COLLECTION OF INFORMATION

Traffic Data. Startup Food Biz may collect personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, physical address or telephone number. Startup Food Biz may also collect anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your Postal Code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites.

Information about your computer hardware and software also may be automatically collected by Startup Food Biz. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used by Startup Food Biz for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Services.

Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose Personally Identifiable Information through the Services, this information may be collected and used by others. Startup Food Biz encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from our website so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information. Startup Food Biz is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the websites we operate.

Startup Food Biz and its partners may use the standard cookie feature of major browser applications and third-party providers, including Google Analytics features (Remarketing, Google Display Network Impression Reporting, the DoubleClick Campaign Manager Integration and Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting), or employ internally developed cookies and tracking codes, that allow Startup Food Biz to store a small piece of data on a visitor's computer, or any other device a visitor uses to access Services, about his or her visit to the website or use of Services. Startup Food Biz does not capture Personally Identifiable Information in cookies or use cookies to mine Personally Identifiable Information.

Personal Information. Startup Food Biz requires each customer to provide us with personal information (collectively "Personally Identifiable Information") to access and use Startup Food Biz products and services. Personally Identifiable Information is captured when a visitor accesses Services, or speaks on the phone with a Startup Food Biz employee and willingly discloses that information. This disclosure may occur when a visitor registers with a Service, engages in transactions, contacts customer service, or participates in contests, promotions, surveys, forums, content submissions, requests for suggestions, or other aspects of services offered by Startup Food Biz.

Personally Identifiable Information includes but is not limited to: (i) "Contact Data" (such as your name, address, city, state, zip code, phone number, and email address); (ii) "Financial Data" (such as your credit card number, expiration date, and verification code or bank account information); (iii) "Demographic Data" (such as your zip code and sex); and (iv) other "Business Data" (such as the name your business entity, a brief description of the purpose of your business, the name and address of the business entity's registered agent, the name and address of the directors and officers of your corporation, or members or managers for your LLC, ownership interests in your business entity, trade secrets, inventions, and idea submissions and other sensitive information necessary to generate legal documents).

We may collect the information of 3rd party individuals as necessary, such as to ask our customers to indicate record shareholders of a company or register authorized contacts to access their Startup Food Biz account. Startup Food Biz uses this information for the sole purpose of administering its services for our customers, and does not use such information for any other reason.

If you believe that one of your contacts has provided us with your personal information and you would like to request that it be removed from our database, please contact us at [email protected]

Certain personal information becomes public record when documents are filed with the federal or state government, or with a court. For example, a corporation's name, business address and registered agent name become public information when its articles of incorporation are filed. A Secretary of State may publish this information to its website or provide this information to third parties for a fee. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office publishes the names and addresses of trademark registrants. In some states, fictitious business names, including the name and address of the business owner, must be published in a newspaper. The Startup Food Biz Privacy Policy does not cover these or similar third-party actions.

Testimonials and Reviews. We display personal testimonials of satisfied customers received through email surveys. We ask for your specific consent as part of the survey. If you wish to update or delete your testimonial, you can contact us at [email protected] We also display customer reviews.

Information about our customers, including personal information, may be disclosed as part of any merger, acquisition, debt financing, sale of company assets, as well as in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership in which personal information could be transferred to third parties as one of Startup Food Biz's business assets.
