I may collect personal information from you such as your name or email address. For example, you may voluntarily submit information to the Website by leaving a comment, subscribing to my newsletters, providing information when ordering a product, responding to a survey, search queries using my search feature, or submitting a contact form.
I use information you provide to me to deliver the requested product, to improve my overall performance, and to provide you with offers, promotions, and information.
As you navigate through my Website, I may use automatic data collection technologies including Google Analytics to collect certain information about your equipment, browsing actions, and patterns. This will generally include information about your location, your traffic pattern through my website, and any communications between your computer and my Website. Among other things, I will collect data about the type of computer you use, your Internet connection, your IP address, your operating system, referring website, and your browser type. I may also collect information about actions you take when using the Website, such as links clicked.
The information I collect automatically is used for statistical data and will not include personal information. I use this data to improve my Website. This type of anonymous data may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses. Examples of this anonymous data may include analytics or information collected from cookies such as how many females use this Website or what country you are from.
Cookies and Pixels
My website utilizes a standard technology called “cookies” and server logs to collect information about how my Website is used. Information gathered through cookies and server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at my Website, and the websites visited before and just after my Website, as well as your IP address.
Cookies are small data files stored on your browser by the Website. When you visit a website, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it. I may use both session cookies, which expire when you close your browser, and persistent cookies, which stay on your browser until deleted, to provide you with a more personalized experience on the Website.
The Company reserves the right to use technological equivalents of cookies, including social media pixels. These pixels allow social media sites to track visitors to outside websites so as to tailor advertising messages users see while visiting that social media website. The Company reserves the right to use these pixels in compliance with the policies of the various social media sites.
Users may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies, by the Website, by using a corresponding setting of your internet browser and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. However, if users deactivate the setting of cookies in your Internet browser, not all functions of my Website may be entirely usable.
How Your Information May Be Used
I may use the information collected in the following ways:
- To operate and maintain the Website;
- To send you promotional information, such as newsletters. Each email promotion will provide information on how to opt-out of future mailings;
- To send you administrative communications, such as administrative emails, confirmation emails, technical notices, updates on policies, or security alerts;
- To respond to your comments or inquiries;
- To provide you with user support;
- To track and measure advertising on the Website;
- To protect, investigate, and deter against unauthorized or illegal activity.
As a general rule, I do not sell, rent, lease or otherwise transfer any information collected whether automatically or through your voluntary action.
I may disclose your personal information to a third party, including a lawyer or collection agency, when necessary to enforce my terms of service or any other agreement between you and the Company.
I may provide your information to any successor in interest in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of the Company’s asserts and/or business.
I may disclose information when legally compelled to do so, in other words, when I, in good faith, believe that the law requires it or for the protection of my legal rights or when compelled by a court or other governmental entity to do so.
Third-Party Use of Personal Information
I may share your information with third parties only when you explicitly authorize me to share your information.
You should consult the respective privacy policies of these third-party ad servers for more detailed information on their practices as well as for instructions about how to opt-out of certain practices. I do not control these third parties' tracking technologies or how they may be used.
The Website currently uses the following third-party service providers:
- Google Analytics – This service tracks Website usage and provides information such as referring websites and user actions on the Website. Google Analytics may capture your IP address, but no other personal information is captured by Google Analytics.
- Milotree- This service recommends Website social media accounts based on how you access the Website.
- In-telligent- This service allows me to send you notifications to your phone with your consent.
- Squarespace- This is the platform I use to build this Website. It collects anonymous information for statistical reasons such as how many viewers come to this Website as well as information about you when you leave a comment. Squarespace also provides my secure checkout.
At this time, your personal information is not shared with any other third-party applications. This list may be amended from time to time in the Website’s sole discretion.
Except when required by law, I will not sell, distribute, or reveal your email addresses or other personal information without your consent; however, I may disclose or transfer personal information collected through the Website to third parties who acquire all or a portion of my business, which may be the result of a merger, consolidation, or purchase of all or a portion of my assets, or in connection with any bankruptcy or reorganization proceeding brought by or against me.
Email Information and Policies
If you choose to correspond with me through email, I may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and my responses. I provide the same protections for these electronic communications that I employ in the maintenance of information received online. This also applies when you sign up through any of my forms using your email address or make a purchase on this Website.
I am committed to keeping your email address confidential. I do not sell, rent, or lease my subscription lists to third parties, and will not disclose your email address to any third parties.
In compliance with the CAN-SPAM Act, all emails sent from my Company will clearly state who the email is from and provide clear information on how to contact the sender, this Company. In addition, all email messages will also contain concise information on how to remove yourself from my mailing list so that you receive no further email communication from me.
If you no longer wish to receive my newsletter or promotional materials, you may opt-out of receiving these communications by clicking on the unsubscribe link in any newsletter email.
Affiliate Program Participation
The Website may engage in affiliate marketing, which is done by embedding tracking links into the Website. If you click on a link for an affiliate partnership, a cookie will be placed on your browser to track any sales for purposes of commissions.
Chicken Scratch n Sniff LLC is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and links to Amazon.com. As part of this Amazon Associates program, the Website will post customized links, provided by Amazon, to track the referrals to their website. This program utilizes cookies to track visits for the purposes of assigning commission on these sales.
You may subscribe to my newsletter on the Website, which may be used for advertising purposes. All newsletters sent may contain tracking pixels. The pixel is embedded in emails and allows an analysis of the success of online marketing campaigns. Because of these tracking pixels, I may see if and when you open an email and which links within the email you click. Also, this allows the Website to adapt the content of future newsletters to the interests of the user.

Credit Card information and other sensitive information is never transmitted via email.
