Aggregate (non-personal) information may be shared with third parties in our discretion. Nongshim may receive information about you from publicly and commercially available sources (as permitted by law), which we may combine with other information we receive from or about you. Nongshim reserves the right to limit participation in particular programs or promotions based on eligibility factors, including age. Nongshim does not knowingly collect any personal information from children under 13 years of age without parental consent, unless permitted by law. If we learn that a child under the age (13) has provided us with personal information, we will delete it in accordance with applicable law. If you are a parent or legal guardian and think your child under 13 has given us information, you can contact us to remove the information.
