Who we are

Welcome to the world of Owls Roost Melt and More! Our cozy little corner on the internet is


Whenever you leave a comment on our site, we gather the information you fill out in the comments form, along with your IP address and browser details, to keep pesky spam at bay.

In case you use Gravatar, an anonymous hash created from your email address may be shared with their service to see if you have a profile picture. Don’t worry, Gravatar has a privacy policy which you can view here: Once we approve your comment, your profile picture will be visible to the public alongside your comment.


Attention all website wizards! If you’re adding images to your site, steer clear of those with embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Why? Peeps who visit your site can nab that data from your pics, and who knows where that could lead!


Hey there! Here’s the lowdown on cookies if you decide to leave a comment on our site or visit our login page. If you comment, you can opt-in for cookies to save your deets (name, email, website). That way you won’t have to type them out again next time you want to leave a comment. These cookies last for a year.

As for our login page, we’ll set a temporary cookie to see if your browser accepts cookies. It’s tossed out once you close your browser and doesn’t have any personal data. If you log in, we’ll save your login deets and screen preferences. Login cookies last for two days and screen preference cookies last for a year. If you hit “Remember Me,” your login sticks around for two weeks. If you log out, the login cookies will be removed.

Lastly, if you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser with the post ID, but no personal data. This cookie only lasts one day.

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.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

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.
