INFORMATION WE COLLECT. You may access the McCormick Store without providing any personal information (although information may still be collected from you through cookies). However, most visitors wish to enhance their experience by using various website features, such as receiving notice of special events and promotions, making purchases, or posting product reviews. We and our service providers collect personal information from you as you activate various features in the McCormick Store.
We collect most information directly from you, such as your name, contact details (postal or email address), account information (user name, password), product order details (items, quantities, order history), phone number, and any other information you provide when you contact us. We collect this information when you create an account, make purchases, sign up to receive our newsletter, post product reviews, or contact us with questions, comments, or requests. If you choose to post reviews or rate products in the McCormick Store, please be aware that any personal information you provide in such posts can be read, collected, or used by anyone who visits the McCormick Store or anyone with whom we share such information. We are not responsible for the personal information you choose to submit through these features on our website.
We also obtain certain information about you from third parties, including publically available information or confirmation of successful payment in connection with a particular purchase order. You may choose to interact with social media tools (e.g., like buttons, share buttons, or login services) on the Site or you may choose to interact with us via social media. When you do so, we collect information from your social media account, such as your friends or contacts, profile picture, birthdate, gender, or other profile-related information and any other information you have opted to share via the platform. The information we obtain from such third party services depends on your account/privacy settings with those third parties and the third parties’ privacy policies.
The McCormick Store does not collect or receive any payment information. Instead, the McCormick Store will direct you to the website of our service provider that processes payment information. Once you have completed the payment process on the third-party website, you will be directed back to the McCormick Store to receive order confirmation.
You may opt out of receiving marketing communications at any time by clicking on the opt-out link located in each email we send.
We also may anonymize your personal information in such a way that you may not reasonably be re-identified, and may use this anonymized information for any other purpose.
In order to purchase products through the McCormick Store, you must provide a shipping address within the continental United States. Accordingly, we will process your personal information in the United States and your information will be subject to the laws of the United States. In addition, we or our service providers may transfer your personal information outside the United States. If you are from another country, U.S. law may not provide the same level of protection of your personal information as your home country, and your personal information may be available to the U.S. government or its agencies under a lawful order made in the United States.
We disclose your personal information to our service providers in order to operate the McCormick Store and fulfill your orders. We are committed to using trusted service providers that agree to keep your information confidential. Service providers help us with our business operations, such as fulfilling purchase orders, delivering marketing or promotional communications, hosting the website for the McCormick Store, and offering e-commerce services.
And like many companies, we may share de-identified information in reports on user demographics and traffic patterns.
YOUR CHOICES. If you create an account on our website, you may view and change the personal information you have provided through your account profile. As mentioned above, if you no longer wish to receive marketing communications or other emails from us, you may opt out of such communications using the “opt out” link at the bottom of every email. If you have any other questions, please contact us using the Contact Us feature of the website or the contact information provided below.
CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS. If you reside in California and have provided your personal information to us, you may request information once per calendar year about our disclosures of certain categories of your personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. Such requests must be submitted to us in writing at the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
SECURITY. We have administrative, technical, and physical safeguards designed to safeguard the information collected by the McCormick Store. However, no information system can be 100% secure, so we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your information. Moreover, we are not responsible for the security of information you transmit to the McCormick Store over networks that we do not control, including Internet and wireless networks.
LINKS TO THIRD-PARTY WEBSITES. This website may contain links or may link you to other sites that are not owned or controlled by McCormick. For example, to complete a purchase, you will be directed to our trusted third-party service provider for payment processing, then directed back to the McCormick Store to view your order confirmation. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of these other sites. Third parties may use your personal information in accordance with their privacy policies, which may differ from ours. We recommend that you carefully review third parties’ privacy policies to understand their privacy and information usage practices.
