Privacy Policy


Your privacy is our priority. Like you, we think internet technology is pretty great, but we don't want it to come at the cost of our privacy - or yours. We are committed to protecting your privacy at all times, in all situations.

The information we collect about you when you become a member of our web site is used to process your orders and to provide a more personalized experience on our site. Our site uses a 128 bit encrypted SSL to increase the security of our customer’s information during transmission, but The Expresso Shoppe can not and does not guarantee the complete security of transmitted or stored information.

How Do We Use the Information We Collect?

When you become an member, we ask you to provide basic information about yourself; your name, address and e-mail address. This information is used solely to process your orders. This information will NEVER be sold, given, rented or traded to others for purposes other than fulfillment of your order.

If we ask for additional demographic information (gender, birthday, etc.), it will be used only for compliance and security purposes, and to support "Special Offer" and other web site functions.


If you choose to use our web site's referral service to tell a friend about content on our site, we will ask you for your friend's name and email address (so we can send them the email). We'll send your friend a one-time email with a link inviting them to visit the site. We do not store this information and use it only to send this one-time email.

Our Use of Log Files

When you visit our site we automatically log your IP address, your browser type and your access times. We utilize this information to conduct site performance evaluations, to see where visitors are coming from and to keep track of click stream data (the screens our users visit on our site). This data helps us to determine which content our members find most appealing so that we can maximize your enjoyment of the site. Log files are not tied to personally identifiable information.

Site Security

We take your personal information very seriously. Access to your profile information is limited to key personnel within our company and all member information is ID and password protected. Our web site security is reviewed on a regular basis and sensitive data transfers to/from our web site are secured using industry-standard 128 bit SSL.
