Privacy Policy

1. Introduction

At Marfood USA, Inc. (“Marfood”) we take your privacy seriously, which is why we developed this Privacy Policy to explain our online information collection and use practices. Marfood may occasionally change the features and content found on this site. Marfood reserves the right, at its discretion to change, modify, add or remove portions of this privacy policy. Consequently, our privacy policy may be modified to reflect any revisions to the site. We suggest you revisit our privacy policy from time to time to be sure that you are familiar with our practices.

2.Information Collected

A.Personally Identifiable Information

In some instances, this website may collect personally identifiable information (name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, fax number, and information about your interest in and use of various products, programs and services, etc.) This information is only collected when volunteered by the user.

B. Non-personally Identifiable Information

This site also collects non-personally identifiable user information, such as Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, “cookies,” “pixel tracking,” and Internet tags and navigational data (server log files). This information is used for system management and to improve the content and navigation of the site.

We do not match personally identifiable information with non-personally identifiable information. In other words, we do not link personal information (name, etc.) with visit information, such as pages visited or files downloaded. In effect, all such visit information is anonymous.

“Cookies” are small pieces of information that are stored by your web browser software on your computer’s hard drive or temporarily in your computer’s memory. The use of cookies is now an industry standard, and users will find them on most major websites, Marfood may place and store Internet cookies on a user’s hard drive. Cookies can save any of the types of information noted above. Cookies enable us to recognize you and personalize your viewing experience on the Marfood site. We also use cookies to store user names and information that are supplied at registration. Although most web browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, if you prefer, you can decline the placement of a cookie on your hard drive by using the appropriate feature(s) of your web browser software (if available) to delete the cookie. Please note, however, that certain areas on the site will not function properly if your web browser does not accept cookies.

“Pixel tracking”, a common process which may be used in connection with advertisements on other sites, involves the use of pixel tags that are not visible to the user of the site and consist of a few lines of computer coding. Pixel tracking measures the effectiveness of these advertisements and compiles aggregate and specific usage statistics. A “pixel tag” is an invisible tag placed on certain pages of websites you may visit and is used to track an individual user’s activity. We may access these pixel tags to identify activity and interests that may allow us to better match our offers with your interests. For example, if you visit our website from an advertisement on another site, the pixel tag will allow the advertiser to track that their advertisement brought you to the Marfood website. If you visit our website and we link you to another site we may also be able to determine that you were sent to and/or transacted with a third party website. This data is collected for use in our marketing and research. Personally identifiable information about you is not collected by the third party advertising company, nor is any tracking information generated from the pixel tag allowed to be used by them for any other purpose other than to report website activity to us.

3. Use of Information

We will use the information you submit to improve the Marfood website and to better provide information about Marfood and its clients that may be of interest to you. You will only receive an e-mail from us for information you have requested or as confirmation of information that you submitted (i.e. contact form). You may opt-out of receiving information from Marfood at any time by following the unsubscribe information provided in the e-mail or in writing by contacting:

4. Information Disclosure Policy

Any personally identifiable information you submit to us is for exclusive use by Marfood or other entities that are involved in the operation or fulfillment purposes of this site. We do not sell, license, trade or rent personal information about our users to third parties for direct marketing or any other purposes. In the event of a merger, acquisition, or change of control of Marfood, customer data would be considered a business asset and would be transferred. We will disclose information we maintain when required to do so by law, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena. We may also disclose personal information as required by law or to protect the safety and security of our users.

6. Site Security and Disclaimer

We have implemented a number of security features throughout the Marfood site that are intended to prevent the unauthorized release of or access to the user information we collect online. For example, database information is firewall protected, password protected and our web security is reviewed on a regular basis. Access to personal information is limited to key management personnel and our IT department. While we strive to create a secure and reliable site for our users, the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted over the Internet cannot be 100 percent guaranteed. Users should keep in mind that any information submitted through an Internet transaction is potentially accessible to the public, and consequently, can be collected and used by others without their consent.
