Privacy Policy and Website Terms of Use

PRIVACY POLICY

The statement below discloses the privacy practices, policies and terms of reference for AgriBiz Communications Corp. (AgriBiz). If you have any questions about these practices and policies, please contact Adele Buettnern, Privacy Officer, by phone at 306-933-4404 or by email at office@agribiz.ca

Information Collection, Use and Disclosure

AgriBiz respects your personal privacy. We appreciate your concern about your personal information, and believe ensuring the security of your personal information is important. We strive to protect any personal information you give us (address, name, email address, etc.). If we ask you to provide us with any personal information, we will tell you the purposes for which we intend to use that information. We will not collect, use, or disclose your personal information without your consent. We collect no personal information about you unless you choose to provide that information to us. We do not use techniques that collect personal information about you without your knowledge. Your personal information is not lent or sold to anyone for any purposes.

From time to time, we may ask clients to provide certain information which is added to our internal membership database and retained over the life of our relationship or until no longer deemed relevant. The information maintained in the database includes: name, address and contact information, and billing details. The information is accessible only by AgriBiz staff and can only be used for improving the services we provide to you.

We use information on website traffic to compile statistics and reports, but this format does not include any information that is personally identifiable. We analyze aggregated demographic information to understand our clientele, but this information cannot be used to identify any particular individual.

Fraud Prevention

AgriBiz reserves the right to co-operate with local, national, or international law enforcement or other authorities in the investigation of improper or unlawful activities and this may require the disclosure of personal information. If such an investigation requires disclosure of personal information kept in our records, we may be required by law to cooperate. We also reserve the right to report improper or unlawful user activities on our site, which may require the disclosure of personal information relating to those individuals conducting such improper or unlawful activities.

AgriBiz Website and Database Security

We use appropriate security safeguards to protect your personal information against loss, theft, and unauthorized access. However, while we make many efforts to ensure the security of your personal information, because of the nature of data transmission over the internet, we can not guarantee it and if you transmit your personal information via the internet, it is done at your own risk. For instance, email, which is certainly convenient, is not a secure means to send personal information, as it is not encrypted. The AgriBiz privacy policy applies only to AgriBiz and we are not responsible for the privacy practices and policies of third parties, such as those who listed as links on the AgriBiz website.

Accuracy Of Information

We strive to ensure that any personal information we retain and use is as accurate, complete and up-to-date as necessary for the purposes for which we will use it. We routinely update personal information for these purposes. Nonetheless, if our records regarding your personal information are inaccurate or incomplete, we will amend that information at your request.

Access To Information

At your request, we will provide to you a statement explaining the extent to which we hold personal information about you, and we will explain how that information has been used or disclosed by us.

Opting Out

If you wish to have any of your personal information removed from our databases, or if you no longer want us to send any further communications to you, please send an email to us at office@agribiz.ca

This page will be kept current if information about the collection and use of your personal data changes.
