3. How we use data.
Liveplate cares about your privacy. This is to explain what information we collect and how it is used. Liveplate lets you cook and share with friends, and make new friends who share your interests. You may participate in live video events, or cook-alongs.
Generally, registered users can see your basic profile information (user name, location, any recipes posted). Friends can see more details that you choose to share. You can change your profile anytime. You may accept, reject, or cancel friendships anytime.
Profile information collected by Liveplate is kept private.
If you log in with Facebook, Liveplate saves your name, age, gender, general location, email address and profile picture to verify your identity and to email notifications. You specifically set what notifications you want, if any.
If you create an account not connected with Facebook, Liveplate collects your real name, general location and verified email address.
We also collect optional profile data to make your experience more fun. For example, we might suggest a cake-decorating event to users interested in baking. This data includes but is not limited to: preferred language, favorite cuisines, cooking interests, or special health/lifestyle interests (gluten free, vegetarian, low carb, etc.).
Your profile information is not sold or shared outside Liveplate, except under a legal subpoena or search warrant deemed binding within the applicable jurisdiction.
Others can see your uploaded recipes in the Recipe Library.
Liveplate users may see any written recipes, photos, or videos you upload into the Recipe Library. That is the whole idea of sharing recipes in the library. They also may see comments you post on others’ recipes. Please use good judgment in posting any personally identifiable information such as your phone number or street address in the recipe library, comments, or blogs.
Public & private video events and cook-alongs; public events are recorded.
You can start a live cooking event and invite your friends (private) or make it public (open to any registered users). You can join a cook-along event and interact by text, video, or voice chat, or simply watch. You select who you want to watch on video or who you want to chat with.
Portions of public events MAY be recorded and viewed by others. By creating or participating in a public event, you agree to the use of your image and voice in Liveplate’s recipe library. For example, in a chef led cook-along, if you ask the chef a question, your question may appear (voice, video, or text) in a recorded video of the event. Liveplate does not record private events.
User IP addresses are recorded for security purposes for the rare event of any user who abuses the system. During any event, you can block or report another user for inappropriate behavior. Please notify admin@Liveplate.com of any concerns.
Other data kept is not personally identifiable.
Liveplate also tracks statistics that are not identified by person; this data is used to manage the application infrastructure to improve performance. For example, we may track browser type, connection speed, etc.
