Privacy Policy Scope

This Privacy Policy identifies and describes the way Farmsquare uses and protects the information we collect about users. All use of Farmsquare agricultural products and services, as well as visits to our website, are subject to this Privacy Policy.

We may collect different types of personal and other information based on your use of our agricultural products and services:

  • Contact Information that allows us to communicate with you — including your name, address, and e-mail address;
  • Equipment, Performance, Viewing and other Technical Information about your use of our network, services, products or websites.

We collect information in two primary ways:

  • You give it to us when you login with your social network credential;
  • We collect it automatically when you use our agricultural products and services.

We may use the information we collect in a variety of ways, including:

  • Providing you with the best user experience possible;
  • Providing the services you use and to respond to your questions;
  • Communicating with you regarding service updates, offers, and promotions;
  • Delivering customized content that may be of interest to you;
  • Addressing network integrity and security issues;
  • Investigating, preventing or taking action regarding illegal activities, violations of our Terms of Serviceor Acceptable Use Policies.

  • We collect information about your activity in Farmsquare applications and website for a number of purposes using technologies such as cookies, user behaviour, and server log files.
  • We use that information to help tailor the content you see on our site.

Personal data protection

Farmsquare treats the personal data of its users with the utmost responsibility. We believe that each user has the right to know how his personal data is used, the purposes of such use and how it is possible to stop the use of his or her data.

We classify user personal data as anonymous (which cannot be associated with a living, existing person) and identifiable (which can be associated with a living, existing person). Anonymous data is collected and processed starting at the moment you visit our website. Identifiable data, in the other hand, is only collected and processed once we receive your explicit consent by accepting our Terms of Use.

Information Sharing

We may provide Personal Information to non-Farmsquare companies or other third parties for purposes such as:

  • Complying with court orders and other legal process;
  • To assist with identity verification, and to prevent fraud and identity theft;
  • Enforcing our agreements and property rights.

Additionally, when you complete a purchase with Farmsquare service, we share your submitted shipping address and phone number for shipping purposes only. This information is shared with the entities fulfilling and shipping your order, such as the merchant and the shipping provider.

Anonymous & Aggregate Information

  • We collect some information on an anonymous basis. We also may anonymize the personal information we collect about you.
  • We obtain aggregate data by combining anonymous data that meet certain criteria into groups.
  • We may share aggregate or anonymous information in various formats with trusted non-farmsquare entities, and may work with those entities to do research and provide products and services.

Safeguarding Your Information: Our Policy on Data Protection and Security

  • We do not sell your Personal Information to anyone for any purpose.
  • We maintain information about you in our business records while you are a user, or until it is no longer needed for business, tax, or legal purposes.
  • We have implemented encryption or other appropriate security controls to protect Personal Information when stored or transmitted by Farmsquare
  • We require non-Farmsquare companies acting on our behalf to protect any Personal Information they may receive in a manner consistent with this Policy. We do not allow them to use such information for any other purpose.
