Information Collected By Automated Means

We may use cookies, web beacons/pixel tags, log files, and other technologies to collect certain information about visitors to our website, use of our online services, and interactions with our emails and online advertisements. For example, through these means, we may collect your browser type and operating system, viewed webpages, links that are clicked, IP address, sites visited before coming to our website, emails we send that you open, forward, or click through to our website. Collecting this information, and linking it with your personally-identifiable information, helps us to best tailor our website and enhance your online experience by saving your preferences while you are visiting a particular site, and to help identify site features, advertisements, and offers that may be of particular interest to you.

We may obtain information about you from other sources, including commercially available sources, such as data aggregators and public databases.

How We Share Your Information

We do not sell or otherwise disclose personally identifiable information about our website visitors, except as described here. We do not share your personally identifiable information with unaffiliated third parties for their own marketing purposes without your consent. For Louisiana residents, please see “Your Louisiana Privacy Rights” below.

We may share personally identifiable information among H & B Beverages brands and subsidiaries. We may also share the information with service providers we have retained to perform services on our behalf, such as to help run promotions, fulfill orders and provide customer service. These service providers may have access to personally-identifiable information about our website visitors if it is needed to perform their functions for EX5, but they are not authorized by H & B Beverages to use or disclose the information except as necessary to perform services on H & B Beverage’s behalf or to comply with legal requirements. In addition, we may disclose information where we think it’s necessary to investigate or prevent an actual or suspected crime or injury to ourselves or others, if required by law, or in response to a request from law enforcement authorities or other government officials.

We may conduct joint promotions with other companies. We may share with our promotional partners (and their service providers) certain personally-identifiable information as necessary to conduct the promotion. We will not share this information with our promotional partners for any other purpose unless you consent to such sharing.

During the normal course of our business, H & B Beverages may sell or purchase assets. If another entity acquires us or any of our assets, information we have collected about you may be transferred to such entity. In addition, if any bankruptcy or reorganization proceeding is brought by or against us, such information may be considered an asset of ours and may be sold or transferred to third parties. Should a sale or transfer occur, we will use reasonable efforts to try to require that the transferee use personally identifiable information provided through this website in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Notice.

Your Louisiana Privacy Rights

For Louisiana Residents: We may share your personally-identifiable information with affiliated third parties, some of which do not share the H & B Beverages name, for their own direct marketing purposes. Because this category of affiliates is considered to be “unaffiliated parties” under Louisiana Law, you may opt out of us sharing with them. To opt out, please send a letter with your name, postal address, e-mail, with the heading “Louisiana Privacy Rights” to:

H & B Beverages, LLC.
19348 N. 4th Street
Covington, LA 70433
Attention: Consumer Relations

This website may contain links to other websites. We provide these links solely for your convenience and information. Different websites have different privacy practices. You should always check the privacy notice of the specific site you’re visiting to understand the privacy practices associated with that site. We are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of third party websites.

Children’s Privacy

Some portions of our website may be directed to children under 13. In these areas of our website, our conduct is governed by federal law and regulations that address children’s online privacy, as well as by the guidelines of the Children’s Advertising Review Unit (CARU), a part of the Council of Better Business Bureaus. If you are under 13, please be sure to read this notice with your parent or legal guardian.

We do not knowingly collect personally-identifiable information from children under 13 on our website, except as permitted by legal requirements and the CARU guidelines. We sometimes offer promotions on our website, such as contests, sweepstakes and games, which children may enter. In those cases, we do not require a child to disclose more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in the promotion as a condition of participation. If we need more than just your child’s first name (or screen name) and e-mail address for your child to participate in a particular online promotion, we will ask your child for your e-mail address so that we can notify you of your child’s request and obtain your permission. When we ask for your permission, we will tell you what we will do with the information that you or your child provides us. In addition, if a child under 13 signs up with us for an email newsletter or other online activity that requires more than one online contact, we also ask the child for your email address so that we can notify you and give you the opportunity to opt your child out of further communications from us. Unless you have explicitly consented, we do not (i) use your child’s personal information for any purpose other than to complete the promotion or (ii) share the information with third parties except as described above in this Privacy Notice. We do not keep your (or your child’s) email address unless you tell us it is okay.

We permit children under the age of 13 to contact us through the website “Contact Us” link with questions or comments. We request only the child’s first name and e-mail address and use that information solely to respond directly to the child on a one-time basis. We do not use the information to recontact the child and we delete the child’s personal information from our database after responding to the child’s inquiry.

Upon proper identification, a parent may review any personal information we have collected from his or her child if we still have the information in our database. The parent also may request that the child’s information be deleted from our database and may refuse to permit further collection or use of the child’s information. If you are a parent and wish to exercise these rights, please contact us as described below.

How We Protect Your Information

The security of personally-identifiable information is important to us. We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect against unauthorized use, disclosure, alteration or destruction of the personally-identifiable information we collect on this website. Updates To This Privacy Notice We may change or update portions of this Privacy Notice at any time. Please check back from time to time so you are aware of any changes or updates to the notice.
