This privacy statement also tells you what choices you have about providing personally identifiable information and how to access, change, or delete any personally identifiable information that we may have already collected.

Such third-party web sites may have different or no privacy policies relating to their collection and use, if any, of personally identifiable information.
 
Personally Identifiable Information We Collect Online
 
By “personally identifiable information,” we mean information that identifies you, enables us to contact you, or that, if combined with other information, enables us to identify or contact you. This can include, for example, your name, email and physical addresses, telephone numbers, or credit card number. 
 
If you are simply perusing an FJM Web Site and have not registered at any of our Web Sites, we do not ask you to provide any personally identifiable information although, as described below, our site may set a “cookie” on your computer. To register for or to use our FJM Web Site services, however, you must provide us with your first and last name, postal address (including state, postal code and country), and email address. If you do not provide this information, you will not be able to register or use features of FJM Web Sites that require you to provide that information. You may also provide other personally identifiable information, such as a telephone number, although our Web Sites normally do not require you to do so.
 
On certain pages within our FJM Web Sites, you are invited to order products and services. In order to complete an online order, you must provide information such as your name, address (including street name or post office box, city, state, and postal code), credit card number, and email address. Your credit card information is collected by a service provider with which FJM contracts to process your payment; FJM does not collect or retain credit card information. If you prefer not to provide such information online, but are still interested in receiving FJM Web Site products and services, you may call us at: 800-331-9310.
 
Mobile Device IDs and Location-Based Information
 
Certain mobile devices, including smart phones and tablet devices, contain unique device IDs that can be used to identify their physical location. Some mobile device IDs are persistent, while others may be resettable by accessing the device’s privacy settings. Mobile devices also typically transmit caller ID data (which may include a phone number) when used to transmit a telephone call or text message. When you use mobile devices to access our Services, we may collect and transmit unique device IDs, as well as other information about your device, including without limitation, your wireless carrier, the make, model, operating system, capacity and settings of your device, the names, package IDs and versions of other software you have downloaded to your device and information about how you interact with and navigate within our Service. With your consent, we or our authorized service providers and partners also may use precise geolocation technology such as GPS or Wi-Fi triangulation or mobile Bluetooth beacon technology to collect information about the exact location of your mobile device. Precise location information may be collected both while you are using one of our mobile applications and continuously over time while our apps are not in use but are running in the background of your device. This information may be used for the purposes described below in "Our Use of Your Personally Identifiable Information," including to tailor special offers and advertising to your interests, both in our Services, and in third-party marketing channels. You can withdraw your consent to the further collection and use of your precise device location data through any of our mobile apps by accessing your device’s privacy settings.
 
Surveys, Sweepstakes and Contests
 
From time to time our FJM Web Sites may request information from users via surveys, sweepstakes, or contests. Information requested may include contact and demographic information. Participation in these surveys, sweepstakes or contests is completely voluntary. You have the choice whether or not to disclose any information in response to survey or contest questions. Contact and demographic information may be used by FJM Web Sites to notify the winners and award prizes of any such surveys, sweepstakes, or contests, to enhance your use of our Web Sites, and to improve our understanding of our users and with our service providers, select third-party advertisers and other companies involved in the delivery of the advertising you see online and offline.
 
We Use "Cookies" To Enhance Your Use of FJM Web Sites
 
"Cookies" are small data files stored on your computer's hard drive. FJM Web Sites use “cookies” to help provide you with a personalized and enhanced online experience. By assigning and storing a random cookie on your hard drive, we are able to offer you personalized collection, filtering, and delivery of information that we feel will be of the greatest interest and value to you. This includes not only our site's original content, but also advertisements selected for you based on your content preferences and how you use our site. Please note that while cookies can be used to identify a particular computer hard drive, by themselves they do not reveal or disclose the identity of an individual user. However, if subsequently you choose to provide your personally identifiable information to us, the cookie on your computer will be linked to that information and thereby become identifiable to you.
 
If you never provide us with personally identifiable information, the cookie that an FJM Web Site sets on your computer will expire after a period of time. If you do provide such information, the cookie will remain on your computer as long as you are registered so that we can tailor our services for you.
 
If you wish to maintain complete anonymity, you may choose to reject all cookies and not to provide any personally identifiable information. If you choose to reject cookies from FJM Web Sites, you may still peruse our site although certain functions and applications may not work as a result, and you will not benefit from the personalized and enhanced services discussed throughout this policy.
 
Our Use of Your Personally Identifiable Information
 
Our primary use of the personally identifiable information that you provide to us is to provide you with the products, services, and information that you request. We may also contact you regarding products, services, and information we believe you would find useful. We may also supplement the information you provide with other information from our corporate affiliates and other sources.  FJM Web Sites may store and use your personal information for as long as reasonably needed for our business purposes. 
 
At times, we may send you emails containing promotional material on behalf of other companies or organizations that have a product or service we believe may be of interest to you. You may direct us not to send you such emails as explained in the “Choice” section below. FJM may share demographic information about our users with other companies, but we do not share our email lists to other companies.
 
From time to time, we may provide your postal mailing address that you have given us to other companies or businesses that may wish to mail advertising or promotional material to you. You can request that we not provide your postal address to other companies by calling us at 800-331-9310.
 
Additionally, we may use cookies to generate composite or aggregate tracking information for traffic accounting and content analysis, which we may share with other companies for the purpose of documenting site use. Such aggregated statistical information is not directly linked to any personally identifiable information and cannot be used to identify you or any individual user of our Web Sites.
 
FJM Web Sites are operated in the United States. Please be aware that any information you provide to us will be transferred to the United States if you are not already in the United States. By using FJM Web Sites and/or providing us with your personal information through our Web Sites, you consent to this transfer of information.
 
Collections & Use of Gmail Data
 
At FJM, we may receive personal data about you when you/others import or sync Gmail Contact with our Services or send invitation messages using our Services. While we use Google’s Gmail API for contact-list retrieval, we only have read-only access to this service and we do not
 
  1. Store any data present in your contact list
  2. Send out any emails from your Google account without your consent
  3. Make any changes to your Google account.
Choice
 
 FJM Web Sites give you the option to not submit any personally identifiable information to us (although if you choose not to you would be unable to register as a user or use features of the FJM Web Sites that require you to provide that information). Alternatively, you may choose to submit only those fields of data absolutely required for registration on our Web Sites.
 
We allow selected third-party companies to set cookies or similar technologies on our Web Sites. Some of these companies provide advertising services to us and to you; others help us understand how our site is used. FJM Web Sites do not provide your contact information to those companies. To learn more about those cookies, you must visit the web sites of the companies that place them on our Web Sites.
 
If you prefer not to receive email marketing communications from us, we provide a mechanism for opting out of this service by clicking the “Preferences” or “Unsubscribe" links in the footers of any of our email communications, by vising our “Newsletters” link accessible from our Web Sites and clicking through to the “Preferences Center” and checking the box that says “Please unsubscribe me from ALL my current newsletter subscriptions”, or by contacting us directly by email or phone and asking to be removed from our email list.  Additionally, each email message that we send you will clearly state how you may remove your name from the email list and from receiving future emails. Please note that you will not be able to opt out with regard to the collection and disclosure of aggregate information. Such aggregate information reflects the combined statistical analysis of various aspects of site usage and cannot specifically be linked or connected with any of your personal identifiable information.
 
As described above, you may choose to ask that we not send you promotional or advertising email messages on behalf of third-parties. Accordingly, you may "opt out" of such email messages at any time by sending a message to: aginfo@farmjournal.com directing us not to share such information for marketing purposes.
 
Do Not Track
 
Some browsers send so-called “Do Not Track” signals to our Web Sites. FJM Web Sites currently do not honor such indications due to a lack of industry consensus as to how such signals should be handled. 
 
Our Retention of Your Personally Identifiable Information and Data
 
Once you have registered with an FJM Web Site, we will store and maintain the personally identifiable information you have provided to us for so long as you remain a registered user and have not directed us otherwise, or for so long as we are required by law to retain such information. Our retention of your data allows us to continue to provide you with highly personalized services.
 
How We Protect Your Information
 
FJM Web Sites take commercially reasonable precautions to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure to your personally identifiable information, to maintain data and information accuracy, and to facilitate the appropriate use of information. We have implemented a variety of encryption and security technologies and procedures to protect information stored in our computer systems from unauthorized access. We use physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to protect the personally identifiable information we collect online. We also maintain procedural safeguards that restrict access to personally identifiable information to employees (or people working on our behalf and under confidentiality agreements) who need to know such information in order to provide the products and services that you request. Further, encryption technology and tools are used when collecting or transferring sensitive information such as credit card numbers. Additional database content is protected either by means of a two-key encryption algorithm Secure Socket Level ("SSL") encryption, and/or behind a firewall using security software.
 
If you have any questions about the security at FJM Web Sites, please contact us by email at:feedback@agweb.com
