Your rights regarding how we handle your Personal Information
When you visit and interact with the Sites (StarKist.com or StarKistFoodService.com), certain third parties may get access to certain information about you, such as your IP address, for the purpose of providing you online advertising personalized to your interests, based on the websites you visit before and after you visit our Sites. To the extent such IP addresses and other online identifiers are reasonably capable of identifying you, this third-party collection for interest-based advertising may be considered a “sale” of Personal Information depending on where you reside. This page includes further information about how to opt-out of the processing of your information for interest-based advertising if it constitutes a “sale” of your Personal Information.
This page also provides a way for you to exercise other rights and choices regarding the Personal Information we collect from you, such as your rights to submit requests to know or delete the Personal Information we gathered about you.
If you do not opt-out, what information is automatically collected through the Sites, and why?
StarKist may use third-party cookies which track IP addresses through the Sites.
Cookies are small text files stored on a user’s hard drive which contain certain data about the user. IP addresses are the unique code assigned to your computer as connected to the Internet. We use third-party “cookie” technology to track IP addresses only to obtain data about how visitors use our Sites to provide them with the best possible personalized online experience. To do this we may use third-party cookies and other tracking technologies to keep track of the type of browser (e.g., Internet Explorer, Chrome) and operating system (e.g., Windows, Macintosh) used by the visitor to the Sites, and the domain name of the visitor’s Internet service provider. We also may use third-party cookies to track the total number of visitors to our Sites in an aggregate form to allow us to update and improve our Sites. We also use third-party cookies to help us figure out which of our web pages visitors stop at and how long they stay there. This helps us keep our Sites fresh and interesting to the majority of our visitors. We use these third-party cookies and other tracking technologies to help us deliver content tailored to a visitor’s interests. You may disable cookies generally or set your browser to alert you when cookies are being sent. However, if you disable cookies, it may affect how the Sites appear and/or operate for you.
How do we use third-party cookies and other third party tracking technologies?
To opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics, you may be able to download and install the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.
The above-referenced cookies, IP addresses and marketing information will be collected and managed by our outside marketing vendors in order to provide you with targeted ads based on what you appear to be interested in as a result of your activity online, both on our Sites and elsewhere. If you opt-out, you will still see ads but they will not be personalized based on your online activity. Please note that if you disable your cookies or upgrade your browser after opting out, you will need to opt-out again. Further, if you use multiple browsers or devices you will need to execute this opt-out on each browser or device.
You can also generally opt-out of receiving targeted ads from third party advertisers and ad networks who are members of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI). You may opt-out of receiving targeted advertisements from other companies that perform interest-based advertising services, including some that we may work with, via the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA) site. Please note that when using the ad industry opt-out tools described above, you may need to execute opt-outs for each browser or device that you use, and that other companies’ opt-outs may function differently than our opt-out.
