The Cucina.com Privacy Statement

At Cucina.com, we are committed to your privacy. We have created this policy to demonstrate our commitment to you and to help you understand it.

We’ll try as hard as possible to make this information understandable in plain English. But the privacy policy also has legal implications, so there might be some legal words and definitions that we just can’t do without. Bear with us, please?

The policy explains how we will gather and disseminate information at this Web site: http://www.cucina.com.

How we use your IP address

We may use your Internet Protocol (IP) address to help diagnose problems with our server and track movement within our web site only to optimize your experience. We may also collect the referring URL, access times and browser type. We will not link this information to any personally identifiable information.

How we use cookies

Our site uses "cookies" to make your experience at our site specific to you. Currently, if you set your browser to reject cookies, you cannot use Cucina.com. We also plan to use cookies to keep track of how you found out about our site (i.e., what link to Cucina on another site you may have clicked on).

Information Collected and Use and Disclosure of Information

Our site’s registration form requires users to give us contact information (like your name and e-mail address), basic demographic information (like your zip code, age, gender, and education level), and a password. We may use your contact information to get in touch with you when necessary (for instance, to get more information about a company you’re contacting, to see what follow-up action you may want us to take, or if you send feedback on us).

We will always ask you for permission before sharing your contact information with third parties interested in sending information and promotional offers about their products and services. We use an "opt-in" process, meaning you have to choose to participate or receive information from us or our partners. If you do opt in, we will use the contact information from your registration form. You can decide whether to participate in future promotional offers. See the "Choice/Opt-In" section below.

Cucina.com may occasionally use contractors and third-party service providers to assist in certain of its operations. Sometimes it is necessary for these contractors and service providers to access databases containing personally identifiable user information in order to provide services to Cucina. Such contractors and service providers are not permitted to use or disclose such information except for the purpose of providing services to Cucina.com.

In addition, Cucina may disclose personally identifiable user information to others when we believe, in good faith, that such release is reasonably necessary to (i) comply with the requirements of the law or a legal process served on us; (ii) enforce or apply the terms of any of our user agreements; or (iii) protect the rights, property or safety of Cucina, our users, or others.

Choice/Opt-In

Our site gives you the opportunity to "opt-in" to receive communications from us and our partners each time we have the opportunity to request information about you. We will not automatically send you information/offers you don’t want. Users who no longer wish to receive communications from us and our partners may contact us at any time to change their status from "opt-in" to "opt-out." See the "Access/Correct/Update Your Information" section below.

Public Forums

Cucina.com may make chat rooms, forums, message boards and/or news groups available to its users. Any information disclosed in these areas becomes public information. You should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information. We reserve the right to remove any posted material for any reason (for instance, if it is offensive, defamatory, libelous or in poor taste).

E-mail Links

We use e-mail links located on the "Feedback" page to allow you to contact us directly with any questions or comments you may have. We read every message sent in and try to respond directly to your questions or comments. This information is used to respond directly to your questions or comments. We may also file your comments to improve the site and program, or review and discard the information. Your personal information is only shared with third parties with your permission.

Third-Party Collection and Use of Information

Security

Cucina.com has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Data is stored on separate servers that exist behind secured firewalls.

Notification of Changes

If we change our privacy policy, we will post a notice on our site so our users are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by e-mail. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their previously submitted information in this different manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.
