Village Kitchen Dairy Bar, commitment to your privacy
This site is owned and operated by The Village Kitchen & Dairy Bar. Your privacy on the Internet is of the utmost importance to us. At The Village Kitchen & Dairy Bar, we want to make your online experience satisfying and safe.
Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we feel you should fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.
Definition of the Information villagekitchendairybar.com gathers and track.
Our website gathers two types of information about users:
Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. These are voluntary submissions to receive villagekitchendairybar.com news updates and promotional information through email and social media, or to participate in any of our promotional events.
Information our website gathers through aggregated tracking information derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our site.Under no circumstances does villagekitchendairybar.com divulge any information about an individual user to a third party.
We offer the following free services, which require some type of voluntary submission of personal information by users:
1. Electronic messaging
Through social media, The Village Kitchen & Dairy Bar gathers the email addresses of users who voluntarily subscribe. Users may remove themselves from this service by following the link provided or by submitting a request email
2. "E-mail this to a friend" Service
Our site users can choose to electronically forward a link, page, or document to someone else by clicking "e-mail this to a friend". The user must provide their email address, as well as that of the recipient. This information is used only in the case of transmission errors and, of course, to let the recipient know who sent the email. The information is not used for any other purpose.
We may offer interactive polls to users, so they can easily share their opinions with other users and see what our audience thinks about important issues. Opinions or other responses to polls are aggregated and are not identifiable to any particular user. villagekitchendairybar.com may use a system to "tag" users after they have voted, so they can vote only once on a particular question. This tag is not correlated with information about individual users.
The Village Kitchen & Dairy Bar may occasionally conduct user surveys to target our content to our audience better. We sometimes share the aggregated demographic information in these surveys with our sponsors, advertisers and partners. We never share any of this information about specific individuals with any third party.
The Village Kitchen & Dairy Bar tracks user traffic patterns throughout our site. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. The Village Kitchen & Dairy Bar does break down overall usage statistics according to a user's domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user's browser).
The Village Kitchen & Dairy Bar sometimes tracks and catalogues the search terms that users enter in our Search function, but this tracking is never associated with individual users. We use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don't like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.
Use of information
The Village Kitchen & Dairy Bar uses any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience in our network of sites, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the sites or to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users.
As stated above, we use information that users voluntarily provide in order to send out electronic newsletters and to enable users to participate in polls and surveys. We send out newsletters to subscribers on a regular schedule (depending on the newsletter), and occasionally send out special editions when we think subscribers might be particularly interested in something we are doing. The Village Kitchen & Dairy Bar never shares newsletter mailing lists with any third parties, including advertisers, sponsors or partners.

The Village Kitchen & Dairy Bar creates aggregate reports on user demographics and traffic patterns for advertisers, sponsors, and partners. This allows our advertisers to advertise more effectively and allows our users to receive advertisements that are pertinent to their needs. Because we don't track the usage patterns of individual users, an advertiser or sponsor will never know that a specific user clicked their ad. We will not disclose any information about any individual user except to comply with applicable law or valid legal processes, or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.
Sharing of the information
The Village Kitchen & Dairy Bar uses the above-described information to tailor our content to suit your needs and help our advertisers better understand our audience's demographics. This is essential to keeping our service free. We will not share information about individual users with any third party except to comply with applicable laws or valid legal processes, or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.
The Village Kitchen & Dairy Bar operates secure data networks protected by industry-standard firewalls and password protection systems.
