Privacy Statement

This is the policy (“Privacy Policy”) of the TasteScan partnership and its affiliates ("TasteScan") regarding the privacy of information that TasteScan may collect on this website (the "Site"). This Privacy Policy only applies to the information that TasteScan collects on the Site and does not apply to information TasteScan collects by any other method.

 

Collection of Information: When you register to use the Site or choose to submit information to the Site, TasteScan may collect information from you such as your name, postal address, email address, telephone number, or comments. Generally, the information TasteScan collects on the Site is used only for TasteScan’s own internal purposes, for example, to improve the content of the Site, to improve TasteScan’s marketing and promotional efforts, to statistically analyse the Site usage patterns on an aggregate basis, to improve TasteScan content and Site offerings, and may be used by TasteScan to contact you to provide you with information TasteScan believes may be useful to you. TasteScan believes that these uses allow it to improve the Site and better tailor it to meet users' needs.

 

Disclosure of Information: As a general rule, TasteScan will not disclose any personal information to any third parties. Exceptions include, without limitation, the following circumstances: (i) when TasteScan believes in good faith that it is required under applicable law, (ii) to protect other users of the Site, or (iii) to respond to an emergency and as set forth below. The recipients of such information may include companies or individuals that are established in countries outside of the European Economic Area and which may not have comprehensive data protection laws.

 

Information may be given to third-party contractors or other persons or entities that TasteScan engages in the course of outsourcing certain functions. Information will be shared with such third-party contractors, persons or entities only to the extent reasonably necessary for them to perform services on TasteScan’s behalf and not for any other purpose, and pursuant to reasonable confidentiality obligations. TasteScan may disclose information if legally required to do so, if requested to do so by a governmental entity or regulatory authority or if TasteScan believes in good faith that such action is necessary to comply with legal requirements or process, prevent a crime or protect national security. If you engage, or TasteScan reasonably suspects that you are engaging, in any illegal activity, TasteScan may disclose your personal information without a subpoena, warrant or other court order to the extent TasteScan determines in its sole discretion is necessary to cooperate with appropriate authorities. TasteScan reserves the right to transfer any information that TasteScan has collected about you through your use of the Site to a third party that acquires a portion of TasteScan’s business or in the event that TasteScan sells or otherwise transfers some or all of its assets related to the Site.

 

TasteScan maintains rigorous physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect personal information against unauthorised access or disclosure, accidental loss, use, alteration or destruction. TasteScan is aware of, and complies with, relevant laws and regulations regarding personal data.

Access and Correction: Under the laws of some jurisdictions, you may have the right to request access to your personal information and to request correction of it, if it is incorrect. If, at any time, you do not wish for TasteScan to contact you using the information that TasteScan has collected, or you wish to review, update or delete your personal information or you have any questions concerning our Privacy Policy, please feel free to contact TasteScan by email through its website.

 

Other Websites: The Site may contain links to third-party websites over which TasteScan has no control. TasteScan is not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of such other websites and TasteScan encourages you to review the privacy policies, if any, on such websites.

 

Cookies: TasteScan may place a small text file called a "cookie" in the browser files of your computer. The cookie itself does not contain personal information, although it will enable the Site to relate your use of the Site to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided to the Site (such as username) and to track your use of the Site. Tracking information is used to create information on user demographics and Site traffic patterns on an aggregate basis and is not connected to the identities or other personal information of individual users.

 

TasteScan reserves the right to modify this Privacy Policy from time to time, in its sole discretion, by updating this web page. It is your responsibility to review this Privacy Policy periodically.
