Collection and Use of Personal Information
Personal information collected by NutriAg is used for four main purposes. First, we collect information to enable the features of the Website. Second, we collect information to improve the Website by determining which of our products, features and services are most popular. Third, we may now or in the future collect information to personalize the experience of the users of the Website. Finally, we collect information to communicate with you, as permitted by law, and to inform you about NutriAg’s and third parties’ products, services and events.
We may also collect and use personal information for other purposes which are disclosed to you, and to which you consent (whether expressly or by implication by providing us with your personal information with knowledge of how we intend to use it), or to meet our legal obligations. For example, we may collect and use personal information to:
- establish, maintain and improve our customer relationship with you and provide you with offers, incentives, marketing programs or promotional material about us and our automotive products and services, such as brochures and newsletters;
- more effectively market to you our products and services;
- improve the products and services we offer through customer surveys conducted by us and participation in market research studies conducted by third parties;
- compile aggregate data for internal and external business purposes and generate and review reports and data about our customer and service usage patterns;
- provide you with services you request and respond to your comments, concerns or requests for information;
- assist our retailers to meet your product and services needs such as providing you with offers, reminders, marketing programs or promotional materials; and
- provide you with offers and information about related products and services offered by others which we think may be of interest to you.
We may also collect and/or use personal information without your consent for purposes that are permitted by applicable law, including but not limited to meeting our legal obligations, assisting in the investigation of a breach of an agreement or a law, assisting in law enforcement purposes, and protecting the business interests of NutriAg and our customers.
The types of personal information NutriAg collects may include: (1) names; (2) mailing addresses; (3) e-mail addresses; (4) biographical information such as household data, preferences, and demographic information; (5) home and/or mobile telephone numbers; (6) other personal information you choose to submit.
The means by which NutriAg collects such personal information may include:
(1) when you purchase, order, or request information about our products and services through the Website or through other means;
(2) when you access a NutriAg social media platform;
(3) when you sign up for e-mail notifications, electronic newsletters, or social media notifications from, or on behalf of, NutriAg;
(4) when you enter or participate in a NutriAg contest, event, promotion or sweepstakes, or respond to one of our surveys;
(5) when you provide NutriAg with comments, suggestions or other input through the Website;
(6) when you create a user account for use in connection with the Website (your “User Account”);
(7) when you otherwise choose to provide us or one of our retailers with personal information.
NutriAg also collects such personal information in our marketing efforts on third party websites. NutriAg may purchase such personal information from reputable third party vendors who provide us with reasonable assurances as to their compliance with applicable privacy laws, including ensuring that the form of consent that is required by law has been obtained. We may collect a list of names and addresses, which may include your name and address where the provider of the list has obtained appropriate consent, from list vendors to send promotions or product information to the names on the list.
To ensure our database addresses remain accurate, we also obtain address information from third party licensed data providers and other authorized parties, all of whom are obligated to comply with applicable privacy laws.
NutriAg or a partner may sponsor promotions, sweepstakes or contests through the Website. Your participation is entirely voluntary. Users may be asked to provide personal information including, among other things, name, email address or home address or to answer questions in order to participate.
Additional Ways that Information is Collected
Browser Log Files
Our servers automatically log each visitor to the Website and collect and record certain information about each visitor. We use this information to perform analytics on user experience while using the Website and to improve the functionality of our Website to better meet user wants and needs. This information includes or may include your “Internet Protocol”, or IP, address, browser language, browser type, operating system, domain names, browsing history (including time spent at a domain, time and date of your visit), referring/exit web pages and URLs, and number of clicks. The domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about the user other than the IP address from which the user has accessed the Website.
Some of our web pages and electronic communications may contain images, which may or may not be visible to you, known as Web Beacons (sometimes referred to as “clear gifs”). Web Beacons collect only limited information that includes a cookie number; time and date of a page view; and a description of the page on which the Web Beacon resides. We may also carry Web Beacons placed by third party advertisers. These Web Beacons do not carry any personal information and are only used to track usage of the Website and activities associated with the Website. See the Third Party Opt Out section below.
We may assign you a unique internal identifier to help keep track of your future visits. We use this information to gather aggregate demographic information about our visitors, and we use it to personalize the information you see on the Website and some of the electronic communications you receive from us. We keep this information for our internal use, and this information is not shared with others.
Third Party Opt Out
We may allow third-party companies to serve advertisements and/or collect certain anonymous information when you visit the Website. When you visit our Website, we will notify you regarding this collection of anonymous information, ask whether you accept such collection, and provide you with information on how to opt out of such collection. These companies may use non-personally identifiable information (e.g., click stream information, browser type, time and date, subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over) during your visits to the Website in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of greater interest to you. These companies typically use a cookie or third party Web Beacon to collect this information, as further described above. Through these technologies, the third party may have access to and use non-personalized information about your online usage activity.
You can opt-out of our online behavioral services through any one of the ways described below (you don't need to go to each opt-out site, one is sufficient). After you opt-out, you will continue to receive online advertisements, but those advertisements will no longer be as relevant to you.
- On the Ads that are served by us, you can opt out by using the “Ad Choices” option on our Ads. More information about Ad Choices is available at: http://youradchoices.ca/.
Disclosure to Third Parties of Non-Identifiable/Aggregated Information
We may share non-personally identifiable information (such as anonymous user usage data, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform types, number of clicks, etc.) with third parties to demonstrate the usage patterns for NutriAg’s advertisements, content, functionality promotions and/or services on the Website and/or on third party websites.
