INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE.

Personally Identifiable Information
At various locations on our Site, such as when you register, subscribe, contact us, or participate in promotions or Interactive Areas (“Interactive Areas” include chat rooms, bulletin boards, message boards or auditoriums, article or blog comment areas, SMS text messaging, mobile alerts, and mobile e-mail updates), we may request that you supply us with personally identifiable information (e.g., name, e-mail address, postal addresses, home, work and/or mobile telephone number, birth date, gender and/or credit card information).  We may survey visitors about various topics, including local restaurant picks, food preferences, travel experiences, favorite products and how we can improve our Site and services.  Response to our surveys is entirely voluntary.  We may also provide you with an opportunity to learn more information about carefully selected companies who we think can offer you services and products of interest to you.  If you do not want your personally identifiable information collected, please do not submit it to us.  When you do provide us with personally identifiable information, we may use that information to better understand your needs and how we can improve our Site, restaurants, service offerings, products, and your browsing experience in order to provide you with information, marketing and advertising tailored to your specific interests and preferences.  We may also use that information to contact you, for example, to answer a question or respond to a comment you have submitted, request feedback, distribute our newsletters, notify the winner(s) of any promotions sponsored by us or conducted through the Site and allow participation in Interactive Areas.  In addition, we may use your personal information to keep you up to date on the latest product and event announcements, restaurant openings, special events, book signings, appearances and for communicating other information we think you would like to hear about.
Consistent with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, we do not knowingly request or accept personal information from children under the age of thirteen (13) without verifiable consent.  If we learn that personally identifiable information of persons under thirteen (13) years of age has been collected on the Site, we will take the appropriate steps to delete this information.

Non- Personally Identifiable Information
In some cases, when you visit our Site, we may also collect information that is non-personally identifiable information or information that, by itself, cannot be used to identify or contact you.  Examples of this type of information include the type of Internet browser or computer operating system you use, demographic information (your age, gender, income, education, profession, zip code, etc.), the date and time you visited our Site, the pages you accessed, the name of the website from which you linked to our Site and other anonymous data involving your use of our Site.  We also may ask for additional information (e.g., your favorite foods, brands and interests) which you have the option not to provide.  This policy in no way restricts or limits our collection and use of aggregate information and we may use and share this information to analyze trends, to gather broad demographic information for aggregate use and for marketing and promotional purposes.  This information is not linked to any personally identifiable information.

Cookies, Web Beacons & Similar Technologies
We may use “cookies” – small pieces of data or text files that are stored on your computer tied to information about you.  This information will help us enhance your experience on the Site (e.g., the option of saving your username and password for the Site by placing a cookie on your personal computer).  Cookies can store non-personally identifiable information, such as what websites, pages, or advertisements your browser has accessed and may be tied to the personal information you knowingly choose to provide to us.
Cookies help establish a user session and allow our server to correctly provide site users with the appropriate information, advertisements and services.  We use both persistent and session cookies.  Session cookies exist only for as long as your browser remains open.  When the session ends, the browser is closed and the cookies go away.  Persistent cookies, in contrast, last from visit to visit.  Persistent cookies are saved on a visitor’s computer by the browser and do not go away when you exit your browser.  We may use both types of cookies to enable us to collect aggregate information on the usage patterns of our Site, such as what areas of the Site are visited most often, so we can tailor our Site to user preferences.
Some of our advertisers may occasionally serve you cookies as well.  We do not have control over cookies placed by advertisers.  We may also use advertising service vendors to help present advertisements on the Site. These vendors may use cookies, web beacons, or similar technologies to serve you advertisements tailored to interests you have shown by browsing on this and other websites you have visited, to determine whether you have seen a particular advertisement before and to avoid sending you duplicate advertisements.  In doing so, these vendors may collect non-personal information from you (see above for more information).  The use of cookies, web beacons, or similar technologies by these advertising service vendors is subject to their own privacy policies, not ours, and Service Provider disclaims all liability in connection therewith.  If you do not want the benefits of these advertising cookies, you may be able to opt-out by visiting http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp.
Most Internet browsers can be set to refuse to accept cookies, although this may affect your Internet experience.  You can also erase cookies that are already on your computer, block all cookies or receive a warning before a cookie is stored.  Please refer to your browser instructions or “help” screen to learn more about these functions.
We may use “web beacons” (also known as Internet tags, pixel tags, single-pixel GIFs, clear GIFs, invisible GIFs, 1-by-1 GIFs, and web bugs) - tiny graphic files placed on a Web page which send a signal when a user has visited that page - allowing the Site to collect standard access information, such as time and date of a page view, and a description of the page on which the web beacon resides.  We use web beacons to help manage the effectiveness of our online advertising and to gather access information, such as counting the users who have visited those pages and compiling aggregated statistics about Site usage.

E-MAIL COMMUNICATIONS.
When you provide us with your e-mail address when you subscribe to our e-mail list or electronic newsletter, we may share your e-mail with certain third parties that we believe may be of interest to you.  We may use e-mail addresses to occasionally deliver information relevant to you, such as special events, benefits, newsletters, promotions, surveys and notification of other noteworthy news items.  If you send us an e-mail with questions or comments, we may use the personal information you provide to respond to your questions or comments, and we may save your questions or comments for future reference.  However, we will provide you with the option to change your preferences and “opt-out” of receiving those communications.  You may request at any time that we not e-mail you in the future by clicking the “unsubscribe” link which is included at the bottom of any e-mail communication that you receive from us and hitting send, or by contracting us at unsubscribe@lexiestarrrecipes.com.  When contacting us by e-mail, please insert “UNSUBSCRIBE” in the subject line and the body of the message.  If you unsubscribe, you should assume that your request has been received and is being processed.  Please allow ten (10) business days from when the request was received to complete the removal of your e-mail address from our database as some of our promotions may have been in process before submitting such request we will make reasonable efforts to discontinue these e-mail communications as soon as practicable.

CERTAIN THIRD PARTY TRANSACTIONS.
We may disclose personal information to our affiliates, subsidiaries, partners, contractors and permitted agents who assist us in providing services in connection with this Site and our business.  For example, when you shop for certain Lexie Starr Recipes products on this Site, you will be redirected to the lexiekitchen.com website.  Lexiekitchen.com is hosted by a third party and any information you provide while on the website (signing up for newsletters and/or purchasing products) will be governed by its privacy statement (please see the section entitled “Third Party Websites” below for more information).  In addition, we also allow access to our database by third parties we engage to assist us in providing you certain other services.  We may hire a company to facilitate our online services or conduct surveys on our behalf.  In these instances, we may need to share your personal information.  We require these companies use your personal information only to provide that particular product or service and do not authorize them to use your personal information for any other reason.  In addition, if some or all of the assets of our business are sold to a third party, such third party will be entitled to use the information disclosed by users of our Site.  Both the personal and non-personal information that we or other third parties have collected may be transferred as part of the transaction.

INFORMATION SHARING.
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose information as required by law, rule or regulation or where we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to protect its rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, as requested by a governmental or law enforcement authority or other legal process.  This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.  In addition, we reserve the right to use or disclose non-personal information in any way we see fit.

THIRD PARTY WEBSITES.
Our Site contains links to other websites.  Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of those websites and we do not promote or endorse any such other websites.  We encourage you to be aware when you leave our Site and to read the privacy statements of every website that collects personally identifiable information.  This Policy applies solely to information collected by our Site and does not cover information collected elsewhere, including without limitation on websites linked to from the Site.

SECURITY.
Our Site has taken reasonable security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of information under our control.  We safeguard the security of the data you send us with physical, electronic, and other procedures.  However, it is not possible to guarantee the security or integrity of information disclosed online.  As no data transmission over the Internet is completely secure, we urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet.  Because no physical or electronic security is impenetrable, by using the Site, you agree to assume all risks in connection with the information sent to us or collected by us when using the Site.

CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS.
Pursuant to California Civil Code section 1798.83, a California resident who has provided personal information to a business with whom he/she has established a business relationship has the right to request from that business certain information regarding whether the business has disclosed personal information to any third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes.  In general, if the business has made such a disclosure of personal information, the business is required to provide a list of all third parties to whom such personal information was disclosed in the preceding calendar year, as well as a list of the categories of personal information that were disclosed, upon receipt of a request by a California resident.  However, under the law, a business is not required to provide the above-described lists if the business adopts and discloses to the public (in its privacy policy) a policy of not disclosing personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes unless the customer first affirmatively agrees to the disclosure, as long as the business maintains and discloses this policy.  Rather, the business may comply with the law by notifying the customer of his or her right to prevent disclosure of personal information and providing a cost free means to exercise that right.  As described in our Privacy Policy, Lexie Starr Recipes  does not disclose such personal information to any third party for its direct marketing purposes without consent.
