What personal data we collect and why we collect it
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.
When comment ratings are enabled we store the rating a user has given to a recipe along with data shown in the comments form.
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.
When user ratings are enabled we store a WPRM_User_Voted_%recipe% cookie (with %recipe% the ID of the recipe) that contains the rating this user has given to a particular recipe. This cookie is used as (one of the) measures to prevent rating spam. These cookies are stored for 30 days. User submitted data is stored indefinitely in the local database.
When user ratings are enabled we store the IP address upon voting. This is used as (one of the) measures to prevent rating spam.
Embedded content and third party services
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.
We use third party pligins WP Recipe Maker for comment ratings and Akismet for anti spam comments. None of these plugins store any of the data collected on their sites.
This service is used to track the usage of this website and provides information such as pageviews, referring websites, and time spent on the site. No personal information is collected.
How long we retain your data
