Embedded content from other websites

This website currently uses the following third-party services:
WP Recipe Maker Plug-In: Bootstrapped Ventures, the developer of WP Recipe Maker, does not have access to any of the data collected by the plugin. Comment ratings are enabled and we store the rating a user has given to a recipe along with the personal data WordPress core stores. When user ratings are enabled we store a WPRM_User_Voted_%recipe% cookie (with %recipe% the ID of the recipe) that contains the rating this user has given to a particular recipe. This cookie is used as one of the measures to prevent rating spam. When user ratings are enabled we store the IP address upon voting. This is used as another of the measures to prevent rating spam. WP Recipe maker cookies are stored for 30 days.
MailerLite: This website’s email subscription service. The name and email address you use to sign up to receive email is stored for the purpose of sending future emails. All newsletters sent may contain tracking pixels. The pixel is embedded in emails and allows an analysis of the success of online marketing campaigns. Because of these tracking pixels, we may see if and when you open an email and which links within the email you click.
Google Analytics: this service is used to track the usage of this website and provides information such as pageviews, referring websites, and time spent on the site. No personal information is collected.
