We may use your Personal Information to send you transactional emails (such as a password reset), informational emails (such as a newsletter), and promotional emails (such as a special offer).
We may create Anonymous Information from your Personal Information, for example by making a copy of the data collected by or created in our Product that is not linked to your Personal Information. We reserve the right to use and disclose Anonymous Information at our discretion.
How We Disclose Information About You
We may provide your Personal Information to third party service providers who work on behalf of or with us to provide functionality to our Product, such as email services and web analytics services. These service providers are obligated to use your Personal Information only to provide services to us and not to disclose your Personal Information (except pursuant to a legal requirement such as a subpoena or warrant).
If you use our Product in a language that is not English, we may work with certain organizations ("Localization Partners") to provide technical support to you in that language. We may share your Personal Information with the Localization Partner so that they can provide technical support to you. These Localization Partners are obligated to use your Personal Information only to provide technical support to you and not to disclose your Personal Information (except pursuant to a legal requirement such as a subpoena or warrant). You can contact us at email@example.com to identify any Localization Partners that provide support to you, and who as a result has access to your Personal Information. At your request, we will change the language in which you use our Product to remove you from any Localization Partners; however, this may mean that you will no longer have access to our Product in your preferred language.

Situations Where We Are Required To Disclose Your Personal Information
Your Choices Regarding Your Personal Information
We offer you choices regarding the collection, use, and sharing of your Personal Information.
You may change the information you submitted for your Account either in the Product or by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may request deletion of your Personal Information by us, but please note that we may be required (by law or otherwise) to keep this information and not delete it (or to keep this information for a certain time, in which case we will comply with your deletion request, only after we have fulfilled such requirements).

When we delete your Personal Information, we will retain data derived from you use of the Product as Anonymous Information that is no longer linked to your deleted Personal Information
Do Not Track Compliance
We do track your use of the Product over time because such tracking is required for us to track your progress through the Product and provide you with functionality in the Product that are tailored to you. Therefore, our Product does not respond to Do Not Track (“DNT”) signals. We do track the users of our Product across third party websites to provide targeted advertising directly to those websites. We do use advertising networks to present ads on third party sites, and those advertising networks and those third party sites may keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you. (For more information, see the section entitled “How We Get and Store Information About You”, above.) If you are visiting such advertising networks or third party sites, your browser allows you to set the DNT signal so those groups (particularly advertisers) know you do not want to be tracked. You can find out more about your browser’s tracking capabilities and procedures for asking not to be tracked by contacting the developer or distributer of your particular browser.
Third Party Websites, Product, Services, Content, and Links
We make reasonable efforts to protect your Personal Information, but no company, including Food Friend, can fully eliminate security risks connected to handling information on the Internet.
You acknowledge that security safeguards, by their nature, are capable of circumvention and food friend does not and cannot guarantee that your personal information will not be accessed by unauthorized persons capable of overcoming such safeguards. In particular, our Product may be used to access and transfer information, including your personal information, over the internet. You acknowledge and agree that food friend does not operate or control the internet and that unauthorized users (such as hackers) may use viruses, worms, trojan horses, and other undesirable data and software to obtain access to or damage our sites, Product, or your personal information.
Furthermore, we cannot be responsible for any of your Personal Information that you release on your own, or that you request or authorize us to release.
