The Maine Pie Line uses Google Analytics to facilitate data collection. The analytics suite collects anonymous, non-personally-identifying information that web browsers typically make available: browser type, screen resolution, operating system, and regional location. Additionally, it tracks your behavior within the Maine Pie Line site including page visits and interactions.
If you send us a message via our online form, we are directly sent all content you submit in the form fields. This may include your name and email if you choose to volunteer this information.
Whenever you place an order, you have to input personal information such as name, address, email, and payment information. We are currently using Paypal as a payment processor, so this data collection does not take place directly on the Maine Pie Line site. Paypal shares some of this information with Maine Pie Line to facilitate your order. This information includes names, addresses, and emails. To view how Paypal deals with its data, please look here.
We also use social buttons provided by services like Twitter and Facebook. Your use of these third party services is entirely optional. We are not responsible for the privacy policies and/or practices of these third party services, and you are responsible for reading and understanding those third party services’ privacy policies.
Use of the Data
With the variety of browsers and devices available to access this website, it becomes important to look at our analytics data to ensure we are making good decisions regarding the update and management of the site. We use our data to fix bugs or produce updates for the benefit of our customers. For instance, if we see that a significant percentage of our visitors are using mobile devices we might introduce special features that allow better browsing for mobile. We also monitor our analytic data to see how we are ranking with various search engines.
We will also use collected data to identify abusers of our website and server (spam bots or malicious visitors) so we can make an effort to ban them.
Maine Pie Line is a local Maine business in the food industry. We have absolutely no interest to donate, sell, or otherwise give away any of the personal information we collect on this website. We like to use our powers for good and to help us serve you better.
