Unsolicited Ideas and Inventions
COOGI or any of its employees do not accept or consider unsolicited ideas, including ideas for new advertising campaigns, new promotions, new or improved products or technologies, product enhancements, processes, materials, marketing plans or new product names. Please do not submit any unsolicited ideas, original creative artwork, suggestions or other works (“submissions”) in any form to COOGI or any of its employees. The sole purpose of this policy is to avoid potential misunderstandings or disputes when COOGI’s products or marketing strategies might seem similar to ideas submitted to COOGI. COOGI realizes the possibility exists that it will miss out on a good suggestion by adopting this strict policy and procedure. However, experience has shown us that this policy, which is shared by most major corporations, is the approach we consider to be in the best long term interest of everyone, legally protecting the interests of all parties involved. From a legal standpoint, we hope you understand COOGI’s position. If, despite our request that you not send us your ideas, you still submit them, then regardless of what your correspondence says, the following terms shall apply to your submissions and by your submission of ideas, you agree to these terms:
A. Terms of Idea Submission
You agree that subject to any existing trademark, copyright, patent or other intellectual property rights you may own or possess: (1) your submissions and their contents will automatically become licensed in perpetuity to COOGI, without any compensation to you; (2) COOGI may use or redistribute the submissions and their contents for any purpose and in any way; (3) there is no obligation for COOGI to review the submission; and (4) there is no obligation to keep any submissions confidential.
B. Product feedback
Although the policy dictates COOGI cannot consider your idea, and COOGI cannot offer you any compensation for this idea, this in no way reflects on its merits, and we greatly appreciate your interest in COOGI. If you want to send us your feedback, and we hope you do, we simply request that you send it to us using the form found on the COOGI.com Web Site, or you can choose from other listed areas for your feedback. Please provide only specific feedback on COOGI’s existing products or marketing strategies; do not include any ideas that COOGI’s policy will not permit it to accept or consider. It’s just one more way that COOGI can learn how to best satisfy your needs. Any feedback you provide at this site shall be deemed to be non-confidential. COOGI shall be free to use such information on an unrestricted basis.
All orders placed through the Web Site are subject to COOGI’s acceptance. This means that COOGI may refuse to accept or may cancel any order, whether or not the order has been confirmed, for any or no reason, and without liability to you or anyone else.

Information We Collect
We receive and may keep information voluntarily given to us when you decided to make a COOGI purchase, register on a COOGI website, take part in a special promotion, or provide any other information or unique preferences to better serve you. This information may include your name, address and phone number; date of birth; your e-mail address; your credit card information; proof of your identity; other ‘real world’ contact information and, such other information that COOGI may voluntarily collect from you from time to time on its website or through alternate means. It might also include information you provide us about other people. For example, you may provide us with some of the same information as above (name and address) for a merchandise gift recipient. When you provide us with personal information about the intended recipient of a shipment, we use that information for the purposes of processing the shipment and, in some cases, to communicate with the intended recipient to provide information pertaining to the status of the shipment. We rely on you to obtain the intended recipient’s consent to our use of their personal information for these limited purposes. We may receive information about you from other sources such as updated address information. This information may help us to improve our ability to serve your needs such as ensuring the accurate delivery of direct mail materials.
We may use third-party advertising companies to serve ads on our behalf
These companies may employ cookies and action tags (also known as single pixel gifs or web beacons) to measure advertising effectiveness.
Once Information Is Received, How Is It Used and/or Shared?
Information we collect from you may be shared between all points of contact within COOGI and its affiliates and subsidiaries. We use this information to offer you special offers, new products, and services and may share your information with affiliated and unaffiliated companies, sponsors and other third parties in COOGI’s sole and exclusive discretion. In addition, COOGI may use such information to provide you with timely and reliable fulfillment of requests; do all things necessary to administer those services; deliver merchandise and services that you purchase online; register you on COOGI.com; facilitate payment for your purchases; confirm your orders and delivery information; respond to your customer service inquiries or requests; communicate offers, benefits and featured items to you; administer giveaways, contests, and similar promotions; administer special customer recognition programs; find and stock the products you want; customize your shopping experience and other uses as determined by COOGI; analyze and support your purchases from COOGI; and analyze your use of the COOGI.com web site.
Certain business services are performed on COOGI’s behalf and at COOGI’s request by third parties and other companies. We may share your information with selected vendors that perform services for COOGI or to others for other marketing purposes. To perform these services, these companies may, at times, utilize some of the information you have provided COOGI. This information is used for the purposes COOGI has requested such as maintaining our database, administering and monitoring e-mails, and contest administration.
We may also share information with governmental agencies or other companies assisting us in fraud prevention or investigation. We may do so when (1) permitted or required by law, or (2) trying to protect against or prevent actual or potential fraud or unauthorized transactions, or (3) investigating fraud that has already taken place. In addition, COOGI reserves the right to disclose personal information to a third party if a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena or court order legally requires or authorizes us to do so.
Retention of Personal Information
COOGI generally keeps user data on our server or in our archives for as long as we reasonably need it. We may alter this practice according to changing requirements. For example, we may delete some data if needed to free up storage space. We may keep other data for longer periods if the law requires it. In addition, information posted in a public forum could stay in the public domain indefinitely. Your consent to such purposes(s) remains valid after any termination of our relationship with you.

COOGI further reserves the right to sell, license, lease, share, transfer or otherwise disclose personal information to third parties at COOGI’s sole discretion. COOGI may decide to retain a copy of the information after the sale or transfer for any use.
