Privacy is important to me; I assume it is important to you as well.
I like nuts, so here it is in a nutshell:
These tools measure the effect of our advertising, track visit details, and generate information we use to make our ads more relevant to you.
Affiliate Program Participation
Savoring Today may engage in affiliate marketing, which is done by embedding tracking links into the Website. If you click on a link for an affiliate partnership, a cookie will be placed on your browser to track any sales for purposes of commissions.
Savoring Today is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and links to Amazon.com. As part of this Amazon Associates program, the Website will post customized links, provided by Amazon, to track the referrals to their website. This program utilizes cookies to track visits for the purposes of assigning commission on these sales. (See details about using cookies below.)
These tools collect anonymous information about how visitors use our sites, and are used to improve our products, services, and the user experience. This collection of information about you and the device with which you access the Website includes but is not limited to: IP address, operating system type, browser type, referring website, pages you viewed, and the dates/times when you accessed the Website.

Newsletters (Notifications of Recipe Updates)
Subscribing to our email list allows us to send you newsletters and periodic updates about our recipes and products. These emails may be used for advertising purposes and 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. Also, this allows Savoring Today to adapt the content of future newsletters to the interests of the user. This behavior will not be passed on to third parties.
