Automatically Collected Information
When you visit and/or browse our website (this includes moving around from page to page, leaving a comment, signing up for email newsletters, and/or contacting us in any form), we automatically receive and collect information which may in certain circumstances be considered personal information. This type of collection is explained below:
Just like many modern websites, www.foodandtable.com uses web log files. Log files automatically record basic information about anyone who visits www.foodandtable.com. The information in our log files helps us improve user experience by providing analytical information that will help us design a better website for you.
Web log information includes:
- your Internet Protocol (IP) address
- the type of browser and operating system that you use
- the date and time in which you used the website
- pages visited and links clicked
- how a user moves around our site
- referring pages (where a user came from into our site)
- exit pages (where a given user left our site from)
This information is used as research to study trends within our site, to see what content is working better than others, and to improve our website and user experience.
Google Analytics Tools:
We use analytics services by Google Analytics to collect information about the use of this website. Such information includes: number of visits to this website, what pages are visited, how a user moves around through the website, popularity of certain content, entry/exit pages, how much time is spent on the website or on certain pages. All IP addresses are anonymized. We use this data to learn about how our website works and to improve user experience by continuing to build on what works, and change what doesn’t. The information we receive via google analytics is not shared with any other third-party service or company.
You can opt out of google analytics by visiting this website.
Newsletter Analytics Reports:
All newsletters sent may contain tracking pixels. The pixel is embedded in emails and allows an analysis of the success of online marketing campaigns. Because of these tracking pixels, we may see if and when you open an email and which links within the email you click. Also, this allows the Website to adapt the content of future newsletters to the interests of the user. This behavior will not be passed on to third parties.

Embedded content from other websites:
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Links To Other Sites:
We may at times include other website links in this website. We cannot guarantee the privacy practices of those websites. If you submit any personal information to those sites, it will be subject to their respective privacy policies.
Display Ads / Retargeting Ads:
This website may engage in affiliate marketing using embedded tracking links. As required by law, all affiliate links will be clearly marked. If you click on a link that is labeled ‘affiliate link’ next to it, then a cookie will be placed on your browser for a given period of time in order to track any sales for purposes of commissions. The ‘cookie’ allows the merchant to know what website that sale came from in order to provide payment. This comes at no extra cost to the consumer. Our website simply gets a small commission from that sale.
At this time we do not have affiliate links on the website foodandtable.com.
Sensitive Personal Information:
At no time will this website request, nor should you submit to this website, any sensitive personal information such as your social security number, financial information, information regarding race or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious beliefs, or health information.
