Privacy Policy

This Web site http://www.hostessbrands.com is a Web site intended to provide an experience that is safe and secure. Hostess Brands, LLC is dedicated to safeguarding personal information we collect online. This Privacy Policy does not apply to information we collect offline. As we continue to offer our visitors new and different types of content and services, we may modify our practices from time to time. However, we will treat any personal information we collect in accordance with the Privacy Policy in effect at the time the information is collected. If there is a material change in our collection, use, or disclosure practices, a new or revised Privacy Policy will be posted on the Web site, and a notice will be sent to you via e-mail if you have provided us with an e-mail address.

I. THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT

At http://www.hostessbrands.com we collect personally identifiable information but only information that our visitors voluntarily provide to us or that is obtained through our use of cookies described below. For some activities, such as subscribing to current or future promotional sign-up list, we ask visitors to supply us with their first and last name and e-mail address. When a visitor uses our Contact Form we do collect their first & last name, mailing address, e-mail address and telephone number. When visitors come to our site, we automatically collect some non-personally identifiable information that is used to determine the number of visits to different pages on our site and to improve access to our content based on our visitors' browsers and operating system types. This information is not linked to any personal information submitted online when participating in any activities.

II. HOW WE USE THE INFORMATION

We do not sell, rent, or otherwise share our visitors' personal information with third parties except as described in this Privacy Policy. Sometimes, we use agents or contractors to provide services to our visitors, such as technical support, to help us conduct sweepstakes and notify winners. In these cases, we require the agent or contractor to keep the information confidential and to use it only for the specific services they are performing. We sometimes use non-personally identifiable information that we collect to improve the design and content of our site and to improve our visitors' experience on http://www.hostessbrands.com. We also may aggregate this information to analyze site usage, as well as to offer products, programs, or services. If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence. We will disclose information we maintain as required by law, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena. We also may disclose such information in response to a specific law enforcement agency's request. In addition, we may transfer our operations or assets. In such transactions, confidential customer or site visitor information generally is one of the transferred assets. In the event of a transaction involving the transfer of some or all of http://www.hostessbrands.comoperations, including a bankruptcy, customer and site visitor information may be one of the transferred items. We will not use or transfer personally identifiable information in ways that are materially different from the ones described above without also providing notification of such practices and obtaining consent for any materially different uses.

III. COLLECTION OF INFORMATION BY THIRD-PARTY SITES AND SPONSORS

Our site contains links to other sites whose privacy and information practices may be different from ours. Sometimes these sites might conduct contests or sweepstakes that are promoted on or in conjunction with http://www.hostessbrands.com. Visitors should consult the third party sites' privacy notices and contest rules since these sites are not covered by our Privacy Policy and may follow different procedures.

IV. COOKIES

http://www.hostessbrands.com may use the software technology called "cookies." Cookies are small text files that we upload to a visitor's computer browser to store their preferences. Cookies themselves do not contain any personally identifiable information. Although cookies could enable us to relate a visitor's use of this Web site to personal information that the visitor has provided, we do not use cookies for this purpose. We do use cookies to determine if a visitor has visited the Web site previously.

V. SECURITY

We have put in place certain physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard the information we collect online and help prevent unauthorized access to such information, maintain security of such information, and correctly use such information. However, because of the global nature of the Internet, when you give us information, that information may be sent electronically to servers outside of the country where you originally entered the information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. This site does not use security encryption measures. Therefore, information that you disclose by use of this site (as with any site that allows non-encrypted communications), by posting a message or using e-mail, potentially could be collected and used by others. This may result in unsolicited messages from third parties or use of such information by third parties for their own purposes, legal or illegal. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, http://www.hostessbrands.com cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our systems.
