Privacy Policy

General Privacy Policy effective February 15, 2024: Our goal is to provide you with information, resources, and services relevant and helpful to you, while respecting your right to privacy. In order to demonstrate our commitment to your privacy, we have prepared this statement disclosing the privacy practices for this entire site.

FarmSTAND collects cookies through this website, but we do not automatically collect your personal information – A cookie is information stored on your computer used for record-keeping. Use of cookies helps improve and customize your web performance through various services such as saving your passwords, saving your personal preferences, and ensuring you don’t repeatedly see the same ad. Collecting cookies is widely seen as an industry standard. Our site may use cookies to enhance your experience while using our website, but we do not collect or distribute any personal information not entered by you. In other words, we do not automatically collect any personally identifiable information about you such as name, address, phone number, or email address. However, we do obtain some types of non-personally identifiable information such as the Internet Service Provider you use to connect to the Internet, your browser type, or the type of computer operating system you use (e.g., Macintosh or Windows). The information collected by us is used for the purpose of analyzing our traffic.

It is likely your browser is already set to accept cookies. If you would prefer to not receive cookies, you can alter the configuration of your browser to refuse cookies. If you choose to refuse cookies, though, it is possible some areas of our website will not function properly when you view them.

To find instructions on how to reconfigure your browser, please enter “[Your Browser Name] Block Cookies” into an online search engine. For example, you may search “Google Chrome Block Cookies” on Google.

We log IP addresses – that is, the location of a site visitor’s computer or network on the Internet – only for systems administration and troubleshooting purposes. In other words, our site includes software that lets us track how many people are coming onto our site, and from which search engines or web pages. This lets us know which information is of interest to visitors, and how they found that information. But we do not automatically collect your name or other personal information.

We also use IP addresses in the aggregate to track which pages people visit in order to assess which content people read most frequently, and to improve the quality of the site.

We do not use such data to develop profiles of individual visitors to our web site. There is no personal information collected in our log files. We evaluate site usage by analyzing user information in the aggregate, but this analysis does not identify any individual user.

When you contact us: We maintain some records of individuals who contact us for information via our website in order to contact you later or provide further information in the future. For example, if you send us an email, we may file your note to us, so that we can respond to you. However, we do not provide this information to anyone else unless you give us your permission or unless disclosure is required by law.

When you make purchases: If you provide information to purchase a book, manual, legal information packet, or other materials or merchandise, we use the information that we collect to process payments and shipping. This information is not made available to any third parties except as necessary to process payments or ship products. Your shipping and contact information is kept on file in case you choose to make additional purchases but will not be used in any other way.

When you make a contribution: If you choose to make a charitable contribution to FarmSTAND, we use the information collected from you to process payments. Personal information may be shared with third party service providers (e.g., merchant banks) during this process. We need to share this information in order to process credit card purchases. FarmSTAND collects information about all of our donors so that we can thank you appropriately and track your donations for tax purposes. 

Children’s online privacy protection: We do not collect any information about users’ ages, and do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from individual users under the age of 18 without parental or guardian permission. No form should be filled out by any child without first getting permission by his or her parent or legal guardian. We encourage parents to be with their children on the Internet and to supervise their children when submitting any form of information over the Internet.

While this site contains links to other sites, FarmSTAND is not responsible for the privacy practices of or the content of such sites. Linkage from our site is not intended to imply that we endorse any other group, its site, or its policies or practices.

Remarketing: With your permission, we may use marketing services provided by Google, Facebook, and other third parties to provide users with customized advertising. This remarketing tactic is a common practice in which users will be more likely to see ads for FarmSTAND after they leave our website. However, users will not see more ads in total than they otherwise would see on the web. The aforementioned marketing services providers use cookies as part of their remarketing services. These cookies do not collect identifiable information or give access to your computer or mobile device.

You may opt out of personalized ads by following the instructions listed on the following websites:

“Do Note Track” Signals: Note that your browser settings may allow you to automatically transmit a “Do Not Track” signal to websites and online services you visit. There is no consensus among industry participants as to what “Do Not Track” means in this context. Like many websites and online services, FarmSTAND currently does not alter its practices when it receives a “Do Not Track” signal from a visitor’s browser. To learn more about “Do Not Track,” you may wish to visit
