This Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) only applies to information collection and use practices on the Aurora Organic Dairy (“AOD”) Website (the “Website”). This Privacy Policy is subject to the AOD Terms of Use.

If you visit the Website and/or choose to provide us with personal information (“Personal Information”), we have designed our system to protect your privacy. Our system will be able to ascertain your geographic location from your IP address, but we do not collect e-mail addresses unless (i) we are required to do so by law; (ii) we have reason to believe that you have violated the terms and conditions of the AOD Terms of Use; (iii) you have caused or attempted to cause harm to us or the other users of our Website; and/or (iv) you voluntarily provide us with Personal Information (as described below).


There might be links from the Website or portals on the Website to other websites. This Privacy Policy only applies to the Website and not to websites of any other company or organization linked to or through the Website, which may have different policies. The inclusion of any link does not imply our endorsement of the external site company, its Website or Websites, or the products and services it promotes or sells. When you leave our Website to visit one of these linked sites, the only information transferred to the third party is the fact that you came from our Website.

AOD is not responsible or liable for the independent privacy policies of these third-party Websites. AOD encourages you to review all policies, rules, terms and regulations, including the privacy policies, of each website that you visit.

Gathering Anonymous Information

Our servers may log IP addresses and AOD might collect non-personal and aggregate information (collectively, “Non-Personal Information”) relating to your and other users’ use of the Website, such as page hits, number of visits, web pages viewed and the length of visits to the Website. AOD may use this information to measure the use of our Website, to improve the content of our Website, and to provide our users with the best possible services. AOD will not tie this Non-Personal Information to your Personal Information.

Use and Disclosure of Information

The Personal Information that you provide will be available to AOD, our agents, representatives and service providers and contractors, as appropriate, to be used to respond to your inquiries or questions about AOD and for the purposes indicated or which may reasonably be inferred by your voluntary provision of such Personal Information and otherwise in connection with the conduct of the AOD business and operations. AOD does not, however, rent, sell or furnish Personal Information to unaffiliated third parties to use in advertising or promoting their products or services, without your permission.

AOD may also use your Personal Information, alone or in combination with the information submitted by other users, to improve the Website’s navigation or infrastructure.

Third party contractors or providers of services to AOD that have access to your Personal Information are also expected to protect such Personal Information in a manner consistent with this Privacy Policy and to use such Personal Information only to carry out the activities or services they are performing for you or for AOD.

AOD will not disclose Personal Information and Non-Personal Information with other people or non-affiliated companies except to provide the services that you have requested, when we have your permission, or under the following circumstances:

We respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.

We believe it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of our Terms of Use, or as otherwise required by law.

In addition, in the event that all or substantially all of AOD’s ownership and/or assets are transferred or sold to, or AOD is merged with, another entity, or there is a change of control of AOD, AOD may transfer Personal Information and Non-Personal Information to the successor entity.
