Legal Disclaimer; No Attorney-Client Relationship
While we strive to bring up interesting developments from the area of compliance and international trade for your reading pleasure and information, nothing that you find in the Compliance Kitchen is legal, business or other professional advice – and you should not deem or use it as such. The Compliance Kitchen and the contributors to this blog express their personal opinions and research findings and conclusions and will not be responsible for any loss or damage, actual or threatened, that our readers or followers may sustain as a result of their reliance on information in this blog. There will not be any attorney-client relationship established by your use of this website.
We hope you will be informed, inspired and perhaps entertained by our posts, but be reasonable and consult an attorney or suitable professional before making any decisions based on, or related to, our posts. Our contributors give you the permission to distribute their posts for any lawful purpose, so long as you remember to attribute the posts to the Kitchen or individual contributors, as the case may be.

Personal Data Collection
To keep it simple, we opted not to allow for comments from visitors. This way, you do not leave any PII (personally identifiable information) as defined in the GDPR, and we therefore cannot collect any.
If we decide to open up the comments option and you leave a comment on our site, you will be able to 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 then last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
For those with editor or publisher access, if you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
What rights you have over your data
If a site allows for creating an account, or for leaving 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
Normally, visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. Since we didn’t open up the comments functionality, this is not a concern.
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 you have visited the other website.
This is a WordPress site. By default WordPress does not collect any analytics data. However, many web hosting accounts collect some anonymous analytics data, such as IP address. We use a statistics function to show us how many visitors and visits the site has and which posts had the most views. This allows us to understand what our readers seem to enjoy most in the Kitchen and tune our posts accordingly. The statistics data does not give us any information that we could identify you by. We do not even utilize the geographic function, to tell us where our readers hail from.
Who we share your data with
Since we don’t sell anything and don’t allow for setting up an account or putting in comments, we do not obtain your information and we do not share it. As for WordPress, by default WordPress does not share any personal data with anyone.
