This Privacy Policy describes our practices in connection with privacy and the Personally Identifiable Information that we collect through this website, the related mobile sites and mobile application(s), and selected other domains (the "Sites"). Except as indicated below, this Privacy Policy does not address the collection, use or disclosure of information by any of our affiliates or by other third parties on any websites other than the Sites. As used in this Agreement, "Cedar’s," "we," "us," and "our" shall mean Cedar’s Mediterranean Foods, Inc. and its subsidiaries and affiliates.

If you do not agree to all the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy, do not use the Sites. We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time and without prior notice. If we make a cha nge to this Privacy Policy, it will be effective as soon as we post it, and the most current version of this Privacy Policy will always be posted under the Privacy Policy tab of the www.cedarsfoods.com website.

1. What Types of Information Do We and Our Third Party Service Providers Collect From You?

Personally Identifiable Information (or "PII") is information that identifies you as an individual. We and our third party service providers collect your PII, such as your name, postal address, telephone number, e -mail address, and date of birth, when you voluntarily provide it to us or when your employer provides any such PII to us.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information (or "Non-PII") is aggregated information, demographic information and any other information that does not reveal your specific identity. We and our third party service providers may collect your Non-PII, including information about the device you are using in accessing and/or using the Sites, information from referring websites, and your interaction with the Sites.

Cookies and Other Technology A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent by Cedar’s to your Internet browser and stored on your computer's hard drive, and that delivers information about you and your activity on the Sites. We, our third party service providers and other third parties detailed below under "How Do We Use Information Collected From You?" may use cookies, pixel tags, web beacons, and other similar technologies to better serve you with more tailored information and facilitate your ongoing use of the Sites. We do not link the information we store in cookies to any personally identifiable information you submit while on our site. If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows you to decline the use of cookies. To learn more about cookies, please visit the third party site http://www.allaboutcookies.org/. Some browsers allow you to indicate that you would not like your online activities tracked, using “Do Not Track” indicators (“DNT Indicators”), however we are not obligated to respond to these indicators. Presently we are not set up to respond to DNT Indicators. This means that latent information about your online activities may be used by us to improve your use of our Sites, but such usage is consistent with the provisions of this Privacy Policy. Please note that Cedar’s may allow 3rd party advertisers that are presenting advertisements on some of our pages to set and access their cookies on your computer. Advertisers' use of cookies are subject to their own privacy policies, not the Cedar’s Privacy Policy.

IP Addresses are the Internet Protocol addresses of the computers that you are using. Your IP Address is automatically assigned to the computer that you are using by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). Your IP Address is identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever you visit the Sites, along with the time(s) of your visit(s) and the page(s) of the Sites that you visited. Collecting IP Addresses is standard practice on the Internet and is done automatically by many web sites.

2. How Do We and Our Third Party Service Providers Use Information Collected From You?

Personally Identifiable Information. We and our third party service providers may use your PII and any third party PII that you may provide, as applicable:

  • To send you important information regarding the Sites, such as certain changes to our terms, conditions, policies and/or other administrative information. Because this information may be material to your use of the Sites, you may not opt-out of receiving such communications.
  • To inform you of products, programs, services and promotions that we believe may be of interest to you.
  • To permit you to participate in sweepstakes, contests and similar promotions (collectively, "Promotions").
  • For our internal business purposes, such as data analysis, audits, developing new products, enhancing our website, improving our services, identifying usage trends and determining the effectiveness of our promotional campaigns.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information. Because your Non-PII does not personally identify you, we and our third party service providers may use such information for any purpose. The Non -PII collected about your visits to the Sites may be used by third parties in order to provide advertisements about goods an d services of interest to you. These third parties may also set cookies to assist with advertisement delivery services. If you would like to obtain more information about the practices of some of these third parties, or if you would like to make choices about their use of your information, please visit http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/ or http://www.aboutads.info/choices/.

IP Addresses. We and our third party service providers use IP addresses for purposes such as calculating Site usage levels, diagnosing server problems, and administering the Sites. Please note that we treat IP addresses, server log files and related information as Non-PII, except where we are required to do otherwise under applicable law. Accordingly, in general we may use and disclose IP Addresses for all the purposes for which we use and disclose Non-PII.

3. How Do We and Our Third Party Service Providers Share Your Personally Identifiable Information With Others?

We and our third party service providers may disclose PII to our affiliates, so that they also may use such PII for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy, or as we believe to be appropriate: (a) under applicable law, including laws outside your country of residence; (b) to comply with legal process; (c) to respond to requests from public and government authorities, including public and government authorities outside your country of residence; (d) to enforce our terms and conditions; (e) to protect our operations and/or those of any of our affiliates; (f) to protect our rights, privacy, safety and/or property, and/or that of our affiliates, you and/or others; (g) to permit us to pursue available remedies and/or limit the damages that we may sustain; and (h) for recordkeeping purposes.

4. Can Our Third Party Service Providers Collect Personally Identifying Information About Your Online Activities Over Time and Across Websites?

We use commercially reasonable efforts to restrict third party usage of your PII for the limited purpose of fulfilling their contractual obligations with us. We also use commercially reasonable efforts to require that such information be destroyed at such time when our relationship with a third party is terminated, unless required for their records and auditing purposes, and then only what is necessary for such purposes may be retained. From time to time we work with a third party that you have selected to interface with, and s uch third party retains the rights to the data that you voluntarily provide, which may contain your PII. In such cases, our rights to use information about you is limited, and where we do not own and control the data, it is more likely that your PII may be collected over time, and possibly used to track your online activities across websites. You should carefully read the Privacy Policies of any third party service provider who directs you to our Sites and services. YOU AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF THIRD PARTY SITES AND RESOURCES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, YOUR USE OF ANY THIRD PARTY CONTENT, INFORMATION, DATA, ADVERTISING, PRODUCTS, OR OTHER MATERIALS ON OR AVAILABLE THROUGH SUCH THIRD PARTY SITES AND RESOURCES, IS AT YOUR OWN RISK AND IS SUBJECT TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE APPLICABLE TO SUCH SITES AND RESOURCES.

5. Other Important Notices Regarding Our Privacy Practices.

Forums and Profiles. We and our third party service providers may make available through the Sites certain services (for example, message boards, chat functionality, "profile pages" and blogs) to which you may be able to post information and materials. Please note that any information you provide in connection with such services may become public, and may be available to visitors to the Sites and to the general public, including without limitation the Ratings and Reviews that accompany many restaurant listings and the comment s section of our blog posts. We urge you to exercise discretion and caution when deciding to disclose your PII, and/or any other information and/or materials, on the Sites. NEITHER WE, NOR ANY OF OUR THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS, NOR ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY DULY AUTHORIZED BY US AND/OR BY OUR THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS, IS OR SHALL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY USE BY ANY UNAUTHORIZED PERSON OR ENTITY OF ANY PII YOU DISCLOSE THROUGH THE SITES.

Third Party Sites. Except as expressly set forth herein, this P rivacy Policy does not address, and neither we nor our third party service providers are responsible for, the privacy, information or other practices of other websites and/or any third parties, including without limitation any of our affiliates and/or any third party operating any site to which the Sites contains a link. The inclusion of a link to a third party website on the Sites does not imply endorsement of the linked site by us or by our affiliates. Please note that your access and/or use of any third party websites, including by providing any information, materials and/or other content to such sites, is entirely at your own risk.

Security. We and our third party service providers use reasonable organizational, technical and administrative measures to protect PII under our control. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or data storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Please do not send us sensitive information through email. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is not secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any account you might have with us has been compromised), you must immediately notify us of the problem by contacting us in accordance with the "Contacting Us" section below. (Note that if you choose to notify us via physical mail, this will delay the time it takes for us to respond to the problem.)

Unsubscribe. If you do not wish to receive marketing -related emails from us, you may unsubscribe from receiving them by clicking on the "unsubscribe" link at the bottom of any of those emails.

Retention Period. We and our third party service providers will retain PII for the period reasonably necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law.
