This policy explains when and why we collect information about you, how we use it, the conditions under which we may disclose it to others and how we keep it secure.

We may change this Policy from time to time so please check this page occasionally to ensure that you’re happy with any changes. By using our website, you’re agreeing to be bound by this Policy.

Who are We?

Chili Pepper Madness is a recipe site run by Mike Hultquist, your gourmet chilihead friend. We specialize in easy, approachable recipes with a spicy spin.

How we Collect Information About You

Information is collected via log files, cookies, leaving comments on the site, purchasing a product or subscribing to our newsletter.

What Information do we Collect About You

We collect information on your name, email address, website (if you leave this in a comment), IP address and the pages that you visited and when you visited them on the site.

All financial details are collected via PayPal which does not retain any financial information once the transaction has been processed.

How and Why we Track your Visit

Like most websites around the world we use Google Analytics (GA) to process information about the number of visitors on our site, and their behavior.

We use this information to record the number of people using Chili Pepper Madness and to better understand where you discover our site (from social media, google or another site) and how you use it as well as to see how people move throughout the site.

GA records your approximate location down to town level, the type device you are using e.g. Mobile or Table, Name of device e.g. iPad or Samsung Galazy etc…, operating system e.g. Windows 10 or iOS and browser e.g. Firefox or Chrome. None of this data can be used to identify you.

Google does record your IP address, however, we don’t have access to this information and it modifies it so that you can not be identified specifically just the area that you are in.

Google Analytics Demographics

We are committed to ensuring that our website contains content that is valuable and useful to our readers.

To help us with this we have implemented the Google analytics demographics and interest reporting features on our website.

These tools allow us to review anonymous data regarding the gender, age and interests of website visitors and adapt our website content to better reflect their needs.

Although this information is collected through your Google ad settings, it is not provided to us in a personally-identifiable format. This means we cannot identify what information is about you, and we will not try to figure it out.

You can opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising and customise Google Display Network ads using the Google Ad settings or through the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on.

To do this Google Analytics uses a “cookie” on your machine read more about Cookies below.
