Foodepedia Privacy Policy

At Foodepedia we collect different types of information about our users for three main reasons:

  1. To help us to improve the services we offer.
  2. To use anonymous details about our users to sell appropriate advertising space on the site. This might mean showing an advertiser how many female users we have on the site; it does not mean sharing an individual's details with an advertiser.
  3. To customise the site based on previous use of Foodepedia

Where we collect registration information from an individual, we will never share that individual's information with a third party, including an advertiser, without that user's explicit permission.

Why does Foodepedia use 'cookies'?

We use cookies to track registered or unregistered users as they travel through the site - for instance, we might use cookies to count the total number of unique users who are accessing the site over a particular period of time, or to ensure that you don't see a particular advert more than once. This information will never be shared with a third party, and is only used to make our systems more efficient.

Some advertising on the site is served by third parties. Occasionally, these third parties will serve cookies on your browser as well, for instance to gauge the effectiveness of a particular advertisement. Please note: This will not enable these third parties to access your personal details.

If you are concerned about cookies, you can turn them off in your browser. However, if you do this please note that some areas of the site may not work properly.

With your permission we will only share the information with carefully chosen, reputable and trustworthy third parties. Also, Foodepedia may provide aggregate statistics about our customers, sales, traffic patterns and related site information to reputable third-party vendors, but these statistics will include no personally identifying information. Foodepedia follows the relevant legal requirements and use all reasonable precautions to ensure only responsible third parties see the information, however we are not responsible for any breach of security or any actions of any third parties who receive the information.
