Recipes.net DMCA Notice and Takedown Procedure
From The Recipes.net Team
Here at Recipes.net, we provide a recipe sharing platform where individuals from around the world can exchange and share their favorite recipes. At Recipes.net, we believe that it is possible to make restaurant-worthy dishes from the comfort of your own home.
However, we also believe that some of the best tips are those that have been handed down for generations. Which is why we believe that these recipes and cooking tips should be shared.
Having said that, we also believe in protecting and respecting copyrights and your privacy. Simply put, we do not want copyrighted recipes on our website unless you want them to be there and with the proper accreditation and attribution.
We have made a point to state throughout the site, that anything posted or shared to Recipes.net be credited appropriately and that the content does not infringe on existing copyrights.
We ask that you understand that we have several hundred recipes on our website and many are being added on a daily basis. We constantly strive to do our best to monitor recipes and all content posted to our platform to ensure that they are original and do not infringe on existing copyrights.
However, we are unable to review every single recipe as it is uploaded. Therefore, if you believe that an original piece of work has been uploaded to our domain, we urge that you reach out to us. We ensure you that we will take prompt action against users who do not respect copyright laws.
