Dear Visitor,

Blue Candybox does not sell or give any personally identifiable information about our customers and visitors to any third party.

Blue Candybox has a strong commitment to providing excellent service to all of our customers and visitors of this web site, including respecting your concerns about privacy. We understand that you may have questions about how this web site collects and uses the information that you provide to us. We have prepared this statement (“Statement”) to inform you of the privacy principles that govern this web site.

Visitors who browse this web site do so on an anonymous basis. When you visit our website at bluecandybox.com, we will not collect any personally identifiable information about you (such as your name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address), unless you specifically provide such information. We may then store such information and use such information to contact you directly regarding products and information we believe may be of interest to you.

Information collected on this web site is covered by this privacy statement, and is generally processed and stored in the United States. We treat the information you provide to us as confidential information; it is, accordingly, subject to our company’s security procedures and policies regarding protection and use of confidential information.

This policy may change from time to time so please check back periodically. Blue Candybox is only responsible for the privacy statement and content of this web site. Third party Internet sites and services accessible through Blue Candybox have separate privacy and data collection practices, independent of us. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the use of cookies on web sites that you have accessed this web site from and to the non-Blue Candybox web sites that you may access from this web site. Blue Candybox has no responsibility or liability for these independent policies or actions. Please be careful and responsible online. If you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. While we strive to protect your information, Blue Candybox cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information through the transmission process and you do so at your own risk.
