Privacy Policy

LAST REVISED: 5/13/2014

The TeasdaleFoods.com website is owned and operated by Teasdale Quality Foods, Inc. and its affiliates (collectively “Teasdale Foods” or “we”). This Privacy Policy describes how we collect, use and disclose information about users of our website. By using our website, you accept and agree to be bound by this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Use.

NOTICE TO CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS – YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY AND INFORMATION RIGHTS:

• Pursuant to Section 1798.83 of the California Civil Code (known as the “shine the light” law), a California resident has a right to know from a business, with whom he or she has an established business relationship, what personal information (if any) the business has shared with third parties during the immediately preceding calendar year for such third parties’ direct marketing uses, as well as the identities of such third parties.

We do not knowingly share your personal information with third parties for such third parties’ direct marketing uses, unless you have affirmatively consented to such sharing.

Any request for an information-sharing disclosure under this law should be sent to us via email at CustomerService@teasdalefoods.com. Please note that under this law, we are not required to respond to a California resident‘s request more than once in a calendar year, nor are we required to respond to any request that is not sent to the email address designated above.

• Pursuant to Section 17538 of the California Business and Professions Code, prior to accepting payment from a buyer located in California, we are required to disclose to the following information to the buyer:

• Our Legal Name: Teasdale Quality Foods, Inc.

• Our Business Address: 901 Packers Street, Atwater, CA 95301.

• Our return and refund policy, which can be found here.

Also, as required by California law, within 30 days of accepting payment for a purchase order you place on our website, we will do one of the following: (1) shipping the order to you; (2) providing a full refund; (3) sending you a written notice of an expected delay and offering a full refund; or (4) offering you the choice between receiving a substitute product of equivalent or superior quality and receiving a full refund.

• Do Not Track Disclosure: We do not currently respond to “Do Not Track” signals of web browsers. However, should the industry establish uniform technological standards for recognizing and implementing “Do Not Track” signals, we would be open to following such industry standards.

1. INFORMATION WE COLLECT

1.1 Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”): This is information that identifies you personally, such as your name, street address, email address, phone number, and order and payment information. We do not collect PII from you unless you voluntarily provide it to us. We ask for and collect your PII when you engage in an identification activity on our website, such as creating an account, placing an order, submitting a request or inquiry, answering a survey or otherwise providing feedback, signing up for our contact lists, or entering a sweepstakes, contest, giveaway, or other promotion offered on our website (each, an “Identification Activity”). Whether or not to disclose PII is completely your choice. However, without providing PII you will not be able to engage in or complete an Identification Activity. You must be 18 or older to engage in an Identification Activity on our website.

1.2 Aggregate and Anonymous Information (“AAI”): This refers to information that does not identify you personally. For example, we and our service providers collect anonymous group data (demographics, interests and preferences, etc.) about users of our website, as well as traffic data such as total page views in a given time period; average amount of time users spend on our website, how many times a particular piece of content on our website was viewed or downloaded by our users, etc. Moreover, we may combine UAI (as defined below) about you and other users of our website to generate aggregate information that reflects activities, habits, preferences, interests, etc. about our users as a group. In addition, we may take PII and make it non-personally identifiable, such as by aggregating your information with information about other individuals, or by removing personally-identifiable elements (such as names) so as to “anonymize” or “de-personalize” your information.

1.3 User Activity Information (“UAI”): This refers to information we collect about user activities on our website. For example, we and/or our service providers may use cookies and/or similar technologies to collect “clickstream data” about users of our website, such as: IP addresses (which are numerical numbers that are automatically assigned to users’ computers and mobile devices when they are surfing the Internet), the type of browser you are using (e.g., Firefox, Internet Explorer), the type of operating system you are using, (e.g., Microsoft Windows or Mac OS), the domain name of your Internet service provider, the web pages you have visited, the content you have accessed and the advertisements you have been shown and/or clicked on, etc. See the “Use of Cookies and Web Beacons” section below for more information.

NOTE: To the extent we use UAI in a manner that identifies a person individually (e.g., if we link or associate such information with name or address), such information will be treated as PII. Otherwise, UAI will be treated as AAI.

2. WHAT WE DO WITH THE INFORMATION

The following describes how we use and share information (including PII) collected from and about users of our website:

• To provide, manage and improve our website: This includes using PII to enable, administer and manage our users’ Identification Activities.

• To communicate and keep in touch with our users: This includes informing you about changes to our website or changes in this Privacy Policy or our Terms of Use, and sending you information that you have requested or that may be of interest to you (such as our new products, special offers, upcoming promotions, etc.).

• To share with co-sponsors: From time to time, we may conduct promotions with one or more third-party co-sponsors. As a condition of participation in such a co-sponsored promotion, we may ask for your affirmative consent to allow us to share your PII collected in connection with the promotion with our co-sponsor(s), with the understanding that our co-sponsor(s) may use the information for its/their own direct marketing purposes and that we will have no control over such use by our co-sponsor(s).

• To share with third-party service providers in order for them to assist us in operating and managing our website: We use third-party service vendors to help us operate and manage our website and they may need to access information collected from and about our users (including PII) in order to provide services for our website. For example, Teasdale Foods is using the e-commerce service vendor Nexternal to host and manage the online shopping operations of our website. So, when you make a purchase on our website, your PII will be shared with Nexternal as necessary for Nexternal to process and complete your purchase order, including processing your payment for the order. Your PII will also be shared with our fulfillment service vendors as necessary for them to provide fulfillment, shipping, and customer services regarding your order.

We require that third-party service providers limit their use of our users’ PII solely to providing services to us and that they safeguard such information and not make unauthorized use or disclosure of the information.

• To protect our rights, etc.: We may disclose your information (including PII) if doing so, in our good faith belief, is necessary to: (i) protect the rights, property, safety or security of Teasdale Foods, our users, and/or the public (including enforcement of the terms of this Privacy Policy and/or our Terms of Use); (ii) protect against fraud or for risk management purposes; (iii) comply with law or legal process (including a court order or subpoena); and/or (iv) to cooperate with law enforcement (including investigation of an alleged or suspected crime, fraud or other illegal activity).

• To complete a merger, sale of business or assets, etc.: If we are involved in a merger, acquisition, financing, or sale of business or assets, information collected from and about our users (including PII) may be transferred to one or more third parties involved in such transaction and, upon such transfer, the relevant third-party privacy policy or policies may govern further use of the information.

• Use and sharing of AAI: Because of the anonymous, non-personally identifiable nature of AAI, there are no restrictions under this Privacy Policy on how we may use and share AAI.

3. INFORMATION SECURITY

3.1 We want you to feel secure in shopping with us. That’s why we’ve partnered with Nexternal, a company who specializes in e-commerce. Security is paramount at Nexternal. Nexternal is PCI (Payment Card Industry Security Standards) compliant and uses the latest Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology during order process and within the Order Management System. All payment card information (including credit/debit card numbers, expiration dates, and security/authorization codes) provided by online purchasers is encrypted when transmitted to and processed and stored by Nexternal or Authorize.net. Nexternal or Authorize.net only uses and stores a purchaser’s payment card information for the duration that is necessary to process and complete a purchase transaction, and does not retain such information after a transaction is completed. Nexternal also uses a third party security auditing company, McAfee, which scans the Nexternal network daily looking for vulnerabilities.

For data security reasons, Teasdale Foods neither receives nor has access to a purchaser’s payment card information, and Nexternal or Authorize.net do not share such information with Teasdale Foods.

3.2 Although we endeavor to safeguard the security of your PII, no one can guarantee the complete safety of your information. We will endeavor to notify you if and to the extent required by law, in the event we become aware of a breach or suspected breach of the security of your PII stored by or for us. However, we are not liable for any breach of the security of your information resulting from causes or events that are beyond our control, including, without limitation, your own act or omission, corruption of storage media, defects in third-party data security products or services, power failures, natural phenomena, riots, acts of vandalism, hacking, sabotage, or terrorism. By providing your email address to us, you acknowledge and agree that we may notify you via email in the event of a breach of security involving your PII stored by us or on our behalf.

3.3 If you have any questions regarding the security of our website, please CONTACT US.

4. INFORMATION ACCESS AND CHOICE

If you have provided PII to Teasdale Foods and you wish to view, update, correct, or delete the information, or if you wish to stop (opt-out) receiving further marketing/promotional communications (emails, postal mailings, etc.) from us, please CONTACT US. We will endeavor to process your request as soon as reasonably practicable upon receipt (or within such time as required by applicable law).

However, by providing PII to us, you expressly understand, acknowledge and agree as follows:

• We reserve the right to retain your information if doing so, in our good faith belief, is necessary to comply with law or legal process (including a court order or subpoena), to cooperate with law enforcement (including investigation of an alleged or suspected crime, fraud or other illegal activity), to complete a pending transaction, to resolve a claim or dispute, or to enforce an applicable agreement between you and Teasdale Foods.

• Your opt-out regarding our marketing/promotional communications will NOT affect communications from us of a transactional or relationship nature or as required by law (e.g., communications regarding your account or a purchase, request or inquiry you have made with us, notices regarding a material change in this Privacy Policy or any of our other policies, or regarding an actual or suspected security breach that affects your PII stored by or for us, etc.).

• If you are a participant in a promotion that is co-sponsored by Teasdale Foods with one or more third-party co-sponsor(s), your opt-out will NOT stop our co-sponsor(s) from sending you marketing/promotional communications, and you must contact our co-sponsor(s) directly in order to opt out from its/their further use of your PII for direct marketing purposes.

We may also use information collected from cookies together with PII we have collected from our users. We do not, however, use cookies to access information on your computer or mobile device. Most web browsers are initially set to accept cookies, but you can change your browser settings to notify you when you are sent a cookie, giving you the ability to accept or reject it, or you can choose to routinely and manually delete cookies stored on your computer or mobile device.

We may also use “web beacons” (also known as “clear GIFs,” “pixel tags,” etc.) – which are small bits of code embedded in web pages or in emails – to deliver or communicate with cookies, to count users who have visited a web page, and to understand usage patterns. We may include web beacons in emails to help us recognize activities such as when an email was opened, how many times an email was forwarded, which links in the email were clicked on, etc. Web beacons cannot be declined when delivered via a regular web page.

6. OUR ADVERTISING POLICY

We do not allow unaffiliated third parties to display advertisements on our website.

7. PROTECTING CHILDREN

This website is directed to adults and is not directed to children under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect or use personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13.

8. LINKS TO OTHER SITES

For your convenience, our website may provide links to websites, products and services owned or operated by third parties (each, a “Linked Third-Party Product/Service”). Such linking does not mean, and should not be deemed or construed to mean, that we endorse or approve or are affiliated with a Linked Third-Party Product/Service. We neither control nor are responsible for any Linked Third-Party Product/Service. Specifically, we are not responsible for the data privacy and security policies or practices of the provider of a Linked Third-Party Product/Service. When you leave our website to visit a Linked Third-Party Product/Service, this Privacy Policy no longer applies, and any information collected from or about you by the provider of a Linked Third-Party Product/Service will be governed by and subject to the privacy policies and practices of that provider, which may be substantially different from our policies and practices. The provider of a Linked Third-Party Product/Service may set or use its own cookies, web beacons, etc. to your computer or mobile device, and may collect information from and about you and use the information in ways that we would not. You access a Linked Third-Party Product/Service entirely at your own risk. You should always read the privacy policy associated with a Linked Third-Party Product/Service before disclosing any personal information.

9. CHANGES TO PRIVACY POLICY

We will provide you with notice if the changes are material and, where required by applicable law, we will obtain your consent. Unless expressly otherwise agreed, all material changes will apply prospectively only.
