- If you use our “Send to a Friend feature, we will use the personal information that you submit about yourself and your friend to forward the requested recipe to you and your friend. We will not use or retain your friend’s information for any other purpose. We will not otherwise use or retain your information unless you have indicated by checking off a box on the “Send to a Friend” form that you wish to be added to our e-mail list, in which case we will add you to our mailing list.

If you log into the clearly identified registration area of this website, we use session based cookies, and your activities on the website are tracked through logs of database transactions and server interactions.

We may collect aggregate information in connection with surveys or other online activities that allow you to give us your feedback, but not in a way that specifically identifies you. We may track internet protocol addresses and/or public server information from website visitors, on an aggregated, anonymous basis in order to assist us with our market research.
In some other instances, we may use service providers to facilitate some aspects of our website. These service providers may be supplied anonymous information that we collect from you on this website, but only for purposes of analyzing website performance and implementing the website features. We will not provide personally identifiable information to such third party service providers.
We use industry standard measures efforts to ensure the security of information submitted by you. We exercise great care in providing secure transmission of information from your PC to our computers. Unfortunately, no electronic communication over the internet can be completely guaranteed. While we strive to take great care to protect your information, e.d. Smith cannot warrant the security of any information that you submit to us, and you do so at your own risk. When you send us an e-mail seeking information from us we store your e-mail address in an area to which the general public does not have access.
