Children:

 If an iWebGrocer.com Site is intended for use by a younger audience, we will obtain consent from a parent or guardian before we collect personal information where we feel it is appropriate to do so or where the applicable laws and regulations of a jurisdiction require it (the age at which consent is necessary varies from country to country).  If you are a child over the age where parental consent is required in your country, you should review the terms of this Privacy Notice with your parent or guardian to make sure you understand and accept them.

If we discover that we have collected information from a child without consent from a parent or guardian where such consent should have been obtained, we will delete that information as soon as possible.

What Are Cookies?

 Cookies are unique identifiers that we transfer to your device to enable our systems to recognize your device and to provide features such as shortcut purchasing options, individualized recommendations, personalized advertisements on other websites, and storage of items in your “Shopping Cart” between visits.

 

The Help feature on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether.  Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser “add-on’s,” by changing the “add-on's” settings or by visiting the website of the browser company.  Because cookies allow you to take advantage of some of our essential features, we recommend that you leave them turned on.

SHARING OF INFORMATION:

Who do we share your personal information with?

 iWebGrocer International, Inc. is one of the world's leading fast moving consumer goods companies with products sold in over 190 countries (more information about iWebGrocer.com can be found here).  As a global business, we may share your personal information with iWebGrocer International, Inc. companies or affiliates and trusted third parties based outside the country in which you live so that they may process that data on our behalf , including:

We may share your personal information with:

  • Our advertising, marketing and promotional agencies to help us deliver and analyze the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns and promotions.

 

  • third parties required to deliver a product or service to you, such as a delivery or postal service delivering a product that you have ordered.

 

  • Law enforcement or government authorities where they have followed due legal process to request us to disclose the information.

 

  • Third parties who wish to send you information about their products and services, but only if you have given us consent to do so.

 

  • Third party providers of services, such as data processing, to iWebGrocer.com.

 

  • Web analytics tool providers, such as Google.

 

If we do share your personal information with another Unilever Group company or with trusted third parties, we shall use our best efforts to ensure that they keep your information secure, take all reasonable steps to protect it from misuse and only use it in a manner consistent with our instructions, this Privacy Notice and applicable data protection laws and regulations.

We may also share your personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of iWebGrocer International, Inc. if we believe that disclosure of the information is necessary for legal reasons, including, but not limited to the following:

We may share your personal information to:

 

  • to enforce applicable terms of use of iWebGrocer.com Sites;

 

  • to conduct investigations into possible breaches of applicable laws;

 

  • to detect, prevent and protect against fraud and any technical or security vulnerabilities;

 

  • to comply with applicable laws and regulations, to co-operate in any legal investigation and and/or to meet enforceable governmental requests.

 

Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share customer information only as described in this Privacy Notice and with subsidiaries and affiliates that either are subject to this Privacy Notice or follow practices at least as protective as those described in this Privacy Notice.

Affiliated Businesses We Do Not Control:  We sometimes work closely with affiliated businesses that we do not control.  In some cases, these businesses may operate their own stores or sell offerings to you. In other cases, we operate stores, provide services, or sell product lines jointly with these businesses.  You can tell when a third party is involved in your transactions, and we share customer information related to those transactions with that third party.

Third-Party Service Providers: We may also employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing credit card payments, and providing customer service.  They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.

Business Transfers:  As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy stores, subsidiaries, or business units. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Notice (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise). Also, in the unlikely event that iWebGrocer.com, International, Inc., or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.

Protection of iWebGrocer.com and Others: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; to enforce or to apply our Conditions of Use and other agreements; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of iWebGrocer.com, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.  Obviously, however, this does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Notice.

With Your Consent: Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.

How Secure Is Information About Me?

We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input.

We reveal only the last four digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing.

It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.

What About Third-Party Advertisers and Links to Other Websites?

Our site includes third-party advertising and links to other Web sites. For more information about third-party advertising at iWebGrocer.com, including personalized or interest-based ads, please read our Interest-Based Ads policy.

Which Information Can I Access?

iWebGrocer.com gives you access to a broad range of information about your account and your interactions with iWebGrocer.com for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases, updating that information. Click here to see some examples, the list of which will change as our Web site evolves

What Choices Do I Have?

As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide information, even though it might be needed to make a purchase or to take advantage of such iWebGrocer.com features as Your Profile, Wish Lists, Customer Reviews, and special iWebGrocer programs that may be developed or selectively available.

You can add or update certain information on pages such as those referenced in the "Which Information Can I Access?" section. When you update information, we usually keep a copy of the prior version for our records.

If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please adjust your Customer Communication Preferences. (If you do not want to receive Conditions of Use and other legal notices from us, such as this Privacy Notice, those notices will still govern your use of iWebGrocer.com, and it is your responsibility to review them for changes.)

If you do not want us to use personal information that we gather to allow third parties to personalize advertisements we display to you, please adjust your Advertising Preferences.

The Help feature on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-on's settings or visiting the Web site of its manufacturer. Because cookies allow you to take advantage of some of iWebGrocer.com's essential features, we recommend that you leave them turned on. For instance, if you block or otherwise reject our cookies, you will not be able to add items to your Shopping Cart, proceed to Checkout, or use any iWebGrocer.com products and services that require you to Sign in.
