Policies For Kids (Individuals Under 13 Years Of Age) And Teens
theplacelift.com is intended for the use and interest of retail grocery and foodservice operators and other commercial customers, rather than for the public at large or for children under the age of thirteen (13), or teens. However, we are conscious of the possibility such persons may visit our site. It is our policy to collect minimal information from guests under 13 years of age and teens, and only such information as may be required to ensure guests can effectively join in our activities. We do not condition participation in a particular activity on the collection of more information than is reasonably necessary. theplacelift.com does not provide any personally identifying information, regardless of its source, to any third party for any purpose whatsoever from our guests under 13 years of age.
Use of IP Addresses
An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web. Web servers automatically identify your computer by its IP address.
theplacelift.com collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to report aggregate information to our advertisers, and to audit the use of our site. When guests request pages from theplacelift.com site, our servers log the guests' IP addresses. We do not normally link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that a user's session will be logged but the user remains anonymous to us. We can and will use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our house rules or terms of service or to protect our service, site, customers or others.
By showing how and when guests use a site, cookies help us see which areas are popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates to the site are based on such data as total number of visitors and pages viewed. This information is most easily tracked with cookies. We use the information from cookies to provide services better tailored to our users’ needs.
You may occasionally get cookies from our advertisers if you click on an advertisement that takes you from theplacelift.com to the advertiser's website. theplacelift.com does not control these cookies. The use of advertising cookies sent by third-party servers is standard in the Internet industry.
The importance of security for all personally identifiable information associated with our guests is of utmost concern to us. We exercise great care in providing secure transmission of your information from your PC to our servers. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, theplacelift.com cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. When credit card information is transmitted we use industry standard, SSL (secure socket layer) encryption.
Remember to sign out of your theplacelift.com account and close your browser window when you have finished using the site. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if your computer is accessible to others or if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or internet café.
