The Information TasteDive Collects

Information You Provide: You may provide to TasteDive what is generally called "personally identifiable" information (such as your name, age, email address) if you use certain services or products from TasteDive or otherwise use the features and functionality of TasteDive.

"Automatically Collected" Information: When you access TasteDive or open one of our HTML emails, we may automatically record certain information from your system, such as the Internet Protocol address ("IP Address"), a unique user ID, your preferences (musicians, movies, TV shows, books, authors, games that you liked or disliked) as saved on your TasteDive profile, the content and pages that you access on TasteDive, and the dates and times that you visit TasteDive.

Facebook Information: when you connect with TasteDive using your Facebook account, TasteDive may retrieve additional taste-related information from your Facebook account, such as the bands or movies that you liked on Facebook. This is solely for the purpose of enhancing the quality of the recommendations and providing a more personalized experience (providing you with better recommendations).

"Cookies" Information: When you access TasteDive, we may send one or more cookies - small text files containing a string of alphanumeric characters - to your computer. We use cookies to personalize content, to provide social media features, to analyse our traffic and to personalize ads. We also share information about your use of our site with our social media, advertising and analytics partners. TasteDive may use both session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie disappears after you close your browser.
