How we use collected information
Just Take A Bite collects and uses Users’ personal information for the following purposes:
- – To personalize user experience
We may use information in the aggregate to understand how our Users as a group use the services and resources provided on our Site.
- – To improve customer service
Your information helps us to more effectively respond to your customer service requests and support needs, especially if you order an eBook or have a question in a comment. The commenting software automatically emails you my answer when I reply. I do not, however, make any lists using the emails I see in comments.
- – To process transactions
We may use the information Users provide about themselves when placing an order to provide service to that order, including ebook updates, and also special offers that may be of interest to you. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to provide the service.
- – To administer a content, promotion, survey or other Site feature
To send Users information they agreed to receive about topics we think will be of interest to them. When you enter a giveaway, we will use the list of emails to send one email announcing the winner or directing entrants to the site to view the winner. It is highly unlikely that we would ever use that list for anything else, but possible.
- – To send periodic emails
The email address Users provide for order processing will be used to send them information and updates pertaining to their order. It may also be used to respond to their inquiries, and/or other requests or questions, and will be part of the customer list, which may be used to pass on items of interest to ebook owners. If User decides to opt-in to our mailing list, they will receive emails that may include daily blog posts, updates, related product or service information, etc. If at any time the User would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, we include detailed unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email.
- – To serve and track advertisements
Some sites allow us to share our email lists in order to find others like our list, or include or exclude you from seeing our advertisements. We never share information with anyone who would send you an email, only for targeting purposes within other platforms of which you may be a member.
How we protect your information
We adopt appropriate data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction of your personal information, username, password, transaction information and data stored on our Site.
Sharing your personal information
We do not sell, trade, or rent Users personal identification information to others. We may share generic aggregated demographic information not linked to any personal identification information regarding visitors and users with our business partners, trusted affiliates and advertisers for the purposes outlined above. (That means I might tell an advertiser how many people clicked on their links or entered their giveaway, but I’ll never share your email addresses or names with them, unless you are the winner of a giveaway.) We may use third party service providers to help us operate our business and the Site or administer activities on our behalf, such as sending out newsletters or surveys. We may share your information with these third parties for those limited purposes provided that you have given us your permission. Tracking pixels do track visits and are shared with third parties to measure ad effectiveness. (For example, if you click on a Facebook or Pinterest ad, the site will register that you arrived here and share that information with the social media site from whence you came.) We may also upload email lists to third party sites for the purpose of targeting advertising, as explained in the bullet above. For Pinterest visitor retargeting, you may opt out through your browser’s Do Not Track feature or your Pinterest personalization settings.
Just Take A Bite does not collect or even see any financial information, including bank account numbers, credit card information, or Paypal passwords. The eBook store send customers directly to Paypal where all monetary transactions take place. We can submit a refund through Paypal and see that you have paid, but that is the extent of our dealings with finances. We are not liable for any compromise of sensitive information that may occur while using external websites like Paypal and others.
