Privacy Policy


We value your support and are committed to protecting your privacy. At St. Mary’s Food Bank, we take all reasonable steps to ensure that information provided to us is handled in a secure manner. The following Privacy Policy applies to the St. Mary’s Food Bank Agency Portal and our website address is:

Website Visits

When you visit our website, basic information is collected, including total number of visitors, pages viewed and other non-identifying information. This aggregated information is used to improve our site and make the visitor experience on our website as useful as possible.


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: 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.

We utilize HTTP cookies to store your information in your web browser. An HTTP cookie is a small piece of data sent from a website and stored in the user’s web browser while the user is browsing it. Every time the user loads the website, the browser sends the cookie back to the server to notify the user’s previous activity. If you’d rather not accept cookies, please “decline” upon your visit.

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.

No Collection of PII about Children

We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information (PII) about anyone under the age of 18 without permission from their legal guardian. Please contact us if you believe we have collected information from a child without permission from their legal guardian.

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 Your Data is Sent

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.


We will not discriminate against you for exercising your privacy rights.

Policy Changes

We may revise this Privacy Policy by posting a revised statement in the same location as this Policy or another location within our website.
