PRIVACY POLICY AND CHILDREN'S PRIVACY POLICY

Hill's takes care to respect the privacy of its on-line visitors. Our privacy policy is outlined below. As the technology of the Internet changes, this policy may also change. Any change will be promptly reported in these pages.

A SPECIAL NOTE TO PARENTS AND CAREGIVERS

Hill's cares about the privacy of children. We recognise that children's use of e-mail and the Internet raises special concerns for privacy and security of information.

It is Hill's intention to adhere to the Children's Advertising Review Unit ("CARU") Guidelines for Advertising on the Internet and on-line services, including its guidelines on collecting personal information from minors. Hill's reminds and encourages all parents to check and monitor their children's on-line activities. Help us protect the privacy of your children by ensuring that they never send-e-mail or submit personal information on this site or any other without your permission.

WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT? WHAT DO WE DO WITH IT?

Information that can identify an on-line visitor is collected only when voluntarily offered. We collect identifiable information only to respond to our visitors' questions about our Company and its products and services, to mail out Company literature, e.g., brochures, or to contact the winners of contests or promotions. We don't use your e-mail address or other personal information for any purpose other than responding to your request or message. We don't use it internally, and we don't share it with anyone outside the Hill's group of companies, other than as specifically set forth herein.

When you visit our site, we automatically log your IP address (the unique address which identifies your computer on the internet) which is automatically recognised by our web server. We use IP addresses to help us administer the site and to collect broad demographic information for aggregate use.

Our site sometimes includes information about sweepstakes or other promotions that Hill's is offering or is offering jointly with another Internet enterprise, and we may allow you to enter electronically in some cases. If that occurs, Hill's and/or our authorized representatives will use the information you provide for the purpose of conducting the promotion (for example, to contact you if you have won) and with your consent, to offer you products and services of Hill's and our joint sweepstakes sponsors. In addition, we may also collect demographic and other data for market research, advertising and promotional purposes.

As part of the services offered to you through our site, the information you provide to us may be transferred to countries outside of the European Economic Area. By way of example, this may happen if any of our servers are from time to time located in a country outside of the EEA or one of our service providers is located in a country outside of the EEA. We also share information between our group companies, which are located in countries worldwide, including Hill's Pet Nutrition Inc. of the United States. These countries may not have similar data protection laws to the EEA.

COOKIES

Like many other companies, Hill's uses "cookie" technology, where our servers deposit special codes on a visitor's computer. This information helps us determine the total number of visitors to our site on an ongoing basis and identify the type of Internet browsers (e.g., Netscape, Internet Explorer) and operating systems (e.g., Windows, MacIntosh, etc.) used by our visitors. This information is used only to improve our web site and to enhance your on-line visit. Under no circumstances does Hill's use this information to identify visitors or cross-reference the information with any type of personal information that is voluntarily offered at our site.
