We know that privacy matters to you, so it’s important that we make it really clear to you what types of personal information we collect at Fork and Foot and how that information is used.
While the terms outlined below are pretty much standard across the industry, you will find that some bloggers fail to disclose their policy up front. We always have been, and we always will continue to be transparent!
We looove cookies, but unfortunately that’s not the type of cookie we’re talking about here!
“Cookies” are pretty simple really. They are pieces of information that can tell a website whether it’s your first time visiting, or whether you’re a regular reader. They don’t contain personal information but if you feel that you don’t like the idea of cookies being stored in your machine then you can easily disable them through your web browser. We’d prefer you leave them switched on (as it stops us annoying you with redundant information), but honestly it’s totally your call!

Like many other web sites, Fork and Foot makes use of log files. This is how we record when someone visits the blog. The information inside the log files typically includes information like internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, the page you visited first/last and the page that sent you to our blog. We can then use this information to analyse trends in how people are using our site (helping us improve the user experience!), administer the site and gather demographic information.
It’s really important to remember that this information is not linked to any information that is personally identifiable.
Information Collection and Use
When you subscribe to our blog we will collect basic information such as your name and email address.
This will allow us (Andrew Strikis and Karen Strikis) to:
- send you the regular blog updates that you’ve requested;
- conduct or administer contests in which you may choose to participate; and/or
- maintain a database of client information.
It’s important to remember that this information will only ever be passed on to a third party with your permission, or if compelled by law.
If you don’t feel comfortable with this policy, then please refrain from using Fork and Foot. It’s also good to know that you can always unsubscribe at any time!
Your two favourite forkers,
Andrew and Karen.
