Teasdale Foods Privacy Policy

Effective Date: This policy was updated and became immediately effective on April 1, 2019.

This Privacy Policy applies to teasdalesimplyespecial.com and any other websites, applications, online services, and other interactive features or downloads that post a link to this Privacy Policy, whether accessed via computer, mobile device or otherwise (the “Site”). The Site is owned or controlled by Teasdale Foods, Inc. or one of its subsidiary or affiliated companies (collectively, “Teasdale”). This Privacy Policy only covers information collected at the Site. Please review this Privacy Policy carefully.




Teasdale may ask you to provide personally identifiable information, which is information that identifies you as a specific individual, such as your full name, email address or street address (“Personal Information”).

The Site is for general audiences and is not intended for use by anyone younger than the age of 13.  We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from individuals younger than age 13.


In addition to any Personal Information or other information that you choose to submit to the Site, we and our third-party service providers, including any third party content providers, may use a variety of technologies that automatically or passively collect certain information whenever you visit or interact with the Site (“Usage Information“). Usage Information may include the browser and operating system you are using, the URL or advertisement that referred you to our Site, the search terms you entered into a search engine that lead you to our Site (if applicable), all of the areas within our Site that you visit, and the time of day you visited the Site, among other information. We may use Usage Information for a variety of purposes, including enhancing or otherwise improving the Site and our products and services. In addition, we automatically collect your IP address or other unique identifier (“Device Identifier”) for any computer, mobile phone or other device you may use to access the Site. A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your device used to access a Site, and our servers identify your device by its Device Identifier. Some mobile service providers may also provide us, or our third party service providers, with information regarding the physical location of the device used to access the Site. Usage Information is generally non-identifying, but if we associate it with you as a specific and identifiable person, we treat it as Personal Information.

The technologies that may be used to collect Usage Information include the following:

Cookies. A cookie is a data file placed on your computer or other device when you visit the Site or otherwise access our online content. Cookies may be used for many purposes, including, without limitation, remembering you and your preferences, tracking your visits to our web pages, and facilitating your check-out and purchases. We use both session and persistent cookies (which remains on your computer after the browser has been closed).

You may set up your computer to reject cookies by the privacy settings for your web browser although, in that case, you may not be able to use some of the features on our Site.  For further information on cookies, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.

Web Beacons. We may use web beacons (small graphic images or other web programming code, also known as “1×1 GIFs” or “clear GIFs”) and similar technologies on our Site and within our communications to you. Web beacons can recognize certain types of information on your computer such as cookies, the time and date a page is viewed, and a description of the page where the web beacon is placed. Web beacons or similar technologies may be used for a number of purposes, including, without limitation, to count visitors to the Site, to monitor how users navigate the Site, to count how many e-mails that were sent were actually opened or to count how many particular articles or links were actually viewed and to improve your experience on the Site, including to provide you with content customized to your interests. Our web beacons may collect some contact information (for example, the email address associated with an email message that contains a web beacon).

Embedded Scripts. An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the Site, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your device from our web server or a third party service provider, is active only while you are connected to the Site, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.


Note that your browser settings may allow you to automatically transmit a “Do Not Track” signal to websites and online services you visit. There is no consensus among industry participants as to what “Do Not Track” means in this context.  Like many websites and online services, Teasdale currently does not alter its practices when it receives a “Do Not Track” signal from a visitor’s browser. To find out more about “Do Not Track,” please visit http://www.allaboutdnt.com.


The Site may permit interactions between the Site and a third party web site, such as enabling you “like” or review a product on our Site or “share” content to other web sites. If you choose to “like,” review, or “share” content through the Site or to otherwise post information from or via the Site to a third party web site, feature or application, that information may be publicly displayed and the third party web site may have access to information about you and your use of our Web Site. Information you post to a third party web site is subject to that third party’s privacy policy.


We may receive information about you from third parties. For example, if you are on another web site and you opt-in to receive information from Teasdale or one of our brands, that web site will forward your contact and other information to us so that we may contact you as requested. You may also choose to participate in a social media application or similar application, skill or feature with a third party service (“Third Party Application”), through which you allow us to collect (or the third party to share) information about you, including personal information. The Third Party Application may be a feature on our Site (such as linking the Site with another web site or interactive service). Or, the Third Party Application may be a Teasdale feature or Teasdale content available through a third party web site, device or service. When you choose to participate, you may be opting to link your activity on our Site with that third party web site, device or service, which may then collect information about your visits to our Site and may publish that activity as you request to your profile or similar feature with that third party (such as if you choose to share a product featured on our Site with your connections on the third party web site). The information we collect is subject to this Privacy Policy. The information collected and stored by the third party remains subject to the third party’s privacy practices, including whether the third party continues to share information with us, the types of information shared, and your choices with regard to what is visible to others on that third party web site and service. The third party may allow you to remove the Third Party Application, in which case we will no longer collect information about you through it, but we may retain the information previously collected. In addition, we may receive information about you if other users of a Third Party Application give us access to their profiles and you are one of their “connections” or information about you is otherwise accessible through your “connections” web page, profile page, or similar page on a social networking or other third party web site or interactive service.

We also may supplement the information we collect with outside records from third parties. If we combine the information we receive from third parties with information we collect through the Site, we will apply this Privacy Policy to the combined information.


Teasdale may use information it collects, including Personal Information and Usage Information, to: (1) allow you to participate in features we offer or to provide related customer service; (2) tailor content, recommendations and offers we display to you, both on the Site and elsewhere online; (3) send you information or special offers from us; (4) improve the Site, our products, and services, and for internal business purposes; (5) contact you with regard to your use of Teasdale products and services, the Site, and, in our discretion, changes to the Site’s policies; and (6) as disclosed at the time you provide your information or otherwise with your consent. We may also use non-Personal Information, including information that has been de-identified (typically by using a mathematical process known as a “hash”), to make inferences about you, to serve you with relevant advertising, and to allow others to do so.


Teasdale may share non-Personal Information, such as aggregate user statistics, de-identified or hashed information, and Usage Information, with third parties. Teasdale does not share your Personal Information with unaffiliated third parties for their marketing purposes without your consent (which may consist of offering you the opportunity to either opt-in or opt-out of such sharing). We may share the information we have collected about you, including Personal Information, as disclosed at the time you provide us with information or with your consent, and as described in this Privacy Policy, including:


The Site may contain registration forms or other features that provide you the ability to opt-in or opt-out of sharing information about you with one or more third parties (for example, in order for a third party to send you special offers or coupons). If you agree at that time to have your Personal Information shared, your Personal Information will be disclosed to that third party (or parties) and will be subject to the privacy policy and practices of that third party. We are not responsible for the privacy policies and practices of third parties, and, if you later decide that you no longer want to receive communications from a third party, you will need to contact that third party directly. You also may request, sometimes through your use of an interactive feature, a widget or third party application, that we share information about you or your use of the Site with a third party, and we will typically do so under those circumstances.


We may provide third parties with access to user information, including Personal Information, in order for them to perform certain services on behalf of the Site or Teasdale, such as tracking analytics, sending communications on our behalf or performing other administrative services.


We may transfer and disclose user information, including Personal Information, to third parties: (i) in the event we are required to respond to subpoenas or other legal process or if in our opinion such disclosure is required by law; (ii) at the request of governmental authorities conducting an investigation; or (iii) to protect and/or defend the Terms of Use or other policies applicable to the Site or to protect the personal safety, rights, property or security of Teasdale or any individual. We may also use Device Identifiers, including IP addresses, to identify users, and may do so in cooperation with copyright owners, Internet service providers, wireless service providers or law enforcement agencies in our discretion.


We may share Personal Information and other user information with our corporate parent, Teasdale Foods, Inc., primarily for business and operational purposes. Teasdale also reserves the right to disclose and transfer all information related to the Site, including Personal Information: (i) to a subsequent owner, co-owner or operator of the Site or one of our databases; or (ii) in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, restructuring, bankruptcy, the sale of certain of our ownership interests, assets, or both, or other company change, including, without limitation, during the course of any due diligence process.


We may offer sweepstakes, contests, and other promotions that may require registration. By participating in a promotion, you are agreeing to the terms, conditions or official rules that govern that promotion, which may contain specific requirements of you, including, except where prohibited by law, allowing the sponsor(s) of the promotion to use your name, voice, likeness or other indicia of persona in advertising or marketing materials. If you choose to enter a promotion, Personal Information may be disclosed to third parties (including, without limitation, a co-sponsor) or the public in connection with the administration of such Promotion, including, without limitation, in connection with winner selection, prize fulfillment, and as required by law or permitted by the promotion’s official rules, such as on a winners list.


We work with third party service providers to serve Teasdale advertisements elsewhere online. In connection with serving content and providing analytics and advertising services, third parties may collect certain information about your visits to this or other web sites, and we may receive information regarding the use of the Site and the effectiveness of our advertisements. These third parties may set and access their own tracking technologies on your device (including cookies and web beacons) and may otherwise collect or have access to information about your visits to and activity on the Service as well as other web sites or online services. Some of these parties may collect personal information from you over time when you visit the Service or other websites and services. We may also share non-personal, aggregated or de-identified or hashed information at our discretion, including to serve you with relevant advertising, and to allow others to do so.

Cookies and web beacons used by us and on the Site, including those set by third party network advertisers, may be used to, among other things, target advertisements, prevent you from seeing the same advertisements too many times and to conduct research regarding the usefulness of certain advertisements to you. We may share Usage Information about visitors with third party advertising companies, analytics providers and other third parties for similar purposes. While we may use a variety of service providers to perform advertising and analytics services, some of these companies are members of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) or the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising. You may want to visit http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp, which provides information regarding targeted advertising and the “opt-out” procedures of NAI members. You may also want to visit or http://www.aboutads.info/choices/, which provides information regarding targeted advertising and offers an “opt-out” by participating companies in the DAA Self-Regulatory Program. You may also learn more and make choices about interest-based advertisements from participating third parties at the Canadian DAA online choice page at http://youradchoices.ca/choices

We may use Google Analytics, which uses cookies and similar technologies to collect and analyze information about use of the Sites and report on activities and trends. This service may also collect information regarding the use of other websites, apps, and online resources. You can learn about Google’s practices by going to www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/ and opt out of them by downloading the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on, available at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Please note opting out through these mechanisms does not opt you out of being served advertising. You will continue to receive generic ads while online.


You may opt out of receiving marketing e-mails from a Teasdale division, such as Teasdale Simply Especial, by following the opt-out instructions provided to you in those e-mails. Please note that we reserve the right to send you certain communications relating to your use of the Site (for example, policy updates) and these transactional account messages may be unaffected if you opt-out from marketing communications. You are responsible for maintaining the accuracy of the information you submit to us.


Teasdale takes commercially reasonable steps to help protect and secure Personal Information. However, please remember that no data storage or data transmission over the Internet, or by other means, can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Thus, while we strive to protect your personal data, Teasdale cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us. Therefore, you understand, acknowledge, and agree that you transmit certain Personal Information to the Site at your own risk.


Third parties may host or serve certain content on the Site. The Site may also contain links to third party web sites or features that Teasdale does not control. This includes links from advertisers, sponsors and partners that may use our logo(s) as part of a co-branding agreement, including third parties who may be selling Teasdale products. Third parties whose content appears on the Site may collect information about you through the use of their own cookies and web beacons, may independently collect or solicit Personal Information, and may have the ability to track your use of their sites and services. Likewise, Teasdale widgets or other Teasdale content may be included on third parties’ web pages and web sites that are not associated with Teasdale and over which we have no control. Teasdale may collect Usage Information through Teasdale content appearing on third-party sites.

Teasdale is not responsible for the privacy practices employed by any third party, and our hosting of third party content, linking to third party websites, or the appearance of Teasdale content on third party websites does not constitute sponsorship or endorsement of the content or business practices of those third parties.


Teasdale is a United States company and we operate the Site from the United States. If you are located in the European Union, Canada or elsewhere outside the United States, please be aware that information we collect will be transferred to and processed in the United States or other jurisdictions. By using the Site, or providing us with any information, you fully understand and unambiguously consent to this transfer, processing and storage of your information in the United States and other jurisdictions where the privacy laws may not be as comprehensive as those in the country where you reside and/or are a citizen.


Teasdale may update this Privacy Policy at any time and any changes will be effective upon posting, unless otherwise indicated. Your continued use of the Site after the effective date of the revised Privacy Policy (or other act as specified in the revised Privacy Policy) will constitute your consent to those changes. In the event that there are material changes to the way we treat your Personal Information, we will provide notice through the Site. We may also notify you in other ways, such as by email, in our discretion. However, we will not make material changes to how we treat previously collected Personal Information without first giving you the chance to consent (opt-in or opt-out). Note, however, that you may need to consent to our new Privacy Policy in order to continue to use the Services.


Pursuant to California Civil Code Section 1798.83, residents of the State of California have the right to request from companies conducting business in California certain information relating to third parties to which the company has disclosed certain categories of personal information during the preceding year for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. Alternatively, the law provides that a company may comply, as Teasdale does, by disclosing in its privacy policy that it provides consumers choice (opt-out or opt-in) regarding sharing personal information with third parties for those third parties’ direct marketing purposes, and information on how to exercise that choice. As stated below in this Privacy Policy, Teasdale provides you choice prior to sharing your personal information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes. If you do not opt-in or if you opt-out at the time Teasdale offers that choice, Teasdale does not share your information with that identified third party for its direct marketing purposes.

If you are a California resident and you have questions about our practices with respect to sharing information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes and your ability to exercise choice, please write to us at the following mailing address: 3041 Churchill Drive Suite 100, Flower Mound TX 75022. You must put the statement “Your California Privacy Rights” in the subject field of your e-mail or include it in your writing if you choose to write to us at the designated mailing address. You must include your name, street address, city, state, and zip code. We are not responsible for notices that are not labeled or sent properly, or do not have complete information.


If you have questions or comments about our privacy policy or our practices, you may contact us by mail at 3041 Churchill Drive Suite 100, Flower Mound TX 75022.

Please note that information submitted to the Site via a “contact us” or other similar function may not receive a response. We will not use the information provided via these functions to contact you for marketing purposes unrelated to your request unless you agree otherwise.
