A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user’s computer for record-keeping purposes. We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies on our websites. We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our site. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. Persistent cookies enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance their experience on our site. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser’s “help” file.
If you reject cookies, you may still use our websites, but your ability to use some areas of our sites will be limited and we will not be able to provide you with the most convenient experience.
As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, the operating system you may be using (e.g., Windows XP or Mac OS), a date/time stamp of when you visited our site and click-stream data.
We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyse aggregate trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.
DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION.
Except as provided in this policy, we will not disclose personal information about you without your prior consent or for the primary purpose for which we received it (e.g., to fill a product order). Like many companies, however, we may share aggregate information about people who use our site (for example, the number of people who cook chicken most often for their main meal) to business partners and other third parties.
COMPLIANCE WITH LAW.
Under certain circumstances, it is possible that personal information may be subject to disclosure pursuant to judicial or other legal requirements, such as warrants, subpoenas or court orders. McCormick will comply with any court order or other legal process and will provide your personal information if required in any legal proceeding. We also may release personal information when we believe in good faith that such release is appropriate to protect the rights, property or safety of McCormick users, employees or others. This may include, for example, exchanging information with other organisations for fraud protection and/or credit risk reduction.
