Personal Information Collected
Use and Retention of Personal Information
It is Home Style Foods’ policy to maintain all personal information as confidential, regardless of the purpose for which it is submitted, and to use such personal information only for the following purposes:
- For the specific purpose for which it was volunteered (for example to submit a comment, receive account information, purchase products, apply for employment, etc.);
- To track our visitors’ use of the Sites for internal market research; and
- To notify our visitors of updates to the Sites or promotional product opportunities.
From time to time we may use the information we collect to notify you about other services we think you will find valuable and interesting such as updates to the Site. However, if you do not want to receive this information, you can let us know when you register by using the tick box provided.
Authorized third parties may need access to some of your personal information or that of your child under age 12 to provide the services for which you/your child provided such information. For example, if you purchase a product, we would use third party shippers to deliver the order to you and we would need to provide the shipper with your name and address. It is Home Style Foods’ policy to provide to third parties only that amount of personal information that they require to complete the requested service or transaction.
Given the global nature of both the Internet and Home Style Foods, using the Internet to collect and process Personal Data usually involves the transmission of data on an international basis. By browsing the Site and communicating electronically with us, you agree that we may export Personal Data to one or more of our offices in other countries and process it there in accordance with this policy. Although data may be held in countries that do not have strict data privacy laws, we do take steps to maintain the privacy and security of your Personal Data.
Protection of Children’s Privacy
Home Style Foods is very concerned about protecting children’s personal information. For this reason we limit the personal information we collect from children 12 and under to only what is necessary to respond to their online requests, such as a request for a screen saver, online newsletter, coupon or to enter a sweepstakes. Home Style Foods will delete the information from our system when the requested activity is completed. At times it may be necessary to ask the child to provide an email address of a parent so we can notify the parent or seek consent. We will not condition a child’s participation in any online activity on the child’s disclosure of more personal information than is reasonably necessary to participate in that activity. Parents are encouraged to regularly monitor and supervise their children’s on-line activities.
You have a right to review personal information about you or your child under age 12 that is held by Home Style Foods. To obtain a copy of your personal information or that of your child under age 12, or to request deletion of all personal information about you or such child in Home Style Foods’ possession, please submit your request in the “Contact Us“ section of saralee.com.
