Privacy Policy

We at mealsbymavis (“we” or “us”) respect your concerns about privacy and understand that your privacy is critically important. This Privacy Policy describes the types of information that is collected through https://www.mealsbymavis.com (the “Site” or “Website”) and how we use and disclose the information.

What Personal Data We Collect and Why We Collect it

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the Site, we collect the data shown in the comments form as well as 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. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

If you have an account and you log in to the Site, 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.

How Long We Retain Your Data
