Cafe Astrology is the personal site of Annie Heese (myself), and the legal terms are below. In sum, I have always used minimal extras and cookies for site functionality. These include cookies from third-party advertising (Google ads) and analytics (such as Google Analytics) for getting an idea of traffic and page popularity to the site, and, in recent years, cookies in the free report section of the site at astro.cafeastrology.com so that users can save data instead of re-entering charts each time they return, and caching or security functions to speed up page loads.

Cafe Astrology appreciates and respects the privacy concerns of the visitors to its web site. As a general policy, no personal information is automatically collected by Cafe Astrology from customers visiting this web site. However, certain information is recorded as a matter of course by Cafe Astrology’s servers in order to track the number of visitors to the web site and to help provide an enhanced online experience for the visitor. The type of information tracked by our servers includes the browser and operating system in use by the visitor and the domain name of the visitor’s Internet service Cafe Astrology. Collecting this information allows Cafe Astrology to optimize the visitor’s web site experience. E‑mail addresses and other personally identifiable data about visitors to this site are known to Cafe Astrology only if and when voluntarily submitted by the visitor. All personal information collected by Cafe Astrology is retained by Cafe Astrology and not sold or otherwise provided to third parties. Cafe Astrology sometimes uses email addresses and other personally identifiable information to communicate with visitors who have provided Cafe Astrology with their email addresses for specific purposes such as receiving newsletters or other information. Each newsletter will also contain instructions on how to discontinue receipt of the newsletter. Visitors should be aware that when they voluntarily disclose personal information on bulletin boards, comments, or in chat areas, that information can be collected and used by others and may result in unsolicited messages from other parties.
Some of Cafe Astrology’s web pages place a cookie in the browser files of a visitor’s computer. The cookie itself does not contain any personal information. Although cookies enable Cafe Astrology to relate a visitor’s use of Cafe Astrology’s site to information that the visitor has specifically and knowingly provided, Cafe Astrology does not do so for any sites specifically designed for and aimed at children. Cafe Astrology believes that parents should supervise their children’s online activities and should consider using parental control tools available from online services and software manufacturers that help provide a kid-friendly online environment. These tools can also prevent children from disclosing online any personal information without parental permission.
By posting/sending a message in the bulletin board/comments/e‑mail area, you agree to have that message along with your name posted for public viewing both here and in other promotional and advertising materials without compensation. Cafe Astrology will attempt to post as many messages as possible, cannot promise to post every submission. All messages that are posted here represent the opinions of the individuals or organizations posting those messages, and do not express the ideas or opinions of Cafe Astrology. You may copy the posted messages for personal use, but redistribution in any way requires the permission of Cafe Astrology. In consideration of this authorization, you agree that any copy you make of any message(s) located on this web site shall retain all copyright and other proprietary notices contained therein.

Questions about Reports/Orders:
Questions about report orders:
Email addresses are kept private and never used for mailing lists unless you formally subscribe to our email newsletter (currently not in use), in which case your email address is used solely for this purpose. We do not sell email address lists. Additionally, birth information submitted to us, whether through report orders or natal chart help, is only used for the intended purpose and never shared with third parties.
New Terms updated on May 19, 2018, can be found here.
Data Protection Statement:
Last updated: May 25th, 2018
Cafe Astrology is committed to keeping data safe and private. Regarding compliance with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the following is a data protection statement. By using the site, making a purchase, or requesting astrological information, you confirm that you have understood the information below and consent to the use of your data as outlined in this statement.
Cafe Astrology currently doesn’t have an official membership system in place. However, the site uses some popular third parties for analytics and e-commerce.
Emails are only sent to those people who have provided their email addresses for payment and fulfillment of orders, as well as in reply to those people writing for information. We do our best to delete emails sent to us with birth data requesting astrological information. We may not catch all of these if some have gone to spam but we do flush spam folders reasonably often. We securely store some birth data from customers or readers who’ve provided this data to us in various offline astrology software programs but don’t enter full birth names along with the data.
Regarding shared astrological data (whether through your astrological questions through emails or orders): Please note that astrological data is never shared with anyone outside of the site. If you’ve provided your birth data, you can request that we purge it from our software programs and delete emails that you’ve sent to us with the information. Storage of data is reasonably secure and takes the form of birth data only in offline astrological software. Backup copies of emails are kept offline in external hard drives.
Your payment details are retained for accounting reasons. No credit card or financial information is stored on Cafe Astrology whatsoever, neither is it submitted to the site since we use a secure Paypal shopping cart that handles all payments.
The Free Astrology Reports section at https://astro.cafeastrology.com has an informal account system in place. Birth data can be stored using cookies but is not attached to an email address. This is in place for convenience purposes so that users don’t have to reenter birth data each time they generate free reports. Please note that any individual chart or the full list of data can be erased by the user via the given link directly under the list.
If you clear your cache, the cookie data will be erased. However, if you take note of the Profile and PIN numbers directly below your list of charts, you can log in to an account with these numbers in order to retrieve the chart data. This is also useful for retrieving stored data on other devices. Please note that chart data is saved for convenience, but we cannot guarantee that it will be stored perpetually. It’s always wise to keep data anonymous by using an initial or pet name in the name field.
If you prefer not to store this chart data, at any time, you can delete your chart data on the home page of this Free Report section here. If you don’t want a cookie to save chart data at all, refer to an article here: for general instructions to block cookies. For Google Chrome users, you might try something like the Cookie Disable extension to do this on a per-site basis, or you can access the site through an Incognito Browser which won’t save your session (or birth data).
The Free report tool here does not store any birth data – the data disappears after a report is generated.
We currently don’t use opt-in email services, but an optional account system is in place in the Cafe Astrology Shop (store). With that system, anyone can request we delete their account at any time by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org. Customers also have the option not to create an account. In these ways, customers can exercise their rights according to the GDPR, and we ensure an appropriate level of security for customer data (including a secure site with a firewall in place).
As a data subject, you have various rights under the GDPR, including the right to access your data, the right to be forgotten (erased), and the right to make corrections.
To exercise any of these rights, please email email@example.com and state which right you would like to exercise.
Third parties we use to run the site:
UpDraftPlus: for keeping daily backup copies of the site, which are then stored in Dropbox. This ensures that if something happens to the site, a recent backup can be uploaded with minimal interruptions.
Google Analytics: We use Google to perform usage analytics. Google is GDPR compliant. You may opt out of Google Analytics here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/
In Motion Hosting: Our hosting company may store backup copies of the site which can include emails and databases.
CPanel Statistics: We refer to general statistics for the site that show visitor page totals as this helps us see which pages are most popular.
Sucuri Firewall: The Sucuri Firewall is another security feature to help protect the site from abuse.
Cloudflare: Cloudflare is a security and performance site that helps protect the site from abuse and that helps speed up the site for visitors.
Ads by Google are used on the site. Please review Google’s policies here: https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites
You may opt-out of the use of the DoubleClick Cookie for interest-based advertising by visiting the Google Ads Settings web page: http://www.google.com/ads/preferences/
