This includes information that can identify or contact you ("personal information"), including your first and last name; your email address; your current location, including zip code, city and state; and any other non-public information about you that is associated with or linked to any of the foregoing information.
We may also receive and store other information from you, including your recommendations, evaluations, survey responses, feedback, and forum submissions; contest information that you provide; information that you submit through our mobile application, including in-store pricing and photos of products; store-related information that you provide to us or to which you grant us access, including grocery membership information, loyalty card numbers, grocery store logons, and purchasing history; and information about your purchasing preferences, including which products you search for and purchase on a regular basis, products that you have denoted as among your favorites, your store preferences and your attribute settings (including allergens, diet preferences, etc.).
You can choose not to provide information to us, but in general some information about you is required in order for you to sign up as a user of the MissionControl service, complete a shopper profile, ask us a question, or fully utilize our services or products. You may opt out of having personal information used for secondary purposes by selecting the appropriate opt-out box online or the "unsubscribe" link on our emails to you.
Please note, we do not control communications between you and other third parties. Please refer to such third parties in order to determine their opt-out procedures.

We also may collect information about your shopping and web browsing activity, including products viewed and referring website addresses.
We may, directly or through our contractors, store information on your computer or other device in the form of a "cookie" or similar file for purposes of enhancing your experience on the Site, such as by personalizing the Site, tailoring web content to your interests, recording session information, securely storing sign in information, and tracking click stream data.

HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
INFORMATION WE DISCLOSE
We may share your personal information with third party vendors who provide services or functions on our behalf, including business analytics, customer service, and fraud prevention. We may also authorize third party vendors to collect information on our behalf, including as necessary to operate features of the Site or to facilitate the delivery of online advertising tailored to your interests. Our third party vendors have access to and may collect information only as needed to perform their functions and are not permitted to share or use the information for any other purpose. They are also required to follow substantially comparable security practices that we ourselves adhere to.
We also may share your loyalty card numbers and information related to coupons and offers you receive with third parties for purposes of providing you with such coupons and offers.
We also may share aggregate or anonymous information in our discretion with third parties, including advertisers, investors, manufacturers, retailers, and other business partners. For example, we may tell our advertisers the number of visitors the Site receives or the most popular products. This information does not contain any personal information and is used to develop content, products, and services we hope you will find of interest.
THE RIGHT TO VERIFY THE ACCURACY OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Keeping information accurate and up to date is important to us. Individuals may see and correct their personal information that we collect except for information relating to a claim or a criminal or civil proceeding. You can access and update your contact information and preferences by accessing the Site’s user profile page.
CONFIDENTIALITY AND SECURITY
We restrict access to personal information on our servers to our authorized personnel and contractors. We maintain appropriate physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect the personal information we collect. Despite these measures, however, MissionControl cannot guarantee the security of personal information, including information that is transmitted wirelessly or over public networks.
Upon creating an account, you will be assigned a sign in ID and a password that will allow you to access your personal information. For security purposes, we impose guidelines, such as a minimum password length, for passwords created by you, and we may require you to update and change your password after a certain period of time. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer or other device. Be sure to sign off and clear caches when finished using a shared computer or other device. MissionControl is not responsible for any unauthorized access to your account by an individual who has obtained your sign in ID and/or password through no fault of MissionControl.
Please note that any information you post or submit to a public bulletin board, blog or chat room is available to all persons accessing that location, and your e-mail address may also be posted on these venues. The information you share, including your email address, would then be available to all persons accessing these venues, and such information may be read, collected or used by others for any purpose, including sending you unsolicited messages. MissionControl is not responsible for any information you elect to submit in these venues or the use of such information.
This is a general audience Site and does not offer services or products directed to children. Should a child whom we know to be under 13 send personal information to us, we will use that information only to respond directly to that child that he or she is prohibited from accessing or using the Site.
