Your privacy is important to us. At Local Lingo, we have a few basic principles:
We are thoughtful about the personal information we ask you to provide and the personal information that we collect about you through the operation of our website.
We aim for full transparency on how we gather, use, and share your personal information.
Who We Are and What This Policy Covers
Below we explain how we collect, use, and share information about you, along with the choices that you have with respect to that information.
Information We Collect
We only collect information about you if we have a reason to do so–for example, to allow use of our Website, to communicate with you, or to make our Website better.
We collect information in three ways: if and when you provide information to us, automatically through operating our Website, and from outside sources. Let’s go over the information that we collect.
Information You Provide to Us
It’s probably no surprise that we collect information that you provide to us. The amount and type of information depends on the context and how we use the information. Here are some examples:
Basic Account Information: We ask for basic information from you in order to set up your account. For example, we require individuals who sign up for an account on www.gluten-free-prague.com to provide a username and email address–and that’s it. You may provide us with more information–like your name–but we don’t require that information to create your account.
Public Profile Information: If you have an account with us, we collect the information that you provide for your public profile. For example, if you have a www.gluten-free-prague.com account, your username is part of that public profile, along with any other information you put into your public profile. Your public profile is just that–public–so please keep that in mind when deciding what information you would like to include.
Communications with Us: You may also provide us information when you communicate with us, or add a listing to our directory.
Information We Collect Automatically
We also collect some information automatically:
Log Information: Like most online service providers, we collect information that web browsers, mobile devices, and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, IP address, unique device identifiers, language preference, referring site, the date and time of access, operating system, and mobile network information. We collect log information when you use our Website.
Usage Information: We collect information about your usage of our Website. For example, we collect information about what happens when you use our Website (e.g., page views, website searches and button clicks) along with information about your device (e.g., mobile screen size, name of cellular network, and mobile device manufacturer). We use this information to, for example, provide our Website to you, as well as get insights on how people use our Website, so we can make our Website better.
Location Information: We may determine the approximate location of your device from your IP address. We collect and use this information to, for example, calculate how many people visit our Website from certain geographic regions.
How We Use Information
We use information about you as mentioned above and as follows:
To provide our Website–for example, to set up and maintain your account
To monitor and analyze trends and better understand how users interact with our Website, which helps us improve our Website and make it easier to use;
To monitor and protect the security of our Website and fight spam
How We Share Information
We do not sell our users’ private personal information.
Third Party Vendors: We may share information about you with third party vendors who need to know information about you in order to provide their services to us. This group includes those that help us understand and enhance our Website (like analytics providers).
As Required by Law: We may disclose information about you in response to a subpoena, court order, or other governmental request.
Aggregated and De-Identified Information: We may share information that has been aggregated or reasonably de-identified, so that the information could not reasonably be used to identify you. For instance, we may publish aggregate statistics about the use of our Website.
We share information about you in the limited circumstances spelled out below and with appropriate safeguards on your privacy:
Information Shared Publicly
Information that you choose to make public is–you guessed it–disclosed publicly. That means, of course, that information like your public profile, posts, other content that you make public on your website, and your “likes” and comments on other websites that use our Services, are all available to others–and we hope you get a lot of views! We provide a “Firehose” stream of public data (like posts and comments) from sites that use our Services to provide that data to Firehose subscribers, who may view and analyze the content, but do not have rights to re-publish it, publicly. Public information may also be indexed by search engines or used by third parties. Please keep all of this in mind when deciding what you would like to share.
While no online service is 100% secure, we work very hard to protect information about you against unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction, and take reasonable measures to do so.
You have several choices available when it comes to information about you:
Limit the Information that You Provide: If you have an account with us, you can choose not to provide the optional account information and profile information.
Set Your Browser to Reject Cookies: You can usually choose to set your browser to remove or reject browser cookies before using www.gluten-free-prague.com, with the drawback that certain features of some websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.
