What is Wizard Fruit?

Wizard Fruit is a health blog written by me: Joseph Whittaker. I am the sole author of this website. Wizard Fruit is run and maintained by me, and all posts and content are also written by me. For contact information please see the contact page. Alternatively, you can contact me with privacy specific concerns at privacy@wizardfruit.com.


Your privacy is important to me. The Wizard Fruit website only collects only the bare minimum personal data for website functioning and asks for nothing that is unnecessary such as your gender or age. The data is not shared with anyone, except to comply with the law or protect my rights.


When a user leaves a comment, this website will collect the information entered into the comment form; and their IP and browser user agent string to help fight spam. A hash, which is an anonymized string created from your email address may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it.  The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible on the website next to your comment. Comments are also run through anti-spam protection services.

Users also have the option to save their name and email address in cookies, so the user does not have to fill in these details the next time they comment.


For details of other cookies used please click the padlock in the web address bar. If you do not wish such cookies to be used please set your browser to refuse the usage of cookies, and in addition to this, do not click ‘accept’ on the cookie policy pop up at the bottom of the page.


If you choose to subscribe to my newsletter, your email address will not be shared with anyone and is stored securely by Mail Chimp, a well known reputable email marketing service. Their privacy policy can be found here.

How long is my data retained?

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.

What rights do I have over my data?

If you have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data the Wizard Fruit website holds about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request deletion of the personal data Wizard Fruit holds about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

How is my data protected?

This site has an SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate (see the padlock in the URL bar). This means that all data entered on this website is sent through an encrypted link, ensuring the data between the browser and web server remains private.

Privacy Policy Changes

This Privacy Policy may undergo changes in the future, as this website expands. It is your responsibility to check this policy for any changes. Your use of the website after such changes have occurred will constitute acceptance of these changes, whether you have reviewed them or not.
