I implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you enter, submit, or access your personal information.

Do you use cookies?

Yes, Fork in the Road uses cookies to keep track of advertisements and compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that I can offer better site content and experiences. I do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer your information to outside third parties. This does not include trusted third parties who I used to ensure the site is working and running properly.

Finally, you can choose to disable or selectively turn off cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings.

Third party links

Occasionally I may include or offer third party products or services. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies and I therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. However, I welcome any feedback or issues you may have with these links as I value my readers' trust and want to ensure a great user experience.

Advertising

Fork in the Road uses third-party companies to serve ads and/or collect certain anonymous information when you visit the site. These companies may use non-personally identifiable information 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.


Partnerships and Compensation

At times I may partner with a brand or company and may receive product or monetary compensation to provide my opinion or to develop a recipe or other content. I will always disclose this relationship and will provide my honest and true opinion on the product. I will only partner with brands and companies I truly believe in and that complement the fresh, seasonal and sustainable food message I promote on the blog and in my recipes.

Affiliate Links Disclosure

I occasionally post affiliate links to cookware or other products used in recipes. For example, Fork in the Road is a part of Amazon Associates, an affiliate program that provides a small fee to me if my readers purchase products I link to through Amazon links. There is no additional cost to you if you purchase through the links and all links are products I truly use or recommend.

Display Ads

Mediavine Programmatic Advertising (Ver 1.1)

The Website works with Mediavine to manage third-party interest-based advertising appearing on the Website. Mediavine serves content and advertisements when you visit the Website, which may use first and third-party cookies. A cookie is a small text file which is sent to your computer or mobile device (referred to in this policy as a “device”) by the web server so that a website can remember some information about your browsing activity on the Website.

First party cookies are created by the website that you are visiting. A third-party cookie is frequently used in behavioral advertising and analytics and is created by a domain other than the website you are visiting. Third-party cookies, tags, pixels, beacons and other similar technologies (collectively, “Tags”) may be placed on the Website to monitor interaction with advertising content and to target and optimize advertising. Each internet browser has functionality so that you can block both first and third-party cookies and clear your browser’s cache. The “help” feature of the menu bar on most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new cookies, how to receive notification of new cookies, how to disable existing cookies and how to clear your browser’s cache. For more information about cookies and how to disable them, you can consult the information at All About Cookies.

Without cookies you may not be able to take full advantage of the Website content and features. Please note that rejecting cookies does not mean that you will no longer see ads when you visit our Site. In the event you opt-out, you will still see non-personalized advertisements on the Website.

The Website collects the following data using a cookie when serving personalized ads:

  • IP Address
  • Operating System type
  • Operating System version
  • Device Type
  • Language of the website
  • Web browser type
  • Email (in hashed form)

Mediavine Partners (companies listed below with whom Mediavine shares data) may also use this data to link to other end user information the partner has independently collected to deliver targeted advertisements. Mediavine Partners may also separately collect data about end users from other sources, such as advertising IDs or pixels, and link that data to data collected from Mediavine publishers in order to provide interest-based advertising across your online experience, including devices, browsers and apps. This data includes usage data, cookie information, device information, information about interactions between users and advertisements and websites, geolocation data, traffic data, and information about a visitor’s referral source to a particular website. Mediavine Partners may also create unique IDs to create audience segments, which are used to provide targeted advertising.
