South Jersey Food Scene Privacy Policy

This privacy policy describes how South Jersey Food Scene uses and protects any information that you give us. We are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. If you provide us with personal information through South Jersey Food Scene, you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, South Jersey Food Scene collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. South Jersey Food Scene’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how South Jersey Food Scene’s visitors use its website. From time to time, South Jersey Food Scene may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

South Jersey Food Scene also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. South Jersey Food Scene does not use IP addresses to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to South Jersey Food Scene choose to interact with South Jersey Food Scene in ways that require South Jersey Food Scene to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that South Jersey Food Scene gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who use our website comment feature to provide a username and email address.

In each case, South Jersey Food Scene collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with South Jersey Food Scene. South Jersey Food Scene does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities such as commenting within the website, or website related merchandise purchases (to be offered in the future).

All of the information that is collected on South Jersey Food Scene will be handled in accordance with GDPR legislation.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

South Jersey Food Scene discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of project administrators, employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on South Jersey Food Scene’s behalf or to provide services available through South Jersey Food Scene, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using South Jersey Food Scene, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

South Jersey Food Scene will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to project administrators, employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, South Jersey Food Scene discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, if you give permission to have your information shared, or when South Jersey Food Scene believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of South Jersey Food Scene, third parties, or the public at large.

We use the information you provide to register for an account, or for merchandise purchases (to be offered at a later date).

We will not sell or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so.

We would like to send you email marketing communication which may be of interest to you from time to time. If you have consented to marketing, you may opt out later.
