The policies below are applicable to www.chocolopolis.com (the "Site") which is owned, produced, and maintained by RH Appetizing, Inc., dba Chocolopolis (the "Company"). The Company is strongly committed to protecting the privacy of its clients and other users of the Site. If you don't find your concern addressed here, feel free to contact us by e-mail or phone.
What Personal Information Do We Collect?
One of the basic principles we've followed in designing this Site is that we ask for only the information we need to provide the information or service that you've requested. As a result, the answer to this question depends almost entirely on how you choose to make use of this Site.
The Company collects personal information only during the ordering process or if you fill out the contact information form on our Contact page. We do not give out your information to anyone. Personal information is collected by specifically requesting it from you. Generally this occurs when you register at a site, request a service, or place an order.
In addition to the use of personal information to operate the Site, the Site may also gather anonymous information, which may be used by the Company to determine how our customers use parts of the Site, so we can improve our Site and ensure that it is as appealing as we can make it for as many of you as possible. Generally this information is collected through "traffic data" and may entail the use of "Cookies" "IP addresses" or other numeric codes used to identify a computer.
Information We Ask About You
Sometimes, we may specifically ask for information about you when you request information or sign up to use a service or when you order a product. We may need certain information -- including a name, Internet address or screen name, address, type of computer, credit card number -- in order to provide the requested information, service, or product. We may also use that information to let you know of additional products and services about which you might be interested. You can choose not to receive such information if you don't want to by letting us know on the registration screen when you sign up for the product or service. We also may ask you for information about your interests so that both you and we can take advantage of the interactivity of the Internet, but you may always choose whether to respond or not.
Policies for Children Under 16
Safeguarding the personal information of children is extremely important to us. No parts of this Site are specifically directed at children. No information should be submitted to or posted at the Site by guests under 16 years of age without the consent of their parent or guardian. Unless otherwise disclosed during collection, the Company does not provide any personally identifying information, regardless of its source, to any third party for any purpose whatsoever. All users who register on the Site receive e-mail confirming their registration. In addition, when a guest under 16 registers, his/her parent or guardian receives an e-mail alerting them to that registration. No information collected from users under 16 years of age is used for any marketing or promotional purpose whatsoever. There are a number of emerging standards in the area of children's privacy that will affect how we process a child's personal information in the future. We are monitoring these changes and, if necessary, will redesign our systems in order to comply with these new requirements.
How We Use the Information
We do not use or disclose information about your individual visits to our Site or information that you may give us, such as your name, address, email address or telephone number, to any outside companies. However, the Company may disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to applicable law or comply with legal process served on the Company or the Site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of the Company, the Site, or the users of the Site, and (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of Company personnel, users of the Site, or the public.
The Company does not sell any customer lists or e-mail addresses.
Links to Other Site
Users should be aware that when you are on the Site you could be directed to other sites that are beyond our control. There are links on our Site that take you to other web sites outside our service. These other sites may send their own cookies to users to collect data or solicit personal information. Always be aware of where you end up. Please keep in mind that whenever you give out personal information online - for example, via message boards or chat - that information can be collected and used by people you don't know. While the Company strives to protect your personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online and you do so at your own risk. Finally, please note that this policy applies only to the Site, and not to any linked web sites.
The importance of security for all personal information associated with you is of utmost concern to us. We exercise great care in providing secure transmission of your information from your PC to our servers. Personal information collected by the Site is stored in secure operating environments that are not available to the public. In many instances, such as in the case of credit card numbers, the personal information is encrypted before you conduct your transaction. Only those employees who need access to your information in order to do their jobs are allowed access, each having signed confidentiality agreements. Any employee who violates our privacy and/or security policies is subject to disciplinary action, including possible termination and civil and/or criminal prosecution.
