Our Privacy Policy

Growers Express, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“GE,” “we,” “us,” “our”) is committed to protecting the privacy of our customers and those who visit our website at http://greengiantfresh.com (“Site”). This Privacy Policy explains how we collect information about you and how we use it. We reserve the right to amend or otherwise modify this Privacy Policy at any time.  Revisions to this Privacy Policy will be effective when posted on this Site. The date of last revision is shown at the bottom of this document. In addition, we may supplement our current Privacy Policy with additional notices of our information practices specific to certain programs or activities.

Collection of Information

We collect information you provide us on servers located in the United States. We collect information when, for example, you submit an email via the Contact Us page, use our website and mobile features, enter the contests, promotions, events and newsletters we sponsor or otherwise provide us information about yourself. The type of information we collect may include:

Your name, postal and e-mail address, phone number and any information you may share with GE (“Personal Information”).

We may also automatically collect information about you when you access or use our Site. Automatically collected data may include log-in information (browser type, access date & time, publisher IP, etc.), device information (hardware type/model, operating system) as well as your location information if required.

In addition, we may use cookies, web beacons, and other tracking technologies to collect information about you and your interaction with our Site, including information about your browsing on our website and other interaction with our Site. We use this information in one or more of the ways described in the “Use of Information” section below. Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default, but typically you can change your browser settings to remove or reject cookies.

Use of Information

The information we collect is generally used to improve our Site, monitor and analyze your use and behavior patterns, and understand your needs so that we can serve you better. For example, we may use your telephone number, your e-mail or your postal address to communicate about opportunities and programs. If you prefer not to receive promotional information from us, you can contact us to “opt out” (see Your Choices below).

We store and process information on computer servers located in the United States.

Sharing of Information

We may share Personal Information about you outside of the GE family. For example:

We share Personal Information with General Mills, B&G Foods and http://www.boxtops4education.com.

We may provide to third parties certain information that is necessary to respond to an inquiry you sent via the Site, award a sweepstakes prize, and maintain or perform improvements to our Site. However, we only give vendors, suppliers, and others involved in handling your requests the necessary Personal Information. Moreover, we require them to keep the information confidential and not to use it for other purposes. We are not responsible for any additional information you provide directly to these parties, and we encourage you to become familiar with their practices before disclosing information directly to them.

We may also provide access to data that include your information in connection with the contemplated or actual financing, securitization, insuring, merger, sale or other encumbrance, divestiture or disposal of all or part of our business or assets, including for the purposes of determining whether to proceed with the transaction or fulfilling any records or other reporting requirements to relevant third parties. In the event of any actual transaction involving transfer of ownership or encumbrance, your Personal Information, among other things, may be transferred as part of the transaction.

We also may share your information when you specifically ask or authorize us to do so, or when we conclude disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request, to enforce our agreements and policies, and where circumstances otherwise warrant doing so.

Security

We take commercially reasonable measures to secure and store your Personal Information to protect against its loss, misuse or alteration while under our control. That said, data transmission over the Internet is not 100% secure. Although we use industry standard security measures, we do not guarantee against the loss, misuse or alteration of any information during its delivery or under our control. We thus urge you to always take care how you handle and disclose your personal information over the Internet.

Internet Technologies Used

Cookies, web beacons and other relevant Internet technologies are used on our Site to allow us to accomplish the uses set out in this Privacy Policy as well as to deliver service messaging and to keep track of your information. These small pieces of program code or “files” reside on your computer hard drive and browser and can be removed. If you desire to remove the technologies you may do so, but this may render our services unusable to you. You can opt out of cookies or the other Internet technologies used by disabling these features in your browser program. Consult your browser’s “Help” menu for assistance in changing cookie settings or removing cookie files.

Children’s Privacy

We are very sensitive to the issue of children’s privacy. Our Site is neither developed for, nor directed at, children under 13 years old. If you believe your child has provided us with personal information and would like to have this information removed, please contact our privacy representative at customerservice@greengiantfresh.com for assistance.

Links from Our Services to Other Websites

Our Site may contain links to third-party owned or operated websites. When you access these external websites, the providers of the websites, which may include product or service vendors and other unrelated parties, may have access to certain information about you. Please be aware that once you have left our Site, we are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any websites that we do not control directly and the collection, use and disclosure of information about you by these entities will be subject to the privacy policies applicable at those other websites.

Your Choices

Your Information. Personal Information may be retained for archival, safety notice and other legal or business purposes.

Promotional Communications. You may opt out of receiving promotional emails and text messages from GE by following the instructions in those communications or by contacting GE customer care at customerservice@greengiantfresh.com. If you opt out of receiving promotional communications, we may still send you non-promotional emails.

Location Information. You also have the ability to turn location-based services on and off by adjusting the settings of your Internet browser or mobile device, or by following the standard uninstall process and removing all GE applications, if any, from your mobile device.

Notwithstanding the foregoing or any other provision in this Privacy Policy, you may not be permitted to withdraw your permission or consent to certain necessary uses and disclosures of your Personal Information, for example, but not limited to, providing product recall announcements and services, maintaining reasonable business and transaction records, and disclosures required by applicable laws. In addition, we may be required or permitted under various federal, state and/or foreign laws to collect, use or disclose your information without your consent, for example, to comply with a valid subpoena, court order or governmental inquiry, or to collect a debt owed to us. We expressly reserve all rights described in this paragraph.

Third Party Advertising, Analytics and Services

We allow third parties to serve advertisements on our behalf across the Internet and to provide analytics services. These third parties may use similar technologies to collect the same or similar information as we use and collect to analyze and track data, determine the popularity of certain content, deliver advertising and content that aligns with your interests on our Site and other websites, and to better understand, generally, your online activity. This Privacy Policy does not apply to, and we are not responsible for, third party technologies and we encourage you to check the privacy policies of these third parties to learn more about their privacy practices.

Your California Privacy Rights

California law permits residents of California to request certain details about how their information is shared with third parties for direct marketing purposes. However, under the law, a business is not required to provide this information if it permits California residents to opt in to, or opt out of this type of sharing. GE qualifies for this alternative option. To opt out of having your information shared with third parties for direct marketing purposes, please call Customer Service.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

GE may change this Privacy Policy from time to time in at sole discretion. Each time changes are made, we revise the Effective Date above. We encourage you to periodically review the Privacy Policy to insure you have the most current version and to stay informed about our information practices and the ways you can help protect your privacy.
