Supplementation of Information
In order for Out4dinner to properly fulfil its obligation to users it is necessary for us to supplement the information we receive with information from 3rd party sources.
Use and Viewing History
In order for Out4dinner to enhance its ability to tailor the site to a user's preference, we combine information about the browsing and booking habits of users with similar information from our partners to create a personalized user profile.
Enhancement of Marketing Profile
We may purchase third party marketing data and add it to our existing user database to better target our advertising and provide pertinent offers we think our users would be interested in. We use this information to enhance or overlay the "profile" of individual users. This aggregate marketing data is therefore tied to the users' personally identifiable information.
Correcting/Updating Personal Information
If a user's personally identifiable information changes (such as post code, phone, email or postal address), or if a user no longer desires our service, we provide a way to correct or update users' personally identifiable information. This can be done by the user logging in to his/her personal members area.
Notification of Changes
If, however, we are going to use users' personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection we will notify users via email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. However, if users have opted out of all communication with the site, then they will not be contacted, nor will their personal information be used in this new manner. In addition, if we make any material changes in our privacy practices that do not affect user information already stored in our database, we will post a prominent notice on our Web site notifying users of the change. In some cases where we post a notice we will also email users, who have opted to receive communications from us, notifying them of the changes in our privacy practices.
