If you have any questions about this policy, please contact privacy@bycarel.com.

To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.

The Information We Collect:

This notice applies to all information collected or submitted on the byCarel.com website for use of the byCarel.com products and services. If you elect to become a member, membership requires the submission of personally identifiable information. This information includes name, email address, address, and other personal information. The option is also available to sign up for newsletters which require only a name and email address.

Information collected for the purpose of membership and/or newsletters is stored in a secure database. Data will not be released to third parties except as required by law and under the order of a court of law. We will not sell or trade your personal information, but we may make available aggregate demographic data of our membership base in general for the purpose of obtaining site sponsorship or financing. Aggregate data simply consists of the percentages and totals of people who use byCarel.com that fit in specific age groups, genders, geographical locations, etc. and does not contain any personally identifiable information.

Cookies and Logs:

Upon login, byCarel.com creates a session cookie so that the user may access the site for a continual period of time without needing to be logged in. Unless the user opts for byCarel.com to remember them upon subsequent visits, this session cookie expires when the browser window is closed. If the user opts to be remembered, a persistent cookie is written to the user's cookie storage area. The persistent cookie does not contain personally identifiable information, but allows the site to be accessed under the user account. Should the user elect to store images links in a cookie-based folder for future access, a persistent cookie is written to the user's cookie storage area that contains non-identifiable information about the user and provides access to the images without login.

byCarel.com uses server logs to generate statistical data about site usage. Server logs contain the IP address your computer uses to access the internet, the referring site, search terms you may have used to locate our site, and other data that does not personally identify you to the byCarel.com site. These logs are used only to determine areas of the site that are popular and to aggregate the amount of visits to pages over periods of time.

Third Party Vendor Collection of Data:

byCarel.com uses third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our website. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. For more information on the privacy policies and removal instructions for these third party services, please consult the privacy policies for these third-party vendors.

Use of Data, Storage of Data, and Deletion of Data:

As indicated previously in this policy, byCarel.com collects personal data only voluntarily from site users and does not make personally identifiable information available to third parties except under direct order of the court or law enforcement agencies.

At any point, site members may have their data removed from our servers by selecting to delete their account (from within account services), and/or unsubscribing to newsletters or feeds. Cookies may be deleted by using the delete cookie folder option on the site and/or selecting the option to log out of the site. Optionally the end user may choose to delete byCarel.com cookies from the cookie storage area of their system manually or by use of a cookie removal tool.

We use information you provide so that an item may be shipped or emailed to another party or address only to complete that order. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.

We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties. When using 'send this to a friend' features, we use the email you have provided to send a message to the third party, we do not record that email address in our databases.
