Policy Effective Date: Updated June 1, 2019
For the purpose of these Terms, a User is an individual who uses our Service.
Subject to these Terms, we agree to provide you with the Cooklist Service. The Service includes all of the Cooklist products, features, applications, technologies and software that we provide to advance Cooklist’s mission: To help you eat intelligently.
Cooklist helps you discover recipes you can cook and buy the groceries you need. To do that, we show you things we think will be relevant, interesting and personal to you based on your onsite and offsite activity. To provide our Service, we need to be able to identify you and your interests.
The Service is made up of the following aspects:
People are different, and so are the things we eat. We want to strengthen your relationship with food through personalized experiences you actually care about. So we build systems that try to understand who and what you and others care about, and use that information to help you create, find, cook, and share in experiences that matter to you. Part of that is highlighting content, features, offers, and accounts you might be interested in, and offering ways for you to experience Cooklist, based on things you and others do on and off Cooklist.
Organizing and analyzing information for our growing community is central to our Service. A big part of our Service is creating and using cutting-edge technologies that help us personalize, protect, and improve our Service on an incredibly large scale for a broad community. Technologies like artificial intelligence and machine learning give us the power to apply complex processes across our Service. Automated technologies also help us ensure the functionality and integrity of our Service.
We may use data from Cooklist, as well as from third-party partners, to show you ads, offers, and other sponsored content that we believe will be meaningful to you. And we try to make that content as relevant as all your other experiences on Cooklist.
We use the information we have to study our Service and collaborate with others on research to make our Service better and contribute to the well-being of our community.
In return for our commitment to provide the Service, we require you to make the below commitments to us.
We want our Service to be as open and inclusive as possible, but we also want it to be safe, secure, and in accordance with the law. So, we need you to commit to a few restrictions in order to be part of the Instagram community.
Providing a safe and open Service for a broad community requires that we all do our part.
Anything that you post or otherwise make available on Cooklist (like photos, videos, music, or directions) is referred to as "User Content." You retain all rights in, and are solely responsible for, the User Content you post to Cooklist.
You grant Cooklist and our users a non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable, sublicensable, worldwide license to use, store, display, reproduce, save, modify, create derivative works, perform, and distribute your User Content. Nothing in these Terms restricts other legal rights Cooklist may have to User Content, for example under other licenses. We reserve the right to remove or modify User Content, or change the way it’s used in Cooklist, for any reason.
You give us permission to show your username, profile picture, and information about your actions (such as likes) or relationships (such as follows) next to or in connection with accounts, ads, offers, and other sponsored content that you follow or engage with that are displayed on the Service, without any compensation to you. For example, we may show that you liked a sponsored post created by a brand that has paid us to display its ads on Cooklist. As with actions on other content and follows of other accounts, actions on sponsored content and follows of sponsored accounts can be seen only by people who have permission to see that content or follow. We will also respect your settings.
Following termination or deactivation of your account, or if you remove any User Content from Cooklist, we may keep your User Content for a reasonable period of time for backup, archival, or audit purposes. Cooklist and its users may retain and continue to use, store, display, reproduce, modify, create derivative works, perform, and distribute any of your User Content that other users have stored or shared on Cooklist.
We value hearing from our users, and are always interested in learning about ways we can make Cooklist better. If you choose to submit comments, ideas or feedback, you agree that we are free to use them without any restriction or compensation to you. By accepting your submission, Cooklist doesn’t waive any rights to use similar or related feedback previously known to Cooklist, or developed by its employees, or obtained from sources other than you.
As part of our agreement, you also give us these permissions that we need to provide the Service.
We care about the security of our users.

By using these tools, you agree that we may transfer such User Content and information to the applicable third party service. Such third party services are not under our control, and we are not responsible for the contents of the third party service or the use of your User Content or information by the third party service.
