In most cases, and subject to legal and contractual restrictions, an individual is free to refuse or withdraw his or her consent at any time upon reasonable, advance notice. It should be noted that in some circumstances, certain Dripp® products and services can only be offered if a person provides personal information to Dripp®. If you choose not provide us with any required personal information, we may not be able to offer the products or services requested. We will inform you of the consequences of the withdrawal of consent.

Also, if you participate in any blog or other online forum on our Site, any personal information that you post on the website may be shared with other participants in the forum.

If such an event were to occur, Dripp® would strive to ensure that the recipient treat your personal information as described in this policy.

HOW CAN I CHANGE WHAT PROMOTIONAL COMMUNICATIONS I RECEIVE?

We may use your email address and other contact information provided to us through the Site or any Dripp® Loyalty/Gift Card program to send you promotional materials from us and, if you’ve opted in, from third parties. If you do not want to receive such promotional information, you can change your communication preferences and remove yourself from our email list at any time. If you have a Dripp.com account please log in and unsubscribe.

Please also note that even if you opt out of receiving promotional emails from us, we may still use your information to communicate with you for other purposes, such as orders, purchases, your Dripp® Loyalty/Gift Card program account, customer service responses and employment application related communications.

HOW DO I REMOVE OR MODIFY MY PERSONAL INFORMATION?
