Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

Sizzleworks Cooking School (“Sizzleworks“) operates thesizzleworks.com. It is Sizzleworks’ policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Sizzleworks 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. Sizzleworks’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Sizzleworks’ visitors use its website. From time to time, Sizzleworks may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Sizzleworks also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on thesizzleworks.com blogs/sites. Sizzleworks only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Sizzleworks’ websites choose to interact with Sizzleworks in ways that require Sizzleworks to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Sizzleworks gathers depends on the nature of the interaction.

For example, those who engage in transactions with Sizzleworks are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. Some visitors may want to receive the website’s newsletter.

In each case, Sizzleworks collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Sizzleworks. Sizzleworks 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.

Aggregated Statistics

Sizzleworks may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Sizzleworks may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Sizzleworks does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Sizzleworks 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 Sizzleworks’ behalf or to provide services available at Sizzleworks’ 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 Sizzleworks’ websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Sizzleworks 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, Sizzleworks discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Sizzleworks believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Sizzleworks, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Sizzleworks website and have supplied your email address, Sizzleworks 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 Sizzleworks and our products. If you send us a request (for example via 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. Sizzleworks takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
