Chef Kat has created this privacy statement in order to describe her policy on privacy. The following discloses the information gathering and dissemination practices for the Chef Kat Website. Your use of the Chef Kat Website acknowledges your acceptance and consent to the practices described in this privacy statement.

Information Automatically Logged
We receive and store certain information whenever you visit our Web site. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our Web site, and to help identify you. Your IP address is also used to gather broad demographic information and for other purposes. Any information you voluntarily provide to us is used for such purposes as customizing your shopping experience, allowing us to respond to your requests, and improving our Web site. Chef Kat reserves the right to perform statistical analyses of user behavior and characteristics in order to measure interest in and use of the various areas of the site and to inform advertisers of such information as well as the number of users that have been exposed to or clicked on their advertising banners. Chef Kat will provide only aggregated data from these analyses to third parties. Also, users should be aware that Chef Kat may sometimes permit third parties to offer subscription and/or registration-based services through the Chef Kat site. Chef Kat is not responsible for any actions or policies of such third parties, and users should check the applicable privacy policy of such party when providing personally identifiable information.

Users also should be aware that non-personal information and data may be automatically collected through the standard operation of Chef Kat's Internet servers or through the use of "cookies". Cookies are small text files a Web site can use to recognize repeat users, facilitate the user's ongoing access to and use of the site and allow a site to track usage behavior and compile aggregate data that will allow content improvements and targeted advertising. Cookies are not programs that come onto a user's system and damage files. Generally, cookies work by assigning a unique number to the user that has no meaning outside the assigning site. Users should be aware that Chef Kat cannot control the use of cookies or the resulting information by advertisers or third parties hosting data for Chef Kat. If a user does not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows the user to deny or accept the cookie feature; however, users should note that cookies may be necessary to provide the user with certain features (e.g., customized delivery of information) available on the Chef Kat Site.

Registration Forms
Our site's registration form may require users to give us contact information (like their name, email and postal address), unique identifiers (like their social security number), and demographic information (like their zip code, age or income level).

Contact information from the registration forms is used to provide information about our company. The customer's contact information is also used to get in touch with the customer when necessary.

Demographic and profile data is also collected at our site. We use this data to tailor our visitors' experience at our site showing them content that we think they might be interested in and displaying the content according to their preferences. This data is not available for sale to any outside entity.

Additionally, users should be aware that when they voluntarily disclose personally identifiable information (e.g., user name, email address) on non-secure areas of the Chef Kat site, that information, along with any substantive information disclosed in the users' communication, can be collected and correlated and used by third parties and may result in unsolicited messages from other posters or third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of Chef Kat.

We work closely with our affiliates, and in some cases we offer services or products jointly with these affiliates. When you purchase products or services that are provided jointly by Chef Kat and one of her affiliates, we share our customer information with that affiliate with respect to your purchase.

We also employ agents to fulfill other functions on our behalf, such as providing marketing assistance, analyzing data, preparing and maintaining site content, processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. These agents have access to customer information as required in order to help them perform their functions on our behalf, but they are not allowed to use that information for any other purpose.

Customer information is a valuable business asset. If for any reason Chef Kat transfers or divests herself of her business assets, our customer information will be transferred as one of the business assets.

Also, upon a user's request, Chef Kat will use commercially reasonable efforts to functionally delete the user and his or her personal information from her database; however, it may be impossible to delete a user's entry without some residual information because of backups and records of deletions.
