In this document, the term "personally identifiable information" means identifiable information, about an individual who uses or visits the shcook.org website, that is collected online and maintained by the owner of the website (SHCOOK LLC).
When you access our website, we collect the following categories of information:
Most web browsers allow you to disable cookies. If you disable cookies, the features of our website that require you to be Logged-in will not function.
When other SHCOOK members use the Search feature of our website to find potentially compatible members with whom to share cooking, you may be displayed in their Search results. If you are listed in the Search results, the member would see your SHCOOK username, your avatar (uploaded photo) and other data that you’ve entered including your food/cooking preferences. The member would not see your email address or other personally identifiable information that you’ve entered on the Account page.
We do not have advertisements on our website and we do not sell or distribute your personally identifiable information to third parties except in the following cases:
Some web browsers have a "Do not track" (DNT) setting which allows you to request that your access to web pages on any site not be tracked. If you activate the "DNT" setting, our analytics software will respect such setting and will avoid including information about your page/site accesses in the analytics database and reports. Your page accesses may still be written to a log file on our server.
If you enable the "Do not track" feature in your browser, all other SHCOOK website functionality remains available, including features that use/require personally identifiable information.
We use industry-standard techniques for protecting your data, both when it is transferred over the Internet and when it is stored on our server. While no one can guarantee that data will never be accessed by unauthorized persons, we do everything that we can to protect your data and use of our site.
We urge you to create passwords that are difficult to guess, to otherwise carefully protect your password and to log off of the SHCOOK website when done using it.
When you enter data on our website, it is stored on one of our servers which is unlikely to be located in your jurisdiction and may not be located in your country. When you use our website, your data travels over the Internet from your location to that of one of our servers.
We currently make our website available for use by people in the U.S. However, we cannot prevent people anywhere in the world from accessing our website and therefore potentially accessing the data that you have entered on the site.
Use of our website is available to people who are at least 14 years old. We do not accept personally identifiable information from people under 14 years of age. If you are under 14 years old, do not use the SHCOOK website. If we learn of any personally identifiable information that has been entered by someone younger than 14 years old, we will immediately remove that information.
All of the information that you enter on the SHCOOK website can later be modified or removed on the website. If you need any help changing or removing your information, please contact us via our 'Contact' page or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
