American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture (“AFBFA”) values individual privacy and we want to give our website visitors the opportunity to know what information we collect about them and how they can limit the use of personally-identifiable information beyond the purposes for which they first provided it. At all times, however, AFBFA reserves the right to disclose information where required by law or to comply with valid legal process (such as a search warrant, subpoena or court order), to protect AFBFA’s rights or property, including without limitation in the event of a transfer of control of AFBFA or substantially all of its assets, or during emergencies when safety is at risk.
Although this website is intended for use by both adults and children, AFBFA does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13. If AFBFA obtains knowledge that it has personally identifiable information about a child under 13 in retrievable form, AFBFA will immediately destroy that information, and delete that information from its files.
Types of Information We Collect and How We Use It
Personally Identifiable Information
If you are over the age of 13, we collect may your name, address, phone number and email address if you communicate that information to us voluntarily. We will not share your personally identifiable information with anyone outside AFBFA and its affiliated companies.
We may use this information to respond to an email or other inquiry or request, to help improve our website and our services, to customize your experience at our website, or to send updates or notices about our organization. We may also combine this information with other generally or publicly available information to help us identify visitors’ preferences or interests.
In some cases, when you visit our Website, we may also collect information that is non-personally identifiable information or information that, by itself, cannot be used to identify or contact you. Examples of this type of information include the type of Internet browser or computer operating system you use, the date and time you visited our Website, the pages you accessed, the name of the website from which you linked to our Website and other anonymous data involving your use of our Website. We use this information to analyze trends and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. This information is not linked to any personally identifiable information.
Data Integrity and Security
We make reasonable commercial efforts to keep any information you provide as secure as possible. Only authorized employees or agents are permitted to have access to personally identifiable data about website visitors, and that access is limited to what is reasonably needed to perform an employee’s responsibilities, such as providing updates or notices or customer service.
