We automatically collect certain information about you and the device with which you access the website.

Paid product reviews
I may be compensated to provide an opinion on a product, service, website or other topics. Even though I receive compensation for these posts, I will always give my honest opinions, findings, beliefs or experiences on those topics or products. As always, all opinions expressed will be my own and I will only ever review products I would try myself and that I think are a good fit with Recipes Made Easy. I may also write reviews for which I have not received compensation just because I want to. So where I do receive compensation it will be made clear on the post.
