USES OF INFORMATION
Poppyseed collects your information to facilitate your participation in the activities you select and to prevent fraud and unlawful use. If you purchase our granola, the information is used to fulfill your order. Your personal information may also be used to track customer preferences to provide a customized Site experience. Poppyseed may collect information about the use and ordering of our products and services and the Site, including, without limitation, product ordering information, types of services used, how many users we receive daily, Site pages visited, and the internet protocol (“IP”) address of your computer. By submitting your data, you expressly consent to such uses. This information is generally collected in aggregate form without identifying any user individually, although IP address in relation to purchases and downloads may be tracked as part of Poppyseed’s customer order review and fraud prevention efforts. Poppyseed may use aggregate, nonidentifying statistical data for improving the Site and our products and services to provide more relevant experiences to our customers and for statistical analysis.

PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
We do not share personally identifiable information with third parties except as described in the “Service Providers” and “Legal Disclaimer” sections below.
We may use third parties to provide shopping cart, shipping, credit card processing, and email list management on our Site. When you sign up for mailing lists or order items online, we will share names, email addresses, shipping address, and credit card information as necessary for such third parties to provide the applicable service.
We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Site.
We provide you the opportunity to “opt-out” of having your personally identifiable information used for certain purposes when we ask for such information. For example, if you purchase granola but do not wish to receive any marketing material from us, you can indicate your preference on our order form. If you no longer wish to receive our newsletter and promotional communications, you may opt-out of receiving them by following the instructions included in each newsletter or promotional communication.
The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number) on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
