Who we are
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Cookies – not the type that you eat, I’m afraid (and even those can be very un-baby-friendly!). These are bits of data which are stored on a computer when someone is browsing the Internet through a web browser. They come in handy for people who shop online or help you remember the pages you recently visited, for example.
At Weaningful, we collect personal data such as first name, email address or demographic information through these cookies. What do I do with it? I use it to study how my content is performing over time and to see where my readers are coming from for example, in order to provide better and more tailored content.
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.
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.
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.
Weaningful.com is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program and the Amazon EU Associates Programme, affiliate advertising programs designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk and affiliated sites.
Many posts on my blog contain advertisements or affiliate links, which means I will make a small commission if you buy any products that have been linked to on this blog.
My experiences with a product do not represent the experiences of other people or the quality of the product. They only represent my experiences. Remember to always shop around and read product reviews before making any purchase, in order to be a more informed consumer.
Analytics – When someone visits www.weaningful.com, I use a service called Google Analytics (you can Google it!), to collect log information and details on what each visitor is doing when landing on my blog. This is useful for me to see my most popular posts, my least popular ones and how users interact with my posts after they have read them.
Google does not identify anyone by looking at this data. He can’t point at you particularly and say “You’ve been a bad parent! You’re not getting anything this Christmas!” (phew, thank God for that!)
Who we share your data with
If you sign up through any of the forms on this blog (either hosted or pop-up) to receive a freebie or be kept up to date with the progress of my ebook for example, I collect your email address and possibly your first name too, depending on which form you signed up through. I use that email to send you the freebie and updates regarding new blog posts, tips on weaning, and eventually let you know when the ebook is finally published!
You can definitely opt out at any time by clicking on the Unsubscribe link at the bottom of each of my emails. This will stop all future emails from me to you (I hope I am not that annoying!)
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
Google Analytics is currently set up to store your data for 50 months.
What rights you have over your data
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 to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
