Any information gathered is stored by Dare Foods within North America.
Consumers: Dare Foods may collect personal information about consumers when they submit information to our Marketing Platform, call our Consumer Services Contact Centre or otherwise communicate with us (e.g. to enter a contest, request information or mailings, buy a product or service, participate in a survey, complete a review, or any other interaction with Dare Foods).
Third Parties: In limited circumstances, Dare Foods may collect personal information about third parties, but only once provided by a consumer. Dare Foods does not solicit third party personal information. For example, some of our websites offer visitors the ability to send information to a friend by email (a recipe). A visitor may provide us with his or her friend’s name and email address. Please note that Dare Foods will use such information only for the specified purpose (e.g. to send the recipe). Dare Foods will not contact the third party again or use or disclose the third parties’ personal information without the knowledge and consent of the third party. Children: Dare Foods is committed to protecting the privacy of children and we do not knowingly solicit information from children under the age of 13. If a child under the age of 13 wishes to send us personal information, he or she is required to provide Dare Foods with his or her parent’s or guardian’s email address so that we can obtain permission. If a child has already provided us with personal information, his or her parent or guardian may contact us for the purpose of correcting or deleting this information (please see, “Who to Contact” in Section 10 below). If we discover that a child under the age of 13 has provided us with personal information, we will undertake all reasonable efforts to delete such personal information. We encourage parents of children under the age of 13 to regularly check and monitor their children’s use of email and the Dare Foods websites.
Dare Foods identifies the purposes for which personal information is collected at or before the time the personal information is collected. Some of the identified purposes for which Dare Foods currently collects, uses or discloses personal information are described in Section 3 above.
The knowledge and consent of an individual are required for the collection, use, or disclosure of his or her personal information, except as permitted by law. In obtaining consent, Dare Foods uses reasonable efforts to ensure that an individual is advised of the identified purposes for which personal information will be used or disclosed. In determining the appropriate form of consent, Dare Foods takes into account the sensitivity of the personal information and the reasonable expectations of a reasonable person. An individual may withdraw consent at any time, subject to legal or contractual restrictions and reasonable notice. At that time, Dare Foods will advise the individual of the implications of such withdrawal.
Dare Foods limits the collection of personal information, both the amount and the type of information, which is necessary for the purposes identified by Dare Foods. Dare Foods collects personal information by fair and lawful means, and not by misleading or deceiving individuals about the purpose for which information is being collected.
Dare Foods does not use or disclose personal information for purposes other than the identified purposes for which it is collected, except with the consent of the individual or as required or permitted by law. Dare Foods retains personal information only as long as is necessary to fulfil the identified purposes.
Personal information held by Dare Foods is as accurate, complete and up-to-date as is necessary for the purposes for which it is to be used. Information will be sufficiently accurate, complete, and up-to-date to minimize the possibility that inappropriate information may be used to make a decision about an individual. Dare Foods does not routinely update personal information, unless such process is necessary to fulfil the identified purposes. We rely on individuals to inform us of any changes to their personal information. To update your personal information, please see Section 10 below.
Dare Foods protects personal information by security safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the information. Dare Foods uses reasonable efforts and security measures to protect personal information against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use, modification, disposal or destruction.
In response to the written request from an individual, Dare Foods will inform the individual of the existence, use, and disclosure of his or her personal information and, subject to certain exceptions provided by law, will give the individual a reasonable opportunity to review the personal information collected by Dare Foods who will make every reasonable effort to provide personal information in an understandable form within a reasonable time, generally within 30 days, and at minimal cost to the individual. An individual will be able to challenge the accuracy and completeness of the information and have it amended as appropriate. If access is denied, Dare Foods will inform the requesting individual in writing.
Dare Foods does not, and will not, sell any of your personal information.
In order to provide you with a product, service or information, you may voluntarily submit personal information to us for purposes such as registering for our services, obtaining information, corresponding with us, and participating in contests and surveys. Voluntarily submission of your personal information is deemed as explicit consent to collect, use, or disclose your personal information in accordance with this policy. We may combine and store personal information about your use of our Marketing Platform and the online information you have provided with certain other online and offline information we may have collected.
If you subscribe to any of our e-newsletters or other similar website services, Dare Foods may send you email communications with information that may be useful to you, including information about the products and services of Dare Foods, its affiliates and other third parties with whom we have a commercial relationship. We will include instructions on how to unsubscribe and inform us of your preferences if you decide you do not want to receive any future marketing or promotional emails from Dare Foods. In addition, at any time you may let us know that you wish to discontinue such mailings or contact by contacting the Consumer Care team. If you opt-out of receiving emails about recommendations or other information we think may interest you, Dare Foods reserves the right to still send you transactional emails about your account, including confirmation of payment or any other necessary Services you have requested or received from us.
Under California Civil Code Section 1798.83 (also known as Information-Sharing Disclosure, Shine the Light), if you are a California resident and your business relationship with us is primarily for personal, family, or household purposes, you may request certain data regarding our disclosure, if any, of your personal information to third parties for the third-parties’ direct marketing purposes. To make such a request under this California law, please contact us in accordance with Section 10. You may make such a request up to once per calendar year. In accordance with this California law, we will provide to you, by e-mail, a list of the categories of any of your personal information disclosed to third parties for their direct marketing purposes during the immediately preceding calendar year, along with the third parties’ names and addresses and any other information required by this California law.
If we desire to process any of such personal information for cases that require your prior consent pursuant to the GDPR, we will not do so without obtaining your prior consent in accordance with the GDPR.
To the extent we transfer any personal information from any member-country of the European Union to any other country, we will satisfy the conditions required for such transfer under the GDPR and other applicable laws. For example, depending on the circumstance, we may implement any of the following measures to satisfy such conditions: (a) appropriate safeguards to protect such personal information, including binding corporate rules, standard data protection clauses, an approved code of conduct, an approved certification mechanism, or any other measure set forth in the GDPR, provided that, in each such case, we will implement the applicable measure in accordance with the requirements of the GDPR; or (b) a procedure or measure to confirm that: (i) such transfer is necessary or that you have explicitly consented to such transfer; (ii) such the transfer is not repetitive, concerns only a limited number of data subjects, and is necessary for the purposes of compelling legitimate interests pursued by us; and (iii) we have satisfied the additional requirements set forth in the GDPR.
