Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy:

The basics:

Cookin’ Mimi https://www.cookingmimi.com/ uses cookies. The cookies are helpful for things like knowing which posts you’ve already read and so you don’t have to keep filling out your name and email address on the comment form. They may also be used to keep track of affiliate links for commissions and ad tracking.

Your IP address is tracked for helpful analytics, by the anti-spam software, and by my security service. Other information collected by the analytics service may include date and time of visit and posts and pages visited. This allows me to know which content is the most helpful and create more.

If you leave a comment the name you used is visible to anyone who visits the website. The email address is visible only to me.

I collect emails for a weekly newsletter and/or RSS feed. The addresses are not shared and you can easily unsubscribe with the links provided in every email.
