The Candy Jar is an online candy shop site built on WordPress platform. It is The Candy Jar’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website(s).
Like most website operators, The Candy Jar 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. The Candy Jar’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how The Candy Jar’s visitors use its website and what information is relevant for the visitors. From time to time, The Candy Jar may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
The Candy Jar also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. The Candy Jar only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to The Candy Jar’s websites choose to interact with The Candy Jar in ways that require The Candy Jar to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that The Candy Jar gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our site to provide a username and email address.

We collect information from our customers in order to be able to deliver the requested service.

This information will be treated confidentially and will not be shared with third parties, unless this is needed for providing the service requested by the customers.
In each case, The Candy Jar collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with The Candy Jar. The Candy Jar does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
