The Policy applies to all current and prospective membership of Dumpling Connection, as well as to users of our online properties.
Collection of Personal Information
Dumpling Connection collects personal information from users where such information is required for the provision of a particular product or service. Our website may collect personal information through surveys, questionnaires, and other means. In addition to a name, address (postal and/or e-mail) and transaction information, we may collect demographic information (i.e., age, gender, occupation, and education) and opinions of members, or potential members.
Dumpling Connection and related names, logos and images, as well as some of the characters, logos or other images incorporated by us into the Membership and/or the Content, are protected as registered or unregistered trademarks or trade names owned by or licensed to Dumpling Connection.
Modes of Collection
Dumpling Connection collects personal information about users through various applications and surveys and questionnaires, face-to-face interactions, and our online properties.
Disclosure of Personal Information
The information you provide will not be sold, rented or given to any third-parties not controlled by or controlling Dumpling Connection, subject to the requirement of law. It will be used for the sole purpose of providing users with our products and services, manage our business, and comply with regulatory and industry requirements. More specifically, we use personal information to create and maintain user memberships, communicate with our users, supply users with our products and services, and provide them with information about existing or new products and services that we believe would be of value to them. We may also use information about user interests and preferences, as well as feedback we receive from surveys, to improve our products and customer service. Dumpling Connection makes all reasonable efforts to ensure that information is used responsibly, and only for its intended purposes.
We will request your consent to the use and disclosure of your personal information for specific types of transactions on the application or other forms used in connection with those transactions. Where it is reasonable to imply your consent to the use and disclosure of your personal information in accordance with this Policy (e.g., in connection with a mailing for the renewal of membership), we may do so. Where it is reasonable, we may also imply your consent to the use and disclosure of your personal information in accordance with this Policy from continuing requests for our products and services now that you are knowledgeable about our personal information practices. We will obtain your consent before using or disclosing your personal information for any purpose not identified in this Policy.
Dumpling Connection discloses personal information where we are required to do so by law and may disclose personal information to our purchaser or new corporate entity in the event of a sale, merger, or substantial restructuring of our business.
Limiting the Use and Disclosure of Personal Information
Subject to contractual and other legal obligations, you are entitled to withdraw your consent to our use and disclosure of your personal information. We are legally bound to inform you that withdrawing your consent may preclude us from providing you with certain products or services.
The use of our site may provide us with limited access to your device to provide us with information related to your use of the site, including content viewed, amount of time viewed, and general information regarding your device (such as a unique device identifier, your operating system and your interaction with the site). This information, together with any other information you provide to us through your registration for, and membership to, the Site and/or your use of any of its features, will, among other things, enable us to:
(a) enforce this Policy
(b) manage rights associated with the Content,
(c) generate usage and performance data concerning your use of the Content and the Site,
(d) deliver interest-based advertising to you,
(e) collect information for security purposes,
(f) help you use the Site more effectively, and
(g) otherwise, help us to enhance and improve the Content and the Site.
Similar to other commercial websites, our websites utilize a standard technology called “cookies” and web server logs to collect information about how our websites are used. Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our websites, and the websites visited just before and just after our websites. This information is collected on an aggregate basis. None of this information is associated with you as an individual. If you choose to correspond with us via e-mail, we may retain the content of your e-mail messages together with your e-mail address and our responses. We provide the same protections for these electronic communications that we employ in the maintenance of non-electronic information, such as that received by mail and telephone.
Information obtained through our websites is used for internal review, to improve the content of our webpages, and to customize the content and/or layout of our pages for each individual visitor; it is not shared with other organizations for commercial purposes.
By default, most browsers will automatically accept cookies. However, you can disable cookies completely, or be prompted prior to a cookie being loaded, by adjusting your browser’s settings. Please note that disabling cookies may impair the functionality of the Service and/or the website, either fully or in part, and may prevent you from using certain Service or website features, services or applications. Consult each individual browser’s “help” feature for more information.
Accuracy of Personal Information
Dumpling Connection will try to ensure that information about you is accurate, complete, and up-to-date. We may update the personal information in our records from time-to-time, where current information is required for the provision of a particular product or service. Please inform us of any change of name, address, or other information. Should you have questions about the accuracy of factual information we have collected about you, you will have access to that information to verify and update it.
