Privacy Policy

The Coca-Cola Company, headquartered in the United States, has created this privacy statement (this 'Privacy Statement') in order to demonstrate its firm commitment to privacy. This Privacy Statement discloses The Coca-Cola Company's information gathering, use and dissemination practices for the information collected through this web site (the 'Site1) where this Privacy Statement is posted. We encourage you to read this Privacy Statement before using this Site. Your use of this Site signifies that you agree with all terms of this Privacy Statement, so please do not use this Site if you disagree with any part of this Privacy Statement.

Other sites of The Coca-Cola Company or, from time to time, certain activities on other sites of The Coca-Cola Company might be governed by different privacy practices from those set forth below. We encourage you to check the privacy statement of each site of The Coca-Cola Company that you visit. This Privacy Statement does not govern our collection of information through any web site where this Privacy Statement is not posted; nor does this Privacy Statement govern the collection of information by third parties (other than collection by The Coca-Cola Company's service providers through the Site, as set forth herein).

Note Regarding Use of the Site by Children: We do not solicit from or knowingly gather information on anyone under the age of thirteen (13) and we request that such individuals not provide any Personally Identifiable Information (as defined below) through the Site.

I. The Coca-Cola Company's Collection of Information

We gather three basic types of information through the Site: "Personally Identifiable Information" (or "PII"), "Non-Personally Identifiable Information" (or "Non-PII") and IP Addresses. Personally Identifiable Information is information that identifies you as an individual. Non-Personally Identifiable Information is aggregated information, demographic information, and any other information that does not reveal specific identifying information about you. An IP Address is the Internet Protocol address of the computer that you are using.

A. Personally Identifiable Information

We collect PII from you when you provide it to us while on the Site, such as: your name, address, telephone numbers, email address, account and credit card numbers when you set up an account, enter a sweepstakes, redeem an award, sign up for newsletters, participate in a survey, make a purchase through the Site, participate in a promotion offered through the Site, contact customer service, or otherwise interact with the Site or use certain features on the Site.

The PII you provide to this Site may be combined with information you provide to The Coca-Cola Company on other sites, with demographic and other information that is publicly available, or with other information about you that The Coca-Cola Company may otherwise obtain online or offline.
B. Non-Personally Identifiable Information

When you visit and interact with the Site, The Coca-Cola Company and third parties with whom The Coca-Cola Company has contracted to provide services to The Coca-Cola Company may collect Non-PII (for example, a catalog of the Site pages you visit). Our affiliates may also provide us with Non-PII collected from their web sites. Non-PII is generally collected from cookies, referrers, IP addresses, environmental variables, pixel tags and similar technologies and information you voluntarily provide.

a. Cookies. The Coca-Cola Company and our service providers may use encrypted or non-encrypted cookies in connection with this Site. Cookies are data that a web server transfers to an individual's computer for recordkeeping and other purposes. Cookies are an industry standard used by most web sites, and can facilitate users' ongoing access to and use of a particular web site; cookies do not cause damage to your computer systems or files. If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows you to automatically decline cookies, or to be given the choice of declining or accepting the transfer of a particular cookie, or cookies from a particular web site, to your computer. For example, cookies allow you to easily log into the Site by remembering your email address.

b. Environmental Variables. The Coca-Cola Company and our service providers may also collect various environmental variables, such as the domain from which your computer accessed the Internet, the time you accessed this Site, the type of web browser and operating system or platform used, the computer's MAC address, the computer type (e.g., Windows or Macintosh), the Internet address of the web site you left to visit this Site, the names of the pages you visit while at this site, and the Internet address of the web site you then visit. These environmental variables are collected by most browsers, and can be used to optimize your experience on the Site.

c. Pixel Tags. The Coca-Cola Company and our service providers may also use so-called "pixel tags," "web beacons," "clear GIFs," or similar means (collectively, "Pixel Tags") in connection with some Site pages and HTML-formatted email messages to, among other things, track the actions of Site users and email recipients, compile aggregate statistics about Site usage, response rates and the effectiveness of marketing and advertising campaigns.

d. Information You Voluntarily Provide. We may also collect demographic data, such as your date of birth, gender and zip code, when you voluntarily provide such information to us. Such information constitutes Non-PII because, unless combined with PII, it does not personally identify you or any other user. Additionally, we may aggregate PII in a manner such that the end-product does not personally identify you or any other user of the Site, for example, by using PII to calculate the percentage of our users who have a particular zip code. Such aggregate information is considered Non-PII for purposes of this Privacy Statement.

C. IP Addresses

Your Internet Protocol (IP) address is a number that is automatically assigned to the computer that you are using by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). This number is identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever you visit the Site, along with the time(s) of your visit(s) and the page(s) that you visited. Our affiliates may also provide us with IP address information that may be collected from their web sites.

II. The Coca-Cola Company's Use of Information

A. Personally Identifiable Information

We may use PII about you for the following purposes. If we intend to use your information for a purpose that is incompatible with these purposes or if we intend to disclose it to a type of third party not previously identified in this Privacy Statement, we will notify you and offer you the opportunity to opt out of such uses and/or disclosures.

i. General. PII about you is used by us, our service providers and any fulfillment agencies that we may utilize to respond to your requests and fulfill the purpose for which the PII was provided, (e.g., to send newsletters or questionnaires to you, to provide information on offers or contests or to process and fulfill your payments and transactions) and for administrative purposes (e.g., customer service or to process rewards). We may also use PII about you for internal business purposes, such as analyzing and managing our businesses, for example, to study the effectiveness of advertising campaigns, to improve our website and/or our products, to tailor the Site experience and content based on your past activities on the Site, and to gauge customer satisfaction.

ii. Managing Rewards. We may also use PII about you to manage a rewards program, should we decide to create one, e.g., to keep track of the number of points you have accumulated and/or redeemed, and the items you have redeemed your points for, as well as to fulfill your redemptions.

iii. Communications. We may use PII about you to send you information about The Coca-Cola Company's programs, to send invitations to you to participate in special programs , to re-contact you if we have not heard from you in a while and, occasionally, to send you advertising/promotional material from some of our affiliates, advertising and strategic partners. You may opt-out of receiving certain future marketing information or promotional communications (see Section VIII (Opt-Out/Choice) below). However, regardless of your opt-out preferences, The Coca-Cola Company may still at times need to send program emails for administrative reasons (e.g., to provide you with important information regarding the Site, or changes to our terms, conditions, and policies) because this information may be important to your use of the Site, you may not opt-out of receiving such communications.

iv. Promotions. Further, we may operate sweepstakes, contests and similar promotions (collectively, "Promotions") through the Site. We typically ask you for certain PII when you enter and, if applicable, win a Promotion, and we will use PII about you to process your entrance and any prizes, as applicable. You should carefully review the rules, if any, of each Promotion in which you participate through the Site, as they may contain additional important information about The Coca-Cola Company's use of PII about you. To the extent that the terms and conditions of such promotion rules concerning the treatment of PII about you conflict with this Privacy Statement, the terms and conditions of such promotion rules shall control.

B. Non-Personally Identifiable Information

Because Non-PII does not personally identify you, we may use such information for any purpose. For example, we may use this information for The Coca-Cola Company's internal use such as to enhance web site security, to detect broad demographic trends, to assist The CocaCola Company in providing content tailored to your interests, and to otherwise enhance your experience on this Site. In addition, we reserve the right to share such NonPII, which does not personally identify you, with third parties, for any purpose.

In some instances, we may combine Non-PII with PII (such as combining your name with your zip code). If we do combine any Non-PII with PII, the combined information will be treated by us as PII as long as it is combined.

C. IP Addresses

We and our service providers use IP addresses for purposes such as calculating Site usage levels, helping diagnose problems with the Site's servers, administering the Site and for the other purposes set forth in Section II(A), and we may disclose IP addresses as set forth in Section III below. Collecting IP addresses is standard practice on the Internet and is done automatically by many web sites. Please note that we treat IP Addresses, server log files and related information as Non-PII, except where we are required to do otherwise under applicable law.
