RecipeHive Privacy Policy

We want you to know how we collect, use and protect information about our online members.

Our Commitment to Data Security
We have appropriate physical, electronic and procedural security safeguards to protect and secure the information we collect.

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)
Our Web site uses 128-bit Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption to protect your personal information before it travels over the Internet. SSL technology is the industry standard for secure online transactions. RecipeHive uses the highest encryption available to insure that your transaction session is secure.

In addition to the most up-to-date SSL technology, RecipeHive does not record or store any of your credit card information. This way your credit information can never be compromised.

Our Use of Cookies
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser. Cookies allow us to provide features such as remembering your log in between visits and user preferences.

The “help” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie or how to disable cookies altogether. However, cookies allow you to take full advantage of some of our web site’s best features, so we recommend that you leave them turned on.

Our Privacy Policy
RecipeHive respects your right to privacy. We value our member’s trust. To insure your privacy, we only use member information for order identification, member service contact, or demographic analysis. We may need to contact members by phone, postal mail, or email if questions arise regarding their membership. Demographic analysis is done by recipehive.com only, and information is not shared with anyone not affiliated with RecipeHive.

We do not send unsolicited or “spam” e-mail. RecipeHive uses e-mail addresses to communicate member information, new features, blog subscriptions, and newsletters.

We do not sell, rent, or loan any personal information about our members to any third party. All information provided to us is kept in strict confidence.
