WHO WE ARE
‘Who we are’ is actually just I, Antya Markin, site owner and one-person-who-does-everything, from research to recipe development, testing, product sourcing, tasting, photography, publishing and blog maintenance.
My website address is: http://queenketo.com. It is referred to as ‘this site’ heron.
NEWSLETTERS and OTHER COMMUNICATIONS
The name and email address you provide in order to subscribe are used solely for the purpose of personalising the emails that are sent to you. When you subscribe to the Newsletter you also give me permission to send you other promotional communications, including third party offers, that I feel are relevant and genuine.
To send you these communications, I use an internal plug-in, which means that your data isn’t stored anywhere else other than on this site’s database and hosted servers.
To stop hearing from me, you can simply click on the unsubscribe link that is provided in every communication. Your name and address will thereafter remain on this site’s database for the sole purpose of statistical analysis. If you wish for your data to be deleted, simply drop me an e-mail and your wish will be my command.
When you leave a comment on this site, I collect the data shown in the comments form, and also your IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
When you post a comment, you provide your chosen name and email address, but the latter will not be viewable to the public. The name and address you supply in order to post comments will be stored on this site’s internal database together with your IP (Internet Protocol) address and used for analytical purposes only.
Should you wish for me to erase this data, let me know and I will oblige. Do bear in mind that the comment(s) you posted will also vanish along with your personal data.
I do not agree with auto opt-ins. You will always be required to specifically opt-in for whatever I offer, as and when I offer it.
COOKIES and WEB BEACONS
The WordPress platform that provides this site’s functionality installs cookies by default.
If you leave a comment on this 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.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, a temporary cookie will be set up 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, several cookies are set up 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.
Third party advertisements are allowed on this site to recover part of the costs associated with running a niche recipe blog. Some of these advertisers (like Google through the Google AdSense program) may use tracking technology like cookies and web beacons when they advertise on this site, and gather information that may include your IP (Internet Protocol) address, your ISP (Internet Service Provider), your web browser, and your search preferences. This strategy tends to be used for geotargeting purposes (for example, to show someone in London a local home delivery service ad) or to display certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing travel ads to someone who habitually visits travel sites).
You can choose to disable cookies in your browser settings – for example, in Safari, by clicking on ‘Preferences’, then ‘Privacy’. However, this may negatively affect your browsing experience on this site as well as many other sites.
In line with common practice, I collect and use the data contained in the log files that are automatically created when a visitor browses this site. By browsing this site, you give explicit consent for me to collect and use such data.
The information in the log files include your IP (Internet Protocol) address, your ISP (Internet Service Provider), the web browser (e.g. Safari) that you used when you visited this site, your geographical area, the time of your visit and which pages you viewed on this site.
This data is used to analyse web traffic, world locations and trends, mainly to help me understand my audience a little better and improve my services, or to enable me to provide relevant answers to enquiries/comments (for example when replying to someone asking where to buy lupin flour, I may look at their geographical area to indicate a suitable, local supplier).
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.
SOCIAL MEDIA, ADVERTISERS and OTHER EXTERNAL LINKS
This site does not currently share data with partners, cloud-based services, payment processors or third party service providers. Should data sharing become necessary in the future, this policy will be updated accordingly and you will be notified.
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on this site (if any), I also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. 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.
YOUR RIGHTS OVER YOUR DATA
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data that is held about you, including any data you have provided. You can also request that your personal data be erased. This does not include any data I am obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
This site is hosted by WPBlogHost. The security provided by the hosting service includes intrusion detection and prevention of malicious activity, enhanced perimeter protection, blacklist for malicious plugins known to cause security issues, added security layers to prevent hackers from stealing log-in credentials, and automatic WordPress updates to ensure reduced vulnerability and hacker attacks. sFTP/SSH encryption ensures that data transmission from this site’s computers to the remote files servers remains protected and safe.
Daily backups and one-click restoration of files means that, in the event of an attack whereby visitors’ personal data might become compromised, I can quickly alert you of accidental loss, destruction or damage that may have occurred.
Any concerns in relation to this policy should be addressed to:
