Christmas-Cookies.com has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses the information gathering and dissemination practices for this Web site.
INFORMATION AUTOMATICALLY LOGGED
We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our Web site. We also use your IP address to help us identify hackers and others who misuse this website. In this way, we can protect you and other users, and prevent lost business that may result from hackers’ activity. Your IP address is also used to gather broad demographic information so that we may better serve you and the community. This information is used at the server level, with the server recognizing the IP address and not the indivdual person.
INFORMATION PROVIDED BY THE USER
In our contact form and recipe submissions form, you may voluntarily submit your name and e-mail address. We will use this information only to e-mail you with a response to your questions or to ask for clarification about the recipe or other information sent. We will never share your e-mail address with a third party, nor will we use your e-mail address for any other purpose. Ever.
On our recipe review forms, you may leave your name and location (example: “Sue in New York”) but this is entirely voluntary on your part and we encourage you to be vague. Your IP is logged to prevent spam, but again, we cannot identify individuals from your IP address.
OUR COMMITMENT TO DATA SECURITY
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. Customer information is stored on a secured server with password security. The servers themselves are stored in a facility featuring 24 hour video surveillance which requires a pass-code to enter. Nightly backups are made of all data and activity on the servers is tracked and recorded.
