Your privacy on the Internet is important to us. As part of the operation and customization feature of Sonoma Creamery website (“sonomacreamery.com”), we gather certain types of information from users, and we would like to explain the types of information we gather, what we do with them, and how to correct or change the information.
WE MAY COLLECT THE FOLLOWING TYPES OF INFORMATION

We may record this basic information about visits to our website to improve the customer experience, usability and website content.
Sonoma Creamery’s website may use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. You may change your browser settings to have your browser notify you when you receive a new cookie or to refuse to accept cookies. If you decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of Sonoma Creamery’s services or websites you visit.
Do Not Track is a privacy preference that users can set in their web browsers. When you turn on the Do Not Track signal, your browser sends a message to web sites that you visit requesting that these sites not track the user. Sonoma Creamery will honor the do-not-track settings of our customers.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Sonoma Creamery’s pages, or register with Sonoma Creamery’s sites or services, a cookie helps Sonoma Creamery to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. When you return to the same website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the features that you customized.
