Privacy

Our online privacy policy is to respect and protect the privacy of our users. We want our Internet users to be comfortable using our sites. This policy statement tells you how we collect information from you and how we use it. The following policy only applies to online activities on the www.otisfundraisingideas.com website, not to offline activities.

Registration

You may use most portions of this site without providing any personal information. However, in order to use some of the interactive features of this site, you must be a registered user. Registration may require you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information, such as your name, email address, mailing address and birth date. We need to collect this information for fulfilling prizes, tracking/verifying compliance with policies, and federal, state and local laws and/or for editorial and feedback solicitation purposes.

If you contact us for more information using the forms on our website, that information is forwarded to our service department for a response via email or phone. We respect your privacy and will not sell or share this information with a third party. We will, based on your request for information, contact you to find out how we can help, and you can opt out of subsequent communications at any time.

Email Preferences

To safeguard your information and ensure compliance with CANSPAM and other email laws or guidelines, we use a service provided by MailChimp for users who would like to opt-in to receiving email promotions, offers, blog feeds, or newsletters from Otis Spunkmeyer fundraising. You can control your email preferences settings using the links at the footer of every promotional email we send via MailChimp. For more information about data security, email compliance, and how MailChimp helps us safeguard your data, please visit www.mailchimp.com. We pledge to never sell or share the personal information of our email newsletter subscribers with a third party.

Blog Commenting

To facilitate comments management on our blogs, we use a service called Disqus for open authorization of users who wish to sign in and leave a message on our blog articles. This service uses Open Authorization to allow you to sign in and leave a comment, and you can choose how you want to sign in to our site (via Facebook, Twitter, etc), or register as a guest. When you sign in to leave a comment, we have no access to your personal login information for these social networking sites, and the Disqus service represents the best practices for secure open authorization. For more information about how open authorization and the Disqus service works, please visit www.disqus.com. We believe that using Disqus is the best way to protect your personal information while still allowing you to leave comments on our blogs. After all, if we never have access to your personal social media logins, then that information cannot be compromised.

Use Of Personally Identifiable Information

Otis Spunkmeyer will not disclose your personal information to third parties without your consent. However, certain personal information required to enter a sweepstakes or contest may be shared with our partners. Please review the rules of the sweepstakes or contest carefully before disclosing any personal information. Also, this site may disclose user information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property, other website users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. Otis Spunkmeyer may disclose user information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.

We share aggregate information (data that does not contain personally identifiable information) about our users with advertisers, business partners, sponsors and other third parties. For example, we may say our internet audience is x percent females and y percent males. This data is used to customize website content to deliver a better experience for our users.

Opting-Out

Information provided at the time of Registration or submission from a guest who is 13 years of age or over may be used for marketing and promotional purposes by Otis Spunkmeyer and our affiliates. To keep you in control of your personal information and the communications directed to you, we allow you to opt-out of the following services: receiving communications from us about new features or services, and receiving communications about offers from third-party companies that offer a product or service that we think would be of value to you. (Please remember that certain personal information is required to enter a sweepstakes or contest and that information may be shared with our partners. Please review the rules of the sweepstakes or contest carefully before entering.)

Information provided when purchasing products from any of our online stores (except for credit card information) may be used for marketing and promotional purposes and is subject to the opt-out processes described on, or linked to, each order form.

To opt out of email communications please use the preferences management links at the bottom of our promotional emails, or reply to the email with your unsubscribe request.

Policies For Kids (Individuals Under 13 Years Of Age) And Teens

This website is intended for the use and interest of fundraising sponsors interested in conducting an Otis Spunkmeyer fundraiser for their organization, and is not directly designed for use by children under the age of thirteen (13), or Teens. However, we are conscious of the possibility such persons may visit our site. It is our policy to collect a minimum of information from guests under 13 years of age and teens, and only such information as may be required to ensure guests can effectively join in our activities. We do not condition participation in a particular activity on the collection of more information than is reasonably necessary. Otis Spunkmeyer does not provide any personally identifying information, regardless of its source, to any third party for any purpose whatsoever from guests known to be under 13 years of age.

Use Of IP Addresses

An IP address is a number that's automatically assigned to your computer whenever you're surfing the Web. Web servers automatically identify your computer by its IP address.

Otis Spunkmeyer collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to report aggregate information to our advertisers, and to audit the use of our site. When guests request pages from our website, our servers log the guests' IP addresses. We do not normally link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that a user's session will be logged but the user remains anonymous to us. We can and will use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our house rules or terms of service or to protect our service, site, customers or others.

Use Of Cookies

Cookies are pieces of data that a website transfers to an individual's hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Cookies make Web-surfing easier for you by saving your preferences while you're at our site. We never save passwords or credit card information in cookies. The use of cookies is an industry standard.

By showing how and when guests use a site, cookies help us see which areas are popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates to the site are based on such data as total number of visitors and pages viewed. This information is most easily tracked with cookies. We use the information from cookies to provide services better tailored to our users needs.

Otis Spunkmeyer primarily uses cookies to track user trends and patterns. This helps us better understand and improve areas of the service that our users find valuable. While this activity depends on the use of a "cookie," visitors to our websites always have the option of disabling cookies via their browser preferences. Information from cookies is sometimes attached to messages sent to our Customer Service department.

Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, note that some parts of the our website mayl not function properly if you refuse cookies. For example, without cookies, you will not be able to set personalized preferences or you may have difficulty completing shopping transactions, entering contests, or playing games.

You may occasionally get cookies from our advertisers if you "click" on an advertisement that takes you to the advertiser's website. Otis Spunkmeyer does not control these cookies. The use of advertising cookies sent by third-party servers is standard in the Internet industry.

Security

The importance of security for all personally identifiable information associated with our guests is of utmost concern to us. We exercise great care in providing secure transmission of your information from your PC to our servers. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we can't ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. When credit card information is transmitted we use industry standard, SSL (secure socket layer) encryption.

Remember to sign out of your account and close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if your computer is accessible to others or if you share a computer or internet connection with someone else or are using a computer in a public place.

By using this site, you signify your assent to the otisfundraisingideas.com Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to this policy, please do not use our sites. Your continued use of the spunkmeyer.com sites following the posting of changes to these terms will mean you accept those changes.

Questions regarding this statement should be directed to the webmaster by phone at (510) 667-6195, or by postal mail at: Spunkmeyer ATTN: Webmaster, 14490 Catalina Street, San Leandro, CA 94577.
