Computer Tracking and Cookies

Our web site is not set up to track, collect or distribute personal information not voluntarily entered by visitors. Our site logs do generate certain kinds of non-identifying site usage data, such as the number of hits and visits to our site. This information is used for internal purposes by our technical support staff to analyze trends and provide better services to our customers, but these statistics contain no personal information and cannot be used to gather such information.

A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a Web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. The Little Chickadee shopping cart uses "session" cookies to keep track of items you've added to your cart.  They expire when you leave the site.  We also provide an opt-in cookie to allow us to pre-populate your order form with your name, address and phone number the next time you place an order.  At the time of your order, you are asked if you would like this cookie written to your computer.  Our cookies do not generate personal data, do not read personal data from your machine and are never tied to anything else that could be used to identify you.

With respect to Ad Servers: To try and bring you offers that are of interest to you, we have relationships with other companies that we allow to place ads on our Web pages.  Ad server companies may collect information such as your domain type, your IP address and clickstream information, but only as a result of clicking on an ad which links to their site. It is not collected merely by using The Little Chickadee website.  The collection, use, and disclosure of information by those advertisers are subject to their respective privacy policies, which may differ from The Little Chickadee's Privacy Policy.  For further information, consult the privacy policies of those advertisers.

With respect to links to other websites: To try and bring you information that is of interest to you, we have placed links to other websites from our site.  The collection, use, and disclosure of information by those other websites are subject to their respective privacy policies, which may differ from The Little Chickadee's Privacy Policy.  For further information, consult the privacy policies of those websites.
