2. Collection and Use of Personal Information
2.1 Data Voluntarily Provided to Coastal Cultivars
Depending on how you interact with Coastal Cultivars, there are parts of the Services where you may be asked to provide Coastal Cultivars with Personal Information or other data, or such data may be collected from you in an automated manner as described in the section titled “Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies,” below. For example, Personal Information such as your name, age, gender, demographic information, mailing/shipping address, email address, phone number, credit/debit card or other payment information, username and password or other account access information, and any other Personal Information or other data you voluntarily provide through the Services may be collected from you when you:

complete and submit your answers to Coastal Cultivars’ surveys and questionnaires; and/or

location information, contacts, app inventory or sensor data
otherwise provide any information to us voluntarily through the Services.
Coastal Cultivars generally will not ask you to provide any sensitive data, such as religious beliefs, citizenship status, sexual orientation, or race or ethnicity, but you may be able to voluntarily provide such information when interacting with our Services. To the extent you include any sensitive data in communications you voluntarily provide to us through the Services, you hereby acknowledge and agree that such data may be processed by Coastal Cultivars as necessary to provide the Services in accordance with your instructions.
2.2 Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies
Coastal Cultivars or its service providers also may automatically collect certain data as you use the Services and navigate elsewhere online, such as your IP address and other data about your internet connection, your operating system, browser type, and other devices or technology you use to access the Sites or other Services, as well as usage data about your interaction with our Services. This automatically collected data generally does not identify any specific individual, but to the extent such data is reasonably capable of being combined with other information and associated with you or another person, we will treat such data as Personal Information.
The automatic collection of data described above is accomplished through the use of files and other technology which are transmitted to your computer or device as you browse our Services and other locations online. This technology is commonly referred to as “cookies.” You may be able to disable cookies by consulting your browser and/or computer settings. Please note that any disabling of cookies could affect how the Sites and other Services appear or operate for you.
Certain third parties also may directly collect certain Personal Information and other data from you when you use certain parts of the Sites or other Services. For example, Coastal Cultivars may use third-party analytics service providers which could automatically collect certain Personal Information and other data about you through the Services including, but not limited to, your IP address and/or other online identifiers. Third-party cookies or other tracking technology may be used through this process to track data such as the times you most frequently use the Services, what devices you use to access the Services, what parts of the Services you visit and the links you use to get there.
These data analytics vendors and other technology service providers may use such information to track how you use the Services, measure the performance of the Services, improve features on the Services, and provide Coastal Cultivars with tools that satisfy overall operating needs for the Services. Coastal Cultivars may then use feedback from these service providers to improve the Services and our interactions with you.
2.3 How and Why Coastal Cultivars Uses the Information You Provide
Coastal Cultivars only uses your Personal Information when we have a proper reason for doing so, such as to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation, to process orders, transactions or otherwise in performance of a contract, or for our legitimate interests in providing the Services. For example, Coastal Cultivars may use your Personal Information and other data to:
process any other orders placed through the Services;
maintain proper business records and other relevant records;
respond to your questions, comments or other messages;
send you promotional content or other online communications about products or services in which you may be interested;
contact you if there are issues with any content or information you may have uploaded or posted through the Services;
provide ongoing technical support related to the Services;
communicate with you regarding additional uses of your Personal Information beyond the scope of this list or the Policy;
improve the content and general administration of the Services;
perform internal operations related to the Services (e.g., fraud prevention);
troubleshoot software issues and operational problems with the Services;
conduct data analysis and testing; and/or
monitor the usage of the Services.
By providing to Coastal Cultivars the Personal Information and other data referenced above, you agree that Coastal Cultivars may use the Personal Information and other data in accordance with the terms of this Policy.
3. Sharing of Information
Coastal Cultivars will disclose Personal Information to third parties as necessary to fulfill the business purposes for which the Personal Information was collected, as otherwise set forth below, or with the express consent of the user. Except as noted in this Policy, Coastal Cultivars does not sell or share your Personal Information with any person or entity outside of Coastal Cultivars.
Coastal Cultivars may share certain portions of Personal Information with its vendors in order to make the Services function properly. This may include sharing Personal Information and other data with email marketing providers to send you communications related to our Services.
Personal Information may be made available to government institutions and/or public authorities if disclosure is required by law, or if such Personal Information is required to be produced pursuant to any applicable legal process. Coastal Cultivars also may share Personal Information or other data in order to avoid imminent physical harm to any person or harm to any Coastal Cultivars property.
Personal Information received or held by Coastal Cultivars may be transferred to any entity that succeeds to the assets or business of Coastal Cultivars by any merger, consolidation, combination, reorganization, sale of assets or in connection with any transfer as part of any insolvency or bankruptcy proceeding. In such case, Coastal Cultivars will make reasonable efforts to cause any successor to agree to abide by the terms of this Policy.
We also may disclose your Personal Information to other service providers to carry out our obligations and enforce our rights arising from any contracts related to your use of the Services, or as otherwise described to you at or before the point when we collect your Personal Information.
Other than what is referenced above, the Personal Information collected from you is not shared with nor sold to any person or entity outside of Coastal Cultivars.
4. Your Rights and Choices
Depending on where you reside, you may be able to exercise certain rights with respect to Personal Information you provided to Coastal Cultivars, or that Coastal Cultivars may have collected about you, such as rights to:
Confirm whether Coastal Cultivars has collected and is processing your Personal Information and, if so, you may have a right to access such data;
Correct any inaccuracies about your Personal Information;
Request the deletion or erasure of Personal Information you provided to Coastal Cultivars or that we have otherwise collected about you;
Obtain a copy of Personal Information Coastal Cultivars maintains about you in a portable and readily usable format, if technically feasible, that would allow you to transfer such Personal Information to another service or provider, where the applicable processing is carried out by automated means;
Be protected from adverse treatment by Coastal Cultivars with respect to the prices and quality of our Services and any products offered on or through our Services because you exercised certain rights regarding the collection, use and sharing of your Personal Information; and
Opt-out of any processing of your Personal Information for the purposes of, as applicable, (1) targeted advertising based on your browsing behavior before and after you visit or use the Services, (2) any sale of your Personal Information, if applicable, or (3) any profiling of you based on collected Personal Information in a way that would produce legal ramifications or similarly significant real-world effects on you.
If you would like to request the ability to access, review, edit, or delete any Personal Information that Coastal Cultivars may have collected about you, opt-out of receiving further information from Coastal Cultivars, limit what we share, or if you otherwise wish to exercise available privacy rights or ask Coastal Cultivars to cease using your Personal Information in the manners specified in this Policy (subject to any applicable legal exceptions), please contact us at email@example.com
Any removal of Personal Information or other data by Coastal Cultivars does not ensure or guarantee complete or comprehensive removal in all places. The information may have been shared or reposted by other parties, or federal or state law may require maintenance of the content or information. Coastal Cultivars will do its best to accommodate any deletion request you make, but Coastal Cultivars cannot guarantee it can remove all Personal Information from the specified uses. Therefore, please be as specific as possible in your request. If the request relates to information that Coastal Cultivars needs to make the Services function properly for you, you may not be able to use the Services properly moving forward.
Coastal Cultivars reserves the right to maintain proper business records with Personal Information as required by law or for other legitimate business purposes to the extent permitted by law, even if such records contain your Personal Information.
If you would like to opt-out of receiving promotional emails from Coastal Cultivars, please follow the opt-out instructions at the bottom of the email or send Coastal Cultivars a detailed email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Coastal Cultivars may refuse any request made regarding collected Personal Information if it is unable to verify the identity of the person making the request or if it cannot authenticate the legitimacy of the request using commercially reasonable efforts. Under such circumstances, Coastal Cultivars may follow up with you for additional information as reasonably necessary to authenticate your request. Subject to applicable legal requirements, if Coastal Cultivars refuses to act on a request you make based on the rights listed at the beginning of this section, you may have a right to submit an appeal by contacting us using the same method as when you made the initial request. In the event Coastal Cultivars must deny your appeal, we will provide a way for you to forward your complaint to the appropriate legal authorities.
Under certain circumstances, you may grant an authorized agent written permission to submit requests regarding your Personal Information, but we may deny authorized agent requests if we are unable to verify your identity directly as the subject of the Personal Information at issue.
Coastal Cultivars will only use Personal Information provided in a verifiable request related to Personal Information in order to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request.
Some browsers have a ”do not track” feature that lets you tell websites that you do not want to have your online activities tracked. As referenced above, Coastal Cultivars does not sell any Personal Information collected through the Services, and the Sites are not currently configured to respond to “do not track” or similar automated privacy controls. As noted previously in this Policy, it is possible that third parties may collect or receive information through the Services. Since it is possible that some of these third parties may respond differently than Coastal Cultivars to “do not track” requests, you should consult the applicable privacy policies of those third parties for that information.
To learn more about other ways to possibly opt-out of certain kinds of tracking that occur when you browse the internet and lead to targeted advertising, visit the Network Advertising Initiative website and the Digital Advertising Alliance website. Options you select are browser- and device-specific, and there is no guarantee that these industry-provided opt-out tools will prevent all targeted advertising.
5. Data Security and Retention
Coastal Cultivars has implemented, uses and maintains industry standard encryption for the Sites and other administrative, technical, and physical data security measures that are reasonably designed to help protect collected Personal Information from loss, unauthorized access or disclosure, both in storage/rest and in transmission.
While Coastal Cultivars takes the issue of protecting your Personal Information seriously, you should exercise discretion in what information you disclose or transmit through the Services. Coastal Cultivars cannot guarantee that information sent online is fully secure, and therefore the transmitted information may be intercepted by others before it reaches Coastal Cultivars. If you are concerned about sending information to Coastal Cultivars over the internet, please send the information by mail or call us to make other arrangements. Coastal Cultivars is not responsible for the security of information sent online.
Coastal Cultivars retains collected information for a reasonable amount of time in order to fulfill the stated purpose for why the information was collected. Coastal Cultivars also will retain collected information connected to business records for periods of time required by law. If Coastal Cultivars determines that collected information is no longer needed, it will delete such information. Coastal Cultivars’ collection times will be consistent with applicable law.
6. Age Requirements
The Services are intended for individuals 21 years of age and older located in the United States.
The Services are not directed at, marketed to, nor intended for, individuals under 21 years of age. No one under the age of 21 is permitted to provide any information on or through the Services. If you are under 21 years of age, DO NOT: use or provide any information on or through the Services; use any of the Services’ features; use any interactive or public commenting feature on the Services; and/or provide any information about yourself to Coastal Cultivars. Coastal Cultivars does not and will not knowingly collect any information, including Personal Information, from any person under 21 years of age and Coastal Cultivars will take prompt steps to delete any such information if it is inadvertently received. If Coastal Cultivars learns that we have received Personal Information from any person under 21 years of age, Coastal Cultivars will delete that information. If you believe Coastal Cultivars might have information from or about any person under 21 years of age, please contact us immediately at email@example.com
7. International Concerns
The Services are meant for individuals within the United States. Coastal Cultivars only knowingly collects information from individuals within the United States. If you provide information to Coastal Cultivars from outside of the United States, you do so at your own risk. If you are outside of the United States, you are responsible for complying with any local laws regarding use of the Sites or other Coastal Cultivars Services, and related data collection.
You also agree and acknowledge that by providing any data through the Services, including Personal Information, that such information will be transferred to, and stored in, the United States. Further, your consent to this Policy followed by your submission of such information represents your agreement to that transfer.
If you are located in the European Economic Area (the “EEA,” which includes the 27 European Union Member States, Iceland, Lichtenstein and Norway), Switzerland or the United Kingdom (“UK”) (collectively, the “EU”), or if you are visiting the Sites or using other Services from other regions with laws governing data collection and use, please note that you are agreeing to the transfer of your information to the United States and processing globally. By providing your information, you consent to any transfer and processing in accordance with this Policy.
Coastal Cultivars will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Policy and no transfer of your Personal Information will take place to any organization or country unless there are appropriate controls in place that are consistent with industry standards and applicable laws and regulations, including with respect to the security of your Personal Information and other data.
8. External Links
The Services may contain links to external sites or other online services, including any links that may be embedded in third party advertisements, all of which are not directly controlled or owned by Coastal Cultivars. Coastal Cultivars is not responsible for the privacy practices and data collection policies for such external sites or online services. You should consult the privacy policies of those third-party services for details.
Coastal Cultivars also may allow interaction between the Services and third-party platforms and other external services online, including social media providers. Such interactions may include buttons and plugins that allow you to share information with others outside of Coastal Cultivars’ Services. Please consult the privacy policies of such third-party providers before using them to make sure you are comfortable with the level of sharing. If you do not want social media services to gather information on your usage of our Sites or any related Services, please do not click the buttons mentioned above.
