Schwan’s may use Service Providers to provide site metrics and other analytics services, for example:

We and/or such third parties also may use these technologies to collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or other online services (behavioral tracking).

Additionally, our sites may include social media features, such as the Facebook Like button. Our integration of these features may allow third-party social media to collect certain information, such as your IP address and which page(s) you are visiting when using our sites, and to set a cookie to enable that feature to function properly. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing such features.

The Service Providers that we engage are bound by confidentiality obligations and other restrictions with respect to their use and collection of your information.


Schwan’s may use third parties, such as network advertisers, to serve advertisements on third party websites or other media (for example, a third-party social networking website). This enables Schwan’s and these third parties to target advertisements on those third-party websites to you for products offered by us and products and websites offered by third parties in which you might be interested. Third party ad network providers, advertisers, sponsors, and/or traffic measurement websites may use cookies, JavaScript, Web beacons, flash cookies, or local shared objects and other tracking technologies to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content to you.

This Cookie Notice does not apply to those third parties, and we cannot control their activities. You should consult the respective privacy or cookie policies of these third-party ad servers or ad networks for more information on their practices and for instructions on how to opt-out of certain practices. For example, you may go to the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) Consumer Choice Page for information about opting out of interest-based advertising and choices regarding having information used by DAA companies. You may also go to the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) Consumer Opt-Out Pagefor information about opting out of interest-based advertising and choices regarding having information used by third party companies who are NAI members.

Opting out from one or more companies listed on the DAA Consumer Choice Page or the NAI Consumer Opt-Out Page will remove you from those companies’ delivery of interest-based content or ads to you, but it does not mean you will no longer receive any advertising through the Schwan’s Offerings or on other third party websites. Even if you opt-out from one or more companies listed on the DAA Consumer Choice Page or the NAI Consumer Opt-Out Page, you may continue to receive advertisements, for example, based on the particular website that you are viewing (i.e., contextually based ads). Also, if your browsers are configured to reject cookies when you opt-out on the DAA or NAI websites, your opt-out action may not be effective. Additional information is available on the DAA’s website at or the NAI’s website at
