Privacy Policy

 

Effective Date: October 10, 2016

Post Foods Canada Inc. (“Post Canada”) is concerned about online privacy issues and wants you to be familiar with how we collect, use and disclose any personal information that individually identifies you (e.g., your name, address, phone number, e-mail address, etc.). This Privacy Policy explains our online information practices and the choices you, as a visitor to this website, can make about the collection and use of your information.

What personal information do we collect?

We collect personally-identifiable information from you (such as your name, address, phone number, e-mail address, etc.) when you voluntarily provide it to us through a number of features available on this website, as described below.

When you use our Website we may ask you to provide personal information if you:

If you purchase or otherwise request a product, publication, or promotional offering from us or take advantage of a rebate or similar offer, you may be required to provide your contact and/or payment information (such as a credit card number) in order for us to process your request.

Your participation in any of these activities is voluntary and we will only use the personally-identifiable information that you provide for these activities for the purposes for which the information was provided. We may use the information you provide to respond to your questions or comments, to administer our promotions and sites, to fulfill your request, subscription, or order, or to otherwise provide or improve our products and services. We will not send you any online newsletter or similar e-mail communication unless you expressly consent to receive such a communication from us. We may, however, send you notices of changes to our Privacy Policy.

You may be given the opportunity to consent to receive future promotional communication from us. If you opt-in to receive such communications, we may use the information to communicate with you regarding our products, services, and promotions, to provide you with other information that you request, and/or to improve our product and service offerings. You will always have the opportunity to “unsubscribe” from receiving the e-mail or other communication at any time.

We do not require you to provide personally-identifiable information to play any games available on this website.

How do we gather data by automatic means?

Sometimes we use cookie technology, web beacons, and similar devices on our site to enhance functionality and navigation for our visitors. Information tracked through these mechanisms includes but is not limited to (1) your IP address, (2) the type of web browser and operating system being used, (3) the pages of the site a user visits, and (4) other Websites a user visited before visiting our site.

If you wish to disable cookies, refer to your browser help menu to learn how to disable cookies. Please note that if you disable cookies, you may be unable to access some customized features on our site. Cookies do not collect or contain your name or e-mail address.

Internet tags, graphic tags and similar web beacon type functions allow us to count the number of users who have visited a particular web page or to access certain cookies. We may use web beacons on our Websites to count users and to recognize users by accessing our cookies. Being able to access our cookies allows us to personalize our Website and improve your experience at our Website. We may also include web beacons in HTML-formatted e-mail messages that we send to determine which e-mail messages were opened. Like cookies, web beacons do not collect or contain your name or your e-mail address.

How do we share personal information?

Except as described below, we do not sell, transfer or otherwise disclose to third parties the personally-identifiable information we collect on this Website.

At times we provide your personal information to joint promotion partners and third parties who provide services on our behalf. These entities may use the information solely in conjunction with the specific promotion services they provide for us (e.g., fulfillment of an order, responding to your question or comment, providing a sweepstakes, prize, deployment of a consumer survey, investigation of a complaint, etc.).

We reserve the right to transfer any information we have about you in the event that we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets to a third party. We also reserve the right to share information within the family of companies owned by our parent company Post Holdings, Inc. This includes sharing information with our United States affiliate, Post Foods, LLC, for purposes such as consumer research, advertising, and marketing.

We reserve the right to disclose any personal information as needed if such information is requested by law enforcement agencies or if we are requested to do so by law, regulation, court order, or by a government entity. We also may disclose personal information to third parties if we have reason to believe that disclosing such information is necessary to conduct investigations of possible breaches of law, to cooperate in any legal investigation, or to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating the terms of use of our site. Further, we reserve the right to use your personal information to protect our rights, privacy, safety or property.

Links to Other Websites

Our site may contain links to the websites of our subsidiaries and affiliates, and to websites that are owned and operated by third parties. These other websites may have their own privacy policies and would not be governed by this Privacy Policy. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of websites owned and operated by any such subsidiaries, affiliates or third parties. Other websites may collect and treat information collected differently, so we encourage you to carefully read and review the privacy policy for each website you visit.

Chat Rooms and Message/Bulletin Boards

If you use chat rooms and message/bulletin boards that may be on our site, you should know that when you voluntarily disclose personally identifiable information (e.g., name, e-mail address, etc.) on a message/bulletin board, in a chat area, or other interactive area where personal information can be posted, the information can be collected and used by other internet users. This may result in unsolicited messages from other posters or parties. We undertake no obligations as to the security of information you voluntarily post in chat rooms and message/bulletin boards

Tell-a-Friend

This site may, from time to time, include a tell-a-friend application that makes it easy for you to forward information or materials from our site to friends or family by e-mail. In order to address your e-mail message, the application will ask you to input the recipient’s e-mail address and/or similar information (including your e-mail address). This information is only used by the application to address your message so that it can be properly sent. Please ensure that you only provide the email addresses of your friends who would not consider such messages to be spam.

Children’s Privacy

Some portions of our website may be directed to kids under 13 (excluding kids under 13 from Quebec). However, we do not knowingly collect personally-identifiable information from kids under 13 on our website, except in respect of certain contests. If a child 12 or under enters a contest and is selected to be eligible to win a prize, we will contact the parent (not the child) for prize fulfillment, including obtaining further information needed to award the prize and for any prize delivery. We do not use the child’s personal information for any purpose other than to complete the contest and we do not share the information with third parties except as described above in this Privacy Policy. We do not retain the child’s personally-identifiable information in our database once the contest in question is complete and prizes have been awarded.

We permit children under the age of 13 to contact us through the website “Contact Us” link with questions or comments. We request only the child’s first name, age and gender to ask a question or provide a comment. We do not respond to the child directly but from time to time will answer some of the questions/comments on our website. If your child under the age of 13 has a question or comment that they would like us to answer, please ask the question on their behalf using your own personal information.

This website is intended for use by residents of Canada only. All matters relating to this site are governed by the laws of the Province of Ontario and the laws of Canada applicable therein. If you are located outside of Canada, and you contact us, please be advised that any information you provide to us will be transferred to Canada and that by submitting information, you explicitly authorize its transfer.

How We Protect Personally Identifiable Information

The security of personally-identifiable information is important to us. We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect against unauthorized use, disclosure or access of the personally-identifiable information we collect on this Website.
