WHAT INFORMATION DO I COLLECT AND HOW IS IT USED?
Information You Voluntarily Submit to the Website: I may collect personal information from you such as your name or email address. For example, you may voluntarily submit information to the Website by leaving a comment, subscribing to a newsletter, or submitting a contact form.
You may choose not to provide any Personal Information. If you have already provided it, you may contact me at janice at shadesbrigade.com if you prefer to have it removed. Be aware that this may limit your ability to use some of my products and features on the Website.
If you wish to opt out of email newsletters, you can do this on your own by using the unsubscribe link from the newsletter.
Automatically-Collected Information: I automatically collect certain information about you and the device with which you access the Website. For example, when you use the Website, I will log your IP address, operating system type, browser type, referring website, pages you viewed, and the dates/times when you accessed the Website. I may also collect information about actions you take when using the Website, such as links clicked.
Cookies: I may log information using cookies, which are small data files stored on your browser by the Website. I may use both session cookies, which expire when you close your browser, and persistent cookies, which stay on your browser until deleted, to provide you with a more personalized experience on the Website.
Users may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies, by the Website, by using a corresponding setting of your internet browser and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. However, if users deactivate the setting of cookies in your Internet browser, not all functions of our Website may be entirely usable.
Comments: When visitors leave comments on the site I collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
If you leave a comment on my site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year. If you leave a comment on this Website, certain information may be publicly visible. Your email address will never be available publicly. At your option, you may also add a link to your website.
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
If you have left comments on this Website, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
HOW YOUR INFORMATION MAY BE USED
I may use the information collected in the following ways:
- To operate and maintain the Website;
- To send you promotional information, such as newsletters. Each email promotion will provide information on how to opt-out of future mailings;
- To send you administrative communications, such as administrative emails, confirmation emails, technical notices, updates on policies, or security alerts;
- To respond to your comments or inquiries;
- To provide you with user support;
- To track and measure advertising on the Website;
- To protect, investigate, and deter against unauthorized or illegal activity.
THIRD-PARTY USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
I may share your information with third parties when you explicitly authorize me to share your information.
Additionally, the Website may use third-party service providers to service various aspects of the Website. Each third-party service provider’s use of your personal information is dictated by their respective privacy policies.
On the Website, you may subscribe to my newsletter, which may be used for advertising purposes. All newsletters sent may contain tracking pixels. The pixel is embedded in emails and allows an analysis of the success of online marketing campaigns. Because of these tracking pixels, we may see if and when you open an email and which links within the email you click. Also, this allows the Website to adapt the content of future newsletters to the interests of the user. This behavior will not be passed on to third parties.

I am not a professional chef, dietician, medical professional, or nutritionist. This blog is a reflection of my opinions and general knowledge that I’ve gained from personal experience and information I’ve come across, and it’s accurate to the best of my knowledge. My recipes should be taken as a guideline only, and your best judgment should be used to ensure the food is safely prepared and/or a good fit for your diet. Please consult a medical professional if you are unsure.
Calorie information is provided on some of my recipes. This information is provided as a courtesy only and should be construed as an estimate rather than a guarantee. To calculate this information, I use online nutrition calculators and existing nutrition labels, which may have errors that I am unaware of. Ingredients themselves and products from brand-to-brand vary, so please use your best judgment (and/or consult a nutritionist) if relying on this nutritional information e.g. if you are following a specific diet.
Janice Smith owns the rights to the recipe photo content and recipes on this blog. All recipe photography on this site is my own unless otherwise indicated with a source link. Please do not republish any recipe or post without my permission. If you want to use one of my photos with a link back for a roundup style post, that’s fine.
This Website will occasionally be compensated by brands or companies to feature their products in blog posts. This relationship will always be disclosed within the blog post. I only work with brands that I feel are a good fit for my blog and only promote products that I believe in.
Some sponsored posts may contain tracking pixels. The pixel is embedded in the post and allows an analysis of the success of online marketing campaigns.
