Loaves and Dishes believes very strongly in keeping your personal information confidential. The following policy describes what information we collect and how it is used and shared.
Amazon Associates Program
We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.
Loaves and Dishes 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
With Whom Information is Shared
None of your information will be shared with third parties. Loaves and Dishes may use your e-mail address in the future to contact you regarding the site, however, an opt-out will always be provided. Your name and website may be displayed on the site if you post a comment or a message in the forum. However, your e-mail address and privacy will always be kept secure.
If Loaves and Dishes chooses to send out newsletter updates in the future and we have your email address on file, you may receive a copy of our newsletter. However, at the bottom of every newsletter will be an easy way to opt-out. Wendi hates SPAM as much as you and has no intention of filling up e-mail boxes with unwanted messages.
Third Party Advertising
Loaves and Dishes allows 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. To learn more about this behavioral advertising practice or to opt-out of this type of advertising, you can visit networkadvertising.org.
Loaves and Dishes welcomes and desires your comments. Helpful suggestions and constructive criticism is always welcome. That is how we learn from one another. This site is much like my own home. I do live here, A LOT. I invest hours of my time to make this a place where you will want to come visit. Please do not say anything in a comment that you would not say right in my own home to my face. I reserve the right to allow your comment or not on this website just as I would escort you right out of my home if you were being rude. I reserve the right to not publish a comment, remove a comment luv link or remove a comment that is rude or objectionable.
Recipes found here
The recipes you find on this site are either made up entirely by me, taken from old cookbooks and clippings or the make of something I found on line, in a magazine or in a book. I always do my best to note where I found a recipe if it is not something I made up entirely on my own. Where there are on line links available, I will provide a link. If not – I will give you the reference for where the recipe came from.
Loaves and Dishes participates with other companies for advertising on this website in order to off-set the expenses of operating a food blog. Loaves and Dishes does not have control over the types of ads that are shown. Loaves and Dishes nor Wendi Spraker endorse the products or ads that are being shown to you unless specifically mentioned in a post on this website.
For ads in which Loaves and Dishes or Wendi Spraker has suggested use of a certain product, we may receive compensation if you purchase that item through this website. (Usually a single digit percent of the purchase price).
Finally, Loaves and Dishes does accept sponsored posts and may receive funds or product from the company who sponsors the post. You can be assured that Wendi Spraker will give you her honest opinion about the product – as a friend once said, “Wendi Spraker doesn’t worry about being politically correct”.
