However, to take full advantage of this site it is often necessary for us to request personal information about you. As an example, some personal information may be required should you choose to make a purchase from our online store, participate in sweepstakes or other special promotions, and/or request a newsletter. Yuengling collects personal information only when it’s voluntarily submitted by you – the user.
Information and How We Use It
Personal information we may ask you to input may include your name, address, telephone number, email address, date of birth, credit card information, and shipping information. Some or all of the information used when you purchase items through our online store, register for a sweepstakes and/or choose to participate in other interactive offerings on our website may be collected. We use the personal information you provide for such things as processing purchases, completing entries for sweepstakes, delivering products and prizes. We use emails to respond to emails that we receive as well as to communicate about other interactive areas of the website. So, we may also send emails regarding promotions, new offerings or features.
Website Use Information
Like most other commercial websites, our website utilizes a standard technology called “cookies” (see explanation below, “What Are Cookies?”) and Web server log files to collect information about how our website is used. The information we gather by these means may include such things as the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our website, and the websites viewed just before and just after visiting the Yuengling site.
What Are Cookies?
A cookie is a small data file a website will request to store with your browser. These files often contain unique identifiers that help us customize the website experience for each individual user.
We use the information you provide for purposes of conducting our business activities. This means providing the products and services you requested, processing your payments, monitoring the use of the service and associated marketing and promotional efforts. Overall, this allows us to improve our content and service offerings as well as customize our site’s content, layout and services.
As a default, most browsers accept cookies. You may be able to modify your browser to notify you when a cookie is set or to reject all cookies. Those who choose not to accept cookies may not be able to use certain functions of the website that require registration – sweepstakes or electronic commerce for example.
Who Else Receives Your Personal Information?
We do not share, sell, lend or lease any of the information that uniquely identifies you (such as email addresses or personal details) with anyone other than what is necessary to process transactions or provide services that you have requested. For example, when you make a purchase, we share the information for that purchase with credit card processing companies who process the transaction, and with service providers who help us make this service operate online.

Choice and the Ability to Opt-In/Opt-Out
We provide users the opportunity to opt out of receiving promotional materials via emails. These opt-out features are located in the registration areas for purchases, newsletter sign-up, and sweepstakes.
How Do We Protect Your Information?
While any transmission across the Internet can potentially be compromised, we make every reasonable effort to protect your data including SSL (secure socket layer) encryption. You can help protect yourself by guarding your password – do not share it with anyone else. We are not responsible for any unauthorized interception of data.

Security of Personal Information
Your payment and personal information is always safe. When you place orders on our Sites, all of your order information, including your card number and delivery address, is transmitted through the Internet using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. SSL technology causes your browser to encrypt your order information before transmitting it to our secure server. SSL technology, an industry standard, is designed to prevent someone other than operators of our Sites from capturing and viewing your personal information.
Our Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software is the industry standard and among the best software available today for secure commerce transactions. It encrypts all of your personal information, including credit card number, name, and address, so that it cannot be read over the internet.
