The Dinner Set's mission is to make entertaining easy.

We do this by providing you with our planner tool to invite and schedule your friends, by providing you a place to save your favourite recipes, and by giving you access to great recipes and inspirational content from our team.

When you register for the site and when you use the planner invitation tool or add a recipe, the information you type in is stored securely on The Dinner Set website. Your membership is very important to us so we work very hard to protect your privacy.

We will never pass on your or your guests' data to 3rd parties to market to you. We do track our progress and monitor our systems so we will anonymise your data to report on things like how many people have joined the site.

We also use Google Analytics to review how the site is being used. To find out more about Google’s privacy policy, go to
