Privacy Policy

Chiquita Brands L.L.C. and its affiliated and related entities (collectively, "Chiquita," “We” or “Us”) respect the privacy of every individual who visits our websites. This privacy statement covers all sites promulgated by Chiquita, as well as its subsidiaries and affiliates, and outlines the information that we may collect and how we will use that information. We reserve the right to change this privacy statement at any time by posting a new privacy statement at this location. We will put a notice of any change on our homepage. Therefore, you are responsible for periodically checking the privacy statement for changes.

Information Collection and Use

We will not collect any personally identifiable information about you – such as your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address – unless you provide it to us voluntarily and approve its use.

If you do not want your personally identifiable information collected, please do not submit it to us. When you do provide us with personally identifiable information, we may use that information to better understand your needs and how we can improve our products and services. We may also use that information to contact you, for example, to answer a question or respond to a comment you have submitted. In the case of requests for employment, we will use your information to assess your application, to contact references, and for any other reasonable purposes in connection with your application. However, we will not provide your information to third parties without your consent, except as required by law as explained in the "Information Sharing" section below.

To conduct transactions through our online store (available on some web sites), we may collect certain billing and financial information.
