2.Personal Information That May Be Collected

When you sign up for or use the Site or Service, we may request a user to provide certain personal information, which may include: first and last name, postal address, e-mail address, user name, password, telephone number, credit/debit card number and expiration date (or other payment-method information) and other information about a specific individual that identifies the individual (“Personal Information”).

3.Uses Made of the Information

(a)Limited Uses Identified. Food Origin uses your Personal Information to deliver the Services to you. For example, Food Origin uses Personal Information to reply to inquiries, handle complaints, and to request your participation in surveys. We may also use Personal Information for the internal operational and administrative purposes of the Service.  We may enter Personal Information into our contact management database and may use such database to send you marketing materials and to contact you regarding your interest in other Food Origin products and services.

(b)Aggregate Information. We will also create statistical, aggregated data relating to our users and the Service for analytical purposes.  Aggregated data is derived from Personal Information but in its aggregated form it does not relate to or identify any particular customer or individual or any specific user’s data.  This data is used to understand our customer base and to develop, improve and market our services.

(c)Online Advertising. Some companies that help Food Origin deliver interactive on-line advertising, such as banner ads, may collect and use information about our customers to help us better understand the types of advertising or promotions that are most appealing to our customers. After it is collected the information is aggregated so it is not identifiable to a specific individual. [If you don’t want to receive online advertising you can opt out.]

4.Disclosure of the Information

(a)Food Origin’s Disclosure of Personal Information:  Food Origin will not disclose Personal Information to any third party except to our third party service providers that we engage to provide services to us (“Contractors”) who are bound by written obligations of confidentiality], or as described under “Permitted Disclosures” below. 

(b)Web Tracking Information:  We disclose information obtained through the tracking technologies described below to Contractors, in order to analyze the performance of the Service and the behavior of users, and to operate and improve the Service.

5.Use of Computer Tracking Technologies

(a)No Tracking of Personal Information. The Site is not set up to track, collect or distribute Personal Information not entered by visitors. Through web site access logs Food Origin does collect clickstream data and HTTP protocol elements, which generate certain kinds of non-identifying site usage data, such as the number of hits and visits to our sites. This information is used for internal purposes by technical support staff for research and development, user analysis and business decision making, all of which improve our Service. The statistics garnered, which contain no Personal Information and cannot be used to gather such information, may also be provided to third parties.

(b)Use of Cookies. Food Origin, or our Contractors, collects non-identifiable and personal information through the use of various technologies, including "cookies". A cookie is an alphanumeric identifier that a Web site can transfer to customer's hard drive through customer's browser. The cookie is then stored on customer's computer as an anonymous tag that identifies the customer's computer, but not the customer. Cookies may be sent by Food Origin or its Contractors. Customer can set its browser to notify customer before a cookie is received, giving an opportunity to decide whether to accept the cookie. Customer may also set its browser to turn off cookies; however, some Web sites may not then work properly.

(c)Use of Web Beacon Technologies. Food Origin may also use Web beacon or other technologies to better tailor the Site to provide better customer service. If these technologies are in use, when a visitor accesses these pages of the Site, a non-identifiable notice of that visit is generated which may be processed by Food Origin or by its Contractors. Web beacons usually work in conjunction with cookies. If customer does not want cookie information to be associated with customer's visits to these pages, customer can set its browser to turn off cookies; however, Web beacon and other technologies will still detect visits to these pages, but the notices they generate cannot be associated with other non-identifiable cookie information and are disregarded.

(d)Collection of Non-Identifiable Information. Food Origin may collect non-identifiable information from user visits to the Site in order to provide better customer service. Examples of such collecting include: traffic analysis, such as tracking of the domains from which users visit or tracking numbers of visitors; measuring visitor activity on the Site; Web site and system administration; user analysis; and business decision making. Such information is sometimes known as "clickstream data." Food Origin or its Contractors may use this data to analyze trends and statistics.

(e)Collection of Personal Information. Food Origin collects Personal Information from customer during a transaction. Food Origin may extract some Personal Information about that transaction in a non-identifiable format and combine it with other non-identifiable information, such as clickstream data. This information is used and analyzed only at an aggregate level (not at an individual level) to help Food Origin understand trends and patterns. This information is not reviewed at an individual level.

10.Your California Privacy Rights (California Residents)

On September 27, 2013, California enacted A.B. 370, amending the California Online Privacy Protection Act to require website operators like us to disclose how we respond to "Do Not Track Signals"; and whether third parties collect personally identifiable information about users when they visit us.

(1)  We do not track our customers over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore we do not monitor, recognize, or honor any opt-out or do not track mechanisms, including general web browser “Do Not Track” settings and/or signals.

(2) We do not authorize the collection of personally identifiable information from our users for third party use through advertising technologies without separate user consent.

California Civil Code Section 1798.83 also permits our customers who are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of Personal Information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes.  To make such a request, please send an email to [].  Please note that we are only required to respond to one request per customer each year.
