PROTECTING YOUR PRIVACY
WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?
While using our Sites, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you (“Personal Information”). Personal Information may include, but is not limited to, your name, address, phone number and email address.
You may, for example, provide Personal Information by sending us your feedback on our products, signing up for our newsletter or by participating in contests and sweepstakes. Your participation in any of these activities is voluntary and we will use Personal Information only for the purposes for which it was collected. For example, we may use your Personal Information to answer your questions, fulfill your requests, provide services or products to you, or improve our products and services.
We send our electronic newsletter to consumers who opted in on our website, social media pages, at events or through our contact form to receive news from us. Once signed up for our newsletter, you will receive information about our promotions, articles on topics of interest, recipes using our products, and other information relating to our products. You may choose to no longer receive these communications by clicking the “Unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any of the emails you receive from us. If you unsubscribe, you will no longer receive marketing emails from us, but you may still receive non-marketing emails like responses from inquiries made on our Contact Us page.
Contests, sweepstakes and games
We may use Personal Information to administer contests, sweepstakes, or regarding other marketing information and promotions. If you choose to participate, we may ask for Personal Information from you, like first name, last name, contact information, and location information. To learn more about our contests, sweepstakes and other promotions, please review the official rules or details that are posted with each promotion.
Consumer feedback and stories
Feedback from our consumers is very important to us because we constantly seek to make our products better, develop new products and improve our customers’ experience. We are interested in consumer stories, as they relate to our product – for example when and why they started eating them, how they use them in their daily routine or recipes and what they mean to them in their daily lives.
If you voluntarily share some of your personal experiences, recipes and/or photographs of our products by email or on one of our sites, you agree to have this information republished by us or used for other marketing promotions.
Technical information that may be collected includes information about the computer system or other technological device you may be using to access our Site, such as your computer’s IP address, operating system type and web browser, or websites you may have visited before visiting ours. If using a mobile phone or tablet, your device’s unique device ID and other similar mobile device data may be collected.
We use the following technologies to enhance the functionality, experience and navigation of our Site for our visitors:
Web beacons: A web beacon is an invisible, embedded object or GIF file in a website or email, which allows us to check whether a user has accessed content. We may use this to track who is reading our Site, emails and newsletter, as well as when, and from which computer. It allows us to see if an email was read or forwarded to someone else, or if a web page was copied to another website.
Analytical technology: We may use third-party tracking services that capture how people navigate on our Site. This may include information on which pages you visited, what links you clicked on and how much time you spent browsing our Site. We do not link this non-Personal Information with Personal Information.
HOW DO WE USE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT?
We use Personal Information for a variety of purposes, all intended to serve our customers better. These purposes include improving the user experience on our Sites, answering your questions and providing great customer service, improving our products and developing new products, administering contests, sweepstakes and other marketing promotions, sending newsletters and other information relevant to our customers, and other general business purposes.
HOW DO WE SHARE PERSONAL INFORMATION?
We do not sell, transfer or otherwise disclose to third parties the Personal Information we collect on our Site except to provide services you requested on our Site or as required by law. On occasion, we may share Personal Information with trusted parties who provide services on our behalf, help us operate our Sites, or assist us in conducting our business, as long as these parties agree to keep such information confidential. We do not sell your Personal Information.
Our website may contain links to other websites that are operated by third parties. We have no control over these websites, and they have their own privacy policies. Before you submit any information on third-party websites, you should review their privacy policies and practices carefully.
Our Site also may use third-party integrations, sometimes referred to as “plugins”, to provide you with enhanced services or features. These third-party integrations are governed by the privacy policies of their respective providers.
We are committed to protecting the privacy of children and we do not knowingly collect, store or solicit personal information from children under the age of 13. If a child has already provided us with personal information, his or her parent or guardian may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to have this personal information deleted.
