Privacy Policy

We respect the privacy of the users of our website and service and are committed to protecting it. We have created this policy to demonstrate our commitment to you and to help you understand it.
Information About You
We may collect personal information that can identify you such as your name and e-mail address and other information that does not identify you. When you provide personal information through our website, the information may be sent to servers located in the United States and other countries around the world.
Information You Provide
We may collect and store any personal information you enter on our website or provide to us in some other manner. This includes identifying information, such as your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, and, if you transact business with us, financial information such as your payment method (valid credit card number, type, expiration date or other financial information). We also may request information about your interests and activities, your gender and age, your location (such as zip code and/or country), and other demographic information and we may ask you to complete a survey or send us a review.
Account User Profile Changes

(except for account closure) may be done at any time through the Website. From the top navigation of your Dashboard or mobile app, click on the "Profile" link and changing the desired information.

Account Deletion or Personal Information Removal

You may choose to remove all personal information at any time by submitting a request via the Contact Us form or email:

If you submit a deletion request, we will confirm the account name and email to be deleted, and we will notify you when your request is complete.

After you close your account, you will not be able to sign in to our Website, access any of your personal information, access your schedule history, and all future events that you have created or scheduled will be cancelled. You can open a new account at any time.

If you close your account, we may still retain certain information associated with your account for analytical purposes and record keeping integrity, as well as to prevent fraud, collect any fees owed, enforce our Terms of Service, take actions we deem necessary to protect the integrity of our Website or our users, or take other actions otherwise permitted by law. In addition, if certain information has already been provided to third parties as described in this Privacy Policy, retention of that information will be subject to those third parties’ policies.

Information About Other People

We also collect and store personal information about other people that you provide to us (people you make a schedule for). If you use our web site to send others (friends, relatives, colleagues, etc.) invitations through our system, we store your personal information, and the personal information of each such recipient they provide. We use the Invitees name & email address to allow them to sign up for your Schedule. We also send reminders to Cooks and display their names to other Invitees of the same Schedule. Other than as described in this Policy we will not intentionally sell, share or otherwise disclose personal contact information you submit to any third party. We may also collect users' contact information in order to provide certain services through our site, such as driving directions.


You may delete your name from the meal schedule by clicking the delete button next to your name on the schedule page. Once your name is removed, it will no longer be accessible to other Invitees (unless you are subsequently invited to another schedule, in which case your name will be accessible to guests of the new schedule).

How we protect your personal information

We take appropriate security measures (including physical, electronic and procedural measures) to help safeguard your personal information from unauthorized access and disclosure. For example, only authorized Food Tidings personel are permitted to access personal information, and they may do so only for permitted business functions. All information you submit to Food Tidings is kept on secure servers and databases at our host (GoDaddy).


We want you to feel confident using our website. However, no system can be completely secure. Therefore, although we take steps to secure your information, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information, searches, or other communications will always remain secure. Users should also take care with how they handle and disclose their personal information and should avoid sending personal information through insecure e-mail. Please refer to the Federal Trade Commission’s website at for information about how to protect yourself against identity theft.

E-mail Communications

We don't SPAM. If you want us to email you with news or updates on the service, you can subscribe to the Food Tidings Blog. Email addresses for people who sign up to bring meals are never listed on our web site(Only the organizers email address is embedded as a person to contact for a schedule). This page (and all pages where email addresses are entered) can not be accessed unless a user logs in. No SPAMbots, advertisers or "prying eyes" can access the email addresse of anyone with an account on our site. All the email addresses and passwords are stored in a secure database on our servers at GoDaddy. There is absolutely no sharing, accessing or displaying of anyone's private email to any advertisers or 3rd party whatsoever. We don't share your email addresses with anyone, period.

What About Advertisers?

The advertisers you see at the bottom of the screen are simply organizations affiliated with the Google Adsense program, and have no relationship or partnership with Food Tidings. We support the site through the displayed ads, and Google decides based on the content of our site which ads make sense to show. Google then gives us a commission of the money they receive from advertisers paying them to be a part of their program. There is never any sharing of email addresses or personal information with advertisers from Google Adsense.

Changes to This Policy

We reserve the right to modify all or some of this Privacy Policy at any time without notice. If we change our Privacy Policy, we will post a notice on our website & blog so our users are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. We will use information only in accordance with the Privacy Policy under which the information was collected unless we have received explicit authorization from the appropriate user(s) to do otherwise.
