Newsletter – The Domestic Cooking Guide
When visitors leave comments on this website we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser information to help detect and prevent spam.
When comment ratings are enabled we store the rating a user has given to a recipe along with other user submitted data in the comment form.
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.
Our cookies are stored for 30 days. User submitted data is stored indefinitely in the local database.
This website uses Google Analytics to record information about the pages a user has seen, for example the page URL, time of day, device the page was viewed on, etc. Google Analytics also collects Internet Protocol (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”). The information that we collect is anonymized and sent to Google Analytics for analysis.
Google Analytics mainly uses first-party cookies to report on visitor interactions on this website. Users may disable cookies or delete any individual cookie. In addition, Google Analytics supports an optional browser add-on that – once installed and enabled – disables measurement by Google Analytics for any site a user visits. Note that this add-on only disables Google Analytics measurement.
