Please be sure to read this Privacy Policy before using any Girl Meets Food Website or submitting information through a Site. By using any of our Websites, you consent to our use of your information as outlined in this Privacy Policy and accept the terms and conditions herein.

This Privacy Policy is current as of January 1, 2019. If we change our privacy practices, we will also update this Privacy Policy. Users should review this policy periodically to monitor any changes.

How does Girl Meets Food collect your information?

Girl Meets Food uses cookies and other internet technologies in the management of our Website and email programs in an effort to enrich your online experience. We may also use IP addresses to gather broad geographic information for aggregate use. Our cookies do not contain any information that is personally identifiable. Like many Websites, Girl Meets Food may use pixel tags, also known as web beacons, clear gifs, or web bugs. Pixel tags help us improve our understanding of our web traffic and visitor behavior, as well as gauge the response to our promotional efforts. If you wish, you may disable pixel tags by setting your browser to omit images and disable JavaScript.

We use industry-standard, third-party advertising service companies to serve advertisements when you visit our sites or open our emails. These companies may use cookies, pixel tags, and other methods to collect information about your visit to our Website, and others, in order to provide you with relevant advertisements about products, services, and events. These collection methods do not typically include your name, address, or telephone number. These elements also provide us with aggregate pictures of traffic patterns, which help us to improve your site experience and monitor advertising effort.

When is your information collected and used?

Girl Meets Food collects personally identifiable information that you choose to provide us when you subscribe to our publications, sign up for e-newsletters, enter a contest, participate in surveys, log in to our Websites using a third-party login system (including, but not limited to, Facebook Connect, Twitter, etc.), register for a Website, webcast, or trade show, or otherwise communicate with us. When you provide this information to us, you are no longer anonymous. Girl Meets Food does not take any steps to protect the privacy of information you volunteer about yourself in forums or other publicly accessible sections of our Websites.

We may use your contact information to send notices for subscription renewal or provide you with information about products or services you have ordered with us. We may also use your contact information to send you e-newsletters or other promotional e-mails that contain targeted, relevant content that may be useful to your business. All promotional e-mails you receive from us will include an option to opt out of similar e-mail communications in the future.

Who does Girl Meets Food share your information with?

Girl Meets Food may share information with our affiliates and business partners whom we believe share our commitment to privacy and information security. We may share identifiable information or anonymized aggregate information with advertisers and other third parties. In some cases you may receive relevant, carefully-screened offers from reputable third-party business organizations with which we have shared your information. Many of our customers appreciate receiving these offers because they are relevant and useful to their business or occupation. Each such communication will provide you with an opportunity to opt out of similar future communications.

From time to time, you may receive information from or on behalf of advertisers who wish to contact you as a result of your viewing habits, such as where you have clicked on a link in a Girl Meets Food e-newsletter, interacted with particular content, or indicated an interest in certain products, services or events. Each such form of contact will provide you with an opportunity to opt out of sharing your information with our advertisers. We may also use your information to send you email and other communications on behalf of third parties. Each such communication will provide you with an opportunity to opt out of similar future communications.

In compliance with privacy laws, we provide our opt-out lists to third parties so that any communications sent on Girl Meets Food’s behalf are not sent to those who have opted out of receiving such communications.

How does Girl Meets Food protect your information?

We use reasonable precautions, including appropriate technical, administrative, and physical procedures, to try to protect collected personal information from loss, misuse, or alteration.

Many of our Websites contain links to Websites owned and operated by unaffiliated third parties. These links are provided as a service to you, and do not constitute Girl Meets Food’s endorsement or support of those third parties or their Websites. Each third party Website has its own information collection and use practices, and we advise you to review their policies.

Girl Meets Food is not responsible or liable for third-party privacy practices or the content of third-party sites. We are not responsible or liable for any breach of security or for the actions of these parties.

Due to the design of the Internet and other factors outside our control, we cannot guarantee that communications between you and our servers will be free from unauthorized access by third parties. Any information you provide may be stored and maintained in a Girl Meets Food database, either housed at Girl Meets Food or with a third-party vendor. In the case of a sale, change of ownership or merger involving Girl Meets Food or any parent, subsidiary or affiliated company, your information may be transferred to a third party.
