We may collect certain information you voluntarily provide to us which may contain personal information. For example, to set up an Appetite account you are required to complete the registration process.

We may also collect user profile information such as age, gender, address, postcode, survey responses, voting choices and areas of special interest to you.
Web beacons are small electronic image files that we may place on the site web pages and within certain email. Combined with cookies, web beacons allow us to count the number of unique users who have visited a specific page and the number of times those pages are displayed. We can also use web beacons to let us know how many people opened certain types of email. Information we may collect using web beacons will be in aggregate form only and will not contain your personal information. Third party advertisers may use web beacons in their advertisements on Appetite sites. This enables us to compile aggregated statistics and determine the effectiveness of promotional campaigns. We do not allow web beacons on our sites to be used by third parties to collect or access your personal information.
