Personal Information Received Online:
We do not require any personal information from you to browse our website, including our Online Recipe Box. We do require your name, address, phone number, e-mail address and credit card information when you place an order. This information is for the purpose of confirming, shipping and charging your order. This information will only be used for our internal purposes. We will request a shipping address, if it is different from the billing address.

Your e-mail address will never be shared with any other individual or company. It is used by Gooseberry Patch to confirm your internet order, and share of Circle of Friends eLetters with you. By placing an order, you are added to our Circle of Friends email mailing list, unless you unsubscribe.

Children under the age of 18 please have a parent’s permission before placing an order or registering with us.

To sign up to receive Gooseberry Patch emails, all we require is your email address. So that we may provide you with additional services and interesting and relevant content, we may also request additional information such as your name, birth date, telephone number, or zip code. Gooseberry Patch does not collect any personally identifiable information that you do not expressly provide.

Non-personal Information:
We may also request non-personally identifiable information, such as annual income, shopping preferences or actual age. This information is known as demographic and profile data, and is 100% optional. If you choose to share it, this data may be used to improve our site and/or tailor your experience, by delivering you content that we think might be of interest to you and displaying it according to your preferences. We may share this information with others, such as advertisers interested in Gooseberry Patch, but never on a personal level. This information would only be shared in aggregate, anonymous form, such as letting an advertiser know the average age of an Gooseberry Patch reader. No third party will ever receive information from us that personally identifies you or any other person in any way.

Use of Cookies:
We use cookies to collect generic information, such as how you use our site and what you've collected in your shopping bag, so that we may be able to make our website better for our customers. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your hard drive that enables us to collect this information. Gooseberry Patch will never use cookies to retrieve information from your computer that is not related to our site or services.

Third-Party Cookies:
In the course of serving advertisements to this site, our third-party advertisers may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser. Again, the acceptance or refusal of these cookies is in most cases manageable via your web browser settings.

In our quest to bring you the most relevant, actionable content possible, Gooseberry Patch may create links allowing you to access third-party sites. Gooseberry Patch is not responsible for the content that appears on those sites and does not necessarily endorse these sites. Please consult those sites’ individual privacy policies in order to determine how they treat user information.

Third-Party Advertising:
Some of the ads appearing on our Web site may be delivered to you by our Web advertising partners. Information about your visit to a partner site or sites, such as the number of times you have viewed an ad (but not your name, address or any other personal information), is used to serve ads to you.

Legal Disclaimer:
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, Gooseberry Patch may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process.

Business Transitions:
In the event Gooseberry Patch goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of a portion of its assets, users’ personal information will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred.

Editorial Policy

JoAnn & Vickie’s favorite items are selected by them, our editorial staff and/or trusted contributors, although products and establishments cannot pay to be recommended by JoAnn & Vickie or Gooseberry Patch. When a product is chosen that directs you to another site Gooseberry Patch may receive a commission on your purchase. Our advertisers are featured in obvious positions on our website and emails. Your trust is important to us.

Occasionally we'll send you a dedicated email from one of our partners. These advertorials will be clearly marked in the subject line and by a note in the email. The content in these emails will be paid for by our partner, and may not reflect the opinions of the team here at Gooseberry Patch.

Most importantly, we will never sell or share your information or our subscriber list. Your e-mail address will never be shared with any other individual or company. It is used by Gooseberry Patch to confirm your internet order, and share our Circle of Friends emails with you.
