Sharing Your Information with Third Parties

Allthecooks is about sharing information with others - friends and people in your networks. We allow you to choose the information you provide to friends and networks through Allthecooks. We share your information with third parties only in limited circumstances where we believe such sharing is 1) reasonably necessary to offer the service, 2) legally required or, 3) permitted by you. For example:

  • We may provide information to service providers to help us bring you the services we offer. Specifically, we may use third parties to facilitate our business, such as to host the service at a co-location facility for servers, to send out email updates about Allthecooks, to remove repetitive information from our user lists, to process payments for products or services, to offer an online job application process, or to provide search results or links (including sponsored links). In connection with these offerings and business operations, our service providers may have access to your personal information for use for a limited time in connection with these business activities. Where we utilize third parties for the processing of any personal information, we implement reasonable contractual and technical protections limiting the use of that information to the Allthecooks-specified purposes.
  • If you, your friends, or members of your network use any third-party applications developed using the Allthecooks Platform ("Platform Applications"), those Platform Applications may access and share certain information about you with others. Before allowing any Platform Developer to make any Platform Application available to you, Allthecooks requires the Platform Developer to enter into an agreement which, among other things, requires them to respect your privacy and strictly limits their collection, use, and storage of your information. However, while we have undertaken contractual and technical steps to restrict possible misuse of such information by such Platform Developers, we of course cannot and do not guarantee that all Platform Developers will abide by such agreements. Please note that Allthecooks does not screen or approve Platform Developers and cannot control how such Platform Developers use any personal information that they may obtain in connection with Platform Applications. In addition, Platform Developers may require you to sign up to their own terms of service, privacy policies or other policies, which may give them additional rights or impose additional obligations on you, so please make sure to review these terms and policies carefully before using any Platform Application. You can report any suspected misuse of information through the Allthecooks Platform and we will investigate any such claim and take appropriate action against the Platform Developer up to and including terminating their participation in the Allthecooks Platform and/or other formal legal action.
  • We may be required to disclose user information pursuant to lawful requests, such as subpoenas or court orders, or in compliance with applicable laws. We do not reveal information until we have a good faith belief that an information request by law enforcement or private litigants meets applicable legal standards. Additionally, we may share account or other information when we believe it is necessary to comply with law, to protect our interests or property, to prevent fraud or other illegal activity perpetrated through the Allthecooks service or using the Allthecooks name, or to prevent imminent bodily harm. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, agents or government agencies.
  • If the ownership of all or substantially all of the Allthecooks business, or individual business units owned by Allthecooks, Inc., were to change, your user information may be transferred to the new owner so the service can continue operations. In any such transfer of information, your user information would remain subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Policy.

When you use Allthecooks, certain information you post or share with third parties (e.g., a friend or someone in your network), such as personal information, comments, messages, photos, or other information, may be shared with other users. All such sharing of information is done at your own risk. Please keep in mind that if you disclose personal information when posting comments, messages, photos, or other items , this information may become publicly available.

Third Party Advertising

Advertisements that appear on Allthecooks are sometimes delivered (or "served") directly to users by third party advertisers. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. These third party advertisers may also download cookies to your computer, or use other technologies such as JavaScript and "web beacons" (also known as "1x1 gifs") to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. Doing this allows the advertising network to recognize your computer each time they send you an advertisement in order to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. In this way, they may compile information about where individuals using your computer or browser saw their advertisements and determine which advertisements are clicked. Allthecooks does not have access to or control of the cookies that may be placed by the third party advertisers. Third party advertisers have no access to your contact information stored on Allthecooks unless you choose to share it with them.

This privacy policy covers the use of cookies by Allthecooks and does not cover the use of cookies or other tracking technologies by any of its advertisers.
