Why we need your birth year?

Due to the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), we're required to verify that all Cookthink users are at least 13 years of age. Also, Cookthink is completely supported by advertisements and while we'll never provide specific user information to advertisers, we will provide them with general demographic data about our users as a whole. We believe that this will help us direct ads to you that are more likely to appeal to you (and, of course, help our advertisers better target who their ads are geared to). Just to reiterate: we will never share with anyone any identifying information about you.

Why we need your postal/zip code?

As with your birth year, your zip code provides us with important collective information we can present to our advertisers. Certain ads will be more (or less) relevant to Cookthink users who live in a particular area -- we believe that your postal/zip code will help us direct ads to you that are more likely to appeal to you. Just to reiterate: we will never share with anyone any identifying information about you.

Also, we're working on ways for the Cookthink search engine and Recipe Mapping Project to take into account weather/climate so that we can better direct you to the recipes that fit your cravings. An example: Let's say it's mid-August and you want to cook a steak. So you plug in "steak" to the Cookthink search tool. Knowing your postal code is 35209 (Birmingham, AL) and that mid-August in Birmingham is very, very hot, we weight down recipes that call for you to broil the steak. (Who wants to broil in mid-August in Birmingham?) Anyway, your postal/zip code will help us refine this process.
