Who we share your data with

WP Recipe Maker: Bootstrapped Ventures, the developer of WP Recipe Maker, does not have access to any of the data collected by the plugin. When comment ratings are enabled we store the rating a user has given to a recipe along with the personal data WordPress core stores. 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. When user ratings are enabled we store the IP address upon voting. This is used as (one of the) measures to prevent rating spam. With the Recipe Submission feature personal data can be collected, depending on the fields that were added to the form. This can include the user email and name. When using the reCAPTCHA feature you will be agreeing to their terms of use and privacy policy.

Litespeed-Cache: This site utilises caching in order to facilitate a faster response time and better user experience. Caching potentially stores a duplicate copy of every web page that is on display on this site. All cache files are temporary, and are never accessed by any third party, except as necessary to obtain technical support from the cache plugin vendor. Cache files expire on a schedule set by the site administrator, but may easily be purged by the admin before their natural expiration, if necessary.

Akismet: We collect information about visitors who comment on Sites that use our Akismet anti-spam service. The information we collect depends on how the User sets up Akismet for the Site, but typically includes the commenter’s IP address, user agent, referrer, and Site URL (along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself).

How long we retain your data

Our cookies are stored for 30 days. User submitted data is stored indefinitely in the local database.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise 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.

Affiliate Marketing

I adore blogging, I really do. I love the research, trialling of recipes, shooting them with my camera and writing all about it. The fact that I can real time interaction with my readers and can respond to feedback as it comes, is just so wonderful, it makes this blog a living and breathing piece of work.

The thing is, all those ingredients cost money – and I test each recipe as much I need to in order to be confident enough to publish it, so that could mean a kilo of butter and a dozen eggs before a new cake can hit the blog alone. Lest we forget the cost of running an oven many hours a day and the wear and tear on your kitchen kit! Food photography is a hugely competitive emergent industry and to showcase recipes to their very best so that you the reader keep coming back, a digital camera, a decent lens and decent lighting are essential and are several hundreds, if not thousands of pounds to purchase new. Quality webhosting is a non-negotiable as like with insurance policies, you never know how valuable they are until something breaks, but quality doesn’t come cheap, and nor should it.

To bring all of my recipes to you for free, as opposed to say, selling you cookbooks (what a dream that would be!) or charging for cooking classes, I need to use Affiliate Schemes and advertising on the blog to fund it. This means I put links to products I love and genuinely use in my own kitchen when I am creating your recipes. If you click on those links, I earn a small commission for advertising them here. For instance, I am a participant in the Amazon EU Associates Programme, an affiliate advertising programme designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to

I am first and foremost a home cook and baker. Part of creating new and interesting things to eat at home involves sourcing ingredients and kit online. If I find something helpful, you can be sure I will share it with you, my readers, so you can achieve the same results at home. I want you to trust me and if I give you my opinion, please rest assured it’s because I am 100% behind it. Feel free to drop me a line if you ever want to ask anything, I will always get back to you when a question has been asked; like I said, it’s one of the best parts of blogging.

Much love,

Just Jo xxx
