1.  Introduction.

We at CCF Brands, Inc. hope that you enjoy your visit to the CCF Brands web site.  The following terms govern your access to and use of this web site.  Please read these terms carefully.  You must agree to all of these terms in order to use this web site.  By accessing or using this web site, you are agreeing to be bound by these terms.

Please note that we may revise or update these terms at any time, and you may continue to access and use this web site only if you accept those changes.  Please check here regularly to determine if any changes to these terms have been made.

2.  Privacy Statement.

We recognize the importance of protecting your personal information.  The purpose of this privacy statement is to explain how we gather and use personal information obtained through this web site.

In general, if we collect information from you as part of your visit to our web site, we use that information only for the purposes for which it was collected, and the other limited purposes described below.  We will not sell or share your personally identifiable information with anyone else, other than our partners who help us operate and administer this web site.  Those partners are obligated to honor the terms of this privacy statement.  Whenever we use "we," "our," or like terms in this privacy statement, those terms refer both to us and to such partners.

A.  Types of Information Collected and Use of Information

In general, when you visit our web site and access information here you will remain anonymous.  We do, however, collect some non-personally identifiable information automatically as you move through our web pages.  We also may collect certain non-personally identifiable information through registration forms that you complete while visiting our web site.  Non-personally identifiable information might include your IP (Internet Protocol) address, the type of browser or operating system you use, the domain name from which you linked to our web site, your zip code, your age, your income level, and other general demographic information. We use this non-personally identifiable information to help us administer our web site.  We may also share this sort of information with others, but only on an aggregated basis.  You cannot be personally identified using this information.

The registration forms, contest entries and surveys found on our web site may also request that you give us personally identifiable information.  Such information includes your name, telephone number, home address, and e-mail address information.  We may use the information to contact you, but you may opt-out of receiving future mailings from us as explained below.  We will not sell or disclose your personally identifiable data to any third party unless (1) we need to share it with agents or contractors who perform services for us, such as disclosing your address to shipping companies so that we can ship requested items to you, or (2) we are required by law to disclose it.

The following are some, but not all, of the circumstances in which we might ask for personally identifiable information from our consumers though our site, the types of information we obtain, and how we use the information. You may be asked to provide personally identifiable information if you register for a sweepstakes, contest, or other promotion; register as a user of our site; register to receive coupons through our site; join a club through our site; 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 otherwise participate in features of our website that ask for personal information. Your participation in any of these activities (and therefore your provision of personally identifiable information) is voluntary. And if you do choose to receive any such e-mail communication from us, you will have the opportunity to “unsubscribe” from receiving the e-mail at any time.

If you contact one of our Consumer Services Representatives through our site, we may ask you for personally identifiable information such as your name, address, phone number, or e-mail address so that we can respond to your questions or comments.

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 in order for us to process your request.

B.  Cookies

We may use "cookies" to determine whether you have visited our web site previously, to record which web pages you visit, and to save and remember any preferences that you set while using the web site.  Our cookies do not track personally identifiable information.  Our cookies cannot retrieve any other data from your computer, and cannot obtain an e-mail address from you.  Although the Internet browsers used by most people may be modified to either accept all cookies, notify the user when a cookie is sent, or reject all cookies, it may not be possible to utilize certain services available through our web site if cookies are rejected.

C.  Links

In order to provide you with a broader range of information on the various topics presented on our web site, and in order to make your on-line experience easier and more enjoyable, our web site includes links to a number of other web sites.  The fact that we includes links to those sites does not mean that we endorse the owners or content of those web sites; that we have reviewed or approve the privacy policies or other materials found at those sites; or that we have discussed privacy with the owners of those sites.  We cannot be responsible for the content or privacy practices of those sites.  You should carefully review the privacy policies posted at those sites before using or disclosing personal information while navigating those sites.

D.  Public Forums

Our web site may from time to time make chat rooms, forums, message boards, and/or news groups available to its users.  Please remember that any information that you disclose in these areas becomes public information, and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose personal information in such areas.  We will assume that you are not interested in protecting the privacy of any information you disclose in such areas.  Such information will not be subject to protection according to this privacy statement, and we may use and republish such information. We make no representations and undertake no obligations as to the security of information you voluntarily post in chat rooms and message/bulletin boards.

E.  Security

We will take all reasonable steps to ensure the confidentiality of your personally identifiable information.  While no security measures are perfect, our web site has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of the information under our control. We cannot guarantee the security of any information you provide online; you provide it at your own risk. We do not assume any liability for third-party usage of your personal information, whether obtained legally or illegally from our system, and by using our site, you acknowledge you will not hold us liable for third-parties obtaining or using your personal information.

F.  Children

We do not intend that our web site will be used by children, and we do not seek to collect any information from children under the age of 13.  We believe that parents should supervise their children’s on-line activities to ensure that no information is collected from a child under the age of 13 years without parental permission. If any child should provide us with personally identifiable information, a parent or guardian may notify us as provided below and we will delete such information from our records.

G. Send-to-a-Friend Tools

This site may, from time to time, include a send-to-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. CCF Brands does not retain any of this information for any purpose.

H.  Deletion and Correction of Personal Information

You will have the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from us at the point where we request the necessary information to contact you. You may at any time ask us to remove any personally identifiable information concerning you, and thereby prevent us from sending future communications to you by sending an email to unsubscribe@ccfbrands.com, or by sending a letter to 5211 Village Parkway - Suite 101, Rogers, AR 72758.
