All computers have the ability to decline cookies. This can be done by activating the setting on your browser which enables you to decline the cookies. Please note that should you choose to decline cookies, you may be unable to access particular parts of our Site. We track our users across time or across websites. However, our Site does respond to web browser “do not track” signals and other mechanisms that provide consumers the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of personally identifiable information about an individual consumer’s online activities over time and across third-party websites. If you wish to opt-out of this online tracking, please visit the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Site available at http://www.aboutads.info/choices/, the Network Advertising Initiative’s Site available at http://www.optout.networkadvertising.org, and/or Oracle’s Site at https://www.oracle.com/legal/privacy/privacy-policy.html.

We do not use flash cookies on our Site.

However, while some websites allow users to decline cookies, some of our third party service providers, who provide data analytics services through our Site, do not necessarily respond to do-not-track requests. The third-party service providers that we use include, but are not limited to, Google Analytics, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter; these third-parties do not necessarily respond to your do-not-track requests. However, these third-party service providers do use cookies to collect standard internet log information and Site user behavior information. The information generated by the cookie about your use of our Site (including your IP address and geo-location) is transmitted to these service providers. This information is then used by the service providers to evaluate our users’ use of our Site and to compile statistical reports on Site activity for Newman’s Own. For more information on how these third-party service providers respond to do-not-track requests, please review their privacy policies and terms of use.

Third Party Access to Your Personally Identifiable Information
Newman’s Own Foundation will not sell, rent, or lease your personally identifiable information to others. Unless we have your permission, we will only share the personally identifiable information you provide online with other Newman’s Own Foundation entities and/or business partners who are acting on our behalf for the uses described in this Privacy Policy; provided, however, we will cooperate fully should a situation arise where we are required by law or requested by a law enforcement agency to provide information about a user of this Site.

Information Security and Quality
Newman’s Own Foundation uses commercially reasonable security measures to protect our Site’s user’s information. Nonetheless, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure and therefore we cannot guarantee the security of data sent to us electronically on our Site, and transmission of such data is therefore entirely at your own risk.

Protection of Social Security Numbers
Although we do not collect Social Security numbers through this Site, we may collect Social Security numbers in connection with our business. We comply with applicable law in regard to our collection, storage, and disposal of Social Security numbers. First, we take what we believe to be reasonable physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect the confidentiality of Social Security numbers. Second, we limit access to Social Security numbers to only those persons with a legitimate business purpose. Third, we provide appropriate training to employees and prohibit the unlawful disclosure of Social Security numbers. Finally, we protect the confidentiality of Social Security numbers by using appropriate security measures and destroying, erasing, or making unreadable Social Security numbers prior to disposal. These procedures are periodically reviewed to help maintain the confidentiality of Social Security numbers.
