The Site is not intended for or directed to persons under the age of 18, and we will not knowingly collect information from persons under 18. To provide information to us through registration or in any other manner on the Site, you must be 18 years of age or older.
What Personal Data We Collect and What Does Cafilia Do with It
Cafilia will only collect Personal Information that you voluntarily provide to us or our service providers. The Personal Information we may collect includes, among other things, your name, mailing address, e-mail address, telephone number, payment information and your interest in specific types of products and/or services. You may also voluntarily provide Personal Information when you choose to engage in the following activities:
- purchase a supplier or buyer membership;
- purchase a product or service;
- request information;
- participate in a survey;
- interact with our social media pages;
- subscribe to one of our newsletters;
- participate in other activities offered by Cafilia that require your Personal Information; or
- post content where permitted on our website or our other online locations.
You may also choose to post or upload additional information, such as comments, reviews, photos or other content (“User Content”) to publicly available portions of the Services. User Content you post on a public forum or make publicly available will be available to other users of the Website and may be retrievable by third party search engines. Third parties may also be able to download or share your User Content to social media sites such as Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Google+, as well as via email. We recommend that you guard your privacy and anonymity and not upload any User Content that you are not comfortable being available to the general public. Any third party with access to your information via the Services will be permitted to use the information in the same manner as if you submitted the information directly to that third party. Publicly posting any information on the Website is entirely voluntary on your part and we recommend you carefully consider the information you choose to make publicly available.
Like most website operators, Cafilia collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request when visitors use the Services. Cafilia’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Cafilia’s visitors use the Services. From time to time, Cafilia may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its Services. Cafilia also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to the Services. For instance, Cafilia may monitor the Services to help identify spam. We also may use these technologies to collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or other online services (behavioral tracking).
In addition to log data, we may also collect information about the device you’re using to access the Services, including the type of device, the operating system, device settings, device identifiers and crash data. Whether we collect some or all of this information often depends on what type of device you’re using and its settings. To learn more about the information your device makes available to us, please review the policies of your device manufacturer or software provider.
We do not collect personal information automatically, but we may tie this information to personal information about you that we collect from other sources or you provide to us.
Cookies & Other Tracking Technology
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your hard disk or to your browser’s memory when you visit one of our Sites. Cookies are useful because they help arrange the content and layout of our Sites and allow us to recognize those computers or other devices that have been to our Sites before. Cookies do many different jobs, such as allowing our Sites to remember your preference settings and helping us to enhance the usability and performance of our Sites and your experience using them. Our Sites also may contain electronic images known as web beacons – sometimes called single-pixel gifs – that allow us to count the number of users who have visited specific pages. We may also include web beacons in promotional e-mail messages or newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon.
We also may use Google cookies for analytics and marketing purposes. You can opt-out of Google tracking through Google Ads Settings, Ad Settings for mobile apps, or Google also provides a Google Analytics opt-out plug-in for the web.
How We Use your Data
We use the information we collect to provide you full access and functionality of the Services. Accordingly, your information may be used for the following purposes: (i) to provide and improve our services, features and content; (ii) to administer your use of our services and accounts; (iii) to enable users to enjoy and easily navigate the Services; (iv) to better understand your needs and interests; (v) to fulfill requests or to respond to questions or comments you may make; (vi) to personalize your experience; (vii) to provide you with announcements, notifications and advertisements related to your interests and use of the Services and other communications such as electronic newsletters, promotional e-mails or similar messaging; (viii) to provide service announcements; (ix) to protect against users seeking to hack into the Services; (x) to assess the level of general interest in the Services and (xi) for any other purpose with your consent.
Who We Share Your Data With
Cafilia may share Personal Information with certain third parties such as our agents, service providers and other representatives acting on our behalf. The third parties with whom we conduct business are authorized to use your information only to perform the service for which they are hired. They are required to abide by the terms of our Privacy Notice including taking reasonable measures to ensure your personal information is secure. On occasion, we contract with trusted third-party providers who would receive your Personal Information and conduct anonymized aggregate analyses of the data. Through our contractual arrangements, we require our contracting partners to maintain adequate security of Personal Information provided to them. We do not permit such third parties to sell your Personal Information to other third parties.
Other Ways We Disclose your Information
We may disclose non-personally identifiable aggregated information about our users without restriction.
Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations or as described above, we disclose personally-identifying only when required to do so by law, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Cafilia, third parties or the public at large. If you send us a request (for example via chat, a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users.
In addition, in some cases we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Moreover, if Cafilia or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Cafilia goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Cafilia may continue to use your personal and non-personal information only as set forth in this policy. Otherwise, we will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone.
We may also disclose your personally-identifying information if you expressly consent to the disclosure.
We are committed to protecting your Personal Information. We regularly test our facilities and use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure.
Your Rights and Responsibilities
You are permitted, and hereby agree, to only provide personal information to Cafilia if such personal information is accurate, reliable, and relevant to our relationship and only to the extent such disclosure will not violate any applicable data protection law, statute, or regulation.
You may have certain rights under applicable data protection law with respect to personal information about you that is collected through the Services or when you contact or otherwise engage with us. To exercise any of these data privacy rights, please contact us, or have your authorized agent contact us, in accordance with the “Contact Us” section listed below. In the event you submit, or your authorized agent submits on your behalf, a data request, you (and your authorized agent) hereby acknowledge and agree, under penalty of perjury, that you are (or the authorized agent of) the consumer whose personal information is the subject of the request. We will respond to any data requests within the timeframes required by law, and we may charge a fee to facilitate your request where permitted by law.
You have the right to opt-out of receiving electronic direct marketing communications from us. All electronic direct marketing communications that you may receive from us, such as e-mail messages, will give you an option of not receiving such communications from us in the future.
Do Not Track
Some web browsers may transmit “do-not-track” signals to the Sites with which the user communicates. Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they even are aware of them. We currently do not take action in response to these signals.
California Privacy Rights
California Civil Code Section § 1798.83 permits users of the Sites that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. Pursuant to the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, as amended (“CCPA”), California residents may have certain data privacy rights, such as the right to be notified about what personal information categories are collected about you, and our intended use and purpose for collecting your personal information. You have the right to request access to your personal information and, to the extent feasible, request that it be transmitted in certain forms and formats. You may have the right to request that we (and any applicable service provider) delete your personal information. You have the right not to be subject to discrimination for asserting your rights under the CCPA. If you make, or an authorized agent on your behalf makes, any request related to your personal information, Cafilia will ascertain your identity to the degree of certainty required under the CCPA before addressing your request. Cafilia may require you to match at least three pieces of personal information we have previously collected from you before granting you access or otherwise responding to your request.
Nevada Privacy Disclaimer
Pursuant to Nevada law, a Nevada “consumer” (as the term is defined therein), may, at any time, submit a verified request through a designated request address to an “operator” directing the operator not to make any sale of his or her personal information that the operator has collected or will collect about the consumer. For clarity purposes, Cafilia does not sell or exchange your personal information for monetary consideration to a third party for the third party to license or sell the information to additional persons or parties.
Links to Third Party Websites
We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third-party sites or services.
We may occasionally update this Privacy Statement. When we do, we will revise the “last updated” date at the top of the Privacy Statement and take such additional steps as may be required by law.
If you have questions regarding this Privacy Statement, our handling of your personal information, or would like to request more information or exercise a data right, please contact us by email at: [email protected].
