COLLECTING INFORMATION ABOUT YOU
In general, you can visit many of our web pages without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. We may track the Internet domain address from which people visit us and analyze this data for trends and statistics, but individual users will remain anonymous, unless you voluntarily tell us who you are.
There may be times (such as when you purchase or order a product, subscribe to a service, register to participate in contests, sweepstakes or promotions, etc.) at which we ask you to provide certain information about yourself, such as your name, shipping/billing address, telephone number, email address, credit card information, birth date, gender, occupation, personal interests, etc. We also maintain a record of your online product purchases. Whether or not to provide such information is completely your own choice. But if you choose not to provide the information we request, you may be unable to purchase products, or access certain services, offers and content on our Website.
USING INFORMATION ABOUT YOU
We use the personally identifiable information you provide for internal purposes, such as improving our website, confirming and tracking your order, analyzing trends and statistics, informing you of our new products, services and offers, and providing you with information from and about Cakes.com. We do not share your personally identifiable information with other organizations for commercial purposes. However, from time to time we might establish a business relationship with other persons or entities whom we believe trustworthy and whom we have asked to confirm that their privacy policies are consistent with ours. In such cases we might share and cross-reference information, including personally identifiable information about you that will enable such persons or entities to contact you regarding products and services that may be of interest to you.
We may contract with companies or persons to provide certain services including credit card processing, shipping, data management, promotional services, etc. We furnish our Service Providers with the information needed for them to perform these services. We also ask our Service Providers to confirm that their privacy practices are consistent with ours.
Although unlikely, in certain instances we may disclose your personally identifiable information when we have reason to believe that it is necessary, especially when required to do so by law.
