Who we are

Our website address is https://thelunchride.com and we are a small team, possibly a one-person-show, that loves shiny new things.


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.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) 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 to the public in the context of your comment.


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.


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.

If and when we place third-party advertising on our website, those services may save one or more cookies on your browser. But we don’t plan on doing this through traditional ad networks that track you, so…non-issue.

In addition to what’s mentioned below, we use Google Analytics to track site traffic, which places some cookies in order to measure pageviews, bounce rates, and understanding how you’re using our site so that I can make it better.

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 had 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.

For example, if you watch an embedded YouTube video, then YouTube will use Cookies to collect some statistics about which videos were watched, who watched them, etc. We do not see this data.

Who we share your data with

If and when we place third-party advertising on our website, those services may collect non-identifying information via cookies.

If you subscribe to our newsletter, we may occasionally send you sponsored or promotional content, however we do not share your email addresses or any personally identifying data (which we don’t intentionally collect anyway) with any third-party except as required by law.

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, delete, or (with some limitations) edit their personal information at any time. 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.

We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time, and use of this website in any way constitutes your acceptance of these policies and practices.
