What Personal Information About Customers Does The Company Gather?

The information we learn from customers helps us personalize and continually improve your experience. Here are the types of information we gather.

·      Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on the Website or give us in any other way.  We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing future visits to the Website for you, improving our business, and communicating with you.

·      Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many web sites, we use "cookies," and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses the Company or advertisements and other content served by or on behalf of the Company on other Web sites. 

·      Mobile: When you download or use apps that may be created by the Company, we may receive information about your location and your mobile device, including a unique identifier for your 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. 

·      E-mail Communications: To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we may receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from the Company if your computer supports such capabilities. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please unsubscribe from our e-mail list.

·      Information from Other Sources: We might receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information. 

How Do You Handle Cookies?

·      Cookies are unique identifiers that we transfer to your device to enable our systems to recognize your device and to provide features such personalized advertisements or content. 

·      The Help feature on most 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.

Does the Company Share the Information It Receives?

Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share customer information only as described below and with subsidiaries the Company controls that either are subject to this Privacy Policy or follow practices at least as protective as those described in this Privacy Policy.

·      Third-Party Service Providers: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.

·      Business Transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy other companies or businesses, or we may be acquired or merged into another business ourselves. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Policy (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise). Also, in unlikely event that the Company or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.

·      Protection of the Company and Others: We release personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our Terms of Use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of the Company, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection. Obviously, however, this does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Policy.

·      With Your Consent: Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.

How Secure Is Information About Me?

We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input.

What About Third-Party Advertisers and Links to Other Websites?

Our Website may include third-party advertising and links to other Web sites. We do not provide any personal information to advertisers or to third-party sites that serve our ads.

What Choices Do I Have?

·      If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, you may unsubscribe to such e-mails or other mail. 

·      The Help feature on most 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.

We also may process personal data on other bases permitted by the GDPR and other applicable laws, such as when the processing is necessary for us to comply with our legal obligations.

Information regarding the transfers of personal data outside of the European Economic Area (EEA):        

Golden Seed, Inc. is headquartered in the United States and our Website is hosted in the United States.  The laws of the United States have not been deemed by the European Commission to provide an adequate level of protection to personal data. When you provide your personal data to us via our Website or by contacting us by e-mail or otherwise, you are providing your personal data directly to the United States.  Before you provide your personal information to us via the Website, we are giving us your explicit consent to the transfer of your personal data to the United States. When you e-mail us, the fact that you have chosen to e-mail us knowing that we are located in the United States will be understood to constitute your express consent to the transfer of the personal data in your e-mail (including your e-mail address) and other data to the United States. Regardless of the differences in United States privacy laws, we safeguard your personal data as described in this Privacy Policy.  

The period for which the personal data will be stored, or the criteria for determining the retention period:

 How long we retain personal data varies according to the type of data in question and the purpose for which it is used.  We delete personal data within a reasonable period after we no longer need to use it for the purpose for which it was collected or for any subsequent purpose that is compatible with the original purpose. This does not affect your right to request that we delete your personal data before the end of its retention period.  We may archive personal data (which means storing it in inactive files) for a certain period prior to its final deletion, as part of our ordinary business continuity procedures.

Your rights to access, correct, restrict or delete your personal data and object to processing:          

You have the right to request access to your personal data, to have your personal data corrected, restricted or deleted, and to object to our processing of your personal data.  Your rights may be subject to various limitations under the GDPR.  If you wish to exercise any of these rights, or if you have any concerns about our processing of your personal data, please contact us. The GDPR’s data portability rights are not relevant to the kinds of processing that we do.

 The right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority:

 You have the right to file a complaint concerning our processing of your personal data with your national (or in some countries, regional) data protection authority. The EU Commission has a list here: http://ec.europa.eu/justice/article-29/structure/data-protection-authorities/index_en.htm
