Your privacy is of utmost importance to us, and we would like to inform you about our policy for protecting your privacy online. As a business, we DO collect information from you, and we do it in two ways: Information we get from your usage of the system (see Google Analytics) and information you give us

Cookie Use

Cookies are not food (although there are a number of fantastic cookie recipes). Cookies are text files placed on your computer to collect standard information about users in an anonymous form. In order to stay logged in to Fork the Cookbook, cookies must be enabled. At Fork the Cookbook, we also use third party services that use cookies. We enumerate them below:

Google Analytics

We collect data using Google Analytics. We use it to analyze how users use this site, and make decisions to improve the website. Google Analytics uses cookies, which are transmitted to Google, which then compiles statistical reports based on user activity for Fork the Cookbook.

Google does not associate your information with any other data held by Google. Neither will we nor Google link or seek to link the collected anonymized information with the identity of the user. More information about Google's stance on privacy can be found here.

We reserve the right to add additional analytics services in order to provide you a better service. This page will be updated should we do so.

Typekit by Adobe

In order for better presentation to be afforded, we also use Typekit, by Adobe. Typekit enables better typefaces (font) to be rendered on the browser. Typekit also uses cookies. Adobe claims to collect anonymous data for analytics usage. More information about Adobe's stance on privacy can be found here.

Other Third Party Services

We also make use of Gravatar for our user avatars. While it is a third party service, you can be sure that we do not send Gravatar any personally identifiable information. You can read more about Gravatar's privacy policy here.

We will never share any of your private information to any third party except for law enforcement, should the need arise. Your data is safe with us.

A Note on Personally Identifiable Information

We realize that we are storing personally identifiable information by virtue of you providing us those data. We work hard to protect them. Nobody has, and will have access to your email or any personally identifiable information. We do however, require a registered user to provide us with an acceptable username, as to provision a user centric profile page for him/her. Real names will be displayed only on request from the user; otherwise only usernames will be used.
