FoodMonk automatically gathers from Website users non–identifying information of the sort that Web browsers and mobile devices, depending on their settings, may make available. That information includes may include a user's Internet Protocol (IP) address, operating system and browser type, and the locations of the Web pages the user views right before arriving at, while navigating and immediately after leaving the Website.
WEB BEACONS: A "Web Beacon" is an object that is embedded in a web page or email that is usually invisible to the user and allows website operators to check whether a user has viewed a particular web page or an email. FoodMonk may use Web Beacons to count users who have visited particular pages, viewed emails, and to deliver co–branded services. Web Beacons are not used to access users' Personal Information, as described below; instead, they are a technique FoodMonk may use to compile aggregated statistics about Website usage. Web Beacons collect only a limited set of information including cookie data, the time and date of a page or email view, and a description of the page or email on which the Web Beacon resides. You may not decline Web Beacons, however, they can be rendered mostly ineffective by declining all cookies or modifying your browser setting to notify you each time a cookie is tendered and permit you to accept or decline cookies on an individual basis.
We may share aggregated and thus non–identifying information we collect under any of the circumstances described above. We may also share this information with third parties and our affiliate companies to develop and deliver targeted advertising on our Website and on websites of third parties. We may combine non–identifying information we collect with other non–identifying information collected from or by other sources. We also may share aggregated information with third parties, including advisors, advertisers and investors, for the purpose of conducting general business analysis. For example, we may tell our advertisers the number of visitors to our Website and the most popular features or services accessed. This information does not contain any Personal Information and may be used to develop website content and services that we hope you and other users will find of interest and to target content and advertising.
LOCATION: We obtain information about your physical location, such as by use of GPS and other geo–location features in your device, or by inference from other information we collect (for example, your IP address indicates the general geographic region from which you are connecting to the Internet).
REGISTRATION: "Personal Information" is information such as a name or email address that, without more, may be directly associated with a specific person. FoodMonk collects a range of Personal Information from and about Website users. Much of the Personal Information collected by FoodMonk about users is information provided by users themselves at the time they register with the Website and make a purchase. Which may include your name, address, email address, and telephone number and, if you transact business with us, financial information such as your payment method (valid card details, type, expiration date or other financial information). We also may request information about your interests and activities, your gender, age, date of birth, username, hometown and other demographic information, and other potentially relevant information as determined by FoodMonk from time to time. Users of the Website are under no obligation to provide FoodMonk with Personal Information of any kind, although refusing to do so may prevent the user from using certain Website features. We may also periodically obtain both Personal Information and non–identifying information about you from other FoodMonk–affiliated businesses, business partners, contractors and other third parties and add it to our account information or other information we have collected. Examples of information that we may receive include: updated address information, purchase history, and additional demographic information. We may also offer you the opportunity to log in to the Website by using credentials you have established with a third party website or application (such as your Google/Facebook account) (each such account, a “Connected Account”). In such cases, we do not obtain information from these Connected Accounts beyond the information you and the Connected Account service provider provide to us in connection with logging into our Website.
COMMUNICATIONS: We may occasionally use your Personal Information, including your name and email address, to send you notifications regarding new services offered by the Website that we think you may find valuable. We may also send you service–related announcements from time to time through the general operation of the service. Generally, you may opt out of such emails through your account settings, though FoodMonk reserves the right to send you notice about your account even if you opt out of all voluntary email notifications.
DISCLOSURES: We will disclose Personal Information or other information under the following circumstances.
At times, we may look across multiple users to identify problems. In particular, we may examine your Personal Information to identify users using multiple user IDs or aliases. We may compare and review your Personal Information for accuracy and to detect errors and omissions. We may use financial information or payment method to process payment for any purchases made on our Website, enroll you in the discount, rebate, and other programs in which you elect to participate, to protect against or identify possible fraudulent transactions, and otherwise as needed to manage our business.
