Who We Are
What Information We Collect and Why We Collect It
First, when visitors leave comments on the Website, we collect the data shown in the comments form and the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
Third, when comment ratings are enabled, we store the rating a user has given to a recipe along with the personal data WordPress core stores.
We store the Internet Protocol ("IP") address when user ratings are enabled upon voting. This is used as (one of the) measures to prevent rating spam.
Google Analytics also collects IP addresses to provide and protect the security of the service and to give website owners a sense of which country, state, or city in the world their users come from (also known as “IP geolocation”).
Visitors can download and extract any location data from images on the website. However, if uploading images to the website, you should avoid doing so with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included.
Contact & Subscriber Forms
We use Mailchimp to collect and store your email address when you contact or subscribe to our Website. Mailchimp outlines their use of your data and anonymized data here. You may opt out of collecting your data by unsubscribing (we will remove it) and contacting them using the instructions on their privacy page.
We may collect your email address only if you voluntarily provide it to us. This may occur, for example, if you sign up to receive an email newsletter. Also, to send you occasional emails regarding the Website or other products or services that we believe may be of interest to you.

If you leave a comment on our site, you may opt-in to save 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.
Similarly, 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.
