In accordance with COPPA, we do not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. Moreover, Utz does not tailor its website to children. We recommend that no one under the age of 18 submit personally identifying information to Utz via this website or otherwise. In the event that we determine that a user of this Site is under the age of 13, we will not maintain or use his or her personally identifying information.

How We Collect and Use Personally Identifying Information
You are welcome to visit utzsnacks.com while remaining anonymous and not revealing or otherwise providing to Utz any personally identifying information. Moreover, subject to the privacy policies of third party social network providers (such as Facebook® and Twitter®), you are welcome to visit and view Utz’s publically available social networking account pages without providing Utz with your personally identifying information.

However, Utz may collect personally identifying information in each of the following instances:

  • When you request information or materials concerning Utz’s products through the website or otherwise;
  • When you submit a post on Utz’s Facebook® page or other social networking account;
  • When you subscribe to an e-mail newsletter via the website or otherwise;
  • When you purchase one or more Utz products online or store information using the “My Wishlist” feature on the website;
  • When you participate in surveys sponsored by Utz;
  • When you register to participate in a promotion (such as sweepstakes or contests) or otherwise provide Utz with your personally identifying information in connection with a promotion, sweepstakes or contest; and
  • When you otherwise directly provide Utz with your personally identifying information, such as via the “Contact Us” feature on the website.

In addition, Utz may hire other companies to perform services on its behalf, such as operating certain aspects of the website, sending you email or providing advertising services. These other companies may be supplied with or have access to your personally identifying information for the sole purpose of providing these services to us or on our behalf. These third parties may also collect and use non-personally identifiable information about your visits to the website in order to send advertisements that may be of interest to you. Utz does not collect personally identifiable information of a user’s online activities over time and across different websites.

What Personally Identifying Information We Collect
Categories of personally identifiable information that Utz may collect in each of the foregoing instances include the following:

  • Your first, middle and last name (including title and any suffixes);
  • Your home address, including street address, city, state and zip code;
  • Your phone number(s);
  • Your email address(es); and
  • Social networking user account information, such as Facebook® user names, Twitter® handles and the like.

How We Collect and Use Non-Personal Information
We also collect certain anonymous information that cannot be associated with you personally, such as the domains from which you visit us, the number of visitors to our websites, browsing patterns and areas of interest. We analyze this data to help us improve our websites, products and better serve our customers. Utz may sell, lend, share or disclose this non-personal information with others.

Cookies, Web Beacons, Clear Gifs, and IP Addresses
Utz may also use a feature of your browser called a “cookie,” which automatically identifies your computer, but not you, to our servers when you visit the website and allows us to correlate your computer with certain usage patterns which are stored in our log files. Cookies are used to gather general information about the website, such as usage statistics. Utz may also use session cookies to keep a user logged into the system and aid in the exchange of information between pages without loss of data. Session cookies are deleted once a user completely exits a web browser. Utz can also only read cookies from the website. Please note that if your browser is set to reject all cookies, Utz’s website may not function properly.

Utz may also use IP address information to count and track aggregate visits to the website, to assist in identifying problems with our server, and to administer the website. Utz does not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable to you.

Moreover, Utz may collect information through the use of clear gifs, which are also known as web beacons web bugs, in email messages that we send to you or are sent to you on Utz’s behalf. These are small files that are included in certain emails that inform us as to which emails we send are opened. Clear gifs may also see or read cookies on your computer. When authorized by Utz, certain contracted third parties, may use cookies, our web log files, clear gifs, and other similar monitoring technologies to compile and analyze anonymous aggregate data.

Do Not Track

Utz will not collect your personally identifiable information except if you provide Utz with such information, as set forth above.

Opt Out of Email Communications
If you choose to receive email communications from Utz and later change your mind, you may remove your personal information from our email database by unsubscribing at any time. Simply select the link and follow the unsubscribe instructions. Note, however, that Utz may still maintain your personally identifying information in other databases (such as in connection with a promotion or sweepstakes) unless you contact Utz directly (as provided below) and request that all personally identifying information be deleted, in which event Utz will take commercially reasonable efforts to delete your personally identifying information from its databases.

These websites have separate data collection and privacy policies unrelated to Utz’s, and Utz is not responsible for any third party’s policies or activities, your use of these websites, or such third parties’ collection and storage of your personally identifying information. Please review such third parties’ privacy policies and contact them directly if you have questions about their privacy policies.
