Who is behind blog from OUR kitchen?
We are simply two people, living in a house in Toronto, who like good food – EJM and TPH. This is neither a business nor is it an organization. Our website address is: http://etherwork.net/blog.
Your Privacy and Personal Data
Of course, your privacy is very important. Here at blog from OUR kitchen these are the fundamental principles that are followed:
- Your personal information will never be shared with anyone, except to comply with the law or protect my rights.
- Your personal information is not stored unless it is required for the on-going operation of the site.
I love seeing your responses and/or questions. But please note that your personal information (neither your e-mail address, nor your IP address) will ever be displayed or shared by either of us.
When leaving a response at blog from OUR kitchen you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are solely for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another response. These cookies will last for one year.
When anyone leaves responses at blog from OUR kitchen, we collect the data shown in the discussion form, as well as the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string. This is to help with spam detection.
For posts with responses that now have further discussion disabled, only the administrator (that would be me, ejm) of blog from OUR kitchen is able to see the email and IP addresses attached to each response. However, unless you have specifically asked for email correspondence, you will never be contacted by us. Nor will your email address ever be shared.
If you have left responses here, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data that is held about you, including any data you have provided to blog from OUR kitchen. You can also request that we erase any of your personal data that is held here. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes. If you do make such a request, it will be fulfilled as soon as humanly possible.
Articles on blog from OUR kitchen may include embedded content (e.g. YouTube videos, Flickr images, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
A security plugin is run at blog from OUR kitchen. In order to establish and maintain security for all users, a firewall is deployed. It sits locally on blog from OUR kitchen‘s server and scans all traffic against an ever-changing set of security rules.
In the event of a visit breaking one of these rules, the firewall shares the IP address and other non-personal data with its developer, Defiant, so they can protect other people from malicious IP addresses. This data will usually be deleted after 90 days but it may need to be extended in some cases (if there is still malicious activity for that data in which case it is kept until no longer malicious.)

“Do Not Track” Settings. Because we track website usage information as described above, your selection of the “Do Not Track” option provided by your browser may not have any effect on our collection of certain information. The only way to completely “opt out” of the collection of information through cookies or other tracking technologies is to actively manage the settings on your browser to delete and disable cookies and other tracking/recording tools. However, getting a “Do Not Track” signal to work as you might want is difficult. Using browsers as an example, not all tracking technologies can be controlled by browsers; unique aspects of your browser might be recognizable even if you disable a tracking technology; not all settings will necessarily last or be effective; even if a setting is effective for one purpose, data still may be collected for another; and even if one website observes a “Do Not Track” signal, that website may not be able to control other websites.
