Comments and Anti-Spam Plug-ins
When visitors leave comments on Small-Pantry.com, we collect the data entered into the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is only so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. Small-Pantry.com currently uses the Akismet anti-spam plug-in. From Akismet:
We collect information about visitors who comment on Sites that use our Akismet anti-spam service. The information we collect depends on how the User sets up Akismet for the Site, but typically includes the commenter’s IP address, user agent, referrer, and Site URL (along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself).
Small Pantry also allows site visitors to use their Gravatar profile image when leaving comments. 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 Terms of Service page is available here: https://en.gravatar.com/site/terms-of-service. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.
If you leave a comment on Small-Pantry.com, you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website via 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 unless deleted by the visitor.
Some cookies help sites understand how their visitors engage with their properties. For example, Google Analytics, a Google product that helps site and app owners understand how people engage with a service, uses a set of cookies to collect information and report site usage statistics without personally identifying individual visitors to Google. ‘_ga’ is the main cookie used by Google Analytics. ‘_ga’ enables a service to distinguish one user from another and lasts for 2 years. It’s used by any site that implements Google Analytics, including Google services.
You can choose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements, a new cookie will be added.
Ads and Other Embeded Content
Pages on this site may occasionally include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, ads, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Any ads placed on Small-Pantry.com are generated automatically through Google AdSense Services. While Small Pantry can control the placement of these ads, the content is automatically generated by Google’s services. To personalize these ads, Google may place and read cookies on your browser, or use web beacons to collect information as a result of ad serving on this website. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).

This blog may contain affiliate links. There is no cost to you, but if you buy something from these links I may earn a small commission, which helps keep my stove hot and small pantry stocked–thank you! Any affiliate links shared are for products that I personally recommend, although I have no control of the quality of service or shipping associated with purchasing these products.
An affiliate link may be an endorsement of the product, but is not an endorsement of the company selling the product. Where possible I will also direct readers to stores that are/support small businesses and treat their employees in a kind and humane way. While I strongly encourage consumers to find alternatives to Amazon, I realize that not everybody has that luxury. This is why I have decided to participate in their affiliate program. Basically, if you are going to buy it on Amazon anyway, I am grateful for the small commission I earn from referring the product to my readers.
