Cookies may be used to enable us to track and target your interests for the purpose of enhancing your experience on our Websites. Some cookies are deleted once you leave our Website (“Session cookies”) while other cookies remain after your leave our Website (“Persistent cookies”) so that you are recognized when you return to the Website. We may use persistent cookies to enable us to provide services to you, including order history, address book, etc. If you would like to deactivate our ability to analyze your browsing activity, please email info@fruitguys.com, or write us at the address provided above.

We may use third-party service providers to serve ads on our behalf across the Internet and sometimes on this Website. These companies may collect information about your online activities over time and across different websites when you use our site and use such information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services.

The information may be used to conduct the promotion and for other business purposes which may include marketing and may be shared with our affiliates, vendors, or third parties in accordance with this privacy policy and the applicable rules.

Child Privacy
Our websites are not designed to appeal to minors, and you are required to be 18 years of age in order to use this website or provide information to us. Therefore we do not knowingly attempt to solicit or receive any information from children under 18.

Security
Shopping on the The FruitGuys® website is easy and we strive to ensure that your order and credit card information are safe and secure. As a result, The FruitGuys® has implemented certain physical, administrative, and technical security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of the information you provide.

As with any transmission over the Internet, however, there is always some element of risk involved in sending personal information and no data transmission can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. In order to try to minimize this risk, we encrypt your personal information, including your name, credit card number, and address, using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol so that it cannot be read as it is transmitted over the Internet.

SSL is considered the industry standard and is among the leading software available to encrypt online transactions. Our servers' use of SSL works with the main browser applications available on the market. This means that you may not be able to use the SSL if you have an older version of an Internet browser that does not support secure transactions, or if your computer is located on a local area network (LAN) that uses a firewall that prohibits secure transactions.

You should ensure that there is no unauthorized access to your account information by limiting access to your computer (or other device) and browser by signing off after you have finished accessing your account. We welcome your questions, comments, and concerns about privacy. Please send us any and all feedback pertaining to privacy, or any other issue to info@fruitguys.com or write to us at:

The FruitGuys

South San Francisco, CA 94080

Because data transmission over the Internet is never 100% secure we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us or from our websites and therefore you use our websites at your own risk.

You play a significant role in protecting your information. After you register on our website you are responsible for protecting the security of your user name and password. You are responsible for any transaction made using your user name and password.

If you need to communicate with us regarding your credit card or other payment information please contact us by mail at the address above.

We are not responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of any non-public information that you provide us or post on the website. If there is information that you wish to protect from disclosure to others, please do not provide it to us.
