Who we are
holisticfoodie.com maintains this Site to provide general information to our visitors. All use of this Site is subject to the following terms and conditions. By accessing and browsing this Site, you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
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.
Name and email address only is collected when a user submits a form via the contact form. Information submitted is never used for marketing purposes.
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.
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.
Google Analytics: this service tracks Website usage and provides information such as referring websites and user actions on the Website. Google Analytics may capture your IP address, but no other personal information is captured by Google Analytics. In fact, this Website has activated the option to anonymize IP addresses, which prevents the collection of personal data from our Google Analytics tracking code. Users can completely block Google Analytics tracking by using Google’s opt-out browser add-on.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
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.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Holistic Foodie is the personal blog of Jaclyn Irwin. All blog posts are based on my personal opinion, and all content is of my own creation, unless I state otherwise. I am not a trained chef, baker, dietician or medical expert. I am a Certified Nutritional Practitioner, otherwise known as a Holistic Nutritionist. Holistic Foodie offers personal experiences and opinions and, as such, will not be held liable for any loss or damages arising from the use of this Website.
From time to time, this Website may publish sponsored content. This will clearly be stated in the opening of the post.
Please be advised that anything I endorse on this blog, even if it is paired with an affiliate link, I am endorsing because I truly think the product is great, it is one that I use, and I want to pass on the information to you. I’ll never endorse products that I don’t personally use. I am not paid to write one way or another, and I choose which products I endorse. Buying products through these links allows for me to maintain and grow Holistic Foodie, and I greatly appreciate your support.
Sometimes some pretty great companies reach out to work together and either compensate me for my time or provide me with free material. I will never endorse a product that I don’t fully stand behind and I will always share with you when a post is sponsored. All opinions are 100% my own.
