Our Commitment To Privacy
At Beetnik Foods we respect our customers and understand that you are concerned about privacy and the use of your personal information. We consider the information you choose to share with us personal and confidential. We provide this explanation about our information practices to show you our commitment to protect your privacy.

The Information We Collect
At the time you register on our site, make a purchase request or agree to participate in a promotion, we collect and store some or all of the following types of information:

Name
Address
E-mail address
Telephone number
Credit/Debit Card Information

We need this information to provide goods and services that you request, and we will use it to let you know of additional goods and services about which you might be interested. We may also use this information to customize your experience using our website.

We may ask you to submit information about other people if you order a gift to be sent directly to the recipient. In such circumstances, we will ask for the recipient's name, address, telephone number and e-mail address.

Beetnik Foods encourages all users of this Site to register for the mailing list, so that you can receive information on new products, etc. You may unsubscribe at any time by logging into your account and updating your email subscription settings.

We may automatically gather general statistical information about our website and visitors, such as IP addresses, browsers, pages viewed, number of visitors, goods and services purchased, transactions completed, etc. To do this, we use action tags and cookies provided by our site analytics and marketing  companies. Although these companies log the information coming from our site on our behalf, we authorize how that data may and may not be used.

For the purpose of enabling better website design and a better user experience, we employ Google Analytics (a web service by Google, Inc.) to track site traffic and provide aggregate reports of how the public interacts with our website. Session cookies are employed by Google Analytics in the form of client-side JavaScript code. In utilizing this analytics service, Beetnik Foods maintains its existing standards in regards to the sharing and disclosure of information, security and privacy safeguards for the data, and the data retention policy, each described below. Google Analytics analyzes website usage information automatically upon visits to the Beetnik Foods website(s). Users who do not wish to have their visit information collected by Google Analytics may opt-out by downloading a browser extension or by disabling cookies in their browser settings. Opting-out of web measurements will still permit users to access the full Beetnik Foods website, with all included information and functionality.

As part of our service, we use cookies to store and track information about you on our website. A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. Generally, we use cookies to remind us who you are and enable us to access your account information so you do not have to re-enter it on subsequent visits; gather statistical information about usage by registered or unregistered users, and research visiting patterns. If you disable cookies on your computer, you will not be able to purchase items from Beetnik Foods online.

The Way We Use Information
Because our goal is to provide products that best meet your needs, we evaluate your personal interactions with us in an effort to bring you the products which best suit your tastes. In addition, we use your information to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to statistically analyze site usage, to improve our content and product offerings and to customize our site's content, layout, and services.

We may use your information to deliver information to you that, in some cases, is targeted to your interests, such as targeted banners, new products, services and promotions. At times we may ask you to provide us voluntarily with additional information regarding your personal or business interests, experience or requests, which we may use to customize our products and services for you.

The email addresses that we collect are used by us to contact consumers for marketing purposes and are not shared with other organizations for commercial purposes unless you've requested to receive email offers from  those organizations.

When you supply us with your postal address or phone number you may receive periodic mailings or phone calls from us and you may receive mailings from other reputable companies. If you would rather not receive such offers, contact us to have yourself removed from our list.

If you place a request for products or services, we use your personal information to ship your order; if the products or services are from a retail partner, we may provide your relevant information to that retailer for purposes of the transaction. If you establish a credit account with us or our providers, we collect additional information, including billing information, credit card number and expiration date, and tracking information from checks or money orders.

We may also use or disclose information to resolve disputes or investigate problems. We may disclose or access information whenever we believe in good faith that the law so requires or if we otherwise consider it necessary to do so to maintain service and improve our products and services.

We may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our servers, to manage our website and to enhance our site based on the usage pattern data we receive.

We may disclose personally identifiable information you provide to third parties if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to:  (a) comply with legal process; (b) enforce the Agreement/Terms and Conditions; (c) respond to claims that any information you provide violates the rights of third parties; (d) protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Beetnik Foods, its users and/or the public; or (e) in the event that all or substantially all of Beetnik Foods’ assets are acquired by a third party. 

If you wish to change personally identifiable information that you have provided to us, please Contact Us.

Security
We use a variety of administrative, physical and technical controls designed to prevent others from unauthorized access to the personal information you provide to us, and we maintain procedures and technology designed for this purpose. We take several steps to protect the information we have about you, including the following:

We update and test our technology on a regular basis in order to improve the protection of customer information.

We require outside companies and independent contractors to whom we provide customer information for marketing, servicing or processing purposes to restrict the use of the information to those purposes and we prohibit independent use of such information.

Access to your information is controlled by strict internal procedures. We maintain policies about the proper physical security of workplaces and records.

Beetnik Foods uses no encryption (data scrambling) on certain portions of the Site, but uses encryption on portions where you are transmitting financial information, such as credit card information. When you are on any web site that asks you for confidential information, you should check to see if the information being transmitted is encrypted in order to increase the security of your information.

Children under 13
We do not knowingly collect or use personal information from children under 13 without containing verifiable consent from their parents. We have no way of distinguishing the age of individuals who address our website, and so we carry out the same Privacy Policy for individuals of all ages. If a child has provided us with personal information without parental or guardian consent, the parent or guardian should contact us to remove the information and opt out of promotional opportunities.
