Your privacy is important to us. This policy discloses how AdvancePierre Foods, Inc. (“AdvancePierre Foods”) collects, protects, uses and shares personal information gathered about you, if any.
Information Collection / Use
AdvancePierre Foods collects information from our users at several different points on this Web site (this “Site”). For example, we may collect personal information about you. Personal information is defined to include your name, home address, home telephone number, e-mail address, Social Security Number and/or identification number, financial information, and employment-related information such as may be found on resumes, applications, background verification information, or in employment references. In addition, we automatically collect non-personal information such as your browser type, operating system, IP address, and site usage information, in order to evaluate and improve the performance of this Site.
We collect and use information for the specific purposes for which you provide it, such as when you request information from us. We also collect and use information:
- to enhance your experience at this Site;
- to perform site administration and technical support;
- to notify you about our new and existing content, events, properties or services;
- to enable you to enter promotional campaigns;
- to create aggregate information about demographics and usage patterns.
We may also use third party providers to help us contact you or to support this Site and services, and for these limited purposes, we may share your personal information with our providers. By registering for and/or using this Site, you consent to our sharing of your personal information with our third party providers for these limited purposes.
We may use aggregate information to measure general site usage patterns and characteristics of our user base, and we may include such aggregate information about our audience in reports to our partners or vendors. We may also disclose aggregated user statistics (for example, 28% of our members live in Indiana) without your permission in order to describe our audience to existing and prospective sponsors or other third parties. However, this aggregate information does not reference names, e-mail addresses, or other personally identifiable information, and it is not traceable to a specific recipient or e-mail address.
Security, Storage and Retention
Personal information collected by AdvancePierre Foods is stored in reasonably secure operating environments that are not available to the public. We are dedicated to maintaining the security of such information and will retain it only for so long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected and to comply with applicable laws. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed 100% secure. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best efforts to ensure its security on our systems. We will notify you immediately if any breach of our security system affects you by sending an e-mail notice to you within 5-7 days of our discovery of any such breach.

However, if the parent or guardian of a child under 13 believes that the child has provided us with personal information, the parent or guardian of that child should contact our Privacy Compliance Officer through the contact information provided below if they want this information deleted from our files. If we obtain knowledge that we have personal information about a child under 13 in retrievable form in our files, we will delete that information from our existing files. In addition, anyone under 18 years old should seek their parent’s or guardian’s permission prior to using or disclosing any personal information on the Site.
