CalorieConnect.com respects the privacy of its Internet site users and will protect that privacy as vigorously as possible.
CalorieConnect.com does not collect information that personally identifies individuals except when individuals provide such specific information on a voluntary basis. During the registration process we do not ask for your name, e-mail address or for any information that could reveal your personal identity.
There may be occasions where specific personal information is requested before an individual can enter certain sections of a CalorieConnect.com site. For example, in the future registration will be needed to participate in any CalorieConnect.com online forum. This kind of registration helps us to ensure that content standards on these sections of the site are rigorously upheld. Information requested in order for members to contribute directly to the public access food list would be a similar example.
In all such cases, CalorieConnect.com will collect only information that is voluntarily provided by the user and undertakes that such information will be kept strictly confidential. Individual information provided to CalorieConnect.com to gain access to any CalorieConnect.com site will not be sold or made available to a third party. CalorieConnect.com does reserve the right, however, to perform statistical analyses of user behaviour and characteristics, in order to measure interest in and use of the various sections of its sites so as to improve design and navigation and to gather marketing information. Only aggregated data from these analyses, not individual data, will be used for this purpose.
If you do not want a cookie placed on your computer by the CalorieConnect.com, you may disable cookies altogether by modifying the Preferences section of your Netscape or Internet Explorer browser (under Edit/Preferences/Advanced). Note that it is possible that some aspects of CalorieConnect.com sites may be unavailable to you if you choose this option.
