A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. For instance, by setting a cookie on our site, the user would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our site. The only drawback to this is that the user will be limited in some areas of our site. For example, the user will not be able to participate in any of our sweepstakes, contests or monthly drawings that take place. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site.
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we, CiaoItaly.net, are not responsible for the privacy practices and content of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this web site.
CiaoItaly.net may provide aggregate statistics about our customers to trusted partners and advertisers, but these statistics include no personally identifying information. CiaoItaly.net may release account information when we believe, in good faith, that such release is reasonably necessary to (a) comply with the law, (b) enforce or apply the terms of any of our user agreements or (c) protect the rights, property or safety of CiaoItaly.net, our users, or others.
This web site takes every precaution to protect our users’ information. When users submit sensitive information via the web site, your information is protected both online and off-line. When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and is 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 unlocked, or open, when you are just ‘surfing’.
Our users are given the opportunity to ‘opt-out’ of having their information used for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where we ask for the information. This site also gives registered users the following options for removing their information from our database so they will no longer receive communications or service from us.
