Privacy Policy

Last Updated: July 1, 2013

At Local Goodness LLC, we value and protect your personal information and are committed to our customers' privacy - we take that responsibility seriously. Local Goodness owns information collected on these sites and will never sell or rent this information. We will not share it in ways different from what is described in this statement unless you authorize us to do so.

Types of tracking technologies

Like many, we use a variety of technologies to help us better understand how you use our sites and how we can improve your experience.

IP addresses:  We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and provide a more personalized experience for you. Your IP address is used to help identify you and your shopping cart and gather general demographic information. 

Browser Cookies:  We use cookies to keep track of your shopping cart and for other purposes like personalizing the sites. Cookies are a small piece of information stored by your Internet browser to your computer's hard drive. You can configure your browser’s settings to accept or reject cookies. If you set your browser to reject cookies, the sites will not be able to recognize your cart, your account, or any personalization. We do not and cannot use cookies to gather your confidential information that may be stored on your hard drive. 

Clear gifs, Web beacons, Web bugs:  We use these tiny graphics, that are about the size of a pencil point, as a means to deliver us cookies in order to determine whether and how many times our web pages have been browsed.  We do not tie the information gathered by clear gifs to your personally identifiable information. 

Flash cookies, local shared objects (LSO’s):  Flash cookies are used to collect and store information but differ from browser cookies in the amount, type and manner in which data is stored.  We do not tie the information gathered by Flash cookies to your personally identifiable information.

External Links

These sites contain links to other websites. Local Goodness is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of other sites.

Your Personal Information

Our sites use forms for you to request information, products and services. We collect your contact information, including, but not limited to, addresses, email addresses, phone numbers, and financial information. Collected information is used for the benefit of Local Goodness to send information to supplier partners and customers about orders, to fulfill orders, to process and collect payments, to send promotional marketing material about our company and supplier partners, and to contact customers about orders when necessary. Demographic and profile data is also collected at our sites. We use this data to tailor your experiences at our sites, to show you content that we think you might be interested in, and to display the content according to your preferences.

Third-Party Service Providers

We, and our supplier partners, employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, providing marketing assistance such as tailoring content on our sites, providing search results and links, and processing credit card payments. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.

Customer information is considered to be an asset of Local Goodness LLC and as such may be transferred to another company as part of an acquisition of Local Goodness.

Information Security

We have instituted reasonable safeguards to help ensure that information collected is secure. We also take reasonable steps to ensure that third parties who work with us to make the sites (including the software, applications and services provided on the sites) available to you agree to protect personal information that they must access in order to serve you and to honor your preferences about contacts you receive.

When you send or otherwise transmit your sensitive information (such as your credit card number) to or though the sites, your sensitive information is encrypted and protected with SSL, the current industry-standard encryption protocol. When you are on an SSL-protected page, a picture of a closed lock appears at the bottom or top of some web browsers. Another way to tell if you are on a secure page is to check the URL or address of the page. (Look in the address box or right-click on the page and select "Properties".) These secure SSL-encrypted pages have URLs that start with "https://" instead of "http://".

Please understand, however, that it is possible for third parties to access information despite our efforts. Without limiting the terms of our Terms of Use and Privacy Policy, you understand that we do not guarantee that your use of the sites and/or information provided by you will be private or secure and we are not responsible or liable to you for any lack of privacy or security you may experience. You are fully responsible for taking precautions and providing security measures best suited for your situation and intended use of the sites. You also understand that any information provided by you or collected by us, or our agents, in connection with your use of the sites will be used in the manner described in our Terms of Use. 

Please do not use the sites if you do not agree to the terms and conditions described in this Information Security section.

If you have any questions about security of the sites, please email us at: info@localgoodness.com.
