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.
The Ricecracker's sites contain links to other Web sites. None of the
information that you provide to us will be transmitted to other Web
sites. Ricecracker's is not responsible for the privacy practices or
the content of such Web sites.
Ricecracker's may also use on its Internet properties a personalization
technology called a "cookie." A cookie is a small text file
placed on your computer's hard disk that identifies your browser software
to a Web site. Cookies allow us to track when you enter, leave, and
re-enter our sites and what path you take through our sites. In doing
this, we can provide you with a more personalized experience.
If you would like to be notified when you receive a cookie and given
the option of accepting it, you can set your browser accordingly. For
more information about how you can do that, and on cookie technologies
in general, please visit http://www.cookiecentral.com
