In addition, Epicured may give you the option to provide us with certain demographic information about yourself and to upload photographs or other personally identifiable information. Unless you voluntarily provide or send us personally identifiable information, we will always ask you to submit or provide it to us before collecting your personally identifiable information. If you provide or submit your personally identifiable information to us we will provide you with the ability to review, update and/or delete your personally identifiable information, subject to our obligations to comply with legal, regulatory, internal audit and record-keeping requirements. To update and/or delete your personally identifiable information you have on file with us, please send an email here

"Automatically Collected" Information : When you visit the GetEpicured Site or open one of our HTML emails, we may record certain information from your web browser by using different types of technology, including "clear gifs" or "web beacons." This "automatically collected" information may include your Internet Protocol address ("IP Address"), web browser type, the web pages or sites that you visit just before or just after the GetEpicured Site, the pages you view on our site, and the dates and times that you visit.

"Cookies" Information : We and our operational service providers and others who host the GetEpicured Site often use technology that can recognize, collect and/or transmit information that is associated with you, but which do not personally identify you. Although the term "cookie" specifically refers to a small text file that is stored on a User's computer for record-keeping purposes, we use the term "cookie" to refer generically to any technology that can recognize, collect and/or transmit information about your visits to the GetEpicured Site. This type of information includes such data as the Internet or web domain that referred you, the type of operating system and browser you are using, the date and time of your visit, data relating to activities on the GetEpicured Site (e.g., so-called 'clickstream' data) and other technological attributes about your visit to the GetEpicured Site. This information is used to analyze trends, administer the GetEpicured Site, track user movements on the GetEpicured Site, and gather aggregate demographic information about visitors so we can continually improve the GetEpicured Site. Cookies also allow the GetEpicured Site to recognize your computer or access device each time you visit and cookies can keep count of how often you return. Cookies can also track how you use the GetEpicured Site and your preferences for features and functions, and cookies can store information such as your user name and password so that you don't have to re-enter them each time you return to visit. Cookies don't personally identify you or any particular user or individual.

When you visit the GetEpicured Site, we may send one or more cookies - a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters - to your computer. Epicured uses both session cookies and persistent cookies. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the GetEpicured Site. By using these cookies, we can "remember" what you have done on the GetEpicured Site before and personalize our site for you. These persistent types of cookies can be removed. You can disable or turn the cookie feature off by changing the settings on your Internet browser and you can also change the settings to stop your browser from automatically accepting cookies. Each web browser implements different functionality, so please refer to the manuals or technical support resources that are available in conjunction with your web browser to learn the correct way to modify your cookies set-up. If you are using the GetEpicured Site in a jurisdiction where your prior consent is required for us to deploy any particular cookies, you will be asked to accept such cookies before they are deployed. Please note that disabling cookies or declining to accept certain cookies will prevent you from accessing some of the functionality and site offerings available via the GetEpicured Site, and may also require you to re-enter certain information each time you visit or attempt to use the GetEpicured Site.

The GetEpicured Site gives you the option to end our use of your information, and to cease receiving or otherwise having access to future communications or services.

Opt Out

Third-party Advertisers, Links to Other Sites

Epicured may allow other companies, called third-party ad servers or ad networks, to serve advertisements within the GetEpicured Site. These third-party ad servers or ad networks may use technology to send, directly to your browser, the advertisements and links that appear within the GetEpicured Site. They may automatically receive your IP Address when this happens. They may also use other technologies (such as cookies, JavaScript, or web beacons) to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements and to personalize their advertising content.

Epicured may provide personally identifiable information to these third-party ad servers or ad networks except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in. Also, please note that if an advertiser asks Epicured to show an advertisement to a certain audience or audience segment and you respond to that advertisement, the advertiser or ad-server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience they were trying to reach.

You should consult the respective privacy policies of these third-party ad servers or ad networks. Epicured's Privacy Policy does not apply to, and we cannot control the activities of, such other ad servers or ad networks or their websites.

Our Commitment to Data Security

No data transmissions over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Consequently, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make reasonable efforts to ensure security on our systems. We use secure server software (SSL) and firewalls to protect your information from unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be illegally or improperly accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of such firewalls and secure server software.

If Epicured learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using the GetEpicured Site or providing personally identifiable information to us, you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of the GetEpicured Site. Epicured may post a notice on the GetEpicured Site if a security breach occurs. If this happens, you will need a web browser enabling you to view the GetEpicured Site. Epicured may also send an email to you at the email address you have provided to us in these circumstances. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. To receive a free written notice of a security breach (or to withdraw your consent from receiving electronic notice) you should notify us via email here .

Special Note to California Users

A California privacy law that went into effect on January 1, 2005, the "Shine the Light" law, allows California residents to obtain a list of third parties to whom a business has disclosed personal information if it shares such information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes. However, if a business adopts and discloses in its privacy policy a policy of not disclosing customers' personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes unless the customer first affirmatively agrees to the disclosure, the business may comply with the law by notifying the customer of his or her right to prevent disclosure of personal information and by providing a cost-free means to exercise that right.

As stated earlier in this Privacy Policy, personal information submitted at the time of registration or submission may be used for marketing and promotional purposes only with the particular user or visitor's permission. Whenever a user or visitor to the GetEpicured Site agrees to allow us to collect personal information, we provide that person with an option to prevent such information from being shared for marketing and promotional purposes with third parties. Furthermore, you may exercise this cost-free option at any time by clicking on the link below:

Opt Out

Because the GetEpicured Site has a comprehensive privacy policy and provides you with details on how you may opt-in or opt-out of the use of your personal information by third parties for direct marketing purposes, we are not required to provide you with the third party list contemplated under California's Shine the Light law.

Special Note to International Users

The GetEpicured Site is hosted in the United States. If you are a User accessing the GetEpicured Site from the European Union, Asia, or any other region with laws or regulations governing personal data collection, use, and disclosure, that differ from United States laws, please note that you are transferring your personal data to the United States which does not have the same data protection laws as the EU and other regions, and by providing your personal data you consent to: (a) the use of your personal data for the uses identified above in accordance with this Privacy Policy; and (b) the transfer of your personal data to the United States as indicated above.

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE LAWS OF THE UNITED STATES TREAT YOUR INFORMATION IN A MANNER THAT MAY BE SUBSTANTIALLY DIFFERENT FROM, AND LESS PROTECTIVE THAN, THE TREATMENT REQUIRED UNDER THE LAWS OF OTHER COUNTRIES AND JURISDICTIONS. IF YOU DO NOT WANT YOUR INFORMATION TRANSFERRED TO THE UNITED STATES, YOU SHOULD NOT SHARE YOUR INFORMATION WITH US, OR MAKE USE OF THIS WEBSITE.

TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY THE LAW OF THE COUNTRY IN WHICH YOU ARE LOCATED, YOU EXPRESSLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT YOU MAY HAVE TO REQUIRE US TO TREAT YOUR IDENTIFYING INFORMATION IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF ANY COUNTRY OR JURISDICTION OTHER THAN THE UNITED STATES. HOWEVER, THE FOREGOING WAIVER MAY NOT BE LEGALLY BINDING IN SOME COUNTRIES, SUCH AS THE MEMBER STATES OF THE EUROPEAN UNION. TO THE EXTENT IT IS NOT LEGALLY BINDING IN THE COUNTRY IN WHICH YOU ARE LOCATED, THIS FOREGOING WAIVER DOES NOT APPLY TO YOU.

In the Event of Merger or Sale

If Epicured should ever file for bankruptcy or have its assets sold to or merge with another entity, information Epicured receives from you through the GetEpicured Site is a Epicured asset and may be transferred to another party; however, in the event of such a transfer, we will require that the transferee agree to honor this Privacy Policy, as it applies to Users prior to the effective date of any such transfer, unless we are legally prohibited from doing so.
