When we use the term "Personal Information" we mean information that we directly associate with a specific person, or that can reasonably be used to identify a specific person such as a name, address, telephone number, email address, or Internet Protocol ("IP") address. The Website collects some information from you that is voluntarily provided by you, and other information that is collected by the Website automatically.

Information Collected Automatically from Your Use of the Website

When you visit the Website, we may automatically log certain information about you. This may include information about the type of browser you use, the server name and IP address through which you access the Internet, the date and time you access the Website, the pages you access while at the Website, Internet service provider information, device type, and the Internet address of the Website, if any, from which you linked directly to, or depart from, the Website.

The Website, or companies, that are used to operate this Website may place a "cookie" on your computer in order to allow you to use the Website and to personalize your experience. We also use cookies and other technologies to help manage online advertising on third-party Websites. These technologies allow us to learn which advertisements bring users to our Website. They also allow us to collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party Websites so we can manage advertising effectiveness and provide you with online advertisements relevant to you. A "cookie" is a small piece of data that can be sent by a Web server to your computer, which then may be stored by your browser on your computer's hard drive. Cookies are useful in allowing more efficient login for users (where relevant), tracking transaction histories, preserving information between sessions, and improving the functionality of the Website. Some Web browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer and Google Chrome may have features that can notify you when you receive a cookie, or prevent cookies from being sent. If you disable cookies, however, you may not be able to use certain personalized functions of this Website. For more information on deleting or controlling cookies, visit www.aboutcookies.org.

If you have an account and you log-in to the Website, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie is discarded when you close your browser. When you log-in, we will also setup several cookies to save your log-in information and your screen display choices. If you select "Remember Me," your log-in information will persist for 90 days. If you log-out of your account, the log-in cookies will be removed.

In addition to the use of cookies, we may use certain third-party services, such as Google Analytics, to help us analyze how people use the Website. We use this information to evaluate your and other users' use of the Website, compiling reports on Website activity, and providing other services relating to Website activity and Internet usage.

We reserve the right to use or disclose any information in aggregate form, for any purpose, in our sole judgment.

How your personal information is protected

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personal Information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information it collects online from visitors to the Website.

This Website is not directed to children under 13. We do not knowingly attempt to solicit or receive Personal Information from children under 13. If we discover that we have received Personal Information from an individual reasonably believed to be under the age of 13, we will delete such information from its systems. If you are the parent or legal guardian and you believe we may have inadvertently collected Personal Information from a child under 13, please contact us to request the child's information be deleted by contacting us at lexi.kisling@farmhold.com.

Further, to the extent the GDPR is implicated, where we use your Personal Information in relation to improvement, development, or marketing of our products or services, for reasons of safety and security, or to satisfy regulatory requirements, other than in connection with our agreement or request, we do this on the basis of our (or a third-party's) legitimate interests or with your consent, as required.
