Other third party services
Like most websites, this one uses third party services to help it operate. We chose them carefully, and their businesses depend on their ability to adhere to the highest privacy and security standards, but we cannot be responsible for errors or negligence on the part of third party services.
Website hosting. AmazingRibs.com lives on a computer at a reputable website hosting service that uses industry-standard security safeguards. The host is not authorized to use any information you provide under any circumstances.
Newsletter. We publish a free email newsletter named Smoke Signals with the help of a well-regarded email service provider. You may cancel your subscription at any time by clicking the link at the bottom of every newsletter. They store your email address and are not authorized to use it for any purpose. They are an industry leader and are widely respected for their integrity. If they cheated and spammed people they would be out of business in a hurry.
AmazingRibs.com products. We have some humorous aprons, T-shirts, and other fun tchotchkes available for sale through a service called CafePress. If you purchase a product or service from them, they request information on their order form such as name, email, shipping address, credit card info, etc. They use this information for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If they have trouble processing an order, they will use this information to contact you. That's all.
Surveys or Contests. From time-to-time we may offer contests or surveys. Participation is completely voluntary and you have a choice whether or not to disclose any information.
