I work very hard to set-up, style, photograph and edit all the images taken by me on this blog. Just because they are in the internet, does not make them available for anyone to lay claim to ownership in any way. Because of this, I have set forth the following policies for copying and use of my images:
- Fellow food bloggers are welcome to use any of my images in round-up posts with a link-back to original recipe.
- Images are available for use for companies to use in advertising and promotion after discussion of terms. For further information on this, you can contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
- No other names or logos are to be added as watermarks to my images
