At Samuel Adams, we’re committed to protecting your privacy. Federal and various state laws require us to tell you how we collect, use, share, and protect your personal information. These laws also limit how we can use your personal information. Please read this Policy carefully to understand what we do with the personal information we collect.
When you contact us to help you with a question or concern, any personal information you provide is voluntary. We collect and use only the minimum information necessary to respond to your questions and concerns. We may also collect your personal information under other circumstances. In most cases, we collect limited personal information, such as name, address, telephone number, birth date, and/or email address. In limited cases, such as with purchases or resume submissions, we may collect other personal information such as credit card information and resume-related information.
Examples of when we might collect your personal information include, but are not necessarily limited to:
When you make a purchase from our E-Store;
When you enter into a contest or promotion;
When you subscribe to our newsletter;
When you apply for a job;
When you enter for a prize in our Steinhoisting game;
When you post a comment on our blog; and
When you submit a question or comment on our Contact Us page.
Within Samuel Adams, we may use your personal information to process a purchase, contest or promotion entry, or resume, or to help us properly respond to your comment or question.
We also use third parties to help provide some of the services we offer on this website, and sometimes your information may be shared with those third parties.

When you submit your resume, your information is processed through a third party vendor.
When you enter into a contest or subscribe to our newsletter, your information may be shared with third party vendors to help facilitate those contests and/or deliver the newsletter.
We may also share aggregated non-identifiable information about our general readership with third parties in order to help market our products and develop new vendor and customer relationships.

We use commercially suitable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect on this site. These procedures include, but are not limited to, firewalls, encryption, intrusion detection, and site monitoring. We also limit access to any personally identifiable information we receive to employees who need access to that information in order to do their jobs. However, no data protection procedures are entirely infallible. As a result, while we strive to protect your personally identifiable information, we cannot guarantee that it will be 100% secure.

We participate in the EU-US Privacy Shield. We protect consumer personal information received for processing from clients in the European Economic Area and Switzerland in accordance with the Privacy Shield Principles. We have designated the American Arbitration Association to address complaints and provide appropriate recourse free of charge. Under certain circumstances, you will be able to invoke binding arbitration.
We also protect all data transferred to the third parties by entering into contracts with the third party ensuring that your data is only processed for the limited and specified purposes consistent with your authorization. We will require that the third party recipient provide the same level of protection as reflected in the Privacy Shield principles and will take all reasonable and appropriate steps to ensure that the third-party recipient effectively processes the personal information. Upon request, we will provide a summary or a representative copy of the relevant privacy provisions of our contract with the third-party recipient.
