Collecting Information:

Our goal is to create websites that require minimum collection of information from our visitors. We collect information at different parts of our sites:

You must be 13 or older to register for the Blizzard Fan Club. Members of the Fan Club may receive newsletters, e-mail or special offers from IDQ or their local independent Dairy Queen® operator. You may unsubscribe to these features of the Fan Club at any time.

(2) Contests and Surveys: From time to time, the sites may feature voluntary contests or surveys, which may request personal contact information (name, address, telephone number, e-mail address). We will use the information provided in connection with the contest or survey conducted.

(3) Cookies: We do use limited “cookie” technology. Cookies are used to store bits of information on your hard drive to remember pages you have visited in the past. We do not use cookies to collect or store personal information.

Sharing Information:

We do not disclose any personally identifiable information to any third parties, except in the following three circumstances:

(1) We use an outside shipping company to ship orders, and a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services.
