5. COOKIES.

A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user’s computer for record-keeping purposes. We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies on our websites. We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our site. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. Persistent cookies enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance their experience on our site. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser’s “help” file.

If you reject cookies, you may still use our websites, but your ability to use some areas of our sites will be limited and we will not be able to provide you with the most convenient experience.

6. LOG FILES.

As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, the operating system you may be using (e.g., Windows XP or Mac OS), a date/time stamp of when you visited our site and click-stream data.

We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyse aggregate trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.

7. DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION.

Except as provided in this policy, we will not disclose personal information about you without your prior consent or for the primary purpose for which we received it (e.g., to fill a product order). Like many companies, however, we may share aggregate information about people who use our site (for example, the number of people who cook chicken most often for their main meal) to business partners and other third parties.

8. COMPLIANCE WITH LAW.

Under certain circumstances, it is possible that personal information may be subject to disclosure pursuant to judicial or other legal requirements, such as warrants, subpoenas or court orders. VINA AROMA will comply with any court order or other legal process and will provide your personal information if required in any legal proceeding. We also may release personal information when we believe in good faith that such release is appropriate to protect the rights, property or safety of VINA AROMA users, employees or others. This may include, for example, exchanging information with other organisations for fraud protection and/or credit risk reduction.

9. SECURITY.

VINA AROMA’s website employs appropriate security measures that are designed to prevent the loss, misuse, unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration or destruction of personal information.

10. NOTE TO PARENTS.

We don’t knowingly collect personal information from children. If you are under the age of 18, please do not use this site. Parents may have information related to their children deleted from our database and refuse to permit further collection or use of the child’s information.

11. LINKS TO OTHER SITES.

This website may contain links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by VINA AROMA. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of these other sites, including those that enable you to apply for a position with our company, or those that may administer contests, sweepstakes or other promotions on our behalf. We provide links to third party websites as a convenience to our site visitors. These links are not intended as an endorsement of or referral to the linked websites. The linked websites have separate and independent privacy statements, notices and terms of use, which we recommend you read carefully. We do not have any control over such websites, and therefore we have no responsibility or liability for the manner in which the organisations that operate such linked websites may collect, use or disclose, secure and otherwise treat your personal information.
