UPC Food Search is committed to ensuring that any personal information you provide to us is kept private and secure. You can visit and use UPC Food Search without giving us any personal data. We collect the e-mail addresses only for the purpose of site registrations. On occasion, we do run reports to track the amount of traffic to our web site, but this information is statistical only and can not be traced back to any one individual.
As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files include your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as AT&T or Comcast Cable), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer, Safari, Chrome, or Firefox), the time you visited our site and which pages you visited throughout our site. We collect this information to improve the content of our Web page, used to customize the content and/or layout of our page for each individual visitor, used to notify consumers about updates to our Web site and is in no way shared with other organizations for commercial purposes.
See our Cookie Notice
We also use third party advertisements on UPC Food Search.com to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program and the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program) information including your IP address, your ISP , the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).
UPC Food Search is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees from qualifying purchases.
UPC Food Search has many links to web sites that are not affiliated with us, and we cannot take responsibility for any content or policies of third-party web sites.
If you have any questions about advertising, please feel free to Contact Us.
If you register or log into your account through a third-party social media service, we will have access to some of your third-party account information from that service, such as your name and other information in that account, and used for purposes such as improving your Meetup recommendations. We may also have access to third-party account information if you use the Platform feature to share a link. We use OneAll's user integration platform for social media logins. Read OneAll's GDPR/Data Processing Agreement
Once you have removed your account there is no going back. This will remove all of your personal data and any/all social media account information will be removed as well.
No credit card information is ever stored on our servers. We use Stripe.com, one of the most secure and reputable payment processors available. All card numbers are encrypted on disk with AES-256 and decryption keys are stored on separate machines. None of Stripe's internal servers and daemons are able to obtain plain text card numbers; instead, they can just request that cards be sent to a service provider on a static whitelist.
Stripe's infrastructure for storing, decrypting, and transmitting card numbers runs in separate hosting infrastructure and doesn't share any credentials with Stripe's primary services (API, website, etc.) For more information, you can visit Stripe's security policy right here!
In other words, your credit card details are safe!
This privacy notice is subject to change. If we make any substantive changes in the way that we use the information collected through the Site or the Service, we will post a clear and conspicuous notice of those changes on the Site and in this privacy notice.
