Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting The Vegetarian Channel. The Vegetarian Channel is committed to honoring the privacy of our members and visitors. This privacy policy covers personally identifiable information shared through The Vegetarian Channel's Service.

What information does The Vegetarian Channel receive and how do we use it? When you register for The Vegetarian Forum or add your website to The Vegetarian Channel, we ask you for your name, contact information, preferences, and certain demographic information. This information lets us provide personalized services and communicate separately with you. We also use aggregated information about the use of our services to evaluate our users' preferences, improve our programming, and facilitate third-party reporting of internet usage.

Like most websites, we use small bits of data called cookies stored on users' computers to simulate a continuous connection. Cookies let us "remember" information about your preferences and passwords and allow you to move within our Service without reintroducing yourself. The Vegetarian Channel and its advertisers may also use cookies to determine on an anonymous basis which advertisements users have seen and how users responded to them, but don't use such cookies to collect personally identifiable information unless you give us permission to do so. Similarly, The Vegetarian Channel and its advertisers may use small pieces of code called "web beacons" or "clear gifs" to collect anonymous advertising metrics and to deliver cookies related to such advertisements.

May I choose what information I disclose? While we need certain information to register you as a unique user and let you access personalized services, such as The Vegetarian Forum and the Add Url feature, other requested information is optional and may be given at your discretion.

May I choose what communications I receive? We occasionally send out an email newsletter to The Vegetarian Channel members to highlight features of the Service. You can elect not to receive communications from us or from other parties, either when you register or by noting your preference in response to communications from us.

What if I need to review or change the personal information I previously disclosed? We encourage The Vegetarian Channel members to update and edit their personal information and keep it current. You can easily correct or update your personal information at any time via our 'Modify Your Listing' or other location specifically identified in connection with a particular part of our Service.

What kind of security is used to protect my information? We store all user information in databases protected via a variety of access controls. This data is accessed only for the purposes specified in this privacy statement.

Who has access to my information? We do not share personally identifiable data with other companies (apart from those acting as our agents in providing our Service to you, who agree to use it only for that purpose), except as necessary to fulfill a transaction you have requested, or unless you otherwise give us permission to do so. The Vegetarian Channel may also share such information in response to legal process, such as a court order or subpoena.

What about other companies featured on The Vegetarian Channel? You may separately agree to provide your information to other companies who provide content for various parts of our Service, in order to use their services, order their products, or receive offers from them. If you agree to provide information to these companies, that information will be subject to their privacy policies.

Who can I contact if I have any questions regarding my privacy? Please contact us directly at privacy@thevegetarianchannel.com with any questions or comments.
