What Information Do We Collect?
We collect information from you when you subscribe to our email newsletter, when you place an order, comment on our blog, or fill out any digital form.
When registering or ordering on our website, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter the following: your full name, email address, mailing address, phone number or credit card information. You may, however, visit and browser our site anonymously excluding those portions of the site available only to members.
How Do We Gather Information From Our Visitors?
How we collect and store information depends on the page you are visiting, the activities in which you elect to participate and the services provided. For example, you may be asked to provide information when you register for access to certain portions of our site or request certain features, such as newsletters or when you purchase a membership, product, or service. You may provide information when you register or participate in sweepstakes and contests, blogs, message boards, forums, and chat rooms, and other interactive areas of our site.
Like all Web sites, ChocolateDiet.com also collects information automatically and through the use of electronic tools that may be transparent to our visitors. For example, we may log the name of your Internet Service Provider, IP address, and use cookie technology to recognize you and hold information from your visit. Among other things, the cookie may store your user name and password, sparing you from having to re-enter that information each time you visit, or may control the number of times you encounter a particular advertisement while visiting our site. As we adopt additional new technology, we may also gather information through other means. In certain cases, you can choose not to provide us with information, for example by setting your browser to refuse to accept cookies, but if you do you may be unable to access certain portions of the site or may be asked to re-enter your user name and password, and we may not be able to customize the site’s features according to your preferences.
What Do We Do With The Information We Collect?
Chocolate Diet collects information to enhance your web experience and deliver more individualized content and advertising.
Aggregated Information (information that does not personally identify you) may be used in many ways. For example, we may combine information about your usage patterns with similar information obtained from other users to help enhance our site and services. Aggregated Information may occasionally be shared with our advertisers and business partners. This information does not include any Personally Identifiable Information about you or allow anyone to identify you.
Personally Identifiable Information collected by ChocolateDiet.com may also be used for other purposes, including but not limited to site administration, troubleshooting, processing of e-commerce transactions, administration of sweepstakes and contests, and other communications with you.
Certain third parties who provide technical support for the operation of our site may have access to such information in the performance of their duties. We will use your information only as permitted by law. In addition, from time to time as we continue to develop our business, we may sell, buy, merge or partner with other companies or businesses. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets.
Do We Disclose Any Information to Outside Parties?

This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential.
We may also disclose your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, assist law enforcement authorities, in response to a court order, enforce our site policies, in connection with the collection of amounts you may owe to us, or protect our or others rights, property, or safety. Please note we may not provide you with notice prior to disclosure in such unique cases. However, aggregated information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
