Growers Privacy Policy

This Data Privacy Policy describes what personal data Growers (“we”, “us”, “our”) collects, how we use and protect it, and what rights the individual identified or identifiable in such data (“you”, your”) has with respect to this information. The terms and requirements of this Privacy Policy are also specifically included in any contract you may enter into with us.

1. What personal data we collect and how we collect it.

When you use our services or website, or otherwise contact us, we collect, process, manage and use a limited amount of personal information—in particular, your name, email address and other contact information that you provide. Your company, association or other group of which you may be a member may also provide this information to us. We also process, manage and use IP addresses, “cookies” data, and other usage and device data that is collected automatically when you access and use our website and services.

2. How we use your personal data.

We control, process and use your personal data—

• to provide our services to you and perform our contracts with you.
• to provide information about our services and activities, including marketing information, to you.
• to operate, personalize, maintain and improve our services, apps and website.
• to comply with legal and regulatory requirements.
• for other related lawful and legitimate interests.

We use and keep your personal data only as long as reasonably necessary to carry out these purposes. We may combine the various types of data we collect and use it as described in this Privacy Policy. We may also anonymize and aggregate any data collected, and use and transfer any  such anonymized data without notice, consent or limitation, so long as such data does not and cannot be used to identify you.

3. What rights you have in your personal data.

You have the right to review our Privacy Policy and to opt in to our use of your personal data for  communicating with you, including marketing communications; you may opt out of such use of your  personal data at any time. You also have the right to get access to, correct, have deleted or anonymized, or transfer your personal data. (Note that these rights do not apply to non-personal  information related to your company or other organization. Any additional or different privacy  terms and conditions required by your organization in a separate contract with us shall apply.)

4. Who processes and uses your personal data and where.

We control, process and use personal data internally, and we give some third parties access to such  data to help us process the data and provide certain aspects of our services to and communications with you. These may include your business partners (e.g. agronomists, agronomic service providers (ASPs), equipment dealers), our reseller and other business partners working with you, and technology providers (e.g. Cloud data services) that we use to provide our services to you. We will provide access to your personal data to our business partners only if they are legally bound by a contract with us to protect your personal data in accordance with all terms of this policy and our contract with you. For other third party technology providers, the terms their own specific privacy policy will apply to their protection of your personal data, but we will only engage with such service and equipment providers if their terms of protection for your personal data are materially consistent with the terms and protections of this policy. We and our third-party providers collect and process your data principally in the U.S., but some third-party providers’ services also do so in Europe and other countries and regions.

5. How we protect your personal data.

We use appropriate security safeguards to protect your personal data against loss or destruction and unauthorized access, use, disclosure, transfer, or alteration. In the event of a data breach, we will promptly take steps to mitigate the breach and if required will notify relevant organisations, individuals and/or authorities. You understand, however, that no data transmission over the internet or stored on a server can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, and we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any data you disclose or transmit to us and cannot be responsible for the theft, loss, destruction or inadvertent disclosure of personal data.

6. When and how we may transfer your personal data.

We may transfer personal data in our possession to a new owner of our business or in connection with a corporate transaction, such as a merger, asset sale, joint venture, bankruptcy or other reorganization or dissolution, so long as the acquirer is legally bound to protect and use your
personal data only under the terms of this policy and our contract with you. We also reserve the right to maintain, use or disclose personal data if required to do so by law, or in the good faith belief that such action is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process, respond to claims or protect the rights, property or safety of our company, employees, customers or the public. We will not transfer or sell your personal data except as described in this policy or with your consent.

7. How changes to our Privacy Policy work.

From time to time we may need to change some of the terms of this policy in order to conform with changes to legal requirements or our services. We reserve the right to make such changes at any time, subject to notice and posting of the new policy terms on our website. You may opt-out of any subsequent use of your personal data at any time.

8. How to contact us.

You can contact us with requests, inquiries or complaints related to this policy at info@growers.ag.
