What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Like most website operators, MKC Candles 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. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use the website. From time to time, we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
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.
When contacting us through our online form, we will collect the necessary information to address your concerns. This will include your name along with an email address so we can get in touch with you. Any additional information is at your discretion within the text box.

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.
When purchasing items through our online store we will collect information such as your name, email, and address. We require these to be able to ship our products to you. We may also collect additional information if your shipping address is different than the billing. In the event you are using someone else’s shipping address, please ensure they authorize our collection of this information.
