To learn how to manage cookies and other tracking tools used by Driscoll’s or on the Sites, see the "Tracking Technologies and Interest-Based Advertising" section below.

 

TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES AND INTEREST-BASED ADVERTISING

We Use Common Tracking Technologies.
Like many websites, we use tracking technologies such as cookies, web beacons and similar technologies to record your preferences, and track the use of our Sites. We may also use these technologies to monitor traffic, improve the Sites, and make the Sites easier to use and more relevant.

We partner with third-party advertising companies who also use these tracking tools to provide analytics about the Sites or provide advertisements on other websites. These third parties may use these technologies to collect information about you when you use the Sites. They may collect information about your online activities over time and across different websites and other online services. They may also use persistent identifiers to track your Internet usage across other websites in their networks beyond the Sites. They may use this information to provide you with interest-based advertising or other targeted content. While we do not knowingly provide these entities with information that personally identifies you such third parties may, with sufficient data from other sources, be able to personally identify you, unknown to us. To learn more about the third-party collection and use of your information, please visit the Network Advertising Initiative and the Digital Advertising Alliance.

Your Choices With Respect To Tracking Technologies And Interest-Based Ads.
You also have choices to limit some tracking mechanisms that collect information when you use the Sites. Your browser or device may include “Do Not Track” functionality. Our Sites are not built to respond to such Do Not Track signals. That means that even if your browser is set to “Do Not Track,” our information collection and disclosure practices (including the choices that we provide to customers) will continue to operate as described in this Privacy Policy, whether or not a Do Not Track signal is received. You may, however, limit online tracking as described in this section.

Many web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser’s setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, certain features of our Sites, including the Sites themselves, may not function properly or remain accessible to you. In addition, you may also render some web beacons unusable by rejecting or removing their associated cookies. Note that if you choose to remove cookies, you may remove opt-out cookies that affect your advertising preferences.

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”), on our Sites. Google Analytics uses cookies or other tracking technologies to help us analyze how users interact with and use the Sites, compile reports on the Sites’ activity, and provide other services related to activity and usage on the Sites. The technologies used by Google may collect information such as your IP address, time of visit, whether you are a return visitor, and any referring website. The Sites do not use Google Analytics to gather information that personally identifies you. The information generated by Google Analytics will be transmitted to and stored by Google and will be subject to Google’s privacy policies. To learn more about Google’s partner services and to learn how to opt out of tracking of analytics by Google click here.

Many of the third party advertisers that place tracking tools on our Sites are members of programs that offer you additional choices regarding the collection and use of your information. You can learn more about the options available to limit these third parties’ collection and use of your information by visiting the websites for the  Network Advertising Initiative and the Digital Advertising Alliance, as well as the webpages for Facebook’s ad preferences tool and privacy policy.

Similarly, you can learn about your options to opt-out of mobile app tracking by certain advertising networks through your device settings. For more information about how to change these settings for Apple, Android or Windows devices, see:

Apple: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4228
Android: http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/
Windows: http://choice.microsoft.com/en-US/opt-out

Please note that opting-out of advertising networks services does not mean that you will not receive advertising while using our Sites or on other websites, nor will it prevent the receipt of interest-based advertising from third parties that do not participate in these programs. It will, however, exclude you from interest-based advertising conducted through participating networks, as provided by their policies and choice mechanisms. Choices you make are both browser and device-specific.

HOW WE SECURE YOUR INFORMATION

Driscoll's uses commercially reasonable organizational, technical and administrative means to protect your information, however, we cannot guarantee that your information will be 100% safe. You can help protect the privacy of your own information by using encryption and other techniques to prevent unauthorized interception of your personal information. You are responsible for the security of your information and/or any personal information that you transmit to us or view, download, or otherwise access when using unencrypted, public or otherwise unsecured networks.

DATA RETENTION

We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected by us, including for the purposes of complying with our data retention policies and procedures and satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements, including applicable statute of limitations periods.

OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Children Under 13:  Our Sites are intended for users over 13. If you are under 13, do not use or provide any information on the Sites. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us.

Users Outside of the United States: If you use our Sites outside of the United States, you understand and consent to the transfer of your personal information to, and the collection, processing, and storage of your personal information in, the United States and elsewhere. The laws in the U.S. and these countries regarding personal information may be different than the laws of your state or country. While Driscoll’s adheres to the principles of the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield for transfers of personal data from Driscoll’s entities in the European Economic Area (EEA) and from the United Kingdom, it does not rely on the Privacy Shield as the legal basis for such transfers, but, instead, uses a variety of legal mechanisms, including use of EU Standard Contractual Clauses, to help ensure that your rights and protections travel with your personal information. See Driscoll’s Privacy Shield Policy for more details.

Your California Privacy Rights: If you are a California resident, please see the Privacy Notice for California Residents for an explanation of additional rights you may have.
