Other Information We Collect

Cookies are used on many Pabst Brewing Company sites. A “cookie” is a small file that we save on your computer’s hard drive that contains non-personal information. Our cookies help to give you faster access to pages you have already visited, allow you to personalize your pages, and help you to participate in activities or events on the site. They also assist us in customizing our offerings to you. If you leave the site and then return, cookies will tell us what things you have already collected so that you do not have to start all over again. Cookies store multi-page data entry until data is submitted to a database (i.e., in connection with an extensive poll or survey), and prevent further participation in a poll or survey by a particular browser. At sites that offer shopping, cookies keep track of items in your shopping cart. Cookies do not contain any personal information about a specific user, and we do not use cookies or other non-consensual methods to take personally identifiable or online contact information about you off of your computer. We do not use cookies for direct marketing or promotional purposes, and cookies are not used at this site to collect information specifically about you for sharing with third parties. We may also use other technology to provide us with other important anonymous information, such as when an e-mail has been opened.

Information You Share With Us

When you interact with the site, you may set up your personal profile, form relationships, send messages, perform searches and queries, add pictures, add video, and transmit information through various channels. We collect this information so that we can provide you the service and offer personalized features. In most cases, we retain it so that, for instance, you can return to view prior information you have sent or easily see what your friends are doing. When you update information, we usually keep a backup copy of the prior version for a reasonable period of time to enable reversion to the prior version of that information. You post User Content (as defined in the Pabst Terms and Conditions) on the Site at your own risk. Please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We cannot control the actions of other Users with whom you may choose to share your pages and information. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that User Content you post on the Site will not be viewed by unauthorized persons. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Site.

We will automatically send your friend a one-time email or instant message inviting him or her to visit the site. Pabst stores this information to send this one-time invitation, to register a friend connection if your invitation is accepted, and to track the success of our referral program. Your friend may contact us at products@pabst.com to request that we remove this information from our database.

Sharing of Personal Information

We want to be very clear: We do not obtain personal information about you at this site other than that which you choose to provide, and we will not sell, rent, trade or otherwise disclose the personal information you provide us to anyone outside of the Pabst Brewing Company or their advertising and promotional agencies and consultants for their commercial marketing purposes, except in those specific instances where you expressly give us permission to do so. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we reserve the right to collect, use, and disclose any information, including but not limited to, personally identifiable information, we may deem necessary, in our sole discretion, to comply with any law, regulation, legal request, or government request. Without assuming any obligation to do so, we also reserve the right to collect and share any information we deem necessary to investigate or take action in connection with suspected fraud, illegal activities, possible harm to persons or property, or as otherwise required or permitted by law.

From time to time, certain pages on our website permit visitors to send e-mails containing content/copy prepared by or on behalf of PBC to friends, acquaintances or other third parties (“Third Parties”) via an automatic technical process, simply by inserting the e-mail addresses of the Third Parties where indicated (“Tell-A-Friend pages”). PBC does not collect or retain Third Party e-mail addresses inserted on Tell-A-Friend Pages. However, if your e-mail address is inserted as a Third Party e-mail address by a website visitor using a Tell-A-Friend Page, you may receive an e-mail at the request and direction of the visitor via the automatic technical process, even though you may have previously indicated that you do not want to receive e-mail from us. Please note that such e-mails are sent by and at the direction of the website visitor, not PBC, and your receipt of such e-mails is not a violation of this Privacy Policy.
