How do we collect and use information?
Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide and improve our Services, to administer your use of our Services (including your Account, if you are an Account holder), and to enable you to enjoy and easily navigate our Services.
Account Information. If you create an Account, we’ll collect certain information that can be used to identify you, such as your name, email address, postal address and phone number (“Personally Identifiable Information” or “PII”). If you create an Account using your login credentials from one of your Social Networking Site (“SNS”) Accounts, we’ll be able to access and collect your name and email address and other PII that your privacy settings on the SNS Account permit us to access. We may also collect certain information that is not PII because it cannot be used by itself to identify you, such as your gender, date of birth and zip code.
Order Information. If you place an order for any Native State Foods products via the Services, our secure order form requests contact, shipping, billing and financial information, such as your credit card numbers. Contact information from the order form, including email address, name, billing and shipping address, and phone number, is used to process your order and ship the product(s) that you ordered from us to you and to provide customer services to you. We may also use your contact information to send information about our Services, marketing materials, and gifts to you. Your credit card information is transmitted securely to our third- party processing provider in compliance with Payment Card Industry standards.
Information Related to Use of the Services. Our servers automatically record certain information about how a person uses our Services (we refer to this information as “Log Data”), including both Account holders and non-Account holders (either, a “User”). Log Data may include information such as a user’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type, operating system, the web page that a user was visiting before accessing our Services, the pages or features of our Services to which a user browsed and the time spent on those pages or features, search terms, the links on our Services that a user clicked on and other statistics. We use Log Data to administer the Services and we analyze (and may engage third parties to analyze) Log Data to improve, customize and enhance our Services by expanding their features and functionality and tailoring them to our Users’ needs and preferences. We may use a person’s IP address to fight spam, malware and identity theft. We also use the IP Address to generate aggregate, non-identifying information about how our Services are used.
From time to time we may use your name, mailing address or email address to send you an offer for Native State Foods products that we believe may be of interest to you. From time to time, you may enter into special offers or activities through our Services, such as sweepstakes, surveys, or discounts. Information that you provide us for any specific offers or activities through our Services will be used for the limited purpose for which the information is given and so that we can send information about our Services, marketing materials, and gifts to you.
What Information Do We Share With Third Parties?
We will not share any PII that we have collected from you except as described below:
Information Shared with Our Service Providers. We may engage third party service providers to work with us to administer and provide the Services. These third-party service providers have access to your PII only for the purpose of performing services on our behalf and are expressly obligated not to disclose or use your PII for any other purpose.
Information Shared with Third Parties. We may share aggregated information and non-identifying information with third parties for industry analysis, demographic profiling and other similar purposes.
Information Disclosed in Connection with Business Transactions. Information that we collect from our users, including PII, is considered to be a business asset. As a result, if we go out of business or enter bankruptcy or if we are acquired as a result of a transaction such as a merger, acquisition or asset sale, your PII may be disclosed or transferred to the third-party acquirer in connection with the transaction.
Information Disclosed for Our Protection and the Protection of Others. It is our policy to protect you from having your privacy violated through abuse of the legal systems, whether by individuals, entities or government, and to contest claims that we believe to be invalid under applicable law. However, it is also our policy to cooperate with government and law enforcement officials and private parties. Accordingly, we reserve the right to disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary: (i) to satisfy or comply with any applicable law, regulation or legal process or to respond to lawful requests, including subpoenas, warrants or court orders; (ii) to protect our property, rights and safety and the rights, property and safety of third parties or the public in general; and (iii) to prevent or stop activity we consider to be illegal, unethical or legally actionable activity.
Information We Disclose With Your Consent or at Your Request. We will share your PII with third-party sites or platforms, such as social networking sites, if you have expressly consented to us doing so.
The Security of Your Information
We take reasonable measures to protect the information that we collect from or about you (including your PII) from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Please be aware, however, that no method of transmitting information over the Internet or storing information is completely secure. Accordingly, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of any information.

Information You Post
All information that you share about yourself, whether PII or not, in a public open forum – such as on a SNS or directly on our site – will be considered public information for the purposes of this policy. If you do not want this information public, please do not post it.
Modifying Your Information
You can access and modify the PII you provide to us via the Services by signing in and accessing “My Account”. If you want us to delete your PII, please contact us at 1-866-647-2291 or firstname.lastname@example.org with your request. We’ll take steps to delete your information as soon as is practicable, but some information may remain in archived/backup copies for our records or as otherwise required by law. You can adjust your communication preferences at any time, including opting out of promotional mailings, from your Account.
