This policy (the “Privacy Policy”) describes the types of information TreeHouse may collect from you or that you may provide when you visit our U.S. online interfaces owned and controlled by us, including www.TreeHouseFoods.com (‘the “Website”). This Privacy Policy applies to information we collect on our Website, or in email, text, and other electronic messages between you and our Website. Except as otherwise provided in this Privacy Policy, it does not apply to information collected by us offline or through any other means, including any website not operated by TreeHouse, and it does not apply to information collected by any third party, including any application or content that may link to or be accessible from the Website. The privacy policy applicable to job applicants on our Careers website is available by following the Careers link https://treehouse.wd1.myworkdayjobs.com/TreeHouseCareers.


TreeHouse collects personally identifiable information from the visitors to the Website only on a voluntary basis. Personal information includes name, postal address, e-mail address, and telephone number. This information is collected if you leave us any feedback, comments, or request information from us.

In some cases, we may collect information about you that is not personally identifiable. For example, we may automatically collect information about your internet connection, IP Address, operating system, and browser type. The information we automatically collect is used solely for internal review and to update and improve the Website and not shared with other organizations for commercial purposes. The technology we use for this automatic data collection includes through the use of "cookie" technology. “Cookies” are small data files that certain websites write to your hard drive when you visit them. They may contain information, such as a user ID, that the website can use to track users' progress through the website, but any personal information contained within any "cookie" can only be supplied voluntarily by you. The “cookie” enables us to track the total number of visitors to the Website, the popularity of various areas of the Website, and the length of the visits in an aggregate form (as one of a group, your individual personal information is not singled out). No personal information is extracted in this process. We do not contact you nor do we provide this information to third parties. You may reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some Website features or services may not function properly without cookies.

TreeHouse also uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”) to collect certain information relating to your use of the Website. Google Analytics uses cookies to help TreeHouse analyze how users use the Website. You can find out more about how Google uses data when you visit our Website by visiting “How Google uses data when you use our partners' sites or apps”, (located at www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/).


The information TreeHouse collects is used to internally improve the content of our Website, notify our visitors of updates, respond to visitor inquiries, process requests for information, notify you of products, special offers and other information about TreeHouse and our affiliates and partners that may be of interest to you, for statistical purposes for improving the Website or our products and services, to maintain the Website, and for security purposes. We may also use the information we collect from and about you as otherwise described to you at the point of data collection.

Except as otherwise stated in this Privacy Policy, we do not sell, trade or rent your personally identifiable information collected on the Website to others. TreeHouse may disclose personally identifiable information as follows: (a) to our subsidiaries and affiliates; (b) to our third party service providers, vendors, and consultants providing services on our behalf to the extent necessary in order to provide services on our behalf, for example, parties that support our Website; (c) enhance your experience on our Website; (d) if we believe that there has been a violation of our Terms and Conditions, any of our intellectual property or other rights of any third party; (e) in order to respond to a subpoena, court order or other such request; (f) in response to a law enforcement agency's request or as otherwise required by law; and (g) as otherwise described to you at the point of collection.

If the ownership of all or substantially all of our business changes or we otherwise transfer assets relating to our business or the Website to a third party, such as by merger, acquisition, bankruptcy proceeding or otherwise, we may transfer or sell your personal information to the new owner. In such a case, unless permitted otherwise by applicable law, your information would remain subject to the promises made in this Privacy Policy unless you agree differently.
