Information Automatically Collected About Our Visitors
As a visitor to Candy Dynamics’ web site, you are anonymous to the company. Like many other commercial web sites, Candy Dynamics may use a standard technology called a “cookie” that measures the number of visitors to the different sections of the web site. Cookies are designed, generally, to collect and store the name of the domain from which you access the Internet, the date and time you access Candy Dynamics’ site, and the Internet address of the web site from which you linked directly to Candy Dynamics’ site. Candy Dynamics uses the information collected by cookies to improve its site and make it more useful to visitors. Candy Dynamics’ cookies do not collect personal information.
If your prefer not to receive cookies on this site, you can set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies and refuse the cookie when your browser alerts you to its presence. You can also refuse all cookies by turning them off in your browser (see the “Help” portion of your browser). You do not need to have cookies turned on to use any area of this site. However, cookies allow you to take full advantage of the services provided by our site, and we recommend that you leave them turned on.
We only collect personally identifiable data, such as names, addresses, e-mail addresses, preference information, when visitors voluntarily choose to submit personal information to enter contests, submit a comment, or to place an order.

Providing personal information is up to you, our visitor. We collect personally identifiable information to enter you in contests and notify you of results.

Is credit card/transaction information secure?
We understand that financial information is especially sensitive and that you may have concerns about sharing personal information with us. We believe you should control the amount of information we receive about you.
We use state-of-the-art technology to protect your data from unauthorized third parties within our shopping cart. Currently, Candy Dynamics uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) within its shopping cart to protect your data and secure your transactions. SSL encrypts all your personal information, including your credit card number, name and address as it is transmitted over the Internet.
Sharing of Your Personal Information
Candy Dynamics does not sell or otherwise share any customer information with marketers outside Candy Dynamics who may want to offer you their own products and services. However, Candy Dynamics may give such information to other companies or individuals to perform functions on our behalf. These companies or individuals may include: Fulfillment Centers, Credit Card Companies, Web Designers, and Shipping Companies.
We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but are not permitted to use it for other purposes.
As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy assets. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the unlikely event that Candy Dynamics and/or substantially all of its assets are acquired by another business, customer information will be one of the transferred assets.
Protection of Candy Dynamics and Others
We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with law; enforce or apply related agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Candy Dynamics, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
How can I choose not to provide information to Candy Dynamics?
Candy Dynamics recognizes the importance of safeguarding the privacy of children on the Internet. As such, we have developed the following policy for the online collection, use, and disclosure of personal information from children under the age of 13. We recommend that parents explore our Site with their children and that they remind them to seek parental consent before submitting any contests entry forms to Candy Dynamics.
Non-Personal Information, Personal Information & Browsing the Site
Children can surf our site, view content, and play games without providing any personal information such as name or email addresses. The only section within our website where we collect and store personal information is within the member section entitled “Club House”. Within this section we do not allow children under the age of 13 to become members; as such, we require the person registering for this section to check off that they are 13 years or older. Again, we highly advise parents to monitor children under the age of 13 while on this site to ensure that they are not signing up for this section under false pretense.
If you are a parent that has given us permission to collect and store your child’s information (via completion of Parental Consent Forms for online sweepstakes/contests), you can do the following at any time:
- Discontinue further use of your child’s personal information (i.e. unsubscribe). To do so, please contact us at (888) 400-7606 and ask to speak with the Website Department.
- Request that we delete your child’s personal information by following procedure #1 above. Unsubscribing your child will delete his/her personally identifiable information from our records.
