There is an optional section of our web site where input forms require your name, phone number, company, and e-mail address.

If you opt-in to receiving email communications from us, then we may send information to you on our products or services.

Web Beacons

In order to determine a user's ability to receive HTML email in addition to whether or not an email has been opened, Spicin Foods includes a “web beacon” in a majority of the HTML email messages we send. A web beacon (actually a small .gif image) is activated when an HTML email is opened via a request for the image on our servers. This capability helps Spicin Foods send email in a format users can read and enables Spicin Foods, and our clients that use the functionality, to track the aggregate number of emails opened. The web beacon does not collect any personally identifiable information. Users that do not want to receive email messages with web beacons can choose to receive their emails in text (non-HTML) format.

We also use, and provide our clients with, the capability to track when a URL has been clicked inside of an email message sent by our system. We use this functionality to track which links were clicked and in what quantity, as well as the aggregate number of links clicked. This click tracking functionality does not collect any personally identifiable information.
