Hawai‘i Agricultural Foundation Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy was updated on September 3, 2015.

HAF takes your privacy seriously both online and offline. This Privacy Policy applies to information collected online through our website, social media sites and mobile applications, as well as information collected offline through promotions.

 

OUR PRIVACY POLICY EXPLAINS:

We want you to know upfront that we provide you an "opt-out" option for some personal information collection — please see "What Choices Do You Have About Your Information?"

 

WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?

We collect information about you in a number of ways, including when you register for an account on our website, subscribe to local inside C.S.A., purchase Gift Cards, or make purchases, as well as when you use our website and mobile applications, Facebook page, Twitter account, YouTube or other social media and online platforms. The following are examples of information we may collect from you:

Name, address, home and mobile phone number, email address, username and password, gender, anniversary and birthday;

Credit card number, debit card number and other payment card data for the purpose of processing purchase transactions; and

Demographic and lifestyle information about you.

When you use our website, use our mobile applications or open an email from us, we may automatically collect information about you using tracking technology, including Internet Protocol Address (“IP Address”), a unique device or user identification, system and browser type, the referring address website, the content and domain pages that you access on our website or mobile applications, and the dates and times that you use our website or mobile applications. We use technology, including cookies (a piece of data that is placed on your computer when you visit a website) to automatically collect certain information, as described above, that we then use for system administration and website maintenance, troubleshooting, and to identify you when you open our email or visit our website through your computer or mobile device so we can enhance your online experience and make our advertising more relevant. We may also offer certain features that are only available through the use of this technology.

You can set your browser to accept or reject cookies and to disable other tracking technology. Third-party sites may also provide additional opt-out methods.

Our Privacy Policy does not cover the use of cookies by others including our partners, affiliates, tracking utility company and service providers. We do not have access or control over these cookies. We also may collect information from third-party websites and other online platforms with whom we connect. For example, if you connect to our site via Facebook, Facebook provides us with certain information from your Facebook account. We may also collect similar information from other social media websites and online platforms.

We may also obtain information about you from other sources, including affiliates, advertising partners and public databases. All of the information we collect allows us to better understand the products and services we think may be of interest to you.

 

THIRD-PARTY ADVERTISING

We may use third parties to serve advertisements on other websites. In serving these advertisements, these companies may use cookies and other tracking devices to collect certain information about your visits to other websites (such as browser type, IP address, which page was visited, and time of day). This information may be used to evaluate our online advertising campaigns or to tailor promotions and other marketing messages to you.

Some of these ads are online behavioral advertising and may contain cookies that allow monitoring of your response to our advertisements. Cookies placed by these companies do not collect personal information. We limit companies that place our ads from using information for any purpose other than to assist us in our advertising efforts. If you prefer that our advertising service providers not know which website pages you have viewed, you may find out more at http://www.networkadvertising.org/ about how you can opt out. To learn more about online behavioral advertising, privacy and cookies, visit http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/learn_more.asp.

Please note that if you opt out, you are only opting out of the collection of data through cookies, and you may still see or receive online advertising from HAF that will not be based on your preferences or behavior.

 

HOW DO WE USE AND SHARE YOUR INFORMATION?

HAF does not sell your personal information to third parties. HAF will only use and share your information as described in this policy to:

Create an account for you on our website or mobile applications;

Enroll you in a programs at your request, and to register your program account on our website and mobile application;

Communicate with you about products and services we offer, including sending you emails and text messages, for promotions, special offerings, Gift Cards and other important information;

Provide your information to any company who may purchase some or all of HAF assets in the future;

HAF may combine personal and non-personal information we collect or obtain with other information we obtain from third parties. HAF may also share aggregated information that cannot be used to identify you with our clients and business partners.

 

HOW DO WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION?

We work to protect your information both online and offline by using appropriate technical, administrative and physical procedures to protect personal information from loss, misuse or alteration.

We limit access to personal information to those who have a business need. Employees who violate HAF customer privacy safeguards are subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination.

When we share your information with third-party service providers as described above, we only provide those third parties with the information necessary to perform their service and we require that they protect your information and not use it for any other purpose. We cannot, however, ensure or guarantee the security of any information you send to us and you do so at your own risk. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your passwords and any account information.

 

WHAT CHOICES DO YOU HAVE ABOUT YOUR INFORMATION?

You may choose to:

Stop receiving promotional materials by mail, telephone, text message or email;

Update and correct your personal information;

Request a copy of the information we have collected about you once per year;

Cancel your account or request that we no longer use your information.

You may contact us to make any of the choices listed above by:

Sending an email to us at info@hawaiiagfoundation.org; or localinside@hawaiiagfoundation.org

We will only send text messages to those who have expressly opted in to receiving communications by text message. You may opt out of receiving further text messages by sending a reply text with the word "Stop" or by contacting us by email or mail as described above.

Members who request not to be contacted will not receive offers for savings by mail/email, will be excluded from HAF general mailing lists, will not be automatically entered in contests and sweepstakes, and may not receive other notices. This opt-out does not apply to certain operational communications (for example, confirmation of delivery address or purchases), to the extent permitted by law.

Under rare circumstances, HAF may need to contact some or all users to relay important information about our website. Members are not able to unsubscribe or "opt in/opt out" of these announcements because they may contain very important information regarding their accounts. HAF reserves the right to contact users to correct account errors or to supply important information HAF deems relevant.

When you ask us to delete your personal information, we may need to retain a record of certain personal information to comply with applicable federal, state or local law.
