Like most website operators, Love and Leche collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Love and Leche’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Love and Leche’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Love and Leche may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Love and Leche also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on loveandleche.com blogs/sites. Love and Leche only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Love and Leche’s websites choose to interact with Love and Leche in ways that require Love and Leche to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Love and Leche gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at loveandleche.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Love and Leche are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Love and Leche collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Love and Leche. Love and Leche does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Love and Leche may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Love and Leche may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Love and Leche does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Love and Leche discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Love and Leche’s behalf or to provide services available at Love and Leche’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Love and Leche’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Love and Leche will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Love and Leche discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Love and Leche believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Love and Leche, third parties or the public at large.

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.
