However, we cannot guarantee that the products, services, or ideas on our website will meet your personal taste or expectations. While we promote high standards and original, quality ideas, it is ultimately up to each Chef or advertiser to share products, services, or ideas that meet your satisfaction.

Your Obligations to Recipe Magic

  • Your Account
    • Creating an account with Recipe Magic gives you access to our community and allows you to utilize the "magic" related to our content. Recipe Magic may offer different types of accounts for different types of users. If you open an account on behalf of a company, organization, or other entity, then (a) "you" includes you and that entity, and (b) you represent and warrant that you are an authorized representative of the entity with the authority to bind the entity to these Terms, and that you agree to these Terms on the entity's behalf. With your account, you agree not to use user names that are offensive, obscene, or harassing to others. We may require you to change your user name if for any reason we determine that it is necessary to do so.
    • You may close your account at any time by contacting us. Also, we reserve the right to permanently or temporarily terminate or suspend your account or access to our website, without notice or liability to you, including if you violate any provision of these Terms, or for any other or for no reason. Upon termination of your account, you will continue to be bound by these Terms as they relate to your time with an account or as they relate to subsequent contacts with Recipe Magic.
    • You agree to provide us with complete and accurate information when you create your account. Please be sure to update your contact information so we can reach you at all times if necessary. Although we do not require you to do so, we recommend you use "strong" passwords (passwords that use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols) for your account. You agree to keep your account login and password secure. This is important because you are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your account. You must notify us immediately if you become aware that your account has been compromised in anyway, including any unauthorized use of your account.
  • Your Conduct
    • You agree to keep your posts respectable and authentic and agree to not post objectionable content.
    • The following methods of generating visitor interest are prohibited and may be grounds for immediate termination, in addition to other remedies available to Recipe Magic: mailing emails to persons other than those persons who have requested to receive such emails (i.e., spamming), use of unsolicited email or inappropriate newsgroup postings to promote User Media or Recipes, auto-spawning of browsers, or automatic redirecting of visitors, blind text links, misleading links, forced clicks (a person should never be 'forced' to click on an Ad Tag because their browser has been hijacked, or because an Ad Tag has been altered so that it is impossible to close without clicking it), or any other method that may lead to artificially high numbers of delivered clicks or views.
  • Your Representations and Warranties
    You represent and warrant to Recipe Magic that:
    • You understand that all content on Recipe Magic is the property of Recipe Magic, its other users, or a third-party. You agree not to use, modify, reproduce, distribute, sell, license, or otherwise exploit any content on Recipe Magic (except for your own content) without our permission;
    • All of the information you submit to us is truthful and accurate;
    • You are responsible for the continued accuracy of your information by keeping your information updated;
    • You are the only person who will use your account (meaning you are responsible for the use of your account and for keeping your account information confidential);
    • You are age 18 or older, and you are not prohibited by any laws or agreements with others from using this website;
    • Recipe Magic is not liable for any losses you incur as a result of use of your account, even if wrongfully done by others; and
    • These Terms are supported by reasonable and valuable consideration, the receipt and adequacy of which you acknowledge. Without limiting the foregoing, you acknowledge that such consideration includes, without limitation, an account with Recipe Magic, access to our community, and recognition and compensation that may arise as a result of using our services.
  • Indemnification
    • You agree to indemnify and hold Recipe Magic, its parents, subsidiaries and affiliates, agents, officers, directors, or other employees harmless from any claim, demand, or damage (whether direct, indirect, or consequential), including reasonable attorneys' fees, made by anyone in connection with your use of our services for any alleged infringement of intellectual property, copyright or other right of any person or entity relating to your account, actions or content, your violation of these Terms, or any other acts or omissions relating to our services.
