THIRD-PARTY USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We may share your information with third parties when you explicitly authorize us to share your information.
Additionally, the App may use third-party service providers to service various aspects of the App. Each third-party service provider’s use of your personal information is dictated by their respective privacy policies.
The App currently uses third-party service providers. At this time, your personal information is not shared with any other third-party applications. This list may be amended from time to time in the App’s sole discretion.
Except when required by law, we will not sell, distribute, or reveal your email addresses or other personal information without your consent; however, we may disclose or transfer personal information collected through the App to third parties who acquire all or a portion of our business, which may be the result of a merger, consolidation, or purchase of all or a portion of our assets, or in connection with any bankruptcy or reorganization proceeding brought by or against us.
From time to time, we may use anonymous data, which does not identify you alone, or when combined with data from other parties. This type of anonymous data may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses. Examples of this anonymous data may include analytics or information collected from cookies.
PUBLICLY VISIBLE INFORMATION
If you create a user profile on the App or leave a comment, certain information may be publicly visible. To create a user profile, you must choose a username and password and input your email address for profile confirmation. Your email address will never be available publicly. At your option, you may also add an avatar, a profile description, and a link to your App.
You may also choose to link your Facebook and Google Account.
Users may see your username, avatar, profile description and App information.
Affiliate Program Participation
The App may engage in affiliate marketing, which is done by embedding tracking links into the App. If you click on a link for an affiliate partnership, a cookie will be placed on your browser to track any sales for purposes of commissions.
The Fed Up Foodie is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and links to Amazon.com. As part of this Amazon Associates program, the App will post customized links, provided by Amazon, to track the referrals to their App. This program utilizes cookies to track visits for the purposes of assigning commission on these sales.
On the App, you may subscribe to our newsletter, which may be used for advertising purposes. 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 App to adapt the content of future newsletters to the interests of the user. This behavior will not be passed on to third parties.
