Privacy Policy

What sort of personal information is collected? 

Names/and or usernames;
Email addresses;
IP addresses; 
website URLS; 
and browser info. 


Some information is collected automatically and others are collected from you commenting or entering your details into an online form. I use the data collected from readers in order to run my website efficiently and to personalise the user experience.

Protecting your data..?

Payment information and credit card details are never asked for. All of your personal information is contained in secured networks and databases and is only accessible to a limited amount of people who have special access to this information. Furthermore, all information is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. I implement a variety of security measures when a user enters or submits their information to maintain the safety of your personal information. 

Sophie Chilton is protected by an online firewall which blocks hacking attempts and security breaches. If there is a breach or security issue I’m emailed immediately by my security provider. If there is a breach I will assess the risk to your personal data and report any significant risks to the correct authorities if necessary.

Content from third parties...?

Sometimes, I may include links to other articles, images or videos here on Sophie Chilton. These websites may collect data, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking and monitor your interaction with that embedded content. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. I, therefore, have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, I seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.

Third party plugins...?

Sophie Chilton uses third-party programs such as Google Analytics and Stat Counter to collect information such as details of traffic and visitor behaviour patterns. I also will check stats on Blogger to gauge a demographic. You can opt out by using the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-on. Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Do I share data? 

No. I do not and will never sell, trade or otherwise transfer information to outside parties, unless required to do so by law or for giveaways where I collaborate with a brand.

Sophie Chilton is backed up regularly, which includes all comments and personal data attached. If you have any further questions, feel free to email me at:
