We do not give out any information about our customers, nor do we sell or distribute any list of customers or customer information. Use of customer email address and phone number is limited to contacting customers in regards to order status issues. We have an opt-in mailing list that customers may sign up for during checkout. We use the mailing list to email newsletters occasionally regarding updates or new products. The newsletter has an opt-out link for customers wishing to no longer receive the newsletter mailings. Upon checkout, data is sent to various sites that Ciel Chocolatier uses for advertising (Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, etc.) in order to track any click-throughs that lead to sales. The only data transmitted is whether there was a sale or not. No customer information is transmitted.
