We are committed to safeguarding your privacy and ensuring that your information is protected. As part of our commitment, we train our employees about the importance of privacy and how to handle and manage information appropriately and securely.
WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT AND HOW DO WE USE IT?
We collect personally identifiable information (“PII”) from you when you voluntarily provide it to us, including through a number of features/activities available on the Site. For instance, we may collect PII when you:
- contact us through the Site;
- ask to receive information from us such as press releases or company information;

The PII that we collect may include your:

We will use this PII for the purposes for which it was provided/collected and to:

- provide you with information that you request;

If you no longer wish to receive emails from us, you have the opportunity to unsubscribe from receiving emails from us via the “unsubscribe” link in the emails we send or by contacting us at https://www.postpspc.com/contact-us.
HOW DO WE SHARE PERSONAL INFORMATION?
We engage other companies, including, without limitation, certain of our affiliates and other entities (“Agents”), to perform certain services on our behalf. We may need to share, and may transfer, your information with them in order to provide the Services to you. Other types of Agents with which we may share PII include organizations providing services to support Post functions. Certain other Agents collect PII on our behalf. Pursuant to written agreements with these Agents, which agreements afford appropriate, and all required, protections of your PII, we use these Agents to provide the following services on our behalf:
- email services;
- legal representation, including with regard to prevention harm to our company, its affiliates, our or their products or services, or a person or property (e.g., fraud prevention); and
- stockholder record-keeping, notice, transfer agent and other investor relation services.
All of our Agents are bound by contract to refrain from using your PII for any purpose other than providing the applicable service to us.
We also reserve the right to share information within the family of companies owned by our parent company, Post Holdings, Inc.
In addition to disclosures described above, we may disclose or transfer PII in connection with, or during negotiations of, any merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar partnering transaction. We may also disclose PII to prevent damage or harm to us, our Services or any person or property, if we believe that disclosure is required to meet national security or law enforcement requirements, or in response to a lawful request by public authorities.
Post does not sell or share the PII it collects from you to any unrelated third parties (who are not Agents) so that they may send you commercial promotions or unsolicited offers for unrelated products or services. If you would like more information about our disclosure of your PII to third parties, please contact us at https://www.postpspc.com/contact-us.
California residents may have additional rights and choices regarding your PII. Please see the CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS section below for more information.

- Access to Specific Information and Data Portability Rights. You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past twelve (12) months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (please see Subsection Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights below for more information), we will disclose to you:
- The categories of personal information we collected about you.
- The categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you.
- Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling that personal information.
- The categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information.
- The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you (also called a data portability request).
- If we sold or disclosed your personal information for a business purpose, two separate lists disclosing:
- sales, identifying the personal information categories that each category of recipient purchased; and
- disclosures for a business purpose, identifying the personal information categories that each category of recipient obtained.
- Deletion Request Rights. You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (please see Subsection Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights below for more information), we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.
We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us, or our service provider(s), to:
- Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you.
- Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
- Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
- Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise his/her free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.
- Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.).
- Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information’s deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research’s achievement, if you previously provided informed consent.
- Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
- Comply with a legal obligation.
- Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.
- Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights. To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us through one of the following:
- By telephone at 844-931-2041
- By email at firstname.lastname@example.org
- By mail at 2503 S. Hanley Rd., St. Louis, MO 63144.
Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.
You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:
- Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.
- Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.
Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us.
We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
- Response Timing and Format. We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to ninety (90) days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.
If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.
Any disclosures we provide will only cover the twelve (12)-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
- No Personal Information Sales. We do not sell any personal information that we collect or use.
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:
- Deny you goods or services;
- Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties;
- Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services; or
- Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.
However, we may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive we offer will reasonably relate to your personal information’s value to us and contain written terms that describe the program’s material aspects. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt in consent, which you may revoke at any time.
HOW WE PROTECT PERSONAL INFORMATION
Post maintains reasonable and appropriate technical and organizational security measures designed to help protect against loss, misuse, and alteration of PII collected and processed by Post. However, information transmitted on the Internet and/or stored on systems attached to the Internet is not 100% secure. As a result, we do not ensure, warrant or guarantee the security or integrity of such information.
HOW DO WE RESPOND TO "DO NOT TRACK" SIGNALS?
Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that users can set in their web browsers. When our Site receives a DNT code, except in the case of certain scenarios where a user actively and knowingly provides PII (e.g. contact forms), our Site will not track your use across multiple websites, but other websites (including, without limitation, certain of our affiliates’ and third party providers’ websites) to which we link may continue to track you. When we receive web requests from a user who enables DNT by actively choosing an opt-out setting in their browser, we will take reasonable efforts to disable tracking cookies/scripts (e.g. Google Analytics, Google Adwords, Facebook, Twitter, and/or other third party scripts).
