This statement sets forth the important information which individuals who visit these sites need to know about how BLC Enterprises, Inc.  companies collect and use personal information from web site visitors.

In this Privacy Policy, “BLC Enterprises, Inc. ” refers to BLC Enterprises, Inc. and its subsidiaries and affiliates, including the business unit of Barry Crowe Sales and Service, L.C. and Barry Crowe Seed, L.C..  that operates the web site on which this Privacy Policy is found.

Please read this policy carefully. By visiting BLC Enterprises, Inc.  web site and using the services provided on that site, you are indicating your agreement to BLC Enterprises, Inc. ‘s use of your personal information as set out in this Policy.

This Policy is intended to be in compliance with the applicable privacy laws and regulations of the U.S. in which BLC Enterprises, Inc. operates and from which personally identifiable information is collected. To the extent the laws of a country may prohibit BLC Enterprises, Inc.  from using and sharing personal information in a way described in this Policy and BLC Enterprises, Inc. ‘s practices shall be deemed modified to be consistent with such local laws.

What Does This Policy Cover?
This Privacy Policy applies to BLC Enterprises, Inc.  web sites and information collected by and through those web sites. It does not apply to any other BLC Enterprises, Inc.  services or dealings with users or customers and does not apply to third-party sites which may be linked to the BLC Enterprises, Inc.  site.

Collection of Information
BLC Enterprises, Inc.  web site collects personally identifiable information only from individuals who voluntarily choose to provide the information through the web site. (In this Policy the foregoing information is referred to as “Personal Information.”) That Personal Information may be collected in several different ways:

  • This site may permit users to request a “user i.d.” and password which can be used on future visits to the site. Visitors to the site may be asked to supply their name, geographic location and some information about their business or occupation or other reason for interest in the site. In addition, this site permits users to supply an e-mail address to sign up for BLC Enterprises, Inc. newsletters, feedback or comment forms whereby users can submit questions or comments to BLC Enterprises, Inc. . (In this Policy, the foregoing information is referred to as “User Information.”)
  • This site permits users to enter into transactions with BLC Enterprises, Inc. or to take advantage of services provided by BLC Enterprises, Inc.  to its customers through the site or through its offices in the U.S.. On this site, users will be required to provide detailed information necessary to enable BLC Enterprises, Inc.  to process the transaction and to provide the goods or services requested by the visitor. Visitors may be requested to provide financial information, including credit card or bank information, in connection with such transactions. Visitors may also be asked to provide information about the pesticide and other licenses which they hold in order to determine whether BLC Enterprises, Inc.  can lawfully sell the products requested by the visitor. (In this Policy, the foregoing information is referred to as “Transactional Information.”)
  • This BLC Enterprises, Inc. web site may provide comment or feedback forms where users may register and post messages or comments. Participation in such discussion areas is entirely voluntary. No information which a user posts in such an area is private, inasmuch as it will be accessible to other users of the same area. Thus, any Personal Information which a user chooses to post in such an area will not be subject to this Privacy Policy.
  • From time-to-time our site may request additional information from users by means of surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose whatever additional information may be requested. Information requested through surveys and contests may include additional demographic information. (In this Policy, the foregoing information is referred to as “Survey Information.”)

In addition to the foregoing Personal Information, this site automatically logs information about a visitor from the browser used to access the site (e.g., Internet Explorer, etc.). This includes information about the I.P. address of the visitor, the pages in the site which are visited from that address and the web site which the user visited just prior to the BLC Enterprises, Inc.  site. (In this Policy, the foregoing information is referred to as “Visit Information.”) While some jurisdictions consider IP addresses to be personal information, none of this Visit Information is used by BLC Enterprises, Inc.  for direct or indirect identification of the individual user who is accessing the BLC Enterprises, Inc.  site. Visit Information will be used by BLC Enterprises, Inc.  to diagnose problems with its web servers, to administer, design and construct its web sites, to track visitor movements on the web sites and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use only.

A cookie is a small data file that web sites commonly write to the site visitor’s hard drive when a site is visited. A cookie file contains information that can identify a return visitor each time he or she visits our site. The data is encrypted for added security. BLC Enterprises, Inc. ‘s web site may use cookies as a way to measure activity and traffic patterns on the site in order to continually improve the visitor’s experience. Cookies also provide visitors the convenience of not having to log in a password more than once on a BLC Enterprises, Inc.  site, thereby saving the visitor time while on our site.

A browser can be set to warn the users before accepting cookies. Users can choose to refuse cookies by turning them off in the browser. Users do not need to have cookies turned on to visit our web site, but will need them to use certain customizable features of our web site such as automatically displaying local weather and crop forecasts, accessing certain areas of our web site, and transacting business on our web site.

While we take all reasonable steps to protect the privacy of our website visitors, we cannot promise that the current limitations of our online applications programming will address every browser setting or honor every personal browser preference. In particular, we have not implemented the necessary program changes to honor “Do Not Track” or “DNT” browser signals. As our online applications programming is refined, we will take all reasonable steps to honor such requests in the future. Please return to this privacy policy for further updates on this topic.

Further, our business partners may implement technologies that allow for the collection of personally identifiable information over time and across websites. We recommend that you review each privacy policy posted on the websites that you visit to better understand privacy practices on those websites.

In any event in which a BLC Enterprises, Inc.  web site is hosted by a third party, these safeguards shall also apply. If as a registered user you receive a password, you should keep it confidential because it is the key to access to the information held by BLC Enterprises, Inc.  about you. If you leave your computer’s internet browser running and someone else uses your computer, they will be able to access your account; thus, if your computer is not physically secure remember to shut down your browser before you leave it.

We try to reduce the likelihood of accidental disclosures and unintended access and modification of account information, but it is impossible to eliminate this possibility completely. When users submit sensitive information via the website, their information is protected both on-line and off-line.

When an enrollment or order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number) that information is encrypted and is protected with the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.

While BLC Enterprises, Inc.  uses SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, it also takes steps to protect user-information off-line. All of our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices.

Protecting Your Own Privacy
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online – for example on comments or through email – that information can be collected and used by others. Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and/or any account information.

Changes to Policy

If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner.
