Privacy Policy

Your online privacy is important to Martian Farms, Inc. (“Martian Farms”). As a requirement for use of our website we obtain certain types of information about our users. The following describes this information, what we do with it, and how to correct or change the information if you would like to do so.

 
SCOPE OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY

This privacy policy applies to the services, website and/or content made available by Martian Farms and its third party service providers and/or partners (collectively the “Service”, “we”, and “us”).  By using the Service you are consenting to collection and use of your information as outlined in this privacy policy, as well as to our Terms of Use.  


INFORMATION COLLECTED 

Martian Farms collects two types of information from users: personal data (such as names and e-mail addresses) (“Personal Data”); and aggregated information (such as ages and gender of users of the Service, how many users log into the Service on a regular basis daily, weekly etc.) (“Aggregated Information”).

Personal Data

Personal Data is collected through the registration process and use of the Service.  Personal Data may include identifying information, such as name and email addresses, employer, phone numbers, home and/or business address, that will be used to generate your user profile.  To process payments and/or shipping of products we collect and use your payment and shipping information.  This can include your name, your address, your telephone number, your email address, your credit or debit card information, and any other relevant information.


Aggregated Information 

Aggregated Information is collected through various methods: it may come from Service registrations, IP addresses, and your interactions with the Service. Aggregated Information may include but not be limited to age, gender, race, household income, and other information.  We collect this information to help us personalize your experience with the Service by tailoring our content to your specific interests, as well as for us to better understand who uses our Service and to improve the Service accordingly. 

An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you’re surfing the web.  We collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration and to provide aggregate data for customization. Martian Farms does not link IP addresses to any personally identifiable information. Although your session on the Service will be logged through your username, this process will serve to track your session information, and collect Aggregated Information. If this Aggregated Information is published or transferred to any other person (other than your employer or sponsor of your use of the Service as applicable), it will be in an anonymous format. Aggregated Information may also include user IP addresses, device types, and other anonymous statistical data involving the use of the Service. 


USE OF DATA 

In connection with the Service, we may collect data related to users, including but not limited to the names, email addresses, demographic information, or other material submitted by users as further described above (collectively the “Service Data”).  All Service Data shall be the sole property of Martian Farms.  Without limiting the foregoing, we may distribute, sell, license and otherwise use Service Data in aggregate form only (so that no user is personally identifiable) for services provided by Martian Farms to its partners, licensors, and other purposes.


We may use your Personal Data to: provide the service or product requested; for billing and shipping purposes; to provide you with information or promotional materials, including information about new features and enhancements, special offers and other events and items of interest; for the development of new products and services; to improve our website; and, for systems administration and troubleshooting purposes. We agree that we will not disclose to third parties (other than your employer if you are accessing the Service through your employer) the following information: user names, user email addresses, physical addresses, without your consent.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, we cooperate with government and law enforcement officials to enforce and comply with the law. We may therefore disclose personal information, usage data, message data, and any other information about you, if we reasonably deem that it is necessary to: (a) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process (such as a subpoena or court order), or enforceable governmental request; (b) enforce the Terms of Use, including investigation of potential violations thereof; (c) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues; or (d) protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of Martian Farms, its users or the public, as required or permitted by law.

As time passes, Martian Farms may be sold along with its assets, or other transactions may occur in which user data (including but not limited to Personal Data) is one of the business assets transferred. In such a case, the user data which we have gathered may be one of the business assets we transfer.

USE OF COOKIES

The Service does use cookies in a limited manner. A cookie is a small data file that most major websites write to your hard drive for record-keeping purposes when you visit them. Cookies allow measurement of activity in connection with the Service and to improve your user experience, for example, by remembering your passwords and viewing preferences, thus allowing you to interact with the Service without re-registering.  


These cookies are not created or used to collect any information (aggregate or personal) about you at any time.  You may occasionally get cookies from other sites, which is standard in the online world. Martian Farms does not control these cookies, and these cookies are not subject to our privacy policies. 

You do not have to accept cookies to use the Martian Farms Service, however, you may not be able to use certain features or access certain areas if you do not accept cookies.  Although most browsers are initially set to accept cookies, you may reset your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie or to reject cookies generally.

SECURITY

The Service has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control.  However, data transmission over the Internet or wireless networks cannot be guaranteed to be completely secure.  Although we are committed to safeguarding your privacy and security, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.  We urge you to keep any password that you establish with us in a safe place and not to divulge it to anyone.  Also, to prevent others from accessing your account (especially if you are using your device or computer in a public place) please log off your account and close your browser window when you have finished visiting the Service.

LINKS TO OTHER SITES

The Service may contain links to other sites, and those sites may not follow the same privacy policies as Martian Farms. For instance, if you click on a hyperlink on the Martian Farms website, this may take you away from www.martianfarms.co and to an entirely different site.  This can include links from advertisers, content providers, and others who may use the Martian Farms logo, brand, and or style as a result of a partnership arrangement. These sites may send their own cookies or other tracking technologies to you, and may collect and use data in ways that we would not. Please note that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of third party websites. We encourage you to be aware of this when you leave the Service and to read the privacy policies of every website or application that collects personally identifiable information from you. The Privacy Policy applies only to the Service.

CHILDREN’S PRIVACY

We are committed to protecting the privacy of children. This Service is intended for users over the age of 13.  We do not knowingly collect or store any personal information about children under the age of 13.

CHANGES TO THIS POLICY

We retain the right to amend this privacy policy.  If we decide to make an important change to our privacy policy, we will post a notification and link on our website so that you can review the updated policy.
