Privacy Policy

As a membership-based organization, it’s our duty to learn about you to better serve you (we hope you’re a member, if not, you can become a member today). But, we also make sure that the information about you is safe. Regardless of how we collect it (here, on our website, or on Facebook, over email or at in-person events), we don’t sell, trade or otherwise transfer any personally identifiable information about you (like your email address, phone number, mailing address or anything else to any third party). We do actively promote the sharing of information, but not your personal information – we leave that up to you. The only exception is, if a fellow constituent wants to get in touch with you, we will contact you and get your permission, in each individual case. We will not share your information with an individual without your express permission. We will never provide a list of our constituents to anybody.

We keep constituents’ personal information on servers that are secure both physically and digitally. The information that you share with us that you tell us is anonymous, stays anonymous. We use the information that we collect about you to improve our programming to better carry out our mission – equipping farmers to build resilient farms and communities. If we have your email address, we use it to send you information related to your membership or participation in one of our programs (that is if you’re a member, again, please join today!); email newsletters; and other updates that you sign up for (you can also unsubscribe from them – just let us know and we’ll take you off our email lists). We may also use your email address for marketing purposes. We use cookies on our website to improve your experience. Cookies are small bits of data that websites or internet service providers put on your computer to know which pages you visit, and how much time you spend on them. You can disable the use of cookies through your internet browser if you don’t want websites using them. Please let us know if you have any questions at all about your data, or our privacy policy. | (515) 232-5661
