TheUrbanFarm.org is owned and operated by The Urban Farm. The Urban Farm collects personal and non-personal information on its site. The Urban Farm is committed to protecting the privacy of its users.

The Urban Farm will not sell or give away your name, mail address, phone number, e-mail address, credit card number or any other information to anyone, unless you have provided written permission.

 

NOTICE: The Urban Farm will ask you when we need information that personally identifies you (personal information) or allows us to contact you. Generally this information is requested when you submit a form or request for services, or when you order e-mail newsletters. We use your Personal Information for three primary purposes:

WHAT WE DO WITH THE INFORMATION YOU SHARE

When you contact us, you provide us with your contact information, including your name and e-mail address and potentially business-related information.

The Urban Farm occasionally hires other companies or individuals to provide limited services on our behalf, including various teaching services. We will only provide those companies or individuals with the information they need to deliver the service or products, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.

 

The Urban Farm will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on The Urban Farm or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of The Urban Farm and its family of websites, and, (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of The Urban Farm, its websites, or the public.

We encourage our users to be aware when they leave TheUrbanFarm.org and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that they visit.

 

CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY STATEMENT

If we later change our Privacy Policy, we will post those changes on our website so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personal information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner by making changes to their Newsletter signup form. <<UPDATED 10/08>
