Privacy Policy

Your privacy matters to us


Welcome to Orleans Coffee. Because we are committed to protecting your privacy in all aspects of our business, we hope you will take the time to read this policy, which explains what information we collect from you and how we use that information. By using our Web site or purchasing products or services from us, you agree to be bound by this policy. If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect and how we use it. Please check back periodically!

What information we collect and how we use it


When you visit our Web site, Orleans Coffee collects your IP address, which we use to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer our Web site, and to improve our products and services. Your IP address also is used to gather broad demographic information that does not personally identify you.

To order from us you must set up an Orleans Coffee account. Setting up an account requires you to provide your email address and choose a password (your "Account Information"). When you order from us, we also ask for your name, shipping address, telephone number, and your credit card number, billing address, and expiration date (your "Order Information"). This information is necessary for us to process your order, to notify you of your order status, and to fulfill orders.

If you subscribe to the Orleans Coffee newsletter, we may use your Account Information and Order Information to occasionally notify you about important changes to the Web site, new Orleans Coffee features, or special Orleans Coffee Exchange offers you may find useful. If you would rather not receive this information, visit the Your Account page to change your preferences. You always have the ability to change your preferences. If you have chosen to receive this information and change your mind, visit the Your Account page to change your preferences. (Whenever you decide to change your preferences, please make sure to change your preferences for each account or email address you have left with us.)

You may also choose to provide personal information, such as your name and address, when you enter a contest or drawing or participate in a survey. We may use this information the same way we use your Account Information and Order Information.

How we protect your information


This Web site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. When you place orders or access your account information, we use a secure server. The secure server layer (SSL) encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us. All of the customer data we collect is similarly protected against unauthorized access.

Orleans Coffee will not share your personal information with third parties unless you have consented to the disclosure or the disclosure is necessary to (1) comply with the law or with legal process, (2) protect and defend our rights and property, (3) protect our customers or users from misuse or unauthorized use of the Orleans Coffee Web site, (4) protect the personal safety or property of our customers or the public, or (5) to fulfill orders of Seller items that usually ship in 2 to 3 business days to United States and Canadian customers.

Orleans Coffee may provide aggregate statistics about our customers, sales, traffic patterns, and related Web site information to third parties, but these statistics will include no personally identifying information. Put simply, we will not tell our business partners that you bought a particular item, but we may tell them how many customers in certain demographic groups bought certain items.

Links to other Web sites


The Orleans Coffee Web site contains links to other sites, operated by third parties, that we think may be of interest to you. Orleans Coffee Exchange encourages third parties to follow appropriate privacy standards and policies, but is not responsible for the actions of those parties, the content of their Web sites, or any products or services they may offer.

Cookies


The Orleans Coffee Web site uses "cookies," which are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer's hard drive. Our cookies do not contain any personally identifying information, but they do enable us to provide a shopping cart and to store your shipping and billing information between visits. If you've set your browser to reject cookies, you can still use our site, but will not be able to purchase items. Cookies may also be used by our affiliates or advertisers. Orleans Coffee encourages anyone who uses cookies to follow appropriate privacy standards and policies, but is not responsible for cookies placed by third parties.

Children's privacy online


At Orleans Coffee, we understand that children's privacy is important. Except in connection with surveys and contests, we do not monitor the age of our user audience. However, if you are under age 13, you should not submit personal identifying information to Orleans Coffee without the consent of your parent or guardian. If you are a parent and want to limit your children's access to material you believe may be harmful to them, you may want to look into commercially available hardware, software and filtering devices. If you are interested in learning about these protections, information is available at http://www.worldvillage.com/wv/school/html/control.htm and other similar sites.
