Privacy Policy

The Extra Pay Facts website at www.extrapayfacts.com (the “Website”) is hosted by the California Grocers Association (“we” and “ours”).  We created this privacy policy (this “Policy”) to inform you of our practices collecting, storing and using the information we collect when you use the Website. The purpose of the Website is to inform the public of the facts behind extra pay proposals.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT

Personal Information

We may ask you to provide personal information, like your name and email address to send you emails with additional information or if you request certain information from us.  We do not collect personal information unless you voluntarily provide it to us. If you decide you do not want to receive future communications from us you can opt out of any email communications you receive from us by contacting us at [email protected].  

We collect your personal information you voluntarily provide through our vendor CrowdSkout who then houses the data.  CrowdSkout uses the latest encryption to ensure your personal information is secure. Information is sitting behind two layers of authentication that uses OAuth technology to ensure only valid connections and requests are allowed.  Their database servers are protected by a firewall that is only acceptable to CrowdSkout’s application.  However, no internet communication is ever completely secure or error-free.  As such, we cannot accept responsibility for any personal information that is compromised in this manner that is outside of our control.

We and CrowdSkout do not sell your personal information to any third party.

Non-Personal Information

Usage Information

We track navigational data and information about how you use our Website through our use of cookies, internet tags and web beacons. If you do not want to accept cookies from our Website, you can set most Internet browsers to refuse cookies or to notify you when a cookie is sent, but be aware that in such circumstances, certain features of our Website might not function properly. Included in the usage information we collect is the address of the website you visited just prior to navigating to our Website and the time and date of your visit. We also may track the content and pages you visit on the Website.

We may use the Website usage information to improve the Website and its content.

Third Party Ad-Serving Companies

From time to time, we may allow third parties to display advertisements on our Website, which may be third-party ad-serving companies or ad networks. Some of these ad networks may place a persistent cookie on the Website that would enable the network to recognize you each time you view an advertisement on our Website. Such activities may enable third party ad-serving companies or ad networks to collect information about your location, your device and which ads you click on.  This information may allow those companies or ad networks to deliver targeted advertisements to you. The practices of these third-party ad-serving companies and ad networks are not subject to this Policy, and are instead governed by their own privacy policies. Note that the information these parties collect is non-personal information and cannot specifically identify you.

SOCIAL NETWORKING SITES AND LINKS

We may offer services that allow you to share information about our Website or its content with third-party social media networking sites such as Facebook, Google Plus, Twitter, and others.  If you engage with our Website through third-party social networking sites, you may be allowing us access to certain information stored on those social networking sites, such as your public profile, list of friends, followers or connections, etc. The information we have access to from the social networking sites varies by website and is controlled by your privacy settings on that website. Any information we collect with respect to your use of functionality with social networking sites shall be treated in accordance with this Policy.

We may disclose your personal information to third parties:

  • To certain of our employees who have a need to know such information to perform their duties.
  • To purchasers or similar parties in connection with the sale, merger, or reorganization of the Website or our business, provided that the buyer agrees to comply with this Policy.
  • To affiliated companies or strategic alliance partners, provided they comply with this Policy.
  • To law enforcement in response to requests, court orders, or other legal processes or if we believe that such disclosure is necessary to investigate, prevent, or respond to illegal activities, fraud, physical threats to you or others, or as otherwise required by any applicable law.
  • When we believe disclosure is necessary to protect the safety of our users or the Website.

JURISDICTION

The Website is based in the United States, so your personal information will be processed in the United States.  Data protection laws of the United States may not provide the same level of protection as what is provided in other countries, so if you use the Website or otherwise submit your personal information to us, you consent to the collection and use of your personal information in the United States.

CHILDREN’S PERSONAL INFORMATION

The Website is intended for adult audiences and is not intended for children under eighteen (18) years of age.  We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from users under the age of eighteen (18). Please notify us if you believe we have collected a child’s personal information, and we will take reasonable steps to delete it.

PROTECTION OF INFORMATION — SECURITY

We are committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of up-to-date security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store any personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access. These systems are located in controlled facilities. When we transmit highly confidential information over the Internet, we protect it through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

You should keep in mind that no internet communication is ever completely secure or error-free.  As such, we cannot accept responsibility for any personal information that is compromised in this manner that is outside of our control.
