Respect and Transparency
The information we collect:
- Access to your information by third parties; - The choices that are available to you regarding how the information is used and to whom it is disseminated; - Your rights to access and correct or update your personally identifiable information; and - Our pledge to have reasonable security procedures that are in place to protect the loss, misuse, or alteration of information under our control.
Information We Collect and How We Use It
Epicuren may collect two types of information about you when you visit our site: personal information (including, by way of example only, your name, address, telephone number, and email address) and non-personal, aggregate information (such as information regarding the pages on our site that you have visited and your IP address).
Personally Identifiable Information
The only personally identifying information that we collect and store about you is the information that you choose to provide to us. We may use the information to send you notifications about our products and about Epicuren events.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
We collect and use non-personally identifiable information about you in the following ways: Referrers, IP Addresses and Other Non-Personal Information
Epicuren collects information through “referrers”, IP addresses, and various environmental variables. A “referrer” is information the web browser passes along to the Epicuren web server that references the URL from which you came. The “IP address” is a number used by computers on the network to identify your computer so that data can be transmitted to you. “Environmental variables” include, among other things, the domain from which you access the Internet, the time you accessed our website, the types of web browser and operating system or platform used, the Internet address of the websites you left to visit Epicuren, the names of the pages you visit while at our website and the Internet address of the website you then visit. We collect all of this information to allow us to detect broad demographic trends, to provide information tailored to your interests and to enhance your experience on Epicuren’s website.
To help improve our website and to ensure that we make every effort to provide you with information that is of interest to you, we may merge your personally identifiable information with click-stream data and other data we have (including offline data). We will not merge your personally identifiable information in this way without giving you an opportunity to opt-out of any such merge. This opportunity to opt-out will be provided at the time and place of information collection and before data is entered into our system. We may also develop a profile based on your use of our site that does not include any personally identifiable information.
Sharing Your Information with Third Parties
We may share your personally identifiable information (such as your name, address, email address and telephone number) with our affiliates without prior consent. Except (i) as part of our security processes instituted to prevent fraud, and (ii) as part of the management of your account (e.g. credit card processing for purchases), we will not share your personally identifiable information with non-affiliated third parties without your prior consent. In the case that we share your personally identifiable information as part of our security processes or as part of the management of your account as described in this section, we will contractually obligate the third party to protect your personally identifiable information, and to use it only as directed by Epicuren.
