At YieldOrganic.com, we know that you care about how your information is gathered, used, and shared. We respect the trust you have instilled in us, and we’re committed to protecting the privacy and security of your personal information. This notice describes our privacy policy. By visiting YieldOrganic.com, you are accepting the collection, use, disclosure and retention,  of your personal information as described in this Privacy Notice. These practices apply to any YieldOrganic site and to any YieldOrganic application, service, or tool (collectively “Services”), regardless of how you access or use any Service, including through your mobile devices.

2. Customer Information YieldOrganic.com Gathers

The information we ask for and gather from customers helps us personalize, process, develop, and continually improve your experience with YieldOrganic.  Here are the types of information we gather:

Information You Give Us: By using our Services and/or registering for an account with us, you are accepting the terms of this Privacy Notice and our User Agreement, and you are consenting to our collection, use, disclosure and retention, of your personal information as described in this Privacy Notice. We receive and store any information you enter into our website or provide us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but  without it, we may not be able to provide you with all of our Services. 

Personal Information: “Personal information” is information that can be associated with a specific person and could be used to identify that specific person whether from that data or from that data and other information that YieldOrganic or CDG, Inc. has or is likely to have access to. We do not consider Personal Information to include information that has been made anonymous or aggregated so that it can no longer be used to identify a specific person, whether in combination with other information or otherwise.

Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. Like many Web sites, we use “cookies” on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor’s hard drive to help us obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses YieldOrganic.com. For example, “cookies” help us identify repeat visitors on YieldOrganic.com, and enables us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance a user’s experience on our site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any Personal Information on our site.

The Help feature on most Web browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-on’s settings or visiting the Web site of its manufacturer. Because cookies allow you to take advantage of some of YieldOrganic.com’s essential Services and features, we recommend that you leave them turned on.

Mobile: When you access YieldOrganic.com by your mobile device, we may receive information about your approximate location and your mobile device. We may use this information to provide you with location-based Services, such as advertising, search results, and other personalized content. Most mobile devices allow you to turn off location services. If you have questions about how to disable your device’s location services, we recommend you contact your mobile service carrier or your device manufacturer.

E-Mail, Telephone, Text Message, and Postal Mail Communications: As we continue to develop our business, we sometimes will use the contact information you have provided to contact you by e-mail, SMS text, telephone, and/or postal mail if you have consented to such contact. We will deliver targeted marketing, service updates, and promotional offers based on your communication preferences. If you do not want to receive contact from YieldOrganic.com through any of these communication platforms, please adjust your communication preferences in your mobile settings. Message and data rates may apply. YieldOrganic.com may also contact you as necessary to enforce our User Agreement, applicable laws, and any agreement we may have with you.

Payment Information: YieldOrganic uses third the party payment processor, Newtek, to process payments for goods sold through the use of our Services. YieldOrganic will not collect, use or retain personal financial information. This information will be used by Newtek. Their privacy agreement can be found at https://www.newtekone.com/privacy-policy/.

7. Sharing Between Members

We cannot guarantee the accuracy, privacy or security of your information once you provide it to a third party, and we encourage you to evaluate the privacy and security policies of your trading partner before entering into a transaction and choosing to share your information. This is true even where the third parties to whom you disclose personal information are bidders, buyers or sellers on our sites.

To facilitate the consummation of a purchase and sale transaction between parties, we may need to share certain information, including Personal Information such as your contact information, with other members, as follows:

  • Once an ad is sold or fulfilled and the Buyer has paid the applicable connection fee, certain information will be shared to the parties to the transaction, by e-mail, including the Buyer’s and Seller’s full name and contact information, in order for the parties to coordinate the pick-up, delivery and payment of the goods purchased.

YieldOrganic is not responsible for arranging the pick-up, delivery and payment for goods. The Buyer and Seller are solely responsible for coordinating the full purchase and sale transaction.
