Collecting Your Information
In general, you can visit most of our web pages without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. We may track the Internet domain address from visitors and analyze this data for trends and statistics, but individual users will remain anonymous.

There may be instances (such as when you purchase or order a product, participate in promotions, etc.) when we ask you to provide certain information about yourself, such as your name, shipping/billing address, telephone number, email address, or credit card information. We maintain a record of your online product purchases. We also may collect information that identifies you personally when you submit comments, questions or suggestions.

Whether or not to provide such information is your choice, but if you choose not to provide the requested information, you may be unable to purchase products or access certain content on our web site.

Using Information About You
We use the personal information you provide for internal purposes, such as confirming and tracking your order and analyzing trends/statistics, or to contact you about new products, services and offers. Generally, the information we collect is used to improve the content of our Web pages.

We may contract with companies or persons to provide certain services including credit card processing and product shipping. We provide these companies with the information needed for them to perform these services.

Although unlikely, in certain instances we may disclose your personal information when we have reason to believe that it is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against persons or entities who may be causing injury to you, to Stony Brook Cookie Company or to others. We may also disclose your personal information when we believe the law requires it.

Cookies
Our web site may use "cookies." A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer.

Security
We make commercially reasonable efforts (including sophisticated encryption tools) to protect the security of your personal information that you share with us. We encrypt order information, including credit card numbers, using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to ensure that our customer information is safe as it is sent over the Internet to our server. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet can be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or from our web sites, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we will do our best to protect its security on our system.

We urge you to keep your password in a safe place and not to divulge it to anyone. Also remember to sign off your account and close your browser window when you have finished your visit. This is to ensure that others cannot access your account, especially if you are sharing a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place such as a library or Internet cafe.

Links to Other Sites
Our web site may contain links to web sites operated and maintained by third parties, over which we have no control. Privacy policies on such linked sites may be different from our privacy policy. You access such linked sites at your own risk. You should always read the privacy policy of a linked site before disclosing any personal information on such site.

Changes in Our Privacy Policy
If we change our privacy policy in whole or in part, we will inform you by posting a notice on our web site. Those changes will go into effect on the date posted in the notice. The new policy will apply to all current and past users of our web site and will replace any prior policies that are inconsistent with the updated policy. This policy was posted in March 2004.
