StockFood provides interactive environments on the Internet to enable information technology professionals from around the world to find, use and share the information they need to do their jobs better and more efficiently. We recognize and support the need to protect the privacy rights of our members through disclosure of our practices for collection and use of member information.
In general, you can visit the StockFood sites on the Web at any time without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. We log the IP address, type of operating system and browser software used by each visitor to an StockFood site, and from this information we can derive the identity of the visitor's geographic location and Internet Service Provider. We use this data in aggregate form to build higher quality, more useful facilities by analyzing the collective characteristics of our members and measuring usage of each area of our sites. We also provide statistical information based on this aggregate data to our advertisers, potential advertisers and other business partners.
In some circumstances we will ask you to provide us with certain personal information, such as when you apply for membership in ITKnowledge, make a purchase through StockFood Direct, or in connection with entering certain StockFood-sponsored contests and promotions.
We may also provide information about you to third parties who provide goods and services that may be of interest to you. In all cases where we ask you for personal information we will:
Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc, to obtain information about website use for statistical evaluation.
A cookie will NOT permit a website operator to learn any personally identifying information about you, such as your real name or address, unless you have previously provided that information to the website operator or you have set the preferences in your browser to provide this information. We note that you can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the opportunity to decide whether to accept it.
The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow generally accepted industry
standards to help protect your personal information. For instance, when you enter sensitive information,
such as a credit card number, we encrypt that information using
secure socket layer (SSL) technology. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic
storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee
its absolute security.
If a password is used to protect your account and personal information, it is your responsibility to keep your password confidential.
On our website we use the “like” button and the "share" button of the social network Facebook of Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (henceforth called "Facebook"). The “like” button is marked with the Facebook logo next to the word “like”; the button "share" is marked with the Facebook logo next to the word "share".
If you open one of our websites with a Facebook button, a direct connection is created by Facebook between your browser and the server. The contents of the plugins are transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser and in this way they become integrated into the Facebook website. This is how Facebook receives the information that you have visited our website. If you are logged in to Facebook while you are visiting the StockFood site, Facebook will assign the visit to your Facebook account. If you click the “like” or "share" buttons, the relevant information is transmitted by your browser directly to Facebook and is stored by Facebook.
To prevent Facebook from collecting personal data via the StockFood website, you simply need to stay logged out of Facebook while visiting our site.
Please visit the Facebook website (www.facebook.com/policy.php) to find out more about data protection, privacy control settings and how information is used and shared via Facebook.
If you choose to use our email referral services to tell a friend about our products or services (including images in your Lightbox, promotional campaigns, new websites, job postings, etc.), we will ask you for your friend's name and email address. We will use that information to send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the site and review the product or service you have selected. We may use a third-party provider to administer this function, but any such third-party provider may only use the information submitted to facilitate this one-time email. Neither StockFood nor any third-party provider stores this information after the email is sent.
StockFood's sites contains links to other Internet sites. We encourage all of our partners, contributors and third parties to implement policies and practices that respect the privacy of our users. However, StockFood is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites.
