Some of these service providers or affiliates may be located in other jurisdictions, and your personal information may be collected, used, disclosed, stored and processed in such jurisdictions for the purposes and uses described in this Privacy Statement. Reasonable contractual or other measures we may take to protect your personal information while processed or handled by these service providers are subject to legal requirements in the applicable jurisdiction. For example, we may be required due to lawful requirements to disclose personal information to government authorities in those countries.
Legal, Regulatory, etc.
Cox’s Wholesale Seafood LLC may disclose your personal information as necessary to meet legal, regulatory, industry self-regulatory, insurance, audit and security requirements, and as otherwise with your consent or as permitted or required by.
Consent to the collection, use and disclosure of personal information may be given in various ways. Consent can be express (for example, orally, electronically or on a form you may submit describing the intended uses and disclosures of personal information) or implied (for example, when you provide personal information necessary for a service you have requested or the purpose is obvious). You may be asked to provide your specific consent in some special and specific circumstances where notice has been provided to you about our intentions with respect to your personal information and you have not withdrawn your consent for an identified purpose, such as by using an “opt-out” option provided, if any. Consent may be given by your authorized representative (such as a legal guardian or a person having a power of attorney). Generally, by providing us with personal information, you are deemed to consent to our collection, use and disclosure of such personal information for the purposes and uses identified or described in this Privacy Statement, if applicable, or otherwise at the time of collection. For residents of the EU, subject to the GDPR, consent will be express if personal information is collected for purposes and uses other than as set out in this Privacy Statement.

Note that if you withdraw your consent to certain uses of your personal information, we may no longer be able to provide certain information or services.

Email Marketing and Newsletters
We may provide you with an opportunity to “opt in” to receive additional email communication from us. If we offer an “opt-in” mechanism for such communication pursuant to which you expressly choose to receive it, we also offer you an “opt-out” mechanism to provide you the opportunity to indicate that you do not want us to send you such further communications.
This may include on the Website, subscribing to our newsletter or email marketing, which may be used for advertising purposes. All email marketing communication sent may contain tracking pixels. The pixel is embedded in emails and allows an analysis of the success of online marketing campaigns. Because of these tracking pixels, Cox’s Wholesale Seafood LLC may see if and when you open an email and which links within the email you click. Also, this allows Cox’s Wholesale Seafood LLC to adapt the content of future emails and newsletters to the interests of the user. This behavior will not be passed on to third parties.
About children and teenagers
We do not intend to collect personal information from individuals under the age of 13 without parental consent and take active steps to comply with applicable laws, including the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). We may, from time to time, offer a contest where children under the age of 13 can enter in which case the personal information is used for purposes of administering the contest and determining a winner. In these cases, we instruct the participant to provide the email address of their parent or guardian. When a participant under the age of 18 is selected as a prize-winner in a contest or sweepstakes, an e-mail is sent to the parent or guardian. This e-mail contains a form that requests the participant’s real name and address and a parental permission form. For the participant to receive the prize, the parent or guardian must complete and submit the permission form. We do not sell personal information.
If a child under 13 has provided us with personal information without parental consent, we ask that a parent or guardian of the child contact us to request that this personal information be deleted from our records. We will use reasonable efforts to delete the child’s personal information from our existing files. We will also use reasonable efforts to delete all contact and other personal information obtained from a teenager (under the age of 18) if a parent or guardian notifies us that they wish to withdraw consent for the collection of a teenager’s personal information.
We encourage parents to talk to their children about their use of the Internet and the personal information they disclose to websites or otherwise.
We take reasonable steps to protect your personal information using physical, electronic or procedural security measures appropriate to the sensitivity of the personal information in our custody or control, which may include safeguards to protect against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification. Authorized employees, agents and mandataries of Cox’s Wholesale Seafood LLC who require access to your personal information in order to fulfil their job requirements will have access to your personal information.
