What personal data we collect and why we collect it
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.
If you upload images to the website, you 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.

If you have an account and you log in to this 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.

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.
Who we share your data with
Salt Sugar Spice reserves the right to share any data stored on our website, any of our social media channels, emails, text, instant or direct messaging, etc. with our partners, vendors, collaborators, etc. Basically, by interacting and/or visiting Salt Sugar Spice you are agreeing that all content you choose to share is owned by Salt Sugar Spice and may be reused in any form during the normal course of business, at our discretion.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we 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.

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged or entitled to keep for administrative, legal, business or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service, used in social media, other advertisements or shared with partners, vendors, collaboration efforts, etc.
Your contact information
How we protect your data
Salt Sugar Spice does not store or request any sensitive financial or government type of data. If you’re ever asked for such information from a source that seemingly looks like us, you should immediately question the authenticity of the communication and report the incident to authorities if possible.
Any information we do store, typically authenticated/verified names and email addresses is store behind a password protected firewall and encrypted in secure enterprise IT fashion.
Telling you more than that wouldn’t be too smart on our part 😉
What data breach procedures we have in place
Even though we are a small blog… we know our stuff. That means, yes – everything is hackable, but we are far more secure than your average small blog. In fact, we know every time someone tries to hack in, where they were coming from, most of the time what tools they were using and specifically when they got locked out. We’re even able to triangulate coordinated attempts across geographic areas and map them back to a particular group(s) effort. We also use automated submission software that aggregates and reports malicious behavior across many sites. So the hackers we see trying to break in – yes, you’re being tracked too and we will pursue legal action when lines are crossed.
What third parties we receive data from
Salt Sugar Spice may receive data from any/all social media outlets, industry and collaboration partners, public media streams, news outlets, etc. We sometimes share other’s content and/or use it as inspiration. We NEVER take credit for other’s work. If there is content from other sources on our website or any of our social media channels we will always give credit or, at the very least if an author or creator is unknown, never take credit for the work.
What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data
Salt Sugar Spice uses modern day tools to tailor content to our viewers. We use all the available apps and plug-ins to determine who we’re interacting with, where viewers came from & where they go after leaving SSS, when are the best times of interactions, how people are interacting with or viewing content, etc.
