Your privacy is important to us. Here at Flavor Plate, we have a few fundamental principles:
It is Flavor Plate’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Flavor Plate collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Flavor Plate’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Flavor Plate’s visitors use its website and how they arrived there. From time to time, Flavor Plate may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Flavor Plate also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Flavor Plate does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Certain visitors to Flavor Plate’s websites choose to interact with Flavor Plate in ways that require Flavor Plate to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Flavor Plate gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at Flavor Plate to provide an account username/web address and e-mail address. Those who engage in transactions with Flavor Plate are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Flavor Plate collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Flavor Plate. Flavor Plate does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
In order to provide its customers with adequate support and back-up, Flavor Plate reserves the right to access and review any information that is collected or passed through its customer websites (e.g. gift card order contact information, and emails delivered through the customer website’s contact us form). Flavor Plate has a SPAM filtering mechanism built into each of its customer website’s contact us forms. If an email is identified as SPAM, Flavor Plate reserves the right to review its content and verify its legitimacy.
Flavor Plate may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Flavor Plate may monitor the most popular restaurants in the Flavor Plate site. Flavor Plate may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Flavor Plate does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Flavor Plate discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Flavor Plate’s behalf or to provide services available at Flavor Plate’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Flavor Plate’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Flavor Plate will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Flavor Plate discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Flavor Plate believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Flavor Plate, third parties or the public at large. Data transmitted through your browser over the Internet can never be guaranteed to be 100% safe and secure. As a result of this, we cannot ensure or warrant the absolute security of any data you send to Flavor Plate and you do so at your own risk. Upon receiving your transmission of data, we make our best efforts to maintain the security of your information on our systems. If you are a registered user of a Flavor Plate website and have supplied your e-mail address, Flavor Plate may occasionally send you an e-mail to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Flavor Plate and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of e-mail to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support e-mail or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Flavor Plate takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
As with many other sites, users under the age of 18 are strictly prohibited from using Flavor Plate.
