PortlandFoodandDrink.com (“PFD“) operates portlandfoodanddrink.com and may operate other websites. It is PortlandFoodandDrink’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites. This policy takes effect on May 23rd, 2018.
Data Used: If Akismet is enabled on the site, the contact form submission data — IP address, user agent, name, email address, website, and message — is submitted to the Akismet service (also owned by Automattic) for the sole purpose of spam checking. The actual submission data is stored in the database of the site on which it was submitted and is emailed directly to the owner of the form (i.e. the site author who published the page on which the contact form resides). This email will include the submitter’s IP address, timestamp, name, email address, website, and message.
Data Synced (?): Post and post metadata associated with a user’s contact form submission. If Akismet is enabled on the site, the IP address and user agent originally submitted with the comment are synced, as well, as they are stored in post meta.
Google Analytics is a web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic. Google uses the data collected to track and monitor the use of PFD. This data is shared with other Google services. Google may use the collected data to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
PFD 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 PFD’s behalf or to provide services available at PFD’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 PFD’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. PFD 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, PFD discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when PFD believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of PFD, third parties or the public at large. PFD takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If PFD, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that PFD goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur and that any acquirer of PFD may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
We no longer use social media share/like buttons such as those provided by Facebook or Twitter. There are enough trackers on the web without our adding to it.
