[Bright People Foods] and the third parties we work with (e.g., our service providers and business partners) may collect information from the computer, tablet, phone or another device that you use to access our websites (“Websites”) or that you use to open an email or click on an advertisement from us (“Communications and Advertisements”) (Websites and Communications and Advertisements are collectively referred to herein as the “Sites”).

- Overview of Cookies and Other Collection Technologies
Cookies are small text files that are stored on your browser or device by websites, applications, online media, and advertisements. They are used for various purposes, including but not limited to authenticating users, remembering user preferences and settings, determining content popularity, delivering and measuring the effectiveness of advertising campaigns, analyzing site traffic and trends, and generally understanding the online behaviors and interests of users who interact with the Sites.
There are different types of cookies, such as “first-party cookies” and “third-party cookies.” First-party cookies are cookies served by the entity that operates the domain you are visiting. Third-party cookies are cookies served by the organizations that are not operating the domain you are visiting.
Cookies may also have different durations. Session cookies last only while your browser is open, and are automatically deleted when you close your browser session. Persistent cookies may survive after your browser is closed. For example, persistent cookies may recognize your device when you re-open your browser and browse the Internet again.
Other collection technologies we may use in connection with our Sites include:
- Web beacons or tags (small images embedded into websites or emails that send information about your computer, tablet, phone, or other device when you visit our Websites or click on an Advertisement from us);
- Websites and log files (which we tend to create automatically in connection with access and use of our website, and the items you purchase);
- Third-party advertisement and analytics services – including but not limited to Google Analytics (opt-out by installing Google Analytics’ opt-out browser add-on and opt-out of interest-based Google ads using Google’s Ads Settings), Facebook Custom Audiences and Instagram Ads – to help us understand and analyze how visitors use the online Sites and serve ads on our behalf across the Internet.
- Flash cookies and local storage collection technologies (which may be placed using Adobe Flash software—learn more about privacy and storage settings for Flash cookies here);
- Application programming interfaces (APIs), which may enable the third parties we work with to collect information directly from our Websites; and
- Other technologies (which may be similar to or different than the methods noted above).
- Cookie Types and Purposes
While the cookies used in connection with our Sites may change from time to time, they generally fall into the below categories:
|Authentication||Purpose: To verify your account and determine when you’re logged in so we can make it easier for you to access our Websites. For example, we may use these cookies to remember your browser, so you do not have to keep logging into our Websites.|
|Security and Site Integrity||Purpose: To support or enable certain security features to support our Websites. For example, we may use these cookies to help us identify when someone may be attempting to access your account with us, for instance, by rapidly guessing passwords.|
|Localization||Purpose: To help provide a localized experience when using the Websites. For example, we may use these cookies to remember your preferred language preferences. We may also use these cookies to capture geolocation data to estimate shipping costs.|
|Performance||Purpose: To collect information about how you interact with our Sites and to help us improve them. For example, we may use these cookies to determine if you have interacted with a certain Site.|
|Advertising||Purpose: To deliver advertisements, to make advertisements more relevant and meaningful to consumers, and to track the efficiency of our advertising campaigns. For example, we and our ad partners may rely on information collected through these cookies to serve you ads on other websites that may be interesting to you. Similarly, our partners may use a cookie, attribution service, or another similar technology to determine whether we’ve served an ad and how it performed or provide us with information about how you interact with them.|
|Site Features and Services||Purpose: To provide functionality that helps us deliver products and services. For example, we may use these cookies to help you log in by pre-filling fields.|
