HOW LEARN FROM A CHEF USES THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We may use your information for any of the following reasons:
We may display information related to your business, including your name or your business’s name, publicly on your profile, except to the extent we tell you we will not display such information. If the information you provide us upon signing up for an account differs from the information you provide us as part of the verification data we collect, we have sole discretion in determining which information will be displayed publicly on your profile. We may aggregate and/or de-identify information collected through the Website. We may use de-identified or aggregated data for any purpose, including without limitation for research and marketing purposes and may also share such data with any third parties, including without limitation, advertisers, promotional partners, sponsors, event promoters, and/or others.
We may, either directly or through third parties we engage to provide services to us, review, scan, or analyze your communications with other users exchanged via the Website or as otherwise described in this Policy for fraud prevention, risk assessment, regulatory compliance, investigation, product development, research and customer support purposes. For example, as part of our fraud prevention efforts, we may scan and analyze messages to prevent fraud or improper actions. We may also scan, review or analyze messages for research and product development purposes, as well as to debug, improve and expand product offerings. By using the Website or engaging in off-Website communications tracked by Learn From A Chef, you consent that Learn From A Chef, in its sole discretion, may, either directly or through third parties we engage to provide services to us, review, scan, analyze, and store your communications, whether done manually or through automated means.
WHEN LEARN FROM A CHEF DISCLOSES YOUR INFORMATION
Unless otherwise described in this Policy, we may also share the information that we collect from you through the Website as follows:
ONLINE ANALYTICS AND TAILORED ADVERTISING
We may use third-party web analytics services on the Website, such as those of Google Analytics. The information collected by the technology will be disclosed to or collected directly by these service providers, who use the information to evaluate your use of the Website. We also use Google Analytics for certain purposes related to advertising, as described in the following section. To prevent Google Analytics from using your information for analytics, you may install the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-on.
PRIVACY OF MINORS
Our services are not designed for minors under 18. Only persons 18 years of age or older may use the Website. If we discover that an individual under 18 has provided us with personal information, we will close the account and delete the personal information to the extent required by the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act. We may, where permitted by law, retain certain information internally for purposes described in this Policy.
We employ physical, procedural, and technological security measures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access or disclosure. Learn From A Chef may use encryption, passwords, and physical security measures to help protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure. No security measures, however, are 100% failsafe. Therefore, we do not promise and cannot guarantee, and thus you should not expect, that your personal information or communications will not be collected, disclosed and/or used by others. You should take steps to protect against unauthorized access to your password, phone, and computer by, among other things, signing off after using a shared computer, choosing a robust password that nobody else knows or can easily guess, keeping your log-in and password private, and not recycling passwords from other websites or accounts. Learn From A Chef is not responsible for the unauthorized use of your information nor for any lost, stolen, or compromised passwords, or for any activity on your Account via unauthorized password activity.
LINKS TO EXTERNAL PLATFORMS
The Website may contain links to other websites or resources over which Learn From A Chef does not have any control. Such links do not constitute an endorsement by Learn From A Chef of those external websites. You acknowledge that Learn From A Chef is providing these links to you only as a convenience, and further agree that Learn From A Chef is not responsible for the content of such external websites or the protection and privacy of information you provide while visiting such external websites.
