Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us. At Cookery Nation we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. Questions regarding income level or gender and the like really have no bearing on the cooking process – so we do not ask for it.
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site for things like sending notifications and newsletters.
