Privacy Notice & Cookie Policy

As the owner and writer of Mum to a Monster, I am committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of all visitors to my web site and subscribers to my blog. Here you’ll find information on how we treat data that we collect from visitors to our website, or when someone subscribes to my blog.

Visitors to my website

When someone visits mumtoamonster.com I use a third-party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. I do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. I do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting my website. You can find more information on how cookies are used on this website in the Cookies Policy below.

If I do want to collect personally identifiable information through my website, we will be up front about this. I will make it clear when I collect personal information and will explain what I intend to do with it.

The information that you give to me directly on the site (e.g. within comments on blog posts such as your name and email address) is never shared or added to any mailing lists. If you subscribe to my blog using the sign up box in the sidebar your email address will only ever be used to notify you when I publish a new post. It will not be used for any other purpose.

My website also includes links to websites I recommend or work with on a collaborative basis, and provides access to products and services offered by third parties, whose privacy policies I do not control. Some of the links I provide are “affiliate links.” This means if you click on the link and purchase the item connected to that link, I will receive an affiliate commission at no cost you. When you access another website or purchase third-party products or services through the Site, use of any information you provide is governed by the privacy policy of the operator of the site you are visiting, or the provider of such products or services.

I will never sell, barter, or rent your email address to any unauthorised third-party.

You may request a copy of any information I hold about you at any time, or request to have this information removed by emailing me on mumtoamonster@gmail.com

Cookie Policy

This site uses cookies – small text files that are placed on your machine to help the site provide a better user experience. In general, cookies are used to retain user preferences, store information for things like shopping baskets, and provide anonymised tracking data to third-party applications like Google Analytics. Google analytics is a site which allows me to see how well my website is performing in terms of audience. It tells me things like how many people have visited my site, how many of those people are coming back, and where they are in the world. All of this information helps me to continue to create content that is relevant to the people reading it.

As a rule, cookies will make your browsing experience better. However, you may prefer to disable cookies on this site and on others. The most effective way to do this is to disable cookies in your browser.
