This Policy explains the TasteAmerica.co.uk (“Site”, “Taste America”, “we”, “us”, “our”) approach to the online information collection, storage, and use, as well as the choices you as a user of the Site can make about your own information.
The Taste America Privacy Promise
Taste America values your privacy and the security of your data is extremely important to us. This policy sets out where and how Taste America collects your personal information and how it will be used, as well as your rights over any personal information we hold about you. We handle your personal data only for core business purposes such as marketing, accounts, and record keeping.
We will only process your personal information in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679 any other UK privacy legislation in force from time to time.
We do not collect personally identifiable information about you without your knowledge and consent. (Personally, identifiable information is information that can be used to identify a specific individual, for example, name, address, telephone number, or email address.)
We only collect personally identifiable information about you if you voluntarily supply it, for example by using our Site contact form, emailing us, or completing a purchase.
We do automatically collect non-personally identifiable information when you visit our Site, for example, the type of browser and operating system you are using. We track this type of anonymous information in order to analyze trends, administer the Site, track your actions and use of the Site, record transactions, and gather demographic information for aggregate use.
How We Use Information We Collect
As stated above, we use non-personally identifiable information to review Site usage patterns, for example, to improve the design and content of the Site.
We use the personally identifiable information you provide to us when you contact Taste America directly, for example through our contact form, to respond to your specific inquiry or to facilitate the supply of any goods you purchase through us.
If you want to be a customer or receive our newsletter you must register on the Taste America Site. Information collected includes name, email, country, zip/postal code, address, city, telephone number, and fax number.
We use a feature of your Internet browser called a “cookie” on the Taste America Site. A cookie is a very small text file that your web browser places on your computer's hard drive which allows us to help you get the best out of your visit to our Site and improve your user experience.
Product Information and Offers
The email address information that you provide to us may be used to contact you about other product offers from Taste America. We may also use that information to let you know of additional products and services from other companies that you might be interested in. If you do not wish to receive these kinds of communications, you can opt-out by informing us about using the Site’s contact form.
Significant Announcements by Email
Taste America may also use your registered name and email address to provide you with significant announcements about Site functions or services that you are registered to use, about the Site, about the fulfillment of a specific transaction you have requested, or about other significant developments that may affect your use of the TasteAmerica.co.uk. You can always opt-out of our emails but please consider our need to contact you in the event you have made a purchase.
Additional Information for Specific Purposes
This website may request additional information from you on product order forms or other online transaction forms. Such forms may require you to provide contact information (such as name and mailing or shipping address) and payment information (such as credit card number and credit card expiration date). Information that you provide in this way may be used for billing and accounting purposes, for recording products and services that you have licensed, bought, or downloaded, and to fill your orders. TasteAmerica.co.uk may use this contact information to communicate about orders, products, services, or fees or charges
TasteAmerica.co.uk may use a credit card processing company or payment processing company such as PayPal, Braintree, or Barclays Merchant Services to process payments for goods. These companies have access to user information in order to perform their functions. Learn more about PayPal’s privacy practices here.
Feedback to Taste America
The Site has a contact form for collecting feedback, so users can submit comments, suggestions, or inform us of any bugs found. Taste America may collect your name and email address in order to follow up with you or thank you for such feedback.
We employ appropriate technical and organizational security measures to prevent unauthorized access to information that we collect online, for example, the use of SSL encryption. We do not collect or store your credit card or other financial information directly. Instead, we use third-party professional payment processors such as PayPal and Barclays Merchant Services with sophisticated security controls.
Correction/Updating of Personal Information
If you provide personally identifiable information changes (such as an email address), Taste America will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update, or remove your personal data. This can usually be done by updating your account details or sending a request through the website’s contact form or using the opt-out link in an email. You can also email us at Privacy@tasteamerica.co.uk.
Release of Information for Legal Reasons
Taste America may release information concerning your use of the Site, including, but not limited to, registration information, and network records when it believes in good faith that such release is appropriate to comply with the law (for example, pursuant to a statutory demand, subpoena, warrant or court order), to protect against the fraudulent, abusive or unlawful use of the Site, to protect the Site’s rights or property, enforce any contract between you and us, or if we reasonably believe that a situation involving danger of death or injury to any person requires disclosure.
International Data Flows
The personal information you provide to us will remain in the UK and will not be transferred to other countries, the laws of which may differ from those of the European Union.
In addition to our safeguards, your personal data is protected in the UK by the Data Protection Act 1998. This provides amongst other things that the data we hold about you should be processed lawfully and fairly. It should be accurate, relevant, and not excessive. The information should, where necessary, be kept up to date and not retained for longer than is necessary. It should be kept securely to prevent unauthorized access by other people. You have the right to see what is held about you and correct any inaccuracies. You have the option at any time to request that we:
- provide a copy of the personal information we hold relating to you;
- update or remove any such personal information; and
- stop contacting you.
