CAKE collects non-personally identifying information to better understand how CAKE’s visitors use its website.
CAKE also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blog. CAKE only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
The amount and type of personally-identifying information that CAKE gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive gourmetsugarservice.com updates via email, we collect their email address. In each case, CAKE collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with CAKE. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, however, it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
2. Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
CAKE discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on CAKE’s behalf, and (ii) have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using CAKE’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
CAKE will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, CAKE discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when CAKE believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of CAKE, third parties or the public at large.
If you are a registered user of the CAKE website and have supplied your email address, CAKE may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with CAKE and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum.
If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. CAKE takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
