we must collect their name and email in order to effectively respond. In compliance with GDPR, we ask for consent to collect and respond using the name and email address that will be collected as part of the form submission.
If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, comments, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
We use the WP RecipeMaker plugin to optimally display recipes on our site. Bootstrapped Ventures, the developer of WP Recipe Maker, does not have access to any of the data collected by the plugin. This is all stored in our database and is not communicated back Bootstrapped Ventures. When commenting on recipes the plugin stores the rating a user has given to a recipe along with the personal data to which WordPress core has access in our database. When rating a recipe the plugin will store a cookie on the user’s browser that contains the rating this user has given to a particular recipe and separately will store the IP address the vote came from within our database. The cookie and IP address are used as methods to protect our website and our user’s from rating spam on our recipes. With the Recipe Submission feature personal data can be collected, depending on the fields that were added to the form. This can include the user email and name.

This enables us to measure how interested users, like yourself, are in our products and services. The data that is collected in this fashion is done so by Facebook and is subsequently processed and stored by Facebook. This data is shared with us in an anonymous form we reports and dashboards. Facebook may further use this information for other purposes and with other promotions or ads not related or affiliated to our site.

All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
