Krispy Kreme collects personally identifiable information on the Site, including in areas such as (i) in the "Friends of Krispy Kreme" section, and (ii) during online shopping. Personal information includes, among other things, a users name, credit card number, address, telephone number and email address or other Internet address. Fields in which we collect such required information will be marked with an "**". We use the above information to fulfil product orders. We also may ask you for your date of birth, gender, and information about your interests and other personal information so that we can combine such information with the information described above. We use that information so that both you and we can take advantage of the interactivity of the Internet to provide you with services and offers, but you may always choose whether to respond or not. We also receive personally identifiable information when you apply for a job in the "Career" section of the Site. Any such information gathered through the Career section of the Site will be used solely to evaluate whether your background and experience makes you a candidate for a career with Krispy Kreme.
In addition to personal information, Krispy Kreme may also gather non-personally identifiable information, which may be used by Krispy Kreme. Generally, "non-personally identifiable information" means information that is collected through "traffic data" and may entail the use of "cookies", "IP addresses", "pixel tags" or other numeric codes used to identify a computer or monitor how or when a user accesses the Site or communications.
Krispy Kreme collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers. An IP address is a number that's automatically assigned to your computer whenever you're surfing the Web. Web servers - the big computers that "serve" up Web pages - automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When guests request pages from the Site, our servers log the guests' IP addresses. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. This means that a user's session will be logged, but the user remains anonymous to us.
Certain visitors to our Site may have previously received targeted promotional materials relative to the Site. Krispy Kreme shares Site usage information about such visitors with a reputable third-party advertising company for the purpose of targeting future campaigns and upgrading visitor information used in reporting statistics. For this purpose, we and our third-party advertising company use pixel tags (sometimes also called "clear GIFs"). Pixel tags are small graphic files, invisible to the human eye, which allow websites or other online services to track users. Krispy Kreme and our third-party advertising company uses pixel tags in HTML-enabled email to track whether (and when) the recipient opened the message. We do not use pixel tags to identify specific individuals, but rather to gather statistics regarding the receipt of the HTML-enabled emails that we send.
You may occasionally receive information on products, services, special deals, and a newsletter. If you have submitted information to the "Career" portion of the Site, we may also contact you with regard to potential jobs. Out of respect for your privacy we present the option to not receive these types of communications. If at any time you wish to opt out of receiving further communications from our Site please contact email@example.com. If you wish to subscribe to our newsletter, we ask for contact information such as name and email address.
If the personal information we hold about you is inaccurate, incomplete or out-of-date, please contact us and we will take reasonable steps to correct this information. To review or update your personal information, or if you wish your personal information to be deleted, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
