CLASSIC FOODS ONLINE PRIVACY STATEMENT

Classic Foods is committed to protecting your privacy. Please read the Classic Foods Online Privacy Statement below and also any supplemental information listed to the right for additional details about particular Classic Foods sites and services that you may use.

This Classic Foods Online Privacy Statement applies to data collected by Classic Foods through the majority of its websites and services, as well as its offline product support services. It does not apply to those Classic Foods sites, services and products that do not display or link to this statement or that have their own privacy statements.

Collection of Your Personal Information
In order to access some Classic Foods services, you will be asked to sign in with an e-mail address and password, which we refer to as your credentials. In most cases, these credentials will be part of the Classic Foods Network, which means you can use the same credentials to sign in to many different Classic Foods sites and services. By signing in on one Classic Foods site or service, you may be automatically signed into other Classic Foods sites and services. If you access our services via a mobile phone, you may also use your telephone number and a PIN as an alternative credential to your username and password. As part of creating your credentials, you may also be requested to provide questions and secret answers, which we use to help verify your identity and assist in resetting your password, as well as an alternate email address. Some services may require added security, and in these cases, you may be asked to create an additional security key.

We may collect information about your visit, including the pages you view, the links you click and other actions taken in connection with Classic Foods sites and services. We also collect certain standard information that your browser sends to every website you visit, such as your IP address, browser type and language, access times and referring website addresses. When you receive newsletters or promotional e-mail from Classic Foods, we may use web beacons (described below), customized links or similar technologies to determine whether the e-mail has been opened and which links you click in order to provide you more focused e-mail communications or other information.

Sharing of Your Personal Information
Except as described in this statement, we will not disclose your personal information outside of Classic Foods and its controlled subsidiaries and affiliates without your consent. Some Classic Foods services may be co-branded and offered in conjunction with another company. If you register for or use such services, both Classic Foods and the other company may receive information collected in conjunction with the co-branded services. We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of mailings, providing customer support, or performing statistical analysis of our services. Those companies will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose. We may access and/or disclose your personal information if we believe such action is necessary to: (a) comply with the law or legal process served on Classic Foods; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Classic Foods (including the enforcement of our agreements); or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Classic Foods services or members of the public. Communication Preferences You can stop the delivery of future promotional e-mail from Classic Foods sites and services by following the specific instructions in the e-mail you receive.

Security of Your Personal Information
Classic Foods is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access, which are located in controlled facilities. When we transmit highly confidential information (such as a credit card number or password) over the Internet, we protect it through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol. If a password is used to help protect your accounts and personal information, it is your responsibility to keep your password confidential. Do not share this information with anyone. If you are sharing a computer with anyone you should always choose to log out before leaving a site or service to protect access to your information from subsequent users. Collection and Use of Children's Personal Information Many Classic Foods sites and services are intended for general audiences and do not knowingly collect any personal information from children. When a Classic Foods site does collect age information, and users identify themselves as under 13, the site will either block such users from providing personal information, or will seek to obtain consent from parents for the collection, use and sharing of their children's personal information. We will not knowingly ask children under the age of 13 to provide more information than is reasonably necessary to provide our services. Please note that if you grant consent for your child to use Classic Foods services, this will include such general audience communication services as e-mail, instant messaging, and online groups, and your child will be able to communicate with, and disclose personal information to, other users of all ages. Parents can change or revoke the consent choices previously made, and review, edit or request the deletion of their children's personal information.  For example, on MSN and Windows Live, parents can visit Account Services, and click on “Permission for kids.”  If we change this privacy statement in a way that expands the collection, use or disclosure of children's personal information to which a parent has previously consented, the parent will be notified and we will be required to obtain the parent's additional consent. We encourage you to talk with your children about communicating with strangers and disclosing personal information online.

Use of Cookies
Classic Foods websites use "cookies" to enable you to sign in to our services and to help personalize your online experience. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies contain information that can later be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Classic Foods websites use cookies to store your preferences and other information on your computer in order to save you time by eliminating the need to repeatedly enter the same information and to display your personalized content and appropriate advertising on your later visits to these sites. When you sign in to a site using your credentials, the Classic Foods Network stores your unique ID number, and the time you signed in, in an encrypted cookie on your hard disk. This cookie allows you to move from page to page at the site without having to sign in again on each page. When you sign out, these cookies are deleted from your computer. The Passport Network also uses cookies to improve the sign in experience. For example, your e-mail address may be stored in a cookie that will remain on your computer after you sign out. This cookie allows your e-mail address to be pre-populated, so that you will only need to type your password the next time you sign in. If you are using a public computer or do not otherwise want this information to be stored, you can select the appropriate radio button on the sign-in page, and this cookie will not be used. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to sign in or use other interactive features of Classic Foods sites and services that depend on cookies.

Use of Web Beacons
Classic Foods Web pages may contain electronic images known as Web beacons - sometimes called single-pixel gifs - that may be used to assist in delivering cookies on our sites and allow us to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services. We may include Web beacons in promotional e-mail messages or our newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon. Classic Foods may also employ Web beacons from third parties in order to help us compile aggregated statistics and determine the effectiveness of our promotional campaigns. We prohibit Web beacons on our sites from being used by third parties to collect or access your personal information.

Changes to This Privacy Statement
We will occasionally update this privacy statement to reflect changes in our services and customer feedback. If there are material changes to this statement or in how Classic Foods will use your personal information, we will notify you either by prominently posting a notice of such changes prior to implementing the change or by directly sending you a notification. We encourage you to periodically review this statement to be informed of how Classic Foods is protecting your information.
