    • We have a parent's permission to share the information if the user is a child under age 13. Parents have the option of allowing FoodHood.com to collect and use their child's information without consenting to FoodHood.com sharing of this information with people and companies who may use this information for their own purposes.

    • We believe it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of FoodHood.com's Terms and Conditions of Use, or as otherwise required by law.

    • We transfer information about you if FoodHood.com is acquired by or merged with another company. In this event, FoodHood.com will notify you before information about you is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.
