Privacy Policy

Because your privacy is very important to Spice Barn, we want you to understand our practices with regard to collecting and using your information both online and offline and the steps we take to safeguard it.  This statement applies to Personally Identifiable Information collected from our customers.  When this Privacy Policy uses the term, “Personally Identifiable Information,” it refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are and can be used to identify, contact or locate you.  Personally Identifiable Information might include your name, mailing address, telephone number, mobile phone number, email address, and other identification and contact information.  We may also collect certain financial information; whenever we do so, we will attempt to provide a link to this Privacy Policy so that you can confirm how this information will be used.  With this information, we can fill your service and product orders and better provide you with personalized services.  By visiting this website, you accept the practices described in this Privacy Policy.  If you do not agree with this Privacy Policy, please leave this website and do not use any portion of it.

“Non-Personally Identifiable Information” refers to information that does not identify a specific individual by itself or in combination with other information.  We may gather certain information about you such as age, date of birth, gender, as well as consumer purchasing information based upon where you shop on our website.  This information may be compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis.  This information may include this website’s Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) that you just came from, which URL you next go to, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address.  A URL is the global address of documents and other resources on the Internet. An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (“TCP/IP”) network, such as the Internet.  Networks use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address of the destination.  In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Internet, allowing Internet servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Internet, browse and shop.

b. Non-Personally Identifiable Information.

We use the Non-Personally Identifiable Information that we collect from our customers and other visitors in a manner that does not personally identify any individual.  We use Non-Personally Identifiable Information to make our website more interesting and useful to you and others.  We also track the pages or documents accessed within our website. This information is collected for systems administration and for analyzing and improving the value of the material available on our website.  This Non-Personally Identifiable Information may be used to help our advertisers or our site design teams create advertisements our guests might like.

Cookies: Like many other commercial sites, our website utilizes standard technologies called “cookies” to collect information about how our website is used.  A cookie is a small data text file, that a website stores on your computer’s hard drive (if your web browser permits) that can later be retrieved to identify you to us.  Cookies are designed to help a website recognize a user’s browser as a previous visitor and thus save and remember any preferences that may have been set while the user was browsing the site.  A cookie cannot be read by a website other than the one that set the cookie.  Cookies can securely store a customer’s password, personalize home pages, identify which parts of a site have been visited or keep track of selections, such as those selected in a “shopping cart.”  For instance, cookies allow us to prepopulate (or fill in) an email field with your email address if you revisit one of our website and place an order.  A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive, pass on a computer virus, or capture your email address.  We send a cookie to your hard drive when you place an order to record the product name, category of product that you ordered, the amount paid, the order number and any referral codes.  No Personally Identifiable Information is recorded.  When you click through to our website from a promotional email or advertisement, our third-party advertising service partner may send a cookie to your hard drive recording your IP address and other related information.
