Privacy Policy
Updated: March 7, 2015

Welcome to the NYC Food and Travel website aka the “Site“, which includes mobile sites of NYCFAT, LLC,. This Site is operated by NYC Food and Travel and has been created to provide information about our business, our services, recipes, New York City food, and promotional advertising to our Site visitors (“you”, “your”). This Privacy Policy details NYC Food and Travel’s policy with respect to information including personally identifiable data (“Personal Data“) and other information that is collected from Site visitors and users.

Information We Collect:
When you interact with our company through the Site, we may collect Personal Data and other information from you, as further described below:

Personal Data That You Provide Through the Site:
We collect Personal Data from you when you voluntarily provide such information, such as when you opt in to our newsletter, comment on one of our posts, respond to inquiries, allow us to access your location information (such as by using the GPS on your mobile device), or contact us directly. Wherever NYC Food and Travel collects Personal Data, we make an effort to provide a link to this Privacy Policy.
By voluntarily providing us with Personal Data, you are consenting to our use of it in accordance with this Privacy Policy. If you provide Personal Data to NYC Food and Travel, you acknowledge and agree that such Personal Data may be transferred from your current location to the offices and servers of NYCFAT, LLC.

Non-Identifiable Data:
When you interact with NYC Food and Travel through the Site, we receive and store certain non-identifiable information. Such information, which is collected passively using various technologies, cannot presently be used to specifically identify you. This Site may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of visitors to each page of our Site, and the domain names of our visitors’ Internet service providers. It is important to note that no Personal Data is available or used in this process.
In operating this Site, we may use a technology called “cookies.” A cookie is a piece of information that the computer that hosts our Site gives to your browser when you access the Site. Our cookies help provide additional functionality to the Site and help us analyze Site usage more accurately. For instance, our Site may set a cookie on your browser that allows you to access the Site without needing to remember and then enter a password more than once during a visit to the Site. In all cases in which we use cookies, we will not collect Personal Data except with your permission. On most web browsers, you will find a “help” section on the toolbar. Please refer to this section for information on how to receive notification when you are receiving a new cookie and how to turn cookies off. We recommend that you leave cookies turned on because they allow you to take advantage of some of the Site’s features.

Aggregated Personal Data:
In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of NYC Food and Travel Services, NYC Food and Travel may conduct research on its customer demographics, interests and behavior based on the Personal Data and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis, and NYC Food and Travel may share this aggregate data with its affiliates, agents and business partners. This aggregate information does not identify you personally. NYC Food and Travel may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to current and prospective business partners.
Our Use of Your Personal Data and Other Information:
NYC Food and Travel uses the Personal Data you provide in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy. If you provide Personal Data for a certain reason, we may use the Personal Data in connection with the reason for which it was provided. For instance, if you contact us by e-mail, we will use the Personal Data you provide to answer your question or resolve your problem. Also, if you provide Personal Data in order to obtain access to NYC Food and Travel Services, we will use your Personal Data to provide you with access to such services, in conjunction with such services and to monitor your use of such services. NYC Food and Travel may also use your Personal Data and other personally non-identifiable information collected through the Site to help us improve the content and functionality of the Site, to better understand our users and to improve NYC Food and Travel Services. NYC Food and Travel and its affiliates may use this information to contact you in the future to tell you about services we believe will be of interest to you. If we do so, each communication we send you will contain instructions permitting you to “opt-out” of receiving future communications. In addition, if at any time you wish not to receive any future communications or you wish to have your name deleted from our mailing lists, please contact us using the contact form below.

Our Disclosure of Your Personal Data and Other Information:
NYC Food and Travel is not in the business of selling your information. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you.

Related Companies:
We may also share your Personal Data with our Related Companies for purposes consistent with this Privacy Policy.

Agents, Consultants and Related Third Parties:
NYC Food and Travel, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include mailing information, maintaining databases and processing payments. When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function.

Legal Requirements:
NYC Food and Travel may disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation, (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of NYC Food and Travel, (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Site or the public, or (iv) protect against legal liability.

You can use the Site without providing any Personal Data. If you choose not to provide any Personal Data, you may not be able to use certain NYC Food and Travel Services.

Exclusions:
This Privacy Policy does not apply to any Personal Data collected by NYC Food and Travel other than Personal Data collected through the Site. This Privacy Policy shall not apply to any unsolicited information you provide to NYC Food and Travel through this Site or through any other means. This includes, but is not limited to, information posted to any public areas of the Site (collectively, “Public Areas”), any ideas for new products or modifications to existing products, and other unsolicited submissions (collectively, “Unsolicited Information”). All Unsolicited Information shall be deemed to be non-confidential and NYC Food and Travel shall be free to reproduce, use, disclose, and distribute such Unsolicited Information to others without limitation or attribution.

Third Parties and Links to Other Web Sites:
This Privacy Policy applies only to the Site. We do not permit third parties to collect Personal Data on our Site, but our Site may contain links to other web sites not operated or controlled by NYC Food and Travel (the “Third Party Sites”). The policies and procedures we described here do not apply to the Third Party Sites. The links from this Site do not imply that NYC Food and Travel endorses or has reviewed the Third Party Sites. We suggest contacting those sites directly for information on their privacy policies.

Social Media:
NYC Food and Travel may allow you to choose to access certain social media websites and services that are owned and/or controlled by third parties (like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) (such websites and services, collectively, the “Social Media Services”) through the Site. If you elect to access and use the Social Media Services, you will be sharing your information (which will include personal information if you elect to share such information) with those Social Media Services. As with other Third Party Sites, the information that you share with the Social Media Services will be governed by the privacy policies and terms of service of the providers of such Social Media Services and not by the policies and procedures we describe here. When you add Social Media Service accounts to NYC Food and Travel Services or log into the Site using your Social Media Services account, we will collect relevant information necessary to enable the Site to access that Social Media Service. As part of such integration, the Social Media Service will provide NYC Food and Travel with access to certain information that you have provided to such Social Media Service, and we will use, store and disclose such information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. However, please remember that the manner in which Social Media Services use, store and disclose your information is governed by the policies of the applicable Social Media Services provider, and, as a result, NYC Food and Travel shall not have any liability or responsibility for the privacy practices or other actions of Social Media Services that may be enabled within and/or otherwise accessible through the Site.
You may also have the option of posting your Services activities to Social Media Services when you access content through the Services (for example, you may post to Facebook that you performed an activity on the Service); you acknowledge that if you choose to use this feature, your friends, followers and subscribers on any Social Media Services you have enabled will be able to view such activity.
