What personal data we collect and why we collect it
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 leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
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.
The Favor Stylist uses Google analytics on this website to record information about our visitors. Cookies are utilized by Google to determine how frequently visitors visit each page, where they visit from, how long they are on the site, and whether they’ve been to the site before. We do not link the information we store in cookies to any personally identifiable information visitors submit while on our site. User-level and event-level data associated with cookies is automatically deleted after 26 months.

Your email address and IP used at email subscription opt-in are shared with Mad Mimi in order to provide you with updates from our monthly magazine.
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. You may choose to save your name, email, and website in your browser for the next time you comment; this choice can be selected each time you leave a comment.
The personal information submitted during checkout is passed along to PayPal in order to process your order. The payment details are encrypted and only PayPal has access to that information. Your mailing address, billing address, and email address remain in our records indefinitely. We do not automatically add your email to our list; you must opt-in to receive our monthly magazine.
Email subscribers’ email addresses and signup IP are collected during opt-in and stored at Mad Mimi until you unsubscribe. You can update your subscription details by clicking the “Unsubscribe” or “Preferences” links at the bottom of any of our mailings.
