Email addresses are never shared, sold, rented, or traded to any company outside of the Carrot-Top umbrella of companies for online solicitation. Carrot-Top does not practice or condone the use of unsolicited emails. We take every measure to verify our email database. 

Phone numbers are also never shared, sold, rented, or traded to any company outside of the Carrot-Top umbrella of companies for phone solicitation. Carrot-Top will utilize the phone number to enhance customer service and to offer occasional promotions. 

Sometimes we make our list of customer names available to other reputable companies offering similar products. We never rent our list of customer e-mail addresses. Like many major B2B catalog companies, we occasionally “rent” our business mailing list to reputable businesses. Those partners rent the ability to send a solicitation to our business customers.

These companies are only permitted to use information in the performance of their assigned jobs for Carrot-Top Industries.
