OUR COMMITMENT: RESPECTING AND PROTECTING OUR CUSTOMERS' PRIVACY
Your privacy is important to us. TASTEA.NET respects and takes steps to protect the privacy of our customers. We strive to take reasonable care of information we may receive from you.
WHAT INFORMATION WE COLLECT & HOW WE USE IT
Information we collect
TASTEA.NET does not generally collect personal information from you when you visit our sites. We may, however, track non-personal information about your visit including the domain name and the name of the Web page from which you entered our sites, how much time you spend on each of our pages and the IP address associated with your computer for statistical and analytical purposes.
Cookies and related technologies
On some of the pages on our site we may also use small bits of computer code called "one-pixel gifs," "clear gifs," or "Web beacons" embedded in Web pages to monitor the activity on our Web sites. Again, the technology does not capture or contain any personal information.
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. TASTEA.NET corporate Web sites are not designed to attract children under the age of 13 and TASTEA.NET does not knowingly collect personal information from children on our Web sites.
Third Party Advertisers and External Links
Information we disclose to third parties
We may use aggregated information concerning how visitors use our Web sites and share such information with third parties in order to improve our Web sites and to help us attract advertisers and listings. For example, we may share how many individuals visited our Web site and, on average how long they stayed on each page. Such use and sharing of aggregated information will not reveal any of your personal information to third parties.
TASTEA.NET will disclose personal information, to the extent it possesses any, when in its good faith judgment the law requires it to do so, such as in response to court orders or subpoenas or other legal process, or when disclosure is necessary to protect our rights or the rights of our advertisers.
No data transmissions over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Consequently, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make reasonable efforts to ensure security on our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed by breach of any firewalls or secure server software we may employ.
If TASTEA.NET learns of a security systems breach we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using this Web site or providing personal information to us you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy and administrative issues relating to your use of this site. TASTEA.NET may post a notice on our Web site if a security breach occurs. If this happens, you will need a Web browser enabling you to view the TASTEA.NET Web site. TASTEA.NET may also send an e-mail to you at the e-mail address you have provided to us in these circumstances. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. To receive free written notice of a security breach (or to withdraw your consent from receiving an electronic notice) you should notify us at privacy@TASTEA.NET.
