Your privacy is very important to us. At Jessie’s Cozy Kitchen we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
- 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.
It is Jessie’s Cozy Kitchen’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most websites, Jessie’s Cozy Kitchen collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request.
