This Privacy Policy (this "Policy") outlines the type of information we may collect, how we might use such information, and the choices you have regarding the Personal Information we may possess about you.

We encourage you to read this Policy carefully. If you have any questions about this Policy, our use of your Personal Information, or your dealings with this website, please feel free to contact us by sending an email to the email address on our contact page.

We may update this Policy from time to time in our sole discretion to reflect changes in our use of your Personal Information and/or applicable law. Any changes made to this Policy will be reflected in an updated policy (denoted by an updated date above) posted on our website.

How We Use Personal Information

Any Personal Information collected and stored by us is used strictly for billing purposes, contacting our customers, and for such other purposes as are described in this Policy. We do not share any customer Personal Information with any third party other than those business partners which are directly involved in managing our day to day business operations, such as, without limitation, our billing and payment processes (our bank credit card processing center).

We reserve the right to disclose your Personal Information without notice or consent as it deems necessary (a) to conform to applicable law; (b) when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and property; (c) to protect the safety of our users and ourselves; (d) to comply with any judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on us.

Direct Email

Tampa Agricultural Products customers may voluntarily elect to receive emails from us by filling out sign-ups for e-newsletters or other web forms not related to payment. We may from time to time include important news, information, or offers within these emails when you have signed up for such emails. However, you may choose to opt-out of receiving any such emails, or change the frequency with which you receive such e-mails, at any time by sending us an email telling us to stop (if it is an e-newsletter), or by opting out on the bottom of any special offers we may send you from time to time.

Log Files

By accessing our website, our web visitor tracking internet servers automatically record information that your internet browser sends when you visit a website.  Virtually all web servers on the internet today automatically track visitors in a log file, even if nobody ever uses these logs. These logs may contain information such as your internet protocol (IP) address, browser version, domain name, language, date and time, the referring website and information in small text files known as cookie files (that may show how many times you have visited the site before, or may save the items you put in your shopping cart in case you want to complete your order at another time) to allow our customers the convenience of not having to re-enter all the items they entered into their shopping carts each time they check it. However, if you do no want to receive cookies, you may adjust the settings in your internet browser to reject cookies or to alert you when a cookie is placed on your computer(2). We do not collect or store any Personal Information via cookies on our servers.  The cookies (little text files) are stored in your temporary internet files folder, are guaranteed harmless, and are easily deleted.

General Internet User Privacy

Our site meters (Google Analytics and Sitemeter) gathers and aggregates statistical data, and may from time to time place persistent or temporary cookies on your hard drive when visiting our website. These cookies are not capable of tracking, retaining, or storing any Personal Information, and they are used for no other reason than to gather the same general internet information that is available to all internet service providers, search engines, and websites. Examples of this information include, without limitation, a visitor's general location based on IP address, information from the visitor's browser such as browser type, type of operating system, keywords used while searching, websites visited, and monitor resolution settings.

Our site meter servers (Google Analytics and / or Sitemeter) may from time to time also authorize and facilitate the use of cookies from trusted third party business partners to gather and aggregate additional, anonymous, and non-Personal Information data from general internet visitors for the purpose of providing us with additional information about our viewing audience so we can serve you better.

We do not gather, retain or store any data from these third party partners. Our site meter servers have chosen to partner only with businesses that have shown a strong commitment to online privacy and have represented and warranted to our site meter provider that any and all data collected on our behalf is non-Personal Information.

We do not condone, support, or participate in any activities that could potentially gather, retrieve or store any Personal Information about or from internet users.

Data Security

The security of your Personal Information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card information) on our registration forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL) through Mals-e Cart, one of the largest and most trusted and secure online payment shopping cart systems on the internet.

We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Information collected by us, both during transmission and once we receive it.

Our computer systems, and those of our site meter system are located in the United States of America.

We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy policies of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information.
