1.  Acknowledgement and Acceptance of Terms
CookingShow.com, which is owned and operated by Sites To See Corporation, is committed to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Statement sets forth our current privacy practices with regard to the information we collect when you or your computer interact with our Site.  By accessing CookingShow.com, you acknowledge and fully understand the CookingShow.com Privacy Statement and freely consent to the information collection and use practices described in this Website Privacy Statement.

2.  Participating Merchant Policies
Related services and offerings with links from this website, including vendor sites, have their own privacy statements that can be viewed by clicking on the corresponding links within each respective website.  Online merchants and others who participate in CookingShow.com’s services are encouraged to participate in industry privacy initiatives and to take a responsible attitude towards consumer privacy.  However, since we do not have direct control over the policies or practices of participating merchants and other third parties, we are not responsible for the privacy practices or contents of those sites.  We recommend and encourage that you always review the privacy policies of merchants and other third parties before you provide any personal information or complete any transaction with such parties.

3.  Information We Collect and How We Use It
CookingShow.com collects certain information from and about its users three ways:  directly from our Web Server logs, the user, and with Cookies.

a.  Web Server Logs
When you visit our Website, we may track information to administer the site and analyze its usage.  Examples of information we may track include:
– Your Internet protocol address;
– The kind of browser or computer you use;
– Number of links you click within the site;
– State or country from which you accessed the site;
– Date and time of your visit;
– Name of your Internet service provider;
– Web page you linked to our site from;  
– Pages you viewed on the site.

b.  Use of Cookies
CookingShow.com may use cookies to personalize or enhance your user experience.  A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server.  Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer.  Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a Web Server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. 

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time.  For example, if you personalize a web page, or navigate within a site, a cookie helps the site to recall your specific information on subsequent visits.  Hence, this simplifies the process of delivering relevant content and eases site navigation by providing and saving your preferences and login information as well as providing personalized functionality. 

CookingShow.com reserves the right to share aggregated site statistics with partner companies, but does not allow other companies to place cookies on our website unless there is a temporary, overriding customer value (such as merging into CookingShow.com a site that relies on third-party cookies).

We also may use DART cookies for ad serving through Google’s DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests (“interest based targeting”). The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history. (For example, if you have been viewing sites about visiting Miami, you may see Miami hotel advertisements when viewing a non-related site, such as on a site about ice fishing.) DART uses “non-personally identifiable information”. It does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers. You can opt-out of this ad serving on all sites using this advertising by visiting http://www.doubleclick.com/privacy/dart_adserving.aspx.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies.  Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies.  If you reject cookies by changing your browser settings then be aware that this may disable some of the functionality on our Website.

c.  Personal Information
Visitors to our website can voluntarily choose to register to become a member of our Site.  When you register, we will request some personal information such as name, address, email address, city, state, zip code, date of birth, telephone number or facsimile number, and other relevant personal information.  If you are purchasing a service, we will request financial information.  Any financial information we collect is used only to bill you for the services you purchased.  If you purchase by credit card, this information may be forwarded to your credit card provider.  For other types of registrations, we will ask for the relevant information.  We also collect the email addresses of those who communicate with us via email, and profile information volunteered by the user.  You may also be asked to disclose personal information to us so that we can provide assistance and information to you.  For example, such data may be warranted in order to provide online technical support and troubleshooting.

We will not disclose personally identifiable information we collect from you to third parties without your permission except to the extent necessary including:
– To fulfill your service requests for services;
– To protect ourselves from liability;
– To respond to legal process or comply with law; or
– In connection with a merger, acquisition, or liquidation of the company.

4.  Use of Web Beacons or Gif Files
CookingShow.com Web pages may contain electronic images known as Web beacons – sometimes also called single-pixel gifs – that allow CookingShow.com to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services.  CookingShow.com may include Web beacons in promotional e-mail messages or newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon.

Some of these Web beacons may be placed by third party service providers to help determine the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns or email communications.  These Web beacons may be used by these service providers to place a persistent cookie on your computer.  This allows the service provider to recognize your computer each time you visit certain pages or emails and compile anonymous information in relation to those page views, which in turn enables us and our service providers to learn which advertisements and emails bring you to our website and how you use the site.  CookingShow.com prohibits Web beacons from being used to collect or access your personal information.

5.  Accessing Web Account Information
We will provide you with the means to ensure that personally identifiable information in your web account file is correct and current.  You may review this information by sending us a message.  We will attempt to verify the identity of the person requesting your information before we provide said information.

6.  Changes to this Statement
CookingShow.com has the discretion to occasionally update this privacy statement.  When we do, we will also revise the “updated” date at the top of this Privacy page.  We encourage you to periodically review this privacy statement to stay informed about how we are helping to protect the personal information we collect.  Your continued use of the service constitutes your agreement to this privacy statement and any updates.

7.  Contacting Us
If you have questions regarding our Privacy Statement, its implementation, failure to adhere to this Privacy Statement and/or our general practices, please contact us.

CookingShow.com will use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly respond and resolve any problem or question.
