At Special Foodie®, LLC d/b/a Accommodating Table® (https://www.accommodatingtable.com), we recognize the importance of your privacy. It’s understandable that you may be concerned with the data you provide to us as a Host or that is collected by us from you or your dining Guests and how we use and disclose it.
1. The Data the Website Collects
1.1. Personal Information Provided by You
1.2. Personal Information Collected Automatically
Our servers may also automatically collect information about you, your online behavior and your computer, mobile or other device. The information collected may include, without limitation, the make, model, settings, specifications (e.g., CPU speed, connection speed, browser type, operating system, device identifier) and geographic location of you and/or your computer, mobile or other device, as well as date/time stamp, IP address, pages visited, time of visits, content viewed, ads viewed, the site(s), application(s), destination(s), and/or service(s) you arrived from, and other clickstream data.
1.3. Personal Data Provided by Third Parties
2. How the Website Uses Data About You
As an Accommodating Table member, you will receive our transactional business communications (e.g. email address confirmation, administrative messages, etc.) at your email address. If you wish to opt-out of receiving them, you can select the Unsubscribe option at the bottom of the communication. We may also deliver information that is targeted to your interests,
When you create an account and/or Food Profile, we ask for personal information such as your name and email address. This personal information is used by us to provide you with materials via email that we may periodically provide you to complement your use of the Website. You may opt-out of our provision of such materials by following the instructions in the email. We also store the personal data you provide in your account and Food Profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their own personal information at any time (except you cannot change your username once you have registered for the site). Website administrators can also see and edit or delete that information. Website administrators do not have access to the content of any individual Food Profiles except to the extent that a user has a Food Profile in the personal Guestbook of an administrator.
2.3. Email A Guest
When a Host uses our Food Profile and recipe matching services, the Host provides the Guest diner’s name and email address. Accommodating Table will automatically send that Guest a one-time email confirming their password once they have registered in order to complete a Food Profile or other content. Accommodating Table uses a Guest’s email address to send this one-time email and to link a Guest’s completed Food Profile with their Host’s account. Accommodating Table users may not use our Food Profile request service to send unwanted spam to others. If a Guest has received a request from a Host to complete a Food Profile, but does not wish to Register on the Website and provide personally identifying data, the Guest’s email will not be used by AccommodatingTable.com for any purpose and will be stored in that Host’s Guestbook until deleted by the Host. Guests who register and complete a Food Profile will have that Food Profile linked to the Host’s account who invited them to the site. However, if another Host enters that exact Guest email into their Guestbook, the site will automatically share that Guest Food Profile with the new Host. This eliminates the need for a Guest to complete the same Food Profile multiple times for multiple Hosts. AccommodatingTable.com does not have access to the content of any users’ individual Food Profiles.
2.5. Contests, Promotions, Offers, and Surveys
From time to time our Website may request personal information from users via contests, promotions, offers and surveys. Participation in these contests, promotions, offers, and surveys is completely voluntary and users therefore may choose whether to disclose personal information in connection with these activities. Personal Information requested in these activities might include contact information (e.g., your name and shipping address) and demographic information (e.g., zip code or age level). We might use this information to notify you in the event you have won and to award prizes. We use information we collect in surveys for internal purposes, such as to ascertain the use of this Website and improve its usefulness to users.
2.6. Customer Service
We collect personal information when users submit comments, questions or suggestions to our customer service department. We use the information users provide to respond to their submissions and use the ideas to make site improvements.
2.7. Personal Data Provided to Third Parties
From time to time we may allow access to our database by third parties that provide us with services, such as technical maintenance, market research and other services, but only for the purpose of and to the extent necessary to provide those services. We may also provide your information to our advertisers, so that they can provide ads that meet your needs or match your interests. While we may seek to require such third parties to follow appropriate privacy policies and will not authorize them to use this information except for the express purpose for which it is provided, we do not bear any responsibility for any actions or policies of third parties. Accommodating Table also allows access to publicly viewed site information by third-party search engine “crawlers” (such as Google). Accommodating Table blocks access by these engines to personal information beyond the publicly viewed information agreed to by you when you registered for the site.
2.8. Legal Compliance
We may also provide access to our database in order to cooperate with official investigations or legal proceedings initiated by governmental and/or law enforcement officials, as well as private parties, including, for example, in response to subpoenas, search warrants, court orders or other legal process.
2.9. Business Purpose and Involuntary Transfers
Information about you, including personal information, might be disclosed and/or transferred as part of any merger, acquisition, debt financing, sale of company assets, as well as in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership in which personally identifiable information could be transferred to third parties as one of the business assets of the company.

3.2. Log Files
We may track log files on the Website (i.e., we log your computer’s IP address into our log files when you visit a page on the Website) and use them to analyze trends, administer the Website, track your movements on the Website, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.

7. Information Security and Notification
We use reasonable measures to maintain the security of your Registration Information. The Website is protected by our server’s fire wall. In addition, we constantly monitor the site for any suspicious registration and delete their access to the site within 24 hours of their registration. However, because no data transmission is completely secure, and no system of physical or electronic security is impenetrable, we cannot guarantee the security of the information you send to us or the security of our servers, networks or databases, and by using the Website you agree to assume all risk in connection with the information sent to us or collected by us when you access, visit and/or use the Website, including, without limitation, your personally identifiable information or Registration Information, and we are not responsible for any loss of such information or the consequences thereof.
Any information that is not personally identifiable information but is publicly displayed on the Website (such as your name and photos associated with recipes accepted for inclusion) might appear in the results of searches conducted on Internet search engines depending upon the search engine’s indexing practices. If you upload recipe images to the Website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the Website can download and extract any location data from images on the Website. Moreover, if you elect to store information, such as your personally identifiable information or other Registration Information, where others may access it, we are not responsible for any loss of such information or the consequences thereof. If you lose a computer, mobile or other device, or it is stolen, that contains your personally identifiable information or other Registration Information, it is up to you to take all the steps necessary to protect yourself.
We use reasonable security measures to store and maintain personally identifying information so as to protect it from loss, misuse, alteration or destruction by unauthorized parties while it is under our control. We use secure socket layer (“SSL”) encryption when transmitting certain kinds of information over the Internet. In the unlikely event that we believe that the security of your information in our possession or control may have been compromised, we will notify you within 30 days of identifying a breach. We will contact you via email, using the email address provided in your account.

To opt-out from messages from these third parties, or from any other communications that you receive directly from third parties, you must contact them directly in order to opt-out.
