We respect the privacy of the users of our Site and have instituted the policies and practices described below to ensure that your personal information is handled in a responsible manner. Our website Privacy Policy describes the types of personal information we may collect from you when you visit our Site, how we use this information, and when we share it with third parties or our affiliated organizations.

Information We Collect

We collect data in the following ways:

  • • Through our online contact form
  • • Through your use of our website

We may collect and store two types of information: "personal information" and "technical information."

Personal information tells us who you are and may include, but is not limited to, your name, email address, telephone number, date of birth or age, and any personal preferences you choose to provide.

Technical information is information that we collect automatically whenever you interact with our Site such as your IP address, and the web browser you use. An IP address is a number assigned to your computer when you connect to the Internet. Each time you visit our Site, our web server may automatically recognize and collect this information. Technical information also includes "cookies" and "web beacons".

A "cookie" is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. Among other things, cookies provide a means for us to keep track of your online patterns and preferences. By understanding which areas of our Site you visit, cookies allow us to present information and services that are of personal interest. A cookie will not allow us to learn any personal information (such as your real name and address) that you have not otherwise disclosed. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can change your browser so that it will not automatically accept cookies. However, if you do so, it is possible that some portions of our sites may not function as intended.

"Web beacons", also known as clear GIFs or single-pixel GIFs, are small image files that we may place on web pages and within web-based email newsletters that we send. Working in conjunction with cookies, web beacons allow us to accurately count the number of unique users who have visited a specific page and the number of times those pages are displayed.

We may associate technical information with your personal information. In the event of such association, such technical information will be considered personal information.

We use this information:

  • • For the specific purpose it was provided, for example to respond to your inquiries

  • • To improve the effectiveness of our Site and business activities

Visitors may occasionally be required to provide their e-mail address on this site. By providing us with your e-mail address or any other contact information (such as your mailing address) you understand and agree that we may use this contact information to occasionally send you information about products, promotions, etc. Visitors may also opt to provide their e-mail address to Schwan's Consumer Brands, Inc. at various non-required times.

Currently, you may request access to view or edit any personal information that you've provided online by contacting us through any of the options listed on the Contact Page of this Site.

Protecting Information

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be unconditionally guaranteed to be secure. Therefore any information you transmit to us is sent at your own risk.

However, we strive to maintain the reliability and accuracy of the personal data you submit to us and that we store in our databases. We also strive to protect the privacy and security of our databases themselves. Accordingly, we have put certain security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Although we cannot guarantee against any loss, misuse, unauthorized disclosure, alteration or destruction of data, we do our best to prevent such unfortunate occurrences and notify our users of any events impacting their personal information.

Disclosure to Third Parties

We may disclose personal information about you to other affiliates or third parties who provide services to us and who agree to maintain the confidentiality of such information in accordance with this Privacy Policy (or more stringent policies) and use the information only in connection with the services they provide. These third parties may provide a variety of services to us including, without limitation, assisting us in fulfilling your customer service inquiries. We do not authorize those third parties to make any other use of your information. We may use and/or disclose to others information about your demographics and use of our Site in a manner that does not reveal your identity.

We may disclose personal information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property, other users of our Site, or anyone else who could be harmed by such activities.

We may also disclose personal information when we reasonably believe that the law requires it. Except as described above, Schwan's Consumer Brands, Inc. does not sell, rent or trade with third parties any personal information you provide to us online, nor do we share such information with third parties.

Protecting Children's Privacy

Our Site is a general audience website. We do not intentionally collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen (13). If we become aware that we have collected personally identifiable information from a user of our Site who is under the age of 13, we will remove that child's personal information from our files.
