POWERED BY CHOCOLATE MILK

Welcome to poweredbychocolatemilk.com (the “Website”). This site is collectively managed and operated by BC Dairy Association, Alberta Milk, Saskatchewan Milk Marketing Board (SaskMILK) and Dairy Farmers of Manitoba, (collectively “Milk West”).

Milk West recognizes your right to privacy and is strongly committed to protecting the privacy of all visitors to this Website and of all eligible participants in programs, offers and/or contests such as the Powered by Chocolate Milk Contest (the “Contest”), offered and/or enabled through this Website.

The intent of this Privacy Policy is to detail our policies and procedures regarding the collection, use and/or disclosure of personal information of visitors to this Website and of all eligible participants in programs, offers and/or contests such as the Powered by Chocolate Milk Contest, offered and/or enabled through this Website. This Privacy Policy also lets you know what to do if you do not want your Personal Information collected when you visit our Website and how you can change or delete information you have already provided us.

Certain programs offered and/or enabled by this Website may require that you provide us with Personal Information including but not limited to your email address. You are not eligible to participate in these programs and may not provide this Website with your email address or any other Personal Information unless you are 13 years of age or over, so this functionality is not available to those under the age of 13 years.  

Please review this privacy policy in detail. If you do not agree to the terms and conditions of this privacy policy, please do not visit our Website.

COLLECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, "Personal Information", as referenced in this Privacy Policy, means personally-identifiable information including, without limitation, your name, street address, telephone number, email address and date of birth.

When you are visiting our Website you may be asked for your Personal Information in order to access or participate in certain content, contests and/or offers. Please be assured that Milk West will not collect any Personal Information unless and until you provide this information to us voluntarily. When you provide us with Personal Information, you are authorizing and consenting to use by Milk West of that information in accordance with the terms and conditions of the current Privacy Policy. If you do not want Milk West to have access to your Personal Information, please do not provide it on this Website.

This Website may also collect Personal Information from you about a third party (e.g. allow you to send an email to a friend) in which case we will need that person's name and email address. Please only provide the names and email addresses of those individuals from whom you have received permission to provide their name and email address to Milk West, and by whom an email from you or Milk West would not be considered spam. Please note that we use such information only for the specified purpose (e.g. to send the email) and we will not contact the third party again, nor retain their Personal Information, unless and until the third party contacts us.

HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

Any Personal Information that you provide will only be used for the express purpose for which it was collected. For instance, if you provide your Personal Information for the purposes of entering the Contest, your Personal Information will be used only for that purpose (e.g. administering the contest).

At the point of collection of Personal Information, you may be given the opportunity to opt-in to receive future communication from Milk West. If you expressly opt-in to receive future communication from Milk West, your Personal Information may also be used by Milk West, our constituent dairy organizations (BC Dairy Association, Alberta Milk, Saskatchewan Milk Marking Board (SaskMilk) and Dairy Farmers of Manitoba) and their respective authorized agents to contact you regarding other promotions or products that may be of interest to you. If you do not want to be contacted by us concerning such products or services, please do not opt-in to such use of your Personal Information. In addition, at any time you may let us know that you wish to discontinue such mailings by using the unsubscribe link within the email or by contacting us (see "Who to Contact" below).

COLLECTION AND USE OF NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION VIA THE WEBSITE
