Privacy Policy

The Amaretto Community/The Amaretto Family Privacy Policy


Your privacy is very important to us. At The Amaretto Community we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:

We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.

We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.

We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, The Amaretto Community collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The Amaretto Community’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how The Amaretto Community’s visitors use its website. From time to time, The Amaretto Community may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

The Amaretto Community also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs/forums. The Amaretto Community only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to The Amaretto Community’s websites choose to interact with The Amaretto Community in ways that require The Amaretto Community to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that The Amaretto Community gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive The Amaretto Community updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, The Amaretto Community collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with The Amaretto Community. The Amaretto Community does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

The Amaretto Community may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, The Amaretto Community may monitor the most popular pages on The Amaretto Community.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. The Amaretto Community may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, The Amaretto Community does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

The Amaretto Community discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on The Amaretto Community’s behalf or to provide services available at The Amaretto Community’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using The Amaretto Community’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. The Amaretto Community will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, The Amaretto Community discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when The Amaretto Community believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of The Amaretto Community, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of The Amaretto Community website and have supplied your email address, The Amaretto Community may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with The Amaretto Community. We primarily use our various blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. The Amaretto Community takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. The Amaretto Community uses cookies to help The Amaretto Community identify and track visitors, their usage of The Amaretto Community website, and their website access preferences. The Amaretto Community visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using The Amaretto Community’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of The Amaretto Community’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.


Comments and other content submitted to Akismet anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
