Pledge on Privacy
The term Personally Identifiable Information as used in this Policy refers to two categories of personal data: General Personally Identifiable Information and Sensitive Personally Identifiable Information. General Personally Identifiable Information includes first and last name, birth date, gender, e-mail address, mailing address, profession, education, or professional affiliations used to identify you. Sensitive Personally Identifiable Information includes all other levels of personal information including, but not limited to, religion, race, health status, political opinion, sexual preferences, income, social security number, credit card numbers, order history, or prescribing habits. Louisiana Cajun Stuff will only collect and use Personally Identifiable Information with your explicit permission.
Intended Use of Personal Data
Most of our services do not require any form of registration, allowing you to visit our site without telling us who you are. However, some services may require registration. When you register with us, you may need to complete certain fields (some are required and some are optional), as well as choose a user name and password. In these situations, if you choose to withhold any Personally Identifiable Information requested by us, it may not be possible for you to gain access to certain parts of the site and for us to respond to your query.
Anytime you provide Personally Identifiable Information to Louisiana Cajun Stuff, the company will tell you why the information is being requested and for what purpose it will be used. For example, we may collect and use Personally Identifiable Information to provide you with information regarding our products or services, to bill you for products and services you request, to market products and services which we think may be of interest to you, or to communicate with you for other purposes.
Louisiana Cajun Stuff may supplement the Personally Identifiable Information that you provide to us via any Louisiana Cajun Stuff website with information received from you from other sources, including other Louisiana Cajun Stuff websites.
You should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error-free. In particular, e-mail sent to or from this site may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail. Moreover, where you use passwords, ID numbers, or other special access features on this site, it is your responsibility to safeguard them. While we cannot guarantee against any loss, misuse or alteration to data, we try to prevent such unfortunate occurrences.
Anonymous Data and "Cookies"
Most of the information that Louisiana Cajun Stuff collects from its website(s) is anonymous information, such as the pages you visit and searches you perform. When you visit our website we do not collect any Personally Identifiable Information from you without your permission.
Anonymous information is used by us to help improve the content of the site and to compile aggregate statistics about individuals using our site for internal, market research purposes. In so doing, we may install "cookies" that collect the first level domain name of the user (e.g., "bigmail.com" from an e-mail address of "firstname.lastname@example.org") and the date and time of access. "Cookies" by themselves cannot be used to discover the specific identity of the user. A "cookie" is a small piece of information that is sent to your browser and stored on your computer's hard drive. Cookies do not damage your computer. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a "cookie"; this will enable you to decide if you want to accept it or not.
On occasion, we may use Internet tags (also known as action tags, single-pixel GIFs, clear GIFs, invisible GIFs and 1-by-1 GIFs) in combination with cookies at this site and may deploy these tags through a third-party advertising partner. These tags are placed on both online advertisements that bring users to the site and on different pages of the site. We use this technology to measure the visitors' responses to our sites and the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns (including how many times a page is opened and which information is consulted). The third-party partner may be able to collect anonymous aggregated data about visitors to other sites because of these Internet tags/cookies. Please be assured that we DO NOT collect or seek through these tags or cookies any personally identifiable information about our visitors, such as names, addresses, e-mail addresses or telephone numbers. If you would like more information about web tags and cookies associated with on-line advertising or to opt-out of third-party collection of anonymous information, please visit the Network Advertising Initiative website.
Louisiana Cajun Stuff does not condone "spamming." "Spamming" is sending unsolicited e-mails, usually of a commercial nature, in large numbers and repeatedly to individuals with whom the sender has had no previous contact or who have declined to receive such communications.
In contrast, where Louisiana Cajun Stuff believes that certain product, services, or other information is of importance to you -- and you have previously allowed your name and address to be used by Louisiana Cajun Stuff for such mailings - the Company reserves the right to inform you by e-mail.
Personal Information and Children
Louisiana Cajun Stuff will not knowingly collect, use or disclose Personally Identifiable Information from a minor under the age of 14, without obtaining prior consent from a person with parental responsibility (e.g., a parent or guardian) through direct off-line contact. We will provide the parent with (i) notice of the specific types of personally identifiable information being collected from the minor, and (ii) the opportunity to object to any further collection, use, or storage of such information. Louisiana Cajun Stuff abides by the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) in the U.S. and respects similar laws designed to protect children found in other countries.
