RIESI, Sicily, Italy -- Thank you for visiting this website of Muffoletta.com -- the Official Muffoletta Webiste.  Your privacy is important to us.  To better protect your privacy, we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used at this Muffoletta.com site.

Information we collect

At some Muffoletta.com sites, you can review information, order products or services, express an opinion, subscribe to one of our services such as our online newsletters, or participate in one of our online forums or communities.  The types of personally identifiable information that may be collected at these pages include:  name, address, email address, telephone number, fax number, credit card information, and information about your interests in and use of various products, programs, and services.

At some other Muffoletta.com sites, you can submit information about other people.  For example, you might submit a person's name and email address to send an electronic notice about an international legal development and, if you order a gift online and want it sent directly to the recipient, you might submit the recipient's name and address.  The types of personally identifiable information that may be collected about other people at these pages include: recipient's name, address, email address, and telephone number.

At certain parts of some of our sites, only persons who provide us with the requested personally identifiable information will be able to order products, programs, and services or otherwise participate in the site's activities and offerings.

We also may collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit many of our web pages such as the type of browser you are using (e.g., Internet Explorer and Netscape), the type of operating system you are using, (e.g., Windows XP and Mac XOS) and the domain name of your Internet service provider (e.g., .it and Earthlink).

How we use information

We may use the information you provide about yourself to fulfill your requests for our products, programs, and services, to respond to your inquiries about our offerings, and to offer you other products, programs or services that we believe may be of interest to you.

We sometimes use this information to communicate with you, such as to notify you when you have requested certain legal updates or when we make changes to our subscriber agreements, to fulfill a request by you for an online newsletter, or to contact you about your account with us.

We use the information that you provide about others to enable us to send them your information, funds or products.  From time to time, we also may use this information to offer our services, programs, or products to them.

The information we collect in connection with our online forums and communities is used to provide an interactive experience.  We use this information to facilitate participation in these online forums and communities and, from time to time, to offer you products, programs, or services.

If you choose to submit content for publication (e.g., an "international legal advisory"), we may publish your screen name and other information you have provided to us.

We sometimes use the non-personally identifiable information that we collect to improve the design and content of our site and to enable us to personalize your Internet experience.  We also may use this information in the aggregate to analyze site usage, as well as to offer you services, programs, or products.

We may disclose personally identifiable information in response to legal process, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena. We also may disclose such information in response to a law enforcement agency's request.

Agents and contractors of the Muffoletta.com who have access to personally identifiable information are required to protect this information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Notice by, for example, not using the information for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for Muffoletta.com.

Although we take appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot assure you that personally identifiable information that we collect will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Notice.

It is the policy of all Muffoletta.com sites not to disclose any personally identifiable information to any company whose practices are not covered by this privacy notice (e.g., other marketers, magazine publishers, retailers, participatory databases, and non-profit organizations) that want to market products or services to you.  Therefore, since no Muffoletta.com site shares such personally identifiable information, there is no need for the Muffoletta.com to provide you with an opportunity to opt out or block such use.

We may on occasion combine information we receive online with outside records to enhance our ability to market to you those services, programs or products which may be of interest to you.  If you prefer not to receive marketing information from this site, follow the instructions at the bottom of email on how to unsubscribe from such service.

Finally, the Muffoletta.com sites covered by this Privacy Notice will not use or transfer personally identifiable information provided to us in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you with an opportunity to opt out of these unrelated uses.

Collection of information by others

Some of our sites contain links to other sites whose information practices may be different than ours.  Visitors should consult the other sites' privacy notices as we have no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties.

The Muffoletta.com sites covered by this Privacy Notice sometimes may offer content (e.g., contests or promotions) that is sponsored by or co-branded with identified third parties.  By virtue of these relationships, the third parties may obtain personally identifiable information that visitors voluntarily submit to participate in the site activity.  The Muffoletta.com has no control over these third parties' use of this information.  The Muffoletta.com site will notify you at the time of requesting personally identifiable information if these third parties will obtain such information.

The Muffoletta.com does not currently partner with or have special relationships with any third-party ad server companies to serve or present the ads that appear on our site. Some of our advertisers, however, may use the services of third-party ad networks.  For information about third-party ad services, see the Network Advertising Initiative.


To enhance your experience with our sites, many of our web pages use "cookies."  Cookies are text files we place in your computer's browser to store your preferences.  Cookies, by themselves, do not tell us your email address or other personally identifiable information unless you choose to provide this information to us by, for example, registering at one of our sites.  However, once you choose to furnish the site with personally identifiable information, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie.

We use cookies to understand site usage and to improve the content and offerings on our sites.  For example, we may use cookies to personalize your experience at our web pages (e.g., to recognize you by name when you return to our site), assist you in conducting a search of our website, save your password in password-protected areas, and enable you to use shopping carts on our sites.  We also may use cookies to offer you services, programs or products.

Commitment to security

We have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information we collect online.

How to access or correct information

Access to personally identifiable information that is collected from our sites may be accessible for a limited period of time from the point of collection.  For example, if you created a password-protected account within our site go back to that portion of the site to review the information you provided.

You may also send an email or letter to the following email or street address requesting access to or correction of your personally identifiable information.  For verification purposes, please include your first name, last name, and email address which you used for such service.  Never give out your password by telephone, email or letter.  Your password is to be used in the Password Entry form on our website, so that you can gain access to the website from your computer.
