Our Collection and Use of Personal Information and Non-Personal Information
Summit Brands does not require visitors to submit personal information to visit our Websites. Summit Brands only collects personal information from visitors to our Websites on a voluntary basis. Visitors may be required to submit personal information to register for specific promotions or participate in certain online programs, surveys, newsletters or other transactions or activities; such submission of personal information, however, is deemed to be voluntary. On a particular Summit Brands registration page, we may request personal information such as, without limitation, the visitor’s date of birth, gender, e-mail address, telephone number, and/or other contact and demographic information. Summit Brands reserves the right to limit participation in particular programs or promotions based on eligibility factors, including age. Summit Brands does not knowingly collect any personal information from children under 13 years of age.
Summit Brands may collect non-personal information from online visitors, such as the visitor’s browser type, operating system and domain name. The non-personal information we collect enables us to track the total number of visitors to each of our sites in an aggregate form, and is used by Summit Brands to improve and update our Websites, products and services.
Summit Brands uses information submitted by visitors as described at the time information is collected, and to keep track of visitors' participation in our promotions and programs, to respond to comments or questions, to notify a visitor if he or she is the potential winner of a promotion, to send special messages regarding our Websites, products, programs or promotions, to provide visitors with access to special areas or features of our Website(s), and for internal and business purposes.
Our Disclosure of Collected Personal Information and Non-Personal Information
Summit Brands may disclose personal information to comply with a subpoena, applicable law or process, if Summit Brands believes it is necessary to prevent imminent physical harm or financial loss, to report suspected illegal activity or to protect our company or the privacy or safety of visitors to our Websites. Summit Brands may hire trusted companies to help us with our Websites, programs and promotions, and those companies may have limited access to personal information for the sole purpose of performing their services, subject to confidentiality obligations.
Non-personal information may be shared with third parties at the discretion of Summit Brands.
Social Media Platforms and Other Websites

If you choose to do so, depending on your social media privacy settings, the personal information that you post, transmit or otherwise make available on the social media platform may be viewed and/or used by others. Summit Brands does not control and is not responsible for any use of your personal information by or through the social media platform. By linking to a social media platform, you assume the risk that the personal information you provide on that platform may be viewed and/or used by third parties for any purposes.
Summit Brands uses appropriate industry standard means, including technical safeguards, to protect any sensitive information that might be submitted on our Websites. We treat data as an asset that must be protected and use lots of tools (encryption, passwords, physical security, etc.) to protect your personal information and non-personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure. However, as you probably know, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, and other users may abuse or misuse your personal information that they collect from our Websites. Therefore, although we work very hard to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private. We will not be liable for damages related to any unlawful access to your information unless said access is due to our gross negligence or intentional act. Summit Brands does not tolerate spam.
