We take our responsibility to our young consumers seriously. Our website has been designed primarily for our adult consumers to enjoy, but it is also accessible and safe for kids of all ages. Children under the age of 13 and their parents should review the section of this policy called “A Note To Parents,” which discusses the special steps we take for young customers who visit our website.
How We Collect Information
Domain Name Recognition
Our web servers automatically recognize a visitor’s domain name. They do not recognize a visitor’s e-mail.
Personal information which may be obtained through cookies is not sold, rented or provided to third parties and is not used internally by Annabelle Candy Co. for any purpose other than to enhance your experience on our web site.
Information Actively Provided by Our Visitors
Before entering our website, we ask our visitors to tell us whether they are under 13. As we explain in the Note To Parents, we take children’s privacy seriously, and we do not collect personal information from visitors under age 13.
There are several reasons visitors age 13 or over may choose to provide personally identifiable information about themselves or other people. For example:
Questions: Our visitors can submit comments or ask questions. The only personally identifiable information that we collect is the sender’s e-mail address. We do not save any personally identifiable information associated with comments, and we only save e-mail addresses associated with questions in order to respond to those questions.
Promotions & Sweepstakes: We frequently offer promotions and sweepstakes on our website or through social media. In order to enter a promotion and/or sweepstake or to access certain web site content, we might require you to register online. During the registration process, we collect information necessary for prize fulfillment and will not share this information with any third party companies unless it is for prize fulfillment purposes. If you win a prize, additional information may be collected offline for tax and prize fulfillment purposes.
The first initial, last name, hometown and state of all winners will be included on a Winners List. The Winners List will be provided upon request and as required by law. Information required for tax purposes, the Winner’s List or other information required by law is kept as required by law. We also may use the email address that you provide to send you promotional offers if you opt in.
Coupons: Sometimes we offer coupons by mail to web visitors who provide us with their name and mailing address. The information provided may also be used to facilitate that same visitor’s entry into a sweepstakes or contest so that the consumer does not have to repeatedly enter the same information.
E-mail Newsletters: You can register to receive e-mail newsletters or updates in the future by providing your e-mail address. Any e-mail you receive from Annabelle Candy Co. will allow you to change your preference or “unsubscribe” from this informational service at any time. At the bottom of each promotional email, there is a link to a page where you can immediately remove your subscription.
Other Features: There may be other features available on our website that require some personally identifiable information to use the feature.
Unless we tell you otherwise, Annabelle Candy Co. will use the information for the purpose the information was provided.
We have some business partners with whom we may operate our website and share information. For example, on occasion we may offer a sweepstakes jointly with another company. In such instances, information may be shared with the co-sponsor so that the sweepstakes may be conducted.
Aggregate information about which pages our visitors access or visit (for example, to enter a visitor in a contest or to send the visitor information) is only used for internal review as we continue to improve our web site. Non-personally identifiable aggregate information is shared with third parties. If you prefer not to allow us to collect this information, you can do so by turning off the cookies in your browser, although some areas of our website may not function properly if you do. We do not rent, sell, or share e-mail addresses with any other company or organization.
Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us on-line in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
Our Commitment To Data Security
To prevent unauthorized access, use or disclosure of your personal information, and to maintain data accuracy, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the personal information we collect on-line. Annabelle Candy Co. maintains its data on servers located in the United States. We will only keep your personal information for as long as it remains necessary or relevant for the purposes stated above or as otherwise required by law.
Note To Parents
Our website has been designed primarily for our adult consumers to enjoy, but it has also been designed to be accessible, safe for kids of all ages, and to adhere to all applicable laws and regulations. There are some extra precautions that we take, however, with respect to collecting information from children under 13.
All visitors to our website are asked to indicate whether they are under 13. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. Everyone is invited to play our games, but children under 13 may not enter promotional contests, sign up to receive e-mail newsletters, or use the other features of our website that require visitors to provide personal information.

Our policy is to link only to other sites that are appropriate for visitors to our web site. However, content on web sites can change quickly, so we cannot always guarantee the appropriateness of the content of sites we link to. When you leave our site for another website, you will go first to a bumper page informing you that you are leaving our website.
