Privacy policy

Ink Sugar Spice is my personal website/blog, built with a free WordPress.com site (see their privacy policy here) which is applicable to this site. I want to be transparent about the use of information and personal details here. I have not altered any of the default settings regarding the capture of personal information and I do not collect Google analytic information. As such I have kept my privacy policy simple – also I have no real training in this or been able to obtain advice. I’ve written this to the best of my ability and would welcome comments where I need to alter what I’ve written and give more clarity.

I do not share any personal information from people who have signed up for emails, have commented or have sent messages to me/this site with third-parties.

Cookies. I do not store information that is collected from your visit to this website/blog for use other than the site’s automatic processes which include the analyzing of content performance through the use of cookies (set up automatically by WordPress). You can turn off cookies yourself at any time by modifying your Internet browser’s settings or clearing cookies from your cache manually (or automatically by altering preferences) when leaving this site. (You should be able to find this in your browser preferences).

Email sign up. By signing up to emails you have agreed to share your email address with me and Mailchimp in order to receive new post updates and occasional news emails. Use the unsubscribe link in those emails to opt out at any time.

Comments. This site – as with all WordPress sites – keeps comments that have been posted on articles. These comments are visible to anyone viewing the site and will contain any name, username, picture and link to your site (where appropriate) from you when you posted that comment. This will have been obtained by your own blog gravatar or social media account sign in. If you’ve commented in here and want your comment removing you should be able to do this yourself by going back to the same page, or please email me using the form below.

Social media plug ins. There are plug ins on this site that show recent posts for Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest – while these plug ins do not show usernames (of people who have liked or commented on social media) etc, should anyone click through to the corresponding site these will show.

Reused content. I am not responsible for any republishing of my content from this website/blog on other sites or media without my permission, particularly when my content is used out of context. [I do have a disclaimer on my home page that requires people to ask for permission first, but sadly a few people are not that honest and upfront].

I reserve the right to amend this privacy policy without notice (to ensure that I am disclosing all that I should do).


Request comment removal (I will only use this email to reply that the removal is complete, then I will remove the email)
