At AgPreference we are committed to maintaining the confidentiality of financial and other non-public information about our customers and other users of our web sites. As a matter of corporate policy, we have implemented procedures, systems and controls at the association designed to safeguard private information and prevent its disclosure to unauthorized parties.
We maintain strict security standards and procedures to help prevent unauthorized access to confidential information. We also incorporate physical and electronic safeguards and make every effort to protect the security of personal information. Our web site is hosted on secure servers. Any information collected by us is stored in private files behind a firewall designed to protect confidential information by denying unauthorized access by unauthorized users. We have policies and procedures in place to govern the proper handling of personal information and train our employees on their responsibility to protect confidential information. We may use third party suppliers and/or service providers to facilitate our services. We do not authorize these suppliers or service providers to retain, disclose or sell personal information to others.
We collect and store a variety of information from users of our corporate web sites, including:
This information does not identify the visitor personally. Also, the AgPreference web site utilizes cookies to ‘remember’ visitors when they return to the site. A cookie is a small amount of text sent from a web site to a visitor's computer while visiting the site. The cookie is stored on the visitor's hard drive. AgPreference uses discreet information stored in cookies in order to provide a customized user experience. However, visitors can set their web browsers to prevent cookies from being sent.
The association may retain the content of email messages sent to the association, along with the sender’s email address and our response. We provide the same protections for these electronic communications that we employ in the maintenance of information received by mail and telephone.
To ensure the security and availability of the AgPreference owned and managed web sites, we employ several solutions to monitor network traffic and server loads, and to identify unauthorized attempts to access or damage the site. Unauthorized attempts to access, alter, or damage this site are strictly prohibited, and may be punishable under law.
Federal regulations may require us to disclose confidential information in certain situations. Such situations include requests from law enforcement agencies or criminal or civil legal proceedings. In addition, as required by federal laws targeting terrorism funding and money laundering activities, we collect information and take actions necessary to verify the identity of individuals and organizations with which we do business. Consequently, we reserve the right to disclose any information we deem necessary to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request, including personally identifiable information.
