This Web site is operated by Fruit Growers Supply Company. 27770 N. Entertainment Dr, Valencia, CA 91355. You can contact Fruit Growers directly at: (888) 997-4855 .
Fruit Growers Supply (“Fruit Growers”) cares about personal privacy and takes special care of the privacy of children under the age of 13. We have developed our privacy practices as they relate to children from guidelines established by the Children’s Advertising Review Unit (CARU) and in compliance with the requirements established by the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (“COPPA”). We also recommend that parents monitor their children’s Internet activities and learn and employ software or other tools which can help their children enjoy the fun and entertainment of an on-line experience without compromising their personal safety or allowing them to utilize the Internet in a manner inconsistent with their parent’s preferences.
WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT FROM CHILDREN?
At Fruit Growers it is our policy to create website experiences for children under the age of 13 that require minimal or no collection of personal information. Generally, Fruit Growers limits its collection of information to non-personally identifiable information that is gathered through the use of “cookie” technology or through a child’s voluntary submission to us. Non-personal information that we may ask a child to voluntarily submit, generally in the form of a survey that we use for research purposes, may include personal interest, gender, snack or food preferences, or age. Fruit Growers employs cookie technology and similar devices on our Websites to facilitate site administration and
From time to time, however, Fruit Growers may request limited personal information from your child (e.g. name, email address, age, and parent/guardian’s mailing address) in order for your child to participate in particular online activities. Except in special, limited circumstances, we do not collect this information online from a child without the consent of a parent/guardian. When we ask for their consent, we will tell them what we will do with the information that their child provides to us, how they can review their child’s information and how they can request us to delete it. Fruit Growers does not condition a child’s participation in any activity on its website on a child’s disclosure of more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in the activity.
Also, from time to time, Fruit Growers may collect information from a child under 13 without prior consent of a parent/guardian, but only in these special, limited circumstances:
We may seek a child’s name and a parent/guardian’s email contact information to seek the parent/guardian’s consent or to provide them with a notification.
We may seek a child’s name and email address in order to respond on a one-time basis to a specific request of that child. For example, if a child sends us an email request, we will hold their email address long enough to respond to them and then delete it from our system after we have provided an answer.
If a child signs up for one of our email newsletters, or any other of our activities that require multiple online contact with that child, we ask that child for the name or email address of a parent or guardian so that we can notify them and give them an opportunity to opt out of the activity on behalf of their child.
From time to time, Fruit Growers has special online promotions like sweepstakes or contests that are open to children under the age of 13. If a child under the age of 13 wishes to participate, we will ask for a parent/guardian’s name and email address so that we can notify them and give them an opportunity to complete the registration for their child or opt out of the activity on behalf of their child. Any information that is given to us in this circumstance is used only for the purpose of conducting the promotion and will be deleted from our system once the promotion is concluded, and after any legally required period for keeping such information has passed.
We may seek a child’s name and contact information to the extent reasonably necessary to protect the safety of a child participating on our website. In this situation the information will only be used for the sole purpose of protecting the child’s safety and, as above, we will provide the parent/guardian with notice of this use.
We may seek a child’s name and contact information to the extent reasonably necessary to protect the security or integrity of our website; to take precautions against liability; to respond to judicial process; or to extent permitted under other legal provisions, to provide information to law enforcement agencies or for an investigation on a matter related to public safety. Such information will not be used for any other purpose.
HOW DO WE USE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT?
The personally identifiable information we collect from a child under the age of 13 will be used solely by
Fruit Growers or its agents or contractors for the internal purposes indicated at the time the child, with parental/guardian notice or consent, provides the information. For example, if a parent registers a child in one of our sweepstakes, we will use the information to notify the child that he or she has won and to fulfill the sweepstakes prize. Fruit Growers currently does not disclose, sell or otherwise transfer to third parties personally identifiable information that children
provide, except, from time to time, however, we may transfer, disclose or share such information with third parties who are engaged by us specifically to administer or fulfill certain online activities (e.g. conducting sweepstakes and contest). Such third parties have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes. Lastly, we may also disclose personally identifiable information to third parties when required by law or pertinent to judicial or government investigations or proceedings, or otherwise necessary to protect our website or the safety of its users.
We have taken steps to protect confidentiality, security and integrity of all information our visitors share will us. This includes setting up processes to avoid any unauthorized access or disclosure of this information. We will also use our best efforts to maintain accurate personal information collected from our visitors.
