The Bonne Bell Company’s Thoughts on Privacy
Access to Children
Our Website is visited and accessible to children under the age of 13. We encourage parents to be active participants in their children’s use of our Website.
ATTENTION TO ALL CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 13:
IF YOU ARE UNDER 13, WE MUST RECEIVE PERMISSION FROM YOUR PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN BEFORE YOU SEND ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION (DEFINED BELOW) TO THE BONNE BELL COMPANY ABOUT YOURSELF OVER THE INTERNET, BY E-MAIL OR BY ANY OTHER MEANS.
Parent’s Rights to their Children’s Collected Information
As a parent or guardian, you have the right to the following:
- Review both the categories of information collected and the specific information collected about your child;
- Prevent further use of the information collected about your child;
- Prevent further disclosure of information collected about your child to third parties;
- Prevent further collection of your child’s Personal Information; and
- Delete your child’s Personal Information.
Upon receipt of your request to do any of the above acts, we will verify that you are in fact the child’s parent or legal guardian. Please contact us at the address below to exercise this right.
What Personal Information We Directly Collect and How We Use It
Your child may navigate freely within our Website without providing any personally identifiable information to us. We abide by the rule under the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) that no website operator may require, as a condition of participation, that a child under the age of 13 discloses more information than is reasonably necessary.
Certain portions of our Website may collect individually identifiable information from our users, including name, address, e-mail address, telephone number and other information about a user (“Personal Information”); however, we will never collect any Personal Information from a child under the age of 13 without proper parental notice or consent under COPPA. Please see below for more information concerning specific features of our Website.

What Other Information our Automated Systems Collect and How We Use It
- Non-Personal Aggregated Website Usage Statistics
We may collect and log certain non-personally identifying information which a user’s browser makes available whenever a user visits the Website. This information may include a user’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address (a unique number assigned to every computer on the Internet), home server domain name, computer type, browser type, browser language, as well as the date and time of a user’s visit. This information does not include a user’s Personal Information. We use this information to administer, operate, develop, and improve the Website.
We may also track and store information in the aggregate as it relates to user’s movement within the Website such as the pages from which the user was referred, entry and exit points for the Website, search terms, pages a user visits, page views/impressions, access times, domain names and browser types. None of this information is linked to a user’s Personal Information.
- Cookies and other Automated Processes
We may also use web beacons on our Website. A web beacon, also known as a “web bug,” is a small, graphic image on a Web page, in a Web-based document or in an e-mail message that is designed to allow us to monitor visitors to the Website, the IP address of the computer to which the Web beacon is sent, the URL of the page from which the Web beacon comes, and the time it was viewed. None of this information is linked to a user’s Personal Information.
Information Sharing with Third Parties
We may share aggregated information with third parties, provided that it is not traceable to any particular user and will not be used to contact you. We will only do so under a contract which requires the third party assisting us to keep such information confidential.
Duty of Confidentiality
The Bonne Bell Company recognizes its duty to maintain reasonable procedures to protect the confidentiality, security and integrity of your child’s information. We employ such reasonable procedures in an effort to maintain confidentiality, security and integrity.
Limits to Confidentiality
The Bonne Bell Company will share your Personal Information only when we are required by law to do so or in the event of:
- Transactions with The Bonne Bell Company
- Sale or Transfer of Business
- User Instructions
If a user of the Website voluntarily contacts us because the user is having a problem with the Website such as purchases through our Business Partners on colorandflavorshop.com, we will require the user’s permission to investigate that purchase on behalf of the user and may need to utilize information provided by the user in course of investigating and attempting to resolve the problem. In such case, we may need to share with Business Partners information provided by the user to The Bonne Bell Company, and we will need to contact the user once we have investigated the complaint.
