Information Collection & Use

PB+J uses the information collected about you to process your order and to provide a better purchasing experience. We may request that you voluntarily supply personal information for purposes such as receiving correspondence, registering on a website, making purchases, participating in online surveys or market research. If you elect to participate, PB+J may require personally identifiable information, including your name, mailing address, phone number, bank information, credit card information, or e-mail address. When you submit personal information to PB+J, you understand and agree that we may access, store, and use your information.

We may use your information to communicate with you about products, services, and future promotions. Out of respect for your privacy, we offer you the option not to receive these types of communications. If you no longer wish to receive special offers or promotional notifications, please follow the unsubscribe instructions included in each communication. We may also send you order confirmation emails. Generally, you may not opt-out of these communications, which are not promotional in nature.

We will retain your information for as long as needed to provide you products and/or services. If you wish to request that we no longer use your information to provide you products and/or services, please contact your bank. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

If you choose to join the Friends of PB+J Referral Program, you will be asked for your name, e-mail address, and mailing address in order for PB+J to accurately send you compensation for your services, should you sell a PB+J product under the applicable terms of the Friends of PB+J Referral Program.

Information Sharing and Your Choices

PB+J does not share, rent or sell your personal information with third parties for them to market their products and services directly to you. We only share your personal information with companies that provide services to help us with our business activities such as shipping your order, billing processing or offering customer service. These companies are authorized to use your personal information only as necessary to provide these services to us.

We reserve the right to disclose information about you

  • as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena, or similar legal process
  • when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request,
  • if PB+J is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our website of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information,
  • to any other third party with your prior consent to do so.

Security

PB+J is committed to protecting your personal information. Security measures are in place on this website to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. Additionally, we utilize the appropriate physical, technical, and administrative procedures to safeguard the information we collect. We offer industry-standard security measures available through your Web browser. When you are on this Website, the sensitive information you provide such as credit card and financial information is encrypted with secure socket layer (SSL) technology and scrambled en route and decoded once it reaches us. Credit card numbers are used only for processing payments and are not used for other purposes. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. Please remember that e-mail, which is different from the encrypted sessions above, is not secure. Therefore, we ask that you do not send sensitive information such as credit card or account numbers to us via an unsecured e-mail message.

Information you provide will be safeguarded according to strict standards of security and confidentiality. PB+J recognizes and appreciates the importance of responsible use of the information you choose to provide. We take steps to require that our vendors, consultants, suppliers, and contractors observe our Privacy Policy with respect to security and the collection, use, and exchange of our customers' information. They are expected to abide by the Privacy Policy when conducting work for us and are prohibited from using your personally identifiable information for any other purpose.

For our partner service providers, Squarespace, Shopify, and Stripe, you are bound by and responsible to adhere to the individual Privacy Policies and Terms of Services outlined on their individual websites. You are solely responsible to make yourself familiar with these terms.

Tracking Activity on our Website

In order to make your visit to our Website as productive as possible, we track activity on our website. However, we want you to know that the tracking technology we use does not identify any personal information about you. It cannot retrieve data from your hard drive, pass on computer viruses, or capture any personal information about you, such as your name, address, phone number, or email address. We only know who you are if you make that known to us. 

As is true with most Websites, we gather certain information automatically when individuals browse our site and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this non-personal information to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole, in order to improve the functionality of the Website. 

We use cookies to improve your shopping experience. Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored by your Web browser on your computer's hard drive.

Social Media

The Website provides users the opportunity to interact and post content through various social media sites including, but not limited to, Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Instagram, Flickr, YouTube, and Vimeo. Your interactions with such tools, and any information you provide in connection with these interactions are publicly viewable outside of the Website domain. Each social media site has its own privacy policies, which may be more or less protective than this Policy. If you do not wish for this information to be disclosed, then you should not use these tools. We are not responsible for information you choose to post in this forum.
