We recognize that many consumers who visit our web site are concerned about any information they provide us online, and how we maintain and use this information.

Information We Collect and How We Use It
We only collect personally identifiable information on a voluntary basis. We do not require that you provide this information to gain access to our sites, and we do not require you to disclose more information than is reasonably needed to participate in activities on our sites. We collect personally identifiable information primarily to e-mail updates and news, for entry into promotions and to notify subsequent winners, to send out brochures, etc. via regular mail to subscribers, and to respond to your questions or suggestions.
We do not transfer or disclose any information we gather at our web sites to anyone outside of LiDestri Food and Drink without your prior consent, except:
- In cases where we believe in good faith that we have a legal obligation to disclose such information, and
- to certain suppliers that assist LiDestri Food and Drink in maintaining and managing the activities on its web sites, including, for example, fulfillment of prizes awarded in connection with an online game. Please be assured that these suppliers are legally obligated to maintain the confidentiality of this information and do not acquire any rights to use your information for their own benefit. We may share non-identifiable aggregate information about our users (for example, the % of male and female visitors to our sites) with advertisers, business partners, sponsors, and other third parties in an effort to customize or enhance the content and advertising on our sites for our users.
We do reserve the right, in connection with the potential sale or transfer of the interests of LiDestri Food and Drink and its subsidiaries and affiliates, to sell or transfer your information (including but not limited to your address, name, age, gender, zip code, state, and country of residency and other information that you provide through other communications) to a third party entity that:
- Concentrates its business in a similar practice or service,
- Agrees to be LiDestri Food and Drink’ successor in interest with regard to the maintenance and protection of the information collected, and
You should be aware that when you visit our web site, we collect certain information that does not identify you personally, but provides us with "usage data". We use this information to create summary statistics and to determine the level of interest in information available on our site. Such non-identifying information includes:
- Domain name (i.e. aol.com if you are using America Online);
- Date and time our site was accessed;
- City and state where your domain name is registered;
- Any keywords you may have used in a search engine to find us;
- The browser used to find us;
- The Internet address of the web site from which you linked directly to our site.
Our sites frequently include notices for contests and sweepstakes that we are conducting. For those contests and sweepstakes where we permit you to enter electronically, we will use the information that you provide us only for the purposes of conducting the promotion (e.g., to contact you if you are a winner). We do not share this information with anyone outside of LiDestri Food and Drink except for suppliers who assist us in conducting the promotion and who are legally obligated to maintain the confidentiality of any information we provide them.
Like most commercial web sites, some areas of our web site may also use what is known as "cookie" technology. A "cookie" is a non-executable element of data that a web site can send to your browser when you link to that site. By assigning a unique data element to each visitor, the web site is then able to recognize repeat users, track usage patterns and better serve you when you return to that site. The "cookie" does not extract personal information about you. Most browsers provide a simple procedure that will enable you to control whether you want to receive cookies by notifying you when a web site is about to deposit a cookie.
Security of Information Provided
We employ appropriate security measures to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. For certain areas of the site, we employ Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input as an additional security measure. However, as no online data transmission can be guaranteed to be totally secure, we (like all web sites) cannot warrant or guarantee 100% security of any information you transmit to us at our web sites.
