Your Privacy Rights
Effective Date: September 1, 2019
This Policy is subject to change. If we materially change our information retention or usage practices, we will let you know by posting the Policy changes here on the Site, and/or otherwise making you aware of the changes. Please refer to the “Effective Date” above to see when we last updated this Policy.
We intend to process your personal data in the United States, where data protection and privacy regulations may or may not be to the same level of protection as in other parts of the world. BY VISITING THIS SITE AND THE SERVICE, YOU UNEQUIVOCALLY AND UNAMBIGUOUSLY CONSENT TO OUR COLLECTING AND PROCESSING IN THE UNITED STATES THE INFORMATION THAT YOU VOLUNTARILY SUBMIT TO US. YOU ALSO AGREE THAT THE LAW OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNS OUR COLLECTING AND PROCESSING OF YOUR INFORMATION.
We collect two types of information about persons who use our Services: (1) Information that you voluntarily provide to us; and (2) information that our Services automatically collect. We explain both below.
Personal Information That We Voluntarily Collect from You
The information that we may collect from you includes:
While Tasty Ribbon may ask you for payment card information in order to process orders, we use a third-party service provider to process that data. Tasty Ribbon does not routinely collect or store payment card or other financial information from you.
Our Services also collect “Non-Personal Information” from you. Non-Personal Information is information that, while it assists us to provide our services to you, does not identify you specifically. This includes information such as your gender, the types of products that you purchased, your user history, the type of device you used to access our Services and its operating system, the pages you accessed most frequently, how pages are used, applications downloaded, or search terms entered, among other data points.
Information That We Automatically Collect from You
Tasty Ribbon automatically tracks Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to collect information. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your device whenever you use the Internet.
Tasty Ribbon Services may also use web beacons, pixel tags, cookies, embedded links, and other commonly used information-gathering tools. These services enable us to recognize your computer when you log in so that we can tailor information to your liking. A “cookie” is a small file containing a string of alphanumeric characters that uniquely identifies your browser. Cookies enable us to confirm that you have visited Tasty Ribbon previously, to keep track of the status of your account and shopping cart, and to perform other necessary functions on the Services. You can set up your browser to accept all cookies or notify you when a cookie is set. However, if you set your browser to disable all cookies, some features of our Services will not function properly.
Your Access To and Control Over Information
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number given on our website:
Use of Information
Tasty Ribbon Internal Use of Your Information
Tasty Ribbon accepts and gathers certain types of information in an effort to provide you with products and the Services that you voluntarily request from us. We may also use this information to help us develop and improve or our Services, fulfill your requests, inform you about our offers that you request, tailor our Services to meet your interests, and for other purposes permitted by law. We may use aggregate and non-personal information to advertise and promote the Services.
Sharing Information Collected with Third Parties, Consultants, and Affiliates
We may share your personal information with our business associates, consultants, service providers, advisors and affiliates in order for them to provide services to you and to Tasty Ribbon.
While we do not collect or process your payment method, we do share it and your personal information with payment processors in order to process your transaction. Further, Tasty Ribbon does provide your name and address to carriers to complete shipments to you of Tasty Ribbon’s products.
Tasty Ribbon may disclose the information that we collect from you to the extent that we believe it necessary to comply with the law, such as in response to a subpoena or court order, to defend a legal claim or otherwise as permitted by applicable law. Additionally, we may transfer your information to successor in interest, which may include but may not be limited to a third-party in the event of an acquisition, sale, merger or bankruptcy.

“Do Not Track” Signals
We employ procedural and technical safeguards to keep your information secure, and protect it against loss, theft, alteration, and unauthorized access, use and disclosure. Tasty Ribbon uses a “Secure Sockets Layer,” or “SSL,” which is the industry standard security protocol for encrypting links between our Services and your browser. Our use of SSL ensures that the data that you transmit to us remains encrypted. We also employ other security procedures to protect your information from unauthorized access by users inside and outside the company.
Regardless of all of Tasty Ribbon’s precautions, no transmission of data over the Internet is ever completely secure. Third parties that we do not control may intercept or access transmissions or private communications unlawfully. While we strive to protect personal information, we cannot guarantee, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us.
Access and Control
You can access your Tasty Ribbon account to update your account, and change your username, login and your shipping information at any time.
E-Mail and Electronic Newsletters
We may offer electronic newsletters and e-mails concerning promotions, new products and services, or other marketing materials as a service to our users. You may receive newsletters and e-mails concerning promotions and marketing of ours, after you register through with the Services. If, after you have received a message, you no longer wish to receive such materials, you may opt-out by following the unsubscribe instructions included in each electronic newsletter and e-mail.
Children and Privacy
We do not knowingly permit users to register for our Services if they are under 18 years old. We therefore do not request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 18. If we become aware that a customer is under the age of 18, we will remove his or her personally identifiable registration information from our files. If you are the parent or guardian of a person under the age of 18 who has provided personally identifiable information to us, please inform us by contacting us at the e-mail address below and we will remove such information from our database.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, pursuant to 47 U.S.C. Section 230 (d), as amended, we hereby notify you that parental control protections are commercially available to assist you in limiting access to material that is harmful to minors. More information on the availability of such software can be found through publicly available sources. You may wish to contact your internet service provider for more information.
