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.
This site uses Google Analytics to track data on sessions, page views, referring websites (the URL you were at before you came to Annie’s Noms), bounce rate, general geographical information and user demographics. Google Analytics may capture your IP address, but no other personal information is captured.
This site has taken the decision to anonymize analytics, so Google no longer records your full IP address.

For contact form queries, we only keep your personal information if a response is required. If no response is required, we delete your information within 7 working days. If your email does require a response, your personal information will be kept for 30 days and then deleted.
Google Analytics keeps data for 26 months.
Mediavine keeps data for 13 months.

HOW WE PROTECT YOUR DATA
This site uses two factor authentication for administrators to log in and we work hard to protect all data which could be used to identify you. Unfortunately, no data transmission can be 100% secure. Whilst we employ precautions to ensure the security of your information and work hard to ensure third parties we use do the same, we are not responsible for the actions of third parties.
If there are any data breaches on our site, we will immediately notify you.
We do now knowingly collect or store any identifiable information of minors under 16 years of age.

MEDIAVINE PROGRAMMATIC ADVERTISING
The Website uses Mediavine to manage all third-party advertising on the Website. Mediavine serves content and advertisements when you visit the Website, which may use first and third-party cookies. A cookie is a small text file which is sent to your computer or mobile device (referred to in this policy as a “device”) by the web server so that a website can remember some information about your browsing activity on the Website. The cookie may collect information relating to your use of the Website, information about your device such as the device’s IP address and browser type, demographic data and, if you arrived at the Website via a link from a third-party site, the URL of the linking page.
First party cookies are created by the website that you are visiting.

Each internet browser has functionality so that you can block both first and third-party cookies and clear your browser’s cache. The “help” feature of the menu bar on most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new cookies, how to receive notification of new cookies, how to disable existing cookies and how to clear your browser’s cache. For more information about cookies and how to disable them, you can consult the information at www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/.
