Please note the arbitration provision set forth below, requiring you to arbitrate any claims you may have against Milton's on an individual basis.  ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS MEANS THAT YOU WILL NOT HAVE, AND YOU WAIVE, THE RIGHT FOR A JUDGE OR JURY TO DECIDE YOUR CLAIMS, AND THAT YOU MAY NOT PROCEED IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, OR REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY.

LEGAL BASIS FOR PROCESSING PERSONAL INFORMATION UNDER THE GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION (GDPR)

 

If you are a resident of the European Economic Area (EEA), Milton's legal basis for collecting and using the Personal Information described in this Privacy Policy depends on the Personal Information we collect and the specific context in which we collect it.  In addition, we process Personal Information with the principle of data minimization in mind.  This means that we limit ourselves to the minimum amount of Personal Information which is needed to achieve the particular purpose for which we process the Personal Information.  Below are some examples of the purposes for which Personal Information may be processed.

 

Milton's may process your Personal Information because:

  • The processing is necessary to provide the services and features you have requested;

  • The processing is necessary to perform a contract with you;

  • The processing is necessary for the legitimate interests of our business, such as fraud prevention, information security, direct marketing, or to comply with the law;

  • To fulfill a legal obligation;

  • You have provided consent for us to do so.

 

RETENTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

 

We will retain your Personal Information for as long as it is necessary for the purposes set out in this Policy and to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations (for example, if we are required to retain your Personal Information to comply with applicable laws), resolve disputes, and enforce our legal agreements and policies.

 

CROSS-BORDER DATA TRANSFERS

 

Your information, including Personal Information, may be transferred to—and maintained on—computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ from those of your jurisdiction.

 

If you are located outside of the United States and choose to provide information to us, please note that we transfer the data, including Personal Information, to the United States and process it there.  Your affirmative consent to such cross border data transfers allows us to transfer the data to the U.S.  Milton's will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your Personal Information is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

 

COPPA COMPLIANCE

 

We are committed to children's privacy.  We do not knowingly collect or maintain Personal Information on the Site from persons under 13 years of age, and no part of our Site is directed to persons under 13.  If you are under 13, please do not use or access the Site at any time or in any manner.  If Milton's learns that Personal Information of persons under 13 years of age has been collected on the Site without verified parental consent, then Milton's will take appropriate steps to delete the information.

 

SECURITY

 

We take appropriate steps to protect Personal Information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction, whether in transmission or storage.  Please keep in mind, however, that there is no such thing as perfect security, and no Internet transmission is ever completely secure or error-free.  When you provide us with your name and contact information, they are automatically recorded in a Windows server operating environment via an SQL database using an Always Encrypted Database Engine that is owned and managed by Milton's.  On rare occasion, user contact information may be stored via an offline datastore (i.e., paper) and within a locked facility and only accessible by Milton's staff.

 

Every 90 calendar days, this offline datastore is evaluated and all records no longer in active use are shredded via an in-house cross-cut DIN Level 3-4 or better shredder.  Technical infrastructure security is managed, updated, and maintained via a third-party IT Support and Cybersecurity NIST-compliant firm located in San Diego, CA.

ARBITRATION; CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS

 

By using the Site, you agree that any dispute in any manner arising out of or relating in any way to this Privacy Policy, its enforcement or interpretation, or because of an alleged breach, default, or misrepresentation in connection with any of its provisions, shall be submitted to binding arbitration with Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services, Inc. ("JAMS") in the San Diego, California area.  ARBITRATION MEANS THAT YOU WILL NOT HAVE AND YOU WAIVE THE RIGHT FOR A JUDGE OR JURY TO DECIDE YOUR CLAIMS.  Rights to the prehearing exchange of information and other discovery, as well as appeal rights, are more limited than were you to sue in court.

 

This arbitration provision is equally binding on claims brought by us as on claims brought by you or others.  Arbitrations will be conducted under the applicable JAMS rules.  The parties to arbitration will have all the same claims, legal rights, and remedies in arbitration that would be available in court.  A single neutral arbitrator shall be selected in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules, which shall provide you a reasonable opportunity to participate in the arbitrator selection.  It is further agreed that any disputes as to whether the scope of this arbitration provision covers the claim will be submitted to the arbitrator, and not a court, for decision.  The parties to arbitration will have full right to use legal counsel at their own expense.  All costs of arbitration (including arbitrator fees) shall be paid by us, except if you bring the arbitration, you may be charged an initial filing fee that shall not exceed the filing fees that you would incur for bringing an action in court.  You will not be required to pay fees and costs incurred by the opposing parties if you do not prevail in arbitration.  In arbitration, the parties may conduct reasonable discovery and shall reasonably exchange non-privileged information relevant to the dispute.  The arbitrator's award shall be in writing and provide a written statement of the essential findings and conclusions.  The arbitrator will not have the power to commit any error of law or legal reasoning, and the award may be vacated or corrected on appeal to a court of competent jurisdiction for any such error.  As an exception to this arbitration provision, no one subject to the provision will be precluded from seeking remedies for disputes or claims less than $10,000 in the aggregate that can be brought in a court of competent jurisdiction.

 

ANY ARBITRATION SHALL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, OR REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY.  It is expressly understood and agreed that neither you nor we are entitled to arbitrate or bring any dispute covered by this arbitration provision as a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action, and the arbitrator(s) will have no authority to proceed on a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action basis.  This means:

  • You cannot bring a claim as a plaintiff or class member in a class action, consolidated action or representative action.

  • The arbitrator cannot combine more than one person's claim into a single case, and cannot preside over any consolidated, class or representative arbitration proceeding (unless we both agree to change this).

  • The arbitrator's decision or award in one person's case can only impact the person who brought the claim, not other Milton's customers, and cannot be used to decide other disputes with other customers.

 

If any part of the agreement to arbitrate in this section is found unenforceable, the unenforceable term will be severed and the remaining arbitration terms will be enforced (but in no case will there be a class, representative or private attorney general arbitration).  In the event that any of the class action restrictions are ever deemed illegal or unenforceable, the illegally deemed or unenforceable restriction(s) shall be severed from this arbitration provision, and any class action shall be exempted from this arbitration provision and brought in court.  This arbitration provision is subject to the Federal Arbitration Act, and may be enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction.

 

QUESTIONS

 

For information and questions about the use of your Personal Information or this Privacy Policy, you may contact our Vice President of Marketing & Innovation at:  Milton's Baking Company, 5875 Avenida Encinas, Carlsbad, CA, 92008 USA, Phone 858-350-9696.

 

CHANGES TO THIS STATEMENT

 

Milton's may occasionally update this Privacy Policy to reflect feedback from users like you and to reflect changes in our policies.  We encourage you periodically to review this Privacy Policy to be informed of how Milton's is protecting your information.  In general, we only use your Personal Information in the manner described in the Privacy Policy in effect when we receive the Personal Information you provided.  Your continued use of the Milton's Website after any such updates constitutes your agreement to this Privacy Policy and any future revisions.
