This website is owned and operated by Kraft Foods Europe Services GmbH – UK Branch, sponsor of the community programme, health4schools futures (previously known as health4schools. We’ll refer to the programme as ‘health4schools futures’ from now on) Our policy is based upon a commitment to protect users’ privacy and to be clear about how information is collected and used. We may update this Policy from time to time, so please check in regularly.
Types of Information We Collect
At our site, we collect both personally identifiable information and aggregate information.
Personally-identifiable information relates to an individual - e.g., name, address, telephone number, picture, email address etc. We only collect personally-identifiable information from individuals who provide it to us voluntarily and knowingly, such as by registering in our members’ section of the site, or by providing name and address information and requesting follow-up contacts from us.
Aggregate information relates to such things as how many consumers visit the site, which pages they access, what information they download, the type of web browser and operating system you use, the name of your Internet Service Provider (e.g., AOL), and so on. This information is collected automatically and does not enable us to identify you as an individual. By collecting this information, we learn how to best tailor our website to our visitors.
How Information is Collected
As we noted above, personally identifiable information is collected from you directly and with your knowledge. Thus, when you register on the site, we collect the information you provide. When you enter a promotion, we collect the information needed for you to participate and for us to fulfil our obligations to you. When you email us, we collect the email address you supply, so that we can respond.
We also collect aggregate, non-personal information on an ongoing basis when you view our website. The collection of this non-personal information is done either through "cookie" technology or with "web beacons" (also called 'single-pixel gifs'), as explained below.
Like many websites, we may use "cookie" technology on and off of our website. Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers to an individual's hard drive for purpose of keeping records. They enhance your online experience by saving your preferences while you are visiting a particular site. The data is only used in the aggregate and the cookies do not contain any personally-identifiable information and cannot profile your system or collect information from your hard drive.
When you view our website we may place a "cookie" on your computer. Temporary cookies are used for purposes such as counting the number of visits to our sites. These temporary cookies are eliminated when you exit your browser. A permanent cookie may also be stored on your computer by your browser. When you log in, this type of cookie tells us whether you've visited us before or if you are a new visitor. The cookie doesn't obtain any personal information about you or provide us with any way to contact you, and the cookie doesn't extract any information from your computer. We do use the cookie to help us identify site features and information in which you have the greatest interest, so that we can provide more of what you may want.
The "help" portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Remember, though, that cookies allow you to take full advantage of all of the newest website features.
More information about cookies may be found at www.allaboutcookies.org.
How We Use Your Personal Information
If you specifically agreed to follow-up contacts by us or are registered as a programme member, we may contact you from time to time.
We may also use your personal information to deliver content that is customised to your interests as we best understand them from the information you've provided to us and your activities on the site. We do not collect personal information automatically, but we may combine non-personal information collected automatically (through cookies) with your previously submitted personal information.
Data Sharing and Transfer
We do not sell, transfer, or disclose the personally identifiable information we gather at our website to third parties without your prior consent. There are some limited exceptions to this rule: We will disclose information in cases where we are permitted or required to do so by law, for example where it is necessary to investigate or prevent a crime; and may disclose information to third parties who provide support services to us on the conditions specified in this policy.

Choice and Control
You are ultimately in control of the personally identifiable information you provide to us on our site. For example, you can always change your preference for follow-up contacts just by contacting the Online Team at the address listed below or by changing the information in Your Profile section of the site. Or, if you prefer, you can cancel your registration altogether and we will take prompt steps to remove your personally-identifiable information from our database. Contact the Online team at the address listed below if you wish to take this action.
Important Note to Children
Before providing your name, address, e-mail address, or any other personal information to anyone on the Internet, be sure to ask your parents if it's OK.
We do not collect personally identifiable information from children for the purpose of building a database.
