Privacy Statement

Personal Information

Ricecracker's considers your privacy to be of utmost importance. In general, you may browse our Internet properties anonymously. However, certain of our online services require the collection of some personally identifying information, such as your name, address, and, when appropriate, your credit information.

Any personally identifying information you provide to us is securely stored in a database to which only authorized Ricecracker's employees and agents have access. For particularly sensitive information, such as credit card numbers and accounting information, Ricecracker's will employ accepted transmission and storage protocols, such as encryption, to prevent this information from being disclosed. Personally identifying information is not shared with third parties (other than in the course of completing a transaction at your request), even if you are a buyer or seller at auction, unless reasonably believed to be required by law, court order or any other such legal process. This information may, however, be used for internal data processing, such as compiling statistical information about the use of our Internet properties. As a service to you, we may also use this information to customize the content we offer. In addition, if you e-mail us or supply us with your e-mail address, we may use that address for future communications with you. If you would like to specify how you wish to be contacted by us, you may so indicate in the boxes provided for that purpose wherever they appear on our site and we will respect your wishes.
