Who we are

Our website address is: https://thetropicalhomestead.com

We write about personal experiences and observations that are relevant to self-sufficient home living.

We use cookies to personalize the website for you and to analyze the use of our website. You consent to this by continuing your use of this website.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Cookies

We use cookies to ensure that we give you the best experience on our website. This includes cookies from third party advertising cookies that may analyze your use of this site. We are not great fans of the cookie but the internet runs off of them, so it is what it is. We don’t collect or store any visitor data on our side of the screen, and only monitor visitor numbers as time rolls on.

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.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

We do keep track of visitor numbers via google analytics to help guide us on content decisions.

Who we share your data with

As we don’t personally collect any data, we have none to share. However, our third-party partners who help with the display ads do keep data on user behavior and this helps give new visitors a better experience.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

As we don’t have comments enabled at this time for our own time management purposes, there is no data to be concerned about. The above information is only applicable if and when we activate comments on the website.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. Again, as we don’t have comments activated this is not something to be concerned with. If we ever do activate comments this section will be updated to reflect how, what, and where any information is handled.
