What Information Do We Gather About You?

The information we gather about you depends on the context. By and large, it’s information about you that can personally identify you — either on its own or when combined with other information.

The following describes the information we collect and how we obtain it.

A) Information Collected Through Services.

  1. Information That You Voluntarily Give Us
    • For User-Generated Content:

      We offer you the ability to post content that other users can read (e.g., comments or recipe reviews). Anyone can read, collect and use any personal information that accompanies your posts. We do not have to publish any of your content. If the law requires us to take down, remove or edit your personal information, we will comply to the required extent.

    • For Contests, Sweepstakes and Special Offers:

      When you sign up for these, you give us your name, email and any other required information.

    • For Reader Surveys, Research, Panels and Experience Programs:

      We gather information through questionnaires, surveys and feedback programs. We also conduct similar research for advertisers. We ask you for your consent to use this information when you participate in these programs and events.

    • Personal Contacts Data:

      We never scan your device for your contacts or upload this data.

      With your consent, we do comply with your requests to collect data about your friends, family or acquaintances (e.g., Refer Friend campaigns). This functionality is only meant for U.S. residents. By using it, you acknowledge and agree that both you and your contacts are based in the United States — and that you have everyone’s consent for us to use their contact information.

  2. Information Collected Automatically
    • With Tracking Technologies in Your Browser and Mobile Apps:

      These technologies include cookies, web beacons, tags and scripts, software development kits (or SDKs) and beyond.

      We track and store data about how you visit and use Services, particularly through our websites and apps. The items we log include:

      • Your IP address
      • Your location
      • Your operating system
      • Your browser
      • Your browser language
      • The URLs of any pages you visit on our sites and apps
      • Device identifiers
      • Advertising identifiers
      • Other usage information.

      We combine this data with other information we collect about you.

    • If your browser doesn’t accept our cookies, you can’t access certain parts of our websites. Because the “Do Not Track” browser-based standard signal has yet to gain widespread acceptance, we don’t currently respond to those signals.

B) Google Advertising 

  • Third-party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on a user’s prior visits to our website or other websites. We use Google Adsense and some other similar advertisers to show the ads on
  • Google’s use of advertising cookies enables it and its partners to serve ads to our users based on their visit to our sites and/or other sites on the Internet.
  • Users may opt out of personalized advertising by visiting Ads Settings.

 How Do I Opt-Out of Email, Phone, Mail and Push Notifications?

The opt-out methods described below are limited to the email address, phone or device used. They won’t affect subsequent subscriptions.

  1. Email:

    We offer a variety of commercial emails and email newsletters. You can unsubscribe from them by following the “unsubscribe” instructions near the bottom of the email.

  2. Push Notifications:

    You can opt out any time by adjusting your device settings, or uninstalling our app.

We complete any opt-out request as quickly as we can. This opt-out request won’t prohibit us from sending you important nonmarketing notices.

How Long Do You Retain Data?

It depends. We store your personal information for as long as needed, or permitted, based on the reason why we obtained it (consistent with applicable law). This means we might retain your personal information even after you close your account with us.
