PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND USE AT THE SITE
We gather customer information needed to provide you with superior service, communicate offers on products and services that we believe will be of interest to you and to administer our business. We do not collect any personal information about you at our Site unless you choose to provide it to us voluntarily. We define “personal information” as information that is unique to you and might include your phone number, name, age, address, and photograph. Other examples of when we may ask you to voluntarily provide personally identifiable information include if you subscribe to our email program (information such as your name and e-mail address), choose to provide us with your preference information (such as interests, product preferences, and items purchased), or when you enter a sweepstakes or one of our promotions (information such as name, address and telephone number). If you encounter a screen or page that requests information you do not want to share with us, do not enter the information and do not proceed with that screen or page.
If you do provide us with personal information, we will only use it for the purposes described where it is collected, and we will not sell, license, transmit or disclose this information outside of the Company or its affiliates unless (1) you expressly authorize us to do so, (2) it is necessary to allow our trusted service providers or agents to provide services for us, (3) in order to provide our products or services to you, (4) it is disclosed to entities that perform marketing services on our behalf or to other entities with whom we have joint marketing agreements, (5) it is necessary in connection with a sale of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company or the merger of the Company into another entity or any consolidation, share exchange, combination, reorganization, or like transaction in which the Company is not the survivor, or (6) otherwise as we are required or permitted by law.

CONTESTS, SWEEPSTAKES AND OTHER PROMOTIONS
On our Site, you may wish to participate in contests, sweepstakes, and other promotions (collectively “Campaigns”) that we may offer from time to time. Through these Campaigns, you may choose to participate in activities such as sharing information found on our Site with others and sending email invitations. If you choose to participate in these Campaigns, and are eligible to do so, we may ask you for information such as your name, email address, date of birth and telephone number.
In connection with any Campaigns that we may offer from time to time via the Site, we use the information you provide to administer the Campaigns. We also may use the information to communicate with you, or the other people you select, about our products and services or our partners may use such information to communicate with you about the Campaigns or their products and services. We will not use information you provide about other people for any purpose except the purpose you direct without first getting their consent. Each Campaign will be subject to certain terms, rules, and conditions (the “Campaign Rules”). In no case should you enter or participate in any Campaign if you are under the age of 18.

Additionally, in the event that our Site offers a message board or any other interactive or social-type feature on a website administered directly by the Company, please be aware that these areas may allow you to publicly post, and share with other users, certain messages, content, or other information (e.g., stories, pictures, ingredients, tips, etc.). Although the Company may take certain precautions to protect those who use these areas of the Company’s Site, we encourage you to be wary of giving out any personal information in such public forums. The information you post can be collected and used by people you do not know. We cannot guarantee the privacy and safety of these areas and are therefore not responsible for any information you choose to post. Your use of these features is fully at your own risk.
