Terms of Service

thelonelyegg is not responsible for anything its users submit or upload, however if we discover that any content is illegally distributed, we will work to take it down.

We encourage you to read up on copyright issues regarding recipes. We did a little research ourselves if you want a condensed version. However, the gist is that you cannot copyright a list of ingredients, but you can copyright the directions, or a collection, like a cookbook. The best option, when possible, is to attribute your source and/or describe the process in your own words. If a recipe you submitted is under contention, know that it may be taken down until the issue is resolved.

If we find that you are somehow abusing our system, such as spamming users or conducting illegal activity on our site, we will destroy your account. We don't appreciate bad eggs.

Also, we will not distribute any of your personal or account information to third parties.
