Why do we collect your data?
By collecting your data, it allows us to understand what your needs and wants are, provide personalised content and match the most relevant adverts and services for you. It also allows us to provide targeted offers and services you may be interested to hear about.
What information do we collect?
You don't need to provide any personal information to access our site. However, McCormick provides you with the opportunity to register for occasional email updates on Schwartz products, recipes and special offers that may be of interest to you.
All personal information is collected voluntarily
We will never share personally-identifiable information about you without your prior consent. Like many companies, however, we may share aggregate information about people who use our site (for example, number of males & females) to business partners and other third parties. If we collect personal information from you for a promotion (for example, your address, email address, phone number), we will use it for the purpose of conducting the promotion. We won't share it with anyone outside McCormick.
The Schwartz website employs appropriate security measures which are designed to prevent the loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction of any personally - identifiable information.
Note to Parents
We don't knowingly collect personal information from children under 18. Parents may always ask to review any personal information we have collected from their children. You may have information related to your child deleted from the database and refuse to permit further collection or use of children's information.
Cookies and IP Addresses
There are several types of Cookies:
1. Essential Cookies
2. Analytical Performance Cookies
We use these types of cookies to monitor our websites performance and how our users may use it. These cookies provide us with information that helps us provide better products to their users and also to identify areas that need maintenance. For example, we use performance cookies on our websites to identify, for example, the Top 10 most viewed recipes on our website.
3. Functional Cookies
Functional cookies are used to remember your preferences on our websites. For example these allow us to show you your most recently viewed recipes.
4. Behavioural Advertising Cookies/Third Party Cookies
Online behavioural advertising is a way of providing advertisements on the websites you visit to make them more relevant to your interests. It can also track which sites you have recently visited to tailor advertising to your interests. This is done by grouping together shared interests based upon previous web browsing activity.
Behavioural advertising is based upon your web browsing activity over a period of time - so it's different to advertising you may see when you're looking for something online using a search engine (eg Google) or on the website you may be visiting at a particular time.
You are not obliged to accept cookies and may modify your browser so that it will not accept cookies. The browser you use to surf the web not only allows you to see the cookies that you have got but also allows you to control their use.
You can control them by allowing them, deleting them individually or deleting all of them. You can also set your browser to not accept cookies altogether. If this option is selected, you should be aware that many websites will not function properly or at all. It may be possible to set your browser to not accept cookies and ask for your consent before each cookie is set on your device. This gives you control over what is set on your device, however has the drawback of slowing down your browsing experience.
There are different levels of control too. You are able to prevent just third party cookies being deployed, effectively opting out of behavioural advertising, and some even allow you to block specific companies you do not wish to deploy a cookie, instead of selecting all companies.
