5. BUMBLE BEE’S USE OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGIES
The following section describes various types of technologies we use when you interact with us online and your choices regarding those technologies:
Cookies, Pixel Tags, and Flash Cookies
A Cookie is a small piece of computer code sent by a website and stored on the hard disk of your computer. A Pixel Tag (also known as a tracking pixel, web beacon, or clear GIF) is an embedded image on a website that may register a user’s website activity.
The Cookies Bumble Bee uses do not contain any Personal Information and cannot profile your system or collect information from your hard drive. Although you may receive Cookies from many different websites, each Cookie can only be read by the web server that originally issued it. You are not even identified by name or e-mail address, just by a unique string of numbers that we assign the first time you come to the Website.
At Bumble Bee we use two (2) kinds of Cookies: (1) Persistent Cookies and (2) Session Cookies.
Persistent Cookies last from visit to visit; they remain on your hard drive until you erase them or they expire. We use persistent Cookies to help you navigate the Website more efficiently. For example, we use persistent Cookies to show you items you have previously browsed. The persistent Cookies we use are Google Analytics, Google Tag Manager, Pinterest, and Google Adwords.
Session Cookies exist only for as long as your browser remains open. We use Session Cookies, for example, to collect your information when you subscribe to our email service.

Website Optimization Services
Bumble Bee shares Personal Information with our service providers’ tools to understand and optimize website performance and enhance website usability for our consumers. These tools run in the background of the Website analyzing the Website usage information and then returning reports to us through an encrypted connection. Our service providers are required to maintain data securely and confidentially, and are not permitted to share data collected with parties other than Bumble Bee.
Bumble Bee uses third-party advertising companies to serve interest-based advertisements. These companies compile information from various online sources (including mobile-enabled browsers and applications) to match user profiles with Bumble Bee ads we believe will be most relevant, interesting and timely based on that user profile.
Bumble Bee has relationships with several social networks companies. These companies have specific interest-based ads programs that match people that have shown interest in Bumble Bee through the Website or other services and platforms (such as Facebook and Google properties). This allows us to deliver relevant, interest-based ads on those companies’ networks.
For information about managing your preferences for these programs, see the MANAGING YOUR PREFERENCES section below.

Our goal at Bumble Bee is to provide a safe Internet environment for you and your children. Children and young adults are able to explore the Websites, although we do not actively promote the Website to children under 18 years of age. We do not knowingly collection information from children. We recognize there are unique issues raised about the protection of children’s privacy over the Internet.

- entice children by the prospect of a special game, prize or other activity, to divulge more information than is needed to participate in the activity;
- use or disclose on-line contact information without prior parental consent or parental notification, which will include an opportunity for the parent to prevent use of the information and participation in the activity. Without prior parental consent, on-line information will only be used to respond directly to the child’s request and will not be used for other purposes without prior parental consent; or
- enable children to publicly post or otherwise distribute personally identifiable contact information without prior parental consent.
We urge parents to spend time with their children on the Website to learn more Bumble Bee and our delicious recipes.
