Privacy Policy

Information collection

Wholesale & Retail Food Alliance (WARFA) is the sole owner of the information collected on www.retailfoodalliance.com. When filling out and submitting our web site's Contact or Registration forms, the collection of some information is also required by the company, but is kept strictly confidential and is not given out or used by any third parties.

The company does provide online ordering of its products via use of a PayPal shopping cart. You do NOT have to have a PayPal account to order products from us. You may use your own Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express credit card. Information collected by PayPal is limited only to what is required to complete an online credit card transaction for purchasing our product(s). To see PayPal's terms and conditions, please go to their web site to view the PayPal Privacy Policy.

WARFA's use of profiles, cookies, and log files


A profile is stored information that is kept on individual users that details their viewing preferences. WARFA does not store information that we collect through clear gifs and/or third parties to create a profile of our users.


A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's computer tied to information about the user. WARFA does capture limited information about visits to our site using cookies. However, usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site.

We use this data element only to analyze general traffic patterns (e.g., what pages are most/least popular) and to perform routine system maintenance. We do not use cookies to collect or distribute visitor information to be used in mailing lists, surveys, or for any other purpose.

Log files

Like most standard website servers we use log files to analyze user activity. This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information.

Information sharing

Legal disclaimer

Although we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order, or legal process served on our website.

Non-Disclosure of visitors' information

We ask you to supply various personal data when filling out our Contact and Registration forms on this website, but we will use this information only to respond to your inquiry. We treat this customer information as private and confidential, and we will not disclose this information to other individuals or organizations unless required by law. We will not distribute customer information to be used in mailing lists, surveys, or any other purpose other than what is required to perform our services. We are committed to safeguarding the privacy of our customers' personal data; therefore, we do not share (sell, rent, or otherwise disclose) aggregated demographic information to third parties.


This website contains links to other sites. Please be aware that WARFA is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this website.


From time to time our site may request information from users via surveys. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary, and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and address) and demographic information (such as zip code). Survey information may be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site. Users' personally identifiable information is not shared with third parties.

Refunds - Food Safety Products and Training Courses

Purchases are final and non-refundable. However, exceptions may be made by the Wholesale & Retail Food Alliance team, primarily in the area of payment for training coursework, on a case-by-case basis.

Notification of changes

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement, the home page, and other places we deem appropriate so that our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.

If, however, we are going to use users' personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection, we will notify by posting a notice on our website for 30 days.
