This Privacy Policy describes:

  • Information that we collect when you interact with the Services
  • How we use and process the information that we collect
  • How we may share information with third parties
  • The security of your information
  • User Consent. PLEASE REVIEW THIS PRIVACY POLICY CAREFULLY. When you submit information to or through the Services, you consent to the collection and processing of your information as described in this Privacy Policy. By using the Services, you accept the terms of this Privacy Policy, our Terms of Use and consent to our collection, use, disclosure and retention of your information as described in this Privacy Policy. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ANY PART OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY OR OUR TERMS OF USE, YOU ARE NOT AUTHORIZED TO USE THE SERVICES.
  • Links to Other Sites. The Services may contain links and widgets related to third-party websites and services, such as social networks (a “Third Party Service”), with which we have no affiliation. A link to or other availability of any Third Party Service does not mean that we endorse it or the quality or accuracy of information presented on it. If you decide to visit a Third Party Service, you are subject to the privacy policy and practices of the third party that operates the Third Party Service and not this Privacy Policy. We encourage you to carefully review the legal and privacy notices of all other digital services that you visit.
  • Information We Collect. “Personal Information” generally means any information that can reasonably identify you as an individual, and any other information we associate with it. We collect categories of information, from different sources. We may collect the following Personal Information:

a. Profile information and other content you voluntarily provide us, which may include:

  • Contact information when you register on our Site, such as your name, street address, phone number, and/or email address; or when you provide your email address or other contact information to receive communications from us about our products.
  • Any content or contributions you post in a public space on the Site. This includes reviews, comments, videos and photos that you might submit. If you contact us through a social media site, we may collect your social media identifier.
  • Any information you provide in communications with us, such as via social media, email, text message, or our customer call center.
  • Transaction history, for instance if you make a purchase from our online store.
  • Payment information, such as when you make a purchase with us and we need your billing information to process the transaction. We do not access or store your full credit or debit card number.
  • Information that is passively collected when you use the Site, such as by third party analytics tools we use:
  • We may record certain information about visitors to our Site, including the web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, device and mobile ad identifiers, browser information, interaction with the Site, pages viewed, app usage, and other such information; we may collect similar information from emails you receive from us that can help us track which emails are opened and which links are clicked by recipients.
  • We use certain cookies, pixel tags and other technologies to help us understand how you use the Site and enable us to personalize your experience. To learn more about our use of cookies, please click here. We may ask advertisers or other third party partners to serve ads or services to your devices, which rely on cookies or similar technologies placed on our Site.
  • We may detect the physical location of your device by, for example, using GPS information collected by mobile apps or location information shared by your web browser. We collect this information for purposes of providing you with information about promotions or new products that may be of interest to you. We may use your device’s physical location to better understand how our Site and other services and functionality are being used. Should you wish to opt out of the collection of this information, please adjust the settings of your device or web browser so that information about your physical location is not sent to us or third parties by (a) disabling location services within the device settings; or (b) denying certain websites or mobile applications permission to access location information by changing the relevant preferences and permissions in your mobile device or browser settings. Please note that your location may be derived from your WiFi, Bluetooth, and other device settings. Please consult your device settings for further information.
  • We may receive information from third parties such as advertising and marketing partners, public databases, and social media platforms, to supplement the information we receive from our consumers. If we do so, this policy governs how we can use that information.
  • In addition to collecting Personal Information, we may collect information that does not identify you and is not associated with your Personal Information. We may also de-identify information so it no longer identifies you. We can aggregate and use such information (“Aggregated Data”) to engage in marketing and other activities in a manner that protects our consumers since it does not include their Personal Information. Aggregated Data may be derived from Personal Information, but is not considered Personal Information under the law if it does not directly or indirectly reveal a person’s identity.

CALIFORNIA CONSUMER PRIVACY ACT:

PRIVACY NOTICE FOR CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS

Effective Date: November 16, 2021

This California Privacy Policy describes Gooder Foods, Inc.’s (“Gooder Foods,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) practices regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of the personal information of California residents (“Consumers”), describes the rights of Consumers under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”), and explains how Consumers may contact Gooder Foods to exercise those rights. This policy only applies to the personal information of Consumers (i.e., California residents).

Consumer Rights This section describes certain rights of Consumers under the CCPA. For information on how Consumers may contact Gooder Foods to exercise these rights, please see the section below entitled, “How to Submit a Request” or click here.

Right to Know A Consumer has the right to request that a business disclose what personal information it collects, uses, discloses or sells. Specifically, a Consumer may request that a business that collects personal information about the Consumer disclose to the Consumer the following:

  1. The categories of personal information it has collected about that Consumer.
  2. The categories of sources from which the personal information is collected.
  3. The business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling personal information.
  4. The categories of non-affiliated entities with whom the business shares personal information.
  5. The specific pieces of personal information it has collected about that Consumer.

A Consumer may request that a business that sells the Consumer’s personal information, or that discloses it for a business purpose, disclose to that Consumer:

  1. The categories of personal information that the business collected about the Consumer.
  2. The categories of personal information that the business sold about the Consumer and the categories of third parties to whom the personal information was sold, by category or categories of personal information for each third party to whom the personal information was sold.
  3. The categories of personal information that the business disclosed about the Consumer for a business purpose.

Right to Request Deletion A Consumer has the right to request that a business delete any personal information about the Consumer which the business has collected from the Consumer. If it is necessary for Gooder Foods to maintain the personal information for certain purposes, we are not required to comply with your deletion request. If we determine that we will not delete your personal information when you request us to do so, we will inform you and tell you why we are not deleting it.

Right to Opt-Out of Sale of Personal Information Gooder Foods does not sell Consumers’ personal information. However, the collection of data through certain third-party cookies for Gooder Foods’ targeting advertising purposes may be considered a “sale” under the CCPA. While Gooder Foods does not sell Consumers’ personal information, we do use third party cookies for targeted advertising purposes. To opt-out of having your information shared with third party digital advertising vendors for this purpose, please refer to the section “How to Submit a Request” below or click here.

No Discrimination A Consumer has the right not to be discriminated against because the Consumer exercised any of the Consumer’s rights under the CCPA. Gooder Foods may charge a Consumer a different price or rate, or provide a different level or quality of goods or services to the Consumer, if that difference is reasonably related to the value provided to the Consumer by the Consumer’s data.

How to Submit a Request To exercise the rights described above, you must submit a verifiable Consumer request to us. You can do so by emailing us at privacy@goodles.com. Please include “CCPA” in the subject line and detail your request in the body.

You may submit a request as frequently as you would like, but we are not required to respond to requests to provide personal information to you more than twice in any 12-month period.

If you maintain an online account with us, we will verify your identity for a request through the normal account authentication process. To submit a verifiable Consumer request, you will be asked to provide certain information to help us verify your identity. Once you submit your request via email, we will require you to email us from the email address you previously provided to us or used to communicate with us.

You may make a verifiable Consumer request on behalf of your minor child. You may also designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf by submitting your authorization to us via a verified form of communication, such as through the email address you previously provided to us or previously used to communicate with us.

If we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request, we will not be able to comply with your request. We will inform you if we cannot verify your identity or authority. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable Consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
