COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMATION

We may collect some or all of the following information from you when you visit our website:

1) personally-identifiable information that you voluntarily provide to us, such as your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address;
2) Information volunteered by you, such as survey information and/or information in connection with contest registrations; and/or
3) Aggregate and non-personal information identifying the Web pages that consumers access or visit.

The type of information we collect from you will depend on the web pages you access at our site. For example, you can visit our website and learn about our products without providing personally-identifiable information. However, you may be required to provide us with personal information when ordering products from our site, registering on the site, entering our contests or promotions, completing our surveys and questionnaires, using our “Tell a Friend” feature on our website, or using our recipe boxes on our site. Some of these uses are described in more detail below.

Orders—If you purchase a product from us, we request certain personally-identifiable information from you on our order form. You must provide contact information (such as name, e-mail, and shipping address) and financial information (such as credit card number, expiration date). We use this information for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we will use this information to contact you.

Registration—You may choose to register on our site. The information requested during the registration process includes personally-identifiable information such as your name, address, e-mail address, and telephone number. We use this information to monitor site traffic, send e-mail newsletters and personalize the site.

Surveys or Contests—We may provide you the opportunity to participate in contests or surveys on our site. If you participate, we will request certain personally-identifiable information from you. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and address), and demographic information (such as zip code) and will also include information contained in your contest entry and/or survey response.

Refer-A-Friend—This site may, from time to time, include a “Refer-A-Friend” application that makes it easy for you to forward information from our site to friends or family by e-mail. If you choose to tell a friend about our site, we will ask you for your friend’s name and e-mail address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time e-mail inviting him or her to visit the site. We do not store this information except for the sole purpose of sending this one-time e-mail.

A SPECIAL NOTE TO PARENTS: We respect the privacy of all of our online users, especially children. We do not intend to collect personally-identifiable information from children under 13. Our policy is intended to adhere to the Children's Advertising Review Unit (CARU) privacy guidelines and the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). We encourage parents to monitor, supervise, and join their children in online activities.
