SCOPE OF POLICY
This Policy addresses personal information (“Personal Information”) and does not apply to information about corporate or commercial entities who are our suppliers or customers. Personal Information as used in this Policy means information about an identifiable individual, such as the name, date of birth, gender, home address, personal phone number and email address, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, personal interests and preferences. Personal Information does not include:
- information concerning corporate or commercial entities;
- publicly available information; and
- information that cannot be associated with a specific individual.
This Policy governs Farmzy, its users, employees, agents and affiliates in collecting, using and disclosing Personal Information during the course of the operations of our Platform. Farmzy reserves the right to change this Policy at any time without notice.
Farmzy is accountable and responsible for Personal Information under its control. Farmzy has designated a Privacy Officer who is accountable for Farmzy’s compliance with this Policy.
Farmzy will adopt procedures to protect Personal Information, receive and respond to complaints and inquiries, train staff regarding privacy policies and procedures and communicate policies and procedures to you.
Farmzy collects your Personal Information for the following purposes:
- to enable you to access and use the Platform;
- to enable you to communicate with other Users, including but not limited to by sending them messages or other information during the Booking purposes;
- to operate, protect, improve and optimize the Platform, Farmzy’s business, and Users’ experience, such as to perform analytics, conduct research, personalize or otherwise customize your experience, and to provide customer service;
- to collect debts owed to Farmzy;
- to send you service, support and administrative messages, reminders, technical notices, updates, security alerts, and information requested by you;
- to send you marketing, advertising, and promotional messages and other information that may be of interest to you, including information about Farmzy, our services, or general promotions for partner campaigns and services;
- to administer referral programs, rewards, surveys, sweepstakes, contests, or other promotional activities or events sponsored or managed by Farmzy or our third party business partners; and
- to comply with legal and regulatory requirements.
When your Personal Information is to be used for a purpose not previously identified, the new purpose will be disclosed to you prior to such use, and your consent will be sought unless the use is authorized or required by law.
Farmzy will obtain your consent to collect, use or disclose Personal Information except where Farmzy is authorized or required by law to do so without consent. Your consent may be express or implied.
Consent may be provided orally, in writing, electronically, through inaction (such as when you fail to notify Farmzy that you do not wish your Personal Information collected/used/disclosed for optional purposes following reasonable notice to you) or otherwise. For example, oral consent could be expressed over the telephone at the time information is being collected; electronically when submitting an agreement, application or other information; or in writing when signing an agreement or application form.
You may withdraw your consent at any time, subject to legal or contractual restrictions. You may withdraw your consent by email request at firstname.lastname@example.org. Upon receipt of your written notice, Farmzy will inform you of the likely consequences of the withdrawal, which may include the inability of Farmzy to provide certain products or services for which the delivery of that information is a prerequisite.
You hereby consent to Farmzy disclosing your Personal Information to a third party provider under contract with Farmzy for the purposes of payment processing and storage. In such circumstances the third party shall hold and use your Personal Information in compliance with privacy laws and shall not disclose your personal information without the consent of Farmzy pursuant to this Policy.
