USE OF NON-PERSONAL DATA

Non-Personal Data may also be automatically collected about a User utilizing the Website.  For example, Four Winds Farm uses technology to automatically collect Non-Personal Data about the use of Website.  This technology is used to track how many Users access Website, the date and time of their visits, the length of their stays, and which pages they view.  Four Winds Farm may also use technology to determine which web browsers Users use and the address from which they accessed the Website.  The information collected using this technology does not identify any User personally and is thus all Non-Personal Data that simply enables Four Winds Farm to compile statistics about Users and their use of the Website and related services.  Four Winds Farm uses this Non-Personal Data and may share it with third parties to improve the content and functionality of the Website, to better understand our customers and markets, and to improve our products and services.

Four Winds Farm may store certain information from a User’s web browser using “cookies” and Google Analytics technology  A cookie is a piece of data stored on the User’s computer tied to information about the User and their use of the Website.  Four Winds Farm may use session-ID cookies to confirm that registered Users are logged in.  These cookies would terminate once the User closes the web browser.  Four Winds Farm may also use persistent cookies that store certain Personal Data already provided to Four Winds Farm to make it easier for a User to log back into the Website.  Cookies are used as a convenience feature for the User and to allow Four Winds Farm to better understand how Users are accessing and using the Website.  A User can remove or block cookies using the settings in the User’s web browser if a user wants to disable such functions, but such action may impair the full functionality of the Website.

DO NOT TRACK SIGNALS  

The Website tracks Users over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising. However, you can adjust the settings of your browser to send a “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) signal so the Website will not track you over time and across third party websites.  Additionally, some third-party websites keep track of browsing activities when they serve Users content, which enables them to tailor what they present to different users.  If a User is visiting such websites, a browser may allow Users to set the DNT signal on that browser so that third parties (particularly advertisers) know that the User does not want to be tracked.

HACKING AND SECURITY

Four Winds Farm uses industry standard security measures to protect Users’ Personal Data.  While such security measures provide reasonable protections against unauthorized access, they provide no guarantee that Personal Data will not be compromised.  HACKING AND UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS OCCURS AND FOUR WINDS FARM PROVIDES NO GUARANTEE THAT PERSONAL DATA WILL NOT BE STOLEN OR MISUSED BY THIRD-PARTIES.

Whenever a website collects sensitive information (such as confidential business information), a User should confirm that the information is encrypted and transmitted in a secure way.  One way that a User may do so is by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of the web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.

LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES

The Website may contain web links to third-party websites.  These websites are not under Four Winds Farm’s control.  Four Winds Farm makes no representations or warranties as to the accuracy and information on or from other websites.  Please be advised that the privacy policy and security policy of third-party linked websites are not that of Four Winds Farm.
