Cookies are used on this website to collect information on your browsing behaviour. Cookies are placed on the device you are viewing this site on and remember when the device accesses this website. These cookies do not collect personal information such as name or address but monitor your behaviour whilst browsing. These cookies and the information they collect help improve this site for yourself and future visitors by monitoring traffic of users and success of particular content.

Google Analytics

When someone visits this website, we use Google Analytics to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We 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. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website. Google’s Privacy Policy is available to read here.

User comment data

Disqus is an external commenting system utilised on this website which collects personal information including your email address, first name and last name. The data collected by Disqus is stored by them and you can find their Privacy Policy here.

Mailing Lists

As part of the registration process for our monthly subscription email, we collect your email address, first name and last name. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about stuff you’ve asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. We don’t rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.

We use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. For more information, please see MailChimp’s Privacy Policy. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time by clicking the ‘unsubscribe’ link at the bottom of any of our emails or by emailing me directly at michelle@bellemichelle.com.
