These Terms of Use also apply to any content that’s available on the Site – that includes our lovely recipes,  videos, images…and even the ‘look and feel’ of our Site (yes, we’re very proud of it!).

When do other terms apply?

When you use Jamie's restaurants websites or the cookery school website, which will have their own terms (you can find them on each of their websites):

When you use services or participate in activities where we tell you other or specific terms apply (e.g. competitions, paid-for content, audience participation forms). You’ll have to agree to those terms to get involved with those services/activities. If there is any conflict between these Terms right here and the specific terms, then the specific terms win.

Please be careful when using any messaging or commenting function not to reveal personal information such as your home or work contact details, your last name or where you live.

      We currently allow a company called ‘Disqus’ to provide the commenting function on our recipe pages – for more detail about them and how your personal information is used by them, please go to their Privacy Policy.

      When submitting any inquiries via our “Contact Us” page or by email or other means via the Site, you should not include any juicy stuff – no sensitive personal information, patentable ideas or patent applications, advertising or marketing suggestions, prototypes, or any other information that you regard as confidential, commercially sensitive or valuable (we’ll call these “Unwanted Information”).

None of it is nutritional, technical, financial or legal advice or any other type of advice and you shouldn’t rely on it for any purposes.

      While we try to make sure that the Site is available for your use 24/7 (hey, we want to be here when you need that cookie recipe for your midnight snack), we can’t promise that the Site will be available at all times and we don’t promise that your use of it will be uninterrupted. Also, while we hope never to do so, we can suspend or terminate operation of the Site at any time as we see fit.
