Disclosure and Privacy Policies

Disclosure, Terms Of Use, Privacy, & GDPR

My goal at EmulsifiedFamily.simpleseasonallocal.com is to connect with other families in which one parent (or both) is a chef, line cook, general manager, etc..  Along the way, I also hope to give a glimpse of how restaurant and family life come together to those in the “outside world” (aka not in the restaurant industry).

  • Blogging is my passion and I feel comfortable accepting compensation for my work. I accept advertising and participate in various affiliate programs which provide some income.
  • I am committed to promoting products that I personally use and can recommend without hesitation.
  • My character and integrity are an integral part of who I am as a writer.  Gaining (& keeping) the trust of my readers is at the core of what I do.

This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me, Jennifer Small. This blog accepts forms of cash advertising or other forms of compensation, but does not impact what I say.

Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to me. Accordingly, I have developed this Policy in order for you to understand how I collect, use, communicate and disclose and make use of personal information. The following outlines our privacy policy.

Before or at the time of collecting personal information, I will identify the purposes for which information is being collected.

  • I will collect and use of personal information solely with the objective of fulfilling those purposes specified by me and for other compatible purposes, unless we obtain the consent of the individual concerned or as required by law.
  • I will only retain personal information as long as necessary for the fulfillment of those purposes.
  • I will collect personal information by lawful and fair means and, where appropriate, with the knowledge or consent of the individual concerned.
  • Personal data should be relevant to the purposes for which it is to be used, and, to the extent necessary for those purposes, should be accurate, complete, and up-to-date.
  • I will protect personal information by reasonable security safeguards against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification.
  • I will make readily available to customers information about my policies and practices relating to the management of personal information.

When visiting EmulsifiedFamily.simpleseasonallocal.com, I use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. Meaning, the IP address used to access the site will be logged along with the dates and times of access. This information helps me analyze trends, administer the site, track users movement and gather broad demographic information for internal use. Most importantly, any recorded IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information. That’s to keep us all safe! I only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.

Overall, traffic cookies help me provide you with a better website, by enabling me to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives me access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with me.

I am committed to conducting my business in accordance with these principles in order to ensure that the confidentiality of personal information is protected and maintained.

If you require any more information or have any questions about my privacy policy, please feel free to contact me by email at Jennifer{at}emulsifiedfamily{dot}com.
