Michael Angelo's Privacy Policy

Michael Angelo's Gourmet Foods, Inc. values your privacy and understands your privacy concerns. We have worked hard for over 30 years to build trust with our customers and will continue to do so. This privacy policy explains how Michael Angelo's will use any information collected from you when you visit our website. Our privacy statement applies only to information collected by this website. Michael Angelo's collects information from you on its website in two ways: 1) personal information provided by you on the website and 2) through the use of computer cookies.

PERSONAL INFORMATION PROVIDED BY YOU

Michael Angelo's currently has an electronic newsletter and may launch other electronic products in the future. In order to receive these products, it is necessary that you provide us with information, such as your name and email address. In addition, we may ask for additional optional demographic information so that we can provide you a more personalized experience on our site.

From time-to-time we may also provide you the opportunity to participate in contests or surveys on our site. If you participate, we will request certain personal information from you, such as contact and demographic information.

All of the above information that we receive from you is voluntary on your part. You do not need to send us any information to use our website. However, if you wish to voluntarily participate in any of the above programs, you will need to provide us with the applicable information.

MICHAEL ANGELO'S USE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

Michael Angelo's uses the information we collect from you to customize content we deliver to you on our website and through our newsletter, provide you with information or services you request, conduct research of our website's visitors for use in our business and product planning and improvements, and to improve our overall service to you.

Michael Angelo's will at no time use your personal information for any other purposes or allow third parties to use your personal information for their own use, except to provide services you requested on our website, or as required by law. We DO NOT link aggregate user data with personally identifiable information. We DO NOT sell or provide personally identifiable information to unaffiliated third parties, except to third parties who help us deliver information that you have requested, or as required by law. We will provide your personal information to our business partners solely for the purpose of them providing a requested service that we cannot. In addition, we will only share personally identifying information with these business partners if they agree not to disclose the information to other parties and agree not to use this information to solicit from you.

We do not solicit or collect any type of information from a person that we know is under the age of 18. If we discover that we've accidentally collected information from a child, we will attempt to remove that child's information from our records as soon as feasibly possible.

LINKS TO OTHER SITES

This Web site contains links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by Michael Angelo's. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personal information from you.

MICHAEL ANGELO'S USE OF COMPUTER

A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user's computer for record-keeping purposes. Michael Angelo's does use cookies on its website. When you visit our website, our computer servers may automatically receive and record information from your browser. This information may include your IP address, your web browser type and operating system, session time, click path analysis, and the pages you request. We use this information in an aggregate way to monitor usage and improve our website. Cookies DO NOT contain any personally identifiable information such as your name or email address.

SECURITY

This website takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line. When our registration or order forms ask users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card numbers), that information is encrypted and protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, such as when you are just 'surfing' the internet.
