Privacy Policy

Who we are

Crust Kingdom is owned and operated by Tom Hambly. This privacy policy will explain how Crust Kingdom uses the personal data we collect from you when you use our website. This information, which is typical of most websites, helps us to improve the experience and gain insight to how the website is used.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

User Submitted

Personal data can be collected when submitted by the user, such as in the contact form. This includes name and email address so that we can return contact. Any further communication via email may gather more information where necessary.

Comments

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.

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: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Cookies

Cookies can be deleted or disabled from your browser at any time.

If you leave a comment on our 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, 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, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

The website uses Google Analytics, a website analytics tool provided by Google Inc. to track user activity and acquisition using a cookie. This information is used by our website operators to improve the user experience by monitoring browsing behaviour on the website.

Affiliate Marketing

Crust Kingdom is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com and other Amazon websites. Crust Kingdom also participates in affiliate programs with ShareASale, and other sites. Crust Kingdom is compensated for referring traffic and business to these companies.

These third parties may serve content and advertisements, collect information directly from visitors, and place or recognize cookies on visitors’ browsers.

Ads

Crustkingdom uses the Ezoic advertsing platform to display ads to users. The principle activities of this third party are website analytics, personalization and hosting. More information on how your data is processed with Ezoic can be found in the Ezoic service privacy policy.

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.

The right to access – You have the right to request Our Company for copies of your personal data. We may charge you a small fee for this service.

How your data is stored

Your data is safely secured in encrypted locations around the world. Secured servers are used by our company to ensure proper data storage.

Transmission of data on the internet is inherently insecure.  We do not and cannot guarantee security of information collected electronically or transmitted; however, we take reasonable steps to provide security.  As a result of our inability to guarantee safety, you are submitting information to us at your own risk.  The only way to be truly safe is to not transmit any data to Crust Kingdom.
