Use of Your Information
The information that we collect and store relating to you is primarily used to enable us to provide our products to you in the best possible manner. In addition, we may use the information for the following purposes:
- To provide you with information relating to our products;
- To provide third parties with statistical information about the users of our web site;
- To monitor and conduct an analysis of our web site traffic and usage patterns;
- To analyze trends.
Please note that Newman’s Own may use User Communications for any purpose whatsoever, including, without limitation, reproduction, transmission, disclosure, publication, broadcast, development, manufacturing, and/or marketing in any manner whatsoever for any or all commercial or non-commercial purposes.
We will not use your information to target, segment, or profile individuals based on health (including pregnancy), negative financial status or condition, political affiliation or beliefs, racial or ethnic origin, religious or philosophical affiliation or beliefs, sex life or sexual orientation, trade union membership, data relating to alleged or actual commission of a crime, or for any unlawful or discriminatory purpose or in a manner that would be inconsistent with your reasonable expectation of privacy.
Newman’s Own’s web site uses commercially reasonable security measures to protect our web site users’ information. Nonetheless, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure and therefore we cannot guarantee the security of data sent to us electronically on our web site, and transmission of such data is therefore entirely at your own risk.
Disclosing Your Information
Where applicable, we may disclose your personal information to any affiliated business entities or third parties necessary to provide products to you or to conduct analytics on our users and product preferences and purchasing patterns. This includes, where
applicable, our subsidiaries, our holding company and its other subsidiaries (if any), as well as third parties involved in providing our products to you. We may also disclose your personal information to other third parties, such as:
- Where we sell any or all of our business and/or our assets to a third party, whether through bankruptcy proceedings or other sale or merger.
- Where we are legally required to disclose your information.
- When we are contractually obligated to disclose it.
- To third-party service providers that we employ to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance and targeted advertising, processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes unless permitted by law to do so.
Otherwise, we do not share, sell, or rent your personal information to third parties unless it is to provide you with our products or conduct analytics and/or market research on our customer base and product purchasing trends. Information submitted to us is also available to employees managing this information for purposes of contacting you or sending you e-mails based on your requesting information from us through our web site.
Communications with Newman’s Own
There is a section of our web site where forms require your name and e-mail address. These forms provide the ability to opt-in to receiving future emails of any sort from Newman’s Own. If you opt-in to receiving email communications from us, then we may send information to you about our products.
You may review and change your contact information and/or opt-in choices with us at any time by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link or similar found at the bottom of emails sent via our system.
In order to determine a user’s ability to receive HTML email in addition to whether or not an email has been opened, Newman’s Own includes a “web beacon” in a majority of the HTML email messages we send. A web beacon (actually a small .gif image) is activated when an HTML email is opened via a request for the image on our servers.
This capability helps Newman’s Own send email in a format users can read and enables Newman’s Own to track the aggregate number of emails opened. The web beacon does not collect any personally identifiable information. Users that do not want to receive email messages with web beacons can choose to receive their emails in text (non-HTML) format.
We also have the capability to track when a URL has been clicked inside of an email message sent by our system. We use this functionality to track which links were clicked and in what quantity, as well as the aggregate number of links clicked. This click tracking functionality does not collect any personally identifiable information.

By accessing third party web sites through our web site, you are consenting to the terms and privacy policies of those web sites. We do not accept any responsibility or liability for their policies whatsoever as we have no control over them.
