As of the "Last revised" date for this privacy policy, shown above, we store the following data in our databases:

  • Your bookmarked recipes for signed in users
  • Messages sent to use via the "Contacts" page, so that we may provide an effective customer service experience.

All of the above data are strictly used internally and not shared with the public.

3. Other third-party services we use

As of the "Last revised" date, on top of the third-party services already noted in the Cookie Policy as "3rd party", we use the following additional services that will interact with your personal data to some degree:
  • Elastic Email. To store subscribers emails and run the email newsletter service. All emails you receive from us will have an "unsubscribe" link, allowing you to stop receiving further communication.
  • We use Hotjar in order to better understand our users’ needs and to optimize this service and experience. Hotjar is a technology service that helps us better understand our users experience (e.g. how much time they spend on which pages, which links they choose to click, what users do and don’t like, etc.) and this enables us to build and maintain our service with user feedback. Hotjar uses cookies and other technologies to collect data on our users’ behavior and their devices (in particular device's IP address (captured and stored only in anonymized form), device screen size, device type (unique device identifiers), browser information, geographic location (country only), preferred language used to display our website). Hotjar stores this information in a pseudonymized user profile. Neither Hotjar nor we will ever use this information to identify individual users or to match it with further data on an individual user.

You can opt-out to the creation of a user profile, Hotjar’s storing of data about your usage of our site and Hotjar’s use of tracking cookies on other websites by following this opt-out link.

    Alternatively, you can disable the performance cookie using our data control panel. This will prevent the Hotjar code from running further starting from your next visit (reload the page)

  • We use the Facebook Pixel to understand conversion tracking, for optimisation and remarketing purposes. You can disable the tracking cookie using our data control panel.

4. Affiliate Program Participation

The Site may engage in affiliate marketing, which is done by embedding tracking links into the Site. 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.

This will not at all affect the price of your purchase, but it will entitle us to receive a percentage of the sale. It is a way for us to cover the expenses of running this site while not negatively affecting you, so we think it's a win-win.

Below are the programs we participate in

Foodaciously is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com. As part of this Amazon Associates program, the Site will post customized links, provided by Amazon, to track the referrals to their website. This program utilizes cookies to track visits for the purposes of assigning commission on these sales.
Note: Depending on your location, these links and advertisements may redirect you to the Amazon website representative for that country, like amazon.it for Italy, amazon.ca for Canada, etc. The same disclosure above applies to these links as well.

5. Children's Information

The Website does not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 16. If a parent or guardian believes that the Website has personally identifiable information of a child under the age of 16 in its database, please contact us immediately and we will use our best efforts to promptly remove such information from our records.
