Privacy Policy

Van den Berg – ProSeeds values the privacy of individuals who visit the web sites which are operated throughout the world by Van Den Berg - ProSeeds or its subsidiaries and adheres to the privacy standards which have been adopted by the countries in which Van Den Berg - ProSeeds companies operate. This statement sets forth the important information which individuals who visit these sites need to know about how Van Den Berg - ProSeeds companies collect and use personal information from web site visitors.

In this Privacy Policy, "Van Den Berg - ProSeeds" refers to Van Den Berg - ProSeeds Company and its subsidiaries and affiliates, including the business unit of Van Den Berg - ProSeeds that operates the web site on which this Privacy Policy is found.

Please read this policy carefully. By visiting a Van Den Berg - ProSeeds web site and using the services provided on that site, you are indicating your agreement to Van Den Berg - ProSeeds'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 each country in which Van Den Berg - ProSeeds operates and from which personally identifiable information is collected. To the extent the laws of a country may prohibit Van Den Berg - ProSeeds from using and sharing personal information in a way described in this Policy, the Policy and Van Den Berg - ProSeeds' practices shall be deemed modified to be consistent with such local laws.

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

Collection of Information
Van Den Berg - ProSeeds web sites collect 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:

  • Some sites 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, some sites permit users to supply an e-mail address to sign up for Van Den Berg - ProSeeds newsletters. Other sites may include feedback or comment forms whereby users can submit questions or comments to Van Den Berg - ProSeeds. (In this Policy, the foregoing information is referred to as "User Information.")
  • Some sites may permit users to enter into transactions with Van Den Berg - ProSeeds or to take advantage of services provided by Van Den Berg - ProSeeds to its customers through that site or through its offices around the world. On such sites, users will be required to provide detailed information necessary to enable Van Den Berg - ProSeeds 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 Van Den Berg - ProSeeds can lawfully sell the products requested by the visitor. (In this Policy, the foregoing information is referred to as "Transactional Information.")
  • Some Van Den Berg - ProSeeds web sites may provide chat rooms or discussion forums 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, each site automatically logs information about a visitor from the browser used to access the site (e.g., Internet Explorer, Netscape, 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 Van Den Berg - ProSeeds site. (In this Policy, the foregoing information is referred to as "Visit Information.") None of this Visit Information permits personal identification of the individual user who is accessing the Van Den Berg - ProSeeds site; thus Visit Information is not considered Personal Information in this Policy. Visit Information will be used by Van Den Berg - ProSeeds 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.

Cookies
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. Van Den Berg - ProSeeds's web sites 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 Van Den Berg - ProSeeds 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.

Van Den Berg - ProSeeds' Use of Your Personal Information
Your Personal Information may be used to communicate with you about your use of our sites, to let you know about changes to our services or our site or to provide services to you or to improve our understanding of what visitors want and need to see on the sites. In particular:

  • User Information may be used by Van Den Berg - ProSeeds primarily to enhance the usability and friendliness of the Van Den Berg - ProSeeds web sites and to ensure that the information which is provided is timely and relevant and meets the needs of our visitors. Van Den Berg - ProSeeds may also use the information which visitors voluntarily furnish through these sites to provide information and promotional material to persons who have visited the Van Den Berg - ProSeeds sites and to process specific requests for information which visitors may make. (See "Opting In / Opting Out" below if you do not wish to receive such materials from Van Den Berg - ProSeeds.)
  • Transactional Information will be used by Van Den Berg - ProSeeds to process and complete the transaction for goods or services requested by the visitor.
  • Survey Information will be used in a manner similar to User Information but will be used primarily in aggregate form to provide Van Den Berg - ProSeeds with information on customer needs, product design, market demand, etc.

Also, you should know that your Personal Information, as well as Visit Information collected at a Van Den Berg - ProSeeds site, may be used by Van Den Berg - ProSeeds security personnel if deemed necessary to protect Van Den Berg - ProSeeds from a threat or other perceived security risk and such information may be shared with law enforcement authorities if appropriate.

Sharing and Disclosure of Your Information
Van Den Berg - ProSeeds may share Personal Information with others for a number of purposes:

  • We may provide contact information to our trade partners, advertisers and other interested parties so that they may contact you directly to furnish you information about their products and services. (As used in this Policy, "Trade Partners" means businesses not owned or operated by Van Den Berg - ProSeeds but which provide compatible goods or services which may be desired by or potentially useful for visitors to the Van Den Berg - ProSeeds web sites.) (See "Opting In / Opting Out" below if you do not wish to receive such materials from Trade Partners.)
  • We will provide aggregated data about products and services purchased, visitor interests, demographics and other information collected from our web site to our Trade Partners, advertisers and other interested parties so that they can learn what products and services are most popular to our customers. Aggregated data will be in anonymous group statistical form and not associated with any individual person.
  • We may use a credit card processing company to bill web site visitors for products and services which they request.
  • We may partner with other parties to provide specific services. When the user signs up for these services, we will share names or other contact information that is necessary for the third parties to provide these services. These parties will not be allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.
  • We also may share Personal Information about visitors to our web sites among its corporate affiliates and subsidiary companies for purposes related to the business of those affiliates and subsidiaries.
  • Van Den Berg - ProSeeds may also share Personal Information about web site visitors with third parties under the following circumstances:
  • When you consent to disclosure;
  • To comply with law, court orders, subpoena or legal process;
  • To enforce or apply Van Den Berg - ProSeeds' agreements or protect Van Den Berg - ProSeeds and its rights,
  • By operation of law, when such Personal Information is transferred as a part of sale of assets including the assets represented by this site; or
  • In the event that Van Den Berg - ProSeeds, or substantially all of its assets, are acquired outside of the ordinary course of business, and such Personal Information may be one of the transferred assets.

Transfers of Information
Van Den Berg - ProSeeds operates from its headquarters in Naaldijk, the Netherlands. Personal Information about visitors are held in compliance with the applicable Dutch local law relevant to the source of the information.

When you furnish Personal Information to Van Den Berg - ProSeeds through a Van Den Berg - ProSeeds web site, you are also giving your consent to a cross-border transfer of that information.

Children and Privacy
Van Den Berg - ProSeeds does not knowingly collect information from or about children age 16 and under.

Opting In / Opting Out
Upon registering at any Van Den Berg - ProSeeds web site which collects Personal Information, visitors will be given an opportunity to determine whether they wish to receive promotional materials from Van Den Berg - ProSeeds or from Trade Partners. The manner and method in which a Van Den Berg - ProSeeds site permits users to opt out of receiving such materials will be described on the individual site collecting that Personal Information. If the user would like to "opt out" at a later time, he may do so by following the instructions on the site where the original request was made or the instructions contained in the e-mail messages delivering such materials to him.

Likewise, you may withdraw your consent to the collection or use of your Personal Information at any time by sending an email message to info@vdb-proseeds.com identifying yourself and describing the Personal Information which you believe has been collected through this site.

Correction/Updating of Personal Information
Each site which collects Personal Information will provide users with instructions regarding correcting or updating that Personal Information. Some sites may maintain a user account section where visitors can make corrections themselves; others may provide an email link or contact information to request us to make those changes; generally, user requests for an update of Personal Information will be honoured within a reasonable time after we receive a request. However, no changes to personal information will be permitted where the change would result in incorrect information or would alter a transaction with us already completed.

Retention of Personal Information
Van Den Berg - ProSeeds will periodically delete Personal Information collected from visitors to its web sites if it is no longer needed for any purpose for which the information may be used or disclosed under the terms of this Policy.

Security
Van Den Berg - ProSeeds takes precautions to protect users' information. Our safeguards include technical means and policies and procedures that our staff is trained to follow. In any event in which a Van Den Berg - ProSeeds 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 Van Den Berg - ProSeeds 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 enrolment 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 Van Den Berg - ProSeeds 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. Van Den Berg - ProSeeds employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our customers' information is protected.

Protecting Your Own Privacy
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online - for example on message boards, through email, or in chat areas - 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 Van Den Berg - ProSeeds decides to change its privacy policies and practices, we will post those changes to our Privacy Policy on our web site in advance of the changes taking effect, so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. 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. We will continue to be able to use information in accordance with the Privacy Policy under which the information was collected.

Contacting Van Den Berg - ProSeeds
Each Van Den Berg - ProSeeds web site provides a Contact Us section to facilitate feedback from site visitors. Please use this facility to notify us if you have any questions, concerns or complaints about the manner in which your personal information has been collected or handled by Van Den Berg - ProSeeds, or contact Van Den Berg - ProSeeds' offices in your country.
