Curate Snacks Privacy Policy US Residents Only

This Policy applies to residents of the United States. This Privacy Policy explains how we handle the personal information that you provide to us on Web sites controlled by Curate Snacks and its affiliates which link to this Privacy Policy (referred to as "Curate Snacks Web sites"). This Privacy Policy does not apply to personal information collected from you offline, to Curate Snacks Web sites that do not link to this Privacy Policy, to residents of countries other than the United States, or to third-party Web sites to which Curate Snacks Web sites may link. Your use of Curate Snacks Web sites, which link to this Privacy Policy, is subject to this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Use.

Please read this Privacy Policy before using Curate Snacks Web sites or submitting personal information to us.

How does this Privacy Policy define "personal information"?

"Personal information" means information that identifies you or could reasonably be used to identify you and which is submitted to and/or collected by Curate Snacks Web sites and maintained by Curate Snacks in an accessible form. Examples of personal information include your name, your postal address and your telephone number.

How does Curate Snacks collect information online?

Curate Snacks collects information in two ways:

  • Personal Information You Submit:

    Curate Snacks collects personal information that you enter into data fields on Curate Snacks Web sites. For example, you may submit your name, postal address, e-mail address, and/or other information in order to receive information about various subjects, register for Curate Snacks programs, contact Curate Snacks customer service, or respond to Curate Snacks surveys. To protect your privacy, you should not provide Curate Snacks with any information that is not specifically requested.
  • Passive Collection of Unidentifiable Information:

    Curate Snacks Web sites may collect information about your visits to Curate Snacks Web sites without you actively submitting such information. Unidentifiable information may be collected using various technologies, such as cookies, Internet tags, and web beacons. Your Internet browser automatically transmits to Curate Snacks Web sites some of this unidentifiable information, such as the URL of the Web site you just visited and the browser version your computer is operating. Passive information collection technologies can make your use of Curate Snacks Web sites easier by allowing Curate Snacks to provide better service, customize sites based on consumer preferences, compile statistics, analyze trends, and otherwise administer and improve Curate Snacks Web sites. Certain features of Curate Snacks Web sites may not work without use of passive information collection technologies. Information collected by these technologies cannot be used to identity you without additional identifiable information.

In what circumstances might Curate Snacks collect and use personal information?

Curate Snacks will use the personal information you provide through Curate Snacks Web sites to respond to your questions and to provide you with efficient customer service. After you have entered personal information into a form or data field on a Curate Snacks Web site, Curate Snacks may use certain identifying technologies to allow that Web site to "remember" your personal preferences, such as sections of that Web site that you visit frequently and, if you choose, your user ID. We may also use this personal information for other business purposes, such as to offer you the opportunity to receive notices regarding Curate Snacks products or services, to invite you to participate in surveys about our products, or to notify you about special promotions.

Some of our applications and mobile-optimized sites may have location-based features. To deliver these features, we will collect and use location data provided by your mobile device. For example, we may offer shopping features that allow you to get information about local merchants. Location information will be collected solely to deliver the requested feature, and it will not be further retained or stored. By using such applications, you consent to the collection and use of your mobile device location data for purposes of delivering these location-based features.

Does Curate Snacks consolidate personal information?

Curate Snacks may combine the personal information that you provide to us on one Curate Snacks Web site with the personal information provided by you on other Curate Snacks Web sites. Curate Snacks may also combine personal information that you provide to us online with our offline records as well as records provided by third parties. We use this consolidated information to help us better design Curate Snacks Web sites and Curate Snacks products, to communicate information to you, to enhance our marketing and research activities, and to facilitate other business functions.

What choices do I have about how Curate Snacks collects and uses personal information about me?

You may always limit the amount and type of personal information that Curate Snacks receives about you by choosing not to enter any personal information into forms or data fields on Curate Snacks Web sites. Some of our online services can only be provided to you if you provide us with appropriate personal information. Other parts of Curate Snacks Web sites may ask whether you wish to opt out or opt into our contact lists for offers, promotions and additional services that may be of interest to you.

You may also be provided with preference questions or preference boxes allowing you to indicate that you do not want Curate Snacks Web sites to use tracking technologies, such as cookies, to "remember" your personal information, such as user IDs or mailing addresses, on return visits. However, Curate Snacks Web sites that use tracking technologies to collect unidentifiable information do not generally provide you with the ability to opt out of the tracking technologies. Some Internet browsers allow you to limit or disable the use of tracking technologies that collect unidentifiable information.

Who will have access to personal information about me?

Personal information can be accessed by a restricted number of Curate Snacks employees, by certain companies with which Curate Snacks may conduct joint programs, and by individuals and entities with whom Curate Snacks contracts to carry out business activities for Curate Snacks. We train our employees about the importance of privacy and how to handle and manage customer data appropriately and securely. Also, it is Curate Snacks practice to notify you if you are registering for a program which is conducted in conjunction with another company that may require access to your personal information. In addition, Curate Snacks practice is to require its contractors to keep your personal information confidential and to use personal information only to perform functions for Curate Snacks.

Does Curate Snacks share personal information with third parties?

As a general rule, Curate Snacks does not share your personal information with third parties, unless it is necessary to conduct a joint program or to carry out a program or activity through a contractor. Where required by law, Curate Snacks will not disclose your personal information to third parties for those third parties' marketing purposes, unless you have been provided with an opportunity to opt into or opt out of this disclosure. However, if Curate Snacks sells one of its product lines or divisions, your personal information may be transferred to the buyer so that the buyer can continue to provide you with information and services. If Curate Snacks provides your personal information to individuals and entities which assist us with our business activities, it is Curate Snacks practice to require those individuals and entities to keep your personal information confidential and to use your personal information only to perform functions for Curate Snacks. Curate Snacks reserves the right to disclose your personal information to respond to authorized information requests from government authorities, to address national security situations, or when otherwise required by law.

How does Curate Snacks secure personal information?

It is Curate Snacks practice to secure each web page that collects personal information; however, the confidentiality of personal information transmitted over the Internet cannot be guaranteed. We urge you to exercise caution when transmitting personal information over the Internet, especially personal information related to your health. Curate Snacks cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will not gain access to your personal information; therefore, when submitting personal information to Curate Snacks Web sites, you must weigh both the benefits and the risks. In addition, Curate Snacks Web sites covered by this Privacy Policy will display a warning whenever you link to a Web site that is not controlled by Curate Snacks or subject to a Curate Snacks privacy policy; you should check the privacy policies of such third-party Web sites before submitting personal information.

Curate Snacks has policies, which provide for the proper use and protection of Social Security numbers obtained in the course of doing business with Curate Snacks. Curate Snacks policies require that Social Security numbers be appropriately secured to avoid loss, misuse or unauthorized access of Social Security numbers. Unlike this Privacy Policy, which applies only to on-line personal information, Curate Snacks's policies governing Social Security numbers apply to both on-line and off-line collection and use of Social Security numbers.
