Privacy policy

Cook44 websites (collectively “Cook44” in this document) refer to sites hosted on and related subdomains thereof.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Cook44 collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Cook44’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Cook44’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Cook44 may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Cook44 also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Cook44 does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Cook44 choose to interact with Cook44 in ways that require Cook44 to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Cook44 gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who use our forums to provide a username and email address. In each case, Cook44 collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Cook44. Cook44 does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Cook44 may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Cook44 may reveal which recipes are most viewed, from which regions. However, Cook44 does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Cook44 discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Cook44’s behalf or to provide services available at Cook44, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Cook44, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Cook44 will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, Cook44 discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Cook44 believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Cook44, third parties, or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Cook44 website and have supplied your email address, Cook44 may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Cook44 and our products. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Cook44 takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Cook44 uses cookies to help Cook44 identify and track visitors, their usage of Cook44, and their website access preferences. Cook44 visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Cook44’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Cook44’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Cook44 may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Cook44’s sole discretion. Cook44 encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
