At Uncle Harry’s®, Inc. (“Uncle Harry’s” or the “Company”), we are committed to respecting the privacy rights of our customers, visitors, and other users of all our websites, including www.uncleharrysicecream.com (individually and collectively, the “Site”). We believe that it is important that you understand how we treat the information we receive from you. This Website Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) is intended to demonstrate our commitment to fair practices and the protection of privacy.

Types of Information Collected

We collect two types of information: Traffic Data and Personal Information.

Traffic Data

We automatically track and collect the following information about you when you visit our Site: 1) your IP address; 2) domain server; 3) type of computer; and 4) type of web browser (collectively, “Traffic Data”). Traffic Data is anonymous information that does not personally identify you, but is helpful for marketing purposes or for improving your experience on this Site. For example, we use this information for statistical purposes, such as measuring the average time spent on this Site and the pages viewed on this Site. We also use “cookies” (small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive) to help provide additional functionality to this Site and to help us accurately measure usage of this Site. In all cases in which cookies are used, your Personal Information will not be collected unless you expressly agree to provide it. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. Further information about cookies can be found at http://www.microsoft.com/info/cookies.htm. Uncle Harry’s® may share the traffic data it collects through this Site with third-party web service providers, third-party marketing companies, online ordering processors, Uncle Harry’s® employees, affiliates and its retailers.

Personal Information

In order for you to participate in certain activities or access certain services that we offer via this Site, we may require you to provide us with certain information that identifies you (“Personal Information”). We only collect Personal Information, including, but not limited to, names, addresses, telephone numbers, email addresses, birthdays, credit card information, and similar identifying information, when you voluntarily submit this information.

We may also collect Personal Information from you about a third party (e.g., our Site might allow you to send an electronic “greeting card” to a friend, in which case we will need that person’s name and e-mail address). We will use such information only for the specified purpose (e.g., to mail the greeting card) and we will not contact the third party again unless and until the third party contacts us.

If you communicate with us via e-mail, post messages to this Site, or otherwise complete on-line forms, surveys, orders or contest entries, any information provided may be collected as Personal Information. We may refer to your Personal Information to better understand your needs and how we can improve our products and services. We may also use your Personal Information to contact you. Finally, Uncle Harry’s® may share your Personal Information with third-party web service providers and online ordering processors in order to fulfill any activity requests, product orders or service requests that you make via this Site. For example, any purchases made through this Site may require disclosure of your Personal Information, your credit card information and information about the name and address of the person receiving the purchase. The credit card information may be subject to verification by the issuing credit card company or another company. Sales and shipping records will also be generated and maintained. Unless you give us permission at the time we collect such information, however, we will not use this information for any purpose except the fulfillment and record keeping of the transaction.

We do not otherwise sell or transfer your Personal Information to any third party.

We do not collect Sensitive Personal Information. Sensitive Personal Information includes information pertaining to racial origins, religious beliefs, and sexual orientation.

Children’s Privacy

UNCLE HARRY’S® DOES NOT SPECIFICALLY OR KNOWINGLY COLLECT INFORMATION ABOUT CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 13. WE DO NOT KNOWINGLY REQUEST, SOLICIT OR COLLECT PERSONAL INFORMATION FROM ANY PERSON WE KNOW TO BE UNDER THE AGE OF 13 WITHOUT PRIOR VERIFIABLE PARENTAL CONSENT. In the event that we receive actual knowledge that we have collected or received Personal Information from anyone under the age of 13 without the requisite and verifiable parental consent, we will delete that information from our data base as soon as practicable.

If Uncle Harry’s® collects Personal Information from children under the age of 13 with verifiable parental consent, Uncle Harry’s® will ensure that:

Uncle Harry’s® will maintain the security, confidentiality and integrity of the Personal Information collected from a child.
Confidentiality and Security of Personal Information

Except as otherwise provided in this Privacy Policy, we will keep your Personal Information private and will not share it with third parties, unless such disclosure is necessary to: 1) comply with a court order or other legal process; 2) protect your rights or our property; or 3) enforce our Terms and Conditions of Use.
