Terms of Use:

Thank you for visiting The Sweet Rebellion. This is where I share my favourite recipes but the website may occasionally also contain articles about food-related events, products, restaurants, and cookbooks.

Copyright: I personally develop all the recipes on the blog, and all photography is by Brett Field unless otherwise stated.  All material found on https://www.thesweetrebellion.co.za is property of Astrid Field and may not be reproduced in part or whole or published without express written permission. You may, however, link to this site, provided that credit is given to Astrid Field and The Sweet Rebellion.

Events: I love being invited to events and endeavour to attend as many of these events as possible, where my schedule allows and where I feel the event is relevant to me. Please note that my attendance at an event does not guarantee social media posts about that event.

Press releases: Please note that I do not publish press releases on this site.

Reviews: I would be more than happy to consider reviewing your food-related product or venue. In the case of a product review, please contact me via email before sending me the product. A blog post about the product/venue is not guaranteed, and where reviews are published a disclosure will be included.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it:

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it.

If you’ve chosen to subscribe to our newsletter, we’ll be contacting you on a regular basis to let you know about any promotions or special offers that may be running, or any additions to the website.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year. If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies.
