Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us. We don't ask you for personal information unless we truly need it and we won't share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights. It is Dim Sum Guide’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating.

Website Visitors

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

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Dim Sum Guide’s websites choose to interact with Dim Sum Guide in ways that require Dim Sum Guide to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Dim Sum Guide gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who leave comments on Dim Sum Guide entries to provide a name and email address. In each case, Dim Sum Guide collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Dim Sum Guide. Dim Sum Guide 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

Dim Sum Guide may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, this data may be used to refine features available to Dim Sum Guide users. However, Dim Sum Guide does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Dim Sum Guide 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 Dim Sum Guide’s behalf or to provide services available at Dim Sum Guide’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 Dim Sum Guide’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Dim Sum Guide 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, Dim Sum Guide discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Dim Sum Guide believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Dim Sum Guide, third parties or the public at large. We primarily use our blog to communicate updates. If you send us a request (for example via a support 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. Dim Sum Guide takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
