Girl Meets Food recognizes the importance of protecting the privacy of information provided to us by those who use our products and services. This policy describes how personally identifiable and anonymous information about our publication subscribers, online media product users and event registrants may be collected and shared.
How does Girl Meets Food collect your information?
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.
