You can browse our site anonymously without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. If you do, we may anonymously track your internet IP address, time, and page access in order to assess how to improve our service. You will provide us with personal information which we will collect if you choose to:

    • We will collect your viewing habits;
    • We will collect usage information.

The principal reasons that we collect information in such circumstances are:

    • To improve customer service (your information helps us to more effectively respond to your customer service requests and support needs);
    • Help prevent fraud;
    • To process transactions.

If you provide us with personal information directly or through your use of the system, you consent to our transfer, storage and use of that information. We may collect and store the following personal information:

  • transactional information based on your activities on the sites (such as buying, selling, item and content you generate or that relates to your account);
    • shipping, billing and other information you provide to purchase or ship an item;
    • community discussions, chats, dispute resolution, correspondence through our sites, and correspondence sent to us;

    • additional information we ask you to submit to authenticate yourself or if we believe you are violating site policies (for example, we may ask you to send us an ID or bill to verify your address, or to answer additional questions online to help verify your identity or ownership of an item you list);
    • information from other companies, such as demographic and navigation data;
    • other supplemental information from third parties (for example, if you incur a debt to CHICKENCOOPCOMPANY.COM, we will generally conduct a credit check by obtaining additional information about you from a credit bureau, as permitted by law).

With your permission, CHICKENCOOPCOMPANY.COM may also transfer to CHICKENCOOPCOMPANY.COM profile information contained in your third-party profile should services with third parties be offered. CHICKENCOOPCOMPANY.COM may also, for your use, enable you to import information about who you are connected to, as well as enable you to share information with those third-party sites. If you wish to discontinue such sharing, you will be able to do so through by updating your preference in the third party’s page.

The Disclosure of Your Information

We may share your personal information with:

  • Members of the CHICKENCOOPCOMPANY.COM corporate family to provide joint content and services (like registration, transactions and customer support), to help detect and prevent potentially illegal acts and violations of our policies, and to guide decisions about their products, services and communications.

    • Service providers under contract who help with our business operations (such as fraud investigations, bill collection, affiliate and rewards programs and co-branded credit cards).
    • Other third parties to whom you explicitly ask us to send your information (or about whom you are otherwise explicitly notified and consent to when using a specific service).

(Should such a combination occur, we will require that the new combined entity follow this Privacy Policy with respect to your personal information.

  • We offer certain features that are available only through the use of cookies.
    • We use cookies to help identify you and maintain your signed-in status.
    • Most cookies are "session cookies," meaning that they are automatically deleted from your hard drive at the end of a session.
    • You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, although doing so may interfere with your use of some of our sites or services.

Personal information, such as your email address, may be collected through the Widget. Cookies may also be set by the Widget to enable it to function properly. Information collected by this Widget is governed by the privacy policy of the company that created it.

No Spam, Spyware or Spoofing

We and our users do not tolerate spam. Make sure to set your CHICKENCOOPCOMPANY.COM communication preferences so we communicate to you as you prefer. You are not licensed to add other CHICKENCOOPCOMPANY.COM users, even a user who has purchased an item from you, to your mailing list (email or physical mail) without their express consent. To report CHICKENCOOPCOMPANY.COM-related spam or spoof emails to CHICKENCOOPCOMPANY.COM, please forward the email to ADMIN@CHICKENCOOPCOMPANY.COM. You may not use our communication tools to send spam or otherwise send content that would violate our User Agreement. We automatically scan and may manually filter messages to check for spam, viruses, phishing attacks and other malicious activity or illegal or prohibited content, but we do not permanently store messages sent through these tools. We do not rent or sell these email addresses.

Links to Other Websites

Our site includes links to other websites whose privacy practices may differ from those of CHICKENCOOPCOMPANY.COM. If you submit personal information to any of those sites, your information is governed by their privacy statements. We encourage you to carefully read the privacy statement of any website you visit.

Blogs and Community Forums

Our website offers publicly accessible blogs or community forums. You should be aware that any information you provide in these areas could potentially be read, collected, and used by others who access them. Moreover, the information provided on these sites by third parties is not approved or endorsed by CHICKENCOOPCOMPANY.COM. If you spot any posting that you feel are inappropriate or violate our terms and conditions, please notify us at ADMIN@CHICKENCOOPCOMPANY.COM.

What Is the Policy for Visitors From Outside The U.S.?

If services are provided in your country, you can use that service by selecting the country of your choosing by using the country selector on the top of the page (if available). To the extent that you browse the US site anonymous data may be collected as described above. Such anonymous information will be stored in accordance with U.S. privacy laws, regulations, and standards, which may not be equivalent to the laws in your country of residence. By browsing our site or by providing us with your information, you consent to this collection, transfer, storage, and processing of information to and in the United States.

Minors

We do not specifically or knowingly provide or market our site to children under the age of 18 or collect, sell, or otherwise process Personal Information from children under the age of 18. Where a parent or legal guardian provides Personal Information of the parent or legal guardian’s child, unless otherwise specifically stated by the parent or legal guardian, we will assume parental or legal guardian consent has been given to process the child’s Personal Information for the purpose of providing a product.

"Do Not Track" Signals

Some web browsers may transmit "do not track" signals to the websites and other online services with which the browser communicates. There is no standard that governs what, if anything, websites should do when they receive these signals. CHICKENCOOPCOMPANY.COM currently does not take action in response to these signals. If and when a standard for responding is established, we may revisit its policy on responding to these signals.

Account Protection

Your password is the key to your account. Use unique numbers, letters and special characters, and do not disclose your CHICKENCOOPCOMPANY.COM password to anyone. If you do share your password or your personal information with others, remember that you are responsible for all actions taken in the name of your account. If you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your personal information and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf. Therefore, if your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately notify CHICKENCOOPCOMPANY.COM and change your password.

Accessing, Reviewing and Changing Your Personal Information

You can see, review and change most of your personal information by signing on to CHICKENCOOPCOMPANY.COM. Generally, we will not manually modify your personal information because it is very difficult to verify your identity remotely. You must promptly update your personal information if it changes or is inaccurate. Once you make a public posting, you may not be able to change or remove it. Upon your request, we will close your account as soon as reasonably possible, based on your account activity and in accordance with applicable law. We do retain personal information from closed accounts to comply with law, prevent fraud, collect any fees owed, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigations, enforce our CHICKENCOOPCOMPANY.COM User Agreement, and take other actions otherwise permitted by law. Even if your account is closed, reviews that you have submitted may stay visible on the site at our sole discretion.

Security

To the extent that CHICKENCOOPCOMPANY.COM or its Third-Party Processors maintain any information on you, your payment methods, your habits or your purchases, that information is maintained in servers located in the United States. We treat data as an asset that must be protected and use lots of tools (encryption, passwords, physical security, etc.) to protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure. However, as you probably know, third-parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, and other users may abuse or misuse your personal information that they collect from the site. Therefore, although we work very hard to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private.

Third Parties

Except as otherwise expressly included in this Privacy Policy, this document addresses only the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. If you disclose your information to others on our sites or on other sites throughout the Internet, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the information you disclose to them. CHICKENCOOPCOMPANY.COM does not control the privacy policies of third-parties, and you are subject to the privacy policies of those third-parties where applicable. We encourage you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We may amend this Privacy Policy at any time by posting the amended terms on this site. You should check the policy each time you use the site for changes.

If an amendment or update changes how we use your Personal Information or applicable law otherwise requires your consent, we will also seek your consent prior to such update applying to you. Upon providing notice as noted above, amendments and updates which do not require your consent will be effective regardless of whether your consent is obtained.
