2. Photo & Recipe Sharing Policy

Thank you for your interest. Please keep in mind that my content is copyrighted material and I’ve worked very hard to produce it.

PHOTO USE

If you want to use my photo(s) to promote my recipe or my blog in general: You may share one photo as long as you prominently link back to the original post. If it is feasible, please include a link to my home page, http://sweetpeasandsaffron.com, as well. You may not republish the recipe itself.

If you want to use my photo(s) to promote something else: You must request permission beforehand. I do not allow my photos to be used as clip art/stock images unless we’ve negotiated compensation and licensing details.

RECIPE USE

You may not republish my recipe(s). I do not allow other websites or publications to publish my recipes.  I want sweetpeasandsaffron.com to remain the exclusive source for my recipes. Again, my recipes are copyrighted material and may not be published elsewhere.

Thank you for your understanding. There is no need to contact me for confirmation of the permissions presented on this page. For questions that are not answered above, email me at [email protected] .
