Who we are
The Low Iodine Dietitian is a blog managed by a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist.
Our website address is: https://lowiodinedietitian.com.
Like most website operators, LID 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. LID’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use this website. From time to time, LID may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
LID also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. LID 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 blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to LID’s websites choose to interact in ways that require LID to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information gathered depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, LID collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with LID. LID 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.
LID may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, we may monitor the most popular pages on the list25.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. LID may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, LID does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
LID 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 LID’s behalf or to provide services available at LID’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 LID’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. LID 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, LID discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when LID believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of LID, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of our website and have supplied your email address, LID may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with LID and our products. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. LID takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
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.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
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.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Low Iodine Dietitian respects your privacy and uses reasonable technical and administrative measures to protect your personal information against theft, loss, and unauthorized access, including the use of an SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) security certificate and only working with reputable third party companies. Although we always do our best, no system is 100% secure, and therefore, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information and cannot assume liability for improper access to it.
If a data breach was to occur, we will notify you via email as soon as possible on what information may have been breached, what we have done to correct the situation, and what steps you can take to protect yourself moving forward.
