Collection in the manner specified in this Privacy Statement. This Statement may change
periodically, so please check back from time to time. For your information, the date of the

|1. WHAT INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE THAT INFORMATION Top|
Kitchen Collection does not collect any personally identifiable information from you
(e.g., name, address, telephone number, e-mail address) unless you voluntarily choose to
disclose such information. We will not sell, trade or rent your personally identifiable
information to third parties. Your information may be used for research on usage patterns,
product development, online site customization and targeted marketing. Your information may
be kept or purged, at Kitchen Collection's election.
Processing Your Order: Whenever you shop through one of our on-line retail stores (e.g., KitchenCollection.com), we obtain from you the information we need to process your order. This information includes, for example, your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, etc. If you use a credit or debit card, or pay by check, it will include your account number. We use the information we collect about you to process your order and to provide a more personalized shopping experience. We may also use it to tell you about changes in our products or services, or about special offers we think you will find valuable. If you would prefer to not receive this information, you will be given the option to decline it when your account is created.
Customer Registration : Registering with Kitchen Collection is purely your own choice and is not a requirement for you to enjoy the many features offered by the Web Site. When you register with Kitchen Collection, you create a "User ID" of your choice and choose a secret password. We then ask you for background information, such as your name, current e-mail address, address, zip code and telephone number. Once you register with Kitchen Collection, you are no longer anonymous to us, and Kitchen Collection can use your information to provide you with valuable notifications of sales and discounts on our products.
Newsletter Registration: When you register to receive Kitchen Collection's newsletter, we collect information about you, including your name and e-mail address. Personally identifiable information collected during the newsletter registration process will be used to provide you with Kitchen Collection's newsletter. The information that you submit will be shared with a trusted third party, who will provide you with our newsletter.
Co-Branded Services: Some Kitchen Collection services are offered in conjunction with a partner company. These are called co-branded services. In order to provide these co-branded services to you, it is necessary for us to share information with our partner company. If data is being collected and/or maintained by any company other than our partner companies, you will be notified prior to the time of the data collection or transfer. If you do not want your data to be shared, you can choose not to allow the transfer by not using that particular service.
Aggregate Information: We collect non-personal information about our customers, and aggregate this statistical information in order to improve our Web Site. When we say that we may share such information in "aggregate" form, we mean that we will not disclose individual names, addresses, telephone numbers and e-mail addresses unless we have your permission. External companies may be provided aggregate information about our customers.
Use of IP Addresses: An Internet Protocol ("IP") address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web. Web servers automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When visitors request pages from the Web Site, our servers log the guests' IP addresses. We do not normally link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that a visitor's session will be logged, but the visitor remains anonymous to us. Kitchen Collection collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration and to audit the use of this Web Site. We also use IP addresses to collect statistical information to send to our advertisers and for other marketing and promotional purposes.
Information from Children: Kitchen Collection does not direct its Web Site to children under thirteen (13) years of age. Individuals under eighteen (18) should consult with their parent or guardian about the use of this Web Site for their benefit.
Monitoring, Enforcement and Legal Requests: Kitchen Collection has no obligation to monitor the Web Site or the use of the Web Site, or to retain the content of any user session. However, Kitchen Collection reserves the right at all times to monitor, review, retain, and/or disclose any information as necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request or to cooperate with law enforcement and other authorities in investigating a claim of illegal activity. We may use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to protect our service, Web Site, customers, or others.
Change of Ownership or Control: In the event that Kitchen Collection becomes owned or controlled by other individuals or entities, the information we have collected may be transferred to such party or parties. In this case, such individuals or entities will follow this Privacy Statement in the place of Kitchen Collection's current owners.
Other Sites: Except as otherwise expressly discussed in this Privacy Statement, this Statement only addresses Kitchen Collection's use and disclosure of information we collect from you. To the extent that you disclose personal information to other sites, you are subject to the privacy customs and policies of these other sites. We encourage you to ask questions before you disclose any personal information.
Advertisements: This Web Site provides advertisements to its users. By clicking on an ad, you may be linking to a third party Web Site that is not controlled by Kitchen Collection, and may have different information gathering practices than Kitchen Collection.
Public Forums: You understand that any information that you divulge in the public areas of this Web Site, including any chat rooms, is public information and is not kept confidential by Kitchen Collection. Please use discretion when posting information to the public areas of this and any other Web Site.
2. HOW WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION Top
Transmission Errors or Unauthorized Acts: Unfortunately, no data transmission over the
Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your
personal information, Kitchen Collection cannot ensure or warrant the security of any
information you transmit to us or any information provided by our on-line products or services,
and you do so at your own risk. Kitchen Collection will not be liable for disclosures of your
personal information due to errors in transmission or unauthorized acts of third parties.
However, once we receive your transmission, we do our best to ensure its security on our
systems by making reasonable efforts to protect the information.
Security: Any information provided to Kitchen Collection is treated with care and discretion. When information is shared, Kitchen Collection will take a proactive approach to ensure the information is kept private and not misused.
Passwords: If you register, your customer account and personal information is password protected. However, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password. Therefore, we recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. We will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited e-mail. Also, remember to log out when you have finished using our Web Site.
Encryption: When you submit personal information to Kitchen Collection, we encrypt it using SSL 3.0, RC4 with 128 bit encryption (high); RSA with 1024 bit exchange, an encryption software program. Encryption is the industry standard means to protect information as it passes over the Web to our server. We use care to protect this information against unauthorized access and modification once it is stored on our database.
