  3. Description of Services

    Tastalike offers services to users, and a distinction is made for unregistered and registered users.

    1. Service to both non-registered and registered users

      The basic service consists of providing the user with a taste-profile. This taste profile is user specific and is generated based on answers to a fixed set of questions. The questions relate to preferences or dislikes towards products with notable organoleptic (smell or taste) characteristics. These questions may change over time (both in content as in amount) and the result that is generated from the answers to the questions is also susceptible to change. Over time, the questionnaire is expanded with many more products, allowing for a more detailed taste profile. The user also has the option to focus on a certain set of products (for example fruits, spirits,…), to gain more insight relating to specific niches of products. When the product type of interest is not suitable for minors, this is indicated as required by law. For registered users, the history of the answers can be maintained allowing the user to finetune the taste profile over subsequent surveys. The user is also presented with products that – based on the taste profile – have an increased chance to appeal to the user. Hyperlinks to third parties that offer these products are provided and specific promotions for registered users may apply which are otherwise not available. We expressly state that the hyperlinks and the information about products pertaining to the taste profile are not to be judged as an advice to buy these products. The service attempts to provide the user with ideas for new tastes and products which the user can explore at its own discretion. We cannot guarantee that our service will be available at all times, neither can we guarantee that the taste profile is fully accurate. The user acknowledges this when using the services on this website.

    2. Service to registered users only

      The user has the option to register on this site to gain access to additional services. These additional services are free to use, no cost is involved. These services are aimed at users older than 17 but depending on the type of service they are also accessible for users younger than 18. Users younger than 18 are required to have parent consent to use several features. Additionally, if alcoholic beverages are included, under no circumstance are people younger than 18 allowed to use these services and Tastalike will restrict access if this is the case. To register for the additional services, the users should click on a “register button”, which may be found at some of the pages of the website available to non-registered users. Upon registration, the user will be asked personal information such as: name, address, gender, age and contact information. The contact details may be used for newsletter emails. The user can at all times change his email settings, by opting out via links provided in the promotional material or by sending an email to info@tastalike.com. The contact emails will be used to contact the user among other with notifications related to the Terms of Use agreement. The user has at all times the right to cancel the agreement by contacting Tastalike at info@tastalike.com. Personal data will only be used as stipulated in the Privacy Policy.

      After registration, the user has access to the advanced services until the agreement between the user and Tastalike is cancelled. A breach of the Terms of Use agreement for example will lead to a cancellation. Tastalike has the right to cancel the agreement at all times at its own discretion. As with the basic service Tastalike cannot guarantee that all services are available at all times or that the content of the services will remain identical over time.

      To registered users, a more diverse service is offered in addition to the basic service. The user can take part in product-testing. The product-testing consists of accepting parcels with new or existing products offered by third parties, trying these products and providing feedback regarding the appeal of these products. Tastalike provides no guarantees that users can take part in the product-testing surveys (even if the user applied), nor does it provide guarantees regarding the frequency of these surveys or that the products will appeal to the user. The user has no obligation to provide feedback after receiving the products; however how the user interacts with Tastalike has an important contribution on being selected for subsequent product-testing surveys. Trying the proposed products is at the user’s own discretion, Tastalike will not be held liable for possible unfavorable consequences (such as for example but not limited to allergic reactions) following the use of the proposed products; however, Tastalike will attempt to provide the required information that allows the user to inform himself about the suitability of the product. If the person is younger than 18, he or she should have parent consent before signing up for the product testing.
