PERSONAL INFORMATION AND HOW WE USE IT
We are committed to ensuring your privacy. However, when you visit our web site, it will be necessary for us to request personal information about you should you, for example, choose to make a purchase from our e-store, participate in sweepstakes or other special promotions, and/or request a newsletter. Goose Island Beer Co. only collects personal information when it is submitted by a user and submission of personal information is entirely voluntary.
The information we may ask you to input includes your name, address, telephone number, email address, date of birth, credit card information, and shipping information. We collect some or all of this information when you purchase items through our electronic commerce offerings, register for a sweepstakes and/or choose to participate in other interactive offerings on our web site. We use the personal information you provide to process purchases and entries for sweepstakes, to deliver products and prizes to you, and to communicate with you in connection with your use of other interactive areas of the web site. We may also send emails regarding promotions, new offerings or features. In addition, we may send emails in response to emails that we receive from users of the site.
COOKIES AND HOW WE USE THEM
When you use our site, we may assign cookie files to you, which are a small amount of data we send to your web browser. Cookies enable the computers operating our web site to differentiate between visitors and to track the patterns of activities engaged in by different visitors. By tracking such activities, the computers operating our web site can recognize a visitor and customize certain features for that visitor. We use these cookies to ensure that we do not receive multiple sweepstakes entries from the same individual. We may also use aggregated, non-identifiable data regarding persons who visit our site in order to learn more about the use of the site and how we can improve it.
You may be able to modify your browser preferences to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set, or to reject all cookies. If you choose not to accept cookies, you may not be able to use those functions of the web site that require registration, such as sweepstakes or electronic commerce.
WHO ELSE RECIEVES YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?
CHOICE REGARDING THE COLLECTION AND USE OF YOUR INFORMATION
You may avoid the collection of personal information by declining to purchase any products from our e-store, and by not participating in sweepstakes or other interactive aspects of this site for which we require such information. Individuals who wish to purchase products without entering information on our web site may visit the company store at our Chicago brewery.
We provide users the opportunity to opt out of receiving promotional materials via emails. These opt-out features are located in the registration areas for purchases, newsletter sign-up, and sweepstakes.
HOW DO WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION?
While no transmission over the Internet can ever be 100% secure, we try to protect your data by using SSL (secure socket layer) encryption, an industry standard. However, we are not responsible for any unauthorized interception of such data. Please take care not to share your password with anyone else.
