How is my personally identifiable information used?
Customized Look and Feel. CoffeeNetwork gathers user information to provide you with an effortless user experience. For instance, your personal information enables us to greet you when you return to our site and to provide you with your specified preferences (e.g., Web site look and feel and preferred categories); as well as services we think will be of interest to you. We review our users' preferences, demographics, traffic patterns, and other information in the aggregate so that we can better understand who our audience is and what it is they want.
Banner Advertising. Tracking user preferences also helps us serve you targeted advertising. Targeted advertisements are probably more interesting for you and are more productive for our advertisers. Please note that we do not share your personal information with advertisers. We or third party ad servers acting on our behalf act as the middleman between you and the advertisers that want to reach you. Our third party ad servers may have access to your personal information, but are bound by the terms of this Privacy Statement pursuant to our agreements with them.
E-mail and Mail. If you register as a member with our site, from time to time, we may email or mail to you or otherwise communicate to you informative messages about our services or third party products and services we believe may be of interest to you. You may, at any time after registration, write to us so that you no longer receive such offers and mailings. Please check the registration screens applicable to the service or promotion for which you are signing-up for specific instructions on how to update your user profile and/or opt out of receiving offers and mailings.
You Have Options to Control Your Personal Information. Most browsers can be configured to reject cookies or alert you when cookies are being sent. You may request the removal of your personal information from our user records by sending e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will send an email to confirm your request. After you respond, we will remove your personally identifiable information from our database. Residual information may remain in our archives and records, but this information will not be used for a commercial purpose (however we may notify you of major changes to our service from time to time). We reserve the right to maintain information on any users who have violated our Terms of Service or who have had their access to CoffeeNetwork blocked in order to detect repeat offenders.
Privacy of Your Information. You should be aware that if you voluntarily disclose personal information online in a public area, that information may be collected and used by others. We do not control the actions of our visitors and registered members.
Please remember that protection of your privacy begins with you. You are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of any password you use to register, and you should always be careful and responsible whenever disclosing information online. Although we will use all reasonable efforts to safeguard the privacy of your personal information, transmissions made by means of the Internet cannot be made absolutely secure. CoffeeNetwork assumes no liability for disclosure of data due to errors in transmission or unauthorized third parties.
