Information Collection and Use
Fresh Express will not collect any personally identifiable information about you – such as your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address – unless you provide it to us voluntarily and approve its use.
If you do not want your personally identifiable information collected, please do not submit it to us. When you do provide us with personally identifiable information, we may use that information to better understand your needs and how we can improve our products and services. We may also use that information to contact you, for example, to contact you by email with one of our newsletters containing additional information about our products or to answer a question or respond to a comment you have submitted. In the case of requests for employment, we will use your information to assess your application, to contact references, and for any other reasonable purposes in connection with your application. However, we will not provide your information to third parties without your consent, except as required by law as explained in the “Information Sharing” section below.
To conduct transactions through our online store, we may collect certain billing and financial information. Such information may include, without limitation, credit card information. We do not share your financial information with any third party without your consent, except to a court or governmental agency if permitted by law, as authorized by a court of competent jurisdiction or to the limited extent described below under “Certain Third Party Transactions”.
In some cases, we may collect information that is not personally identifiable. Examples of this type of information include the type of Internet browser or computer operating system you use, the date and time you visited our site, the pages you accessed, and the name of the web site from which you linked to our site. We use this information to analyze trends and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. This information is not linked to any personally identifiable information.
Chiquita may use “cookies” – pieces of data stored on your computer tied to information about you – on the www.FreshExpress.com Web site. This information will be in the form of a cookie or similar file and will help us enhance your web experience by saving time on the site. With most Internet browsers, you can erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block all cookies or receive a warning before a cookie is stored.

Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our web site.
Certain Third Party Transactions
We may disclose personal information to third parties we engage to provide services that involve data processing on our behalf. Also, if some or all of the assets of Fresh Express are sold to a third party, such third party will be entitled to use the personal information disclosed by users of this web site, but only in accordance with the terms of this privacy statement.
This site has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control.
