Restaurant Girl™, LLC (the “Company”) is committed to safeguarding your privacy online. The Company takes this commitment very seriously. We will not give, sell or otherwise share any of your personal information with any third party without your approval. Please read the following policy to understand how your personal information will be treated.
How Your Information Is Gathered.
The Company collects information in several manners. We may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our website. You may from time to time be asked to complete a registration form that may require you to give us contact information, such as your name, email address, zip code, unique identifiers, and demographic information, when registering for the Company’s services or access to restaurant information. In the course of using our site, we may automatically track additional information, such as the URL that you just came from, which URL you go to next and what browser you were using. This sort of information is typically collected automatically by many sites.
We may also collect comments provided by other users in our feedback area. Additional information may be obtained from many different sources, such as personal correspondence or emails that you send to us or that we may receive for third parties, other communications or activities posted to our site.
How the Information Is Used.
The Company uses personal information for internal purposes only, to provide those services that you may be requesting, to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to statistically analyze site usage, to improve our content and service offerings, to customize our site’s content and layout and to further enhance the services that we provide. We may also use personally identifiable information about you to deliver information to you that, in some cases, is targeted to your interest, such as targeted banners and promotions. You can always remove yourself from receiving such information by notifying us. We provide a way for you to unsubscribe from our newsletters via a link at the bottom of every newsletter that is emailed to you.
Mailing information, such as your email address, may be used in rare situations for us to contact you regarding an administrative issue, and address and billing information may be used if you elect to use our escrow services, or in the event that we are entitled to a commission for a sale conducted through our website.
We may also use information in the file that we maintain regarding your current and past activities in the unlikely event that we need to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems or otherwise to enforce our Terms and Conditions of Use Agreement. At times, cross-sectional information may be used of multiple users to identify problems or resolve disputes.
In order to defer some of the costs of doing business, and thus, to be able to charge the user lower fees, Company generates additional revenue by way of delivering targeted advertisements. When delivering such advertisements, Company serves as the middleman, delivering the advertisement according to certain criteria requested by the advertisers, such as particular demographics. Company will then display the advertisement to users who meet that criteria. In this process, the third-party advertiser does not have access to your individual account information.
With Whom Does Company Share Your Information?
As a general rule, the Company does not disclose any of your personally identifiable information, unless we have your specific permission, or under special circumstances, such as when we reasonably believe that the law requires that we do so. We may aggregate personally identifiable information and disclose such information in the aggregate as historical, statistical data for marketing and promotional situations. However, in such situations, it is not possible to personally identify you or your personal information. Certain information, such as a password, or other vital information would not be disclosed in such aggregate disclosures.
The Company cooperates with all law enforcement inquiries and with third-parties who are enforcing their intellectual property or other proprietary rights. We, of course, also provide that information which is necessary to facilitate the actual, ongoing commercial activities conducted on the Company website. All recipients of the transaction agree to the restrictions of how they can use and disclose such information.
In sum, although we use industry standard practices to protect your privacy, we do and cannot promise, and you cannot expect, that your personally identifiable communications will always remain private.
Your Use of Other Users’ Information.
By entering into our Terms and Conditions of Use Agreement, you agree that any personally identifying information that you obtain through the Company website or through a Company-related communication or a Company-facilitated transaction, you are granted a limited license to use such information only for the furthering of the subject matter of the Company-related transaction, including Company-facilitated services. Upon conclusion of the transaction, you will remove and delete all copies in all forms of the personally-identifying third party information, other than one copy of only that data which is necessary for archiving of the transaction, unless you receive explicit, specific written approval from the owner of the personal information that you need not do so.
Updating and Correcting Personally Identifying Information
Time to time you may be asked to register with the Company. If registration is asked of you, you will be able and allowed to change your personally identifying information available at the Company, including your email address, your name, unique identifiers, and demographic information. Upon your request, we will remove any of the above personally identifying information other than your name and user ID. To make this request, email us at email@example.com. We will send you a confirmation of the information that you requested us to remove and the date of its removal. We will retain in our files certain information that you have requested us to remove for different purposes, such as to resolve potential dispute, troubleshoot problems and otherwise enforce our User Agreement. Furthermore, certain circumstances could prevent the complete and permanent removal of such information from our databases such as technical constraints and the periodic backing up and archiving of our systems for disaster recovery purposes.
