Discovery Foods, Inc., is committed to protecting the privacy and security of the users of our Sites.
Personal Identification Information
Discovery Foods may request personal identification information from you (such as your name, mailing and delivery addresses, phone number, e-mail address, and/or any other identifier that permits the physical or online contacting of you) in connection with your use of, or participation in surveys, email, requests for suggestions or coupons or additional information (including via e-mail to us), and in connection with other activities, services or resources we make available on any of our Sites.
In all of these cases, we will collect personal identification information from you only if you voluntarily submit such information to us. If you do not want your personal identification information collected, please do not submit it to us. Except as otherwise provided in this policy, we endeavor to ensure that we never intentionally disclose any personal identification information about you as an individual user to any third party without having received your permission (through your requests and by opt-in or similar procedures) except as provided for herein or otherwise as permitted or required under law.
Further, we may contact you based on the information you provide online such your comments or questions on the “Contact Us” web page to respond to your comments or questions or to confirm your registration with us.
If you do provide us with personal information for any of these activities, we may use it to conduct the activity. We may also use cookie technology (discussed in detail below) to improve your experience and our Sites.
We have the following exceptions to these policies: We will release specific information about you or your account to comply with any valid legal inquiry or process such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute or court order. We will also release specific information in special cases, such as if there is an attempted breach of the security of the Sites, or a physical or property threat to you or others. We may also transfer user information, including personally identifiable information, in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, the sale of related assets or corporate division, or other fundamental corporate change, when third parties in such transactions may be entitled to use the personal information disclosed by users of our Sites. We may provide access to your personally identifiable information to our contractors who are performing services for us in connection with our Sites or the services that you have requested. We may also store your information on a server that is maintained by one of our contractors.
In addition, on occasion, we may collect personal identification information from you in connection with optional contests, special offers or promotions. We will share such information with necessary third parties for the purpose of carrying out the contest, special offer or promotion. Your participation in the contest, special offer or promotion constitutes your consent to such disclosure and use of such information.
Non-Personal Identification Information
We collect non-personal identification information through the use of, without limitation, the following types of technology:
"Cookie" technology: “Cookies” are pieces of information that a web site transfers to an individual’s hard drive for record-keeping purposes. They enhance the online experience by saving your preferences while you are visiting a particular site. The cookies Discovery Foods uses do not contain any personally identifying information and cannot profile your system or collect information from your hard drive. And while you may receive cookies from many different sites, each cookie can only be read by the web server that originally issued it. You are not even identified by name or e-mail address, just by a unique string of numbers that we assign for the first time when you visit one of our Sites. With most Internet browsers, you can erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block all cookies or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. Please refer to your browser instructions or “help” screen to learn more about these functions.
"IP address tracking": An "IP address" is a number that is assigned to your computer when you are on the Internet. When you request pages from our Sites, our servers log your IP address.
Our systems may also automatically gather information about the date and time you visited our Sites, the pages you accessed, the name of the web site from which you linked to our Sites, the areas on our Sites you visit, search terms you utilize when visiting our Sites, and the links you select from within our Sites to visit other areas of the World Wide Web or elsewhere online.
We use such information for our business purposes, and, in particular, to administer the Site and to better understand how our users as a group use the services and resources provided on our Sites. This way we know which areas of our Sites are favorites of our users, which areas need improvement, and what technologies are being used so that we may continually improve our Sites. We also use this information to analyze trends and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.
Further, from time-to-time we contract with third party web analytics providers to help manage and optimize our Sites. We use this service to help us measure the effectiveness of how visitors use our Sites. To do this, we use cookie technology on the Sites. The type of information we collect includes such information as the number of hits a webpage receives, the type of Internet browser or computer operating system a visitor used, and number of times a visitor takes advantage of a particular promotion.
By supplementing our records, this information helps us learn things like what pages are most attractive to our visitors, which products and services most interest our visitors, and what kinds of offers our visitors like to see. Although this third-party provider logs the information coming from our Sites on our behalf, we direct the third-party provider on how that data may and may not be used.
Privacy of Children
We understand that children need special safeguards and privacy protection. We realize that they may not understand all the provisions of our policy or be able to make thoughtful decisions about the choices that are made available to our adult users. We strongly urge all parents to participate in their children's exploration of the Internet and any online services, and to teach their children about protecting their personal information while online.
This site is not directed to children age 13 and under.

Links to Other Sites
Protecting your privacy and your information is a top priority. We have security measures in place on our Sites to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. We exercise reasonable care in providing safe transmission of your information from your PC to our servers (unless sent by a means outside of our control, such as e-mail). In no event, however, can we guaranty that our measures will completely bar unauthorized access to your information, and by using the Sites you assume this risk. It is not possible for us to guarantee the security or integrity of information you disclose online since a sufficiently powerful attack from an unauthorized third party could compromise your data.

To help us address your request, please specify which information you wish to review.
