Your privacy is critically important to us. At Eating Thai Food we have a few fundamental principles:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
- We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
- We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
- In our blogging products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.
It is Eating Thai Food policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Eating Thai Food 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. Eating Thai Food’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Eating Thai Food’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Eating Thai Food may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Eating Thai Food also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on WordPress.com blogs. Eating Thai Food only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Eating Thai Food’s websites choose to interact with Eating Thai Food in ways that require Eating Thai Food to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Eating Thai Food gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a newsletter to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Eating Thai Food are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Eating Thai Food collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Eating Thai Food. Eating Thai Food does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Eating Thai Food may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Eating Thai Food may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Eating Thai Food does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Eating Thai Food discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Eating Thai Food’s behalf or to provide services available at Eating Thai Food’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Eating Thai Food’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Eating Thai Food will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Eating Thai Food discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Eating Thai Food believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Eating Thai Food, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Eating Thai Food website and have supplied your email address, Eating Thai Food may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Eating Thai Food and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Eating Thai Food takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
Comments and other content submitted to our Akismet anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
