Kontos Foods’ Privacy Policy

Kontos Foods is committed to protecting your privacy and ensuring your personal information is protected.

This Privacy Policy explains the types of personal information we may collect and how we use and protect that information. This includes information collected by telephone, direct marketing campaigns, sweepstakes, our Social Media Platform, through our website, and branded pages on third party platforms and applications accessed or used through such websites or third party platforms. This Privacy Policy is hereby incorporated into and forms part of the terms and conditions of use of the applicable Kontos Foods’ website.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the information practices of:

  • Third party companies (including, without limitation, their websites, and/or applications) which we do not control.
  • Individuals that Kontos Foods does not manage or employ.

These Third Party sites may have their own privacy policies and terms and conditions and we encourage you to read them before using them.

Your Consent

Kontos Foods will not collect, use or disclose your personal information without your consent. By using a Kontos Foods’ site, you are consenting to Kontos Foods the collecting, using and disclosing your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Kontos Foods may ask you to provide additional consent if we need to use your personal information for purposes not covered by this Privacy Policy.  You are not obliged to provide such consent, but if you decide not to your participation in certain activities may be restricted.  If you provide additional consent, the terms of that consent shall prevail in the event of any conflict with the terms of this Privacy Policy.

If you do not agree to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information in this way, please do not use the Kontos Foods’ site or otherwise provide Kontos Foods with your personal information.

Minors
Kontos Foods’ sites are designed and intended primarily for use by consenting adults.  Where a Kontos Foods’ site is intended for use by a younger audience, we will attempt to obtain consent from a parent or guardian before we collect personal information where we feel it is appropriate, or where it is required by applicable data protection laws and regulations (the age at which consent is necessary may vary).  If you are a child over the age where parental consent is required, you should still review the terms of this Privacy Policy with your parent or guardian to make sure you understand and accept them.

If we discover that we have collected information without consent from a parent or guardian where such consent should have been obtained, we will delete that information.
