Like most website operators, The Sticky Kitchen collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The Sticky Kitchen’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how The Sticky Kitchen’s visitors use its website.
The Sticky Kitchen also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our posts. The Sticky Kitchen only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
