In addition, FoodiesUSA.com automatically gathers general statistical information about visitors to the Site, such as IP addresses, browsers, pages viewed, number of visitors, transactions, etc., but in doing so FoodiesUSA.com does not reference You by individual name, e-mail address, home address, or telephone number.

FoodiesUSA.com will not transfer Your information to third parties for marketing purposes without Your consent.

The Primary Purpose for which FoodiesUSA.com collects the information is to facilitate delivery of the Services and to support transactions on the Site. 

Unless you opt not to receive them, FoodiesUSA.com may use Your information to deliver information to You that, in some cases, is targeted to Your interests, such as targeted banners, new Services and promotions.  You also have the option to receive Services updates.

Foodies USA may use Your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, to manage the Site and to enhance our Site based on the usage pattern data FoodiesUSA.com receives.

Disclosure

Other than for the purposes above is limited to enforcement of the User Agreement; cooperation with legal requirements; investigation and resolution of claims pertaining to intellectual property and other proprietary rights of others; and the safety of third parties.  This may involve disclosure to government officials in response to a subpoena or court order or verified request relating to investigation of criminal activity.

Use of Cookies

The Foodies USA websites use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize FoodiesUSA.com pages, or register with FoodiesUSA.com sites or services, a cookie helps FoodiesUSA.com to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the FoodiesUSA.com web sites, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the FoodiesUSA.com features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the FoodiesUSA.com services or web sites you visit.

Security

Your account information and profile are password-protected. FoodiesUSA.com recommends that You do not divulge Your password to anyone. Our personnel will never ask You for Your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited e-mail. Remember to sign out of Your account and close Your browser window when You have finished Your session. This is to help ensure that others cannot access Your personal information and correspondence if You share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place where others may have access to it.

FoodiesUSA.com employs reasonable and current security methods to prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure correct use of information.  However, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be perfectly secure. As a result, while FoodiesUSA.com tries to protect Your personal information, Foodies USA cannot ensure or guarantee the security of any information You transmit to us, and You do so at Your own risk.

Children Under 14

Foodies USA has no way of distinguishing the age of individuals who access the Site, so it must rely on User representations and parental approval where required.  If a child has posted personally identifying information without parental or guardian consent, the parent or guardian should contact us to remove the information and FoodiesUSA.com will promptly cooperate. Please contact admin@FoodiesUSA.com.
FoodiesUSA.com is not responsible for age verification or the accuracy of information provided by the Site’s users.
