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.

When you place an order through your account, your credit card information will be used through a secure third-party processor (Stripe) to collect payment.

Your contact information will be used to fulfill any active order that you have placed. In some cases, this may mean sharing your contact information with suppliers that ship directly to our customers.

Rosette Fair Trade and/or The Rosette Network will follow up by email shortly after you receive your order, to ensure that you are satisfied with your purchase. However, placing an order does not mean that you will continue to receive communications from us or our suppliers without your express consent.

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.
