This Simply Fresh Food with Chef Renée (Simply Chef Renée) Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) describes how Simply Chef Renée and its service providers (collectively, “we”, “us”, or “our”) collect and use information about you in connection with, any subpages of that webpage, and any other website operated by Simply Chef Renée (collectively, the “Site”). By visiting or using the Site directly or through another website, you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your Personal Information and Browsing Information described in this Privacy Policy.

What We Mean–Definitions

This Privacy Policy uses certain capitalized terms that we intend to have particular meanings. Sometimes, those terms are defined when they are first used. In addition, and for ease of reference, the following terms are defined in this section:

  • Your Information or Personally Sensitive Information: by “Personal Information”, we generally mean information that directly identifies you, or that can directly identify you, such as your name, shipping and/or billing address, e-mail address, phone number, and credit card information.
  • Browsing Information: by “Browsing Information”, we generally mean information about your use of the Site, or your computer’s (or other access device, such as a smartphone) interaction with the Site. Browsing Information also includes all of the information described in the “Information Collected Automatically—Browsing Information” section below. In general, Simply Chef Renée does not use Browsing Information to identify you, but such information may be paired with Personal Information, or with other information that together, could be used to identify you. Additionally, third parties, such as analytics companies and advertising service providers may access, collect, store, and use Browsing Information, and they may use it to identify you and/or in connection with Personal Information.
  • Disclose: by “Disclose” (or variations thereof, such as Disclosures) we collectively mean transfer, share, disclose, provide access to, use, combine, verify, store, sell, and rent.

How We Use Personal Information and Browsing Information

We and our business associates may use Personal Information and Browsing Information for a variety of purposes, including the following:

  • To help provide you with a smooth, efficient learning and shopping experience that is tailored to you. For example, to:
  • help you quickly find information, products, and services;
  • make the Site easier for you to use by eliminating the need for you to repeatedly enter the same information;
  • provide you with information about your reviews you write, questions you answer, products you select or people who are following your selections (if you choose to make selections and allow followers)
  • help create content that is customized to your particular preferences or interests; and make third party offers of products and/or services more relevant to you.
  • To announce and disclose the names, and cities and states, of winners of contests, sweepstakes, and promotions.
  • To fulfill and ship your order, to process your payments, and to communicate with you about your order and to provide customer service.
  • To assist in marketing efforts, including, for example, by tailoring and serving advertisements, and by tracking the effectiveness of marketing efforts.
  • To operate the Site and to improve Site content, layout and design, and vendor selection.
  • To monitor the usage and performance of the Site and to conduct system administration and system troubleshooting.
  • To comply with legal requirements and process (for example, in response to subpoenas, court orders, and law enforcement or governmental requests or investigations), to protect our legal rights or the rights of others (for example, by working to reduce the risk of fraud or Site misuse); and to enforce our Terms of Use or other policies or agreement.
  • In connection with an unusual business transaction, such as the
  • bankruptcy or liquidation of, sale of, purchase of, or merger with our business or another business. Such a transaction may involve the disclosure of Personal Information and Browsing Information to prospective or actual purchasers or third parties. In general, we strive to limit such disclosures to circumstances where Personal Information and Browsing Information will be treated in accordance with this Privacy Policy. In the event that we or all of our assets are acquired in such a transaction, Personal Information and Browsing Information may be one of the transferred assets.

In addition to the uses described above, we also use Personal Information and Browsing Information to help us determine which areas of our Site are most popular so we can enhance the experience of Site visitors. We may aggregate certain Browsing Information or Personal Information so that it does not relate to any specific Site visitor (“aggregate information”) in order to detect, analyze, and describe patterns of Site usage. Browsing Information and aggregate information can provide an overview of our Site users’ characteristics, demographics, and collective viewing, search and shopping habits. We use such information, and share it with our vendors, business partners (including advertising partners) and other third parties for purposes such as: tailoring Site and email content and services for individual users and recipients; conducting targeted advertising; offering promotions and discounts; and to offer third party products and services.

It is not possible to describe each and every Disclosure of Personal Information and Browsing Information that we may engage in. Accordingly, the description above is only a list of examples, and we reserve the right to Disclose Personal Information and Browsing Information for any other lawful purpose.

The Information We Collect

Information We Affirmatively Collect From You—Personal Information

In general, when we collect Personal Information about you on the Site, you are asked to affirmatively provide the information or to take some action—such as in registering an account, or placing an order—on or through the Site. Other information you affirmatively provide, such as about your preferences (e.g., specific products or brands you like), and demographic information (e.g., gender, age, or income range) is generally maintained along with Personal Information. You can choose not to provide any information that is affirmatively requested of you, however, this may limit your ability to use the Site. For example, you must provide certain information about you in order to access all of the Site’s features, to obtain promotional or email offers, to create wish lists, to participate in special or loyalty programs (including gift certificates) through the Site, to write and share reviews, to enter contests or sweepstakes, or to place an order on the Site.

Depending on the purpose, we may ask you to provide different categories of Personal Information. For example, if you place an order or enroll in a class, we may ask you to provide information including your name, phone number, email address, shipping and billing addresses, zip code and credit card information.

User-generated content on our Site (such as reviews, ratings and wish lists created by users) may include Personal Information. We may Disclose any Personal Information submitted with or included in the user-generated content provided to the Site.

Information Collected Automatically—Browsing Information

When you visit our Site, we automatically collect what we refer to as Browsing Information about you.

Browsing Information includes certain information that is automatically sent by, or collected from, your computer, web browser, and/or other device used to access the Site. This may include information such as your computer’s IP address, unique device identifier associated with the device you use to access the Site, the URL of the webpage you visited before coming to the Site and when exiting the Site, the location from which you (or your computer or access device) accesses the Site, and information about your computer or browser type and settings (such as your browser version, language settings). We also may collect or access information associated with cookies or other Tracking Technologies, as further described in our “Cookies and Tracking Technologies Used on the Site” section below.

Browsing Information also includes certain information about your use of the Site, such as the pages and services you click on or access on the Site, the data you or your computer or access device transfers to or receives from the Site, session information (such as page response times), click-stream data and other information about the unique way in which you use the Site. This information can allow us to record and understand the precise way in which you interact with the Site in any particular visit, including each of the webpages you visit, and the manner in which you engage with each webpage (e.g., where you move your cursor, what you scroll through, what searches you run and products you view, etc.). Browsing Information also includes preference data, such as search and purchase information and other preference-related information that you submit to the Site (such as the styles and brands you prefer, what activities you enjoy and other lifestyle information).

Cookies and Tracking Technologies Used on the Site

We and our business associates use cookies and certain other tracking technologies on the Site to collect, process, and store Personal Information and Browsing Information. This section describes these cookies and tracking technologies in general terms.

The Site also may use other technologies including but not limited to web beacons and locally shared objects, to collect, process, and store Personal Information and Browsing Information (all, along with cookies, are collectively referred to as “Tracking Technologies”), and for any of the purposes that cookies are used for. Web beacons—sometimes called single-pixel gifs or action tags—assist in delivering cookies and allow us to collect Browsing Information about Site users. Web beacons may also be included in emails in order to determine whether the emails have been opened and acted upon. Locally shared objects—sometimes called Flash cookies—collect and hold more data than cookies, and are stored differently on your computer. Locally shared objects may not be deleted, or prevented, through the use of browser settings or controls. For more information about locally shared objects, including instructions on how to control or delete them, review information provided by Adobe in connection with Flash technology you use, such as

The Tracking Technologies used on the Site may be used by Simply Chef Renée, or by any of our service providers or business affiliates, including third party advertising companies, for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy (including the collection and use of Browsing Information and Personal Information). In addition, our service providers, business affiliates, and advertising companies may use Tracking Technologies to measure advertising effectiveness (such as which web pages are visited or what products are purchased and in what amount), to understand shopping patterns, to determine whether you have seen a particular ad before so as to avoid duplication, and for their own business purposes that are not described in this Privacy Policy.

Email Communications That We Send; Consent to Electronic Notice of Breaches

We may send you, or you may elect to sign up to receive, emails from us. To help us understand whether we are providing information of interest to you, we may include software code or other Tracking Technologies in our emails to monitor whether you opened a particular email, whether you have clicked on the images and/or links in the email, the date and time the message was opened, and whether your computer is capable of receiving HTML-based email.

We endeavor to allow you to unsubscribe at any time from our email programs by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any email message. We reserve the right to send you service announcements or similar administrative messages (for example, if we need to temporarily suspend the Site for maintenance), without offering you the opportunity to opt out of receiving them. In addition, because we must communicate with you about orders that you have placed, you cannot opt out of receiving emails relating to your orders.

In the event that we or our Site suffers a data security breach that requires us to provide you with notice, such as under applicable law, you consent to allow us to provide you with such notice by sending an e-mail to the primary e-mail address that is associated with your account.

Security and Passwords

Simply Chef Renée takes what it believes to be commercially reasonable physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect Personal Information.

You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account, and we will attribute activities that occur using your account information (e.g., through the use of your password) to you. If you suspect that your password has been compromised, change it immediately, or contact us at
