SmartCup Privacy Program

This is SmartCup’s Internet Privacy Statement. This privacy statement discloses the privacy practices for SmartCup and all of SmartCup asocated websites and domains.

Information Collection and Use
SmartCup collects information from users of this site and, in general, we will only use the information you provide to us for the purpose for which such information was provided. SmartCup does not sell, share, or rent the information collected from this site to others in ways other than those outlined in this statement. SmartCup may collect information from our users at several different points on our Web site. Use of personal information provided by users will include the use by SmartCup to improve the site, to provide a more personalized experience for the user and will be used in anonymous or statistical form for research and reporting purposes, but information which identifies a specific individual will not be disclosed to others without the user’s permission unless necessary to provide services which the user has requested. Non-personal demographic and profile data may be used to tailor your experience at our site, and may also be shared with our partners and other entities on an aggregate non-personal basis.

Cookies
Cookies are not used within the SmartCup web site.

Log Files
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track users’ movement, and gather broad information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

Links
This Web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that the SmartCup is not responsible for the privacy practices of such sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of every Web site linked to this site. The SmartCup privacy statement applies solely to information collected by the SmartCup Web site.

Surveys
From time to time our site requests information from users via surveys. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include demographic information (such as name and shipping address, zip code, or age level). Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site, to provide services to the users of this site and will be used in anonymous or statistical form for research and reporting purposes.

Security
Our site has industry standard security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. While there is no such thing as “perfect security” on the Internet, we will take all reasonable steps to insure the safety of your personal information.

Notification of Changes
If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post changes on our home page so our users are advised of the information we collect, the ways we use it, and any circumstances under which we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users in a reasonable manner, which may include email.
