To provide you with the most inspirational, personalized experience on Pinterest, we use information about your activity off and on Pinterest. For example, if we see you’re into cooking based on what you save on Pinterest, we may suggest food-related Pins, boards, or people we think you might like. You can update your privacy and data sharing settings to adjust how we share and use certain information.
