• The information we collect and why we collect it;
• How we use that information;
• How we share information; and
• The choices we offer.
Personally Identifiable Information We Collect:
We may collect, or you may voluntarily submit, personally identifiable information when you are using the Websites. The personally identifiable information which you may provide to us could include, but is not limited to:
• Your name;
• Your contact information (including, without limitation, address and email address);
• Your IP address; and
• Other personal information.
Non-Personal or Aggregate Information We Collect:
When you access our Websites, we may automatically collect non-personally identifiable information from you, such as IP host address, web pages viewed, browser type, operating system, referring service, search information, device type, page views, usage, and browsing habits on the Websites and similar data. We may also aggregate demographic information collected from our users (such as the number of users in a particular geographical location) in a manner which does not identify any one individual. We may also aggregate information collected offline in connection with the Websites, obtain non-personally identifiable information from third party sources, and develop aggregate information by anonymizing previously collected personally identifiable information.
It is possible at times when collecting non-personally identifiable information through automatic means that we may unintentionally collect or receive personally identifiable information that is mixed in with the non-personally identifiable information. While we will make reasonable efforts to prevent such incidental data collection, the possibility still exists. If you believe that we have inadvertently collected your personal information, please notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will only use your personally identifiable information as described below, unless you have specifically consented to another type of use, either at the time the personally identifiable information is collected from you or through some other form of consent from you or notification to you:
• We may share your personally identifiable information collected in connection with providing the Websites.
• We may use your personally identifiable information to respond to your inquiries or requests.
• We may share your personally identifiable information with third parties (collectively, the “Third Party Vendors”) to further the purpose for which you provided such information to us. For example, we may share your information with our Email Service Provider, for the purpose of sending emails. We urge you to read the privacy practices of all of our Third Party Vendors before submitting any personally identifiable information through the Service.
• We may disclose personally identifiable information as required by law or legal process.
• We may disclose personally identifiable information to investigate suspected fraud, harassment or other violations of any law, rule, or regulation, or the terms or policies for our services or our sponsors.
• We may transfer your personally identifiable information in connection with the sale or merger or change of control of Deep Roots Harvest or the division responsible for the services with which your personally identifiable information is associated.
• We may share your personally identifiable information with an affiliate of Deep Roots Harvest who is in the same corporate family as long as their privacy practices are substantially similar to ours.
Non-personally identifiable or aggregate information may be used by us for any purposes permitted by law and may be shared with any number of parties, provided that such information shall not specifically identify you.
Cookies and Similar Technologies:
If you delete your cookies, change browsers or use a different cookie, our cookie (or an opt-out cookie) may no longer work and you will have to reinput (or opt-out) again.
Analytics and Conversion Tracking:
We may collect information about your computer, including your IP address, operating system, and browser type, for system administration and in order to create reports. This is statistical data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.
Like many services, the Analytics Service uses first-party cookies to track visitor interactions as in our case, where they are used to collect information about how visitors use our site. We then use the information to compile reports and to help us improve our Websites.
Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive. These cookies are used to store information, such as the time that the current visit occurred, whether the visitor has been to the site before, and what site referred the visitor to the web page.
The Analytics Service collects information anonymously. They report website trends without identifying individual visitors. You can opt out of the Analytics Service without affecting how you visit our Websites. For more information on opting out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites you use, visit https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
We may also use Google conversion tracking and/or similar services to help us understand your and other users’ use of the Websites.
Automatically Collected Information:
When you access the Websites or open one of our HTML emails, we may automatically record certain information from your system by using cookies and other types of tracking technologies. This “automatically collected” information may include your IP address, a unique user ID, device type, device identifiers, browser types and language, referring and exit pages, platform type, version of software installed, system type, the content and pages that you access on the Websites, the number of clicks, the amount of time spent on pages, the dates and times that you visit the Websites, and other similar information. Depending on the law of your country of residence, your IP address may legally be considered personally identifiable information.
The security of your personally identifiable information is very important to us. When we collect your personally identifiable information online, we use reasonable efforts to protect it from unauthorized access. However, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that your personally identifiable information will be completely free from unauthorized access by third parties such as hackers and your use of our Websites demonstrates your assumption of this risk. We have put in place reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard the information we collect. Only those employees who need access to your information in order to perform their duties are authorized to have access to your personally identifiable information. For more information on protecting your privacy, please visit www.ftc.gov/privacy.
Your Disclosures In Blogs And Other Social Media:
You should be aware that personally identifiable information which you voluntarily include and transmit online on the Websites or in a publicly accessible blog, chat room, social media platform, or otherwise online, or that you share in an open forum such as an in-person panel or survey, may be viewed and used by others without any restrictions. We are unable to control such uses of your personally identifiable information, and by using the Websites or any other online services you assume the risk that the personally identifiable information provided by you may be viewed and used by third parties for any number of purposes.
Protection for Children:
We require each user of our Websites to confirm prior to entering that the user is 21 years of age or older. Thus, we generally do not collect personally identifiable information from those under the age of 21. If at any time in the future we plan to collect personally identifiable information from those under the age of 21, such collection and use, to the extent applicable, shall, when required, be done in compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) and appropriate consent from the child’s parent or guardian will be sought where required by COPPA. If we become aware that personally identifiable information from a child under 13 has been collected without such child’s parent or guardian’s consent, we will use all reasonable efforts to delete such information from our database.
As a convenience to you, we may provide links to third-party services within our Websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of these third-party sites. When you link away from our Websites, you do so at your own risk.
Communication Opt-Out Process:
Communications with Deep Roots Harvest:
By using the Websites, you expressly consent to receive in-product communications from us (including, without limitation, push notifications).
Any phone calls and/or text messages delivered to your phone or device may cause you to incur extra data, text messaging, or other charges from your wireless carrier. MESSAGE AND DATA RATES MAY APPLY. You are solely responsible for any carrier charges incurred as a result of phone and/or text communications from Deep Roots Harvest.
No Rights of Third Parties:
California and CCPA Privacy Rights and Disclosures:
This California and CCPA Privacy Rights and Disclosure section addresses legal obligations and rights laid out in the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) and other laws that apply only to California residents. These obligations and rights apply to businesses doing business in California and to California residents and information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with California consumers or households (“California Information”). It does not apply to information that has been de-identified or aggregated as provided by the CCPA.
Your California Privacy Rights to Request Disclosure of Information We Collect and Share About You:
If you are a California resident, California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits you to request information about our practices related to the disclosure of your personal information by Deep Roots Harvest to certain third parties for their direct marketing purposes. You may be able to opt out of our sharing of your personal information with unaffiliated third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes in certain circumstances. Please send your request (along with your full name, email address, postal address, and the subject line labeled “Your California Privacy Rights”) by email at email@example.com.
• In addition, if you are a California resident, the CCPA grants you the right to request certain information about our practices with respect to California Information. In particular, you can request the following:
• The categories and specific pieces of your California Information that we’ve collected;
• The categories of sources from which we collected California Information;
• The business or commercial purposes for which we collected or sold California Information; and
• The categories of third parties with which we shared California Information.
You can submit a request to us for the following additional information:
• The categories of third parties to whom we’ve sold California Information, and the category or categories of California Information sold to each; and
• The categories of third parties to whom we’ve disclosed California Information, and the category or categories of California Information disclosed to each.
Your Right to Request the Deletion of California Information:
Upon your request, we will delete the California Information we have collected about you, except for situations when that information is necessary for us to: provide you with a product or service that you requested; perform a contract we entered into with you; maintain the functionality or security of our Websites; comply with or exercise rights provided by the law; or use the information internally in ways that are compatible with the context in which you provided the information to us, or that are reasonably aligned with your expectations based on your relationship with us.
Your Right to Ask Us Not to Sell Your California Information:
You can always tell us not to sell your California Information by visiting our Do Not Sell Page.
How To Exercise Your California Rights:
You may exercise your rights to request access to your California Information, deletion of your California Information, or to request we not sell your California Information by submitting a form. When you submit a request, we will ask you to provide an email address which we will contact to confirm the request was not fraudulently submitted.
In addition, for access and deletion requests, we may use a third-party verification service to confirm that you are who you say you are. Our verification service does this by matching information you provide against information held about you in its records, or, if necessary, by allowing you to submit documents proving your identity.
If you are the parent of a child under 13 years of age, you may also submit a request on behalf of your child. In that event, we will ask you to provide your child’s email address, to verify your identity, and to submit a signed form authorizing us to proceed with the request regarding your child’s California Information.
You may also designate an authorized agent to submit a request on your behalf. To do so, we will require either (1) a valid power of attorney, or (2) signed written permission from you. In the event your authorized agent is relying on signed written permission, we may also need to verify your identity and/or contact you directly to confirm permission to proceed with the request.
Our Support for the Exercise of Your Data Rights:
You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment if you exercise any of the rights explained in this section. We are committed to providing you control over your California Information, and we will not disadvantage you if you choose to exercise your rights.
California Consumers Under 16 Years Old:
We require all users of our Websites to confirm they are at least 21 years of age prior to being allowed access to the Websites. The CCPA’s provisions relating to California Consumers under 16 years of age are therefore inapplicable.
California Consumers Under 18 Years Old:
We require all users of our Websites to confirm they are at least 21 years of age prior to being allowed access to the Websites. The CCPA’s provisions relating to California Consumers under 13 years of age are therefore inapplicable.
