INTRODUCTION

This Quaker Oats QuakerArabia.com website (the “Site”) is operated on behalf of PepsiCo, Inc. and its affiliated and related entities (“Pepsi”).  Pepsi has developed certain privacy practices that relate to information collected or used in connection with the Site as described below (this “Privacy Policy”).  This Privacy Policy discloses our information gathering, use and dissemination practices in relation to the Site and any Quaker applications or web pages hyperlinked to this Privacy Policy (the “Quaker Sites”). This Privacy Policy does not apply to information collected by Pepsi in other forums, including over the phone, offline, through emails that you voluntarily send to us, or to information collected on any Pepsi or affiliate website with a different posted privacy policy. Pepsi strives to fully comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations. By using or accessing the Quaker Sites, you provide your agreement to this Privacy Policy. 

Under 13's Privacy Statement

Pepsi has no intention of collecting any personally identifiable information from individuals under thirteen (13) years of age on any Quaker Site. Where appropriate, Pepsi will specifically instruct children not to submit such information on the Quaker Sites. If a child has provided us with personally identifiable information, a parent or guardian of that child may contact us at quaker.arabia@pepsico.com if they would like this information deleted from our records. We will then use reasonable efforts to delete the child's information from our databases.

Privacy Statement

Q. What privacy do I have when I visit the Quaker Sites?

Above all, the Quaker Sites are committed to providing great entertainment within a trusted environment. The Quaker Sites are also committed to protecting the privacy of anyone who uses a Quaker Site and to complying with any applicable data protection legislation.

All reasonable efforts will be used by Pepsi to treat any personal information provided by you as confidential.

If you link to other websites by using the hypertext connections or links contained on the Quaker Sites, or you visit any other website apart from the Quaker Sites, then this Privacy Policy no longer applies.

Pepsi reserves the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time and may notify you of such amendments through any Quaker Site.

There are cases where the Quaker Sites may ask you for personal information such as your name, email address and birth date. For example, the Quaker Sites may request personal information when you enter a campaign via any Quaker Site or any other social media platform.

 Q. What do the Quaker Sites do with the information they collect about me?

The Quaker Sites collect information from you in order to assist in providing you with a high quality service, which will be appealing and entertaining. In particular, information supplied by you may be used by Pepsi, its affiliates or its service providers to compile a profile of your preferences. We may use and share with third parties generic information about the Quaker Sites and its users. This data is used to customize the Quaker Sites’ content to deliver a better experience for our users. 

Pepsi will also follow your use of any Quaker Site.  Pepsi might, from time to time and in its sole and absolute discretion, award benefits to users of the Quaker Sites.

Q. Is the information I give to any Quaker Site secure?

The importance of security for all personally identifiable information associated with users of any Quaker Site is of utmost concern to us. We exercise great care in providing secure transmission of your information from your computer to our servers. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Once we receive your transmission, we use all reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our (or our service providers’) systems.

Q. What are cookies?

Cookies are pieces of information that a Website transfers to an individual’s hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Cookies make Web-surfing easier for you by saving your preferences while you are at any of our Quaker Sites. The use of cookies is an industry standard; you will find them on most major websites. By showing how and when you use the Quaker Sites, cookies help us see which areas you like and which you don’t. Many improvements and updates to the Quaker Sites are based on data generated by cookies. We use the information from cookies to provide services better tailored to our users’ needs.

Q: What's an IP address? Do I have one?

An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you’re surfing the Web. Web servers automatically identify your computer by its IP address.

The Quaker Sites collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to report information to our advertisers, and to audit the use of the Quaker Sites. When users request pages from the Quaker Sites, our servers log such users’ IP addresses. We can and will use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our Rules or terms of service or to protect our service, the Quaker Sites, customers, or others.

Some services within the Quaker Sites, such as certain message boards, may display the message poster’s name and message. Please review each and every service prior to use and only use those that disclose information you are comfortable with sharing.

Q: Are the Quaker Sites linked to any other sites?

Users should be aware that when they are on a Quaker Site, they could be directed to other sites that are beyond Pepsi’s control. There may be links to other sites from pages on the Quaker Sites that take you outside our service. This includes links from advertisers, sponsors, and the Quaker Sites partners. These other sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data, or solicit personal information and may have their own privacy policies that will apply once users leave any Quaker Site.

Whenever you give out personal information online (for example, via message boards or chat) that information can be collected and used by people you don’t know. While the Quaker Sites strive to protect their users’ personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online and you do so at your own risk.

The Privacy Policy does not extend to anything that is beyond Pepsi’s control, and is not to be applied in any manner contrary to applicable law or governmental regulation.

Q: What am I agreeing to by using the Quaker Sites?

By using the Quaker Sites, you consent to the above. If you do not agree to this Privacy Policy, please do not use of any Quaker Site.

We reserve the right, at our discretion, to change, modify, add or remove portions from this Privacy Policy at any time.  Your continued use of the Quaker Sites following the posting of changes to the Privacy Policy will mean you accept those changes.

Q: How do I find out what personal information the Quaker Sites have about me? If I think that any of this information is incorrect, how can I have it corrected?

If you wish to find out what personal information that we have about you, or if you wish to contact us for any other reason, you may do so by sending an e-mail message to us at: quaker.arabia@pepsico.com
