Privacy Policy

Last updated 9-26-2009

Your privacy is critically important to us. Here at LetsEat.at LLC ("LetsEat.at") we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don't ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can't stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don't share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don't store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
  • In our products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what's visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals:

It is LetsEat.at's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, LetsEat.at collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. LetsEat.at's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how LetsEat.at's visitors use its website and how they arrived there. From time to time, LetsEat.at may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

LetsEat.at also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. LetsEat.at does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to LetsEat.at's websites choose to interact with LetsEat.at in ways that require LetsEat.at to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that LetsEat.at gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at LetsEat.at to provide an account username/web address and email address. Those who engage in transactions with LetsEat.at are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, LetsEat.at collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with LetsEat.at. LetsEat.at does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Google Advertising

  • Google, as a third party vendor, uses cookies to serve ads on your site.
  • Google's use of the DART cookie enables it and its partners to serve ads to your users based on their visit to your sites and/or other sites on the Internet.
  • Users may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy.

We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our website. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, click here.

Aggregated Statistics

LetsEat.at may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, LetsEat.at may monitor the most popular restaurants in the LetsEat.at site. LetsEat.at may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, LetsEat.at does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

LetsEat.at discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on LetsEat.at's behalf or to provide services available at LetsEat.at's websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using LetsEat.at's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. LetsEat.at will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, LetsEat.at discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when LetsEat.at believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of LetsEat.at, third parties or the public at large. Data transmitted through your browser over the Internet can never be guaranteed to be 100% safe and secure. As a result of this, we cannot ensure or warrant the absolute security of any data you send to LetsEat.at and you do so at your own risk. Upon receiving your transmission of data, we make our best efforts to maintain the security of your information on our systems. If you are a registered user of an LetsEat.at website and have supplied your email address, LetsEat.at may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with LetsEat.at and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. LetsEat.at takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
