Last Modified: September 1, 2016

There are many different ways you can use our service — to search for and share information, to communicate with other people or to create new content. When you share information with us, for example by creating a Taste Buff account, we can make our service even better — to show you more relevant search results, help connect you with people or to make sharing with others quicker and easier. As you use our service, we want to be clear how we're using information and the ways in which you can protect your privacy.

Our Privacy Policy explains:

Information we collect

We collect information in two ways:

We'll ask for personal information, like your name, email address, telephone number or birthday.

We collect device-specific information (such as your hardware model, operating system version, unique device identifiers, and mobile network information including phone number). Taste Buff may associate your device identifiers or phone number with your Taste Buff Account.

Log information
When you use our service or view content provided by Taste Buff, we automatically collect and store certain information in server logs. This includes:

Location information

When you use Taste Buff, we may collect and process information about your actual location. We use various technologies to determine location, including IP address, GPS, and other sensors that may, for example, provide Taste Buff with information on nearby devices, Wi-Fi access points and cell towers.

Cookies and anonymous identifiers

We and our partners use various technologies to collect and store information when you visit Taste Buff, and this may include sending one or more cookies or anonymous identifiers to your device.

How we use information we collect

We use the information we collect from all of our service to provide, maintain, protect and improve them, to develop new ones, and to protect Taste Buff and our users. We also use this information to offer you tailored content — like giving you more relevant search results.

When you contact Taste Buff, we keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing. We may use your email address to inform you about our service, such as letting you know about upcoming changes or improvements.

We use information collected from cookies and other technologies, like pixel tags, to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our services. For example, by saving your language preferences, we'll be able to have our services appear in the language you prefer. When showing you tailored ads, we will not associate a cookie or anonymous identifier with sensitive categories, such as those based on race, religion, sexual orientation or health.

Our automated systems analyze your content (including emails) to provide you personally relevant product features, such as customized search results, tailored advertising, and spam and malware detection.

We will ask for your consent before using information for a purpose other than those that are set out in this Privacy Policy.

Taste Buff processes personal information on our servers in many countries around the world. We may process your personal information on a server located outside the country where you live.
