Effective Date: January 1, 2018

This Privacy Policy explains when and how Birnn Chocolates of Vermont, Inc. (“Birnn,” “us,” or “we”) collect, use and disclose Personal Information (defined below) and Non-Personal Information (defined below) anytime you interact with Birnn, such as when you use Birnn’s website www.birnn.com (the “Site”) and other related information and services provided by us (collectively with the Site, the "Services"), when you purchase Birnn products or call Birnn sales or support associates and at other times. By accessing or using the Services, you consent to this Privacy Policy.

Information We Automatically Collect. We automatically collect information that does not reflect or reference an individually identifiable user ("Non-Personal Information") to help us understand how our users use the Services. Our Services use "cookies" and other technologies to help us understand Site use information and to improve the quality and functionality of the Services. We also gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes, without limitation, Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, Web browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp and clickstream data.

Information You Choose To Submit. We collect information that personally identifies you, such as your name, e-mail address or billing and shipping information, business information and/or other data which can be reasonably linked to such information ("Personal Information") that you choose to share with us. For example, you may be required to provide us with certain Personal Information to become an approved registered wholesale retailer, make a purchase, request a catalog, or sign up to receive Birnn’s e-mails. The decision to provide this information is optional; however, if you elect not to provide such information, you may not be able to access certain areas of our Services.

How We Use Personal And Non-Personal Information. We use Personal Information and Non- Personal Information for internal purposes only including performing administration and technical support for the Services, notifying you about our products or services, gathering demographic information about our user base as a whole, and processing and fulfilling your orders and requests. We will not sell, share or rent Personal Information to third parties, and we will not otherwise disclose Personal Information to third parties, without your permission, except as disclosed in this Privacy Policy. We cooperate with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We may disclose Personal Information and any other information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties if, in our discretion, we believe it is necessary or appropriate in order to respond to legal requests (including court orders and subpoenas), to protect the safety, property or rights of Birnn or of any third party, to prevent or stop any illegal, unethical or legally actionable activity, or to comply with the law. In the event that Birnn is merged, or in the event of a sale or other transfer of our assets, we may disclose or transfer Personal Information and Non-Personal Information in connection with such transaction.

Security. We use physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect the confidentiality and security of information transmitted to us, including using SSL technology for encryption and transmittal of your order information (including your credit card information). However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, we cannot and do not guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit on or through the Services, and you do so at your own risk.

Children. The safety of children online is very important to us. We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under the age of 18. If we become aware that we have inadvertently received Personal Information from a user under the age of 18, we will delete the information as soon as possible. Because we do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under the age of 18, we also do not knowingly distribute such information to third parties.

Links to Other Websites. The Sites may contain links to other websites. Birnn is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such other websites. The privacy policies applicable to such other websites may differ substantially from this Privacy Policy so we advise you to read them before using those websites. Birnn will not be liable for any use of those websites.

Privacy Policy Changes. We reserve the right, at our discretion, to change this Privacy Policy at any time. Please check the link to this page from our homepage periodically for changes. Those changes will go into effect on the Effective Date disclosed in the changed Privacy Policy. The new Privacy Policy will apply to all current and past users of the Services and will replace any prior Privacy Policies that are inconsistent. By continuing to use the Services, you consent to the changed Privacy Policy.
