Effective Date: September 12, 2023
This statement of our privacy policies (the “Privacy Statement”) sets forth a commitment and description of policies and practices related to the collection and use of your personal data by Ready Pac Produce, Inc. and its successors, parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, and related companies or other companies under a common control that we may have now or in the future operate (“Ready Pac,” “we,” “our,” or “us”). The term “Site” includes the website at www.readypac.com and all sub-components thereof, such as a landing site when you click on a Ready Pac product QR code. By accessing the Site and providing us with personal information, you agree to be bound by this Privacy Statement. If you do not agree with any term in this Privacy Statement, please do not provide us your personal information or use the Site.
Please note: The laws and regulations in different countries, States, Commonwealths and Districts, may impose different (and even conflicting) requirements on Internet activity and data protection/privacy depending upon where the consumer resides. Ready Pac is based in the State of California, and the servers that make the Site available worldwide are located in the United States. All matters relating to the Site are governed by the laws of the State of California, without reference to its conflicts of law rules that could result in the application of the laws of another jurisdiction.
Your U.S. State Privacy Rights
Depending on the jurisdiction in which you live, you may have the following consumer rights, subject to exceptions allowed by law, including under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”), the California Privacy Rights Act of 2020 (“CPRA”), the Colorado Privacy Act, the Connecticut Personal Data Privacy and Online Monitoring Act, the Iowa Consumer Data Protection Act, the Utah Consumer Privacy Act, and the Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act:
Transparency: Businesses that collect personal information subject to the above listed laws are required to provide you with notice regarding the categories of personal information to be collected, the purposes for which the categories of personal information are collected or used, whether that information is sold or shared, and the length of time we intend to retain each category of personal information, or if that is not possible, the criteria used to determine that period, among other information.

Correct inaccurate or obsolete personal information that Ready Pac may maintain.
Delete personal information under certain circumstances.
Not to be discriminated against on the basis of your exercising any of your rights afforded by state law.
Limit the use, disclosure, or processing of sensitive personal information. Ready Pac does not collect or use sensitive personal information in any manner that requires the right to limit because

Opt out of the sale, certain processing, or sharing of personal information. Ready Pac does not sell or share your personal information, except as set forth below in “Information Sharing and Disclosure.”
Because Ready Pac is based in the State of California, we also highlight below specific data collection rights for California residents. If you reside in any other State, Commonwealth or District within the United State of America, that provides additional data collection rights, you can assert your rights by contacting us at email@example.com. Colorado, Connecticut, and Virginia residents may appeal the denial of a request made by emailing us at the above email address, and we will respond within the legally required time period, including a written explanation of the results of your appeal.

We use Google Analytics to track IP addresses, which include geographical location. This data is collected by Google Analytics and we can access Google Analytics reports, which provides aggregated data. But we do not receive or collect individualized personal data (including IP addresses) from Google Analytics reporting. See https://analytics.google.com/analytics/web/provision/#/provision for information about Google Analytics.
“Do Not Track” Signals We do not respond to, or process, “Do Not Track” (DNT) or other signals or mechanisms in Internet browsers that provide consumers the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of personally identifiable information about an individual consumer’s online activities over time and across third party websites or online services. DNT is a feature offered by some browsers which, when enabled, sends a signal to websites to request that your browsing is not tracked, such as by third party ad networks, social networks and analytic companies. We do not currently take actions to respond to DNT signals because a uniform technological standard has not yet been developed. We continue to review new technologies and may adopt a DNT standard once one is created. For information about DNT, please visit: www.allaboutdnt.org.
Third Party Links
The Site may contain hyperlinks to websites of third parties. This Privacy Statement does not apply to such third party content or websites. If individuals decide to follow such links, they must be aware that Ready Pac does not take any responsibility for the third party content or compliance of the third party website with data privacy laws. Individuals are encouraged to make themselves aware of applicable privacy policies before they submit personal information to third party websites.
Privacy of Children Under 13
Ready Pac does not knowingly collect, use, sell or share personal information from children actually known to be under the age of 13. We will not knowingly contact children under age 13 without a parent’s permission. If you are a parent or guardian of a child under the age of 13 and believe he or she has disclosed personal information to us please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. A verified parent or guardian of a child under the age of 13 may review and request deletion of such child’s personally identifiable information. If Ready Pac is made aware that it has collected personal information from a minor in a manner that is inconsistent with applicable laws, Ready Pac will delete this information as soon as possible.
We do not sell or share the personal information of any individuals (except as set forth above in “Information Sharing and Disclosure”) and, therefore, necessarily do not sell or share the information of children of any age.
Notice of Financial Incentive
From time to time, we may offer financial incentives to promote our products and services. These financial incentives may include discounts, coupons, and special offers when you sign up for our email list, or participate in a marketing promotion.
Sometimes, we may ask you to provide personal information in connection with these promotions. For example, when voluntarily answering a survey (such as when you invoke a QR code on a Ready Pac product), you may have to provide your name, email address, gender and age group in order to obtain a Ready Pac coupon.
Participation in any financial incentive program is optional and you may withdraw from the program at any time by emailing email@example.com. To stop receiving Ready Pac coupons or discounts in your email, you may unsubscribe from our emails by clicking the “unsubscribe” button at the bottom of any such email.
The value of any financial incentive we offer is reasonably related to the value of any personal information you provide to us. We estimate the value of your personal information by considering, without limitation, the expenses we incur from collecting your personal information and/or providing the financial incentive to you, the revenue generated by your use of the financial incentive, and any improvements we can make to our products and services based on aggregating information obtained through the financial incentive program.
Please note that we may provide additional terms that apply to a particular financial incentive. If applicable, those terms will be presented to you at sign up.
