Creature's Kitchen Terms and Conditions of Service

By visiting www.creatureskitchen.com you are consenting to our Terms and Conditions, in their entirety and without modification.

In these Terms of Service, the words "we," "us," "our,"  "site," and "Creature's Kitchen" refer to www.creatureskitchen.com. The terms "user," "users," "you," and "your" refer to any visitor, customer, client, or other user of this site. The term "service," "services," and "content" refers to all pages and their contents available on this site, including, but not limited to: recipes, email subscriptions, e-books, photographs, and photography services.

These Terms of Service apply to all users and all services offered on www.creatureskitchen.com

1. Intellectual Property and Copyright

You are not allowed to sell or re-blog any of our content, including recipes, photographs, written posts or pages, for any purpose at any time. If we discover that you have sold or re-blogged any of our content without our permission, we reserve the right to take action against you in order to have that content removed from the place you unlawfully put it. We also reserve the right to have any losses, wether monetary or related to the reputation of our brand, incurred by us through your action, repaid to us monetarily by you.  

Please remember that online content is intellectual property, and that using it without permission is the same as stealing physical property. 

2. Accreditation for Recipe Adaptation

At times our recipes are inspired by or loosely adapted from those created by other author's content, found in either digital or print form. In this case, we always accredit the source at the bottom of the relevant post or page. As we expect others to respect our intellectual property, we never replicate someone else's work and claim it as our own, nor do we re-blog content owned by someone else. Our adaptations are always based within reasonable limits, and in their entirety are unique to us. By providing links to our inspiration and resources, we choose to share further inspiration with our audience, and to clarify if a recipe is similar in certain aspects to another one already created.

We ask that others do the same, by providing appropriate accreditation to our work, in the case that their content is inspired or adapted from ours.  

3. Affiliate Links and Advertising

We sometimes include affiliate links in our site, through which we earn a commission if you choose to buy a product through that link. The price of the product is never increased for you through your use of the link, and we never recommend products that we wouldn't personally give to our family and friends. 

We may also accept forms of paid promotional advertising, such as for recipe ingredients or lifestyle products, through posts on the blog or related social media platforms. As always, we only ever recommend products we would personally use and suggest to people we care about. In the case that a brand approaches us for paid promotion and we are not 100% aligned with their mission, we refuse. 

4. Third-Party Links

We occasionally provide links to third-party websites, in order to recommend items such as blogs or products to you. We hold no liability for the content of the websites we link to, including if the link we provide is broken, re-directed to an unintended page, related to content which we did not intend, is inappropriate, or poses a threat or risk to you, your browser, or to your device. 

5. Lawful Purposes

You may use this site for lawful purposes only, and must not transmit any form of material which violates or infringes the rights of others. You may not defame, abuse, violate, threaten, harm, negatively provoke, or subjugate any person or sentient being through the use of our services. In the case that you violate these conditions, we reserve the right to revoke your access to the site, permanently, without warning, and without refund.

We will accept no liability for the unlawful use of our services by a user, regardless of harm incurred physically, financially, emotionally, or otherwise upon a third person, party, or entity. 

6. Privacy

We collect personal identifying information about you only with your permission. Currently, this only includes if you opt-in to receive emails from us, at which time you must provide your full name and email address to us. By opting-in to emails, you agree to receive emails from us for the following purposes: 1) to inform you about recent blog posts or updates on the site, 2) to help you find information on or related to the site, which we believe will be of service to you, 3) to conduct a survey or request for feedback in order to improve our services, and 4) to inform you about a new service we are offering (such as an ebook or course). 

We do not sell, trade, or rent any personal identifying information of our users to third parties. We take reasonable measures to protect this information from unauthorized access, collection, alteration, use, or disclosure. 

Through the use of cookies, we may collect non-personally identifiable information (such as aggregated demographic information) related to your use of this site. We never sell, trade, or rent this information, but may share it with trusted third-parties, affiliates, sponsors, or business partners in order to improve our services.  

Our privacy policy does not extend to cover the use of cookies by third-party advertisers through our site, such as by Google Adsense or other advertisers. We take reasonable measures to ensure that the third-parties we do work with are reputable, secure, and safe, but accept no liability for risks incurred through the inclusion of these services on our site.
