Your Privacy is Important to Us.
Chocosphere has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this site.
The Information We Collect
Our site uses an order form for customers to request information, products, and services. We collect contact information from our customers (like their e‑mail address) and financial information (like credit card numbers). Contact information you provide on the order form is used to process and ship your order. We may also use your contact information to contact you as necessary to process your order and to inform you of special opportunities to purchase from Chocosphere. Financial information that is collected is used to bill you for products and services. We may provide your e‑mail address to the shipping company that is delivering an order to you only as needed to facilitate communication about your shipment. Also, should all or part of Chocosphere's business be sold, information may be disclosed to the purchaser as a part of the sale. Chocosphere does not sell customer information, nor does it give out customer information except as stated above or as necessary to process orders or as required by government regulatory agencies, by law, or by court order.
When contacting us by e-mail or ordering using our web site, please be sure that the e-mail address and other contact information entered belongs to you. If you enter an e-mail address or contact information belonging to someone else, it is possible that your information will be disclosed to that party and Chocosphere is not responsible for the consequences of such disclosure.
If you want to send an anonymous gift, please read this: We presume that your intentions are good. However, as a result of heightened security due to the September 11th attacks, we can no longer send anonymous gifts. Any package with the "Ship To" party different than the "Bill To" party will have the name of the "Bill To" party shown in the return address area of the shipping label. Should the recipient of a gift contact us to request the identity of the giver, we will disclose identity information. Of course, credit card information and other similar sensitive information will be kept confidential. Thank you for your understanding.
