Your privacy is important. Here’s how we protect it.
This site is owned and operated by Bellisio Foods, Inc. Your privacy on the internet is of the utmost importance to us. At Bellisio Foods, Inc., we want to make your experience online satisfying and safe.
Because we are interested in your comments and you may choose to communicate with us, and because we may gather certain types of information about our users, we feel you should fully understand our policy and the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information.
WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT AND HOW DO WE USE IT?
We collect personal information from you (such as your name, address, phone number, e-mail address, etc.) only when you voluntarily provide it to us. Depending on the purpose for which the information was provided, 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 products and our services.
Here are the circumstances for which we might ask for personal information from our consumers through our website, the types of information we obtain and how we use the information:
If you contact us through this website, we may ask you for personal information such as your name, address, phone number, or e-mail address so that we can respond to your questions or comments. If you send us an e-mail, we will at least obtain your e-mail address.

- participate in a survey, a consumer research panel, or similar type of activity;
- ask to receive an online newsletter or other information or material from us; or

Your participation in any of these activities (and therefore your provision of personally identifiable information) is entirely voluntary. 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 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. If you do choose to receive any e-mail communication from us, you will always have the opportunity to “unsubscribe” from receiving the e-mail at any time.
From time to time, we are approached by reputable third party companies and organizations that provide products or services that we believe may be of interest to you. To extend these products or services to you, we may use your personal information (e.g. e-mail address) to send out notices on their behalf. We see this as a value-added service helping you find useful products and services. Our goal is to limit the notices and communications to those that we think you would appreciate receiving. Please note that all such mailing come strictly from Bellisio Foods, Inc. and your personal information is not shared with these other companies.
WHEN MIGHT WE PROVIDE OTHER PARTNERS WITH YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?
From time to time we may run a joint or co-sponsored program or promotion on our website with another company, organization, or other reputable third party; and as part of this event, collect and process personal information. If your personal information is being collected by or shared with a company other than Bellisio Foods, Inc. as part of the promotion, we will let you know this at the time your information is collected.
Periodically, we may run a promotion on our website that features the products or services of another company and we will give you the opportunity to opt in to receive information directly from that third party company. If any of these promotions are made available to children under 13, we will first obtain verifiable consent from the parent before sharing the child’s information.
We may share your personal information with other parties if you consent to us sharing the information with third parties.
We may also provide your personal information to third parties who provide services on our behalf. These parties may use the information solely in conjunction with the specific services they provide for us (e.g., 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 operate our website from guidelines established by the Children’s Advertising Review Unit and in compliance with the requirements of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998.
