Protecting Your Information

We respect and are committed to protecting your privacy. Grocery Business adheres to the highest standards in assuring our customers’ privacy and we promise that we will take steps to use your personal information only in ways that are compatible with this Policy. The following policies are only in effect for the web pages, newsletters, discussion lists and opt-in announcement lists owned and operated by Grocery Business Media.

Registration and Contact Information

Grocery Business Media offers access to some services that require registration. We may use your registration contact information to send notification to you of Grocery Business Media products and services by e-mail and/or postal mail. We also may share that information with our clients. Our clients may send you promotional material that is related to the topic or the service for which you registered.

Every computer connected to the Internet is given a set of numbers that serve as that computer's "Internet Protocol" IP address. When a visitor browses a page from our web site, our web servers automatically recognize that visitor's IP address. The IP address does not reveal personal information about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed our site. We use this information to examine our traffic in aggregate, and to investigate misuse of the website, its users, or to cooperate with law enforcement.

We may also use your IP address internally and share it with third parties but only to those we feel will benefit you as a valued reader.

We may also request your e-mail address or mailing address for the purposes of conducting a survey or to provide additional services (for example, subscriptions to e-mail newsletters, announcement lists or information about conferences and trade shows). Whenever we request the identity of a visitor, we will clearly indicate the purpose of the inquiry before the information is requested.

We maintain a strict "No-Spam" policy that means that we do not sell, rent, or otherwise give your e-mail address to a third-party, without your consent or as permitted by this Privacy Policy.

Except as stated above, we will not send you e-mail that you have not agreed to receive. If you choose to supply your postal address in an online form, you may receive postal mailings from other third party companies.


During user interaction with Grocery Business Media’s Websites, Grocery Business Media may use a browser feature called a 'cookie' to collect information anonymously concerning website user patterns. A cookie is a small text file containing a unique identification number that identifies your browser - but not you - to Grocery Business Media’s computers each time you visit certain website pages. This helps Grocery Business Media to improve the online experience of users.

Even though Grocery Business Media may assign your computer a cookie, Grocery Business Media will not combine information gathered by a cookie with personally identifiable information.

Third-Party Websites

This website contains hyperlinks to third party web sites. It also contains advertisements of third parties. Grocery Business Media is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such third party web sites or advertisers. We do not share any of the individual personal information you provide to us, except as stated elsewhere within this Privacy Policy, and although we may share general, aggregate data with such third parties (such as how many people use our site). Please check with those web sites to determine their privacy policy.


Grocery Business Media takes reasonable precautions to protect your Personal Information. In all cases, information is retained in secure facilities, protected from unauthorized access and kept only as long as is reasonably required.

We offer the use of a secure server. All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our Payment gateway provider's database only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, Grocery Business Media does not represent, warrant, covenant or guarantee that your Personal Information transmitted over the Internet will be protected against loss, misuse or alteration and does not accept any liability for Personal Information lost, misused or altered during such transmission.

Changes to the Privacy Policy

Grocery Business Media reserves the right to change or amend this Privacy Policy at any time by posting a new Privacy Policy at this location. Please check back periodically for any such changes or amendments. This Privacy policy was last updated on February 1st, 2012.

If you still have unresolved concerns with respect to the treatment of your Personal Information by Grocery Business Media, you may address these concerns, in writing, to Grocery Business Media's Chief Privacy Officer at the following address:
