Like most website operators, Pod Foods collects non-Personal Information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Pod Foods' purpose in collecting non-Personal Information is to better understand how Pod Foods' visitors use its website. From time to time, Pod Foods may release non-Personal Information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. Pod Foods also collects other information such as Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on Pod Foods’ blog posts. Pod Foods only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses Personal Information as described below.
Gathering of Personal Information
Certain visitors to Pod Foods' websites choose to interact with Pod Foods in ways that require Pod Foods to gather Personal Information. The amount and type of information that Pod Foods gathers depends on the nature of the interaction.
Protection of Certain Personal Information
Pod Foods discloses Personal Information only to those of its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Pod Foods' behalf or to provide services available at Pod Foods' Website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Pod Foods' Website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Pod Foods will not rent or sell Personal Information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, Pod Foods discloses Personal Information only in response to a subpoena, court order, or other governmental request, or when Pod Foods believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Pod Foods, third parties, or the public at large.
If you are a registered user of our Website and have supplied your email address, Pod Foods may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, request your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with Pod Foods and our products. We primarily use our blog and social media to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Pod Foods takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of Personal Information.
Those who engage in transactions with Pod Foods, by purchasing Pod Foods' services or products, are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions (“Sensitive Information”). In each case, Pod Foods or a third party collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Pod Foods. Pod Foods does not disclose Personal Information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply Personal Information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
The security of your Personal Information is important to us, and we take precautions to protect it. However, please remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. When you submit Sensitive Information via the Website, we do our best to protect your information both online and offline. Wherever we collect Sensitive Information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the Web page.
While we use encryption to protect Sensitive Information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to Personal Information. The servers on which we store Personal Information are maintained in secure environments by third party providers.

We employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Website, to provide our Website on our behalf, to perform Website-related services, or to assist us in analyzing how our Website is used. These third-parties have access to Personal Information only to perform these specific tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose, and their use of Personal Information is governed by their respective privacy policies.
