Privacy Policy

Savvy Eats is committed to maintaining the privacy and protection of your personal information. This privacy policy tells you about the information we collect on our website and how we use that information. By using the Savvy Eats website, you are consenting to the information collection and use practices described in this privacy policy, which may be modified from time to time by us.

Information We Collect

The information we gather falls into two categories: (1) information you supply when you register to receive emails or comment on the website, and (2) tracking information collected as you navigate through our site.

Personally Identifying Information

In operating the Site, Savvy Eats may include registration, comment forms, online surveys, and other online forms that ask users to provide their names, e-mail addresses, and other contact information.

Log Files

We use log files like many other websites. The information in the log files include:

  • Internet Protocol addresses (IP)
  • Types of browser
  • Internet Service Provider (ISP)
  • Date and time stamp
  • Referring and exit pages
  • Number of clicks 

We use this information to analyze trends, administer the site, track users’ movements around the site and gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.  

This information is never provided to the third parties, except as otherwise stated in this Privacy Policy, and is logged only for a temporary period of time. Other than the IP address, this information is not linked to anything that is personally identifiable.  IP address information is linked to personal information and may be used in an effort to block a “banned” user from accessing the Site.

From time to time, we may use the standard “cookies” feature of major browser applications that allows us to store a small piece of data on your computer about your visit to our Web site. We use cookies to store information about visitor preferences and to record user-specific information on visits and pages the user views so as to provide a custom experience. We do not set any personally identifiable information in cookies, nor do we employ any data capture mechanisms on our website other than cookies.

Some of our third-party advertisers also use cookies to track ad impressions. In regard to third-party advertisers, Savvy Eats has no access to or control over these cookies.
