Protecting Your Information
We respect and are committed to protecting your privacy. Grocery Business adheres to the highest standards in assuring our customers’ privacy and we promise that we will take steps to use your personal information only in ways that are compatible with this Policy. The following policies are only in effect for the web pages, newsletters, discussion lists and opt-in announcement lists owned and operated by Grocery Business Media.
Registration and Contact Information
Grocery Business Media offers access to some services that require registration. We may use your registration contact information to send notification to you of Grocery Business Media products and services by e-mail and/or postal mail. We also may share that information with our clients. Our clients may send you promotional material that is related to the topic or the service for which you registered.
Every computer connected to the Internet is given a set of numbers that serve as that computer's "Internet Protocol" IP address. When a visitor browses a page from our web site, our web servers automatically recognize that visitor's IP address. The IP address does not reveal personal information about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed our site. We use this information to examine our traffic in aggregate, and to investigate misuse of the website, its users, or to cooperate with law enforcement.
We may also use your IP address internally and share it with third parties but only to those we feel will benefit you as a valued reader.
We may also request your e-mail address or mailing address for the purposes of conducting a survey or to provide additional services (for example, subscriptions to e-mail newsletters, announcement lists or information about conferences and trade shows). Whenever we request the identity of a visitor, we will clearly indicate the purpose of the inquiry before the information is requested.
Except as stated above, we will not send you e-mail that you have not agreed to receive. If you choose to supply your postal address in an online form, you may receive postal mailings from other third party companies.
During user interaction with Grocery Business Media’s Websites, Grocery Business Media may use a browser feature called a 'cookie' to collect information anonymously concerning website user patterns. A cookie is a small text file containing a unique identification number that identifies your browser - but not you - to Grocery Business Media’s computers each time you visit certain website pages. This helps Grocery Business Media to improve the online experience of users.
Even though Grocery Business Media may assign your computer a cookie, Grocery Business Media will not combine information gathered by a cookie with personally identifiable information.
Grocery Business Media takes reasonable precautions to protect your Personal Information. In all cases, information is retained in secure facilities, protected from unauthorized access and kept only as long as is reasonably required.
We offer the use of a secure server. All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our Payment gateway provider's database only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, Grocery Business Media does not represent, warrant, covenant or guarantee that your Personal Information transmitted over the Internet will be protected against loss, misuse or alteration and does not accept any liability for Personal Information lost, misused or altered during such transmission.
If you still have unresolved concerns with respect to the treatment of your Personal Information by Grocery Business Media, you may address these concerns, in writing, to Grocery Business Media's Chief Privacy Officer at the following address:
