At Stonemill Kitchens/Reser’s Fine Foods, Inc (Reser’s), we recognize that visitors to our website and websites of our portfolio of brands such as Stonemill Kitchens, may be concerned about the information they provide to us and how we handle that information. This website is owned and operated by Reser’s Fine Foods, Inc. (“Reser’s) and applies to our family of companies and brands. This Privacy Notice describes the types of information we collect from and about you when you visit any of our websites where this policy is posted or when you otherwise interact with us. This Privacy Notice also explains how we may and disclose such information, as well as your options to control certain uses of it.
HERE IS THE TYPE OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT:
Information You Provide
We collect certain personal information from you when you choose to share it with us. This may include when you use one of our Sites; register on one or more of our Sites; sign up for a newsletter or one of our email lists; use our services; participate in a contest, sweepstakes, game, survey, or promotion; request information from us; apply for a job with us; or otherwise contact us. The personal information we collect may include your name, birth date or age, telephone number, and e-mail address.
We don’t require you to register or provide personal information to view our Sites or access its content. However, you may be required to provide certain personal information to receive certain offers such as receiving a coupon, offer, participating in a Sweepstakes, or submitting a comment or question through our “Contact Us” form. Such information may include your e-mail address, nickname, city and state of residency, comments, or pictures if you choose to provide them.
If you use a third-party login to create your account (such as Facebook) or otherwise link to us, we may receive certain information about you from the third party (such as a social network) based on your registration and privacy settings on those third-party websites. We may combine the information you provide to us with information from and about you that we automatically collect when you visit the Site, from third parties, or other online and offline sources.
Information Collected by Automated Means
For example, through these means, we may automatically collect information such as your browser type, operating system, mobile device type and carrier, Internet service provider (“ISP”), and Internet Protocol (“IP”) address. We may also collect information about your use of and interaction with the Site, including as the webpages viewed, the date and time you visit the Site, the areas or pages of the Site that you visit, the amount of time you spend viewing or using the Site, the number of times you return to the Site, other click-stream or site usage data, whether you open, forward, or click-through links, emails, and ads, and other Site usage data. We may link this information with your personal information to best tailor our website and enhance your online experience by saving your preferences while you are visiting a particular site, and to help identify site features, recipes, advertisements, and offers that may be of particular interest to you.

We also may use third party ad networks to support our Sites. Some of these advertisers and ad networks may use technology such as cookies, web beacons, pixel tags, log files, or local shared objects (such as Flash cookies) when they advertise on or on behalf of our Site, which will also send these advertisers and ad networks non-personal information including your IP address, ISP, browser type, and whether you have Flash installed. Some of these advertisers and ad networks also may use anonymous data, such as demographic data, received from third parties to assist in the delivery of advertisements to you. These third-party advertisers and ad networks use the information described above to provide you relevant advertisements based on your online behavior, search activities on our Site and on other third-party sites, and demographic information, so that the advertising you see on our site more closely reflects your interests.

INFORMATION FOR CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS
This California Privacy Notice supplements our Website Privacy Notice and describes the types of information we collect from and about California residents. This Privacy Notice also explains how we may use and disclose such information, as well as your ability to control certain uses of it. Any terms defined in the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) have the same meeting when used in this California Privacy Notice.
Notice at Collection Regarding the Categories of Personal Information Collected
You have the right to receive notice of certain information about our data collection, use, and disclosure. The following table summarizes the categories of personal information we collect; the categories of sources of that information; whether we disclose, sell, or share that information to service providers or third parties, respectively; and the criteria we use to determine the retention period for such information. The table also summarizes the categories of “sensitive” personal information that we collect, the purposes for which such information is used, and whether we sell or share such information. The categories we use to describe personal information are those enumerated in the CCPA.
|Category||Information Type||Source||We may disclose to:||We may sell to/share with:|
|Identifiers||Contact information or personal characteristics (name; email address; postal address; telephone number; signature)Social media handles||You; our social media pages; third-party subscription service providers||Service Providers||Business partners|

|Content of Communications||Contents of phone calls, emails, or text messages to us||You||Service Providers||Not sold/shared|
We do not collect health information or biometric information.
We determine the retention period for each of the categories of personal information listed above based on (1) the length of time we need to retain the information to achieve the business or commercial purpose for which it was obtained, (2) any legal or regulatory requirements applicable to such information, (3) internal operational needs, and (4) any need for the information based on any actual or anticipated investigation or litigation.
Entities to whom we disclose information for business purposes are service providers, which are companies that we engage to conduct activities on our behalf. We restrict service providers from using personal information for any purpose that is not related to our engagement.
Entities to whom we “sell” or with whom we “share” information are third parties. Under the CCPA, a business “sells” personal information when it discloses personal information to a company for monetary or other benefit. A company may be considered a third party either because we disclose personal information to the company for something other than an enumerated business purpose under California law, or because its contract does not restrict it from using personal information for purposes unrelated to the service it provides to us. A business “shares” personal information when it discloses personal information to a company for purposes of cross-context behavioral advertising.
Your Rights and Choices
California residents have certain rights under California law. If you are a California resident, you have the following rights:
- Opt out of sale or sharing of personal information: You have the right to opt out of our sale or sharing of your personal information to third parties. To exercise this right, please visit our Your Privacy Choices page or contact us. Your right to opt out does not apply to our disclosure of personal information to service providers.
- Limit the use of your sensitive personal information: You have the right to limit our use of your sensitive personal information if we use such information to infer characteristics about you. We do not use your sensitive personal information for this purpose.
- Know and request access to and correction or deletion of personal information: You have the right to request access to personal information collected about you and information regarding the source of that personal information, the purposes for which we collect it, and the third parties and service providers to whom we sell, share, or disclose it. You also have the right to request in certain circumstances that we correct personal information that we have collected about you and to delete personal information that we have collected directly from you. Please contact us or visit our Your Privacy Choices page to exercise these rights.
“Shine the Light” Law
California residents are entitled once a year, free of charge, to request and obtain certain information regarding our disclosure, if any, of certain categories of personal information to third parties for their own direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year. We do not share your personal information with third parties for those third parties’ direct marketing purposes.
We may offer you the opportunity to participate in special promotions, sweepstakes, and programs from time to time. Your participation is voluntary. If we provide this offer, we will obtain your consent to collect your personal information in connection with your participation. The category of personal information we collect is personal identifiers, which we use to facilitate your participation in the program and to market to you. If we run the program jointly with a business partner, we may disclose the information to that business partner.
You may opt-in to the program using the means we present to you, such as an online registration page, at the time we make the offer. You may opt out of the program at any time by contacting us.
The program we offer may qualify as a financial incentive program (FIP) under California law. We are required to explain how the value you receive from FIPs is reasonably related to the value that we receive from the personal information you provide to us. We use the personal information you provide to send direct marketing emails, unless you opt-out, and to contact sweepstakes or promotional winners. We may disclose the personal information you provide to service providers who help us operate our sweepstakes or promotions. These activities generate revenue for us that we believe is reasonably related to the benefit you receive from participating in our programs. Our good faith estimate of the value of your Personal Information is $0.75. We calculated that value using expenses related to the collection of consumers’ personal information. We believe this value is reasonable because it is based on the average expenses associated with recently run sweepstakes.
INFORMATION FOR RESIDENTS OF COLORADO, CONNECTICUT, UTAH, VIRGINIA
Residents of the States of Colorado, Connecticut, Utah, and Virginia have the following rights:
- Opt out of “sales” of personal information and use of their personal information for “targeted advertising,” as those terms are defined under applicable law.

EXERCISING YOUR RIGHTS
If you would like to exercise the rights set out above, please contact us at 1-800-333-6431 or submit a verifiable consumer request using the form found on our Your Privacy Choices page.

You may submit verifiable consumer requests on behalf of your minor children.
Once we have received and verified your request, we will send a confirmation of our receipt of your request and, within 45 days, either a copy of the requested information or confirmation of deletion or correction, as applicable. If, for any reason, we are unable to fulfill your request, we will notify you and provide an explanation.
