Privacy Policy

This site (“Milk”) has a policy to respect and protect the privacy of its users. This privacy policy statement tells you how we collect information from you and how we use it. Using the Internet should be a fun experience and we want to help you make it so.

POLICY FOR INDIVIDUALS 13 YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER

Milk does not require you to share any personal information about yourself in order to visit our website. We do not collect any personal information from you unless you voluntarily provide it. For example, we may request personal information when you apply for a Refuel Grant, or request brochures or information on diet and exercise, or when you register to enter a promotion such as a sweepstakes or contest. The personal information that we ask for is usually your name, e-mail address and birth date.

Personal information you provide will not be disclosed to third parties other than as described herein without your consent; however, Milk may share aggregate information about our visitors (for example, what percentages of our visitors are male and female) with advertisers, business partners, sponsors, and other third parties in order to customize the content of our site to deliver a better experience for our visitors.

We may use third parties to help us operate our business and the site, or administer activities on our behalf, and may share your information with these third parties for those limited purposes. We may share your information with joint sponsors of contests, sweepstakes and games offered on the site.

Milk may disclose personal information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) Milk’s rights or property, other Milk users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. Milk may also disclose user information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.

OPTING OUT

Information provided by you at the time of registration or submission may be used for marketing and promotional purposes by Milk. To keep you in control of your personal information and the communications directed to you, you may opt out of receiving communications from Milk about new features or services. If you object to such use for any reason, you may stop that use by e-mail request to milk@webershandwick.com.

MILK DOES NOT KNOWINGLY COLLECT PERSONAL INFORMATION FROM KIDS (INDIVIDUALS UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE)

The information included on www.gotchocolatemilk.com is geared towards users aged 13 years and older. The Website is not directed at children under the age of 13. Children are not permitted to use www.gotchocolatemilk.com or to submit or post information on the website, and are not eligible to participate in activities (e.g. sweepstakes, contests, Refuel Grant program) on the website.

Milk do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from children under the age of 13. If you believe that your child has provided personal information to us, please contact us. If we become aware that we have inadvertently received information from a child under the age of 13, we will delete the information from our records.

USE OF COOKIES AND COLLECTION OF INFORMATION AUTOMATICALLY

Milk collects and stores certain non-personal information automatically whenever a user visits our site. For example, Milk automatically collects Internet protocol (IP) addresses (a number that is used to connect your computer to the Internet) and other information, such as browser type and version and the operating system that you use, for the purposes of system registration, to report aggregate information to our promotional partners, to audit the use of our site.

Milk also uses cookie and tracking technology on our website. Cookie and tracking technology is useful for gathering information such as browser type and operating system, tracking the number of visitors to the web site, and understanding how visitors use the site. Cookies can also help tailor the site to visitors’ needs and help customize the site for visitors. For example, we may use cookies to make sure you don’t see the same information repeatedly. Also, if you have elected to store your favorite recipes or activities at the site, cookies help us do this. The site may also use cookies to deliver content specific to your interests and for other similar purposes. You can, of course, disable cookies on your computer by indicating this in the preferences or options menus in your browser, and most browsers will allow you to stop accepting new cookies, be notified when you receive a new cookie, and disable existing cookies.

We do not normally link IP addresses or information collected to anything personally identifiable, which means that a user’s session will be logged, but the user ordinarily remains anonymous to us. However, if you previously provided personally identifiable information, IP addresses and cookies may be tied to such information. We can and will use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our terms of service or to protect our service, site, customers, or others. We may also share aggregate (not individual), cookie and tracking information with third parties for other purposes.

LINKS TO OTHER SITES

Users should be aware that when they are on Milk, they can be directed to other sites, the content and practices of which are beyond our control. There are links to other sites from Milk pages that take you outside our service. This includes links from partners that may use Milk or the Milk’s logo as part of a co-branding agreement.

These other sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data, or solicit personal information. Please keep in mind that whenever you give out personal information online that information can be collected and used by people you don’t know. While Milk strives to protect their users’ personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online and you do so at your own risk.

Milk’s policy does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet, and therefore beyond Milk’s control, and is not to be applied in any manner contrary to applicable law or governmental regulation.

SECURITY

The importance of security for all personally identifiable information associated with our guests is of utmost concern to us. We exercise great care in providing secure transmission of your information from your computer to our servers. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, Milk can’t ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk.
