Al's Family Farms Privacy Statement
Information Collection & Use
In order to place an order with Al's Family Farms (AFF), at the end of your order you will complete an order form, and create a user name and password. During this process you are required to give contact information (such as name, mailing address, e-mail address, etc.). We use this information to ship or contact you about the products on our site in which you have expressed interest.
Once you have set up your account information, you will periodically receive information from AFF regarding your order, special offers, and our seasonal catalog.
AFF is the sole owner of the information collected on www.alsfamilyfarms.com. AFF collects personally identifiable information from our users at several different points on our Web site.
If you purchase a product from us, we request certain personally identifiable information from you on our order form. You must provide contact information (such as name, e-mail, and shipping address) and financial information (such as credit card number, expiration date).
We use this information for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we will use this information to contact you.
Surveys or Contests
With our customers interests in mind, we may provide you the opportunity to participate in contests or surveys on our site. If you participate, we will request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code).
We use this information to make sure we are offering the best quality items to our customers, meeting the customer's needs, and getting feedback on the quality of our shipments.
Uses of Information
While information is the cornerstone of our ability to provide superior service, our most important asset is our customers' trust. Keeping customer information secure, and using it only as our customers would want us to, is a top priority for all of us at AFF.
- We will safeguard, according to strict standards of security and confidentiality, any information our customers share with us.
- We will limit the collection and use of customer information to the minimum we require to deliver superior service to our customers, which includes advising our customers about our products, services and other opportunities, and to administer our business.
- We will permit only authorized employees, who are trained in the proper handling of customer information, to have access to that information. Employees who violate our Privacy Promise will be subject to our normal disciplinary process.
- We will not reveal customer information to any external organization unless we have previously informed the customer in disclosures or agreements, been authorized by the customer, under contract with a third-party supplier, or are required by law.
- Whenever we hire other third-party organizations to provide support services, we will require them to conform to our policy standards and to allow us to audit them for compliance.
- We will attempt to keep customer files complete, up to date, and accurate. We will tell our customers how and where to conveniently access their account information (except when we're prohibited by law), and how to notify us about errors, which we will promptly correct.
We will continuously assess ourselves to ensure that customer privacy is respected. We will conduct our business in a manner that fulfills our promise.

Special Offers and Updates
We will occasionally send you information on products, seasonal offerings, and promotions. Out of respect for your privacy, we present the option not to receive these types of communications.
Personally identifiable information:
We do share personally identifiable information with Third Parties, only for the purpose of fulfilling your order with AFF.

We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Web site
We provide you the opportunity to 'opt-out' of having your personally identifiable information used for certain purposes, when we ask for this information. For example, if you purchase a product but do not wish to receive any additional online marketing material from us, you can indicate your preference on our order form. In order to opt-out of some services (annual catalog, gift list, etc.) you will need to call our offices at 1-888-617-6703.
