Privacy Policy

Information Collected
A Beautiful Plate collects as little information as possible from users looking to post comments and messages in the forum.  We will typically collect a name (either real or alias), personal website, and e-mail address.

Cookies / IP Address tracking
A Beautiful Plate uses cookies to uniquely identify users for the purpose of log files, posting comments, and voting on the site.  No personal information is stored in these cookies and it simply a way to identify your computer.

With Whom Information is Shared
None of your information will be shared with third parties.  A Beautiful Plate may use your e-mail address in the future to contact you regarding the site (if you are signed up for email updates), however, an opt-out will always be provided.  Your name and website may be displayed on the site if you post a comment on a blog post.  However, your e-mail address and privacy will always be kept secure and private.

Opting Out
If A Beautiful Plate chooses to send out newsletter updates in the future and you are signed up for our newsletter service, you may receive a copy of our newsletter.  However, at the bottom of every newsletter will be an easy way to opt-out. I hate SPAM as much as you and have no intention of filling up e-mail boxes with unwanted messages.

Third Party Advertising
We allow third-party companies to serve ads and/or collect certain anonymous information when you visit our web site. These companies may use non-personally identifiable information (e.g., click stream information, browser type, time and date, subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over) during your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of greater interest to you. These companies typically use a cookie or third party web beacon to collect this information.
