Make Lemonade takes user privacy and confidentiality very seriously because we know that your privacy on the web is very important to you. The protection of your personal information is of the utmost importance to Make Lemonade. You can visit this Site without telling us who you are or providing us with any information. We may collect the names and e-mail addresses of those who send us e-mail messages and we may send you unsolicited email messages. Further, we also may share your email address with other individuals or companies besides Make Lemonade.

When you request information from Make Lemonade and supply information that personally identifies you or allows us to contact you, you are agreeing to share that information with Make Lemonade, its agents, representatives and affiliates. We may receive and store any information you enter on our Site or give us in any other way. Further, we may receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us.

Site Not For Minors

If you are under 18 years of age, you may use www.makelemonade.co only with the involvement of a parent or guardian.

Make Lemonade, therefore, will not knowingly collect information about any user who is of minor age. We do not knowingly collect, use or disclose personally identifiable information from anyone who is of minor age. If we determine upon collection that a user is under this age, we will not use or maintain his/her personal information.

They also may set and/or access a cookie. These plugins are governed solely by the privacy policy of the company providing them.

Data Security

We use commercially reasonable and generally-accepted technological safeguards to secure any information that we collect about you. The secure server software (SSL) that we use encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us. We work very hard to protect your privacy, but we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private. While we use industry-standard precautions to safeguard your personal information, we cannot guarantee complete security. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to the Site or to us, and you transmit such information at your own risk. We also cannot guarantee that unauthorized persons will not obtain access to your personally-identifiable information.

Sharing Data

We may release information (including, but not limited to, your name, address(es), email address, telephone number, and account activity) when we, in our sole discretion, believe that such release is necessary or appropriate to:

  • comply with law;
  • comply with subpoenas, warrants, court orders, government investigations, or other legal process;
  • enforce or apply the terms of any of our user or license agreements;
  • investigate or respond to allegations of fraud, intellectual property infringement or other unlawful activity

Make Lemonade may disclose non-personally-identifiable information to third parties in aggregate form to potential or current business partners, affiliates and investors.

Make Lemonade may use third party service providers to place ads on our behalf across the internet and on the Site. These third parties may collect anonymous information about your visits to our Site, and your interaction with our products and services. They may also use information about your visits to this and other websites to target advertisements for goods and services. This anonymous information is collected through the use of a web beacon, which is industry standard technology used by most major sites.

We may offer our users the opportunity to opt-in to receive emails, notifications, or promotions offered by our partners. You have the right to decline to opt-in to take advantage of this service.
