Your privacy is very important to us. It is Foodym’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our Website (https://foodym.com).
Like most website operators, Foodym 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. Foodym’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Foodym’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Foodym may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Foodym also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged-in users and for users leaving comments on https://foodym.com articles, recipes, and posts. Foodym only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Foodym’s websites choose to interact with Foodym in ways that require Foodym to gather personally identifying information. The amount and type of information that Foodym gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up to receive Foodym news at https://foodym.com to provide their email address; this information is stored at MailChimp and Flodesk, our email marketing services. We also ask visitors who wish to leave a comment to provide their name and email address; this data is stored on our site and never shared with outside parties.
The security of your Personal Information is important to us – we use SSL protocol to secure and encrypt data – but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100 percent secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
